Sydney Smile Makeover Before and After Transformation by Mona Vale Dental

Sydney, New South Wales -

Dr Alistair Graham, Principal Dentist at Mona Vale Dental, has noticed any people hide their smiles because they’re self-conscious about cosmetic imperfections and are scared to invest money on a dental procedure they might regret.

A new treatment that provides an accurate digital preview of what your new smile will look like is now available. The cutting-edge technology that allows patients to preview their smile before committing to any treatment has changed cosmetic dentistry. Greg, a small business owner from the Northern Beaches recently underwent this new dental treatment.

Greg is the founder of a security blind business, where he interacts with customers every day. When Greg started to realise he didn’t want people to see his flawed teeth as he worried about how he’d be perceived, he decided to contact Mona Vale Dental.

“I’ve got chipped and crooked teeth that to me, are not the right colour. I feel conscious about my teeth when I see my customers,” Greg said.

“I want to present well and show that everything I do and touch is a good product and I worry about my teeth not being that product,” Greg continues.

Dr Alistair Graham from Mona Vale Dental created a design that Greg was able to preview and adjust to his preferences - before getting the treatment that restored his confidence.

“The first impressions were incredible. I feel a lot happier now out in public, just smiling without worrying about people looking at my teeth,” said Greg, discussing the big reveal of his new smile.

Digital Smile Design (DSD) uses advanced digital and 3D technology to perform high-quality treatments that patients feel good about. Patients receive a new, functional smile that looks completely natural because it is tailored to suit their facial dimensions and personality.

The treatment works starting with the latest digital instruments, which are used to diagnose the problem. The dentist can then inspect areas that aren’t easily accessed by traditional X-rays.

After the diagnosis, the patient's exact facial dimensions and expressions are captured with high resolution photographs and videos. Using this data, dentists create a design that’s balanced with facial proportions to look unique to each person.

The next step is to create a 3D mock-up of the proposed smile, which is placed over teeth to create a realistic preview. The patient can take home photos and videos of the mock-up, to get feedback from their loved ones.

What makes digital smile design unique, is the patient is not completely happy with the results, the design can be perfected with the patient’s feedback.

Finally, a treatment plan is created around the approved design. Dentists physically replicate the exact smile their patient desires, but only after they get approval to go ahead from the patient. This allows the patient to co-design their smile with their dentist, and there’s no obligation for patients to commit to the procedure.

Accredited clinics around the world offer Digital Smile Design services. Not any clinic can do this, as extensive training is required for this specialised field of cosmetic dentistry. In Australia, Dr Alistair Graham is qualified to use Digital Smile Design for both surgical and restorative treatments.

People from the Northern Beaches and surrounding areas seek out the award-winning Mona Vale Dental team for treatments they won’t regret. The team can be contacted on (02) 9997 1100.

On display at the Bellriver Homes Huntlee Display Centre is the Bayswater 22 design, which is their most popular single storey home. Many of their designs have been made to fit 12.5m allotments, while others have one side on the boundary line. Others are suitable for a 13.2m allotment where both sides are 900mm off the boundary, or 14.5m wide lots that are shallow in depth.

The Huntlee Display Centre allows those who are thinking of building a new home to actually see what a particular home design would look like. Specifically, on display at this particular display center is the Bayswater 22 floor plan. This particular design has a total floor area of 21.73 square metres. Its living area is 17.0 sq m, its garage has 3.5 sqm, the porch has 0.16 sqm, and the alfresco area has 1.07 sqm. It has four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 carports.

The Bayswater 22 floorplan is available for viewing at the Bellriver Homes Huntlee Display Centre

All of the home designs available through Bellriver Homes are new and packed full of modern features. Most have several living spaces, such as media rooms and big, workable kitchens that are provided with walk in pantries. And all have living areas that flow out onto a large alfresco area. All are designs by an award winning architect.

Those who are interested in building a new home in the Hunter region, such as North Rothbury, NSW, can check out their house and land packages in order to finally make their dream home a reality.

These packages provide clients with a block of land and customizable plans for building a new home, which ensures that they will be getting exactly what they want out of a home.

House and land packages offer several advantages for people who are looking to build their dream home. First of all, it offers savings on stamp duty because only the stamp duty for the land will have to be paid, thus offering a savings of more than $10,000 for a home worth $350,000. Other benefits include: avoidance of unexpected repairs and renovations; a tailor-fitted home; less costly than buying a new home; homes in emerging suburbs; and possibility of deferring settlement payments.

