Cosmetic Dentistry in Bondi Junction
Not so long ago, the value of teeth was based solely on keeping them so we could eat the foods we love. Today, a beautiful smile plays a role in our confidence in both our personal and professional lives.
Because our teeth have a tough job to do, their comfort and appearance may change over time due to wear, ageing or because of years of drinking coffee, tea and red wine.
At Dentist in the Park, Dr Brendan Quill and our clinical team are experienced in the art and science of creating beautiful smiles. We offer a full range of cosmetic dental services in Bondi Junction, from simple procedures to complete smile makeovers, to help our patients feel great about the way they look.
Dr Quill takes great care to make sure that your smile looks natural—like you were born with it, only better!

What are some inexpensive ways to improve my smile?
One of the most common and most affordable ways to improve the look of your smile is with professional teeth whitening. You can opt for in-chair or at-home teeth whitening treatment. Both can brighten the look of your smile in a short amount of time. Patients find that professional teeth whitening provides more consistent, reliable results—without irritation or sensitivity.
What should I know about teeth whitening?
Teeth stain naturally with age and because of certain foods and beverages. With tobacco use, they darken much faster and often become yellow or brown.
We can help. At Dentist in the Park, we offer both in-house and take-home teeth bleaching in Bondi Junction to brighten stained teeth, leaving you with a much younger looking smile.
Many patients start their teeth whitening treatment in the chair where we apply professional whitening gel with the Zoom! Whitening system to jump-start the process. We make custom teeth whitening trays to continue bleaching at home.
It is always best to begin whitening your teeth after a dental cleaning at our Bondi Junction dental surgery to remove surface stains and tartar.
Will my smile look too white after professional teeth whitening?
Are you worried about a too-white smile? Since bleaching is designed to lighten or eliminate stains, you never have to worry about overly bright teeth. Professional whitening allows your natural teeth colour to shine through.
What is the difference between professional teeth whitening and whitening kits I can buy in shops and at the chemist?
If you are like many people, you might have tried one of the many teeth whitening products you can purchase in shops or at the chemist. Chances are, you have been disappointed in the results from the gels, strips and toothpastes available. Whitening your teeth professionally, under the care of a dentist, typically provides the best opportunity to achieve the best outcome possible.
One of the biggest complaints people have about over-the-counter whitening products is that there is an occurrence of gum sensitivity and irritation after use. This often happens because too much of the whitening gel touches the gums. With the professional options available at our Bondi Junction dental clinic, your safety and comfort are essential, and we can help protect you from sensitivity by covering up tender tissues.
The results from non-professional teeth whitening products are often inconsistent because they are not used properly. In addition, the whitening gel is simply not as strong as the gel your dentist uses. With professional teeth whitening, you have a much better chance of seeing more significant results.
The best way to learn more about professional teeth whitening at our Bondi Junction dental clinic is to schedule a booking for a consultation. We usually recommend that you have your teeth cleaned prior to any whitening treatment. This will help improve your results from the teeth whitening procedure.
Why should I consider orthodontics?
Planning a new smile with crooked teeth is like putting up a new fence on old posts that tilt in different directions. It's more challenging and the final results could be disappointing and may not last.
If teeth are crooked, straightening them is a great place to start. Properly aligned teeth are often healthier and more comfortable. When teeth overlap or do not bite together properly, it may limit your results and become worn more quickly.
What kind of orthodontic treatment do you offer?
We offer both Invisalign and Damon Clear as effective and more discreet ways to achieve a straight smile. Both of these orthodontic options at our Bondi Junction dental clinic use clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are swapped out for a new set every two weeks or so. Over time, the aligners gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
Clear braces are a great way for older teens and adults to straighten their teeth without the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces.
What are tooth-coloured restorations?
Old amalgam fillings or metal-based crowns can leave a shadow on your teeth. At our Bondi Junction dental clinic, Dr Quill offers durable and natural-looking tooth-coloured restorations that blend in seamlessly.
We welcome you to arrange an appointment to discuss the many benefits of dentistry’s modern, tooth-coloured options.
What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain designed to cover the front of the teeth. They can lengthen, reshape, brighten and even cover slightly crooked teeth for a more uniform and natural appearance.
What Bondi Junction patients love most about porcelain veneers is that they can dramatically change the way the smile looks in a short amount of time. In as little as two dental appointments, your smile can go from drab to dazzling.
Am I a good candidate for veneers?
Patients with worn teeth, gaps, or who have dark teeth that do not respond well to teeth bleaching often choose porcelain veneers for a more uniform look.
The best way to find out if porcelain veneers might be right for your is to schedule a consult with Dr Quill at our Bondi Junction dental clinic.
What should I do if I am ready to get started?
We welcome your call to our Bondi Junction dental clinic. Dr Brendan Quill looks forward to learning about your goals for your smile and to discussing all of your options with you. We look forward to welcoming you, so call our office.
