Cosmetic Dental Treatment in Sydney

Confidence Boosting Cosmetic Treatments

Cosmetic dentistry is a field growing in popularity, and new technological advances allow for more detailed and specialised approaches to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. As part of these advancements, cosmetic dental treatments are also taking less time, with many only requiring one appointment to complete.

If you’ve previously dismissed cosmetic dentistry as being too involved, unsuitable for you, or ‘scary’, you’d be surprised at what’s now possible. Our team prides itself on providing compassionate and gentle care tailored to each patient — and if you’re squeamish about dentists, we can talk you through our procedures and help make your experience as stress-free and relaxed as possible!

Is your smile holding you back?

Realistically, appearances matter. Whether it’s for your own peace of mind, in a professional setting, or even in photographs for a special occasion or major event, the way your teeth look plays a huge role in your self-esteem. If you don’t feel great about your smile, it can dramatically impact your confidence, outgoingness, and even how others perceive you. This might be a sign that it may be time to visit a cosmetic dentist in Sydney.

At About Smiles, we believe everyone deserves to feel great about their teeth, so they can smile confidently. Our mission is to achieve that through the services we provide at our dental clinic.

A bright and healthy smile not only boosts confidence but also plays a significant role in maintaining overall oral health. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of your teeth, gums and bite, helping you achieve the smile of your dreams.

How do you know that you need to visit a cosmetic dentist in Sydney?

While some people seek the services of a cosmetic dentist for aesthetic reasons, others may require it to address functional issues that affect their oral health and well-being. Cosmetic adjustments like veneers or invisible braces can correct years of misalignments that could have caused problems such as jaw pain or crooked smiles.

Here are some signs that indicate you might need the professional advice of a cosmetic dentist in Sydney:

Discoloured or Stained Teeth

Over time, our teeth can become discoloured due to ageing, certain medications, smoking or consuming stain-causing foods and beverages.

Teeth whitening procedures offered by cosmetic dentists can effectively brighten your smile, removing years of staining and giving you a more youthful appearance.

Chipped or Cracked Teeth

Accidents, injuries or biting down on hard objects can lead to chipped or cracked teeth. Not only can these issues be aesthetically displeasing, but they can also cause discomfort and increase the risk of further damage.

Your cosmetic dentist can employ techniques like dental bonding or porcelain veneers to repair and restore the appearance of damaged teeth effectively, improving both aesthetics and functionality.

Crooked or Misaligned Teeth

Crooked or misaligned teeth not only affect the aesthetics of your smile but can also lead to oral health issues such as difficulty in cleaning, increased risk of cavities and jaw pain.

Cosmetic dentistry options like braces or clear aligners (e.g., Invisalign) can gradually straighten your teeth, providing you with a well-aligned and more harmonious smile.

Gaps Between Teeth

Gaps or spaces between teeth can result from various factors, such as missing teeth, genetics or habits like thumb sucking. These gaps can impact your confidence and speech, as well as contribute to other dental problems.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments like dental implants, bridges or orthodontic solutions can help close these gaps, giving you a more even and appealing smile.

Worn Down Teeth

Teeth grinding (bruxism) or habits like nail biting can lead to the excessive wear of teeth, making them appear shorter and uneven. This can cause sensitivity and other dental complications.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures like dental crowns or veneers can restore the length and shape of worn-down teeth, improving appearance and functionality.

Receding Gums

Gum recession, often caused by gum disease or aggressive brushing, can expose the tooth roots and lead to sensitivity and aesthetic concerns.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments like gum grafting can help restore receded gums, protecting the roots and enhancing the appearance of your smile.

Ageing Smile

As we age, our smile may lose its youthful vigour due to factors like enamel wear, tooth discolouration, and gum recession.

Cosmetic dentistry offers various anti-aging treatments like porcelain veneers, dental bonding and gum contouring to reverse the signs of ageing, helping you maintain a vibrant and youthful smile.

Our cosmetic dentistry options

Our impressive clinics are staffed by highly qualified dental professionals and equipped with the latest technology, so we can provide thorough and considerate care to clients in all our procedures. Our cosmetic dentistry procedures include the following:

Professional teeth whitening

No one’s teeth are pure white, but over time, lifestyle factors, dental health and age can affect the brightness of your smile. If you smoke, drink tea, coffee or red wine, or even if you do none of these things, teeth can become brown and dull over time. Professional teeth whitening is a great option if you have good dental health but want to smile with total confidence.

Unlike at-home teeth whitening kits, professional teeth whitening by a cosmetic dentist can produce highly effective results after just one session. Our experienced team will also use a detailed assessment of your oral health to ensure you’re a good candidate for this cosmetic dental treatment before carefully treating any discolouration.

What makes someone a good candidate for teeth whitening?

If you want to upgrade your smile, you may be a good candidate for teeth whitening if you meet the below criteria:

  • You have good overall teeth health
  • You don’t have obvious teeth restorations or caps
  • You have healthy gums
  • You don’t have very sensitive teeth
  • You are older than 16 years of age

Cosmetic veneers

Less invasive and complex than dental implants, cosmetic veneers are crafted from porcelain or a resin composite and fit over your teeth with minimal adjustments. At About Smiles, we use the latest digital scanning technology to create an accurate map of your unique bite pattern, crafting veneers that will fit seamlessly into your mouth and can be cared for just like natural teeth.

Composite resin veneers can be fitted in just one appointment. In contrast, porcelain veneers are fitted to your teeth over three appointments, providing a lasting and attractive cosmetic solution to damaged, chipped or ‘stubby’ teeth.

Who is a good candidate for cosmetic veneers?

Veneers are a great long-term cosmetic treatment for patients who:

  • Have minor structural dental issues like misalignment
  • Have good gum health
  • Are hesitant about smiling because of cracks, discolouration or gaps in their teeth
  • Want to feel more confident and find a permanent solution for a more white and even smile

Invisible braces

Maybe you didn’t get orthodontic treatment as a child, or your smile has become more crooked after having your wisdom teeth removed. Whatever the reason may be, many adults find themselves with crooked, overcrowded or otherwise misaligned teeth that affect their confidence and the functionality of their bite. Enter invisible braces. By using a series of custom-made, clear aligners crafted from detailed scans of your teeth, invisible braces subtly shift the position of your teeth to make your smiler straighter, without the need for unsightly metal brackets or other visible orthodontics.

At About Smiles, we use Invisalign and ClearCorrect invisible braces technology to offer our patients a seamless path to a better smile. The realignment of your teeth is gradual and subtle, so you can treat your teeth while still appearing professional and maintaining a beautiful smile throughout the process.

Who is a good candidate for invisible braces?

You may find invisible braces are a good option for you if:

  • You have overcrowded or gappy teeth
  • You have misaligned teeth, or your teeth have shifted over time
  • You have good overall dental and gum health
  • You feel self-conscious about your teeth and don’t want to draw attention to treatment
