Cosmetic Dentistry

Not everyone is happy with their smile or how their teeth look. This can have a major impact when it comes to interacting and socialising with others.

Cosmetic dentistry is a field within general dentistry that focuses on the beauty of a smile and covers treatments that enhance, align, and whiten or tone the teeth for a more attractive appearance. This includes treatments such as porcelain veneers, white fillings, teeth whitening, orthodontics, clear braces and dental implants.

These treatments involve special techniques, equipment and a high level of skill from the dental team. We are proud to offer these to our patients here at the practice and have seen many a smile transformed under our roof.

If you are embarrassed by your teeth it's best to speak to your Coorparoo dentist, who can tell you more about the options available in a non-judgemental and empathetic environment and provide you with information about how these can affect your lifestyle while you are undergoing treatment.

Don't hide your smile; allow us to bring out its natural beauty.

Routine Dentistry

Routine dental appointments are essential to maintain good oral health and a happy smile. A standard dental check-up is carried out by an experienced, qualified dentist in Coorparoo and is the best way to spot any problems with your mouth before they become serious.

A family dentist in Coorparoo is ideal for those with children because the child may be more reassured seeing the same dentist as their parents. Both adults and children require routine dental appointments on a regular basis because preventative dentistry is the key to keeping your mouth healthy.

Routine dental appointments are usually carried out every six months, but the number of times you need to attend these appointments varies from patient to patient.

Some patients may require more frequent visits, while others may need to come into the practice less often – your dentist in Coorparoo will advise you on how often you need to visit.

If you've been searching for your Coorparoo Family Dental Practice look no further, Brisbane Laser Dentist are happy to welcome you and your family.

Dr Rui Gao
Dr Rui Gao

University of Queensland

Rui (Ree) has wanted to be a dentist for as long as she remembers. In 2006 she graduated as a dentist at the University of Queensland. With over 10 years of experience, Rui is a caring, dedicated and compassionate dentist. She doesn't believe anything is complicated; there is always a simple solution.

Rui enjoys all aspects of dentistry, particularly restorative and cosmetic dentistry. With the knowledge that poor oral health can affect a person's general health, preventative dentistry is an integral part of her practice; we all know the old saying 'prevention is better than cure'.

Rui has recently completed a 2 year orthodontic course to gain more understanding in teeth movements. Having 2 young children, she wanted more knowledge in identifying malocclusions (incorrect bites/positions) and when it is appropriate for early interceptive treatments. Rui's goal for the future is furthering her education on children's dentistry, airway health and cosmetic dentistry. She is currently working on obtaining her LA&HA Masters in Laser Dentistry.

When she is not a dentist, Rui is running around after her young primary school children. Being a mother is definitely harder than being a dentist.

Rui speaks Mandarin and is laser accredited.

Onsite parking available. Call (07) 3397 1216 for details.
