Dental veneers are becoming ever so popular in the cosmetic dental profession…
Nowadays we want to get that perfect smile without having to withstand months of braces and continuous whitening treatments, with dental veneers patients are able to get a new smile in a timely fashion. At City Smiles in Melbourne we offer 100% Australian-made porcelain veneers for those patients who want a flawless smile.
I have to have them!…but what are they?
A dental veneer is a thin layer of material (we use porcelain at City Smiles) placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth/teeth or to protect a damaged tooth/teeth. At City Smiles we will take a mould of your teeth to begin the construction of your new porcelain veneers. Before we do this we remove a very small amount of enamel so that the teeth do not appear bulky once the thin porcelain veneers are applied on top. The next step involves sending your moulds off to the Andent dental laboratory in Melbourne to be constructed using high quality 100% Australian materials. Using Aussie made materials ensures that our procedures meet and exceed Australian dental standards, we are supporting an Australian profession and that you are receiving the best product available.
Your second appointment is where it all happens; we will prepare your teeth for the application of your veneers. This may involve applying a small amount of mild acid which will work with the bonding agent to secure your veneers. Then we will then meticulously place your veneers and apply a specialised light that activates and sets the bonding agent.
1# Quality, quality, quality… it’s all about durability and value
When choosing to invest in a new smile, we can only hope that we are putting our decision in the best product. At City Smiles we use porcelain because it is incredibly thin, tooth-coloured and can be customised to fit your individual teeth size and shape. The price of porcelain veneers is $700 per tooth which is a well worth investment with the quality materials we use. Veneers have been known to last over 25 years in some cases, with good dental hygiene which includes brushing, flossing, drinking acidic and richly colour drinks through a straw your veneers should withstand a couple of decades. We recommend our patients with veneers visit us twice a year to follow up and to have a general checkup on the rest of their mouth.
- do not change color over time
- cover virtually any imperfection, including gaps, chips, and stains
- long-lasting, most patients get at least a decade of wear from veneers
- durable and scratch-resistant
2# Veneers offer a naturally beautiful smile
There is nothing worse than looking at someone’s teeth that have been whitened too much or are uneven in colour, the great thing about veneers is how natural they look. Your veneers will be matched to the rest of your teeth ensuring that your porcelain smile goes undetected. The translucent quality of porcelain is much better at mirroring the natural light handling properties of natural teeth. This creates a sense of natural depth that cannot be achieved with other veneers.
3# Confidence booster
Today there is more and more of a focus is on how people look and how they achieved that beauty. People want that instinctively effortless look and this is one of the reasons porcelain veneers are fast becoming one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Being able to show off your smile can help give you the confidence lost from any problem areas that once prohibited you from smiling freely.
At City Smiles in Melbourne we can help solve your chipped, cracked or discoloured teeth, with our porcelain veneer treatment. Veneers are a quality investment that look natural and can help you to smile with confidence, and that is why they are becoming more and more requested in cosmetic dentistry.
Teeth are prone to breakages and damages that cause chips, fractures, decay and cavities that can happen instantaneously or slowly over time…
Teeth are made from one of the strongest substances in the body – enamel. Enamel is the outer most layer of the tooth and is white in appearance. It works to provide the inner layers of the teeth protection from the friction and pressure occurred when you eat and speak. If enamel is not properly looked after with proper oral hygiene it can begin to deteriorate and become weak. It is at this point that tooth damages are more likely to occur, which is why at City Smiles we offer stages of porcelain restoration treatments to stop further damage to the tooth while improving your smile.
It all starts at home: oral hygiene is essential for preventing most common problems…
By maintaining regular oral hygiene you are more likely to keep your enamel healthy and strong, in order to prevent it from erosion and deterioration. Tooth weakness occurs when the teeth are exposed to bacteria for an extended period of time, meaning the tooth unprotected long enough for plaque to form after the bacteria has mixed with saliva to form sludge (within hours of eating). Over time, if plaque is not removed, it can harden and turn into tartar (days without oral hygiene), which can only be removed by a highly trained professional. Tartar can slowly erode the enamel, weakening the tooth, which can become susceptible to tooth breakages.
