Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is intended to improve your smile and the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. At L&R Dental, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services including teeth whitening, crowns, and bridges. While cosmetic dentistry is primarily designed to target the way your teeth look, some types of cosmetic dentistry can also contribute to overall oral health and hygiene.

People undergo cosmetic dentistry for many reasons. A healthy smile can impact your confidence and empower you to be your best self every day.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services For Natural Results

A broken-down smile may not reflect who you are on the inside. Replacing missing teeth and improving the appearance of the ones you have can help you maintain a youthful and healthy appearance that makes a great impression socially and professionally. Restorations like ceramic crowns and veneers can erase years of damage or neglect – all with natural-looking results.

Your smile is the most important accessory you will ever have because you wear it every day.


Tooth-Coloured Dentistry

Replacing dentistry that contains metal components can brighten your smile. Ceramic crowns, bonded fillings, and ceramic veneers restore both the function and appearance of natural teeth, while dental implants solve the problem of missing teeth with the most lifelike and reliable results. Our Toowomba dentists are great listeners and truly interested in helping you achieve your ideal smile. We invite you to get in touch and tell us what you love about your smile and what you would prefer to change. 


A New Smile with Ceramic Veneers

composite dental veneerCeramic veneers are thin, translucent restorations that fit over the front of natural teeth to improve shape, length and discolouration.

Veneers also eliminate gaps between teeth and give the appearance of improved alignment without the need for orthodontics. Typically, ceramic veneers are placed on multiple teeth to create a perfect-looking smile.

We also offer composite bonded veneers for repairing a single tooth or covering deep stains. We can discuss which option will give you optimum results.

We begin by discussing your ideal smile and taking moulds of your teeth. This will help us design the proper shape and length of your veneers. Determining the shade and the final look of veneers is exciting. We even offer a ‘try-in’ with temporaries so that you can see a preview of your brand new look.


Full Smile Makeovers

Neglect, teeth grinding and accidents cause damage to the smile. We offer complete smile makeovers to restore both function and aesthetics of teeth. By using a combination of treatments, you can enjoy comfortable chewing and a smile suited for the silver screen.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you'd like to know more about our cosmetic dentistry treatments, read our more frequently asked questions below or contact us to ask any questions of your own.

Does cosmetic dentistry hurt?

No, cosmetic dentistry doesn't hurt. Any surgeries that could be painful, such as dental implant surgery, are only carried out with suitable pain relief such as a local anaesthetic. You may feel a small amount of sensitivity after some cosmetic dentistry procedures, but this shouldn't last long or prevent you from eating and drinking as you normally would.

Is cosmetic dentistry safe?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry is completely safe when it's carried out by a qualified and registered dentist. We only carry out cosmetic procedures that have been tested and approved by relevant dental authorities, and we can also offer all of our patients advice on proper oral care and hygiene to ensure long-lasting results. 

Is cosmetic dentistry necessary?

Cosmetic dentistry is elective, which means that you choose to have cosmetic dentistry to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Some cosmetic dentistry procedures may be recommended to you by your regular dentist if they can improve the structure and strength of your teeth or bite; for example, dental implants can help to protect surrounding teeth by reducing pressure on them when you eat.
