Common Dental Problems Melbourne


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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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 Orthodontics.
