Highly-rated dentist in Burwood
Cosmetic dentistry helps people improve their smiles, getting rid of imperfections such as uneven or discoloured teeth that can mar the appearance and create health and confidence issues.
Cosmetic dentistry has been gaining popularity over the years as a means to improve one’s appearance, as it is a quick and fairly painless procedure with long-lasting beneficial effects.
Different types of cosmetic dentistry
There are different ways you can improve your smile, and an initial appointment with the competent Burwood dentist will help you figure out which one will best suit you.
Teeth whitening treatment is the ideal option for people whose teeth have yellowed or become stained due to age or lifestyle choices, such as smoking or consuming red wine and coffee.
At My Local Dentists, our experienced dental professionals offer our patients the choice of in-chair teeth whitening services or take-home kits if they so prefer.
If you want in-chair tooth bleaching services, we offer Zoom whitening, completing the treatment in about an hour. Home kits can take longer to achieve tooth whitening but can be done at your convenience in the comfort of your own home.
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are fixed onto healthy teeth to improve their outward appearance. These veneers can be coloured to match your existing tooth colour or to change the colour if you desire.
This is a semi-permanent, non-reversible solution to correcting your smile, giving you an even smile with no blemishes.
This is the application of tooth-coloured composite resin upon dental enamel to improve the appearance of your teeth. The resin can be used to improve the colour and shape of your teeth and to hide imperfections like hairline cracks.
Dental bonding is a short-term solution for cosmetic dentistry and does not require modifications to natural teeth, making it a reversible procedure.
Tooth and gum contouring
This dental treatment involves the reshaping of gums and teeth to make them more aesthetically pleasing.
People who have excessive gum tissue or teeth that are too small, too large or simply ones that they’re not happy with can opt for changing the shape so they look better.
Advantages of cosmetic dental services
Cosmetic dentistry enhances your smile, allowing you to speak and laugh with confidence.Studies have shown that an attractive smile goes a long way in creating a positive impression in personal and professional interactions.
You could benefit from cosmetic dental procedures if you have any of the following:
- A gummy smile
- Teeth with fine cracks
- Yellow or stained teeth
- Teeth with chips or cracks
Invisalign clear trays for the perfect smile
Invisalign is a comparatively new method of aligning teeth, so they are straight and even.
It consists of indiscernible, removable clear trays that are custom created to fit onto your teeth and push them into their correct position.
If you are considering Invisalign, our dental clinic in Burwood is a great option to achieve the perfect smile! Our friendly team will discuss the process with you in the initial appointment, making sure you fully understand the treatment and its cost before moving ahead.
They will then create a 3D scan or a physical impression of your teeth. A treatment plan is then created, and trays of food-grade polymer are custom created to fit onto your dental arch and move misaligned teeth into their correct position.
Each set of trays is replaced after a couple of weeks, and you will be required to visit our dental clinic regularly until your teeth have reached the desired place.
Invisalign is the perfect alternative to traditional metal braces for people who don’t have a complex dental problem, whose jaw is fully grown, and who want to fix their smile discreetly.
Why opt for cosmetic dentistry?
Misshapen, chipped, and stained teeth can cause embarrassment and lower confidence that can have a domino effect on other aspects of your life.
They can also cause dental health problems such as caries and gum disease, which can then affect your general health.
Having an even, attractive smile can benefit personal and professional relationships and give you the confidence to be your true self without being conscious of bad teeth.

FAQ’s – Frequently Asked Questions
Where is your dental practice located?
We have five dental clinics located around Sydney, serving people in the following localities and the surrounding suburbs:
- West Ryde
What is the best form of dental care?
When done properly, oral care takes no more than 15 minutes a day. Speak to the friendly staff at our dental clinic about the best way to brush your teeth and use the technique twice a day for 2 minutes each time.
Flossing daily removes any debris from along the gum line and between the teeth, and swishing with mouthwash can remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that replace missing or damaged teeth. They consist of three parts: the post, an implant made of titanium or zirconium that fuses with the jawbone; the porcelain crown that is the actual prosthetic tooth; and the abutment that is made of the same material as the post and connects it to the crown.
Are you an accredited dental practice?
My Local Dentists in Burwood are accredited by the Australian Dental Association. All our dentists are graduates of Australian universities and regularly undertake courses and training to stay current with advances in the dental profession.
What is preventive dentistry?
Preventive dentistry is the maintenance of dental health. It usually involves bi-annual visits to your dentist for teeth cleaning and a general check-up of your teeth. During these visits, your doctor will examine your mouth for any problems that may have developed since the previous visit and ensure no other issues could come up.
Why are dental implants important?
Dental implants are for people who may be missing one or more teeth due to disease or trauma. They fill in the gap between missing teeth that helps maintain jawbone health. Filling empty space between natural teeth prevents other teeth from moving into the empty space, which can affect the alignment of the entire dental arch and create bigger problems.
Do you offer oral surgery?
Yes, our dentists can perform the following procedures, among others:
- Tooth extraction
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Gum reshaping
- Dental implants
What is emergency dentistry?
Emergency dentistry is the need for urgent dental care. It could be required in the following instances:
- being in an accident
- receiving blunt force in the face
- extreme tooth pain
- displaced dental filling
- broken dentures
Do you offer emergency dental services?
Yes, we do! All five of My Local Dentists’ clinics are staffed with skilled, responsive dentists who can treat all sorts of dental emergencies, and we offer same-day appointments for emergency cases.
Please call on (02) 9809 7000 to speak to our caring, knowledgeable staff about your emergency. They will be happy to guide you through it, offering advice for pain relief and asking questions that can help them know the extent of your dental needs so we are prepared for your appointment and can offer the right treatment as soon as you come in.
Which is the most effective teeth whitening treatment?
The most effective way to whiten your teeth is with an in-chair treatment. It works fast, and the results last for a long time. Home kits work well but take a longer time to be effective, and the results may not be as long-lasting as in-chair treatments.
Other methods of teeth whitening, such as whitening strips, gels, and toothpaste, are not very effective, and their results are short-lived.
