Here at Mysmile Clinic in Elsternwick, smile makeovers can include any of the following treatments:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Cosmetic teeth straightening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Crowns
  • Facial aesthetics (anti-wrinkle dermal fillers).

These treatments are chosen for their versatility and their transformative power.

Smile makeover: teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatments are one of the most common cosmetic treatments that patients seek. This is probably because patients can get a quick, cost-effective boost to the appearance of their smile.

There are generally two types of teeth whitening treatments. They both work on the same principle of bleaching the patient’s teeth with a whitening gel. The only difference being the strength of the whitening gel.

Treatments that take place in the dentist’s chair use a stronger whitening gel that can change the shade of a patient’s teeth much quicker. Home-whitening treatments can be used on their own or after in-practice whitening to push the shade even brighter.

Smile makeover: cosmetic teeth straightening

In recent years, different types of teeth straightening have been emerging. In the past, traditional braces were the only real option to straighten a patient’s teeth.

Now, there are treatments that can straighten a patient’s teeth in a matter of months. Cfast focuses on the patient’s front six teeth, making the treatment time much faster.

Smile makeovers in Elsternwick include cosmetic braces like Cfast because of their fast-acting nature.

Smile makeover: porcelain veneers

One treatment that can help with the alignment, shape and colour of a patient’s teeth is the application of a porcelain veneer. Veneers cover the patient’s natural tooth and can be crafted to fit perfectly into a patient’s smile.

Because veneers can help multiple issues, they are favoured in smile makeovers in Elsternwick.

In most cases, not all of the mentioned treatments are needed to complete a smile makeover and a patient can get their dream smile by combining just a few treatments.