Fix chips and cracks with Porcelain Veneers at $790 per tooth…
Aesthetic damages, such as chips and cracks, are easily fixed with porcelain veneers. By covering your tooth with a custom-made porcelain veneer you can completely alter the composition of your smile. It is quite easy to elongate teeth and hide imperfections, not to mention our porcelain is translucent like natural teeth and is also a very strong and durable material.
Protect your tooth from further decay with Porcelain Crowns at $890 per tooth…
Porcelain crowns or ‘tooth caps’ can be used to cover discoloured teeth, restore a tooth after root canal therapy, cover chips and cracks and other imperfections on the tooth. Like porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns are strong, durable and translucent which allow them to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. They are also custom-made to suit your smile.
Replace an entire tooth with a Porcelain Implant Crown at $1200 each…
Have you lost your tooth entirely? It will please you to know that you can regain your smile easily with our porcelain implant crowns. These implant crowns are very similar to our regular porcelain crowns, except they are specially designed to fit on top of dental implants that cost $1800 per implant. In order to regain function after missing teeth, patients at City Smiles can get dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium ‘rods’ that are secured to the mandibular (jawbone) where the missing tooth once stood. This implant stimulates the mandibular and gums, allowing for a permanent and durable solution to dentures and removable oral appliances. Dental implants give patients a new lease on life by giving them the ability to speak and eat properly again and, matched with porcelain implant crowns, you’ll never know the difference.
Rest assured that with affordable prices, City Smiles is here to help in your dental crisis…
The last thing you want to worry about when you are having a dental crisis is the price it is going to take to fix your smile. At City Smiles in Melbourne we understand the frustration, and that is why we strive to provide our patients with the best prices available without sacrificing quality. Our range of affordable and custom-made porcelain cosmetic and restorative treatments ensures that our patients regain their teeth and their smiles as soon as possible.

A Small Study was published that has Emphasised Why You Should Get Your Teeth Whitened By a Dentist…
This study was small in that the number of people who participated in it was less than twenty. And yet the results of this study warrant further research.
What was this study about?
A team of university scientists looked at whether or not tooth whiteners were a risk factor in oral cancer. One of the reasons the research team started to look into this is because of one of the key whitening agents in tooth whitening is carbamide peroxide. This breaks down into the bleaching agent hydrogen peroxide which has been shown to produce cancer in animals.
See, if a dentist performs the tooth whitening treatment you know that their extensive knowledge of the mouth would prevent them from placing dangerous chemicals in your mouth. As the study points out, the peroxide component of the tooth whitening wouldn’t actually come into contact with the tissues of the mouth.
Why a Dentist Should Be Supervising Your Tooth Whitening…
If you were to get your teeth whitened by a dentist there is very little or no chance that the peroxide would get absorbed by the tissue of the mouth.
At the end of the day, this study was incredibly small and so far doesn’t really say anything dentists haven’t been saying for a while: for the sake of your oral health get your teeth whitened by a dentist.
Did you know that at least two countries have passed laws saying only dentists may perform tooth whitening treatments?
They did. Early this year two Western countries decided (through their respective legal systems) that tooth whitening was the domain of dentistry. Basically, if you aren’t a dentist or qualified oral health practitioner you aren’t allowed to whiten a person’s teeth.
While this is not the case in Australia, at City Smiles we strongly recommend visiting a dentist for your tooth whitening needs. After all, dentists are qualified to look after your oral health. A dentist can tell whether or not your tooth can be whitened and what the best way of going about it is.
Do you know all the reasons for why your teeth can become discoloured?
Did you know that your teeth can be discoloured from the inside out?
We guarantee you that an over-the-counter tooth whitening product couldn’t tell you why your teeth are discoloured. Or whether or not tooth whitening is the most effective way to treat your teeth.
There are treatments to whiten your teeth if tooth whitening isn’t going to work. An example of this would be veneers.
The point is that the best thing for you and your oral health is to get your teeth whitened by a dentist.

