Invisalign Dentist

Do you have crooked teeth that make you feel embarrassed every time you smile? The good news is that there are now modern ways of straightening teeth that don’t use the old metal braces.

Invisalign® has straightened the teeth of over 12 million people over 20 years. It is made of clear plastic that is perfectly moulded to what your perfect smile will be. Being removable, you can eat, brush and floss with ease. It is virtually unbreakable so there is no need to visit the dentist to get broken wires mended. The best part is that, compared to old metal braces, Invisalign® may straighten your teeth within shorter time frames.

Teeth whitening dentist

Have you found that no amount of brushing makes your teeth whiter? Medications, genetics, the environment – there are many reasons why your teeth may not have the pearly lustre you desire. The most common factor is the food and drinks we consume which can infiltrate our tooth enamel and stain the dentin below, making our teeth look darker and more yellow.

The Queen Mother’s notoriously poor, discolored teeth...

In 1900, when the Queen Mother was born, dentistry was invasive and treatments often resulted in extractions.  She was lived in a time without the benefits of fluoride and when teeth whiteness was not as much of an issue nor possibility as it is today.  Modern cosmetic dentistry has made significant advances with the help of knowledge, devices and technology.

With procedures and techniques like sleep dentistry, EMS Airflow and our iTero scanner your dental wellness can be maintained with less discomfort, in less time and with better outcomes than ever before

What you should know about dental veneers

Are your teeth chipped or broken, smaller, pointed or unusually shaped, with gaps between or severe discoloured? Porcelain veneers will transform your smile with teeth that are even and a natural colour.

Porcelain veneers are tooth-coloured, thin shells that are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are most commonly applied to the top front eight teeth. They can be expensive but as porcelain veneers last longer, look more natural and they don’t stain as much as other types of veneers, they are a better investment.

The process can take around three weeks. The first appointment is a consultation and examination where we discuss the health of your teeth and your goals and explain the procedure to you. The next time we meet, we make a model of your teeth, prepare your teeth by shaving them a little to prepare the surface for bonding the porcelain veneer on and fit temporary veneers. At your third visit, we clean and polish your teeth and fit your veneers. If you follow a good dental hygiene regime, your porcelain veneers could last for 20 years

Cosmetic dentistry for a more youthful appearance

Cosmetic dentists also offer procedures such as Botox, Dysport and dermal filler injections to enhance your facial features. All are administered by injection.

Botox and Dysport are produced from botulinum toxin. Though toxic, it is safe when used in small amounts. Both are approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are made from a natural sugar already present in the human body.

Botox treats many different types of wrinkles, such as laugh lines, crow’s feet, and the wrinkles on your forehead.

Dysport corrects the frown lines, especially if they are moderate to severe, between your eyebrows.

Dermal fillers reshape lips, the chin and jawline. By filling in lines and evening out the texture, dermal filler can enhance your face’s natural shape.

Cosmetic dentistry for better health

Crooked teeth not only look unsightly but can be bad for your eating and sleeping habits too not just your dental health.  Bad teeth alignment can influence how your jaw closes, how you chew and digest and how you sleep. Paladin Dental has the latest in 3D orthodontic scanning technology. We use an iTero scanner to assist us with the best treatment for implants and restoration. Its ability to show us how to fit Invisalign® aligners more accurately cuts down the treatment time and the number of appointments you need.

We use EMS AIRFLOW® which proves to be a most effective method for removing stubborn plaque and tough stains.

At Paladin Dental we know that dental wellness is more than just cleaning teeth. We aim to treat the whole person so you can look great and feel confident.
