What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry can profoundly impact an individual’s life by increasing self-assurance and improving oral health. For instance, if too much of the gums is visible in your smile, you may want to consider gum recontouring – a gentle, effective treatment for improving one’s appearance. Often people look into these procedures as they are uneasy with specific characteristics of their facial structure or grin; placing veneers, for example, is a great alternative when you have chipped or lost teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services

1. Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening treatments provide a safe, quick, and effective way to brighten your teeth. Our services include in-office bleaching, take-home kits, or a combination.

2. Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial replacements for natural teeth that look and function like your own natural teeth. This treatment can replace one or more missing teeth, help support existing dental work and improve your smile’s appearance.

3. Bonding and Reshaping: We use composite resins to change the shape and size of existing teeth to enhance their appearance without extra stress on your teeth or gums.

4. Veneers: Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain or resin that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth to mask chips, cracks, stains and gaps. Veneers can make misaligned, uneven or crooked teeth look straighter and more uniform in coloration with little to no drilling required!

5. Invisalign Clear Braces: If you have an overbite or other misalignment problems with your bite, you may benefit from Invisalign braces! They offer discreet clear aligners that easily fit around the contours of your teeth, ensuring no discomfort and almost unnoticeable presence on the mouth during the process.

6. Porcelain Crowns/Caps: Porcelain crowns can cover a decayed or severely discoloured tooth to restore its structure, strength and appearance. Porcelain crowns also offer extra protection from fractures and other potential damage and replace existing fillings that have broken down over time.
