The benefits of cosmetic dentistry in Sydney

When most people think of cosmetic dentistry, they think of procedures like teeth whitening or veneers. While these procedures can certainly improve the appearance of your smile, they are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. For example, did you know that cosmetic dentistry can also help correct your bite problems?

If your teeth are misaligned, it can cause a number of problems, including pain when you chew and difficulty cleaning your teeth properly. By correcting the alignment of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help you avoid these problems and keep your mouth healthy. In addition, cosmetic dentistry can also be used to repair damage to your teeth caused by injury or disease. 

Whether you need a crown to cover a cracked tooth or implants to replace missing teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help restore your smile and quality of life. As you can see, there are many ways in which cosmetic dentistry can improve your oral health. So if you are considering any type of dental procedure, be sure to ask your dentist about the potential benefits of cosmetic dentistry.

How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

If you’re considering cosmetic dentistry, you’re probably wondering how much it will cost. At Corner 32 Dental, we offer a variety of payment options to make treatment affordable. 

We accept HICAPS, which means you can claim your dental insurance benefits on the spot. We also offer convenient payment plans so you can spread the cost of treatment over time. 

So whatever your budget, we can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Contact us today to learn more about our pricing options.

Kör Whitening

Discoloured teeth can be caused by many different lifestyle choices or issues with the teeth. Eating or drinking certain foods that can easily stain teeth, smoking or vaping, certain medications, aging and genetics are all common causes. Discoloured teeth can significantly affect confidence and self-esteem.

Kör Whitening is by far the most consistent and reliable whitening system that we have ever used here at Corner 32 Dental. We are proud and excited to be only one of a handful of clinics offering Kör Whitening in Sydney. It is so powerful that it is even effective for tetracycline-stained teeth! 

Everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of and confident in. Would you smile more if your teeth were whiter? If the answer is “yes”, then you owe it to yourself to read on to find out more about the incredible Kör Whitening system…

Clear Aligners

Straight teeth can be more attractive and healthier, and obtaining a beautiful smile has never been easier. Clear aligners, often known as Invisalign, are virtually invisible braces which utilise the very latest technology to move teeth discreetly and comfortably into the correct positions over time.

Aligners can correct a number of common orthodontic problems including overcrowded, misaligned or poorly spaced teeth. They are suitable for most age groups: children and teenagers through to adults. Patient compliance is important as the aligners must be worn regularly to work effectively. Following completion of aligner treatment, patients will be required to wear retainers, to hold the teeth in their new position.

What is the meaning of inlays and onlays?

Dental inlays and onlays are used to restore areas of tooth structure that have been lost due to decay or injury. Unlike dental fillings, which are placed directly into the cavity, inlays and onlays are fabricated outside of the mouth. 

Once they are made, the inlays and onlays are then bonded to the tooth using a special dental adhesive. Inlays are used to restore small areas of tooth structure, while onlays are used to restore larger areas. 

In some cases, both inlays and onlays can be used to restore a single tooth. Inlays and onlays can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain, and composite resin. The material used will depend on the location of the restoration and the biting surface of the tooth. In general, porcelain or composite resin is used for restoring teeth that are visible when you smile. 

Gold is usually used for restoring teeth that are located in the back of the mouth. Dental inlays and onlays can provide a strong, durable restoration that can last for many years.

How much do inlays and onlays cost?

The cost of these procedures will vary depending on the type of material used. Generally speaking, gold inlays and onlays are the most expensive option, while composite resin is the least expensive. Porcelain falls somewhere in the middle. 

The cost of these procedures will also vary depending on the dentist performing the work. While this may seem like a lot of money, it is important to remember that these procedures can help to preserve the health of your teeth for many years to come. As such, they are well worth the investment.

Why choose Invisalign?

While there are many reasons to choose Invisalign over traditional braces, the most popular reason is that Invisalign is practically invisible. Because the aligners are made of clear plastic material, they are much less noticeable than metal braces. This makes them ideal for adults who are concerned about their appearance during treatment.

Another key advantage of Invisalign is that they can be removed for eating and drinking, which means there are no food restrictions during treatment. With traditional braces, patients must be careful about what they eat to avoid damaging the brackets and wires.

Why choose Spark Aligners?

Spark Aligners are a great choice because they are affordable, comfortable, and easy to use. They are made of clear plastic, so they are barely visible when you wear them. And the best part is that they only need to be worn for 22 hours per day – making them perfect for busy people on the go.

How does clear aligner treatment work?

