What is ‘Aesthetic’ Dentistry? Any dentist can style themselves a ‘cosmetic dentist’, as there is no such recognised speciality in Australia. That said, the concept of Aesthetic dentistry is well established, and goes far beyond simply making a smile ‘look’ better. It encompasses concepts about a person’s face, age, personality, goals, motivations and overall well-being. Using a combination of varying treatments, an aesthetic dentist must be able to create a smile that is not only pleasing to look at, but must be conservative, functional, healthy and designed to last and improve each patient’s quality of life, by complimenting who they are.
