Lifestyle, health and unforeseen accidents can affect the appearance of teeth and gums. In many cases, function is also compromised. That’s why many patients with cracked, chipped, missing or discoloured teeth and/or receding gums find cosmetic dentistry to be an effective solution.
Read below to learn more about the specific cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer at Pascoe Value Dental Group:
Veneers are a conservative approach to changing the colour and/or shape of chipped, fractured, misaligned, worn down or discoloured teeth, while simultaneously providing extra protection. Veneer ‘shells’ are made from tooth-coloured translucent composite resin and fit closely over an individual tooth without irritating gum tissue. They closely match the natural colour and lustre of existing teeth and are stain resistant, so nobody will know you have a veneer unless you tell them about your treatment.
A white filling, also referred to a composite filling, is a mixture of glass and hard plastic tooth-coloured material used to restore decayed, chipped, broken or worn down teeth.
White fillings offer patients a number of benefits compared to mercury (amalgam) fillings used in earlier times. They are closely matched to the natural colour of existing teeth. They provide more support, as less tooth structure is removed in preparation and the filling is chemically bonded to the tooth’s structure.
Teeth whitening is a very common solution for patient’s wishing to restore the natural lustre and appearance of stained, yellowed or discoloured teeth. At Pascoe Vale Dental Group, patients can choose from two effective teeth whitening methods.
Professional In-Chair Whitening
This is the fastest and most effective way of whitening teeth during a dental consultation. It involves a dental practitioner applying a highly concentrated gel onto the exterior of teeth and using a laser to maximise and accelerate the whitening process.

Take-Home Whitening Kits
Take-home whitening kits are also available and can be administered by patients in the comfort of their own home. One of our dental practitioners will cast a mould of your teeth during a consultation. This custom-fitted tray can be used to hold a suitable whitening gel at home.
