We have been working hard to help regain our clients confidence through their smile, and we couldn’t be happier with the results

Straighten and align your teeth with orthodontic treatments

Our experienced and friendly staff at our Melbourne practice are qualified to recommend and administer orthodontic treatment so you can benefit from a beautifully straight and healthy smile for life. At Aesthetic Laser Dentistry we believe that orthodontic treatment is not just for children, but for people through all stages of life.

It is never too late to fix your smile, and our dedicated and skilled dental professionals will sit with you to understand your needs and desires so you can undergo the best orthodontic treatment for you

Health benefits of braces

In straightening crooked teeth, braces not only improve your appearance but also benefit your oral health and general wellbeing by:

  • Helping to prevent tooth decay. Straight teeth are easier to clean. This reduces the risk of plaque attacking tooth enamel and causing cavities.
  • Protecting your gums. Crooked teeth can lead to gum disease (periodontitis) as well as tooth decay, as infection eats into the soft tissue and bones supporting your teeth.
  • Helping digestion. Orthodontic problems make it difficult to chew your food properly. Our stomachs aren’t designed to break down large lumps of food.

About Misalignment

Malocclusion

Malocclusion is the technical term for teeth that aren’t in their ideal position between the two dental arches. Put simply it means “bad bite.” Different malocclusions can cause various issues with your oral health and can also impact your facial aesthetics.

In cosmetic dentistry fixing malocclusions can play a big role, not only by making teeth straighter but by also providing a solid foundation for any additional aesthetic work such as crowns or veneers. Orthodontic treatment is one way to fix malocclusions.

Children’s Orthodontics

The development of your child’s primary (also known as ‘milk’) teeth will be the foundation of how their adult teeth will erupt and function later in life. This is why if your child’s teeth are crooked or their bite is misaligned we recommend orthodontic treatment to help realign your child’s teeth or jaw to solve any bite issues.

The Australian Society of Orthodontists recommends that children’s teeth are evaluated by an orthodontist no later than seven years of age. By seven, most adult front teeth have erupted but the jawbone is still growing. This is one of the reasons why early intervention is ideal: because the jawbone is still growing it can mean faster and more effective treatment. Other reasons for early intervention include:

  • That it can prevent other, more serious problems from developing at a later age.
  • If further treatment is needed later in life it can be shorter and less involved.
  • If your child’s case is severe, treatment later in life may be not sufficient.
 

There are a number of health benefits to straight teeth:

  • Improved hygiene: straight teeth are easier to brush and floss than crooked teeth. Insufficient cleaning can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and in extreme cases tooth loss.
  • Problems with bite: a bad bite (malocclusion) can lead to teeth grinding and clenching which can wear down teeth and cause jaw joint problems. A bad bite can cause alignment problems which has been known to make speaking properly difficult.
 

We believe in continued observation to ensure your child gains the best results possible

At Aesthetic Laser Dentistry in Melbourne we understand that a child’s jaw continuously changes and develops as they grow. With this in mind we have placed a large importance on tracking your child’s dental development. Our friendly team will monitor your child’s teeth and jaws so that we can gain a full understanding of what they need now or in early adolescence.

Adolescent Orthodontics

Our jaws do not stop developing until early adulthood (ages 16-20), which means teeth can be easily straightened and shifted with orthodontic treatment. At Aesthetic Laser Dentistry we provide patients with a range of teeth straightening options for teenagers. Two of those orthodontic treatments we offer are:

Braces

Braces are an affordable and effective orthodontic treatment that has been highly developed over the past couple of decades. Our individual prescription computer aided designed braces give your child a constant and efficient method for straightening their smile.

We at Aesthetic Laser Dentistry in Melbourne will recommend this treatment as it is one of the most favourable orthodontic treatments available. Treatment time for conventional metal braces can take anywhere from 12 to 24 months. However each case is assessed on a patient-by-patient basis.

Clear Aligners

If you are looking to straighten your teeth but don’t want the metal wires running across your teeth, we also offer clear aligners. This orthodontic treatment uses neither wires nor brackets and is a discreet and subtle way to correct crooked teeth. There are a number of pros and cons to choosing this form of orthodontic treatment. Some of the benefits of this treatment are:

Enjoy crunchy and sticky foods:

Clear aligners can be removed which allows you to eat all the foods you would not be able to eat if you had braces. However, you must brush and floss your teeth before putting your aligners back in.

Maintaining oral hygiene:

You can remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth. The advantage to this is that by being able to brush and floss your teeth regularly you do not have to visit the dentist as often as you would if you had braces.

Discreet treatment

The virtually invisible appearance of this orthodontic treatment means that you can smile with confidence while you wear the aligners. So there will be no impact of your confidence to smile.

Clear aligner treatment usually takes around 12 months, however the length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and your compliance in wearing the aligners. It should also be noted that not everyone is a suitable candidate for clear aligners. Therefore, it is important to talk to your Aesthetic Laser Dentistry dentist to see if the treatment is for you.

Adult Orthodontics

While adult orthodontic treatment typically takes longer, the team at Aesthetic Laser Dentistry in Melbourne can still help you achieve a beautiful, straight smile. Discover how you can find the straight smile you have always wanted with Aesthetic Laser Dentistry’s high quality orthodontic treatments.

