Ambience Dental, a dental clinic in Fairy Meadow, NSW, Australia, wants to emphasise that cosmetic dentistry services are gaining in popularity in Wollongong and surrounding areas. It has been noted that the worldwide cosmetic dentistry market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6 percent for the period of 2020 to 2025. It is predicted to grow from US$21.9 billion in 2020 to US$30.1 billion by 2025. This significant growth for 2020 to 2025 is due to growing awareness of people about aesthetics, the rise in dental tourism in emerging markets, and the rising prevalence of oral health disorders.
Rebekah Brown, treatment co-ordinator at Ambience Dental, says, “Cosmetic dentistry involves a huge variety of treatments which work together to change the colour, position, shape and alignment of your teeth. So, whether you have discoloured, misaligned or crooked teeth, there is a treatment to suit. What's more, while cosmetic treatments are focused on the aesthetics, how you’ll look afterwards, they often also improve the functionality of your teeth. More and more people are realising the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. We invite you to contact us and find out what this is all about.”
The treatments provided by the best cosmetic dentist in Wollongong can be categorised into dental veneers, crowns and bridges, and teeth whitening. First of all, dental veneers are a kind of cosmetic dentistry treatment that can significantly enhance the aesthetics of the patient’s teeth, thus, greatly transforming that person’s smile. Dental veneers are made up of finely sculpted shells that have been carefully moulded to fit over teeth perfectly and then bonded to the teeth’s surface to ensure that they remain in place. These can be used to hide imperfections of the teeth, including the colour and shape of the teeth. Dental veneers are often used for teeth that have been stained, chipped or misaligned.
Dental crowns are fabricated from porcelain or ceramic to ensure that their colour and texture will match the natural texture and colour of the patient’s teeth. It is also possible for the crowns to be manufactured from metal alloys or gold to provide sufficient strength, especially when replacing back teeth. For these metal crowns, porcelain is usually bonded to the exterior to make them look like natural teeth.
Dental bridges are prosthetic dental appliances for replacing missing teeth by bridging the gap between two dental crowns. They are typical fabricated with porcelain that is fused to metal to provide strength while having a natural-looking exterior. Dental bridges can be a fixed bridge, bonded bridge, or cantilever bridge. Crowns and bridges are commonly used for treating damaged or missing teeth.
And finally, as a cosmetic dentistry treatment, they can also provide teeth whitening, which can either be in chair or take home. This is often recommended for people whose teeth have been discoloured or stained because of coffee, tea, or wine. The dentists at Ambience Dental may offer a custom-made home whitening kit that the patient can bring home. They will take an impression of the patient’s teeth and then create a custom moulded tray. A special solution will then be made to suit the level of whitening that a particular patient needs. The patient takes home the kit and is instructed on how to use it. In chair whitening may also be provided where the dentist can apply patented technologies for whitening teeth.
Ambience Dental also offers digital smile design, which is a dental treatment planning tool that allows the patients to select how their smile will look and ensure that they will be very satisfied with the results even before the treatment has been completed. This technology has three steps. First, a smile design analysis is performed where high-resolution photos are taken of the patient’s smile, including videos that show what the patient looks like when talking. Second, a blueprint of the new smile is made and the patient takes a look at it and this process will continue until the patient is satisfied and chooses a specific smile. And finally, the smile treatment will be provided to achieve the chosen blueprint smile.
