Dental cleaning (scale & polish) is conducted by our qualified hygienist here at the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre on Collins St in Melbourne.
Over time tartar (calculus) and plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) builds up on your teeth. Your teeth are continually coated in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which helps to strengthen and protect your teeth. Whilst this is a positive reaction, it also results in the excess build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth. In most instances the calcium deposits are tooth coloured and often overlooked as part of the tooth, but it can also range in colour from brown to black.
If tartar is allowed to accumulate on the teeth it will eventually create a haven for bacteria to thrive next to the gums. The reason we clean and polish your teeth is to leave the surface clean and smooth. You will know this sensation if you have had a clean and polish before, your tongue will be so appreciative. With a clean tooth surface the bacteria in your mouth are unable to stick to your teeth.
Our Hygienist at the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre is a qualified professional and your comfort is their number one priority. A scale and clean should not be a painful experience as the process itself does not cause discomfort.
The state of the art facilities at the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre ensure that all your General Dentistry requirements can be met in the one location. Many of our patients find that post teeth cleaning they elected to have their teeth whitened also. Like to know more about our teeth whitening?
