The Max-Approved Dream Team Who Will Take Care Of Your Smile

Dazzle in 2019 with these MM-approved dental specialists who will elevate a gorgeous grin into an art form.

Let’s be real – there is nothing as disarming as your smile.

Yet if you haven’t been blessed with a set of the whitest or straightest teeth, you can be prone to covering your mouth any time some delight/hilarity springs those lips open!

Way too many people I know are self-conscious about their smile, to the point when they are unwilling to show their teeth. This can basically make you close off from the world, retreat from others and impact your general happiness.

That is not on, and the reason I’m posting this article.

Our smile is our gift, something that transcends all borders.

Whether you crave something natural and effective to upgrade your dental care routine or want teeth so white it makes that summer tan pop there are solutions that empower you.

Everyone deserves a free and confident, ear-to-ear grin, so here is a list of my secret squirrel recommendations for that Hollywood smile that will open all kinds of doors.

Just say, Max sent you…




For at-home whitening:

Sparkling White Smile

These babes will come to your home or office as part of their mobile service. Established in 2014 by the divine Alison Egan, the dedicated team use a natural whitening product that will get your teeth to their natural colour. The average improvement comes at 6-8 shades lighter, and 6 week top up is recommended after the first treatment and then every 6-12 months, depending on your enamel general eating and drinking habits.

Of course, results will last longer if you refrain from ingesting those darkly-hued fluids – so you may want to hold the coffee, ciggies, red wine and Diet Coke for a bit (which will obvs do wonders for your skin also. However, Al and her team are confident about most stains, with the Ultra White treatment affording the recipient the highest grade smile for the heavy coffee drinker or smoker.

Of course, the SWS team will advise you on your best options and go from there. Only caveat – not recommended if you’re pregnant or under 14. Otherwise, go nuts!




For natural at-home care: 

101 Lifestyle

Sourcing only the very finest natural ingredients from all over Australia, the husband and wife duo at 101 Lifestyle have sought to eliminate all the ‘nasties’ commonly found in some of the big brands.

Created by Melbourne-based Lisa Teh and Saul Klimas, 101 Lifestyle’s natural Charcoal Mouthwash and Toothpaste include charcoal, which has been proven to be a natural way to gently remove stains and whiten teeth – and of course is designed to leave your breath minty fresh.

I love the chic packaging and the sentiment of the brand –  confidently minimal and timeless, without artifice. Available exclusively at Mecca!




For cosmetic dentisty: 

Dental Lounge 

Dr Gamer Verdian is known as ‘the dapper dentist’, beloved for his well-honed eye and no-OTT approach. When you get veneers, he goes for a natural aesthetic and just fits them so beautifully to your face. It just looks like you were born with great teeth all along – hence his brilliant track record.

Equipped with the latest technology such as Digital Smile Design and taking into account a ‘global’ approach that incorporate a patient’s full facial features as well as their movements and personality, Dr Gamer attests to many patients finding love or getting a promotion after their dental makeover. Now that is the power of a beautiful smile. Based in Sydney CBD.
