Our cosmetic treatment options:
The history of cosmetic dentistry
Generally, when we think of the oral hygiene of people living in bygone eras, it’s not a very pretty picture that comes to mind. Think decay, tooth loss, discolouration, cavities, etc. The aesthetics of the smile weren’t at the top of people’s minds when there were much more urgent matters of survival at hand.
The focus on having teeth that aren’t simply functional, but also beautiful is a relatively recent one, with modern cosmetic dentistry rooted in the invention of resin cement in the 1980’s. However, throughout history, there have been many developments that led us to where we are at today.
Ancient Teeth Whitening
In Ancient Rome, urine was used as a tooth whitener! Believe it or not, the ammonia in urine has some stain-busting properties. However, we don’t blame you if you’d prefer our in-chair whitening treatment to this ancient alternative.
In medieval times, dentistry was performed by barbers. They used to offer teeth-whitening services where they filed down teeth and then coated them with a “whitening” substance. However, this substance often destroyed the tooth’s enamel, thereby killing the tooth.
The First Dentures
Tooth replacement has been recorded as far back as 700 B.C., when dentures were made out of ivory, bone, human teeth or animal teeth. There is also evidence of shells being hammered into the gum to replace teeth in Ancient Egypt. Dentures using bone or ivory continued in the middle ages, and they also tried using human teeth from dead bodies to replace their own, but these were most often rejected by the recipient’s body.
In the 1700’s they began using porcelain to create dentures – a material still used in cosmetic dentistry today. However, they also attempted placing metal into the sockets of missing teeth, which was not successful and was rejected by the body.
Modern Smile Beautification
It wasn’t until the 1900’s that many of the mainstays of today’s cosmetic dentistry were developed. Treatments such as dental veneers, dental implants, composite fillings, dental bonding, dental bridges, dental crowns and teeth whitening have been hugely aided in their development by relatively recent advancements in technology.
We are lucky to live in a time when patients have so many options to safely and successfully improve the appearance of a smile!
Cosmetic dentistry treatment
Our Melbourne cosmetic dentist team can offer a range of dentistry treatments to improve the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your smile or bite. If you are considering becoming a patient, we encourage you to pay us a visit, speak with one of our professionals so they may evaluate your individual condition, and suggest an appropriate treatment. We work closely with our patients to take them through our services step by step, ensuring you are completely in the loop and understand what we can offer you.
Teeth whitening treatments
One of the many cosmetic services our dentists offer includes teeth whitening. If your smile has lost its original lustre, or has become stained due to smoking, consuming certain foods or drinks, or simply from old age, we can offer you a treatment to help you regain that original glossy, white look.
Many people who have lost one, or multiple teeth, can often suffer from feelings of insecurity or self-consciousness, due to how this affects their overall facial expression. Cosmetic dentures offer a more immediate and efficient means of tooth replacement and can be tailored specifically to match your existing teeth. You’ll be amazed by the difference our dentures can make and how they can drastically improve your smile.
Porcelain veneers and crowns
Another form of cosmetic dentistry procedure we offer involves porcelain crowns and veneers. These treatments are designed for those who have chipped, fractured, damaged, or misshapen teeth and are looking for a reliable treatment to help improve their aesthetic appeal.
