Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells used to imitate the natural color and shape of your tooth and improve your tooth’s strength and resilience.  Veneers can be a good solution for stained teeth that:

  • Don’t respond to whitening
  • Are chipped or worn
  • Have spaces between them

Veneers are a two-step process involving the removal of a tiny layer of tooth structure followed by cementing the veneers to the teeth.

Bonding improves the appearance of your teeth by filling in chips, cracks, and spaces or covering stains. Your dentist applies a tooth-colored material called composite resin directly to the surface of the tooth. The materials look and function just like your natural teeth. Bonding usually takes place in a single office visit and generally lasts for several years.

Even with regular brushing and flossing, your teeth become discoloured for many reasons, including:

  • Smoking
  • Certain medications
  • Drinking coffee, tea, or other beverages that can stain the teeth

Your dentist can whiten your teeth using a chemical bleaching process that can take place in the office or at home. In-office whitening involves a stronger solution and generally takes one or more visits. Using an at-home whitening option can take two to four weeks.

This is getting to be a very famous alternative used to straighten teeth. Invisalign uses a sequence of custom made aligners that are practically invisible and customised to steadily straighten teeth in the absence of metal wires or brackets. All aligners are worn for roughly 2 weeks and should only be removed for eating, brushing and contact sports.







Contouring involves reshaping patient’s tooth or teeth. This can include modifying the shape, width, position or length. This needs strong healthy teeth as it entails using a laser or sanding to obtain the new shape. Contouring is at times employed together with bonding to fill in chips.

Choose Your Smile Makeover Cosmetic Dentistry procedures and  Services


Before you can figure out how you will afford your smile makeover cost, it’s important to determine what dental treatment are on your list.

The Basic Fundamentals:


Some patients require a complete overhaul of their oral health before proceeding with major restorations. Gum disease therapy and TMJ treatment are examples of general and preventive dentistry treatments. Tooth extractions may even be required for teeth that are beyond the scope of other dental treatments. After all, if your teeth and gums aren’t healthy, they won’t be ready for cosmetic improvements. If you have a painful, broken-down smile, expect this to account for a significant portion of your smile makeover cost.

The Foundation:


Now that your mouth is clean and ready to be rebuilt, it’s time to make some choices. Dr. Castro will present you with every viable option based on your specific oral health needs. If you have missing teeth, dental implants, a dental bridge, or dental crowns may be an option. These restorative dentistry decisions will be influenced by your budget, desired aesthetics, and level of comfort, as well as the strength, age, and health of your natural teeth and gums.

The Bling:


Cosmetic dentistry treatments are the cherry on top, the smile makeover options that will give you the five-star, celebrity smile you’ve always wanted. Some of these treatments, such as teeth whitening, are extremely affordable. Other procedures, such as porcelain veneers, will necessitate a significant financial investment. One of the most significant advantages of selecting Dr. Castro as your cosmetic dentist is knowing that you will be in the hands of an experienced perfectionist, who will make recommendations for cosmetic dentistry enhancements on both the high and low end of the scale. Tooth bonding is inexpensive and quick, and it may be all that is required to repair an unsightly tooth. All options will be presented to you for discussion and decision-making.

Remember that smile makeovers can help you look younger, healthier, and happier, and they don’t have to be expensive. Depending on the state of your individual oral health, a few minor changes can have the same impact as a major overhaul.


How to Pay for Your Smile Makeover


Did you know that there are several payment plans  that won’t break the bank? It’s no secret that dental work can be expensive. But what if you’re determined to get your teeth looking their best without spending your entire savings?

All the things you need to know about Top Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure in Melbourne

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Being able to smile with confidence is a priceless feeling everyone deserves. Having a nice smile can help you look and feel your best. Studies even show that people live longer and happier lives when they smile. An attractive smile can be a valuable asset in all areas of your life from getting the job or promotion, to dating and meeting new people.

Very few of us are born with perfect teeth, and it is common to have at least a few things you would like to improve about your smile. In today’s image-conscious society, many people find their perceived dental flaws hard to ignore, which can affect self-confidence and often motivate them to seek solutions with the help of a cosmetic dentist.

How do you feel when you look at your smile in the mirror? Are you embarrassed because of how your teeth look?

Cosmetic dentistry is a range of dental procedures focused on correct cosmetic imperfections in the teeth and smile. In simple terms, it’s about making you and your smile look more attractive. Dr. Castro views cosmetic dentistry as an artform that encompasses the use of color, design, and psychology to enhance your overall appearance. Whether it’s a teeth whitening, or porcelain veneers, her philosophy is to perform the most conservative procedure to accomplish one’s individual cosmetic needs. Fixing your smile is a great way to boost your self-esteem and confidence and with today’s advances in technology and materials, it’s possible to predictably get the smile that matches your face and personality in just a few visits.

