TEETH STRAIGHTENING WITH INVISALIGN
Invisalign is an alternative orthodontic treatment to traditional braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. Unlike braces, the removable nature of the aligners means you can take them out for special occasions, continue to eat your favourite foods and brush & floss to maintain good oral hygiene. There are no metal brackets to attach, and no wires to tighten.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN?
Straight Teeth
Less uneven wear on teeth
Near invisible braces
Removable
Easy to clean and eat teeth while using treatment

Fixed Braces
Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are worn 24/7. Only your orthodontist dentist can remove fixed braces.

Several types of fixed braces are available.

Traditional braces (the most commonly needed orthodontic appliance)
Conventional braces (the type that most people think of) require elastic or metal ties to hold the archwire in place.
Self-ligating braces (the type our Orthodontists recommend most often) do not require elastic or metal ties. Self-ligating braces create proper tooth alignment faster, more comfortably, and with fewer adjustments (and office visits) than conventional braces.
Ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional braces because they tend to blend with the wearer’s natural tooth color. They are similar to conventional braces, but because they are made from porcelain, they are more expensive and susceptible to damage.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic Dentistry

We believe that cosmetic dentistry not only improves smiles but improves lives as well.

At Sunshine Dental Group, we take pride in our ability to help our patients attain their ideal smiles, improving their self-esteem and the impressions they make on others. We can make some amazing transformations through various cosmetic dentistry treatments. Our practise offers a range of cosmetic dentistry services include teeth whitening, veneers, implants and more.

TEETH WHITENING
Whitening your teeth will make your teeth appear brighter and more youthful. It involves a simple, painless process which begins with taking an impression of your mouth, allowing us to construct custom-fitted trays which hold a peroxide-based whitening gel onto the tooth surface. Overtime this tray and whitening gel will whiten the teeth giving you a gleaming smile.

PORCELAIN VENEERS
Veneers are a thin laminate of porcelain bonded onto the front surface of teeth. Veneers have long been a popular option in the pursuit of. Discoloured, fractured, crooked, un-slightly or uneven teeth can be improved through the use of veneers.

DENTAL IMPLANTS
We specialise in various cosmetic dental surgery options in Melbourne including dental implants. Dental implants are threaded titanium rods that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth.

MINI IMPLANTS
Mini dental implants are similar to regular dental implants, however as the name suggests, they are smaller and designed for narrower teeth and gaps in the mouth. Smaller teeth, incisors, and oral devices that require additional stabilisation (such as mandibular dentures) are good candidates for mini dental implants.. Like traditional dental implants, mini dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with the purpose of maintaining good oral health.

INVISALIGN
Invisalign clear teeth aligners can effectively straighten your teeth in a more discreet way than traditional braces. Custom-designed for your teeth, these removable aligners offer a more comfortable solution to achieve a beautiful smile.

Emergency Dental
Emergency Dental

Don’t neglect a dental injury! Even toothaches require treatment as soon as possible to inspect the affected tooth/teeth and prevent further damage.

TOOTHACHES
Tooth pain has a wide variety of causes, from bruxism (teeth grinding) to cavities, gum disease, an exposed root, or even an ear or sinus infection. That’s why it’s important to consult both your doctor and your dentist if you’re having significant, consistent tooth pain.

In the meantime, most over-the-counter pain medication can reduce pain and inflammation. A cold compress on the outside of your cheek may also help numb pain around the jaws.

KNOCKED OUT TOOTH
If you have the tooth, hold it by the crown and gently rinse any dirt away from the root.
As soon as possible after the tooth has fallen out, we recommend you put the tooth in a small cup of milk, or if possible, saline – this will encourage cell growth and prevent the tooth from drying out. Call emergency dentists straight away – the sooner you can reinsert the tooth, the better chance you have at saving it.

LOST CROWN
If you’ve lost a crown and still have it, rinse the inside and contact your dentist as soon as possible. If it is still suitable, your dentist can reattach the crown for you, otherwise they will advise you of an alternative treatment. Do not try to re-attach it yourself.

LOST FILLING
If you have lost a filling, it is best to contact your dentist straight away, regardless of whether it is hurting or not. Prompt treatment of a lost filling will can prevent the need to have more complex and costly treatment down the track.

Dental Implant
Dental Implant

WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?
A dental implant is a strong and small titanium screw which is placed into prepared sites in the jawbone, replacing your missing tooth root. After a short healing period, the bone grows onto the surface of the implant ( a process known as osseo-integration) so it can anchor a replacement tooth(crown) securely to the implant.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
Dental implants prevent the need to sacrifice healthy tooth structure from adjacent teeth as is required for a traditional bridge. There is no need to grind down adjacent healthy teeth.
Dental implants allow you to eat and speak with comfort and confidence. Not having to cover up holes in your smile with your hand or ensuring dentures don’t slip or loosen when laughing. Smiling and laughing are for the good times and should be enjoyed with confidence.
Time-tested results: for over 40 years, dental implants have been used successfully in millions of people worldwide as a treatment option for missing teeth. Success rates are extremely high and thirty year studies report that with the right oral and general health, 95% success rates are achievable.
