What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic or aesthetic dentistry is comprehensive oral care that combines science and art to optimally improve dental health, aesthetics and function. Many procedures can be undertaken to improve the appearance of your smile. In a study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, researchers found that 90% of patients agree that an attractive smile is an important asset. Our Dental practice offers a full spectrum of cosmetic dental procedures and processes to help you achieve a smile you will love.

How much does Cosmetic Dentistry cost?

The team at Riverside Dental are proud to have been a part of countless smile transformations, and have witnessed first-hand the incredible benefits a beautiful and healthy smile can have.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Teeth that have been heavily restored, badly broken, fractured, traumatised or root filled can require a tooth crown.
At Riverside Dental we take great care in the preparation of your tooth for a crown. We make use of the latest electric motor hand pieces and diamond coated tipped burs, as well as enhanced magnification including the latest Seiler Evolution XR6 Dental microscope. Tooth crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure by completely surrounding it and will also improve your smile. A dental crown is available in different materials from aesthetically pleasing ‘all porcelain’ crowns to all gold crowns. At Riverside Dental we will help to make the decision of which crown will work best for you.
The procedure for a crown to be placed onto a tooth usually requires two visits. During the first appointment, Dr. Patrick will remove any disease or decay from the tooth to ensure that the foundation is strong. And then shape the tooth, ready for an impression or mould to be taken. A temporary crown made of plastic is constructed and placed over the tooth until the next visit. The moulds are then dispatched to the dental technician who constructs the crown to fit precisely to the mould. At the second visit, the temporary crown is removed and the final crown is tried attached and checked for its fit. Minor adjustments are often made and once the patient has accepted the feel and the look of the crown it is cemented into place.
Dental crowns have a lifetime of approximately 7-10 years with some lasting a lot longer. At Riverside Dental we offer 5 years’ warranty on some of our crowns so you have the peace of mind in knowing that we stand by what we produce. Click here to learn more about our dental crown options.
At Riverside Dental we are proud to be able to offer our patients one of the most effective teeth whitening systems available today.
The KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching™ system is available as an at-home whitening kit or as a combination of at home and in-office whitening. Other forms of teeth whitening products often have trouble achieving satisfactory results in adult patients. This is because the older you are the more stubborn the staining on your teeth can be. The KöR whitening system penetrates deeply into the tooth micro-structure, flushing out staining debris that has built up over the years. For visible results that really achieve that “wow!” factor, speak to us about teeth whitening today. Learn more about KöR teeth whitening.
Porcelain veneers are essentially a custom-made shell that is placed on the front of your tooth. The purpose of veneers is to improve the aesthetic of discoloration, cracking, chipping and gaps between teeth. Many celebrities achieve their million dollar smiles with veneers. They are a great option for completely transforming the appearance of your smile. Learn more about our porcelain veneers and what they can do for you here.
Dentures are removable appliances that can be used to replace one tooth or a full set of teeth. Generally, they are constructed out of a type of plastic called acrylic. Plastic teeth are set into pink acrylic to mimic a tooth and gum. They are a cost-effective option for the replacement of missing teeth. Dentures can also be made out of metal with acrylic teeth and gum attached. These are more widely approved and accepted by patients as they are not as bulky. Over time they do become looser as the gum shrinks and the denture can wear away. Click here to learn more about dentures.
