A beautiful smile can help you in almost every aspect of your life, beginning with the appearance of your smile
There are many benefits to a beautiful smile – it can make you more appealing aesthetically as well as enhance the way you hold yourself. According to recent studies smiling is said to physically change the chemical balance in your body, enhancing the way you feel and therefore enhancing the mentality of others around you. Smiles have even been found to lower your blood pressure and boost your immune system due to altered chemistry in the body. Despite all of these reasons, the main reason people go on a quest searching for a better smile is because it enhances the way they look and the way others see them when they first meet.

Porcelain veneers are designed to completely transform the appearance of your smile
The fastest way to a beautiful smile is through the use of porcelain veneers which are thin porcelain coatings which are shaped around the teeth. These can both protect the enamel of your teeth as well as create a much more beautiful smile. This treatment is popular among celebrities who are often adored for their perfect pearly whites. There are three key components to a perfect celebrity smile:
These three components can be completed with porcelain veneers as they fix small discrepancies in the straightness of your smile by concealing crooked teeth. They can also be colour matched to your teeth or created a whiter shade than your natural teeth in order to create the smile that you’ve always desired.
White teeth are the most coveted possession of anyone’s smile
If veneers are not an option for you, you can create white teeth by undergoing our in-house whitening treatment. This will leave your teeth much whiter and brighter than before, leaving you confident enough to smile in front of the camera, mirror and anyone you meet!
Crowns have both restorative and cosmetic properties
Crowns are a more sturdy version of porcelain veneers as they provide a much stronger casing for the tooth. They are bonded to your natural teeth by your dentist to prevent further damage from attacking or infecting your natural tooth. They can also be used to cover chips or cracks and strengthen your teeth.
We combine all of these elements with the power of our cosmetic dentistry
Here at Perfect Teeth in Redlynch and North Cairns we are passionate about all-encompassing smile makeovers which usually combine a number of these treatments. If you have a variety of concerns about your smile you can rest assured that Perfect Teeth will be able to conceal or fix them.

Endodontics commonly refers to root canal therapy which can be used to save your tooth from extraction
Perfect Teeth in Cairns is passionate about preserving your natural teeth and protecting your teeth from harm. As dentists we must urge you to maintain a strict oral health regime; however as humans we understand that sometimes damaging bacteria such as plaque can get the better of us. Plaque is one of the most damaging things that can affect our mouth and dental health, that’s why it’s so important to monitor and maintain our oral hygiene habits.
Plaque is the product of microscopic bacteria in the mouth
Our mouth is full of millions of different types of bacteria and not all of them are harmful. However there are some strains of bacteria that can harm our teeth such as Streptococcus mutans. Streptococcus mutans are one of the main harmful bacteria that can infect our mouth and they are part of the reason why your dentist recommends steering away from sugar. Streptococcus mutans are particularly harmful because sugar puts them into a frenzy which causes them to make polysaccharide, which is a large component of dental plaque that can become solidified on the teeth, turning into harmful and stubborn tartar.
What does plaque do to your teeth?
Tartar and negative bacteria can eat away at the enamel on your teeth and create cavities and infect the inner layers of dentine and pulp. Dentine and pulp are much more delicate sections of the teeth which can be detrimentally affected by harmful bacteria. The pulp is the nerves located within your teeth and when they become affected it can be extremely uncomfortable and painful, later requiring root canal therapy and even extraction.
During Root Canal Therapy your dentist will remove the damaged pulp from the tooth which would otherwise eat away at your tooth from the inside out. It is usually used as a last resort to avoid tooth extraction. It is important to care for your teeth through dental hygiene so that you can keep your natural teeth and avoid pain and trauma associated with dental decay.
Why is it good to keep my natural teeth?
While dental implants and bridges can provide an extremely close second to a natural tooth, nothing beats your authentic adult teeth. Maintaining your natural teeth is important because they provide optimum function and aesthetic. Teeth or dental implants also maintain the structure of the jaw bone which can recede if you neglect to fill in an empty space in the mouth.
Endodontics can be used to save your natural teeth in most cases of severe bacterial injury although this is not always possible.
How can I make sure plaque does not get out of control in my mouth?
Plaque generally appears as slightly yellow film on the teeth where the gum meets the enamel. This can be improved by brushing your teeth twice a day with a manual or automatic toothbrush and flossing before bed every night. One of the most important things you need to do is visit your dentist at Perfect Teeth in Cairns at least twice a year as they will remove any solidified plaque or tartar.
It is a magical experience that we fondly remember as we age, that first visit from the tooth fairy…
Losing that first tooth is an exciting time for your child, and now you can make their experience even more special with the help of these simple hints brought to you by Perfect Teeth! It’s about thinking outside the box so this can be a magical experience not just for your child, but for you too.
To kids it is not all about the one dollar coin left under the pillow – it is the ambience of the tooth fairy’s magic that makes it so delightful. Read on to discover three ways you could enhance the mystery and individuality of the tooth fairy.
One – Make a tooth fairy ‘receipt’
It could be as easy as writing a note thanking the child for their tooth. Get creative – you could even use some glitter or special stickers to help make the moment more special. There are some that you can purchase from specialty stores or even online that could truly add that exceptional touch to your child’s first tooth.
Two – Create a tooth fairy pillow…
A tooth fairy pillow will not only help to create that magical atmosphere around the loss of your child’s tooth, it will also make it easier for you to sneak in and collect it – unless they fall asleep with their arms around it! If you’re a creative and sewing buff this could be a fun task to undertake with your child and can help them understand that losing baby teeth is normal.
Three – Sprinkle glitter on the windowsill…
Try to make a little glitter path on the windowsill, so your child can see and believe the tooth fairy has really visited them in their sleep.
At Perfect Teeth in Cairns we track the development of your child’s teeth…
We recommend bringing your child in to visit our dental practice as soon as their first tooth develops or by the child’s first birthday, whichever comes first. This way we can keep track of the progression of your child’s jaws and teeth, and spot any dental issues early before they become severe.
