Your smile can be your finest physical asset, gives you a good chance at creating a great first impression and is one of your most convincing forms of communication.


If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry but are unsure of what treatment is right for you, Dr Bob Gibbins has put together these sets of following pointers to help you define what you would like to improve.

How to speed up the assessment if you live a long way from Cairns

If you have a reasonable digital camera, we can get a good idea of your needs to help you determine if you are prepared to come to Cairns for your care.

The photos you will need to send include:

  • one full face smiling photo from front on
  • one from either side at 45 degrees and a side view from both sides
  • two close up photos front on with lips held clear just showing top and bottom teeth both with teeth together and just far enough apart to show the tops of the lower front teeth
  • one close-up smiling just showing lips and teeth
  • one 45 degree photo from each side teeth together and holding the cheek aside enough to show side teeth

A useful tip is to use the flash and also to set the camera to macro mode when doing close ups. These can be emailed to with your enquiry.

If we get a clear full face photo, we can give you a good idea of how your smile can look and send it back to you using our software package Dental Snap, one of the first of these Cosmetic Imaging packages in Australia.
