What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry that works to create a positive change to your teeth and your smile. Improving your smile can have dramatic results on your overall appearance, boosting your confidence, self-esteem, and even making you want to smile more.

Over time, your teeth can begin to yellow, move out of alignment, chip and crack, or the enamel can wear down. Instead of hiding your smile or avoiding showing teeth altogether, maybe it’s time you explored the treatment options of cosmetic dentistry.

What to expect

When talking to the dentist about your smile, tell them precisely what you want to change. You can bring pictures of the way your mouth used to look or how you want it to look. A comprehensive oral exam is going to be needed to address any serious issues. The dentist and their patient should review a plan, which would be customized to fit your goals, your available time and your budget. They will discuss treatment options and develop a plan of action.

Treatment Options

There are a variety of procedures available that can be tailored and combined to tackle your needs. These procedures include veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, whitening and orthodontics.

Fixing Tooth Damage

Dental veneers can help with worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment, abnormal spacing or chips and cracks in your teeth. They are placed over the front of the tooth to recreate the look of natural teeth. Veneers are often made from composite resin (a tooth-colouring filling material) or porcelain. Dental crowns, which are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over your tooth to restore the tooth’s shape, size and strength as well as improve appearance.

Replacing Missing Teeth

Dental bridges are an option for replacing missing teeth. They are supported by the natural teeth around them or by implants to bridge gaps between missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth.

Getting a Brighter and Whiter Smile

Teeth whitening is a quick and non-invasive way to improve your smile. There are three options for teeth whitening: in-office whitening, professionally dispensed take-home whitening kits or over-the-counter teeth whitening. In-office whitening involves applying a protective gel to your gums and applying bleach to the teeth.

Straightening Your Smile

Traditional braces and Invisalign (invisible braces) are used to combat poor alignment and adjust the teeth’s position.

Ultimately, cosmetic dentistry can be worth the cost to help you take pride in your smile. An improved smile can help you feel more confident and improve your overall appearance. Contact us to learn more, or to schedule your free consultation.
