How laser dentistry and other technology is improving cosmetic treatment in Melbourne

Cosmetic dentistry is any procedure that improves the appearance of a person’s smile. In our office, all treatments are performed with aesthetics, health, and functionality in mind. This is one of the reasons we have embraced laser dentistry in our practice. Lasers use the power of light, filtered and intensified. In dentistry they are used for a variety of applications, most commonly as a replacement for a drill or scalpel.

Quality dentistry

A laser, in the hands of a skilled practitioner, can carve tooth material with microscopic accuracy while creating no dust or vibration. This is healthier because the maximum amount of tooth structure is preserved. It can also achieve superior cosmetic results because it gives your dentist a tool that is precise.

Quality patient experience

Laser dentistry enables us to provide a better patient experience. It is relatively quiet, comfortable, fast, and efficient. Additionally, it does not subject tooth material to the pressure and vibration that a drill does. At Smile In Style we pride ourselves on the use of advanced dental technologies. We use the latest techniques and biocompatible materials as part of our quest to deliver the best care to you. We have two locations, serving residents throughout the Melbourne area. You can reach us at 03 8400 4104 (Moonee Ponds) or 03 8001 6021 (Sunbury) if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
