How is cosmetic dentistry different from restorative or general dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to any type of dental treatment that is done electively to enhance the appearance of your teeth, bite, gums, and smile. A bright and beautiful smile can boost your self-confidence, especially if you have been concerned about the state of your teeth or gums for a while.
At Bayside Dental & Orthodontics, we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to help our Alberta patients look and feel their best. The most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures at our clinic include:
1. Teeth Whitening
A beautiful, white smile indicates youth and good health. But as we age, a combination of natural and lifestyle factors cause our teeth to lose their radiant shine that reflects this vitality. Thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry, we offer a range of teeth whitening treatments, including in-office bleaching and at-home teeth whitening procedures that can reverse the negative effects of consuming coffee, tea, soft drinks, and using tobacco.
2. Teeth Bonding
When you have chipped, broken, or discoloured teeth, we can apply tooth-coloured plastic putty referred to as composite resin to the surface of the damaged tooth. Bonding can be used to fill gaps between teeth, whiten them, and correct minor cases of decay. The composite resin material used is stain resistant and extremely strong and durable, so the result should last for several years with proper care.
Crowns, also known as caps, are placed over damaged teeth to create a normal appearance. They can be used to restore misshapen, fractured, or discoloured teeth, and in some cases, address issues of substantial structure loss. Compared to other cosmetic dental restorations, crowns have a superior life expectancy, but they are also more costly and time-consuming, often requiring two or more office visits.
4. Porcelain Veneers
Veneers refer to thin sheets of plastic or porcelain placed over tooth enamel to change the colour or shape of the tooth to improve uneven surfaces and correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, discoloured, or oddly shaped teeth. Although they’re time consuming, they offer superior colour stability compared to crowns, and last longer than tooth-coloured fillings.
