Meticulous attention to detail and care, for every facet of dentistry, from a check up or first dental visit, all the way through to directing the transformation of smiles with multidisciplinary teams.
All of the technological advances available in cosmetic dentistry are available to us with up to the minute training and studies in Australia and internationally, including digital smile design technology and 3D printed restorations.
Our close team have worked together for many years as East Brisbane Dentists, and Brisbane Smile Boutique, and pride themselves on friendly and streamlined care, where a preventive care appointment or the most complex of dental issues are seen to efficiently, with empathy, and with the best quality of care.
Our team have expertise in this gentle type of orthodontic care, and see many patients who attend to straighten their teeth, with years of experience and advanced training in this revolutionary technology, with Invisalign, and backed by University of Queensland degrees.
Truline and Clear Correct accreditation, which are more affordable brands of clear braces, for gentle straightening of teeth, without the metal brackets.
Lifetimes of experience in porcelain technology and techniques for beautiful and natural smiles.
Where Invisalign is not appropriate, we are able to offer solutions with smile design techniques using computer planning and our master ceramist. This allows us to provide excellence in aesthetics with durability in mind, using solutions such as tooth bonding, dental implants, dental bridges, crowns, resin veneers, restorative care, porcelain inlays and onlays, porcelain veneers, facial injectables if required, and teeth whitening.
The most important aspect of cosmetic dentistry is a natural appearance with durable results that maintain health.
The advent of pressed porcelain technology is an era of dentistry that allows our dental professionals to perfectly recreate teeth.
dentistry run by dental professionals
In this modern day of dental practices being bought by global corporations, private health insurance funds and franchised for profit, our practice has remained completely independent, and is dentist run. Materials are selected that are best suited to the individual application and guidelines, following advances and technology that are available, with the highest calibre of service, and no effort or time is spared to create the best results possible. Our dental professionals have the traditional focus of dentistry as healthcare, and take pride in being independent of corporate pressures. By maintaining independence no other person or company has control of materials, techniques, timing, scheduling and a myriad of other factors, which mean that our dental operators have complete freedom to treat patients at their best.
We have many patients who were scared of the dentist, and we are able to offer a calming approach to dental treatment and we take the time to explain. Our work is to ensure that our patients are comfortable and as relaxed as possible. Our experience and team personalities are able to care for everyone, no matter the complexity of any issue, in a seamless and caring manner, while focusing entirely on the individual and their specific needs.
Our dental practice caters to children and families, as well as providing aesthetic and durable solutions to any dental issue. We offer gentle and firm direction, and a focus on prevention and building good habits for life. Many of our patients have attended since they were in kindergarten and are now in University or working, which we love.
Our dentist is the mother of grown up children and is able to connect with, care for and assist babies, toddlers, children, teenagers, and their parents, to have healthy smiles for life.