You MUST replace a missing tooth with one of our dental solutions
Losing an adult tooth is always a traumatic experience, and while we are able to see aesthetically the effect this has on the smile, many do not know the extent a lost tooth has on the balance of the mouth. If you neglect to replace a lost tooth, you are more likely to experience:
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth decay
- Crooked teeth
- Bone recession
If you fail to replace a missing tooth urgently you could be risking the above as well as more time and money. City Smiles has the most cost-effective tooth loss solutions available in Melbourne, with patients from Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, Queensland and the Northern Territory making the trip to receive our superior treatment and cheaper dental prices that do NOT compromise quality.
Restore Function and Aesthetics
Are you sick of loose, wobbly dentures or just want that missing tooth replaced? At City Smiles in Melbourne we offer a wide range of restorative dental treatments in order to allow you to eat, speak and laugh with confidence. Our restorative treatments such as dental implants also offer cosmetic benefits as they are shaped and colour matched to fit cohesively with your natural smile.
What are Dental implants?
Perfect for replacing a singular tooth, dental implants are titanium screws that are directly inserted into the jawbone material. Over a few months the jawbone begins to fuse with the implant as it heals, which creates a solid and powerful foundation for a prosthetic tooth. After we have installed the implant we will place a temporary porcelain cap over it until your next appointment when a permanent dental implant crown will be fixed permanently in place.
Dental Implants can be used for Full Arch Restorations
If you have lost an entire arch of teeth and are tired of your loose dentures, City Smiles is able to install several dental implants to support a permanent smile solution. There are two main treatment plans that our dental professionals are able to use when restoring full dental arches, these include fixed bridge restorations (permanent) and implant over-dentures (removable). Your dental professional at City Smiles will be able to recommend which option is best for you.
City Smiles prides itself on being the best and most efficient and affordable dentist in Melbourne, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Read on to find out 4 ways to help whiten your teeth
Tooth whitening treatments are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. When this treatment is performed by a qualified dentist it is also the safest option for beautifying your smile. However, did you know there were foods that can help keep your teeth white?
When it comes to teeth whitening a lot of the time dentists tell you what foods to avoid. So we thought we’d compile a short list of foods that can help keep your teeth white.
- Oranges and pineapples
These fruits contain an enzyme called bromelain. Bromelain acts as a natural stain remover. According to research, bromelain can help break up plaque. Why is this good? Plaque can lead to serious tooth decay if it isn’t kept in check.
Like oranges and pineapples, strawberries are an effective stain remover. Strawberries contain malic acid, and it is this acid that helps keep your teeth white.
- Dairy Products
Products like cheese and (sugar-free) yoghurt can help protect teeth against decay. This is because dairy products such as cheese and yoghurt contain lactic acid. Also, chewing on hard cheeses promotes saliva production which helps fight plague.
According to a study published last month, cheese increases the PH levels in mouth. The authors of the study said that this suggests cheese might have anti-cavity properties. Another study showed that the children of women who ate cheese and other dairy products during pregnancy were more likely to have better-than-average oral health.
- Carrots, Celery, Apples
Eating crunchy fruits and vegetables work as an abrasive to clean your teeth. These foods also produce saliva which helps prevent plaque from developing.
At City Smiles we offer a range of tooth whitening options to suit your needs…
Tooth whitening is the most popular form of cosmetic dentistry available. It is also, when carried out by a dentist, a safe way of brightening up your smile. There are a number of reasons why you should go to the dentist for your tooth whitening needs.
Firstly, a dentist is trained not just in looking after your teeth but your general oral health as well. What this means is that a dentist can take a whole-mouth approach to your tooth whitening to ensure that you get the best results possible. Secondly, teeth can become discoloured from the inside out. If this is the case then a tooth whitening treatment is not going to solve the problem. A City Smiles dentist would need to further examine your teeth to determine the correct course of action. If you go to a beauty salon or a kiosk in a shopping centre they are not likely to be able to identify potentially harmful signs of discolouration.
Quality is another big reason why getting your teeth whitened at City Smiles is the best option. At City Smiles in Melbourne we offer a range of tooth whitening treatments to work around your busy lifestyle.
Take Home Tooth Whitening Kits…
Take home tooth whitening kits at City Smiles are a great way to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your home. City Smiles uses the finest tooth whitening products to help you achieve your goal.
