Broken Teeth

Broken, Chipped or Cracked a tooth or filling? This can be associated with pain and will need urgent dental treatment. Depending on the size of the chip or break, there are a variety of options available.
Have a read at our Dental Restoration page to find out more.

Bad Breath

Bad Breath, or Halitosis, can be caused by having gum disease or the presence of dental decay. Left untreated, the condition gets worse. The bacteria in the mouth forms volatile sulphur compounds and can produce a bad smell. So what can we do?
Visit our Gum Disease page to learn more.

Bleeding Gums

When our gums bleed, it is a sign of inflammation. Left untreated, this can lead to bone loss and eventually losing your teeth. Bleeding gums can be caused by not having routine dental hygiene visits, periodontal gum disease, and can also bleed during pregnancy.
Visit our Check Up & Clean page to find out how we can help get your dental health back on track.

Worn Down Teeth

Years of wear and tear, certain habits, and extensive dentistry, all can give way over time. It may be about time that you need a major overhaul of your teeth. Do you have old fillings, broken teeth, root canals and missing teeth? It may be time for a new smile – to be able to laugh and eat and smile – getting that self confidence back again. Speak to us at The Smile Designer so we can work out a treatment plan that is tailored for you.
Find out more at our Dental Restoration page.

Sensitive Teeth

Do your teeth twinge when you eat or drink? Tooth sensitivity is caused by worn tooth enamel or exposed nerves in your teeth. When you eat or drink something with an extremely low or high temperature, you may feel a sudden, sharp flash of pain. Sensitivity can be caused by dental decay, gum recession, brushing too hard, or clenching and grinding our teeth.

Discoloured Teeth

Are your teeth stained or discoloured? Do you want to smile with confidence again? Almost anyone is a candidate for whitening.
Visit our Teeth Whitening page for more information.

Missing Teeth

Start your Smile Journey with us at The Smile Designer! Missing a tooth or multiple teeth can affect the way you look and feel. Functionality is affected and over the years things start to get worse. Our aim is to work out the possible options and provide costs that will help guide you in the right direction.

Crooked Teeth

Some of our patients never had the opportunity to straighten their teeth when they were younger. Some parents want to give that same opportunity to their growing kids. At The Smile Designer Dental Studio, we offer a range of options such as Invisalign and Braces to our patients of all ages. In some instances, Porcelain Veneers may be an option to improve the shape, size and colour of your teeth without having to go through Orthodontic treatment.
Schedule an appointment and speak to our team to find out more.

Wisdom Teeth Pain

At The Smile Designer Dental Studio in Thornbury, we offer surgical wisdom teeth removal. Our team of experienced Melbourne dentists can work with you and help you through all the options and costs available.
Visit our Wisdom Teeth page for more information.

Fear of the Dentist

Dental anxiety and fear is the leading cause as to why people don’t visit the dentist. We invite you to meet us at our warm and welcoming practice, where we can guide you through your options as to how you can overcome these fears.

For excellent dental care, I highly recommend Dr. Nathan !Vee T.Vee T. ★★★★★ Today I had a wonderful experience at my appointment with Dr Gareth. I have been to the dentist many times in my life but still get those nerves going into any appointment. The second I walked in I was greeted by a lovely young lady who was so friendly and welcoming. My time with Dr Gareth was no different and he put me at ease quite quickly and answered all my questions with lots of information and care. Because of this I have decided to take further dental care with The Smile Designer. My experience with Mia after my appointment was warm, engaging, caring and most importantly very informative.

Thanks for looking after my family and friends for such a long time.Peckham F.Peckham F. ★★★★★ I have seen Dr Gareth several ti.es now and always have received fantastic care.
