What is Cosmetic Dental Care?
Cosmetic dental treatments have the primary goal of making aesthetic changes to the teeth and gums.
If your teeth are discoloured, worn, broken, misaligned or have gaps between them, cosmetic dental procedures can change their colour and symmetry.
For many patients these treatments can make a significant difference when it comes to how they feel about their smiles.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure where your dentist bonds tooth-coloured composite resin to damaged, decayed, discoloured or gapped teeth to give you a more even, natural-looking smile. Your dentist will be sure to choose the composite resin that matches your natural teeth so that it blends in.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are applied to the front of your teeth. Their purpose is to change the colour or shape of your teeth. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces, or teeth that are chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective method of whitening teeth. This cosmetic treatment uses bleaching agents that are peroxide-based and designed to make the colour of your teeth lighter. With take-home treatment options, you may be able to lighten your teeth and help you get closer to your aesthetic goals for your smile.