Choosing the ideal package will take just four simple steps. The first step is to determine one’s finances and budget.

The second step is to determine the appropriate location for the home. For this step, a House and Land Specialist from Bellriver Homes will work with the client in choosing the desired location and house and land package. The third step is to choose the preferred home layout. Once again, the House and Land Specialist will assist the client in going through the customizable home plans. And finally, the fourth step is to choose a particular house and land package.

Tirtyl Announces 2022 Goal to Collect 5 Million Plastic Bottles

Brisbane based Australian home & personal care company Tirtyl has pledged to collect five million plastic bottles in 2022 which would otherwise find their way in the ocean.

In partnership with Plastic Bank, Tirtyl will collect one ocean-bound plastic bottle for every tab sold, and 10 plastic bottles for every dispenser. Donations are made to locals in developing communities in the form of wages to collect, sort and process plastic waste which mostly originates from beaches and riverbanks.

Tirtyl Team

A similar campaign in 2021 was well supported with the collection of one million plastic bottles. This was double the original goal set for the project. Based on the achievement, Tirtyl is confident of achieving the ambitious target set this year.

In a report commissioned by conservation group WWF-Australia and prepared by Boston Consulting Group in 2020, it was estimated that about 600 million empty plastic bottles are leaked into the environment each year.

The report went on to explain that the six most common types of single-use plastics were plastic bottles, disposable foodware, soft crunchable plastics, microplastics, plastic containers, and disposable packaging.

To put this into perspective, WWF-Australia suggests that every year the combined weight of single-use plastics released into the environment is estimated to equal the weight of two Titanic ships.

If that isn’t enough cause for concern, an Economic Forum study made a startling prediction that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the world's oceans.

It can take up to 400 years for plastic to completely biodegrade in saltwater. However plastic breaks down into tiny particles called microplastics which are ingested by marine life. This often causes malnutrition and creates physical barriers that affect the organs and other bodily functions leading to starvation and death.

Sea turtles consume twice as much plastic today compared to 25 years ago. A worldwide study found that around 100,000 seabirds and sea turtles are killed as a result of plastic in our oceans each year.

Aside from plastic consumption, entanglement is another cause for concern. Turtles and large fish can get entangled in waste plastic, preventing them from swimming freely which leads to drowning.

Crustaceans and small fish seeking shelter find their way into plastic bottles and get trapped inside. Plastic bottles are mostly translucent and fish and marine life aren’t able to locate the mouth of the bottle after entering it.

Almost all the plastic ever produced still exists in some form on the planet. Global plastic production is estimated to exceed 300 million tons.

By 2050, the human population is expected to increase to almost 10 billion people and plastic production is expected to triple. Only a fraction of this plastic will be recycled and the rest will clog the sea and land.

The barriers to manufacturer and procure plastic are low and there is limited government regulation to prevent crisis from getting worse. There is an urgent need to rethink the entire plastic manufacturing, distribution and consumption system in order to control plastic pollution.

Tirtyl has played a pivotal role in making the earth a better place for our future generations through its mission of making conscious consumption mainstream.

Founders Lachlan and May believe that conscious consumption should be effortless if it is to reach mainstream adoption. Tirtyl’s products make it easy to switch to a cleaner, greener way of using soap. All Tirtyl products and accessories are environmentally friendly, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and come in plastic-free packaging.

The company builds better supply chains through detailed life-cycle assessment (LCA) and ethical sourcing. Tirtyl also donates up to 2% of sales to important social causes through their Tirtyl Tip Foundation.

Lindsay Tighe Featured In Bob Tiede’s Development Blog On Leadership Qualities

Beechworth, Victoria based Empowered Conversations is proud to share that their founder was recently featured in Bob Tiede's leadership development blog, Leading With Questions, along with an excerpt from her brand new book.

On his website, Tiede shares his passion for helping people in leadership positions throughout the world. He considers it his mission to help shift their paradigm from the pressure of having to have all the right answers to simply having a few of the right questions. He has been on the staff of Cru for 50 years and currently serves in the US Leadership Development Team.