The Opalescence Take-Home System is a customised treatment designed to fit around your lifestyle. You will be given a customised tray that will comfortably fit your mouth. With these trays you’ll be given the Opalescence gel to help you whiten your teeth at home.
In-chair Tooth Whitening…
Our in-chair tooth whitening is an hour session using Opalescence Xtra Boost that produces great results. At the end of the procedure you’ll be given a take home kit to help keep your teeth white.

Oral health is so important, that’s why City Smiles is the leader in affordable dentistry and patient care
Oral health is very important. There is enough information saturating the internet and various other media outlets that emphasises this fact.
So why then do so many people avoid going to the dentist?
Well, there are two big reasons. The first is fear of pain, which is not irrational as most of us actively avoid anything that involves pain because it’s unpleasant. But over the years advances in dentistry have seen improvements in sedation methods.
Root canal treatments once considered a terrifying prospect are now no more painful than a filling. Thanks to modern anaesthetic treatments, pain is not such a big factor in dental treatments. Although it is still what inevitably forces people to come see us.
The second reason people avoid the dentist is the cost. Oral health is so important and yet patients are asked to pay huge sums for necessary treatment. At City Smiles our approach to practicing dentistry allows us to minimise cost while still delivering great results.
Having a healthy smile shouldn’t be a luxury…
Everyone should be able to afford the best in dental care. After all, dental health is so important to our overall health. So it should not become an inaccessible thing people go to only as a last resort.
City Smiles in Melbourne combines a team of experienced, certified dentists with modern techniques and technology to enable you to afford the treatment you need. All of our dentists are members of the Australian Dental Association and each of our dentists have a specific field of interest.
If money is an issue we also have interest-free payment options that can be worked out when you come in for a free consultation. Also we offer HICAPS for immediate rebates from Health Funds.
Giving you the best patient care so that you can keep smiling…
At City Smiles in Melbourne we offer a range of treatments tailored to suit your needs:

It’s now easier than ever to transform your tired smile and look your best…
When you come in to City Smiles for a consultation, the first thing we will need to do is find out exactly what results you are after. This allows us to select the treatments that best suit your needs. The initial consultation also allows us to explain exactly what you can expect from the outcome of each treatment and the overall effect on your smile and oral health.
- Tooth Whitening
At City Smiles in Melbourne we have two options for tooth whitening. We offer a take home tooth whitening treatment and an in-chair treatment. Our take home tooth whitening kit uses the Opalescence Tooth Whitening System. The benefit of this take home system is that it is customised to work around your lifestyle. Our in-chair option is a quick and powerful tooth whitening solution. This treatment takes an hour and at the end you are given a take-home kit to help you maintain your new white smile.
Tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment and when performed by a qualified dentist it is also the safest.
- Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a great way to enhance your smile, and are made of an ultra-thin shell of porcelain. These ultra-thin porcelain thin shells are customised to fit your tooth shape and size.
Veneers are a minimally invasive dental treatment and are excellent for treating gappy, chipped or discoloured teeth. These are the surefire way to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
The health benefits of dental implants far outweigh the aesthetic benefits. Dental implants help in retaining the strength of the jaw, gums and bite alignment.
The aesthetic benefit of the dental implant is actually to do with the crown that is attached to the implant above the gum line. Once the implant—after a number of months—has fused with the bone it acts as a sturdy and strong tooth root for a dental crown that will mimic in both function and aesthetics.
The aesthetic and functional benefits of dental crowns are numerous. The functional benefits of a crown are that it protects a weak tooth from cracking, and helps maintain a healthy bite. The aesthetic benefit of a crown is that it is manufactured to match the tone, colour and shape of your natural tooth.
At City Smiles in Melbourne we will combine these treatments to give you an individualised treatment plan that best suits your needs.

At City Smiles we understand that periodontal disease and diabetes seem to have a blurred line, so we have done our best to explain how they interrelate…
Diabetes is a serious and complex medical condition that affects the entire body and often lasts for a whole lifetime. For our bodies to be able to function properly, we need to convert sugars (glucose) from the food we eat into energy, which requires a hormone called insulin. Those with diabetes cannot produce insulin, and instead carry the extra sugars around in the blood, which can cause a wide range of problems.
