What is Cosmetic Dental Care?
With cosmetic dental procedures, our primary goal is to make aesthetic changes to the teeth and gums.
Are your teeth misaligned or discoloured? Perhaps they are broken, worn, misaligned or have gaps between them. In these cases, cosmetic dental treatments can help improve their symmetry and colour.
For many patients, these treatments can have a significant impact when it comes to having renewed confidence in their smiles.
If you are thinking about whitening your teeth, you may want to consider a professional teeth whitening session at your dentist's office. Peroxide-based teeth whitening agents in teeth whitening solutions are designed to lighten the colour of your teeth. With safe, effective in-office and take-home treatment options available, you can enjoy a lighter, brighter smile.
Veneers are extremely thin pieces of porcelain that your dentist applies to the front of your teeth to change their shape or colour. Used on teeth with uneven surfaces, custom-made veneers can also be applied to teeth that are discoloured, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, crooked or chipped. They are affixed to the front of your teeth using cement resin. This process typically takes at least two visits.
This aptly named cosmetic procedure has your dentist literally 'bonding' tooth-coloured composite resin to decayed, damaged, gapped or discoloured teeth to give you a more even, natural-looking smile. Your dentist will choose the resin that best matches your natural teeth so that it blends in.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected underneath the skin to smooth lines, soften wrinkles, enhance facial contours or restore lost volume. Also referred to as "wrinkle fillers", they can also enhance and plump lips and improve symmetry in facial features.
