Having a radiant, healthy smile can increase self-confidence and lead to success in both personal and career-oriented situations.
Unfortunately, many people are unhappy with their smiles, which can cause them to shy away from social interaction and even lose out on opportunities because they are self-conscious.
Find out how dentistry improves your smile and confidence from your Moorabbin dentist.
Symptoms of unhappiness with your smile include:
- Not posing for pictures that require a smile
- Covering your mouth when speaking or laughing
- Avoiding dating or other social activities because you feel unattractive
- Feeling people think less of you because your smile is flawed
- Thinking your smile makes you look older
How Dentistry Improves Your Smile and Confidence
- Reduced signs of aging. Whitening teeth to keep the colour bright and clean makes people feel younger and more confident.
- Increased happiness. Even minor changes to your smile like whitening or straightening can drastically improve your confidence and willingness to talk to others.
- Increased confidence. Going to a job interview, new social setting, or going on a first date all require a good first impression. The more you smile, the more confident and strong you feel.
- More willingness to smile. When your teeth look great, you are more likely to smile.

Teeth whitening is perhaps our most popular cosmetic treatment.
Teeth whitening in Melbourne is one of the most cost-effective was to make yourself look younger and more attractive, and Captivate Dental offers two convenient options: Take-home whitening and Zoom whitening.
In take-home whitening, we take a mould of your teeth and use this to make custom-fitted trays that you fill with gel and wear for 15 minutes, once a day for approximately 10 days.
After treatment, your teeth can be up to 6-10 shades lighter.
Zoom whitening takes place in our office and uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to accelerate the bleaching process. Zoom bleaches away the stains, leaving the structure of the tooth intact.
It is speedy, efficient, and safe. In most cases, your teeth will be 6-10 shades lighter.

Invisalign in Moorabbin
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. It requires no metal or wires and is almost invisible.
Invisalign patients can eat and drink anything whatever they want during treatment, as well as brush and floss normally.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-coloured shells of porcelain carefully crafted to cover teeth that are chipped, misaligned, or damaged.
Porcelain veneers can be used to fill gaps between teeth, and to improve the size, shape, and length of teeth. They can usually be placed in two appointments.
Composite restorations were created to replace traditional metal (amalgam) fillings. They are available in tooth-coloured shades, so they match your natural teeth far better than amalgam fillings. They are robust, durable, and make a very natural-looking smile.
Composite veneers use a resin that hardens on exposure to a specially developed curing light. They are a one-appointment procedure, as opposed to porcelain veneers, so they are both practical and economical.
Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth designed to replace missing teeth.
There are many different denture types. Dentures can be clipped to remaining teeth or dental implants for added stability.
