General Dentistry

At Shine Dental Clinic, we provide basic and advanced general dental care designed to maintain and restore oral health.

Regular general dental check-ups help you keep your teeth and gums healthy and bacteria-free, preserving the life of your teeth and preventing the need for invasive and expensive procedures to correct problems.

Children require the same standard of regular dental care that adults do in order to keep their teeth healthy, strong and looking good. From the time a child’s teeth erupt, it is beneficial that the child sees a dentist on a regular basis. Doing so can better ensure that the child’s overall oral health is maintained. Additionally, the process of initiating regular dental visits at an early age can set the stage for a lifetime of good oral health habits.

Regular dental check-ups can prevent the need for major dental work in the future and is far more cost effective than allowing problems to go on undetected. Check-ups, cleans and associated services are often subsidized or provided with “no-gaps” to members of private health insurance funds who have extras or ancillary cover.

It is almost never too early to get into the healthy habit of six-monthly dental visits.

Our general dental treatments offered include:

At Shine Dental, we take general dentist services seriously since poor oral health can negatively affect a person’s overall health. Oral conditions such as gum disease, missing teeth or oral pain can impact the quality of our life by affecting the way we speak, eat and socialise.

Since oral health problems can affect our physical, mental and social wellbeing it is important to create and maintain the habit of regularly practicing good dental hygiene. By doing so you will prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease.

However, it is vital to visit your general dentists at least twice a year to remove all the plaque and tartar that cannot be removed with a toothbrush. These bacteria can infect your gums and if untreated can lead to tooth loss. The only way to get rid of tartar is during a professional oral cleaning.

At Shine Dental, we believe your dental health should simply be tailored to your own periodontal needs. With a professional dental examination, our general dentists here at Cranbourne will be able to understand the exact care your teeth required to have outstanding oral health.

To further comprehend your dental needs x-rays are necessary. This way your dentist can see the whole picture and prevent oral problems by detecting decay and any other teeth or gum conditions that can be unseen on an examination.

If tooth decay is detected, white fillings are used to restore your teeth and relieve all the associated pain. However, if the damage is too significant and has reached the nerve a root canal might be needed.

With this in mind, it’s easy to see why regular dental check-ups at the dentist and good oral hygiene are significant. Understanding the importance of oral health and its connection to overall health is key.

With Shine Dental’s general dentistry services, you will be able to reach optimum dental health which is a huge investment for your overall health, both in the short and long run.