“Better Leaders Ask Better Questions”

In Leading With Questions, those aspiring to be better leaders can find curated wisdom from leaders around the globe, ideas to help multiply their effectiveness, leadership book recommendations, interviews with thought leaders, authors, pastors and more. Tiede is focused on building a community of leaders who are shifting their focus from having all the answers to asking the right questions. Empowered Conversations founder Lindsay Tighe’s expertise in leadership — and her years of experience as an Inspirational Coach — have earned her the featured spot in Leading With Questions.

Tighe has established herself a successful and highly regarded speaker, businesswoman, author and coach who is passionate about inspiring people to improve their own lives and the lives of others. She is committed to changing the world by helping people to have more empowered thoughts and conversations with each other in order to tap into their own wisdom by asking better questions.

Having left the corporate world in 2002, Tighe started her own business in Inspirational Coaching. Initially, the business’ focus was to provide inspiring training and coaching opportunities. Starting off with around 10 employees, Lindsay grew her business to a point where she realized she had more to offer. She created the Better Questions brand and published her first book, “The Answer – Improve Your Life By Asking Better Questions”, in 2009. This led to her creating a new workshop and multiple resources and since then her work has been shared with thousands of people throughout Australia as well as in New Zealand and Singapore. In 2021, Lindsay evolved her brand further to share her work with the global audience, and Empowered Conversations was born. Here, Lindsay consolidates her life’s work into offering workshops and resources that provide a powerful and unique opportunity for people to learn how to think and act differently.

In her newest book “Better Leaders Ask Better Questions”, Lindsay delves into how anyone can be a better leader simply by following the right line of inquiry. She puts forward the idea that leaders can evolve to become a ‘potentialiser’ (a catalyst that brings out the best in others) simply by changing their approach. According to Lindsay, leaders who command less and ask proper, fulfilling questions can create a team that is more engaged and empowered.

In the book, both leaders and aspiring leaders will find the key to enhance their leadership style by learning what actions can be an inhibitor of potential, how leaders need to redefine their role by changing their mindset, why better questions are so powerful and perhaps most importantly, how to actually ask better questions and release the potential in their team.

Tighe says, “I have always believed that great communication skills are fundamental to not only building good relationships, but also enabling other people to be more capable, empowered, engaged and motivated, leading to better outcomes being achieved. I have led my life by this example, and I have found that it is the most effective way to properly lead a team. Most people communicate in a habitual and inhibitive way, without ever realising that is what they are doing, and they lose so much in the process. I am hoping to help people change that mindset and become better leaders through Better Questions.”

Tighe has taught corporate leaders, health professionals, aged/disability professionals, educators, parents and more, and her clients include APM, Telstra, Local Government, Feros Care, Large Hospitals, NDS, APNA, Diabetes TAS, Carers Victoria, Uniting Care, Schools, Baptcare, Mission Australia, Silverchain, Regional Primary Health Networks, MINDA, Community Vision, OT AUS and more.

Tradie Creates Australia's Comfiest Performance Workwear Brand, Form Workwear

Form Workwear founder Liam had grown frustrated over the low-quality, overpriced workwear that he and his colleagues bought year after year. The typical workwear brands available were not performing up to the standards of a demanding job-site. This is where Australia's newest performance workwear brand, Form Workwear, was born.

The brand, Form Workwear, claims to offer Australia's most comfortable performance workwear for Australian tradies. They are available online at formworkwear.com.au and at a range of local workwear stores.

Australian workwear brand Form Workwear is "obsessed with comfort"

Form Workwear is focused on creating high-performance workwear products for men that are comfortable, durable, and perform on a job site. The range of products include shirts, pants, shorts, hoodies, t-shirts and jackets.

The Form Workwear brand represents what a tradesperson is looking for on the job site. At its core the brand has been focused on listening to and being inspired by the real needs of Australian tradies. The development of the Form Workwear brand was a highly collaborative initiative which included the insight of various tradies as well as external experts to ensure everything from its design, to photography and social media communications showcase the core message of "by tradies, for tradies".

“I heard from my mates on site that they felt like there isn’t an apparel or workwear brand that really delivers on the promises their marketing makes,” said Liam, Founder of Form Workwear, who led Form Workwear’s brand development. “As a tradesman myself, I feel a responsibility to create products that you can purchase with confidence, knowing that it's comfortable and going to last. We engineered some things differently with our products, and it's those innovations which make all the difference."

One such innovation is the Form Workwear pants that have "reversed fabric" so the softer side of the fabric is on the skin. The pants are availalbe in navy, khaki or black. Learn more about the reverse-engineered work pants at formworkwear.com.au/collections/work-pants.

