The Port Dental Care specialises in cosmetic dentistry treatments to help patients improve the appearance and function of their teeth and gums. Our Port Adelaide dentists are experienced in many cosmetic dental procedures and can help you understand the treatment options that will work best for your goals and overall health.
What is the difference between cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry?
Both general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry focus on a patient’s oral health. However, cosmetic dentistry also takes into account aesthetics, which is not usually a priority in general dentistry. Cosmetic dental treatments such as crowns, bridges and veneers strengthen tooth structures and help to support the gums while also enhancing their appearance.
The cosmetic dental professionals at Port Adelaide consider all aspects of a patient’s oral health when discussing treatments. To help you make an informed decision, we give you an in-depth explanation as to what the procedures involve, and can recommend supplementary or alternative treatments that match your needs.
Who is cosmetic dentistry for?
The wide variety of cosmetic dental procedures available means there are treatments for many different dental needs. Whether you have chipped, crooked or missing teeth, an over-bite, under-bite or cross-bite, or you want to remove teeth stains; our Port Adelaide dentists can recommend suitable treatments that will deliver the results that you require.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about looks – most procedures will also improve the function of your teeth as well as alleviating pain and discomfort. Our cosmetic dentists in Port Adelaide treat patients of all ages.
Types of cosmetic dentistry
We offer a range of cosmetic dental procedures at our clinic in Port Adelaide, including:
• Crowns and bridges
• Dental implants
• Porcelain veneers
• Teeth whitening
• White fillings.
All treatments are performed using the latest equipment by skilled dentists with years of experience in the field. Patient comfort is a top priority and our dentists are committed to helping you achieve the results you desire.
If you have missing, chipped or damaged teeth, dental implants offer a more permanent alternative to removable dentures and are designed to look and feel just like natural teeth. Dental implants are made of durable titanium and are bonded to the jaw bone over a period of three to six months. After this time, veneers, crowns and bridges can be prepared.
Teeth may lose their whiteness for a variety of reasons, and a professional teeth whitening treatment is an affordable and simple way to restore natural whiteness for long-lasting results. Our cosmetic dentists take a mould of your teeth, which can be used with a specialised take-home whitening kit and normally produces results in just one to two weeks.

What are the benefits of composite or white fillings?
White fillings are made from a composite resin that we match to your own tooth colour for a more natural looking restoration. By using the most up to date bonding process we can complete this procedure in one visit. Composite fillings can be used to restore decayed teeth, replace old fillings, for building up worn teeth or even to change the shape and redesign a tooth.
What are ceramic inlays and onlays?
In some cases composite fillings are just not strong enough to maintain the structural integrity of a tooth and as an alternative your dentist may suggest a ceramic inlay or onlay. Similar to a crown, these restorations are bonded to your tooth and can actually strengthen your tooth whilst looking very natural. These restorations are more conservative than a crown because they preserve more of tooth structure. Due to the strength of the ceramic material and there being less of an impact on the tooth, you may find that this type of restoration will last many years longer than a composite filling.