Common Cosmetic Dental Problems

Common Cosmetic Dental Problems

None of us are born with perfect teeth. Fortunately, modern advances in dental techniques and technology allow skilled cosmetic dentists to correct a multitude of cosmetic teeth imperfections. Our skilled team of caring professionals can help address common issues such as:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Damaged teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve your Smile and Appearance

How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve your Smile and Appearance

When patients come in to see Dr. Castro for a cosmetic consultation, she takes a series of high-resolution pictures of their teeth and smile. Looking over these pictures together, she always asks what they would change if he could wave a magic wand and instantly transform their smile. For some, they may like the size, shape, and alignment of their teeth, but the color is something that bothers them. Others may like the color but they have short teeth that are chipped, damaged, or worn down. A lot of times as people age, they show less teeth when they smile leading to wrinkles and sunken in cheeks. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Dr. Castro also sees a lot of patients that show too much teeth and gums when they smile, which creates a disproportionate teeth to gum ratio. All of these issues can be fixed through conservative cosmetic dentistry.


Dr. Castro calls it a smile transformation, but in actuality, having your smile fixed can transform your life! She has seen people instantly gain confidence and embark on a whole new future that they never thought possible. It amazes her that a lot of patients take better care of themselves after having their smile makeover. If your smile is something that’s holding you back, then getting it fixed can be a game changer!

Correct, balance and fix structural and cosmetic flaws.

Investing in yourself with cosmetic dentistry gives you the benefit of improving your smile and bringing out your natural beauty. It can also help improve your overall health. If your teeth are broken, chipped, worn down, or have gaps between them, you may not be able to chew and eat your food thoroughly. Porcelain veneers can help restore these damaged teeth and bond them together strengthening them and preventing future damage. Veneers are also perfect for covering dark colored and stained enamel.

Make you look more attractive!

Along with your eyes, your smile will draw people in when you’re communicating. Dr. Castro designs smiles from the outside in. She believes you need to closely examine a person’s entire face, their skin tone, eye color, and even personality to create optimal results. She is guided by following the Golden Proportions philosophy, which helps her create a smile that is in perfect harmony with the rest of the face.

An attractive smile is in balance when the gums and teeth are in proper proportion and the teeth adequately support your cheeks and lips. Your smile is the center of your face and when it matches your style and personality, you will look and feel more attractive!

Give you a better outlook on life.

Many times, patients come see Dr. Castro so they can become more physically beautiful on the outside, not realizing how their lives will transform on the inside. Struggling with insecurity about the appearance of your teeth and smile can make you feel shy and uncomfortable around others. After a smile makeover, many of these issues are instantly reversed! Dr. Castro sees spirits lift and lives take off as patients become more comfortable with themselves and others. This significant shift often leads to better relationships and more opportunities in life!

Erase years of aging and make yourself look younger.

The whole world spend billions of dollars on temporary cosmetic fixes like BOTOX® Cosmetic, fillers, and even plastic surgery to make themselves look younger. Most of these procedures offer only short-term, temporary fixes that must consistently be maintained. In many cases, a rejuvenating smile makeover with porcelain veneers can be a better long-term solution for helping you look younger, happier, healthier, and, in some cases, smarter! Porcelain restorations can provide better support for your lips, and, when used to open your bite, can erase wrinkles from around your mouth. The best part is, these changes are permanent and unlike natural teeth, veneers resist staining and wear. With proper care, a rejuvenated smile can maintain its strength and beautiful appearance for many years.

Can help propel you in your career!

You don’t have to be a celebrity or an actor to realize the positive impact a nice smile can have on your career. Your smile says a lot about who you are. It projects confidence and can make you appear more professional and competent. People like to be around others who smile as they tend to be more open and flexible. In today’s competitive job market, when two equally qualified candidates are competing for the same job, the one with the nicer, healthier smile usually wins.

Prevent future damage to your teeth.

Most people don’t realize that cosmetic dentistry can reinforce damaged and cracked teeth, protecting them from further damage. Teeth that have fractures and worn edges can be strengthened when bonded with porcelain veneers or, in severe cases, fitted with porcelain crowns. Additionally, maintaining healthy gums is important to both your oral and physical health. Placing veneers on teeth that have gaps between them can help protect the gums and lead to better overall oral hygiene.

Improve your social life.

When you have a bright white smile and straight teeth, you’ll likely become more outgoing! Dr. Castro sees it all the time with his veneer patients, they start smiling more and attract positivity into their lives. They feel much better when they look in the mirror, and are more excited to go out, socialize, and live life!

What is Conservative Cosmetic Dentistry?

