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.
Gum Pain – Straightening Improved the Bite and Prevented Premature Teeth Breakdown
This patient was experiencing pain in her gums due to her teeth fitting together in a traumatic way.
By straightening everything, not only does the smile look wider and more even, we managed to improve the bite and prevent premature breakdown of her teeth!
“Trial Smile” an affordable way Preview a Major Transformation
This patient had straight teeth, but they are starting to look stained and short due to years of wear and tear.
Tasked with turning back the clock, our smile experts custom designed this transformation:
We followed the original shape of his teeth so they would still “look like him”, while restoring the length and colour for a youthful look!
What you see here is a “trial smile”. This is an affordable way to preview major transformations before committing to it.
Aren’t these some amazing looking temporary teeth?
Teeth Straightening much Wider & Confident Smile
This patient loves to smile but has always had to control it so it doesn’t show much of her teeth!
After a bit of teeth straightening, look how much wider and more confident that smile is!
Facelift using Veneers then Replaced the Missing Teeth with a Denture
This patient has spent her whole life looking after everyone else in the family.
Her daughter had a great experience with us and decided to bring her in to see what we can do!
We gave her existing teeth a facelift using veneers, then replaced the missing teeth with a denture…
Check out the difference in that smile!
Cosmetic Dentist, Implantologist, Oral Health Therapist and Master Ceramist
This patient’s daughter is a dental technician and knew what to look for in a good dentist.
Most of this patient’s teeth looked fine visually, many were actually secretly breaking down and in need of some TLC.
While we’re at it, we took the opportunity to upgrade her smile to get a more even looking result too!
It was a team effort involving our Cosmetic Dentist, Implantologist, Oral Health Therapist and Master Ceramist to make this result happen.
Fill the Gaps a whiter, brighter, more Even Looking Smile
This patient came to us wanting to fill the gaps in his teeth and have a whiter, brighter, more even looking smile.
Dr. Adam and our Denture expert Oleg had a time crunch to get his dream smile ready before he flew out to visit his family!
The look was achieved with crowns on the front teeth, and a partial denture to replace the back teeth.
How happy does he look?
Invisalign followed by Teeth Whitening & Porcelain Veneers
This patient’s teeth had worn down and chipped extensively over the years, due to his upper and lower teeth biting together in a very traumatic way.
Dr Tony knew that:
- Teeth Straightening alone would only fix the bite, but not restore the damaged teeth.
- Restoring the teeth using porcelain veneers without first fixing the bite will mean we have to be more aggressive with tooth preparations, reducing their longevity.
To turn back the clock on this patient’s teeth, we first straighten his teeth and improved the bite using Invisalign. Then improved the colour with some Teeth Whitening. Finally, we restored the broken-down teeth using 4 porcelain veneers and some tooth-coloured fillings. The results really speak for themselves!
Invisalign – Closing Gaps
This patient wanted to get rid of the gap between her upper front teeth and widen her smile slightly.
It was quick and easy work with Invisalign to get her the look she was after!
Amazing Smile for the BIG day Teeth Whitening & Porcelain Veneers
Revamp a Smile with 8 Porcelain Veneers
This patient’s teeth had been patch filled extensively in the past. It has gotten to the point where she just wants a big revamp to get it all freshened up!
Dr Tony placed 8 dental veneers to widen her smile, make the shape of her teeth less triangular and brighten it all up!
Invisalign | Porcelain Veneers | Whitening Plus Less Exposed Gum
This patient came in wanting a smile that is wider, whiter and more even looking. Bonus if we can reduce how much gums show up when she smiles.
Dr Tony achieved the results by first straightening with Invisalign, whitening all the teeth to bring up their brightness, and finished it all with 4 porcelain veneers in the upper front teeth to restore them to ideal shapes!
Denture, Implant or Porcelain Bridge? Patient Chose – Porcelain Dental Bridge
Invisalign & Correcting Cross-Bite
At first glance, this patient’s teeth aren’t too bad. What’s really happening is that may of the back teeth are crossed over in what we call a “cross-bite”. This type of bite gives a narrow looking smile and causes increased wearing down of the teeth.
To remedy this, Dr Chu corrected the cross-bite by using Invisalign to expand the upper jaw. The crooked teeth were fixed simultaneously to produce the lovely results.
Team effort – Amazing Result
This case was a real team effort! But everything came together to produce this amazing result.
This patient wanted her smile to look fuller and more youthful. To do this, we needed to widen her smile, lengthen her teeth, make the shapes and proportions more even, and brighten it all up!
First our trusty gum specialists did a gum lift to lengthen the teeth. After some whitening, Dr Tony planned out 10 porcelain restorations in collaboration with our Digital Smile Designers and Ceramists to deliver the final result.
Invisalign Treatment after 18 Months
All-On-Implants – How natural do they look?
This lovely patient has lots of things going on with his teeth. There’s gum disease, causing his teeth to become wobbly, dark gaps forming between them. There’s missing teeth, causing the remaining teeth to tilt into the gaps…then there’s a large underbite, due to his lower jaw being much longer than his upper jaw.
Due to the combined complexities in restoring his teeth, he has decided to do an all-on-implants option: replacing all his upper teeth with implant supported porcelain teeth. How natural do they look?
Invisalign – Front Teeth Were Hanging Down and Bucky
Complete the Look for Your Big Day
This patient had a very tight timeline, we had to push very hard to get this look together in time for her wedding with only 6 months to work with!
If your big day is coming up and need your smile to look as good as the rest of you, give us a call and see what we can do for you!
Teeth Straightening and Smile Widening
This patient had crooked front teeth with a traumatic bite, leading to the 2 upper front teeth wearing down unevenly, one being much shorter than the other.
Extensive Gum Disease – 2 Porcelain Dental Bridges
Broken Teeth Different Shapes & Discoloured – 6 porcelain veneers
This super nice lady had very broken-down teeth that are all different shapes and colours. Dr Tony placed 6 porcelain veneers to make it look the way she deserves.
Smile Assessment to improve Gaps and Small Teeth
This patient wanted brighter whiter teeth and did not like the gaps in his smile.
After a facially driven smile assessment with Dr Chu, we found his existing teeth were too small to suit his face. So rather than closing the gaps with Invisalign, we opted to utilise the gaps to increase the size of his teeth.
The end result was a smile that suited his face and his energetic personality!
Invisalign to improve a Narrow Smile and a Deep Bite
This patient had a narrow smile and a deep bite. Deep bite is where the upper and lower front teeth overlapped too much, greatly increasing the wear and tear of all her front teeth.
Dr Chu was able to improve on all of the above areas using Invisalign.
Developmental Markings Covered 10 Porcelain Veneers
This patient has a developmental markings on her teeth, making them look discoloured and uneven.
Dr Tony placed 10 porcelain veneers to widen the smile and cover up the discolouration!
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.

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.
