While every dentist is a health professional, some dentists are more interested, knowledgeable, experienced and artistic when it comes to cosmetic dentistry.  More complex issues will definitely require a greater degree of expertise. The more extensive the work, the greater the skill level that will be required. Like everything we buy, there is a lot of variation in the quality and price.  Everyone loves a bargain but will it get you what you want? Creating beautiful natural smiles requires a great deal of time, knowledge of dental materials, artistry and skill.  Depending upon your needs and the combined skill of your cosmetic dentistry team, the level of artistry achieved will invariably be reflected in the price.

People often start by talking to others who have come to our clinic and had a great experience with cosmetic dentistry. As you research, it’s important to check out examples of the cosmetic dentist’s work. Be aware that commercially produced before-and-after examples do exist, so it’s important to verify that the photos you are seeing are actual patients of the cosmetic dentist.
Keep in mind that cosmetic dentistry is different than other dental specialties (orthodontics or oral surgery for example) in that there are no criteria dentists must meet or exams they must pass to be able to call themselves a cosmetic dentist; any dentist who wants to can adopt the title. However, there are organizations that accredit (certify) dentists in cosmetic dentistry and the process is quite rigorous.

Simple ways to improve your smile…

  1. The first way to improve your teeth and mouth is to have fantastic oral hygiene. All teeth and mouths are ‘nice’ if super clean as this guarantees a healthy mouth and fresh clean breath. Nothing worse than standing back from bad breath and its embarrassing to mention it except to a partner or close family.
  2. Have a thorough technique to make sure you brush well at the back and insides ( people miss here) because it take more time than the fronts – you must overlap the gums and if they bleed then just continue and get your dental appointment booked . A medium small headed brush is the way to go so you can reach everywhere easily.
  3. Clean daily between your teeth with interprox brushes . If you have hardly any gap then you can use floss. Kids and some lucky people can miss this out but most need it as nasty bacteria grow in these awkward places and they cause gum disease and bad breath.
  4. Get any hole filled as these are natural stagnation areas for bad bacteria.
  5. Get discoloured teeth whitened – this is a great treatment for fresh smile confidence.
  6. Chipped, uneven, and shabby front teeth can be contoured or fixed with minimal preparation not requiring injections. The result a rejuvenated smile that stands the test of time.
  7. And …cut out sugary drinks and excessive sweeties… goes without saying as these are also bad for your general health as well as causing cavities.