So how does diabetes affect the mouth?
People who suffer from diabetes are also more prone to infection in the body, which means they are more likely to develop gum disease than those who do not have diabetes. Gum disease can lead to painful chewing, bone loss and even tooth loss! Dry mouth, also a symptom of diabetes, can cause soreness, ulcers, infections and tooth decay. This is why it is important to not only have regular check-ups at your GP, to ensure your body health, but also at our Melbourne dental practice to ensure your oral health, too.
Prevention is always better than a cure…
At City Smiles in Melbourne we are committed to providing superior dental care to all our patients, which includes restorative, cosmetic and general dentistry. If you suffer from:
- Bleeding gums after brushing or flossing
- Sore, swollen, red or inflamed gums
- Gum withdrawal
- Loose teeth
You may be suffering from gum disease, which can result in tooth loss if not treated promptly. At City Smiles our elite team of dental professionals work to identify, diagnose and treat any sign of gum disease within the mouth, and maintain this check with every visit.
How you can take care of your smile…
At City Smiles we know that a busy lifestyle can sometimes lead to neglected oral health regimes, but we stress that with new links to other issues caused by poor oral health such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory issues and even cancer, it has never been more important to maintain your dental health. This is why we recommend your oral health routine include:
- Flossing between your teeth at least once a day, preferably before sleep.
This is because as we sleep we produce less saliva in the mouth, so if any food debris is stuck overnight, it can wreak havoc on the health of your smile. It is also important not to just flick the floss in and out of your teeth, but instead gently move it between the teeth and create a C shape. This will help to ensure all debris is removed from the teeth and from under the gum line.
- Brush your teeth at least twice daily
This is a staple rule that dental professionals have been singing for decades, and it’s because it makes all the difference! By maintaining an oral health routine that includes brushing after breakfast and once again before bed, you are effectively removing plaque accumulation that would otherwise cause gum disease or decay.
- Visit our dental practice every six months
By coming to our practice every six months you are allowing our dental professionals to diagnose any issues whilst in their infancy, and treat them promptly for a healthy, beautiful smile.

Do you struggle with discoloured teeth? At City Smiles we have taken all the hard work out of discovering your very best, brightest smile…
Tooth discolouration can occur for a wide variety of reasons, whether it is due to illness, a certain medication, age or simply the foods you eat, it is possible to turn a stained smile into a radiant smile with these helpful hints. (However we urge our patients to see a GP before making any sudden or significant changes to their diets, and that these tips should help discolouration on the outside of the teeth, but should not be taken as medical advice.)
ONE – Strawberries, the natural bleaching agent…
It’s true, strawberries are not only delicious, they actively help to whiten your smile! Containing an astringent (a coarse agent) and vitamin C, strawberries effectively aid in removing surface stains and any lingering plaque on the tooth enamel.
TWO – Nature’s toothbrush, the apple…
Crunchy foods such as apples or even celery are fantastic as natural toothbrushes. When you bite into an apple, the abrasive skin works as a natural cleaner by scraping off any plaque accumulation; leaving a cleaner tooth surface. The simple act of chewing the apple also helps to remove excess food debris and bacteria, and contains something called malic acid, which is a chemical commonly found in tooth whitening products and dissolves stains.
THREE – Raisins help to wash out your mouth…
Commonly referred to as a ‘natural mouthwash’, raisins are fantastic for inducing saliva production, which helps to rinse away plaque. As we age our mouths slow down saliva production, and as a result bacteria can thrive and cause issues such as periodontal (gum) disease or even tooth decay. This is why it is important to maintain saliva flow as it is your very first defence against bacteria, plaque and discolouration.
FOUR – Drink plenty of water…
Do not underestimate the power water can have within the mouth. By drinking the recommended amount of water (3 litres a day for men, 2.2 litres for women), you can help flush out bacteria in the mouth before it has a chance to cause damage to your smile or affect its colour.
FIVE – Visit us at City Smiles for a whitening treatment…
Have you tried the above but can’t seem to put a dint in your tooth discolouration? Want to see swift results so you can smile with confidence much sooner?
