What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Sometimes referred to as a smile makeover, cosmetic dentistry is the dental work performed to improve your teeth or bite (including gums). Cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the shape, position, size, color, alignment, and a number of your teeth.
The benefits of having cosmetic dentistry work are that it can improve your oral hygiene, how you eat, speak, smile and most importantly your confidence. With a new, beautiful smile, you’ll no doubt be showing it off more often.
Choosing the Right Cosmetic Dentistry for Your Dental Issues

General Dentist or Cosmetic Dentist?
People visit a general dentist if they need advice around basic and preventive procedures. This may include checking on a toothache, being concerned about cavities, a dental check-up or oral hygiene plan. When it comes to the aesthetics of a smile, a cosmetic dentist is consulted. When you see a cosmetic dentist you’ll have a more qualified dentist who has completed additional studies to obtain further qualifications.
Dr. David Cao is your local cosmetic dentist Hawthorn. He is a member of the Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics and is a highly experienced cosmetic dentist with many years of experience in general dentistry. People seek him out as their preferred cosmetic dentist Melbourne.
Cosmetic Dentistry Consultations
Each cosmetic dental procedure and consultation process varies dependent on the type of procedure required. Because a lot of cosmetic dentistry is based on each person’s mouth, there are usually a few consultations. The reason for this is due to assessing the condition of your oral health and then the possibility of mouth molds and/or looking at the color of your teeth. Any replacement teeth or veneers are matched to that color. The starting point with all cosmetic dentistry Melbourne is as a general, thorough assessment and a plan based on the outcome.
