Our cosmetic dentistry services include the following:
Veneers correct imperfections like gaps and stains. This dental cosmetic procedure is ideal for patients who require minor changes or adjustments to their smile.
Veneers are extra-thin porcelain or resin covers which bond to the front surfaces of your teeth. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and send to the dental lab to use to make the veneers.
Your dentist will remove the tooth surface before placing the veneers.
This is a simple procedure to brighten your smile. Tooth whitening or bleaching can be performed at the dental office or at home using customized trays.
Plaque and other debris in your teeth should be removed before whitening. There are over-the-counter tooth whitening products at grocery stores and pharmacies, but they’re not as effective as dentist-administered options.
Dental bonding can be used to close gaps between teeth, repair chipped teeth, or conceal stained teeth. This cosmetic treatment uses a tooth-coloured resin that’s applied to the tooth surface and cemented in place with a high-intensity light.
Your dentist then polishes and files your tooth as final touches. Bonding is one of the least expensive smile enhancement options.
Dental crowns are often used for worn, broken, or damaged teeth. They can also be used to support a filling if there’s no natural tooth left. This procedure restores both the tooth’s appearance and function.
A crown is fabricated at the dental lab and can be made using porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns, however, are popular as they’re durable and look most natural.
Dental fillings are often made of silver amalgam because of its durability. This material is ideal for use on tooth areas exposed to heavy chewing.
Other materials that can be used for dental fillings and you and your dentist can discuss which option is most suitable for you.
There are direct and indirect fillings. Direct fillings are completed in a single visit whereas indirect fillings require two or more dentist appointments.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used to restore damaged or decayed teeth and preserve the remaining healthy tooth. They can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite materials.
Unlike fillings that can be done in a single visit, inlays and onlays need to be fabricated at the dental lab. Inlays refer to the material placed within the center of the tooth. Onlays, on the other hand, covers the tooth surface.
Dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth. They serve as the foundation of the replacement tooth, which is made to look like your natural tooth.
Since the implants are fused into the jawbone, their placement tooth stays in place and does not shift or become loose. Implants can also be used to support dentures.
Invisalign® provides a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. This dental innovation shifts teeth to their proper position, resulting in a perfectly-aligned smile.
The plastic aligners are removable but need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day for maximum efficacy. The treatment duration can vary but is generally shorter than metal braces.