What is Conservative Cosmetic Dentistry?

No two smiles are alike, and the same can be said about our patients needs and goals. Dr. Castro will spend time with you at your initial consultation getting to know you, your personality, and what you’re looking to accomplish. She will come up with a treatment plan that is custom tailored for your smile! Dr. Castro’s goal is to do the most conservative procedure that will give you the best looking and longest lasting results.

For people who have nice teeth and a good smile, some teeth whitening may be the best treatment. Enamel recontouring can fix minor chips with conservative smoothing and polishing to rejuvenate a smile. Bigger chips and cracks can sometimes be repaired with cosmetic dental bonding. If porcelain veneers are the best option for you, Dr. Castro prefers to conserve as much of your healthy tooth structure as possible. This allows him to use a very thin porcelain, which looks more natural and provides more strength.

POPULAR Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures and Treatments

With more than 2 decades of transforming smiles, Dr Castro have a strong passion for aesthetics and  for creating beautiful smiles, and she’ve had the opportunity to help thousands of patients over the years. They know what they want, or at least how they want their smile to look.

While traditional dentistry focuses on prevention, cosmetic dentistry focuses on restoration. Dr. Castro’s  goal is to restore your smile to its natural beauty and then help you prevent it from being anything less. To do that means determining what cosmetic dentistry options are right for you specific situation.

Below are our popular Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening has become an essential part of personal maintenance. When you have a set of stunning pearly whites, your quality of life and self-esteem will soar.

Whether you want in-office or at-home whitening, we have a brilliant solution for you.

Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding is a beautiful quick-fix for decay, chips, rotations, gaps or discoloration. This relatively noninvasive procedure can restore the look and function of your natural teeth. Typically bonding lasts 5-7 years.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have chipped, dull, rotated or gapped teeth, ask us about porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are known to be the most durable, life-like, and esthetic cosmetic dental solutions for a plethora of dental challenges.

Veneers are a rapid way to adjust the alignment, shape, and size of your current teeth. They’ll completely revitalize your smile and the best news is that they typically take only 2 visits 1 week apart.

Snap on Smiles

Snap On Smile is a great permanent or temporary solution to a less than perfect smile and is capable of achieving exceptional results at a very affordable cost

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can fortify your teeth for years. Porcelain dental crowns have reflective properties that can perfectly imitate natural teeth.

Our cosmetic dentistry services don’t end here. We provide many more methods to transform your frown into a beautiful smile.

What is Smile Design?

What is Smile Design?

While smile makeover costs are important, you can’t always measure the cost of your improved confidence and self-esteem.

A smile design is a procedure that combines esthetics and good dental health. Dr Castro will diagnose and analyze your smile to provide you with the best oral health and appearance possible. Understanding the interrelationship of oral structures — including muscles, joints, bones, gingival tissues and occlusion — helps provide you with the best treatment options for a new, beautiful smile.

Aspects to Consider with Smile Design

Your lifestyle, age and goals all factor into the analysis to provide you the best treatment options.Three questions help refine what you hope to achieve:

  1. Do you want a youthful appearance? When your adult teeth first came in, they were longer and more prominent because they hadn’t been worn down yet. Longer, central teeth give a more youthful appearance and also draw the eye to the center of your face, especially attractive if you have an attractive nose, chin and lips.
  2. Are you looking to achieve a more sophisticated appearance? Those long, youthful incisors begin to wear down as you age until your teeth form a horizontal line across your mouth. This straight line is often associated with wisdom and maturity. It also can emphasize the width of your lower face, which is appealing if you have a narrow jaw line.
  3. Would you like to find a middle ground? Suppose you want some attention drawn to your nose or attractive lips, but you don’t want the length of your teeth to overshadow the rest of your adult face. A sporty appearance lends warmth and a more casual demeanor to your overall appearance, taking advantage of aspects from both the previous choices.

As a part of your Cosmetic Dentistry treatment, we aims to emphasize your most attractive facial qualities. At your appointment consultation, we will discuss several alternatives, and  make specific recommendations. Factors include:

  • The shape of your face. Longer or narrower faces benefit from accenting width through the sophisticated choice, which helps your face appear more uniform and oval. A perfect nose or stunning lips are featured with the more youthful choice.
  • The image you wish to project. Are you in a position that requires a mature or sophisticated look? Is your personality warm and casual? What do you want the world to see?
  • Your present age. A mature face with hard-won laugh lines may seem at odds with the youthful choice. A more subdued color and a sporty or sophisticated design choice may better match your lifestyle and overall appearance.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry painful?

Is Cosmetic Dentistry painful?

Whether you’re looking to eliminate coffee stains or correct your crooked teeth, cosmetic dentistry treatments can transform your smile in a big way.

