Teeth Whitening Options

Teeth Whitening Options

It’s important you get your teeth and gums checked for disease by a dentist before undergoing any teeth whitening procedure. The dental assessment will both confirm your suitability for teeth whitening and the best treatment option for you.

Where a patient’s teeth are deemed suitable for teeth whitening, our dental surgery offers customised options.

In-chair teeth whitening is not suitable for all patients hence a dental check-up is always the first step. If in-chair teeth whitening is deemed suitable for you, the appropriate treatment package is agreed with the dentist. Our dental surgery offers different options, taking into account factors such as patient age.

Where a supervised take-home whitening treatment is deemed suitable for the patient, a customised treatment package is arranged with the dentist.

An important part of any teeth whitening process is well-fitting teeth trays in order to apply the whitening agent. We offer the construction of customised teeth bleaching trays as part of your package.

Some cosmetic treatments may be claimable through your health fund. We recommend you speak to your health fund prior to commencing your treatment in order to confirm your rebate eligibility.

You can call our helpful staff on (03) 5134 1311 to book an appointment for your dental assessment.

Custom-fit Mouthguards

Custom-fit Mouthguards

Most winter sports are associated with physical contact- some quite excessive. Too often we have seen a number of trauma patients who have not been wearing mouthguards while engaging in contact sport. The results can sometimes be devastating.

A customised well fitted mouthguard is an essential prerequisite for anyone involved in any contact sport. If you’re not wearing a mouthguard, or if you have an old poorly fitting one, now is the time to make an appointment to have a customised mouthguard constructed. 

Don’t wait until you suffer major dental trauma to think about prevention!

Call us today on (03) 5134 1311 to schedule an appointment for your custom-fitted mouthguard.

Do you long to smile again?

Do you long to smile again?

Missing or defective teeth can not only impact the look of your smile, it can also impact on its functionality and overall health.

A dental prosthesis is a dental appliance that replaces your natural teeth, such as a missing tooth or covers up tooth defects. These dental appliances include full or partial dentures, implants, crowns, bridges and veneers, and some of them can be removable or permanently fixed in your mouth.

If you think you might benefit from a prosthesis, then Dr Caprara can explain the most effective option for your dental needs and develop for you a personalised treatment plan that will have you smiling again.

Contact us on 03 51 341311 to schedule your appointment today to learn more about your options including general dentistry and prosthodontic treatment.
