Cosmetic Dentistry Overview
A cosmetic consultation is done when we focus mainly on your smile, and ways to enhance it aesthetically. The consultation includes the following:
- A thorough examination and diagnosis of all the teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, temperomandibular joints, and extra oral tissue.
Veneers are porcelain coverings cemented onto natural tooth structure.
We use minimally invasive preparation techniques to ensure conservation of the natural tooth structure.
Veneers can be made very thin yet extremely durable.
The laboratory technician or ceramic artist creates the veneers to appear completely natural.
Dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry. Whitening restores natural tooth colour and bleaching whitens beyond the natural colour.
Bonding is the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin (plastic) to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discoloured tooth. Unlike veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require a customized mould to achieve a proper fit, bonding can be done in a single visit.
Lumineers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile.
