There are two groups of people that do not see the dentist. The first group might be a group of patients who are very, very anxious and therefore, they don’t visit the dentist for that reason. There’s a second group of people that do not see a dentist because they think everything’s fine because there’s no pain, there’s no discomfort and they feel healthy. Now I want to address the second group of people. The reason is that when you don’t feel any pain or sensitivity or discomfort, it does not mean that you’ve got nothing wrong in your teeth.

If you’ve been doing research in cosmetic dentistry, you might have come across this term, “temporary veneers” or “trial veneers”. You might be wondering, what is it all about, and what does it do? I want to educate patients who are not sure what they are all about, and hopefully, help you along this journey.
Are you anxious in coming to see a dentist or do you know someone who is? You are not alone! One third of Australians are actually fearful of coming to the dentist. Dental anxiety can affect you in many ways because it actually causes you to not want to see a dentist, and that could have detrimental effects on your health in the long term.
A gummy smile can be embarrassing to some people, because a gummy smile causes your teeth to look very small, and you show a lot of gums when you’re smiling. Now this can create some form of embarrassment when you are smiling, and it may cause a lack of confidence, or self confidence may decrease if you’ve got a gummy smile.
It really bothers me when cosmetic dentistry has got a stigma that’s linked to fake celebrities or fake smiles, rich snobs, Instagram stars, people who are rich and wealthy. Now, the reason why it bothers me is because I really truly believe that cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for these people. It could be for them, but it’s not just for them because to me, cosmetic dentistry is all about opening doors for the right person.
