6.SMILE ENHANCEMENT

SMILE MAKEOVER

Do you need a smile makeover? People want cosmetic dentistry for various reasons. Some people may want to look younger, while others may feel they have never had attractive teeth. We assure you that we will resolve all the issues you have with the appearance of your smile with a variety of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures.

Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a wide variety of treatment options to enhance your smile. Smile makeovers may require one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve the look you want.Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry has advanced with natural-looking, tooth-coloured dental materials. Lasers and other technology can also preserve as much of the tooth structure as possible. Here are some common cosmetic dentistry procedures that might be right for your teeth.

Whitening:

Teeth can get stained from smoking, food, drink or poor oral hygiene. Teeth whitening (bleaching) is one of the most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedures. Going to a dentist for in-office teeth whitening produces far better results than over-the-counter whiteners at the local market.

Inlays and Onlays:

Inlays and onlays are made of porcelain or composite materials. They are a long-lasting cosmetic way to create a "filling" in teeth that have tooth decay or other structural damage. Inlays and onlays are pre-built before being adhesively bonded to your teeth by your dentist.

Dental Bonding:

If you have chipped, discoloured or decayed teeth, they can be corrected with composite bonding. A dental composite material is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of a tooth, and sculpted into shape with a high-intensity light (laser). This restoration can blend right into your teeth.

Veneers:

Dental veneers are made from composite or porcelain materials that are bonded to the surface of a tooth to improve a worn down appearance or severe discoloration. Veneers may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth, or if teeth whitening hasn’t delivered the smile you want.

Dental Implants:

A dental implant is an artificial tooth and root that actually replaces a missing tooth. It is surgically attached to the jawbone over two to three visits. A dental implant can actually make some people look younger.

A full mouth reconstruction may necessary if there are serious problems with your bite, muscles, teeth and bone structure. Fortunately, today’s dentures (false teeth) look very natural and many folks won’t even notice you have them. Finding a cosmetic dentist requires careful consideration. Cosmetic dentistry is as much an art as it is a science.
