VENEERS Composite & Porcelain

– – – – –

A new smile can enhance your appearance and improve your confidence. But any cosmetic change can be a significant decision.

Veneers are a thin layer of composite resin or ceramic porcelain material covering the front surface of your teeth. They can be used to change the colour, shape, texture and alignment of your teeth.

Dr. Jang uses the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques to enhance the aesthetic outcome. Veneers are a great way to provide a new look. To book a complimentary cosmetic consultation, call our office at (02) 4325 3221 or email.

TEETH WHITENING

– – – – –

Teeth whitening lightens the colour of your teeth to enhance the appearance of your smile and give you more confidence.

Professional teeth whitening is a safe procedure that will not harm your teeth and gums. It does not strip the enamel off your teeth. It works by removing the intrinsic stain and penetrates the enamel surface to lift off the stains.

There are a number of reasons for the discolouration of your teeth and the results of the whitening procedure may vary. We have found that yellow or yellow-brown teeth tend to bleach better than bluish-grey teeth.

Whitening can be done in our Gosford practice, or we can give you special instructions to follow from home. If you would like to find out more, we’d be happy to discuss your teeth whitening options with you. Book a consultation appointment today!

Understanding Dental Bleaching
Dental Bleaching is suitable in some circumstances, depending on the extent the teeth are stained.

Teeth that are stained yellow tend to bleach very well in most cases, while teeth that are brown in colour tend to have lesser results. Teeth that look blue or grey often do not respond to bleaching at all.

Patients that have tooth-coloured fillings or bondings may find that bleaching is not the most appropriate option. Fillings and bondings will not whiten with the rest of the tooth. This can cause the discoloured fillings and bondings to become more evident.

In these circumstances, opting for porcelain veneers or additional dental bonding may provide better results. We encourage you to discuss your options with your dentist to get greater insight into what options may be the most suitable treatment per your circumstances.

We can let you know if bleaching is right for you. Contact us today.

Understanding In-Office Bleaching
If bleaching is determined to be a suitable choice for you, your dentist may recommend an in-office bleaching session.

During this treatment, your dentist will apply a rubber shield or protective gel to your gums to ensure the bleach does not affect them.

The bleaching agent will be applied to your teeth for a period of up to an hour. Sometimes a laser may also be used to enhance the results. Contact us today to find out if in office bleaching is your solution for a brighter smile.

Understanding At-Home Bleaching
It is also possible to bleach your teeth and whiten them at home using products that are provided by your dentist. Usually, these home bleaching kits feature a gel that will be used in a custom designed trays.

Some of these products are meant to be used overnight for a period of one to two weeks, while others are more suitable for use twice a day for a period of two weeks. Always carefully read the instructions on the packaging or take note of special instructions that your dentist provided.

We can let you know if you would be an ideal candidate for at-home bleaching. Contact us today.

Are There Any Side Effects of Bleaching?
Sometimes you may experience mild side effects during the bleaching process. Some individuals notice increased sensitivity in the teeth.

This sensitivity is generally temporary and tends to dissipate after the bleaching treatment has been completed. You may also experience soft tissue irritation within the mouth if your bleaching trays doesn’t fit correctly. This can be remedied by requesting a custom-fitted bleaching trays from your dentist. If you have any concerns about potential side effects, we encourage you to contact us for more information.