Many people feel they could benefit from cosmetic dentistry but are hesitant to seek treatment, fearing painful dental procedures. However, these concerns are unfounded. With the latest advancements in technology, cosmetic dentistry doesn’t have to hurt.  There are now Cosmetic Dentistry procedures that are able to use less invasive techniques and conserve as much natural tooth as possible to avoid any discomfort.

Patients use cosmetic dentistry for a wide range of dental issues. Teeth whitening, straightening crooked teeth, teeth alignment and replacing metal fillings with a more natural color are some of the dental choices used to improve the look and functionality of the teeth. A common question asked by most patients is, “Does it hurt?” Fortunately, technology allows these procedures to conserve more of the natural tooth thereby circumventing a good amount of discomfort.

Treatments with Little Pain

  • Treatments such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers have little to no post-treatment discomfort beyond temporary sensitivity which can last a few days.
  • Porcelain veneers generally require minimal preparation of the natural teeth so injections and drilling are usually not necessary. These wafer-thin shells fit over the front or sides of the teeth to correct a wide array of cosmetic issues and the treatment is pain-free.
  • We offer PREPLESS OR NO PREPARATION Porcelain Veneer – this involves no numbing and no drilling.

Treatments with More Discomfort

In certain cases, the patient may need some preparation work done to the teeth depending on the procedure and the shape of the teeth. When receiving composite resin fillings, the patient may experience both initial and post-procedural discomfort if tooth decay is present. Decay can irritate the tooth and working on the tooth can cause further irritation. We  usually numb the area prior to the treatment so the tooth doesn’t have painful sensitivity. After the treatment, there may be some degree of sensitivity towards hot and cold foods and beverages that lasts for a few weeks or several months.

Alternative Cosmetic Dentistry Technique

For patient who absolutely does not want a grinding and numbing but have a strong desire to improve the smile, options involve Snap-on Smile appliance or Prepless Porcelain Veneer

How We Keep You Calm

About 15 percent of patients suffer from dental anxiety and a fear of the dentist. If you find yourself feeling anxious at the thought of having dental work done, you should know that there are plenty of safe, comfortable relaxation methods that give patients a pleasant experience.

Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for patients who suffer from severe anxiety and may have been putting off critical dental treatments as a result. If you’re a good candidate, we will select the appropriate oral sedation option to help you relax and eliminate any anxieties before your treatment.

What should I expect from a Cosmetic Consultation?

During your initial visit to our cosmetic dental practice, Dr Castro will conduct a thorough smile analysis, examining the health of your dentition and identifying opportunities for improvement.

In order to maximize time, Dr. Castro asks his patients to come prepared. Have a list of questions you would like to discuss and have answered. If there’s a specific smile you have in mind, it’s helpful to bring in pictures to the consultation.

It’s also important that you feel comfortable and understand the process of the procedure you are having done. Dr. Castro always invites patients to follow up with her if they have any questions they forgot to ask or if they need clarification on something that was discussed.

Getting a Smile Makeover with Cosmetic Dentistry is similar to buying anything expensive. You go through different stages of buying cycles. With this in mind, we offer 2 types of Consult


This will fit those potential buyer on their first stages of research about Cosmetic Dentistry. This type of patients are not yet ready to buy but would rather see a lot of dentist to shop around for ideas, information and cost and for them to see who could better help them in their Smile goals. This is the stage where patients are assessing if the practice is the right fit for them. As they plan to visit more Dentist, they prefer to have a free consultation.


This type of extended Consult will cater to patients who have already done all their research, perhaps been to our office already and now, at this stage, ready to commit to have the Cosmetic Dentistry treatment.  In our office, this is now the stage where we spend time giving all the extended nitty-gritty informations about the treatment details, procedures, options, financing and much more  about the Cosmetic Dentistry treatment.

Does my Health Insurance cover Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment?

Does my Health Insurance cover Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment?

Australian insurance companies, such as HBF, HCF, BUPA and Medibank usually cover Cosmetic Dentistry procedures such as Porcelain Crown, Bridges or Veneer under the category of ‘major dental’.

Major dental is typically covered under the policies of higher extras cover which generally covers surgery and emergency treatment. Major dental typically includes complex and expensive procedures like braces, crowns, wisdom teeth removal, bridges and root canals. You can also receive cover for orthodontic and endodontic works.

How much does my health fund pay?

Each health fund pays a different rebate amount, depending on their rules for each level of cover. For an approximate rebate amount, ask your health fund what the maximum rebate amount for your “major dental” category is.

At the practice, once you have been assessed, you will be provided with an itemised treatment plan. You can give this plan and the item numbers to your health fund. They will then be able to provide you with a precise, detailed quote.
