Maybe your teeth have been crooked since you can remember. Or perhaps your pearly whites aren’t so white anymore because of the heavily pigmented foods and drinks you love. You may even be concerned about a small flaw like a chip. It doesn’t matter how small that chip may be, you might be convinced that everyone notices it when you smile.
Stop hiding your chompers behind closed lips when it’s time for a selfie or group picture. Our team will listen to your concerns and help you determine cosmetic treatments to address them. We want to help you feel less self-conscious about your teeth, no matter the issue. To get a sense of what cosmetic dentistry can accomplish, check out some basic information on our services below.
Dental veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that are placed on the front surface of your teeth, completely covering the portion of your teeth that is visible while smiling. They are a highly versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment that can be used to conceal:
- Stains and other discoloration
- Worn-down teeth
- Slightly misshapen teeth
- Teeth with small gaps between them
We offer dental veneers made from porcelain or from e.max. Both will result in a noticeably improved smile following placement. Each material has its respective benefits. For example, e.max dental veneers are thinner, so they require less preparation of your tooth surface. We will discuss your options with you to help you make your decision.
If dental veneers are not right for you because the tooth preparation process is irreversible or for some other reason, we may be able to address many of the same smile flaws listed above with a tooth bonding treatment. This process uses a tooth-colored material to cover up and smooth over imperfections.
For those that would like to get a whiter smile, we also offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. You can walk in for an appointment and walk out with whiter teeth or brighten your smile at your convenience. According to the Canadian Dental Association, professional teeth whitening treatments are completely safe under the guidance of a trained dentist.
If you have crooked teeth, we can improve their alignment with a variety of orthodontics options. Because many patients don’t want to put up with the appearance of metal braces, we offer a few different clear aligner systems, including:
- Smart Moves
- K-Line clear aligners (for short-term orthodontic use only)
Depending on how misaligned your teeth are, any of the clear aligner options listed above could be used as a short-term orthodontic option to cosmetically improve misaligned teeth.
If clear aligners are not a good fit for your needs, we also offer traditional metal braces that use either stainless-steel wires or a titanium-nickel blend called nitinol. Both options use a gentle pressure to gradually straighten your teeth, including the tooth roots.
We can also combine the treatments mentioned above to come up with a personalized smile makeover treatment for you. For instance, many patients that get metal braces want to improve the color of their teeth with a whitening procedure following the orthodontic treatment. So you’ll know what to expect, we will provide a mock-up. You can “test run” your smile by placing this mock-up right over your natural teeth.
