Aesthetic and Cosmetic dentistry can be a life changing experience for many people as it can restore confidence and self-esteem simply by improving their smile.

This gallery exhibits a range of results that Dr McIntosh (Angela) has achieved since opening Pearly Whites Dental in May 2014 to demonstrate examples of both simple and complex "smile" Aesthetic and Cosmetic restoration treatments and potential outcomes.

Smiles in these photos have been primarily treated using modern composite resin where Angela has used her artistic and technical skills to create beautiful smiles. Angela sculptures teeth to look natural and provides effective, high quality alternatives to expensive traditional and overseas treatments that are often not in the reach of the average person's budget.

Individual needs and results for Aesthetic and Cosmetic dentistry can vary and a consultation with Angela is necessary. A consultation will provide you with a selection of options to improve your smile whether it may be a simple clean, whitening or more complex treatments such as veneers and crowns. We are happy to provide written quotes and perform HICAPS quotes for participating Health Funds.

Recent advancements in composite resins, the material used for white fillings, have allowed new techniques to be developed using this amazing material so that healthy tooth structure does not need to be removed but rather built on.

In many cases, these techniques allow a skilled dentist to offer alternative solutions to those associated with traditional approaches such as porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges where dental laboratories are required to manufacture the components in between appointments and tooth structure must be removed. A detailed description of Composite Materials and their properties can be found on the Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry page.

Recent photographs have been taken with the aid of a ring flash and these appear "brighter" and more "white" than earlier photographs. Photographs have been cropped and resized. Some older photos have uniform lines caused by the dental chair LED light (note that lines vary from photo to photo). Photoshop (or similar) has NOT been used to remove these lines or enhance images to cover defects etc.

This patient is heavy grinder and is required to wear bite splint at night to prevent breakage of veneers and composite bridge work.

(Home Bleaching, Direct Composite Veneers on two teeth)

 
Heavily worn and aged teeth

(Composite Veneers done over two appointments - afternoon and following morning)

This patient had always wanted nice teeth and thought that his only option was to go overseas. This treatment was much cheaper than the treatment offered overseas even without including airfairs and accomodation.

The primary advantage of composite veneers for this patient is that his teeth are in generally good shape and there is NO NEED TO REMOVE GOOD TOOTH STRUCTURE that is required with traditional crowns!

Most importantly, the patient LOVES his new teeth.

The patient must wear a bite splint to protect his teeth at night from heavy grinding.
