See for yourself with these porcelain veneers before and after pictures.

Client Concern

A model, social influencer and Entrepreneur of @keepitcleaner @sodashdes and many more. Steph would like her smile improved while keeping the veneers extremely discreet. Main concerns: movement of teeth after braces and the colour of the teeth.

Dentist Diagnosis

Relapse of upper front teeth. Teeth proportions are square and should be made slightly longer and slimmer. Shade of teeth.

Treatment

Smile Design. 10 upper porcelain veneers. To create better proportioned and positioned teeth that further enhance her appearance while remaining highly aesthetic and discreet.

Client Concern

Krisela came to us with concerns of her gummy smile, the shape and colour of her front teeth and the gaps between these teeth. She has had invisalign treatment in the past and confessed to us that she was not being committed to the process. Would like a quick fix to the issue.

Dentist Diagnosis

Increased gum display over front 4 teeth. Teeth proportions are squarish and should be slightly longer and slimmer. Fix alignment and gaps between teeth. Shade of teeth.

Treatment

Smile design. Teeth whitening. Gum reshaping. Six porcelain veneers. When doing a smaller number of veneers, it is very important that the veneers are created in such a way that they appear seamless against the backdrop of the natural teeth.

Client Concern

After decades of feeling embarrassed to smile and visiting other dentists who basically kept ‘patching’ her teeth up, Brea came to us desperate for help. She wanted a bright but natural smile that maintains her identity with a smaller gap between the front two teeth. She felt her teeth let her down and was committed to doing everything it takes to get a stunning result.

Dentist Diagnosis

Severely compromised dentition which has resulted in a smile that is not just aged way beyond her age, but also at risk of being lost due to poor health. Poor health of gum and teeth due to gum disease, decay in multiple teeth/ existing fillings. Poor alignment of teeth. Shape and shade of teeth.

Treatment

There were many facets to getting this smile right. Using the overarching principles of HEALTH before ALIGNMENT before VENEERS, we first got the gum and teeth into good health by gum therapy and removal of existing fillings/resin bondings where necessary. Once the health was stabilised, Brea underwent three months of Invisalign treatment to help realign her teeth into the perfect positions to then receive 10 upper and 6 lower porcelain veneers. We encourage individuality and purposely left a smaller gap between the front two teeth that makes her smile unique to her.

Client Concern

Carly is a beautiful young lady from the Mornington Peninsula area who has felt embarrassed to smile for more than 20 years. Her main concerns were that the side ‘eye teeth’ were discolored and have been progressively getting loose. She had not sought treatment prior as she had dental phobia due to previous experiences. She wanted a naturally beautiful smile that she could be proud of.

Dentist Diagnosis

2 deciduous ‘baby’ canines that were loose, discoloured and would have to be removed and replaced. Teeth shapes. Narrow smile. Resin bonding on the front two teeth unsatisfactory. Worn teeth. Upper and lower teeth alignment issues.

Treatment

Smile design. Invisalign upper and lower teeth over six months to correct the alignment of her upper and lower teeth. Teeth whitening. Gum reshaping. 10 porcelain veneers and bridges. Total treatment time was approximately seven months in total

Client Concern

This very sweet client Chloe came in with her mum wanting a natural looking smile. She felt that she showed too much gums and her teeth appeared short - some more than the others, and did not like the shapes of the teeth. She has had very limited success with resin bonding done elsewhere and was looking for more permanent options.

Dentist Diagnosis

Adequate broadness posteriorly. Gummy smile. Unsatisfactory resin bonding. Square shaped teeth that could be better proportioned. Shade of teeth.

Treatment

Smile Design. Gum reshaping and 10 porcelain veneers. Notice how we balanced as many factors as possible to create a harmony between her smile and her face - the smile needs to suit the face and vice versa. And this is where getting the smile design right is key. Total treatment time: One month

Client Concern

Sarah is such an easygoing client, who came to us having recently completed two porcelain veneers on her front two teeth and she was unhappy with the way they looked. They were overly bulky and made her front two teeth ‘bucky’. The veneers look dense and heavy within the smile. She wanted us to replace these veneers with new ones that ‘fitted’ into her smile.

Dentist Diagnosis

Two porcelain veneers that were aesthetically unsatisfactory. Front two teeth under the veneers are too far forward and would need to be set back with Invisalign prior to new veneers .Otherwise too much tooth would need to be removed to fit the front two teeth within the smile. The unaesthetic outcome is because this is an orthodontic issue that was not corrected prior to veneer placement.

Treatment

Smile redesign. Invisalign treatment for three months to set back the front two teeth. Teeth whitening. Removal of two porcelain veneers, replaced with four porcelain veneers to create a more balanced smile between the anterior and posterior sections. Our goal whenever we do any smile makeover is to create no seams between what is done and the surroundings. Total treatment time: 4 months

Client Concern

An LA based Actress and Model. She was concerned about her ‘Gummy smile’ and noticed she was not showing much teeth when smiling. Would like a bigger brighter smile that fits for television.