Clear aligner treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that fit tightly over your teeth, gently moving them into their predetermined positions. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks for a minimum of twenty two hours every day before being replaced with a fresh set. You can remove the aligners for brushing and flossing, and during mealtimes.

Do I need to have healthy teeth and gums to have clear aligner treatment?

Yes, this is an absolute must. Active gum disease or decay must be managed and well controlled before considering any type of orthodontic treatment. Immaculate oral hygiene is also essential during orthodontic treatment. Failure to brush and floss thoroughly every day may result in decalcifications (permanent white marks on teeth), decay or gum disease. Foods containing sugars and between meal snacks should be eliminated. Regular cleaning and check-ups at six monthly intervals, or more frequently if needed, will still be necessary to maintain the teeth in good health.

Will there be any pain or discomfort?

Clear aligners are quite comfortable. Some sensitivity or tenderness in the mouth can be expected in the first few days after changing to a new aligner but most patients manage well and almost never need pain relief.

How do I stop my teeth moving after I finish treatment?

Teeth move naturally with increasing age, just as hairlines recede and body parts sag. Teeth tend to relapse toward their original position following active orthodontic treatment. Full cooperation in wearing retainers is necessary to reduce this tendency. When retainer use is discontinued, some relapse is possible. Therefore, we recommend long term retention exactly as prescribed – RETENTION IS FOR LIFE! Types of retainers include fixed (permanent) retainers which are bonded to the back of the front six teeth and full coverage clear removable retainers. Your dentist will discuss the right type of retainer and retention protocol for you. 

How long will my treatment take?

An estimate of expected treatment time will be given at your consultation/planning appointment, but the total treatment time may extend beyond the original estimate. Lack of facial growth, poor patient compliance, broken appliances and missed appointments are all factors which lengthen the time of treatment. Occasionally, treatment objectives may have to be compromised. It may also become necessary to stop orthodontic treatment short of the desired result, after thoroughly consulting with the patient and/or parent before the treatment is discontinued (but this is extremely rare).

Will my teeth look perfect after my aligner treatment is finished?

An “ideal” cosmetic result cannot always be guaranteed with orthodontic treatment alone. Often, particularly with adult patients, pre-existing wear may lead to a less than ideal cosmetic result once the teeth have been aligned. In these cases, restorative treatment at the completion of orthodontic treatment, in the form of reshaping, composite bonding or veneers, may be required to achieve an aesthetically pleasing cosmetic result.

What are attachments?

Aligners occasionally need assistance for maintaining their grip on a tooth and their ability to achieve the required tooth movement. This is done using attachments. Attachments are small tooth-coloured bumps created with white filling material (composite) that are bonded onto the tooth/teeth for the duration of treatment. A small bubble in the aligner corresponds exactly to the attachment on the tooth. They are visible but only when looking very closely. You may choose not to have attachments placed but must understand that the final result may therefore be compromised.

What is interproximal reduction (IPR) or tooth stripping?

Interproximal reduction (IPR) is a process where the teeth may be very slightly filed down to create extra space. The amount of reduction may be up to as much as a quarter of a millimetre per tooth surface. This is generally hardly noticeable. The filing is performed using a thin metal strip or saw with diamond particles embedded into the side. Similar strips are regularly used by dentists to smooth fillings. 

Will I need to wear elastics?

Elastic wear may be required to improve the bite at the back teeth. If elastics are required, patient-specific instructions will be given prior to commencing treatment.

What happens if I don’t wear my aligners for the required amount of time?

Tooth movement can be achieved with very little force. However, the light force must be as continuous as possible. Full time wear (a minimum of 22 hours per day) is the most effective strategy. Aligners are only to be removed during mealtimes and for cleaning (brushing/flossing). Having said that, one of the benefits of aligners is the flexibility with current lifestyles so wear time can be adjusted if required ie. If hourly wear time is decreased, then the number of days per aligner set may be increased (eg. Aligners should be worn for 10-14 days instead of the standard 7 days).

What type of aligner systems are offered at Corner 32 Dental?

At Corner 32 Dental, we offer both Invisalign and Spark aligners. Invisalign is the most well-known clear aligner system and is very effective. Spark is a newer system which is also producing excellent results. Spark aligners are also clearer, thinner and more stain resistant. Your dentist will discuss both options to find which system will suit you best.

Why choose Kor whitening?

Kor whitening is one of the most popular teeth whitening methods available today. There are many reasons to choose Kor whitening, including its effectiveness, affordability, and convenience.

