Cosmetic dentistry is a personal choice based on your goals. Our top Mooloolah, QLD dentists will discuss the many options available and help you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
Dental crowns in Mooloolah, QLD are tooth-saving restorations designed to help you keep your natural teeth rather than having an extraction. Fractured, broken and deeply decayed teeth often require a dental crown to prevent further damage to the tooth structure and nerve, which can feel quite painful.
Whenever possible, our dentists recommend ceramic or porcelain dental crowns to match the surrounding teeth. In some cases, a full gold crown will provide better protection for posterior (back) teeth in patients that have a strong bite or a teeth-grinding habit.
Dental crowns at our Mooloolah, QLD dental clinic also have cosmetic dentistry advantages for patients looking to improve their smiles. Dental crowns reshape teeth, improve colour and rebuild teeth that have excessive wear.
A dental crown provides more support than a simple filling. Because dental crowns cover the entire tooth structure, they hold damaged teeth together when subjected to the force of chewing. Without the added reinforcement of a dental crown, a weakened tooth may split or break, causing a painful dental emergency that may result in an extraction.
If you ever have concerns about your recommended treatment, including the need for a dental crown, contact our Mooloolah, QLD dental surgery to speak with our helpful staff. Our dentists will always detail every treatment option to keep your smile looking and feeling its best.
Losing teeth because of disease or trauma calls into question the future of your smile. We offer a number of tooth replacement treatments at our Mooloolah, QLD dental clinic to complete your smile and make it possible for you to eat your favourite meals.
- Dental implants
- Fixed dental bridges
- Partial dentures
- Complete dentures
- Implant-supported dentures
The option that will work best for you depends on your goals and lifestyle. We are happy to go over all of the available options and help you make a choice that works best for you.
When our dentists make a recommendation to replace a missing tooth, they account for a number of different factors to organise a treatment plan based on your needs.
- The location of the tooth
- The patient’s lifestyle and goals
- Personal budget and finances
- Cosmetic dentistry plans
- Overall oral health
- Bone health and density
Dental implants. Dental implants replace the entire tooth and provide a convenient option for patients seeking a long-term solution to tooth loss. Dental implants replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.
Partial dentures. Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth with a removable plate that attaches to remaining natural teeth with clips or wires.
Fixed dental bridge. Two healthy adjacent teeth anchor an artificial tooth or teeth, filling the gap in the smile. Fixed dental bridges match existing teeth and fill the space left by a missing tooth, keeping remaining teeth from shifting.
Complete dentures. Edentulous patients—those missing all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch—may choose to replace their full smiles with complete dentures. Today’s dentures are attractive and reliable, as well as being a cost-effective solution.
Implant-retained dentures. Sometimes patients have difficulty with ill-fitting dentures. By placing dental implants, dentures can lock into place for added stability.
Contact Mooloolah Dental to book an appointment to discuss the best way to replace your missing teeth.

You're invited to give us a call and arrange your next dental visit. Rest assured that we will strive to exceed your expectations by making you feel comfortable and confident in the dental care we provide at Mooloolah Dental.
Sleep Disorder Treatment Options
Snoring, teeth grinding and obstructive sleep apnoea are all considered sleep disorders. We provide oral appliance therapy for Mooloolah, QLD patients to protect their teeth from excessive wear and achieve a restful night’s sleep.
Frequency of Dental Visits
At Mooloolah Dental, we recommend regular check-ups and cleans based on each patient’s individual needs, so providing a blanket recommendation is impossible without a dental evaluation. If, however, you are generally healthy and have few dental restorations, you might be one of the patients who can stay healthy with twice-yearly visits.
If you are recovering from periodontal disease, or have an active infection in your gums, we may recommend visits to our Mooloolah, QLD dental office three to four times per year to help you improve your oral health and avoid the health complications that come from gum disease.
- Heart conditions
- High blood pressure
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Certain types of cancer
- Premature or low birthweight babies
Ageing and hormonal fluctuations can make it more difficult to keep your gums healthy. Pregnancy gingivitis is common, and we provide more personalised treatment plans to protect mothers and their unborn babies.
Some people build calculus more quickly than others due to the mineral content in saliva, diet and overall health. If you feel like you need an additional scale and polish, contact our Mooloolah, QLD dental clinic to arrange an appointment. We are here to ensure that you feel healthy and confident with your smile.
We welcome toddlers, children, teens and adults to become part of our dental family.