Dentist Diagnosis

A beautiful smile frame within which the teeth display is poor with only 4 teeth displayed when smiling. Excessive gum display which increases posteriorly. “Reverse’ smile’. Teeth excessively covered by the lower lip. Buccal corridor is deficient. Teeth shape/size suits facial profile. Shade of teeth to be improved.

Treatment

Smile Design. Crown lengthening / gum repositioning to correct ‘gummy smile’ followed by 10 upper porcelain veneers. The aim here was to reposition the teeth ‘up in the smile. It gives the appearance that the teeth are properly positioned in the face and not disappearing in the smile frame. 5 day turnaround to fit in with international travel schedules.

Client Concern

Client was concerned about her ‘Bunny teeth’ and the colour of her teeth.

Dentist Diagnosis

Front two incisors dominating the smile. Wear of teeth. Narrow smile. Teeth shade. These result in a tired smile that is not in harmony with the face.

Treatment

Smile Design. 10 upper porcelain veneers designed and positioned perfectly to re-establish youthfulness. We established the youthful appearance primarily by creating better proportioned teeth, widening the smile and improving the shade. Many say that your teeth should not be brighter than the whites of your eyes. But not in all cases in my opinion. In this case, we went a lot brighter and it worked well.

Client Concern

24 year old businessman / entrepreneur. Client was concerned about his short and uneven teeth. Canine was too ‘pointy’. ‘Gappy’ between teeth. Teeth not white enough despite teeth whitening.

Dentist Diagnosis

Dental midline cant. Irregular shapes and positioning of teeth. Worn teeth (short). Narrow smile. Teeth shade.

Treatment

Smile Design. Teeth whitening to improve the shade of the bottom teeth. 8 upper porcelain veneers characterised to create a proud masculine smile. Particular attention was paid to designing the veneers that allow for better function to reduce continued wear of the front teeth. Important to note that there are nuances with creating veneers for men vs women that a highly skilled ceramist is attuned to.

Client Concern

Client from New South Wales. Extremely self-conscious of smiling. Would like a bright white smile.

Dentist Diagnosis

Generalised wear and breakdown of all anterior and posterior teeth resulting in loss of cheek and jaw support – contributing to an aged appearance.

Treatment

Smile Design. Full occlusal analysis. Smile Lift using full mouth zirconia crowns and veneers to rebuild her smile. Support was restored to the cheeks and lower third of the face which creates a more youthful appearance – smile lift. We gave her a big white smile that she never had but wanted all through life.

Client Concern

Sydney client. Entrepreneur @thecosmeticlounge and mum of 3 children. Client has had Invisalign treatment with her local dentist to correct the positioning of her teeth. Would now like to perfect her smile with porcelain veneers. She was concerned about the shape and size of her front teeth and the colour of her teeth. Wants a perfect smile and pushes the boundaries of brightness without looking fake. Had a very good idea of the ‘look’ she wanted to achieve.

Dentist Diagnosis

Anterior teeth dominate the smile and are asymmetrical. Teeth have a square shape – slighter longer and slimmer teeth would better suit the facial profile. Upward cant (tilt) of the left side compared to the right side. Narrow smile. Shade of teeth.

Treatment

Smile Design. 10 upper porcelain veneers with the main aim of restoring balance and proportions to ‘clean up’ the smile frame. A beautiful bright shade with lots of vitality and detail that sits perfectly on the face. 1-week turnaround.

Client Concern

Actress on ‘Neighbours’. Conscious of how her smile looked on camera.

Dentist Diagnosis

Beautiful smile frame bordered by full lips. Healthy teeth and gums. Dental midline canted to the right and not coincident with facial midlines. Teeth proportions are normal. Teeth alignment issues. Teeth slightly hidden by lower lip. Shade of teeth.

Treatment

Smile Design. Teeth Whitening. 10 upper porcelain veneers to recreate a smile that shys away to one that will wow on camera. The design of the smile was applied to improve the 3 components of a smile: alignment , colour and shape with the aim of creating youth and vibrance to compliment her beauty.

Client Concern

Client was unhappy with the results of porcelain veneers she got from another clinic and would like to have them replaced.

Dentist Diagnosis

Poor health of underlying tooth and gums due to poor fit of veneers. Unsatisfactory aesthetics and health achieved.

Treatment

Smile re-design. Removal of existing 6 porcelain veneers and replacement with 10 upper porcelain veneers bring this smile back to life. It is very important to understand that if porcelain veneers are not created with respect to biology and aesthetic principles, you may end up with a very undesirable result.

