Cosmetic Dentistry

Take the first step to a more confident smile today! At Edens Landing Dental, we understand that your smile is important and our team is equipped with the latest cosmetic dental techniques and technologies to help achieve a patient’s ideal smile. As cosmetic dentistry involves the understanding of what it takes to achieve an attractive and functional smile, our team has the expertise and experience to transform this vision into a reality.

Choosing to invest in cosmetic dental work can be a big decision and we want you to know the options available to you. However, note that not all treatments are best suited for every patient. During your consultation, your dentist will be able to advise on which treatment option will be most ideal based on concerns, desired outcomes and budget to give you the smile you deserve. 

A Crown or Onlay is used to restore and protect heavily broken down, cracked and root filled teeth. The crown resembles your natural tooth in colour and shape and is cemented on the top of your existing tooth. The cap can be made up of either Ceramic, Zirconia (tooth coloured metal) or gold depending on the area and aesthetic the patient is going for. Onlays are similar to crowns, but are used when full tooth coverage is not necessary. The dentist will be able to further advise on each patient’s circumstance.

A small amount of the outer surface of the tooth is removed to ensure there is room for the crown to sit. The crown is then constructed expertly by our Australian lab technician. It is constructed in such a way that it will match the exact colour and shape of your original tooth if not better! A temporary crown might be placed in the interim while the permanent is being made. Once the lab has constructed the permanent crown, a trip to the dentist is required to have it fitted using dental cement.

Duration of treatment: A patient normally requires 2 to 3 visits to complete this treatment but varies on the complexity of the case. The dentist will be able to advise accordingly.

Bridges are used to restore missing teeth, improve function and maintain the shape of your face. The bridge is attached to the adjacent natural teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing teeth, leveraging on the existing natural teeth to hold a bonded tooth in the middle. The bridge will be of a natural finish and blend in with the other teeth seamlessly. Materials used for the bridge generally comprise Ceramic or Zirconia (tooth coloured material). This can be used as an alternative to dentures especially if a removable device is not desired.

In preparation for a bridge, the dentist will file down the 2 teeth on either side of the gap similar to how it is done for a crown and will then take a mould of the teeth to send to the lab for construction. A temporary bridge might be put in place in the interim. Once the permanent bridge is ready, the bridge is cemented around the healthy teeth on either side.

Duration of treatment: A patient normally requires 2 to 3 visits to complete this treatment but varies on the complexity of the case. The dentist will be able to advise accordingly.

Veneers are restorations bonded to the front surface of the tooth in order to treat discoloured, chopped, oddly shaped and misalignment which is present in the mouth. This is a conservative treatment which comprise of colour matching, shaping and bonding on the natural tooth to give the patient a healthy and natural smile. There are two types of veneers – porcelain and composite.

Porcelain veneers are custom-made to a particular tooth and they will look and feel natural. Composite veneers are applied one layer at a time to slowly cover the existing tooth, until the ideal result is achieved. To get a better idea on which option would be best for you, it is best to see the dentist and have him advise accordingly as every case is different and is individually tailored to the individual.

Duration of treatment: This treatment varies on the complexity of the case and the dentist will be able to advise the time frame accordingly.


We offer our patients the Opalescence whitening system which is a take home whitening kit. At your very first appointment, a mould of your teeth will be taken to make custom mouth trays. A special whitening gel is then placed into the trays and is worn for 40-60 minutes per day for up to 2 weeks. We highly recommend getting your teeth checked and cleaned beforehand to enhance the effects of the whitening.

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive treatment that does not involve surgery, but there are risks if instructions are not followed. Although teeth whitening products are sold over the counter in Australia, higher concentration products can only be prescribed by a registered dental professional. These higher concentrations normally give the best possible effect on whitening your teeth in a shorter amount of time. However, the effects of whitening treatments differ from person to person and will not always whiten to the same degree. It is important to have realistic expectations before undergoing the treatment. Teeth whitening is not permanent and depend on how the teeth are cared for afterwards along with diet. The dentist should be able to advise on each patient’s situation accordingly.

Prior to commencement of the treatment, the dentist will do a full consultation and clean of the mouth to give recommendations. A mould of the patient’s top and bottom teeth will be taken, which are then used to produce trays that will enable the patient to administer the treatment at home. Once the trays are ready, the patient will be given the Opalescence 16% bleaching solution that is to be put in the trays and worn one hour daily until they achieve the desired tooth shade.

Duration of treatment: 2-3 weeks daily

What is Botox?

Botox is a toxin made by bacterium Clostridium botulinum that medical professionals have been using for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases. As Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, the injected muscle is unable to contract allowing the muscle to relax and soften.

Botox for TMJ/TMD

At Edens Landing Dental, we offer Botox as an alternative non-surgical treatment for TMD/TMJ. As a natural muscle relaxant, Botox can ease muscle tension and relieve symptoms for several months at a time. Botox for TMD/TMJ works to reduce the temporomandibular joint’s ability to move, cushioning the jaw when doing regular activities such as eating and talking. When injected into afflicted facial muscles, Botox can also greatly reduce the severity of headaches and lockjaw. To further reduce muscle tension and grinding during sleep, it is recommended to combine Botox with an occlusal splint or night guard.

Botox for gummy smile

If you have a gummy smile because of a short upper lip or overactive muscles, Botox can help minimize the appearance of your gums when you smile. By easing the overactive muscles, Botox is a minimally invasive procedure to reducing the amount of gum shown when smiling as the relaxed muscles will not pull the upper lip as much.

How long does Botox last?

Results may vary depending on the individual, Botox can last up to 6 months at a time. We recommend applying Botox at regular points throughout the year to maintain consistent results.

What is the recovery for Botox?

The recovery time for Botox is minimal and you should be able to resume regular activities immediately after the procedure. You should start to see results a few days after the injections. If you experience any redness, swelling or bruising post-treatment in the treatment area after your injections, it is completely normal and it should resolve within a week or so.

Does Botox hurt?

The discomfort associated with Botox is typically minimal, with majority of patients describing it as a slight pinch or sting at the site of the injection. However, pain tolerance varies on the individual and some may find the procedure more uncomfortable than others.
