Cosmetic dentistry can do more than enhance your smile. While procedures like teeth whitening are purely aesthetic, other techniques for improving the appearance of your teeth can be beneficial to your overall oral health as well.
There are a handful of different procedures offered at our dental clinic. Which one is right for you depends on what you want to improve. Here’s an overview of some of the most effective cosmetic dentistry treatments and the issues each of them resolves.
Teeth whitening is a quick and easy solution if your teeth are yellow or stained or you simply want a brighter smile. One of the most effective and convenient methods involves using a custom-fitted whitening tray and a peroxide cleaning agent provided by your dentist. It allows you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home and produces the desired result within a few weeks.
Invisalign aligners and braces both remedy a large number of issues, including crooked teeth, gaps, crowding, overbites and underbites. Fixing these issues results in more than a perfect smile: aligned teeth will also help prevent tooth decay, gum disease and can help prevent the harmful effects of teeth grinding. When teeth are crooked or crowded, it’s difficult to brush and floss effectively and bacteria and plaque tend to build up. However, Invisalign has a big advantage over braces. Since the aligner is practically invisible, you won’t feel self-conscious about wearing it.
Dental veneers can enhance your smile in many ways. Veneers are shells typically made of porcelain that a dentist fastens onto your teeth. They’re a quick way to change the shape and colour of your teeth and can cover up gaps, chips, permanent stains and misshapen or crooked teeth.
Crowns and bridges
Dental crowns are caps that are fastened onto your teeth; they’re typically made of porcelain or metal. In addition to enhancing the appearance of your teeth, they make broken or decaying teeth stronger and more functional. Dental bridges are restorations that work by fixing an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or implants. They provide the look and function of natural teeth.
