After careful evaluation of our local community situation, Leanne and Rachael have made the tough decision to close their dental practice until further notice. In doing so, the L&R Dental team are taking steps to be proactive in reducing the impact of COVID-19 on our valued patients and Toowoomba community. Any non-urgent enquiries can be submitted through the contact form on our website.

Cosmetic Dentistry

When you trust L&R Dental with your smile, you can count on our dentists to go over all treatment options with you, making it possible to have the smile you have always dreamed of. Our Toowoomba dentists strive for natural-looking results that are both comfortable and long-lasting. It pays to choose someone experienced in the design and delivery of beautiful cosmetic dentistry.

Your smile is a valuable investment in your confidence and appearance. One of the many benefits of choosing a private dental practice is that our dentists can spend time with you, discuss your concerns and develop a plan that will provide optimum results that make you happy and exceed your expectations.

Simple options such as teeth whitening and bonding require a single appointment. Ceramic veneers will take multiple visits and provide more dramatic results.

Let's talk about your ideal smile and our skilled clinical team will present all of your options for stunning results. 

For specific answers, we recommend calling our dental clinic to arrange a consultation with Dr Leanne Welsh, Dr Rachael Milford or Dr Lewis Ferguson to discuss what you would like to change about the appearance of your teeth. You will be surprised at how modern cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile and your life.

For most healthy patients, teeth whitening is completely safe and comfortable. One of the many benefits of teeth whitening in our Toowoomba dental clinic is that you will work closely with an experienced dentist who will help you decide which teeth whitening option is right for you. Zoom! Whitening comes in both hydrogen and carbamide peroxide as well as different strengths.

In some cases, gum recession can expose the roots of the teeth, leading to additional sensitivity. If you do experience sensitivity, contact us to discuss your options. If you have sensitive teeth after beginning whitening, take a day or two off between your at-home treatments. Be sure to only use the recommended amount of gel to minimise how much seeps onto the gums.

We also offer fluoride treatments and desensitisers to improve comfort during whitening.

In-Chair Zoom! Whitening

If you have a special event just around the corner, we can give you a whiter smile in about an hour.

Take-Home Custom Trays

We will take impressions of your teeth to make trays that fit well and keep whitening gel where it belongs – on your teeth!

You can save your trays and touch up your smile whenever it needs a boost.