“This is all new to me," said Liam, "but the initial feedback on the prototypes were so good I knew we were on to something.” He continues, “We want to make sure we’re engaging in ways that feel authentic to and resonate with some of Australia's hardest workers, the humble Aussie tradie."

Although the founder is new to starting a workwear brand, his hands-on experience has ensured that all Form Workwear garments are thoroughly tested for quality and also comply with Australian and New Zealand hi-vis standards

Liam continues, "the day-to-day workload of a tradie is hard enough without having to wear uncomfortable, stifling workwear. As a tradesman myself, I know what I want out of my gear. So I went ahead and made my own. It turns out I might have made Australia's most comfortable workwear." He added, "Everyone loved it so much, I had to start a business to satisfy the demand. I hope we can do a good enough job marketing Form Workwear that other tradies get to experience the quality of our gear that they can feel good about buying.”

Form Workwear is available at some retail stores at this time, as the brand hopes to grow its retail footprint while it engages its customers on the platforms they use most such as Instagram and Facebook.

For more information about Form Workwear, please visit formworkwear.com.au.

Bellriver Homes Offers New Home Packages Through Orange Display Centre

Orange, New South Wales -

Bellriver Homes, based in Orange, New South Wales, is offering free home and design consultations at their Bellriver Homes Orange Display Centre in order to help property owners build their dream homes. The company had its humble beginnings in the Central West of NSW, and has since built up an intimate knowledge about the region. Their team is passionate about seeing their communities prosper.

The Orange Display Centre serves the purpose of giving their clients an idea of the high standard they can expect from Bellriver Homes. The centre displays home designs that cater to the diverse range of preferences of the local community. The company also advises homeowners to make use of land packages for more efficient and convenient construction of their dream homes. For instance, the Ascot is available in four floor plan sizes. This cosy, two-storey design includes four (or five in the largest floor plan) bedrooms, study and media rooms, dining-living areas, a kitchen and a rumpus area. It also has a walk-in pantry and wardrobes for the master bedroom. This is just one example of all the amazing houses displayed in the Bellriver Orange Display Centre. The company has also built similar centres in other locations around Sydney, including Marsden Park, Austral, North Rothbury, Calderwood, Narraweena, Edmondson Park, Leppington, Oran Park and Warnervale. These centres offer many resources for the new home builder.

Bellriver Homes is committed to providing high-quality services for their clients, fulfilling their wishes and helping them achieve their dream homes. The company believes in giving their clients the opportunity to work with a reliable builder that prioritises quality and excellent customer service. It is extremely important, they say, to hire the right home builder in order for each client to have their needs met. Bellriver Homes makes it a point to encourage property owners to seek a professional home design consultation to make sure that all of their concerns will be properly addressed before the actual construction begins. This allows for adjustments and changes to be made to the plan before it is too late — and also helps design the perfect final home.

Clients must be careful when selecting their preferred design, especially considering that the best home will be able to maximise the advantages of its location. For example, Bellriver Homes offers home design consultations in Willowdale Estate, located in Denham Court in East Leppington. It is a beautiful area surrounded by nature, and it is also close to commercial areas. Willowdale is an ideal location for a home because it can offer the best of the outdoor and city experience to homeowners. It is also a short distance away from many necessary institutions and establishments, such as schools, parks, gyms and more, making it an even more suitable location to build a home.

Clients should also be critical in choosing home building companies with highly experienced designers. Fortunately, Bellriver Homes boasts many professional and award-winning individuals on their team. The company’s architects are recognized by multiple organisations, such as the MBA and HIA. Bellriver Homes’ designers specialise in many fields, such as classical designs, modern architecture and much more. The display home in Orange is proof of their excellent taste and undeniable talent.

Homeowners should work alongside reputable home building companies to customise their home’s design. Clients have the freedom to adjust a design to their taste and style and make sure that it meets their particular needs. This includes customising the floor plan, choosing architectural finishes and adding touches that are uniquely theirs. A home builder should be able to guide clients throughout this whole process in order to assure the quality of the final construction. Bellriver Homes seeks to produce home design plans that meet the standards and tastes of their clients while also offering a flexible approach to design and styling that allows homeowners a great amount of freedom in customising their choices. The company is also dedicated to maintaining effective communication through their customer service consultants, with each client being assigned to an exclusive consultant who will be with them throughout the whole process.
