Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures for Good Health and a Better Smile

Cosmetic dentistry differs from general dentistry in that the majority of the cosmetic dentistry procedures focus on improving one's appearance, along with the quality of an individual's teeth. However, cosmetic dentistry also provides the added benefit of improving your general dental health. Overall, after a cosmetic dentistry procedure that improves your smile and boosts your confidence, you will enjoy a better sense of wellness.

In recent years, many new advancements and innovative techniques have come about in the field of cosmetic dentistry.Improvement in how the procedures are performed makes them much easier for both, the dentist and the patient. The new procedures have also served to enhance recovery time, and allow the patient to be more relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. Many of the procedures can also be performed in one day, sometimes in as little as a few hours.

Common Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Teeth whitening - one of the more common types of cosmetic dentistry, this procedure serves to whiten teeth that have been discolored from smoking, excessive consumption of beverages like tea and coffee, other tooth and enamel damaging food and drink, or poor oral hygiene.

A smile makeover - this is an exploratory approach that begins with a consultation to determine which cosmetic dentistry procedure(s)are recommended in order to improve an individual's teeth and smile.

Indirect fillings - also referred to as inlays and onlays, indirect fillings are designed to ensure a more durable filling. They are typically constructed from porcelain or other composite materials, and fashioned in a lab before being fitted into place in a person's mouth.

Dental veneers - made from composite materials or porcelain, veneers are bonded to a tooth that appears damaged or discoloured, preserving the appearance of the tooth and helping to prevent further damage. Veneers can also be used to remove a large gap between teeth.

Dental implants - dental implants are used to replace lost or damaged teeth. The artificial implants are typically fastened to the jawbone, and can help to restore and improve a person's smile and appearance, as well as enable the person to have a more comfortable bite. And now with computer guided dental implants, excellent results can be achieved in one visit to your dentist!

Composite bonding - somewhat similar to veneers, this procedure helps to repair and restore teeth that have been chipped or cracked, or suffer from decay. A composite material is molded around a cavity or damaged portion of the tooth, resulting in a more solid, smooth appearance.
