Of the facial features, it is our eyes and our smile that others will notice first - and what we notice first about others. This is a fact that most people are well aware of, if only on a subconscious level. It is this reason why we feel directly connected to our teeth. When teeth are dull and discoloured, misshapen, misaligned, chipped, or otherwise cosmetically impaired, we may not feel as confident as we deserve to feel.
Cosmetic dentistry, a niche that evolved long ago, provides multiple ways to enhance the smile for renewed confidence and improved personal image. For some patients, just having amalgam fillings removed and replaced with tooth-coloured ceramic or composite fillings provides ample improvement. For others, more in-depth procedures may be necessary.
Cosmetic treatment options help patients feel their best. Your smile is all your own, so the cosmetic dentist will work side by side with you to accomplish your personal needs and goals in the timeframe most suitable for you. Before moving into any treatment, your dentist will take into consideration the specific expectations of each patient as well as his or her facial features and complexion. Considering all factors and using all available methods will allow us to give you your best smile.
Teeth Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today. Professional Teeth Whitening options include both in-office and at-home treatments, each is safe and effective, providing long lasting results that far outperform what is possible with over the counter whitening products.
Tooth-coloured Crowns may also be used to bring a smile to a strong and attractive state. In fabricating non-metal crowns, the dentist will include the patient into the process through a consultation with the dental technician in which a perfect colour match can be achieved. In any restorative or cosmetic treatment, all teeth need to blend seamlessly.
Dental Veneers are also used quite frequently today. These thin shells are adhered to the front of a tooth or teeth to cover imperfections. A veneer may be used on a single tooth to hide a chip or break, or several may be placed to dramatically enhance the smile by covering misshapen teeth or discoloration that stems from the use of medication. Or to realign and straighten teeth without using braces.
We all deserve to feel very happy with the aesthetics of our smile. You can discuss with your dentist on how to achieve your cosmetic goals through cosmetic dental treatments.