Client Concern

‘My smile is all over the place’ – Model & social influencer.

Dentist Diagnosis

Invisalign treatment to reposition teeth was provided as an option but the client was looking for a quicker solution.

Treatment

Teeth whitening and 10 upper porcelain veneers to ‘reposition’ teeth for a more fluid appearance.

Client Concern

A model and Instagram influencer from Gold Coast. She’s concerned about the discoloration of her resin bonding and small chip on the front tooth. Also want to improve the overall shape and reduce the gaps between teeth. Hesitant to get veneers previously as she was afraid they would end up looking fake. Want highly natural aesthetics.

Dentist Diagnosis

Existing teeth and smile generally suit the facial profile. Dominance of central incisor. Incisal embrasures ‘gaps’ are not ideal. Axial inclinations not ideal – smile shys away. Failed resin bonding on right central incisor. Teeth shade.

Treatment

Smile Design. 10 upper porcelain veneers that have created subtle changes to effect an enhanced smile that is youthful, balanced and has good flow. Particular care was taken to not overdesign the smile to keep changes minimal but impactful. Turned about within one week before Ashton returned to Gold Coast with her new smile.

Client Concern

A travel enthusiast who loves living the good life but has always been conscious of her smile.

Dentist Diagnosis

Severely compromised dental aesthetics anteriorly and loss of posterior support. The shade of the teeth, wear and lack of lip / cheek support create an ‘aged’ profile. Bite issues.

Treatment

Smile Design with detailed occlusal analysis. A full mouth case using a combined treatment approach of: lower teeth invisalign, 10 upper porcelain veneers, 8 lower porcelain veneers and a few posterior implant crowns. Created harmony within the face and re-establish youthfulness in a natural way by placing the veneers in a way that increases support to the muscles of the lower third of the face. When you do this, you inadvertently ‘lift’ the face. I insisted we do not replace the existing gold work – it adds character and interest to the smile. 6 month treatment time.

Client Concern

Would like to have her smile perfected with porcelain veneers in time for her wedding in a year’s time.

Dentist Diagnosis

Upper right central incisor would require significant tooth reduction if positioning was not corrected prior to veneer placement with Invisalign. Golden proportions not ideal – with lateral incisors small. Canines masculine shape. Incisal embrasures are not ideal. Lower teeth – spacing between lower anteriors due to tongue thrust habit.

Treatment

Smile Design. Invisalign treatment for 3 months to close spaces in lower teeth. Followed by 10 upper porcelain veneers to emphasise a feminine smile while still keeping the character of the original smile. Perfectly natural.

Client Concern

Client has had porcelain veneers redone twice within 6 months by a local dentist in Sydney NSW and is unhappy with results achieved. Would like them replaced.

Dentist Diagnosis

‘Tic tac’ veneers. Facial planes and biology have not been respected and resulted in overcontoured porcelain veneers that are unaesthetic and unhealthy. When veneers are too big, they cause lip incompetence – where the lips don’t close and words can become hard to pronounce.

Treatment

Smile redesign. Removed all existing veneers and replaced with 10 new porcelain veneers. Having had veneers done for the third time within 6 months, she was obviously traumatised and it was important that we restored her faith in the dental profession. Our experienced master ceramist is able to skillfully create an illusion of much smaller teeth – this was critical in the success of the case. Look closely at the natural characteristics such as translucency added to the veneers to mimic nature.

Client Concern

A University student and model. Client feels that her smile is getting in the way of her modelling career. Would like a WOW smile without looking unnatural.

Dentist Diagnosis

Worn dentition. Inadequate teeth display when smiling. Straight smile line which does not follow the contours of the lower lip. Failing resin bonding. Worn posterior teeth – resulting in overall loss in vertical height. Shade of teeth. A smile that looks aged way beyond her age.

Treatment

Smile Design. Smile design and occlusal analysis. Teeth whitening. Full mouth rehabilitation using posterior onlays followed by 16 upper and lower porcelain veneers to cover worn enamel, regenerate what was lost and re-establish youth and vibrancy to the smile. Veneers are not just ‘cosmetic’, they are functional dental restorations that if used properly can enhance the bite and longevity of your natural teeth.

Client Concern

Client was looking for a discreet solution to improve her overall smile. She was hoping to replace her resin bonding with porcelain veneers for a cleaner and more permanent solution.

Dentist Diagnosis

Beautiful smile frame bordered by full lip profile. Failing resin bonding. Tooth shapes and proportions are not ideal.Smile line does not follow the contour of the lower lips. Buccal corridor ideal. Shade of teeth.

Treatment

Smile Design. 10 upper porcelain veneers to replace resin bonding to create a clean and youthful smile while remaining extremely discrete with the final appearance.

Dentist Diagnosis
