The most popular dental treatments for brides, grooms, mothers-in-law – and anyone at a wedding!
If your teeth are in good shape and you’d simply like a whiter, brighter smile, teeth whitening could be perfect for you. It can be either a standalone treatment, or used as part of a bigger process in conjunction with other treatments to give you the smile you want.
You can choose from either in-chair or at-home teeth whitening, depending on your budget and the timeframe you have in mind for lightening your smile.
At Wickham Terrace Dental we offer Opalescence PF at-home teeth whitening. The system whitens your teeth safely using oxygen molecules. Importantly, Opalescence PF uses custom-made whitening trays that precisely fit your mouth for a better whitening result.
If you’d prefer teeth whitening treatment from the comfort of our Brisbane dental practice, Opalescence Boost is ideal. Perfect if you’re looking for whiter teeth fast, it gives you a beautifully white smile in about 90 minutes. If you have a special event such as a wedding coming up, Opalescence Boost could help ensure your smile is whiter and brighter in time for your big day.
If you have a little more time available before your wedding day, you may wish to consider straightening your teeth with Invisalign.
Unlike traditional heavy metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, amazingly transparent aligners, which straighten your teeth by gradually applying gentle pressure. And because Invisalign really is practically invisible, you can have your teeth straightened before your big day without anyone knowing you’re having treatment.
Porcelain dental veneers
Porcelain dental veneers can help improve the look of crooked, ‘gappy’ or uneven teeth, giving you a beautiful smile you’ll love showing off.
Dental veneers can be simply described as porcelain ‘shells’, which are incredibly thin yet extremely strong. When bonded to the front of your teeth, dental veneers can restore the colour, size, and shape of your teeth, giving you a beautiful and natural looking smile.
While veneers use your existing tooth for support, dental crowns are a more substantial restoration that support themselves. They wrap around and protect your tooth, and increase its overall structural integrity.
Crowns are ideal if your teeth are heavily filled or damaged, or when more substantial change is required to get the look you’re after. And thanks to Wickham Terrace Dental’s in-house CEREC technology we can create and fit your dental crown in just one appointment.
Dental implants are a highly effective option for replacing missing teeth and giving you back a complete, healthy smile once more. Simply described as an extremely strong titanium post, dental implants are threaded into your jawbone in a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Once this foundation has integrated with your jawbone over two to six months, it’s gently uncovered and connected to a small metal post which will secure and support an artificial tooth.
Because of the way they securely bond with your natural bone, dental implants are the sturdiest replacement modern dentistry can provide for your missing tooth root. They replicate the look and function of your natural tooth, to give you a long-lasting restoration.
Tooth coloured fillings
White fillings are a healthier, safer, and much more attractive alternative to old-fashioned dark amalgam fillings. They can be ideal for making small changes to just one or two of your teeth, to correct their shape, width, length, or minor chips.
Importantly, bonding is a very conservative procedure, where we add material to the tooth instead of removing any of the tooth structure.
If you’d like to minimise the appearance of wrinkles in your wedding day photos, your dentist is the ideal person to help! Unlike some cosmetic injectables providers, our dentists have had extensive education in facial physiology, including its nerves, muscles, and vascular system.
And our cosmetic anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are the ideal complement if you’re having other cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as teeth whitening, dental veneers, or Invisalign.