Some of the treatments we offer our adult patients include, but are not limited to:

Traditional braces

Traditional braces have been around for a long time and are still being used because they are an effective and successful way to straighten teeth. Metal braces have evolved quite a bit since they were first introduced almost a hundred years ago.

Today’s braces are less bulky, less obvious and more comfortable than they once were. Depending on the severity of your case, metal braces treatment might last 12-24 months. Of course, the treatment time does depend on the condition of your teeth and jaws.

Clear Aligners

If your profession requires you to look a certain way (such as models, TV presenters, front-desk staff, PR manager etc.) then Clear Aligners may be for you. With clear aligner trays that are comfortable and removable, this treatment is designed to fit around your lifestyle and needs.

Clear aligner treatment is subtle in appearance and in its effects. Subtle because the clear aligners are practically invisible so no one will notice you are getting work done. Also the changes are made slowly: every 6 weeks you receive a new set of aligners to gently move your teeth into position.

Clear aligners have a number of advantages over braces:

1. Freedom with your diet

Unlike braces, you can remove your aligners when you eat. This means that you can enjoy crunchy food that would otherwise harm your braces. It also means that you do not have to worry about getting any sticky foods stuck to your braces.

The only thing that you must do before replacing your aligners is brush and floss your teeth.

2. Your oral health

You can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth. The advantage of this is that you are able to maintain your optimal oral health during treatment. An added bonus is that you won’t have to visit the dentist so often because you can keep your teeth clean.

This treatment process does require you to wear the aligners as often as your dentist prescribes. Failure to do so could result in the treatment either taking longer than planned, or not being as effective.

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for clear aligners, talk to the team at Aesthetic Laser Dentistry in Melbourne to find out the best treatment for you.

Testimonials

Patient Stories

We love our patients, and we are happy to hear that they love us just as much!

Katelyn G

Thank you so much for having me in today Dr James! The team was amazing, they made feel sooo comfortable and my teeth are normal super sensitive so honestly a 10/10 experience. Be sure to check them out!!

Matthew S

I have never been a huge fan of going to the dentist but James made me feel incredibly comfortable throughout the whole procedure. It was relaxed and I never felt rushed. I am glad I have found a dentist I can connect with and I'll definitely be coming back for my check-ups.

Chantelle I

So thrilled with my experience with Dr James. He is a perfectionist and made sure I was completely happy with my new veneers. I broke my 2 front teeth when I was 8yrs and no one has ever been able to make them natural until now. They are just perfect and I have so much more confidence. The staff are all so lovely and caring, I honestly couldn’t recommend these guys enough!

Anthony K

Had an amazing experience at this dentistry. The staff were very friendly and Dr James was polite, detailed with explaining what was happening and made me feel very comfortable, regardless of my fear of visiting the dentist. I will definitely be using this place as my local dentist from now on.

Tim W

I have been to quite a few dental clinics in my lifetime and can admit to being fussy at times, however at last I can finally say ive found a clinic that I would be more than happy to go back too. My experience with Dr James B was phenomenal, I was treated with care, respect and professionalism. Ive been to plenty of dentists before and its simply been a chore for both me and them (I wont name names), giving no real reason to go back to the same dentist. Dr James has been the first dentist to show an interest in me as a patient and as a person, taking me through every step of the plan and procedure I had to undergo.

Ari

My son is a little anxious boy and was really scared to go to the dentist. Dr T was amazing with him and took special care to keep him comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr T to anyone who is nervous about seeing a dentist. The best experience.

Aneta R

What an experience. Met Dr Philip Hand to see my child, what an amazing person, been through so many doctors that would just be like you had a bad luck, for the condition of your child, nobody cares. Without even explaining of my daughter condition, he offered his help and handful of best contacts in Melbourne to help me and my girl. He is not only the best dentist he has the hands to help others. Thank you God for meeting a Doctor like Philip Hand, my self Aneta and Aurora will be forever grateful

Jessica G

Amazing cosmetic dental practice, couldn't ask for more! Dream smile and lips achieved

Anthony J

The team at Marriot and Hand were simply amazing. Dr Hand was very knowledgeable and explained everything about the treatments and why it was necessary. Karen was warm and open to all sorts of questions. I never felt rushed. As someone that has not been to a dentist for many years, it was time to face the music - I found them extraordinary professional and caring. Their service was so good I felt like I was catching up for a coffee with a friend rather than a visit to a dentist office. I'll look forward to my next appointment

Nushan Z

Fantastic Staff! Experienced Hygienist and Dentist. Great location with private carparking.

Jass F

After my MCHN suspected the cause of my son's breastfeeding issues was a tongue and upper lip tie, I went to see Dr. Philip Hand. He was one of the more reasonably priced dentists for this procedure. He was very friendly and put me at ease right away. He took the time to examine my son thoroughly and had a great manner with him. He obviously does his job properly and is not just out to get money, as he told me that neither tie was significant enough to warrant cutting. He noticed tightness around his facial muscles, though, and referred me to an oesteopath who has managed to solve the issue. This dentist knows his stuff, is friendly, and if it hadn't been for him, my son would not be feeding properly. Highly recommend him.
