What a smile makeover can do for you

Restore the appearance and functionality of your teeth

Do you know how important your baby (or milk) teeth are?

These teeth are necessary for the development of speech, as well as getting your jaw used to chewing and having teeth. Then these teeth fall out to be replaced by adult teeth.

The adult teeth are the last set of teeth we get; which should emphasise their importance. It is why in dentistry there is a wide range of treatments to protect and strengthen a tooth:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Dental Crowns
  • Fillings
  • Inlays and Onlays
  • Fissure sealants
  • General preventive dentistry

Then there are also treatments to replace missing teeth and improve oral health:

  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants

Replacing a missing tooth is good for your remaining teeth, jawbone and bite. If you do not replace a missing tooth it can cause the teeth on either side of the gap to become crooked: which can affect your bite.

Tooth loss can—vicariously—lead to further tooth loss

When you lose a tooth, the jawbone ‘holding’ the tooth root in place starts to dissolve. Over a period of months, this can result in jawbone shrinkage which affects surrounding teeth. Once this jawbone has gone it will not grow back. The only way to treat this problem is with bone graft surgery—if you are eligible.

Treatments such as dental implants are a great way to replace a tooth and look after your jawbone, as well as your bite.

A dental implant, unlike a dental bridge, replaces the tooth root and crown. This provides you with a whole-tooth replacement.

Dental bridges and dentures only replace the crown on your tooth (the part of the tooth visible about the gum line).

At Ironside Advanced Dental in Sydney, we offer a range of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments to improve the health and appearance of your smile

One of the most popular treatments carried out at our Sydney dental practice is a smile makeover. This is a combination of cosmetic and restorative treatments to give you a beautiful, healthy-looking smile.

Treatments that can be included in a smile makeover include:

With a combination of these treatments, Dr Ironside can enhance your smile. All the restorations are made from a composite material to blend with the colour and shade of your natural smile. You then can have a mouthful of healthy-looking, strong teeth to continue eating and speaking, unencumbered by oral health issues.

Preparing for a smile makeover

Before you undergo a smile makeover, Dr Ironside will assess your oral health and determine what the best combination of treatments for your oral condition is. Additionally, if you are suffering from gum disease this must be treated prior to undergoing any restorative or cosmetic surgery.

The Ironside Difference

The goal of a smile makeover is for your teeth to look natural. Dr Ironside will select the most appropriate treatments and ensure that your smile looks and feels natural.