Kor whitening is an effective way to achieve whiter teeth. Kor uses a system that has been clinically proven to be effective at removing stains and discolouration from teeth. In addition, Kor offers a variety of different whitening gels that can be used to customise your treatment plan and maximise results.

Why does Kör Whitening work so well?

The oxygen from the whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving, and removing stain molecules producing unbelievable results. With Kör, the ability of your teeth to absorb oxygen is restored and this is the main reason for its ability to produce such huge smile transformations!

How long will the results last?

There is almost always a small degree of relapse after whitening treatment has been completed. However, part of the Kör Whitening system is periodic maintenance which means the results are virtually permanent. Everyone receives a personalised easy to follow maintenance schedule that’s recommended for them to keep the result looking the same as it did the day that treatment was finished!

Is it safe?

Kör Whitening products have been studied well and do not lead to any permanent damage to the teeth or gums. They are 100% safe to use but are NOT recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Kör Whitening is also gluten free. 

Will there be any pain or discomfort?

 In most cases, Kör Whitening produces little to no sensitivity. However, in patients who already have sensitive teeth, the teeth can become slightly more sensitive than usual during whitening treatment. There are many ways to manage this though, including applying Kör desensitiser during treatment as prescribed, the use of desensitising toothpaste, alterations to whitening frequency etc. and should not stop anyone from considering treatment.

Is there a minimum age or age limit for teeth whitening?

Whitening is not recommended before the age of 14 but there are individual factors to consider and therefore should be discussed with your dentist. The younger the teeth are, the quicker and more impressive the whitening results are. On the flip side, there is absolutely no age limit for whitening!

How white will my teeth get?

The results with Kör Whitening are dramatic (see the many amazing Before and After photos on our Instagram feed), lightening up to 16 shades or more sometimes. The amount of whitening depends on which whitening protocol is used and your dentist can discuss these options with you to determine which one will suit you best. The results with Kör Whitening are dramatic (see the many amazing Before and After photos on our Instagram feed), lightening up to 16 shades or more sometimes. The amount of whitening depends on which whitening protocol is used and your dentist can discuss these options with you to determine which one will suit you best.

Will my teeth look very white and unnatural?

No, never! Teeth whitening as a term is slightly misleading as what is really occurring is that the stains are being lifted from the teeth, so the teeth are actually being lightened (rather than whitened). This means the natural base shade and individual characteristics of your teeth will shine through and the result will always look beautiful and completely natural. Teeth that look very white and fake have usually been restored with veneers (plastic or porcelain facings). 

Will my existing dental work whiten as well?

Unfortunately, no. Whitening only works on natural teeth so any fillings, crowns or other dental work will remain the same colour. This might mean these will need to be changed after whitening if they can be seen and are affecting the smile. Likewise, if you need dental work on teeth that are visible when you talk or smile but would prefer your teeth to be whiter, it’s best to whiten your teeth before having your dental work done.

Do I need to be on a special diet or change my habits during, or after, whitening?

Certain highly pigmented foods and drinks (eg. black coffee/tea, red wine, curries) and lifestyle choices (smoking/vaping) should ideally be avoided or minimised as much as possible during whitening as well as afterwards. If this is not possible, it may take slightly longer to achieve the ideal result and a more intense maintenance protocol will likely be required to maintain the final result.

How does the Kör Whitening System work?

This will depend on the type of system chosen which will vary between individuals. The most commonly used system at Corner 32 is the Kör Max Whitening system. The process involves taking moulds (or scans) or your top and bottom teeth to make custom-made whitening trays which are very thin and comfortable to wear. The whitening gel is worn inside of these trays overnight, every night, for 2 weeks while sleeping and then there is usually a one-hour in-chair whitening visit at the clinic. You will then be given a maintenance kit to take home and a personalised recommended maintenance schedule.

What is tetracycline staining?

Tetracycline staining is dark staining embedded within teeth, caused by certain antibiotics taken at a young age, while the adult teeth are still forming. For years we have known that tetracycline stains have been all but impossible to whiten. But why are these stains so resistant? It is because normal tooth darkening is caused by stains being trapped within the microstructure of the teeth whereas these stains are actually bonded strongly to the structure of the teeth themselves.

Although the degree of staining depends on many factors, and results of treatment cannot be guaranteed, it is amazing to now be able to offer a CONSERVATIVE treatment option such as the KöR Ultra-T Whitening System. Once upon a time, the only option for these cases would have been quite expensive and involved the grinding away of healthy tooth structure for porcelain veneers or crowns.
