Here are some cosmetic dental services you can expect to find at Dr Matthew Kinsella General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry.

Tooth-Coloured Restorations in West Perth

Modern dentistry has supplied us with many excellent materials to restore damaged, missing, or broken teeth and give you the aesthetics you want for your smile.

Ceramic porcelain can be customised to blend flawlessly with your smile, so dental crowns no longer stand out. Composite resin can also be custom shaded, so you don’t have to worry about anyone noticing your dental filling when you talk, smile or laugh.

Porcelain material and composite resin are also durable materials that you can rely on when eating and chewing. Composite fillings bond directly to your tooth and don't react to temperature like metal fillings do, which means that composite fillings are less likely to break down and allow bacteria back into your tooth.

Tooth-coloured restorations are aesthetically pleasing and durable for your smile. Dr Kinsella and Impact Dental Ceramics (an onsite dental laboratory) have worked together to achieve optimum results for our patients over the last 25 years.

Dental Veneers in West Perth

Ceramic veneers are an ideal choice for eliminating many minor cosmetic flaws because they fit over your teeth and cover imperfections, such as:

  • Spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth or size discrepancies
  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Small misalignment issues
  • Stained or discoloured teeth

A veneer is actually a thin layer of porcelain that bonds to your tooth and is also stain-resistant. Veneers are easy to take care of as you'll be able to brush and floss your teeth just as you normally would. 

Dental veneers can repair one or a few teeth, or they can redesign your smile by changing the shape, colour or size of your teeth. It typically takes only a few weeks from start to finish before you can begin enjoying your new smile when you choose dental veneers. So if you're looking to change the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers may be an excellent choice.

Dr Kinsella, together with our onsite ceramist, combines science, skills and artistry and will work closely with you to ensure you achieve your desired aesthetic result.

Teeth Whitening in West Perth

Teeth whitening is one of the quickest ways to improve your smile. Our teeth naturally become dull or discoloured over time due to ageing, lifestyle choices or the foods we eat. Whitening your teeth can brighten your smile and is a simple way to make a significant impact on your appearance. It can even be done easily at home according to your own schedule with custom whitening trays we make just for your teeth. 

We'll take impressions of your teeth and make plastic whitening trays for you before sending you home with high-strength whitening gel designed to eliminate tooth stains and discolouration. Most patients achieve their desired results after bleaching their teeth for 30 minutes a day for about two weeks.

You will also have your whitening trays available to you whenever you'd like to brighten your smile. So whether it's a wedding, family reunion or holiday you have on your calendar, you can rest assured that your smile will always be camera-ready with a take-home teeth bleaching kit.

Dental Implants in West Perth

Missing teeth could be a concern for your smile and your dental health. When you lose a tooth, neighbouring teeth may start to move and drift, leading to bite misalignment and increasing your risk of developing problems like gum disease or tooth decay. You may also find that chewing becomes uncomfortable or challenging with the loss of one or more teeth.

Bone deterioration is also a concern with missing teeth because your jawbone no longer has a root to support and keep it stimulated.

The good news is that dental implants offer a solution that closely matches your natural tooth and will allow you to have all the ease and function of chewing you had before. Dental implants are even an option for patients missing multiple teeth because they can support a bridge or denture.

When you choose dental implants to restore your smile, Dr Kinsella oversees all the details of your treatment. He works together with an oral surgeon, who places the implant into your jawbone during a simple surgery, where it will naturally integrate with your bone and takes the place of your root. Because dental implants are made of biocompatible titanium, they fuse with your bone over time and provide a stable foundation for your new tooth. This process does take anywhere from three to six months to complete, but this healing time ensures that your implant is secure, and then it may potentially last a lifetime with excellent home care and regular dental checkups.

When your implant is fully healed and integrated with your bone, Dr Kinsella customises a porcelain crown to replace your lost tooth that will blend seamlessly with your smile and allow you to eat and chew with ease again. He can also design a bridge or denture supported by a few carefully placed implants to restore multiple gaps in your smile.

You don't have to live the challenges of having gaps in your smile. Dental implants can be an excellent solution for eliminating the discomfort of missing teeth and giving you back your smile again.

Dental Bonding in West Perth

Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t have to be excessively expensive. Dental bonding is another affordable way to help improve your smile.

Dr Kinsella uses composite resin material blended with your tooth to make some of the changes that veneers can make, such as restoring chipped teeth and covering discolouration. Composite resin is the same material that Dr Kinsella uses for tooth-coloured fillings, so he can customise it to the shade of your tooth, which complements your smile.

Composite material bonds directly to your tooth, so it can help eliminate problems like tooth size discrepancies or small gaps between teeth. In addition, it provides a durable and aesthetic solution for minor cosmetic issues.

Dental bonding is a non-invasive procedure that we can usually complete during one visit to our West Perth dental clinic. It also tends to be less expensive than other cosmetic dental procedures.
