Offering Gentle Dental Care to the Gold Coast

Keep your teeth nice and healthy and looking amazing with our Gold Coast dental treatments. From general dental check ups and dental cleans to dental implants and crowns, our dentists can’t wait to work with you to enhance your smile.

General Dental

To ensure your teeth stay nice and healthy, it’s essential you’re visiting your dentist regularly, at least every six months. Offering a range of affordable, comfortable general dental treatments, we can complete routine check ups to ensure your teeth are in good shape. As well as that, we’ll complete dental cleans and fillings where needed to ensure the health of your teeth.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Where teeth have been damaged, chipped, or have experienced some trauma, a dental crown is an excellent solution to keep your tooth in good health. Dental bridges are excellent solutions for bridging any gaps in your smile. Together, dental crowns and bridges can fill in gapped smiles, improve the structure of your teeth, and in turn, improve both your comfort while eating and the appearance of your smile.

Dental Implants

If you’re missing teeth, dental implants are an amazing long term solution to replace those teeth. These dental implants are made from medical grade titanium and work to actually “root” into your gums and mimic the structure and strength of a real tooth. Once your implant has attached into your gum and healed, we’ll then reattach your restored or replacement tooth.

Teeth Whitening

It’s really difficult to avoid staining or yellowing your teeth, no matter how meticulously you brush. So many foods and drinks contain additives that work against our teeth, including some of our favourites: tea, coffee, and red wine. Professional teeth whitening can reverse some of these stains and keep your teeth nice and white. Our take-home whitening kits mean it’s easy to refresh your smile when it’s needed.

Mouthguards & Occlusal Splints

If you’re playing a contact sport, DIY mouthguards from the chemist don’t do everything they can to protect your teeth. Having a dental mouthguard specially designed for your teeth will work to protect your teeth as well as your lips, cheeks, neck, and brain from injury. Having your mouthguard fitted correctly is essential to avoid concussion in the case of head knocks. Occlusal splints are very similar to mouthguards but work to protect your teeth from grinding in your sleep. It fits to your upper jaw and prevents you from grinding or wearing out your teeth. Occlusal splints work to save you money in the long run by protecting your teeth from getting worn out, cracked, or damaged.

Preventative Dentistry

Avoid damage to your teeth and gums with preventive dentistry. We’ll work with you to implement a daily oral health routine that keeps your teeth clean and healthy. Your Gold Coast dentist will also provide a dental clean, removing plaque buildup from hard to reach spots.

Emergency Dental & After-Hours Appointments Available

Dental pain can be a terrible experience, especially when it strikes in the middle of the night and you don’t know what to do. We have emergency dentists on-hand to offer support in these situations. If you require emergency dental, get in touch with us via (07) 5563 3133

Cosmetic Dentist Gold Coast: Invisalign Specialists

Our Gold Coast dentists can improve the appearance of your teeth and smile using cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry includes treatments like dental cleans, teeth whitening, dental implants, and crowns and bridges. As well as those, our dentists are Invisalign specialists. Invisalign is an amazing way to straighten your teeth without the appearance or discomfort of traditional braces. 

 

Invisalign straighteners are just as efficient as traditional braces but are removable, invisible, and far less restrictive.

Dentist Gold Coast FAQs

It depends on the condition of your teeth as well as any underlying health concerns you might have. We recommend yearly visits for children and six monthly visits for adults. If you have a family history of decay or plaque build up, have diabetes or are a smoker, you may need to visit the dentist more frequently.

You can try using over the counter pain medication while you wait to see a dentist. Alternating between paracetamol and ibuprofen can work to dull the pain. If the pain is too severe, we offer emergency dental. Get in touch.

Children aged between two and 17-years-old whose parents receive the Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment are eligible for The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). 

 

This allows them a $1000 cap on dental over a two year period. The schedule includes the following dental treatments:

  • Fillings
  • X-rays 
  • Active maintenance
  • Examinations

Here at Be Dental we are preferred providers for: 

  • Medibank Private Members Choice Advantage 
  • HCF 

All other participating health funds are accepted.

You should be visiting the dentist regularly, because there are a range of dental issues you won’t notice yourself: tooth decay, cavities, or the early signs of gum disease. 

 

Visiting the dentist regularly means these sorts of issues will be picked up early and cost you less money and less discomfort in the long run. 

 

However, if you do notice any of the following, book an appointment:

  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Bleeding when you brush or floss
  • Pain while chewing
  • Bad breath (consistently)
  • A consistent bad taste in your mouth
  • Unusually sensitive teeth

Dentist Gold Coast: Payment Plans Available

It can be difficult to pay for dental treatments straight up sometimes. We work to offer affordable dental treatments to the Gold Coast. As well as that though, we offer payment plans through Zippay and Openpay to make budgeting for the dentist less stressful. You can learn more about our dental payment plans here.
