Cosmetic dentistry seeks to improve your smile and teeth condition. Dentists practicing this treatment replace missing teeth, restore worn or fractured teeth, help with teeth whitening, and fix broken teeth.
Some people are hesitant to get cosmetic dentistry services. This hesitation can be because they have various questions. Are you one of them?

The popular culture in North America set the standard of whiteness of one’s teeth pretty high. Those who choose to follow them are often faced with certain challenges. Age, food preferences, habits and simply genetic differences determine the shade of their teeth. If there are restorations placed in the front teeth because of caries or fractures, over time they become discolored and unsightly. Existing crowns or veneers may not be satisfactory anymore.
Teeth can be whitened with an over-the counter product with a fairly good result or with a help of a dentist. In any case, it is a good idea to have your dentist examine your particular case. As crowns and fillings to not respond to whitening products, you may get poor results where you have them. The stains on you teeth could be extrinsic and therefore removable by simple cleaning. Finally, there are some types of discolorations i.e. tetracycline stain of following endodontic treatment, that may not respond to any bleaching. In those cases, you might need other solutions, such as porcelain veneers or crowns.
These highly aesthetic lab-made restorations are used to correct both shade and alignment of the front teeth and create a “perfect smile”. They require very little tooth preparation and at least two appointments to make. They are bonded (glued) to the teeth permanently. Book a consultation with us today for more details on if porcelain veneers are the right option for you.
Just like veneers, the crowns are made in a laboratory. They are done when for various reasons, veneers are not possible. The crowns require significant tooth preparation (cutting). Modern crowns are highly aesthetic and provide resistance to tooth fracture. Your dentist will decide whether you need crowns or veneers.
Healthy gums are just as much a part of a beautiful smile as great-looking teeth. Poorly made restorations will cause persistent gingivitis (gum inflammation). And of course, excellent oral hygiene is a must for a predictable aesthetic outcome. In our office we give patients hands-on training and monitor their plaque control on a regular basis.
