Having a healthy smile is a reflection of your overall health. When teeth are bright and white, we feel better and we smile more. Studies have shown that smiling is a physical act that excites the brain to produce more “feel good” chemicals like dopamine. Smiling, especially when you have bright white teeth, has also been shown to give you that edge in professional and social success.
If you want to keep your brilliant smile, you know there are many pitfalls that can dull your radiant smile.
Here are four tips for preserving your awesome smile.
There are many choices in orthodontic treatment. Some people get the traditional brackets and metal wires braces. Others go for a clear, wire-free look (such as Invisalign) because they are almost invisible. Depending on the severity of misalignment, it can take a long time to move teeth into a healthy position.
Damon Braces use a technology similar to traditional braces but with a few extra benefits. We are able to takes one’s overall appearance into account. Dr Eric Wang of who has been trained to perform orthodontic treatment with Damon Braces can predict how teeth will move as a person ages and create an alignment that is healthy for a lifetime. Also, Damon braces may move teeth faster, allowing our patients to quickly improve their smile and move on with their lives.
When teeth are crooked or overlapping, you may think that the only remedy is with some form of orthodontic treatment. In some cases, this may be true. In other cases, porcelain veneers may be used to correct the appearance of crooked teeth. Here are some things that your Perth dentists will consider:
Cosmetic dental treatment with veneers can do quite a bit for your smile.
When working with veneers, we take into account the overall shape and size of your teeth. We want each tooth to have a nice overall size, width, and shape at the end of the cosmetic process, so in order to fix an overlap or misalignment, it may be necessary to cover multiple teeth.
Many of your Perth neighbours elect to have some form of cosmetic dental work to correct a crooked smile. With today’s advanced technology, there are multiple options available. At the Smile Design Studio, we offer the popular orthodontic procedure, Invisalign.
Invisalign is a proven cosmetic dental procedure that corrects the orientation of your teeth through multiple sets of almost invisible plastic aligners. Each aligner is slightly tighter than the last and gradually moves your teeth into the desired alignment.
Veneers are a simple and effective treatment to enhance your smile – to close up gaps, brighten your smile or even to fix a chipped tooth. There are two types of veneers that we use in our practice – porcelain and composite resin.
Composite veneers be fitted in one visit, while porcelain veneers will be made in a laboratory and may take a couple of weeks to be ready for fitting.
Porcelain is made from an organic natural glass material, whereas composites are made from a type of plastic artificial material.
If you suffer from persistent headaches, neck aches, you could be at risk for TMJ Syndrome. Symptoms of people who suffer from TMJ syndrome can often present with the following symptoms:
1. Persistent headaches, often in temporal areas, but also commonly at the base of the skull. Sufferers of TMJ often wake up with the headaches, and these can often be worse on one side.
2. Persistent neck pain or stiffness, unable to turn head freely. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and often are constant to a daily occurrence.
Despite its relatively high cost, the use of all-on-four implants has gained favorable popularity in Australia. The procedure is used for improving the efficiency of prosthetic dentistry, and is considered one of the best permanent procedures for that purpose.
The implants are placed on key strategic points of the maxilla and/or mandible as fixed pillars designed to support the addition of multiple other dental implants. If you have several missing or damaged teeth, this is the recommended procedure that most Australian dentists would suggest.

Advancement in dentistry has provided solutions for such cases – a smile makeover. Everyone is the same but are different altogether. Confusing? All humans are the same, everyone has the same anatomy or body parts. A set of eyes, pairs of arms, hands and legs, hair, head, mouth and set of teeth. But everyone knows that each individual is unique; different eye color, fingerprints are different and different set of teeth. Some are born to have a good set of teeth and some are not so lucky.
