Tooth whitening or bleaching is a cosmetic dentistry process intended to improve the color of the teeth to a more pleasant, youthful and lighter shade.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry process which repairs tooth chipping, fills in gaps, improves size, alignment, shape or color of the teeth. Bonding uses various shades of composite resin material (a mixture of fine quartz particles and resin), molded into the ideal tooth shape, cured and set with an ultraviolet blue light. This directly bonds the composite resin to the treated tooth surface (hence the term ‘bonding’), which is then polished to achieve an enamel-like shine.
Caps, crowns, porcelain crowns and bridges are dental restorations hand made in an Australian laboratory to mimic and restore your natural tooth shape and function. Caps and crowns are used protect or cosmetically improve individual teeth; bridges are used when there is a missing tooth or teeth involved.

Dr Anthony Vinci will accurately assess your cosmetic dentistry needs and offer the best treatment options for you.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Cosmetic veneers, porcelain veneers or laminates are wafer thin porcelain restorations that are cemented to the front of teeth. Veneers are used to hide defects of tooth trauma, development or alignment to improve aesthetics and give you that ‘movie star smile’. Porcelain veneers provide long-lasting results in improving your smile.
Composite Resin fillings are a white, biocompatible and natural looking restorations for repairing cavities. They require minimal tooth preparation and are therefore very conservative. Composite fillings are indicated for treating small cavities and replacing old silver fillings. For bigger cavities, a porcelain inlay or onlay may be recommended (Hand Made in an Australian Laboratory).
Dental implants are used to replace the roots of teeth and can be used to support single or multiple replacement teeth, dental bridgework or a denture. Dental implants are made from pure titanium and come in various shapes and sizes so they can be tailored to each patient. Titanium is used because of its biocompatability and ability to directly fuse to bone in a process called Osseointegration.
