A lot goes into making a good smile. Depending on who you ask, it takes roughly a dozen facial muscles to form a smile, and that doesn’t include the other elements of a healthy mouth, such as teeth, gums, and lips.
At Bond Street, we like to think our never-ending array of killer jokes keeps the ‘smiley dozen’ facial muscles of our patients working hard, and we’re pretty handy at helping with the rest of the smile’s health as well.
We aim to provide individualised solutions to help your smile reach its full potential in terms of aesthetics, comfort, function and long term dental health.
As a purpose-built state-of-the-art facility for general and aesthetic dentistry, dental implants, sleep dentistry and smile enhancements, all by highly experienced aesthetic dentists, we feel we can deal with any mouthful of problems. We even share our Bond Street premises with one of Australia’s premium dental laboratories, the Omega Ceramics Dental Laboratory, meaning we can include them throughout the smile makeover process, from treatment planning through to ensuring your vision becomes reality.
A smile design is a work of art and usually requires a combination of methods. A patient’s eyes, lip line colouring, gum tissue contouring and face, are all considered when a new smile is designed individually. Our goal is to redesign your smile so that it fits you, is beautiful, strong and natural looking.
A great smile may be closer than you think.
Here are some of the most common mouth issues and how Bond Street’s clinicians deal with them.
Stained or dull teeth can be dramatically improved by in-office teeth whitening, laser bleaching, home whitening, porcelain veneers, all-ceramic crowns or bonding. We’re vastly experienced and can offer predictable and longer-lasting results.
Misshapen, chipped, or worn teeth can be improved by porcelain veneers, all-ceramic crowns, bonding, or simple aesthetic re-contouring.
Gaps can be closed up with porcelain veneers, all-ceramic crowns, bonding, or orthodontics.
Old or amalgam fillings can be replaced with tooth-coloured fillings (resins and porcelain) for a natural appearance.
Displeasing crowns with grey margins or crowns that have become discoloured can be replaced with all-ceramic crowns.
CROOKED OR CROWDED TEETH
Cooked and crowded teeth may be improved with porcelain veneers, all-ceramic crowns, bonding, and orthodontics.
SINGLE MISSING OR DAMAGED TEETH
When you have a single missing tooth, or a tooth that is irreparably compromised, one of the best permanent replacement solutions is a dental implant, in conjunction with a porcelain crown. Alternatively, a fixed bridge may also be considered. Damaged teeth can be a result of injury or poor sugary diets.
MULTIPLE MISSING OR DAMAGED TEETH
If you are missing multiple teeth or wearing dentures, dental implants together with fixed bridges offer a permanent solution for replacing missing or badly diseased teeth.
FULL SET OF TEETH MISSING
If you wear dentures or you’re about to lose most or all of your teeth and would like to avoid wearing a plate, dental implants together with the All-on-4 ® rehabilitation concept offers a brilliant alternative to dentures.
A ‘gummy smile’, or excessive or uneven gums, can often be helped with a gum lift procedure. It can also be combined with porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers for a total smile makeover.
Excessive tooth wear and teeth grinding are often linked to jaw joint problems and headaches. It may be helped with occlusion splints or, in severe cases, treatment may require full oral rehabilitation.
Loose dentures can be stabilised with dental implants. There are a number of alternatives to suit different needs and budget.
Our very own All-on-4® rehabilitation concept is a cost effective, advanced technique whereby a whole arch of teeth is supported by only 4 implants. This landmark treatment is common in our clinic today for full arch rehabilitation for people who have lost their teeth, or are about to lose them, and is suitable for almost all lower and upper cases.
Bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease (gingivitis), which is not to be ignored. It can progress into a more severe form, periodontitis.
The hygienists at our Bond Street Clinic can provide appropriate treatment for bleeding gums, patient education and personalised dental maintenance and preventive oral hygiene programs.
The Bond Street Dental Clinic offers many treatments to enhance the smile of patients; this includes treatments for problems that were described earlier such as chipped teeth and space closures. Patients can also find treatments for missing teeth at our clinic, which includes normal dental implants, but also revolutionary new treatments such as the All-On-4 dental implants. To learn more about this treatment, patients can refer to our information pages, but also to the Dr Larry Benge podcasts, which provide patients with loads of information about current dental health topics.
In addition to the information available on our website, patients can also acquire the information they need during one of our free information evenings. The free information evenings are organised by the Bond Street Dental Clinic and held by our own Dr Larry Benge, who provides patients with a seminar dedicated to All-On-4. During the seminar, patients can learn vital information such as the cost of the procedure, how it is executed, and the medical criteria patients need to meet to benefit from this procedure. After the presentation, patients can also ask questions, which could prove useful if they have been ineligible for the procedure in the past. If you would like to learn more about this procedure and attend one of our free information evenings, please reserve your seats on our dedicated free information evening page.
