Achieve clean and healthy smile with our professional teeth cleaning services in Melbourne

Regular teeth brushing and flossing at home are essential for good oral hygiene, but sometimes even the most dedicated brushers and flossers need a little help keeping their teeth clean. That's where our professional teeth cleaning services come in.

At Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry, we use the latest technology and equipment to clean your teeth, and our team of experienced and qualified dentists is always ready to offer you the best possible service. Our services are designed to remove any unwanted build-up on your teeth, leaving you with a smile that you can be proud of.


Why Professional Teeth Cleaning?

Your teeth and gum health are important not just for your appearance but for your overall health as well. In fact, gum disease is a major factor in tooth loss, not tooth decay. Thus, poor oral hygiene can have a significant impact on your health.

This is the reason why it's so important to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, and professional teeth cleaning is one of the best ways to do this. Our services can remove built-up tartar and plaque that can lead to gum disease, as well as help prevent tooth decay.

In addition, our dental team hopes to provide you with valuable tips on how to keep your gums and teeth healthy in between visits.

What are teeth cleaning and scaling?

When most people think of teeth cleaning, they picture someone vigorously brushing their teeth with a toothbrush. While this is an important part of the process, there is more to it than that.

Teeth cleaning also involves scaling, which is the removal of plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth. Plaque is a film of bacteria that forms on the teeth, and tartar is a hardened form of plaque. Scaling helps to prevent cavities and gum disease by removing these substances from the teeth.

The process can be done manually with an ultrasonic scaler. Ultrasonic cleaning is often used in dental offices because it is more effective at removing plaque and tartar while being gentle to your gums.

How often do you need teeth cleaning and scaling?

At least once every six months, you should have your teeth cleaned and scaled by a professional dentist. Some people may need to have the procedure done more often if they have gum disease or other oral health problems.

At Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry, we use an Airflow machine to remove tartar, surface stains, and plaque from teeth. The machine uses a mixture of water, air, and fine powder particles to clean teeth quickly and effectively.

We recommend this procedure for all our patients as it is gentle yet effective in removing unwanted build-up from teeth. It is also painless and only takes a few minutes to complete.

If there's still built-up plaque and tartar on your teeth after the procedure, we may recommend a more intensive cleaning procedure such as root planing and scaling. This involves removing plaque and tartar from below the gum line to help prevent gum disease.

During the scaling procedure, you may or may not feel sensitivity. You might feel a vibration or a tickling sensation, but it should be a tolerable discomfort. This is because the scaler vibrates at ultrasonic speed like a mini jackhammer, breaking up the hardened tartar behind your teeth so it can be suctioned away.

If you do experience discomfort, let your dentist know so they can adjust the settings on the ultrasonic scaler. After the procedure, your teeth may feel smooth and clean. You might also notice that your gums are pinker and healthier-looking.

As a word of caution, avoid removing calculus or hard tartar by yourself at home or with your toothbrush. Calculus is very hard calcified deposits that can only be removed by a professional, and attempting to remove them on your own can cause damage to your teeth and gums.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Cleaning

While many people brush and floss their teeth daily, professional teeth cleanings are still important. Here are some of the benefits of getting your teeth cleaned by a professional: 

1. Removes Plaque and Tartar

You may not realise it, but plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth over time, even if you brush and floss regularly. This can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. A professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar that has accumulated on your teeth. 

2. Polishes Teeth

Professional teeth cleanings also help to polish your teeth. Built-up plaque and tartar can make your teeth look yellow and stained. A professional cleaning will remove this build-up and leave your teeth looking shiny and new. 

3. Prevents Gum Disease

Regular professional cleanings can help to prevent gum disease by removing any plaque or tartar that has built up on your teeth. The surgical or invasive procedure carries risks so as much as possible, it’s always best to prevent the disease from happening in the first place.

4. Improves Overall Oral Health

Keeping up with regular professional teeth cleanings can improve your overall oral health. This is because it helps to remove any harmful bacteria from your mouth that could cause problems down the road. 

If you haven't had professional teeth cleaning in a while, now is the time to schedule an appointment. Your mouth will thank you!

Teeth Cleaning & Scaling Treatment Process

Every professional teeth cleaning at Gorgeous Smiles Dentistry includes thorough dental check-ups and examinations. We believe that our patients should receive the best care possible. Regular dental check-up and cleaning may help you avoid time and money in the long run by avoiding problems before they begin.

1. Examine

The first step in the teeth cleaning and scaling process is to thoroughly examine the mouth for any signs of dental issues or decay. We will also check for any loose teeth or other problems. Once we have a good understanding of your oral health, we will begin the cleaning process.

2. Cleaning and Scaling

Removing the plaques and tartar from your teeth is an important part of the teeth cleaning and scaling process. We will use special tools to remove the build-up from your teeth. This may help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

3. Fluoride Treatment

To ensure you have fresh and healthy gum, a fluoride treatment may be recommended. This may help to prevent gum disease and keep your smile looking its best.

Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning is a more extensive dental cleaning that is typically recommended for people who have braces, implants, crowns, or other dental work.

This dental procedure can help to remove any plaque or bacteria that may have built up around these devices and can prevent gum disease and other oral health problems.

You can see the before and after photos here to see the amazing results that deep cleaning can provide.



Should you get your teeth professionally cleaned?
Yes. Although normal brushing and flossing your teeth at home is important, it's also necessary to have your teeth cleaned by a professional at least every six months or depending on your dentist's recommendation as each patient is different.
How does a hygienist clean your teeth?
First, the hygienist will use a small mirror to examine your teeth and gums. They will then use an ultrasonic scaler or airflow machine to remove any plaque or tartar buildup on your teeth. Finally, they will polish your teeth and apply fluoride to help prevent cavities.
Is dental scaling of teeth painful?
You may or may not experience minimal discomfort during the dental scaling process depending on how sensitive your teeth are. But overall, the procedure is not painful as you may think. If you do feel any pain, it should be mild and go away quickly.
Is scaling of teeth necessary?
A dentist will only recommend a deep cleaning procedure - scaling and root planing - if a patient has gum disease. If you have healthy gums, this procedure is not necessary.
How long do teeth scaling take?
Depending on how much tartar buildup you have on your teeth, the scaling process may take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to do one side of your mouth. If you have tartar on both the top and bottom teeth, the procedure will take longer.
How often should you do teeth scaling?
As a general rule, people who have healthy teeth and gums usually need to get a professional teeth scale and clean procedure every six months. However, if you've had gum disease in the past, your visits will be more frequent - about every 3-4 months.
Do deep teeth cleaning hurt?
Although deep teeth cleanings are uncomfortable, they shouldn't be painful. Your dentist could give you a local anesthetic in the form of either a gel or an injection so that you may experience pain-free procedure.
