How cosmetic dentistry can change your life

Did you know that it has been scientifically proven that the more you smile the happier you are?

Everyone looks beautiful when they smile, and a bright smile gives a person confidence which in turn affects all other aspects of their life.

But what about those of us who aren’t confident about their smile? Anyone with missing, stained or crooked teeth will know the struggle.

That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in.

What is the difference between regular and cosmetic dentistry?

Normal dentistry is concerned with a patient’s oral the health. It looks after things like cavities, fillings, root canals and gum disease.

Cosmetic dentistry is more about how your teeth look, and focuses attention on things like tooth whitening, straightening and replacing bad or broken teeth with veneers.

Cosmetic dentistry is similar to appearance medicine. You might undergo a cosmetic dentistry procedure for the same reasons you might have a course of Botox, a facelift, or even something as simple as changing your hairstyle.

Whatever makes you feel more confident in yourself.

How can cosmetic dentistry change your life?

A bright, beautiful smile can give you confidence you never knew was possible. Everything from relationships to careers can improve through greater self-esteem.

Whether it’s asking someone out on a date, going for a job interview, or simply having your photograph taken, being happy to show your teeth is sure to make your day more relaxed.

Lacking in self-confidence when it comes to your teeth can have disastrous effects on your social life. When your friends are getting together in public you may not want to join them. Going out and meeting new people is daunting, and for those who are single, meeting that special someone seems like mission impossible.

All that can change with cosmetic dentistry. It can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of, allowing you to completely embrace a full and active social-life.

Many people find their career improves after having their teeth fixed. Part of it is the self-confidence a new smile brings, but it’s also to do with how others perceive you. Sending out a positive vibe, allows others to see you in a positive light, resulting in better job interviews or moving up in your career.

Cosmetic dentistry options at SDAI

Here at Sydney Dental Aesthetics and Implants, we have a range of options which cover all cosmetic dentistry options.

Rapid Smiles

Our Rapid Smiles Express treatment is the latest innovation in cosmetic dentistry. It offers a safe, minimally invasive, and much faster alternative to traditional braces. Using state-of-the-art orthodontic braces, Rapid Smiles Express can straighten your misaligned or crooked teeth in as little as 10-12 weeks!


Porcelain veneers are a practical and simple solution to solve a variety of mouth issues. Crooked or chipped teeth, discoloured or unnatural looking teeth, or teeth which can’t be saved can all be replaced. Porcelain veneers look natural and are stain resistant, allowing you to enjoy tea, coffee, and wine without worrying.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatments are one of the easiest and immediately effective treatments in cosmetic dentistry. A cleaner, whiter smile freshens your overall look and gives you an added boost in confidence. You won’t want to stop smiling!


With our CEREC teeth milling system in house, we can treat damaged or broken teeth with a minimal time commitment. In the past, restorations and crowns were a long, painful process many people avoided due to the cost and time involved. Today, everything can be done within a couple of hours, with fewer injections and drilling.


While lasers were originally focused primarily on the treatment of gum disease, other beneficial applications in holistic dentistry and cosmetic dentistry have emerged. Dental laser technology has changed root canal therapy for example, with significantly reduced healing times and a higher success rate.

Full Face Orthodontics

Full-face orthodontics aims to make your mouth, jaw, muscles and related structures all work in harmony – without the need to remove your natural teeth. Full-face orthodontic appliances include expansion devices that widen narrow jaws and devices that move bone, strengthen the jaw muscles, and guide growth.
