Enhance Your Smile and Discover New Confidence with Cosmetic Dentistry.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Modern dentistry has, day by day, turned to a deep respect for beauty as a fundamental proposal for the transformation and restoration of the smile.

Today, when thinking about restoring a tooth, we don’t just look at the appearance, color and shape of the tooth. The dentist stopped looking inside his patients’ mouths, to looking outside their mouths. The smile went from being white to pink and white. The gingival contour, lip posture, dental alignment, etc. are attributes that were not observed before. The beauty of the smile and its restoration depend on a multitude of factors that translate beauty.

In Cosmetic Dentistry, we can solve your Occlusion (bite) through porcelain crowns. We can even use adhesive restorations to change the shape and size of your teeth. The gum can be reshaped to better contour the teeth. Cracks and fractures can be resolved, and your teeth can be white and beautiful.

You have several options in the different procedures in cosmetic dentistry, from total mouth reconstruction to small and specific problems such as discoloured teeth.

Despite all the existing technology, the most important thing before making a decision is the conversation between the patient and the dentist, who needs to have the critical and artistic sense to successfully perform a Cosmetic Dentistry procedure.

Problems That Cosmetic Dentistry Can Fix

There are many reasons to consider cosmetic dentistry. With today’s cosmetic dentistry technologies it’s never been easier to create your perfect smile. A beautiful smile not only helps to create better first impressions, but can also help you to more easily maintain great oral health.

Cosmetic Dentistry can rectify the following issues:

  • Teeth that are too small
  • Stained or discoloured teeth
  • Uneven, misaligned or overcrowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Gummy Smile
  • Old or failing dental work
  • Metal fillings, crowns or inlays
  • Missing teeth
  • Gum disease and other infections
  • Tooth decay of varying degrees
  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Trauma
  • And much more

What Are The Procedures Provided Under Cosmetic Dentistry?

The best way to determine exactly which cosmetic procedures are necessary for you is to come in for a free cosmetic consultation with Dr. Cristian Dunker. You can be sure that he will take the time not just to examine you thoroughly, but also to listen about your goals, your needs and your fears. Together, you will work out a personalised treatment plan designed to meet your specific needs. By customising the treatment to each individual, we can help ensure that the patient is completely satisfied with the result.

ArtSmiles Technology: The Very Best In Cosmetic Dentistry

ArtSmiles has a state-of-the-art dental lab located in-office to provide our patients with the best dental experience and results.

So, what does having an in-house dental lab mean for you, our patient?

  • Eliminates extra dental visits
  • Allows for same-day porcelain crowns
  • Goodbye messy impression materials
  • Better aesthetics
  • Long-lasting restorations

New dental technologies and specialized instrumentation means patients spend much less time in a dental chair. One such innovation is called CEREC 3D. It allows the dentist to quickly restore your damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings and can be completed in a single visit, saving you time and the inconvenience of multiple visits with other procedures.

In our continued effort to provide the highest levels of comfort and convenience along with quality outcomes for our patients, we have introduced our newest digital impression scanner to our practice.

For those who find that “old school” process of messy impressions as uncomfortable or causing gagging, our digital scanning technology eliminates those problems. The scanner provides exceptional digital images in typically three to five minutes using a small pen like instrument. The images capture precise details of both your teeth and gums which then form the basis for the completion of several types of dental restorations including crowns, implants bridges and orthodontics.

In a nutshell, digital impressions offer you these advantages:

  • eliminates the need for messy, multiple impressions and associated gagging
  • allows the fitting of more accurate restorations
  • reduces the possibility for impression errors
  • patients can view images in real time
  • restorations can be completed in our office

While our patients are understandably concerned about x-ray exposure, x-rays are a valuable and necessary resource to detect dental disease.

At ArtSmiles, your safety is one of priorities. X-rays performed in our office are  safe with our advanced x-ray machines. Our team uses only the necessary exposure required for your digital x-ray. You can rest assure that you are receiving the best dental care in the safest way possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Your oral health is always the first priority. Therefore, you’ll need to be infection-free to be eligible for any cosmetic dental procedure. If you have an existing issue, though, it’s not the end of the world. Our Dentists can provide the care needed to restore your dental health, so you can move forward with achieving the smile you’ve always wanted.

The best way to find out if Cosmetic Dentistry is right for you is to visit ArtSmiles. Dr. Dunker will answer all of your questions during the complimentary consultation.

First and most important is proper treatment plan. It begins with a conversation about your oral health and beauty goals and what you want to achieve with your smile. Next, Dr. Cristian Dunker will perform a thorough evaluation of your mouth and surrounding structures. He will prescribe necessary X-rays, images and relevant tests, review your dental history, check for bite and neuromuscular problems, and make treatment recommendations. 

Our modern digital radiography technologies are imperative to delivering a precise dental diagnosis. This will reveal if gums are healthy or require periodontal treatment before starting any cosmetic work. Untreated periodontal disease will jeopardize the results of any dental work. 

Your dentist on the Gold Coast provides an array of services geared toward helping you achieve a dazzling new smile. Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums and your desires, here’s what you can choose from:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Composite Veneers
  • Cosmetic Gum
  • Recontouring
  • Dental Implants
  • All-on-4 Dental Implants
  • Cosmetic Fillings
  • Dental Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Aligners

It really depends on two things:

1. How compromised was your case to begin with? and which expert dentist is performing your cosmetic wrk?

2. How well do you take care of your teeth? and if so do you follow up on your periodontal and cosmetic maintenance visits?

Having said that, We have seen many cases that have been doing great and functioning properly for more than 20 years, and also have seen cases which needed to be partly redone in 7 to 8 years. Please understand that there is no guarantee on how long the cosmetic work lasts.

Dr. Cristian Dunker has the knowledge and experience to offer a perfect combination of different advanced dental procedures required for cosmetic dentistry on the Gold Coast.

The cost of a Cosmetic Procedure can vary depending on the scale of treatment required as well as the type of treatment that you get. Our experts will recommend a treatment option best suited to you and give you an estimate of the price and payment options during your free consultation visit. 

We offer a number of dental financing options that enable you to pay over time. We accept a wide range of payment methods and have plenty of flexible pay later financial options including Afterpay, TLC, Humm and Access My Super. 

Please call us at (07) 5588-3677 or Book Online now for your no obligation, free initial consultation. We look forward to helping you get your best smile ever!

With modern dental anaesthetics and sedation, no dental procedure has to hurt. Dr. Cristian Dunker can administer sedation dentistry to make your appointments comfortable and relaxing. He will also recommend the appropriate level of medication for your comfort and may suggest over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers to take after treatment.
