Most patients seek cosmetic dentistry on the front, or anterior, teeth, as these are the most visible. Whether you have broken or discoloured teeth, our painless treatments can repair teeth and enhance your smile. This type of dentistry can be important for your self-esteem, but you should remember that it is elective and many dental insurance policies do not cover it.
The three most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry include:
Dental bonding refers to both the bonding procedure and the bonding material. Bonding is a surface application of a resin to repair teeth that have been chipped, damaged, misaligned or stained/discoloured. It can also fill gaps between teeth and holes from cavities. The goal of bonding is to cover imperfections while maintaining as much of the natural tooth as possible.
The dentist begins by buffing or sculpting the tooth so that the bonding material will have something to grip. He then applies a composite resin material (like putty) to the tooth, which he molds to fit the form of the tooth. Once the composite material is in the proper shape, the dentist subjects it to a “bonding light” that dries, sets and hardens the material. When the hardening is complete, the dentist polishes and smoothes the material, helping to improve or restore the patient’s smile.
Teeth can gradually become discoloured or darkened over time. This is a natural process, but one that many clients want to reverse. Dental bleaching will whiten stained or discoloured teeth and is effective for approximately 95 percent of the population. Our preferred method of whitening is dental supervised, as it is safer and more effective than other treatments.
To whiten teeth, the dentist applies a peroxide solution, which is stimulated by heat or heat combined with light. The solution rests on the teeth for 30-60 minutes. After rinsing off the solution, the teeth will be lighter although they may require multiple appointments to achieve desired whiteness. To maintain the crisp, white colour, the teeth will likely need to have touch ups every year.
Porcelain veneers provide a non-invasive, natural looking surface cover for chipped, stained, damaged or misaligned teeth. The dentist creates a very thin shell, or “veneer,” of porcelain and then bonds it to the front of the teeth. Although quite delicate on its own, the porcelain becomes very hard and durable once cemented to your teeth. It looks more natural than other bonded materials and will do a better job of resisting stains.
The procedure is relatively quick, usually taking only two appointments. Porcelain veneers greatly improve the smile and can have a major impact on promoting self-confidence.
