Our cosmetic treatments designed to enhance your smile

Here at New England Dental Group we offer cosmetic treatments that can be permanent or temporary depending on how you want to enhance your smile.

Teeth whitening

As discussed in the previous article “what do you really know about tooth whitening? Get the facts here!” we discussed the different myths and facts associated with whitening treatments. New England Dental Group practice safe and trusted teeth whitening programs with the Erskine Designer White teeth whitening system.

Why would I want teeth whitening?

As we grow older, our teeth become more and more susceptible to staining. This could be from:

  • drinking coffee
  • drinking wine (white or red)
  • smoking cigarettes
  • eating foods with natural dyes

These factors are just some and the fact of the matter is, even with regular check-ups and brushing and flossing – if you continue to consume those products, your teeth may become stained regardless.

Teeth whitening prescribed by our New England Dental Group professionals can help to resolve these detrimental stains in a fast and effective manner.

How teeth whitening treatment works

Using a series of custom designed trays from your own teeth impressions filled with an active whitening agent, the treatment works by gradually whitening your teeth over time. During your consultation, our dentist will ensure you know all the specifics you need for your teeth whitening plan prior to your treatment to ensure the treatment is suitable for you.


Porcelain veneers offer a more permanent solution and can resolve a vast selection of cosmetic dental issues. Often these are used for the imperfections that cannot be treated by whitening products or otherwise may require costly and timely orthodontic treatment to resolve.

Why would I want veneers?

Veneers can cover a range of different cosmetic dental problems such as:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Discolouration
  • Out of shape teeth (too long, wide, short or narrow)
  • In some cases, misaligned teeth
  • Damaged teeth
  • Gummy smiles

Veneers provide a mask for your smile that has the ability to completely renew your smile. The treatment looks natural and can last for years – giving your smile that symmetrical and stain resistant smile.

How veneers work

The treatment generally requires 2 separate stages:

  1. After assessing your eligibility for the treatment and deciding on your treatment plan, our dental professional will carefully remove a wafer thin amount of the tooth’s natural enamel. This is to ensure there is enough room for the veneer to bond comfortably without reducing functionality for the patient.


After this, in between your appointments your veneers will be custom fabricated to suit the smile you desire, and will be ready to be bonded in your second appointment.


  1. The second appointment will involve the gentle bonding of the veneers to your existing teeth. Once the veneers are perfectly fitted and tailored to suit you, your new smile should be ready for show!

Your veneers are made out of materials to greatly imitate the natural appearance of your teeth so the treatment can go by without the notice of your friends.

Getting the job, post-grad style

Enhancing your smile is one of the most socially acceptable, easiest and least expensive ways to cosmetically assist your natural self. According to the AACD Smile Survey conducted in 2012, 48% of the participants agreed that the smile is the most likely to be remembered characteristic when you first meet someone.

Updating your smile doesn’t only have to be about the graduation photos – do it for your new career as well. To find out more about New England Dental Group located in Armidale and our cosmetic treatments to help you finish up your studies in style, book a consultation with us today.
