Common Dental Problems Melbourne

Join us for a Free Invisalign Consultation at The Smile Designer Dental Studio.

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.

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.

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.
Visit our Dental Implant or Dental Restoration pages to find out more information.

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.
