The difference between professional and over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments

Non-professional teeth whitening treatments are also known as over the counter products, such as strips and toothpaste. These products vary in their price, difficulty of use and effectiveness.

Philips Zoom professional whitening is a fast, effective and safe way to whiten your teeth. Your dental professional will either apply the treatment for you, or fit you with a customised trays so you can do the treatment at home.

Results from professional treatments can be immediate (up to 8 shades whiter in 45 minutes), and because a dental professional is involved, the process is safe, reliable and hassle free.


Invisalign- A clear alternative to braces

Some patients prefer “invisible” braces instead of the traditional look, hence clear aligners such as Invisalign have become a more popular option in recent years. Invisalign is great in aiding the correction of misaligned teeth as it can be more comfortable and esthetically pleasing. Our dentist can offer Invisalign as an alternative should you favour this over the regular fixed braces. For more information regarding Invisalign please visit www.invisalign.com.au/about-invisalign

Whether it is fixed braces or Invisalign, it is important to have a detailed consultation with our dentists so that we can carefully plan the treatment process to help you achieve the best result for your smile.


Cosmetic Injections

Category : Services

Wrinkles and volume loss are a natural part of the ageing process. As we get older our skin gets thinner and drier and the body decreases its production of natural collagen and elastin. At Sunshine Family Dental, we are here to help you maintain a fresh, youthful appearance whilst enhancing your natural features. We offer botox (Botulinum Toxin) and dermal fillers that are FDA approved and proven to be safe. Allergic reactions are extremely rare. These cosmetic injections can be used for cosmetic enhancement, clenching, grinding and improve a person’s smile by reducing the appearance of lines or wrinkles around the mouth. Make an enquiry now so our dentist can give you a consultation to assess your suitability for these procedures.

For a limited time only, we have a Special Introductory Offer: $495 for either botox (125U Dysport) or dermal fillers (1ml Restylane)

Anti-Wrinkle Injections


Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Ever wish you could just stop the clock and preserve things as they are, whether it’s your job, your relationship or maybe your appearance? But what if, instead of stopping the clock, you could turn it back? Not just stop the visible signs of ageing in their tracks, but smooth them out so they’re much less noticeable?

Here at Sunshine Family Dental, we offer skin rejuvenation treatments that help to get rid of frown lines, reduce lip lines, remove forehead wrinkles, minimise the wrinkles under eyes, and much more. By administering non-invasive anti-wrinkle injections in the face, you can  remove lines and wrinkles that add years to your appearance.

How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a safe, effective and extremely popular wrinkle reduction treatment that can help take years off your face in just minutes.

They contain muscle relaxants made from a natural, purified protein which is injected into the face using very fine needles. These relaxants inhibit the nerve endings that cause the wrinkle-causing muscles in the face to contract, reducing their ability to do so. This helps to soften expression and age lines, resulting in a younger, softer and refreshed appearance.

Whether you opt for treatment around the nasolabial lines, want to get rid of smile lines, or want laugh line fillers to smooth out lip wrinkles, anti aging injections allow you to reduce the appearance of common signs of ageing.

About The Treatment

If you’re looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that requires little to no recovery time, anti-wrinkle injections can deliver the results you’re looking for. Used for cosmetic purposes to treat everything from forehead wrinkles to lip lines, these injections can also be used to treat the likes of eye spasms, central nervous disorders, and more.

Smile Lines

Smile lines, also known as laugh lines or nasolabial folds, form as the muscles contract with every repeated smile or laugh. They form on the sides of the mouth and can finish up towards the nose. Smile lines are some of the deeper lines around the mouth, and while they indicate that you’re someone who smiles and laughs a lot, they can lead to an aged appearance. Through nasolabial folds treatment with anti-wrinkle injections, the muscles that contract when you smile or laugh are relaxed, thus reducing their ability to form wrinkles. Laugh line fillers also work with the skin’s natural elasticity to ‘push’ out the existing wrinkles, giving a much smoother, more youthful appearance.

Frown Lines

While many people might think that frown lines are the long forehead lines above the eyes, they are in fact the wrinkles that form between the eyes. Frown lines, as the name suggests, form when the muscles contract during the frowning motion. They can be exacerbated by sun damage to the skin, as ultraviolet rays can break down the collagen and elastin, thinning out the skin and significantly reducing its elasticity. Wondering how to get rid of frown lines? Anti-wrinkle injections into the affected area can provide the skin with the collagen it needs to smooth out the wrinkles and improve your appearance immensely.

Crow’s Feet

When we laugh, it shows not just in our mouths but also in our eyes. It makes sense then that just as we get laugh lines around our mouths, we also form lines at the outside corners of our eyes – commonly known as crow’s feet. Crow’s feet form as we start to lose elasticity in the skin around the eyes due to the reduction in the production of collagen and elastin. Crow’s feet wrinkle treatment injections allow you to replenish the substances that keep your skin smooth, reducing the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes and making you look and feel younger.

Forehead Lines

Forehead wrinkles are created every time we raise our eyebrows or frown, and are exacerbated by consistently neglecting to apply sun screen to the area. Forehead lines almost span the same distance from eyebrow to eyebrow and can be quite deep or minimal in size. Sunshine Family Dental can help you to remove forehead wrinkles with anti-wrinkle injections that infuse the skin with the collagen and elastin for smoother, refreshed and more youthful skin.


Dermal Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

As we age, our skin loses that plumpness, hydration and elasticity which is fundamental to a beautiful, fresh face. Dermal fillers are an anti-ageing treatment that can restore these elements to the face. A clear gel compound is injected into the skin, giving fullness and hydration to the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and plumping up sagging contours. This gives the complexion a fresh, natural and more youthful appearance.

The substance used in dermal fillers is found naturally in the body and plays a vital role in the skin’s ability to counter the natural and environmental causes of ageing.

What areas can be treated?

Dermal fillers are used for certain areas of the face and body that require volume, firmness and hydration. They are most commonly used to plump the lips.

What conditions can be treated?
– Thinning lips
– Sunken cheek bones
– Smile lines, marionette lines and other facial wrinkles
– Depletion of skin and facial volume
– Sagging

How many treatments will I need?

Dermal filler treatments last for around 20-40 minutes and, depending on your treatment, results can last anywhere from 6-24 months. Factors including age, lifestyle, skin type and condition will affect the longevity of these results. Most people will require a maintenance treatment after 6-12 months.

Does it hurt?

Because a very fine needle is used and treatment duration is quick – usually around 30 minutes – any discomfort is minimal. Topical anaesthetic can also be applied before treatment to ensure this.


Orthodontic Treatment

Category : Services

Orthodontics is a specialty in dentistry that aims to treat and improve misaligned teeth and jaw arrangement. This can be completed by using traditional braces with fixed metal wires and brackets, or alternatively through the use of clear aligners such as Invisalign.

 

Our dentists are trained to use one of the most advanced orthodontic tools for fixed braces. Instead of a “one size fits all” approach, we customise each appliance accordingly so that treatment is efficient and effective for our patients.
