Veneers cover the front teeth and can significantly enhance the appearance of your smile by improving the colour and shape of your front teeth. Veneers are excellent for treating chipped, discoloured, slightly misaligned teeth or gaps between front teeth. They are a more conservative treatment than a crown and are often an alternative if the underlying tooth is strong and healthy.
Veneers are bonded to the front surface of the tooth and could be done directly using a composite filling (tooth coloured) or indirectly using porcelain. We will discuss your needs and plan with you the treatment choice that will suit you best.
For porcelain veneers in Melbourne, consider JD Dental care. Book your consultation appointment today to know what veneers can do to rejuvenate and bring back your smile.
Non – invasive procedure that lightens discolorations of teeth, enhancing your smile. The most common causes of discolorations are aging, consumption of staining substances (coffee, tea, tobacco), trauma, old restorations and nerve damage. There are different whitening systems in the market that can be applied in the dental chair or inn the comfort of your own home. At JD Dental Care we will recommend the ideal one for you after a full examination, diagnosis and clean to reduce the potential risk of complications and achieve the best results.
After dental whitening teeth will always be lighter. However, you may need periodic re-whitening for one or two days, once or twice a year, especially if you continue to use staining substances like caffeine or tobacco products.

How does it work?
Your dentist will first carry out a full dental examination to assess the overall health of your mouth. Provided everything looks good, we will then explain your teeth whitening options.
We will take some photographs to check the existing shade of your teeth. Then an impression will be taken and sent to the Boutique Whitening laboratory, where your bespoke, custom-fit whitening trays will be made.
Your trays will be fitted at the practice and we will show you how to use the whitening syringes and explain how long to wear the trays for. In most cases, you will see an improvement in just a few days and optimum results in around 3 weeks.
It really is that simple!
Day or Night Whitening?
Boutique Whitening comes in different formulas so that you can whiten your teeth during the day or overnight as you sleep, depending on what suits your lifestyle.
- The Day kit contains 6% hydrogen peroxide and is designed for 2 hours wear per day
- The Night kits come as either 10% or 16% carbamide peroxide, which is designed for 6 hours overnight wear
While both kits will produce the same end result, we will be able to explain the differences in the types of bleach and advise the correct formula for you. This will be based on various factors, including your lifestyle, preferences and dental history.

Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is a safe comfortable way to get a bright, white smile. An initial consultation is recommended to ensure there are no underlying oral health issues.

We recommend the use of Tooth Mousse for 1-2 weeks before your whitening procedure to improve lightening results, resolve pre-existing sensitivity.

Teeth whitening results are very stable, leaving you with a stunning smile long after treatment is over. However, there are a few factors that can make teeth become discolored again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discoloration. At-home whitening products have been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
There are many causes to tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption highly coloured foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, aging, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discoloration.
Working from the inside out, the active ingredients in the bleaching gels penetrate your teeth to break down the discolored molecules deep down in your teeth, removing stains and whitening your smile.
