Smile Gallery - Cosmetic Dentistry
SMILE. It’s the KEY that fits the lock on everyone’s hearts.
People often put up with “smiles” they’re not happy with because they THINK the condition of their teeth are beyond saving.
Some have been to dentists where they’ve been TOLD there’s not much they can do.
In many of these cases, we have been able to provide customised solutions to suit their smile goals and their budget!
Let our results do the talking, here are some of the exciting transformations we have created.
Teeth Whitening followed by 2 Porcelain Veneers
This patient had sensitive front teeth for the longest time. They had weak enamel and kept breaking. She started had the white fillings on those teeth replaced many many times over the past few years.
- Wider to close the gaps
- Much stronger and longer lasting!
Isn’t it amazing how small details can make so much difference!
Porcelain Veneers, Crowns and Bridges
This patient drove almost 2 hours to come visit us, as she couldn’t find a cosmetic dentist she trusted closer to home.
There’s broken teeth, missing teeth, and some other challenges to deal with.
It was also really important to the patient that the result was similar in length to the original, and have a colour which looked natural.
Dr Tony started with 3D digital smile design, replicated the designs on the patient’s teeth, so she could “test drive” them in real life, refined it with feedback that was given, and finally used the refined design as a guide to produce porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges for the result below.
Now there’s no more missing teeth…the smile is wider, fuller and more confident!
Orthodontics – Invisalign
One common misconception is that Invisalign is somehow slower than braces. Let us assure you this is absolutely NOT true!
For this patient, Dr Jemma used Invisalign to:
- Straighten out all the teeth
- Optimised the movements to allow reshaping of teeth at the end of treatment
- Reshaped the teeth quickly and painlessly to give a much nicer aesthetic result
- We will be doing some whitening to top it all off!
…all this in barely 12 months!!!
Combination of Porcelain Veneers, Dental Crowns & Bridges
This patient came in wanting better looking teeth. He had lots of back teeth removed due to decay and breakage, causing all the remaining teeth to take on too much pressure and also break down.
How’s this for a major transformation?
Invisalign – Less Gums Showing and Widening the Jaw
Using Invisalign, Dr Chu managed to improve this smile by straightening up the teeth to make them appear more even; have less gums showing; and widening the jaw to give a bigger, fuller smile!
Straighten Teen Teeth with Invisalign.
This teenager wanted to straighten their teeth with Invisalign, because she didn’t want to deal with food getting stuck around braces.
Before coming to us, they were told by a few other dentists that Invisalign isn’t going to work for their case.
It wasn’t an easy Invisalign treatment, but over the course of 18 months, Dr Tony managed to deliver this smile transformation!
Combination of 6 Porcelain Crowns, Bridge and Veneers.
This patient is an successful professional who had recently gotten some “composite bonding” done elsewhere but wasn’t at all happy with the result.
The goal was to get even looking teeth, in colour, shape and size, then widen the originally triangular shaped teeth to make the smile bigger and more confident.
After a thorough discussion and smile design, Dr Chu and Dr Tony delivered a combination of 6 porcelain crowns, bridge and veneers to produce these results.
Invisalign – Narrow Smile, Crowded Teeth and High Canine Tooth.
This patient is an aspiring young dancer who performs both in Australia and internationally.
To fix the narrow smile, crowded teeth and the canine tooth which is sitting too high, we opted for Invisalign. This allowed us to get the treatment done discreetly, without affecting any dance performances!
Dr Chu achieved this fantastic result in less than 2 years.
Top Full Denture.
Some transformations are life changing. This patient never smiled. They never liked their teeth…never liked the dentist either, so everything slowly deteriorated.
When finally enough was enough, there wasn’t enough top teeth left to save.
Fortunately, this patient liked Dr Tony enough to let us help them out!
At this point, we were really looking at a full mouth implant supported option or a full denture.
This patient opted for a top full denture, beautifully crafted by our Denture Expert Oleg.
What a change it has made!
Porelain Veneers – Shape and Colour.
This patient didn’t like the shape and colour of her teeth, but didn’t have much time before her wedding.
Dr Chu went over all the options, and together we decided that porcelain veneers were the best option to significantly improve her smile given the tight time line.
Now that’s a smile she deserve for the big day!
Invisalign – Teeth Straightening and Alignment.
When we look at putting together a new smile, it’s not just about straight teeth or following numbers on a text book.
We understand that different smile designs suit different personalities, different faces and different ethnicity, one size fits all is a thinking only fit for history books.
Using Invisalign, not only did Dr Chu make the teeth straighter, she also made the back teeth more visible.
This makes the smile appear bigger, fuller and more confident!
Upper Arch with 8 porcelain veneers.
This patient had very worn and broken down teeth due to severe teeth grinding and a bad bite.
He was also unhappy with how yellow his teeth were and really wanted a significant change.
Porcelain Crowns, Dental Veneers and Fillings.
This patient was missing many teeth, what was left was broken down and stopped her from smiling.
In this case, the patient chose not to replace the middle left side tooth, that’s why it still has a dark outline, despite the filling used to cover the dark discoloured area.
Porcelain Veneers improve Colour, Shape and Size of Teeth.
This patient has always been unhappy with the colour, shape and size of her teeth.
After smashing a front tooth falling down the stairs, she decided to take this as an opportunity to give everything a lift.
Dr Tony placed some porcelain veneers crafted by our ceramist Nick, she’s now smiling more brilliantly than ever!
4 Porcelain Veneers Improve Upper Front Teeth.
This patient wasn’t happy with her smaller teeth next to the middle ones, she also didn’t want to go through the process of braces.
Dr Chu upgraded this smile with 4 porcelain veneers on her upper front teeth.
Replace Front Teeth Old Fillings Colour Matched White Fillings.
This patient recently had her 2 top front teeth “fixed” at another dental practice, but wasn’t too happy with the results.
They looked dark, and the rough edges picked up lots of yellow stains and plaque.
We removed the “old” fillings, placed new and properly colour matched white fillings. Then polished it to perfection so it blends in seamlessly.
Now she can smile confidently again!
Invisalign 5 MONTHS of treatment!
This patient was told somewhere else that Invisalign wouldn’t work for him, because he had too much crowding.
Dr Chu started Invisalign treatment for him, check out the progress with only 5 MONTHS of treatment!
At this point he is just under halfway through his Invisalign and we will continue on to get everything spot on.
Kids Orthodontics – Cross Bite and Narrow Top Jaw
This 8 year old has something called a “cross bite”, it’s when the top jaw is too narrow, causing the bite to be uneven.
Narrow jaw will result in crowded and crooked teeth, increased teeth wear and premature tooth loss.
Dr Tony did some preventative orthodontic work to grow his top jaw, making it wider. It was all done in 3 months!
Now there’s a very good chance his teeth will naturally grow to be fairly straight, likely avoiding braces later on.
