More Than Just A Great Smile!
How It Works
Achieve a straight and beautiful new smile through our orthodontics procedures
We have been working hard to help regain our clients confidence through their smile, and we couldn’t be happier with the results
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
In straightening crooked teeth, braces not only improve your appearance but also benefit your oral health and general wellbeing by:
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.
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:
There are a number of health benefits to straight teeth:
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.

We love our patients, and we are happy to hear that they love us just as much!
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!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
Amazing cosmetic dental practice, couldn't ask for more! Dream smile and lips achieved
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
Fantastic Staff! Experienced Hygienist and Dentist. Great location with private carparking.
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.
