Cosmetic Dentistry

Treatment may be simple or complex, involving one or several procedures; ranging from repairing chipped teeth to a full smile makeover.

 

Our experienced dentists take the time to listen to your goals, explain the possibilities and customize a treatment plan.

Some of the smile-enhancing procedures we offer include:

 

  • Teeth Whitening — A relatively inexpensive way to brighten your smile, whitening teeth can be accomplished at home or in the dentist's chair. There are many products and methods from which to choose. Read more about Teeth Whitening.

 

  • Composite Bonding — A tooth-coloured composite resin attached to the teeth can improve the appearance and strength of chipped teeth. These procedures require very little preparation (drilling) of the tooth. Read more about Composite Filings.

 

  • Porcelain & Composite Veneers — Designed to substitute for tooth enamel, veneers are hard, thin shells of tooth-coloured material that can mask a variety of dental imperfections. Read more about Porcelain Veneers

  • Porcelain Crowns — Heavily damaged teeth can be covered with natural-looking porcelain crowns, which replace more natural tooth structure than veneers. Read more about Porcelain Crowns.

 

  • Porcelain Bridgework — A missing tooth can be replaced with porcelain bridgework that is attached to the natural teeth on either side of the space.

 

  • Dental Implants — Usually made of titanium, an implant is used to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant is fitted with a crown to create a natural-looking replacement for the entire tooth. Read more about Dental Implants.

 

  • Inlays & Onlays — In certain cases, fillings can be fabricated from porcelain or composite materials in a dental laboratory to more closely match the colour of a tooth. When applied to the inside of the tooth, they are referred to as “inlays.” Attached to the biting surface, they are known as “inlays.”

 

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings — Gone are the days when a filling has to be obvious and unsightly. Tooth-colored fillings are barely noticeable.

 

  • Invisalign orthodontics – straighten teeth with discretion.   Read more about Orthodontics.

 

  • Clear Orthodontic Aligners — Many adults, as well as some teenagers, are opting for clear orthodontic aligners, instead of metal braces, to straighten their teeth. Read more about Invisalign.

 

  • Cosmetic Gum Surgery — Minor surgery can reshape gum tissue to give it a more levelled appearance.

 

  • Tooth Contouring & Reshaping — Cosmetic dentists can use a drill or laser to smooth out or reshape teeth.
