I’ve always taken an interest in jobs that involve skill, design and artistry. From a young age I was also fascinated by the field of science.

When I started dentistry, I knew I’d made the right choice. I realised that it was the perfect combination of many of the things I loved.

Dentistry allows me to problem-solve and be creative with my hands. Through dentistry I get to help people in a meaningful way every day.

Dr David Treherne.

Teeth whitening

At Melbourne Dentist we have many ways to improve your smile including Porcelain veneers, dental crowns and dental implants.

However, the easiest and least invasive treatment we offer is teeth whitening, also known as bleaching. The procedures simplicity and affordability has made it extremely popular.

To predictably give you the smile that you desire, we have developed two simple and safe protocols. We’ve recently added a few extra steps to our regular process using newly developed materials that are giving us fantastic results.

Orthodontics - Straightening teeth

Orthodontics harnesses the body’s own abilities to remodel itself. Invisalign is a system that uses clear, nearly invisible aligners which gradually and gently shift your teeth into a better position. They can be removed when you eat, for special occasions, and to allow you to continue your regular daily oral hygiene routine.

The system is designed to more readily fit into a busy work, school or travel schedule. And in many cases, it requires fewer visits to the clinic than traditional braces.

Along with improved aesthetic alignment, facial profiles, breathing difficulties and teeth functional positions can also be improved.

Orthodontics can make an incredible contribution to a great smile and a lifetime of dental health.

Porcelain veneers and crowns

Melbourne dentist have embraced modern ceramic technology that allows porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns to be made very thin. This allows for incredible conservation of tooth structure while still being ultra-strong and able to improve the shape, position, colour and surface lustre of your teeth.

Our digital smile design technique will allow you to see a ‘mock-up’ of your new smile in your mouth. Only once you are completely happy with the proposed changes do we have our dental laboratory technician utilise the final design for production of your permanent porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.

Are you time poor? Why not try our virtual consult process. Just send us a selfie of your smile and we’ll return you a personalised video that answers all of your questions in the comfort of your own home.

Composite veneers (Dental bonding)

Composite veneers are an alternative to porcelain veneers. They are more cost effective and less invasive than porcelain veneers.

Instead of being produced in a dental laboratory from a model of your teeth, composite veneers are produced by placing layers of various shades of tooth coloured resin directly onto your tooth surface and then setting or “curing” the resin. Like porcelain veneers they can dramatically improve a crooked, worn or gappy smile.

Read More


Tooth Coloured Fillings

Fixing only your front 4 to 6 teeth with veneers will often result in a very narrow “bucky” smile. This effect will be made even worse if the teeth in the corners of your smile are darkened by old discoloured black silver mercury fillings. There are many options available to address this issue for you, and your choices are heavily dependent on how strong your remaining tooth structure is.

Digital Smile Design

Have you ever been curious about what your perfect smile would look like? Thinking about rejuvenating your smile, and want to make sure it meets your expectations?

Smile makeover design is no longer left to chance. By blending art and science, high-resolution digital images are used to map your ideal smile based on your facial landmarks and your chosen teeth shape, shade and form.

This then enables you to visualise and effectively ‘test-drive’ your new smile ‘mock-up’ directly in your mouth, before you commit to any treatment.

Emergency Care

We cater for the unexpected and leave spaces in our schedule to accommodate it without compromising regular patient treatment. We aim to help all people with dental pain on the day they call our practice.
We also understand and can help with the stress and anxiety that’s often at the core of long-term dental problems.

Choose from the subject headings below to learn more about what we offer.

Gum Care

Our hygienists may just offer the most valuable service in the practice. Gum disease is not only the major cause of tooth loss beyond middle age, it’s also linked to health problems such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Are you new to Melbourne Dentist? Consider our “Cleaner and Whiter Teeth” promotion where we combine your first hygiene visit with a home bleaching system to help you to meet these wonderful professionals.

