COsmetic DENTISTRY

AT REFRESH DENTAL SPA, WE BELIEVE EVERY PERSON SHOULD BE PROUD OF THEIR SMILE.

We have a range of cosmetic treatments available to help you achieve the look you want to let your inner beauty shine through.

 

Veneers

Smiling is an important communication skill needed to generate personal and professional success, and veneers are one of the easiest ways to achieve a perfect smile. 

If you have noticed your teeth yellowing, or you have multiple issues you would like to fix at one time, then veneers are for you.

In as little as two appointments, our experienced team will use porcelain veneers to enhance your natural smile for the next decade. Our veneers are custom made specifically to suit your needs.

VENEERS CAN COVER OR REPAIR SEVERAL COSMETIC TEETH COMPLAINTS

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Gaps or unwanted spaces between teeth
  • Asymmetrical teeth
  • Teeth that are too long or too short
  • Crooked teeth (that do not require orthodontic attention)
  • Teeth with weakened enamel (which can absorb coloured food and drink like red wine)

At your first consultation, we will discuss your individual needs, check the health of your teeth and gums and discuss your desired results.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE PROCEDURE

First, the surface of the teeth receiving veneers is lightly buffed, removing a small amount of enamel (0.5 – 1.0mm). Removing enamel prevents your teeth from looking oversized and helps create a strong bond with the porcelain veneers. Removing enamel will not affect the strength or function of your teeth.

A mould of your teeth is prepared and used as a template to create your porcelain veneers. This ensures a perfect fit and alignment with your gum-line, creating a natural-looking smile.

During a second appointment, your veneers will be seated in place and secured with dental ‘cement’, which is a long-lasting bonding solution. We will adjust them for a comfortable and ideal fit with your surrounding and opposing teeth before they are polished to a natural lustre.

We may also recommend teeth whitening in conjunction with veneers for a cohesive and realistic look.

Benefits of Custom Veneers

There are many benefits to using custom veneers, including

  • Stain resistance
  • Increased strength
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Natural results
  • Long term solution
  • Restoration of teeth functionality
  • A comprehensive solution to a range of problems

How do I make my veneers last?

Maintaining good oral hygiene is just as crucial for the longevity of your new veneers as it is for your natural teeth.

Although veneers are porcelain, they are still bonded to your natural teeth, which are still susceptible to decay and gum disease. We recommend visiting Refresh Dental Spa for regular dental check-ups.

Teeth Whitening

TEETH WHITENING IS A SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE TREATMENT THAT CAN MAKE A BIG IMPACT ON YOUR APPEARANCE.

While you may have lovely straight teeth, perhaps they have lost the luminosity they once had, leaving you a little disheartened or self-conscious about your smile.

By choosing to have your teeth whitened at Refresh Dental Spa, you can make the most of a straight smile and smile confidently.

Even if you have other cosmetic problems with your smile, a take-home or in-practice whitening procedure will improve the look of your teeth and make you feel happy to show them off.

Teeth whitening is great for an almost-instant effect and to enhance your overall appearance. You may also find teeth whitening overshadows and distracts from other problems with your smile. 

Discolouration is the leading reason why patients undergo teeth whitening. Factors that lead to dull and discoloured teeth include:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Red Wine
  • Food Colouring
  • Ageing
  • Medications
  • Smoking

At Refresh Dental Spa we use the most effective and safe methods of teeth whitening, to create a rejuvenated radiant smile. These include:

  • Take-Home Tooth Whitening
  • In-Practice Tooth Whitening

For both treatments, custom-made whitening trays are moulded from high-quality acrylic and shaped to fit the contours of your teeth and gums precisely, preventing any gum irritation. Take-home teeth whitening treatment can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades and last between one to two years, depending on your lifestyle.

In-Practice Zoom Teeth Whitening Brisbane

At Refresh Dental Spa, we offer one of the best tooth whitening treatments on the market – Zoom WhiteSpeed.

There are many reasons why we use Zoom Whitespeed, including:

  • It is clinically proven to whiten teeth up to 8 shades
  • It’s a 90-minute treatment
  • It minimises teeth sensitivity
  • It has 100% greater light intensity for optimal results

You will be able to benefit from a high-quality, rapid treatment with astounding results in one appointment.

Although teeth whitening is a safe procedure, some people may experience mild sensitivity to hot and cold, which should only last a short time after treatment. If your sensitivity does not subside, please contact us for advice.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-home teeth whitening is a popular treatment for individuals who prefer to whiten their smile in the comfort of their own home. 

