Why Invest in Cosmetic Dentistry?
There is a number of reasons you might want to consider investing in cosmetic dentistry. First, cosmetic dentistry might give you a boost in self-confidence you need. If you are happy with your smile, you will feel more inclined to smile with your mouth open, be more outgoing or even feel more confident in your day-to-day life. Cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile that you find to be more beautiful. It can also encourage you to take better care of your dental health. This is because a healthy smile is required for all of our cosmetic dentistry treatments. Once you have your cosmetic dentistry treatment, you will enjoy the results so much that you decide to take better care of your smile daily so that the results last longer. These sound like great reasons to invest in cosmetic dentistry. Explore the cosmetic dentistry treatments in Edmonton that might be right for you.
Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Before we can give you a cosmetic dentistry treatment, we must first give you a dental exam. This is required because not all patients are a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. For example, if your smile is filled with cavities, decay and gum disease, cosmetic dentistry will do nothing to make your smile healthier. It’s like putting a brand new door over a broken door, instead of just fixing the door in the first place. We want to always give you a healthy and functional smile before we focus on the aesthetics. Therefore, our dentist will give you a dental exam to see if your smile is healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry. If it’s not, we will recommend the necessary treatments to help you become a proper candidate.
Professional Teeth Whitening
One of our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments in Edmonton is professional teeth whitening. This treatment is popular because it’s on the affordable side and the results are beautiful. Professional teeth whitening is made of a bleaching solution that has a higher bleach content than what is sold in over the counter whitening kits. As a result, it will produce more dramatic results. You can expect our professional whitening treatments to provide you with the white smile you are looking for. In addition, your treatment is monitored by our dentist who has years of experience with cosmetic dentistry treatments. Professional teeth whitening will give you even, white and safe results. Our dentist will not harm your teeth with your teeth whitening treatment. Give us a call to learn more.
Another popular cosmetic dentistry treatment we offer at our dental office in Edmonton is porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are the ideal way to achieve what most people consider a perfect smile. For example, they can straighten, whiten and reshape your teeth all with one simple treatment. The one downside of porcelain veneers is that they are on the pricier side of cosmetic dentistry. Some patients only require a few veneers to perfect their smile while other needs to cover all of their front teeth. Depending on your particular case, our dentist will recommend the needed amount of veneers for your smile. Veneers are long-lasting and provide results that would typically require multiple cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Whether you are missing a tooth or have a severely damaged tooth, restorative dentistry treatments are just as cosmetic as cosmetic dentistry treatments. For patients who have missing or damaged teeth, we can cover them with a beautiful dental crown that is crafted to look like their natural teeth. The dental crown is then placed over your damaged tooth or attached to a dental implant to replace your missing tooth to give you a complete and natural smile. We also offer natural-looking dental bridges to seal in the gaps of missing teeth in your mouth. Dental bridges are ideal for replacing single missing teeth. You can expect your smile to look, feel and function great.
For minor dental problems, our dentist recommends dental bonding to repair chipped, cracked or gapped teeth. Dental bonding is a composite material that can be used to cover minor flaws on the tooth or even reshape them to look more symmetrical or hide gaps. The only downside of dental bonding is that it typically only lasts for a year or two before it needs to be replaced. If you really like your results, you can achieve similar ones with longer lasting porcelain veneers.
Another cosmetic dentistry treatment we offer in our office is also a restorative procedure. Dental implants are a solution for replacing missing teeth by attaching restorations to your jaw. The dental implants act as an artificial tooth root that acts as the anchor for dental restorations to be attached to. Our dentist can replace your missing teeth using dental bridges, dental crowns, or even dentures. Depending on how many teeth you are missing and if you are a good candidate for dental implants, our dentist will recommend the best treatment option for you.
