Finding the right cosmetic dentist in Sydney is different to finding the right general dentist

When seeking treatment, knowing what your dentist can and cannot do is important. For example, a general dentist may be able to perform cosmetic treatments, but a prosthodontist has spent an extra three years at university studying cosmetic dentistry.

The field of prosthodontics is devoted to the maintenance and rehabilitation of your oral health, aesthetics and function by restoring teeth and replacing missing teeth.

Because cosmetic dentistry is about more than white, sparkly teeth

The best cosmetic dentistry is helping to provide a patient with a healthy, natural-looking smile.

Many patients visit Ironside Advanced Dental looking to improve the appearance of their smile. Often this can mean placing a few veneers after providing a whitening treatment.

Or for other patients, a dental crown may be placed over a damaged, chipped or cracked tooth. At Ironside Advanced Dental we use porcelain-on-metal crowns, the porcelain is colour-matched to the shade and colour of your natural teeth and the metal is to provide strength and protection for the tooth.

Ironside Advanced Dental in Sydney can take care of your cosmetic dentistry needs

At our Sydney CBD practice, we offer a wide range of cosmetic, restorative and preventive dental treatments. And part of providing the best cosmetic treatment is looking at your teeth in relation to your teeth.

In a previous article: What is holistic dentistry? Or, why looking at your smile to treat your teeth is important we discuss how “your treatment should be about restoring the health of your smile while achieving realistic aesthetic results.”

A general dentist may not think to ask if you’re happy with the shade of your teeth before placing veneers. Why would they ask this?

When placing dental veneers they are colour matched to the shade and colour of your teeth. And they cannot be whitened later on. So, if you’re not happy with the colour of your smile your best option is to have teeth whitening prior to treatment. This means that if you require tooth whitening down the track your veneers won’t look out of place.