Replacing teeth

Whether it’s a single tooth missing or all of them, we offer a great number of reliable and safe options to fix your problem. We’re sure to find you a removable or permanently fixed solution that will both look natural and fit in with your budget.

Dental Implants

Lost teeth don’t have to stay lost. Dental implants are reliable, safe alternatives for replacing missing teeth that more and more people are using to improve function and appearance.

Read More

Dentures

Premium appliances change the way that dentures and dental plates are seen in dentistry.

Dentistry’s ongoing technological march has also encompassed the world of dentures and now allows for the creation of Premium Appliances that allay the concerns of the past.

The functionality, look and feel of your denture doesn’t have to be compromised when manufactured with expert knowledge as a Premium Appliance.

Premium Appliances are created with ideal aesthetics in mind, combined with your own personal take on how you would like your teeth to appear. A good set of false teeth can be made to look as good as the real thing.

A small number of dental implants can even be placed in the upper or lower jaw to support an entire full denture with similar sturdiness as natural teeth.

Smile design is no longer left to chance. At Melbourne Dentist a range of digital technologies are combined with sound design principles to create stunning outcomes.

Rebuilding teeth

Discover why some teeth continuously break, and the many solutions we offer to reliably rebuild them.

Tooth coloured re-builds

A smile can be transformed simply by replacing old worn silver-black fillings. One of three techniques is usually employed to replace dental amalgam. The material and technique used is determined by the size of the defect in that exists after removing all old filling material, decay and fractures.

Composite resin (plastic) fillings

These can last a very long time if 60% of your tooth structure remains. Below this figure your tooth has lost a significant amount of its strength and rigidity. Porcelain inlays are an alternative to composite fillings and in almost all cases they offer an even more durable and beautiful solution than composite resin.

Read More

Porcelain inlays and onlays

These porcelain restorations are used when only 40% to 60% of your tooth structure remains.

They are made in a laboratory by master ceramicists and are much stronger than the plastic restorations. They require two visits but will offer you a significant improvement in appearance and longevity.

Read More

Porcelain Crowns

These are useful when less than 40% of your tooth structure remains. When only this much structure remains, there is not enough of your tooth structure to reliably hold a composite resin filling or a porcelain onlay.

A crown covers the whole tooth and acts to splint and protect it from breaking or fracturing. You get to keep the tooth for longer with less complications and very likely less cost in the long run.

Read More


Full mouth reconstructions

When many of your teeth are weakened or heavily broken down, and your whole bite system is out of balance, simple daily normal bite forces cause breakages and your need for consistent ongoing treatment. You’ll suffer persisting pain, impaired function, displeasing aesthetics and jaw joint problems. If left unattended, we usually witness the premature loss of all teeth.

The rehabilitation of a broken-down bite can be one of the most challenging procedures in dentistry. Dental implants, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, porcelain inlays and onlays, dental bridges and teeth whitening can all be used as part of the re-building process.

Full mouth rehabilitation seeks to take an overall view of your dental health, often requiring the rebuilding of every tooth. The process can be extensive, but your functional and aesthetic results can be amazing.

Read More


Root canal treatments

There are a number of ways that infection can strike the internal soft tissues of a tooth. Pain may not be the immediate result, although the acute flare up of such an infection can be one of the most painful experiences you could have.

Root canal treatment is very effective at addressing this issue and allows you to keep the tooth.

The best news is, when the appropriate modern protocols are followed, this treatment is rarely painful.

Read More

Removing teeth

Unfortunately, sometimes a tooth cannot be saved. And in some cases, you may just prefer tooth extraction over trying to re-build it.

If the remaining structure of the tooth is too compromised or the gum support remaining is limited, removal may be your best course of action.

Read More

In almost all circumstances it is best to replace the tooth that is being removed.

Tooth replacement is required to maintain function and stability. Adjacent and opposing teeth will drift into a gap left by a missing tooth. This can eventually lead to severe disruption and collapse of the bite in the area.

Read More

Wisdom teeth are commonly removed as they are mostly non-functional and can cause significant damage to surrounding teeth and gums.
