Technically, dental implants are a form of cosmetic dentistry. If you have broken, chipped, permanently discoloured or loose teeth then dental implants will boost your confidence and have you smiling again in no time.
But to say that high quality dental implants are purely cosmetic is incorrect. Dental implants are functional as well as cosmetic. Dental implants are used to replace missing or loose teeth and poorly fitting dentures. They enable you to chew again; they prevent gum recession and bone loss and if you have had missing teeth or dentures that don’t fit then they can change the shape of your face.

Exciting times here at work! We have just re-branded and added Laser to our name to become Cosmic Smile Laser Dental. Why you ask? Well, all because of the new dental laser that lets us do more treatments with better results, faster and more comfortably. That’s a Win-Win.
The new laser is the Lightwalker AT S. The MOST advanced dental laser ever built. It is actually two lasers in one. Each of its lasers is 10-15x more powerful than the current lasers I have = MORE EFFECTIVE TREATMENT.

We can do better conservative and cosmetic dentistry, root canal treatments, periodontal therapy, aesthetic procedures, gum and bone work and even NightLase snoring treatment!
We are the first dentist in NSW to have this equipment and provide the benefits that only laser light technology can bring.
So if you hate the sound of the dental drill then call us to find out how we’ll be able to help you.

So many times we hear patients say that they only go to the dentist when they are in pain. And when the patient has a really sore tooth, all we can do is relieve their pain. We call this Emergency Dentistry. But is this really what the patient wants? (more…)
Dental implants are specially engineered pieces of titanium that are placed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw to support an overlying structure. That structure can be a crown, a fixed partial denture or bridge, or a fixed or removable denture. Different sized dental implants are placed in different parts of the mouth because each type of tooth has a different function. The action of the small front incisors are to cut food and so smaller dental implants are placed in the front of the mouth. The back molars are chewing teeth so larger dental implants must be used to able to withstand the grinding forces. (more…)
