Meet Dr. Roshanak Amrein
Dr Roshanak Amrein has been the principal dentist at Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry for the past nineteen years. Dr Amrein graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from the University of Adelaide Dental School in 2000 and has since gone on to gain an additional Graduate Certificate in Clinical Dentistry in 2005.
Since taking over the practice in 2007, Roshanak has developed a focus and dedication to creating beautiful, healthy smiles. She has been a metal (amalgam) free dentist for many years and believes in doing the most minimally invasive treatments to obtain effective results.
Dr Amrein has developed a strong reputation for creating ‘smile make-overs’ that are deceptively subtle, and despite the often dramatic change in the patient's appearance, they look and feel natural.
The key to achieving an optimal cosmetic dental outcome is your involvement in the decision-making process, which Roshanak and her team do at each step of the consultative process.
Rosh’s commitment to continuing and professional education, as well as her investment in cutting-edge technologies, ensure that you benefit from the very latest advances in dental technology.

We use the best and latest technology
Waterlase is an advance technology used to provide laser dentistry. Laser dentistry is becoming a lot more prevalent in the modern dental practices and has revolutionised treatment options available. Lasers have many theraputic properties including desensitisation, disinfection and coagulation. This means laser dentistry has made it possible to have less need for numbing, more comfortable procedures, less bleeding and less inflammation. In practical terms, after a gum lift procedure, for example, patients can go back to their normal routine straight after their treatment with no packs or sutures needed.
At our practice we have used lasers for over a decade and this particular laser since 2007 with application to most cases that we treat. We use this state of the art technology for many procedures including gum lifts, gum cleaning and treatment of sensitive teeth. Soft and hard tissue surgery can be done with lasers with no need for cutting and suturing.
Waterlase is a YSGG hard tissue laser that is used widely around the world. At Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry we use this laser on patients with gum disease and in some cases get astonishing results. Waterlase laser is also a favourite for treatment of sensitive teeth providing instant results in most cases. However we primarily use the laser for the correction of “gummy smiles” or irregular gum lines prior to placement of crowns and veneers. Please visit out gallery to see examples of these procedures and if you like to know more about laser dentistry call us. We will do our best to answer your questions.
CEREC Single visit Ceramic Crowns and Inlays
CEREC is an amazing German technology which allows us to replace your unsightly large silver fillings with beautiful ceramic crowns or inlays in a single visit. Upon removal of the old filling, a digital impression of the cavity is taken using the latest CEREC software. The CEREC computer then designs the ceramic crown or inlay and using wireless communications sends the design to a milling chamber located in the next room. The milling chamber cuts a high-quality porcelain block to the precise fit of the cavity in your tooth. Before long your tooth will have a beautiful ceramic crown or inlay and will be almost as good as new.
The beauty of ceramic crowns and inlays done by CEREC is not only their very accurate fit but also CEREC’s unique ability to leave alone any part of the tooth that is still healthy. This means the approach to dentistry can be changed to a “minimally invasive” one. Natural tooth structure is very precious and needs to be saved as much as possible.
Cerec design allows us to do that and to minimise future complications with teeth. Another very impressive aspect of this technology is the aesthetic outcomes. Often it is hard to see which tooth is the CEREC ceramic crown or inlay.
Smartbleach Tooth Whitening
Tooth Whitening procedures vary greatly. In our practice we use a state of the art laser equipment called Smartbleach for tooth whitening. This laser can only be operated by a qualified dentist. So the dentist (not the nurse, or hygienist or beautician) will be performing the treatment. This gives a high degree of assurance to many patients as they know they are in safe hands. The teeth need to be thoroughly assessed to see if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment and other options can be discussed. This can be done in a separate appointment and we do offer a free 10 minute consult for this purpose.
The procedure itself takes one hour during which the teeth are washed and isolated, individually covered with the whitening gel and then lasered one tooth at a time for 30 seconds each application. This gives us a high degree of control over the procedure.The laser beam is a very small beam allowing us to target teeth that are slightly darker.
With any whitening procedure slight sensitivity can occur. This is rare in the case of Smartbleach but it can occasionally happen. If it does we gently direct the laser to another tooth and come back to the sensitive tooth later. Since the dentist is performing the procedure this can be assessed and dealt with in a safe and efficient way.
Tooth whitening results with Smartbleach are instant. The degree of lightening effect depends on the quality of the teeth. We can do a estimated prediction of shade in your consultation appointment. For more information send us an email or call us on 82131821
Digital X-Rays are a must in our modern dental practice.
Digital X-Rays, also known radiographs, require much lower exposure times to radiation as well as displaying your X-Ray’s instantly on-screen.
Why is this important?
Dentists use radiographs for many reasons, these include finding hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities.
It is possible for both tooth decay and periodontal disease to be missed during a clinical exam, and radiographic evaluation of the dental and periodontal tissues is a critical segment of the comprehensive oral examination.
Apart from cutting the time that you are in the dental chair, seeing your x-ray is a powerful educational tool. If there are cavities or bone recession due to gum disease you can see it yourself and be motivated to take preventative action. The treating dentist can then see clearly what procedure needs to be done and what possible risks are involved.
Case Study 1: Smile Makeover
Case Study 2: Smile Makeover
A small gum lift was performed on the smaller teeth as well to make their size more harmonious with the larger ones.
Case Study 3: Smile Makeover
After the final treatment plan was formulated, porcelain crowns and veneers were placed on teeth to restore them to a better anatomy and aesthetics.
