Teeth Whitening

As we age, it’s natural for our teeth to darken. This aging process can accelerate for North Sydney residents who smoke, consume excessive coffee, or use medications that include chlorhexidine.

No matter the cause, teeth whitening products are available to restore your dazzling smile. These whitening treatments work by penetrating deep into the teeth to dissolve discolored molecules into smaller, invisible particles. Importantly, contemporary whitening solutions are designed to brighten your teeth without causing damage.


In North Sydney, we specialise in restoring chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth by applying “high-quality” tooth-colored composite resin to cover any imperfections. Teeth bonding is also an effective solution for closing large, noticeable gaps between your teeth.

One of the greatest advantages of teeth bonding is its simplicity and affordability, often requiring just a single visit to achieve results. However, if your front teeth have extensive cracks and chips, while teeth bonding can technically address these issues, it might not be time-efficient. In such cases, your dentist might recommend veneers instead.

Veneers are slender casings that only cover the front surface of your teeth. Properly selected, veneers can transform your smile into a stunning Hollywood Smile at a surprisingly affordable price. For those seeking a more understated appearance, we can customize veneers to be “naturally beautiful” by shaping them naturally and opting for a subtler shade of white. This approach is incredibly popular, as it ensures your smile looks effortlessly harmonious with your overall facial aesthetics.


For those in North Sydney dealing with mild to moderate teeth misalignment, there’s no need to settle for traditional, noticeable braces. Invisalign is your ideal solution.

Invisalign features transparent trays that snugly fit over your teeth. These trays are uniquely engineered to exert gentle pressure on one or several teeth, gradually straightening them over time.

What sets Invisalign apart from classic braces is the convenience of removal for dental hygiene practices, such as flossing and brushing, preventing the formation of unsightly white marks that often remain once braces are taken off.

Our clinic holds the distinction of being a “Platinum provider” of Invisalign, underscoring our extensive experience in offering this service.

Opt for Invisalign aligners for a solution that’s not only subtle and aesthetically pleasing but also comfortable.

Dental Crowns

While veneers are designed to conceal only the front surface of your teeth, crowns encompass the entire tooth, offering protection from all angles. In North Sydney, your dentist may recommend cosmetic crowns for several reasons, including:

  • Your teeth are too fragile to support veneers.
  • You have severe misalignment issues.
    The discoloration on your teeth is so intense that thin veneers cannot cover it.
  • Your teeth have extensive fillings.
  • You have undergone a recent root canal procedure.

The process of fitting a crown begins with reshaping your teeth and taking either a scan or an impression. In many cases, we can create and place the crown on the same day within our office. If this isn’t possible, you’ll be provided with a temporary crown, and we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to fit your final crown.

Ceramic crowns are utilized not only to fortify weakened teeth but also to replace missing ones and enhance your smile’s appearance, ensuring both functionality and aesthetic appeal.

Gum Contouring

In North Sydney, it’s not uncommon for individuals to feel self-conscious about their smiles due to their gums. Whether you’re concerned about excessive gum visibility when smiling or an uneven gum line, your dentist can employ a precise laser technique to reshape your gum line. This procedure is widely regarded as painless, simple, and effective.

For those who feel their smile shows too little gum, a dentist can add new tissue to fill the gaps and create a more balanced gum line. However, if gum recession is due to periodontal disease, addressing the root cause is essential before proceeding with tissue grafting to ensure the new tissue remains securely in place.

Remember, while the health of your teeth is crucial, the aesthetics of your gums, teeth, or bite can also impact your willingness to smile. If there’s a specific aspect of your smile’s appearance making you hesitant, consulting with a cosmetic dentist in North Sydney could be the key to regaining your confidence to smile freely again.
