Q: What are your teeth whitening options, cost and process?

A: We provide two teeth whitening solutions at Dendy Village Dental clinic in Brighton.

1- In-chair teeth whitening 

2- Take-home teeth whitening kits 

In-chair tooth whitening is where a dentist will whiten teeth at the dental clinic. The cost for in-chair teeth whitening can vary. For more information about our in-chair package, $750, please visit here

Take-home teeth whitening kits are an easy to use and convenient option for busy lifestyles. For more info on teeth whitening take-home kits, visit here.

Either tooth whitening option requires the patient to visit the dentist for an initial consultation before commencing tooth whitening. Note, some patients may not be eligible for whitening. Therefore, consulting with a dentist about cosmetic dentistry options is essential. 

Q: How much will a dental filling cost?

A: The cost of a dental filling procedure ranges from $170 – $345, depending on the size of the dental filling. It would be best to consult with a dentist to get a precise quote. For more info, please visit our dental filling service page.

Many procedures, such as dental fillings can only be firmly quoted once the dentist has seen how much work is involved. A big dental filling is more expensive than a little dental filling.  What we can do prior to your visit is advise a price range that covers the minimum and maximum amount you can expect to pay.  Once your Dendy Village Dental dentist has thoroughly examined your mouth the dentist will advise a firm quote before proceeding with your approval.

Q: Do you have an orthodontist? 

A: At Dendy Village Dental Brighton, we do not have an orthodontist in the clinic. However, our dentists are trained to treat various orthodontic concerns.

If you need to see an orthodontist during a consultation, the dentist can refer you to a local orthodontist.

Q: How long is the first appointment?

A: It may vary, but generally speaking the first appointment may involve a thorough examination, clean and x-rays. Our dentist will be checking the overall state of your oral health. X-rays help the dentist get a full picture or your oral health. Our on-site digital x-ray machine makes this a fast and easy procedure.

Q: Who performs my dental treatment?

A: We have a dedicated team of dentists who perform the work with support from our dental nurses.  All cleaning is carried out by dentists.

Q: Why is visiting the dentist regularly so important?

A: Regular check-ups help pick up on any issues early when they’re easier and less expensive to treat. Untreated oral health issues can have far-reaching ramifications for the rest of the body. 

Dental care is important because it:
  • Fights teeth decay
  • Helps to prevent periodontal (gum) diseases, which eventually can lead to tooth loss
  • Helps reduce bad breath. 

Q: My teeth feel fine; do I still need to see a dentist?

A: You may feel fine and think that your oral health is at no risk. But a professional dentist can detect early stage dental issues that might go unnoticed by you. Cavities, food staining, gums problems and teeth weakening are just a few such issues that can go unnoticed for quite a while. 

Q: At what age should I start taking my child to see the dentist?

A: We recommend you start taking children to the dentist when they reach 12 months old, or 6 months after their first tooth erupts. The initial dental visit is very calm and friendly. 

Q: When should I change my toothbrush?

A: It is recommended to change your toothbrush every three months or as soon as the bristles are frayed.

Q: Do you have bilingual dentists at your Brighton clinic? 

A: Yes, we do have professional bilingual dentists in our Brighton clinic who can speak Mandarin or Vietnamese in addition to English.