This treatment will involve the use of two custom-made whitening trays which will be created based on a mould taken from your smile. You will be able to apply your own whitening solution to each tooth groove to create an even, white smile.

If you are unsure which treatment is the best for you, please make an appointment with Refresh Dental Spa so we can evaluate your smile, lifestyle and budget.

Soft-tissue Laser (gummy smiles)

DO YOU FEEL NERVOUS ABOUT YOUR GUMS SHOWING WHEN YOU SMILE?

A gummy smile means the ratio of gum to teeth is not aesthetically ideal. You may feel self-conscious when you look in the mirror or when you smile because you think too much gum is showing, or too much gum is covering your teeth.

The gummy smile laser (or soft tissue laser) can sculpt your gums so you feel more comfortable when you smile.

Two things can cause a gummy smile:

  • Excess gum tissue (genetic)
  • Overactive muscle movement in the upper lip (which exposes more gum)

Here at Refresh Dental Spa we can help you transform your smile so you don’t think about your gums anymore.

Laser technology treatment

Lasers are one of the most significant advancements in dentistry. They offer a non-invasive treatment for a range of conditions such as:

  • Gummy smiles
  • Sterilisation and treatment of periodontal pockets and periodontitis (gum disease)
  • Healing of ulcers
  • Pathology

The procedure is efficient at reducing the amount of visible gum by physically removing and reshaping areas of gum that cover the teeth. This makes it ideal for gums that are more apparent due to genetics.

For your comfort, we use a local anaesthetic so you can be completely relaxed throughout treatment. Many patients prefer laser technology as there is no scalpels, recovery time is significantly reduced and you don’t need any sutures. You also don’t have to go through the vibrations of a dental drill, which many patients can find painful or uncomfortable.

Laser treatment for gum disease

Laser technology can also be used for the treatment of periodontitis (gum disease). 

This condition occurs when tooth decay progresses and infects the gum and soft tissue area. This can result in gingivitis (the preliminary form of gum disease) and full-blown gum disease, which cannot be cured once contracted.

You can manage the condition with the use of our soft tissue laser which, upon application, eradicates bacteria.

Muscle relaxants for gummy smiles

If your upper lip recedes and exposes your gum when you smile, you may benefit from a muscle relaxant instead of a soft laser treatment.

This procedure will reduce the action of the muscle, while still allowing you to smile.

DENTOFACIAL AESTHETICS USING MUSCLE RELAXANTS

At Refresh Beauty we specialise in Dentofacial Aesthetics, which transforms the area of your appearance that extends beyond your smile. For a gummy smile, you may consider a muscle relaxant treatment to help stop your upper lip receding and exposing your gum when you smile.

Quick Straight Teeth

DO YOU HAVE MINOR OR MODERATE CROWDING OR SPACING ISSUES WITH YOUR TEETH?

At Refresh Dental Spa, we will create a beautiful smile using our “Quick Straight Teeth” system.

What is the Quick Straight Teeth System?

The Quick Straight Teeth system is an affordable treatment for achieving straight teeth where clear braces are fitted to straighten your teeth quickly and comfortably.

The removable appliances and clear fixed braces are made of transparent materials, are nearly invisible in the mouth, and can achieve straight teeth fast without ugly, bulky braces. Most people won’t be able to tell you are wearing Quick Straight Teeth.

The invisible braces work by concentrating on the front 6 to 8 teeth. Quick Straight Teeth can correct mild to moderate problems quickly, making it more affordable than similar options.

The clear braces or their removable aligners are worn for a period of 4-24 weeks. The aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning.

Follow Up Treatments

After your initial appointment and fitting, we will schedule 4-weekly follow-up appointments to check your teeth are moving as desired.

Pricing

When compared to other clear aligner treatments, the Quick Straight Teeth system is moderately priced and a perfect choice for anyone looking for minor orthodontic treatment.

For more information or to book an appointment, please call the friendly team at Refresh Dental Spa on (07) 3221 2292.

Cosmetic solutions may just be changing the surface or appearance of your teeth and gums, but they can have a significant impact on how you feel about your smile and how comfortable you are to smile. 

Our cosmetic solutions are useful for

  • Discolouration (dark, brownish stains)
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Worn teeth (such as stubby teeth caused by grinding/bruxism)
  • Worn enamel (often caused by acidic or sugary foods or age)
  • Mild crookedness
  • A gummy smile

If you are concerned about any of these conditions, cosmetic treatment may be an excellent option to give you back your confident smile.

Complete the Picture

When considering cosmetic dental treatment, you should also consider Dentofacial Aesthetics, which help transform your face around your smile. At Refresh Beauty, we can help you get the look you desire with a range of treatments.
