First impressions by one person of another are often the most important and can be critical in establishing relationships or in business success. Research has shown that when we first meet one another, there is a subconscious way that our brains and eyes interact with the other person. Your eyes scan from their eyes, to their nose and then their mouth. From there, the scan for most of us opens to the rest of the face and then the person. If you have stained teeth, large chips, or missing front teeth, they will be held in the viewer's memory and used to create that all important first impression.
Large metallic fillings can discolour and stain the surrounding tooth structures. Crooked teeth immediately stand out from the rest. Missing teeth and poorly designed crowns can create black areas in your mouth and some of the cheaper crowns can lead to ugly black lines around the gum margins
A beautiful smile is not only the teeth but is also affected by how the teeth are framed by the lips. Flat, collapsed lips, wrinkles, grooves around the mouth and nose, can detract from the smile. We term the treatment of the tissues framing the mouth as facial cosmetics.
Dr Kathleen Sandberg
is highly experienced in treating these detracting defects by the use of fillers and in some cases Botox.
She is literally able to wind back the years to those full , wrinkle-free lips of your youth.
Giving you back your smile and confidence
At Blockhouse Bay Dental Centre we use a variety of modern techniques to help give you back your smile and the confidence it brings. Existing silver or black fillings can be removed and replaced with natural "tooth-coloured" materials. Broken down teeth can be restored with "tooth-coloured" polymers that are bonded into position. Missing teeth can be replaced with bridges.
Chances are most of the models you see in the glossy magazines owe their smile to the amazing techniques of cosmetic dentistry. You too can have the perfect smile.
Are you unhappy with your smile but don’t know where to start? Do you want to change your smile to improve the colour, shape or length of your teeth? Or change the appearance of your gums or lips to give your overall smile a more appealing look? Blockhouse Bay Dental Centre will likely have a range of techniques to suit your needs and budget.
