Your ideal smile with cosmetic dentistry Cosmetic dentistry refers to the stream of dental treatment that deals with enhancing your smile by improving the alignment and appearance of teeth and gums. This treatment is generally most suitable for people who have an uneven crooked set of teeth, have chipped or broken teeth have gaps between teeth, or are just considering treatments like teeth whitening to improve their overall appearance. Melbourne based, Sunshine Dental Group has an experienced team of dental professionals able to provide a wide array of cosmetic dental surgery treatments, ranging from cleaning and scaling of teeth, fillings, crowns, bridges and porcelain veneers, to name a few. Let’s examine just a few of these, and how they can have you smiling brightly. 1. Teeth Whitening: Over time our teeth get discoloured or stained due to excessive exposure to caffeinated beverages, alcohol, and smoking. Teeth Whitening is a non-invasive, pain-free cosmetic dental procedure aimed to attain a brighter set of teeth and an ideal dazzling smile. This procedure makes use of LED lights or high-grade medical bleaching agents. There are no harmful chemicals used, thereby eliminating any risk of harm to the mouth and gums. The results are visible almost immediately over a single session. Dental teeth whitening is much more effective and longer lasting than over the counter teeth whitening kits available at the pharmacy. 2. Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are a painless and cost-effective way to achieve your smile makeover. This is a non-surgical option and a convenient alternative to braces and are the preferred solution to achieve the ideal smile you have always wished for.

Wise words of wisdom teeth The very idea of wisdom teeth removal can seem at first to be a bit daunting. Some people choose to avoid it, and try and manage the pain, rather than having the tooth removed. But if you are in pain, or can feel your wisdom teeth coming through, here is some information to help make the decision. What is a wisdom tooth? Also known as the third molar, wisdom teeth are the teeth at the very back of the upper and lower jaw and the last teeth to come through. This usually occurs in the late teens to early twenties and gets the term ‘wisdom’ name for this reason. The tooth comes through when the person is purportedly ‘wiser’ than they were in their childhood. What does it do? It is believed the original purpose of a wisdom tooth was to help human ancestors grind up plant tissue, as we lacked the ability to digest cellulose. However, over time and as our jaws have become smaller, we no longer need the vestigial molar. So what’s the problem? The issue arises with how and where the wisdom tooth comes through. Sometimes the wisdom tooth comes through at an angle, pushing into the gum or tooth beside it. Dentists call this Impaction. This can lead to several symptoms, some of which are: Crowding of the front teeth Decay in the wisdom or adjacent teeth Infection of the surrounding gum What should I do now? Consult a dentist.
