Depending on your unique needs and oral health, there are a number of cosmetic procedures that can help to improve your smile. Procedures include dental implants, dental veneers, Invisalign, orthodontics and teeth whitening.
Missing teeth can be a very noticeable problem to have with one’s smile. Even if the missing teeth are not in the front they can still cause difficulty in eating and speaking. Furthermore, healthy teeth surrounding the area of the missing tooth or teeth are more prone to cavities and periodontal disease.
It is always best to keep your natural teeth if possible but what if your teeth are badly stained, chipped, worn down or irregularly shaped? Dental veneers can greatly improve the appearance of your smile while leaving your natural teeth intact.
Veneers are very thin custom made shells which are bonded to the front of your teeth. They can be made from either porcelain or resin. The advantage of porcelain is that they look slightly more natural. Resin on the other hand requires less removal of the tooth surface before it is bonded.

The main advantage of metal braces is that they do a slightly better job for people who have very crooked teeth. Metal braces are also less expensive.
Invisalign (or clear braces) works well for most people to straighten their teeth and it has the advantage of being more discreet. Many adults wishing to straighten their teeth find the idea of “invisible” braces more appealing.

As we get older, the colour of our teeth naturally starts to darken. With more and more people living longer lives and retaining their youth much longer than people did only a generation ago, it is little wonder that we want our teeth to retain their youthful appearance as well.
Before having any whitening procedure it is important for our dentist to examine your mouth and determine whether the procedure will actually be helpful. This is especially important if you already have crowns or implants.
While there are many teeth whitening products on the market, the best and longest lasting results still come from in-office professional cosmetic dentistry.
There are two main types of teeth whitening: vital bleaching and non vital bleaching.
Vital bleaching is done on teeth that are “alive” and can be used to remove stains caused by food and tobacco or to whiten teeth that have darkened due to age.
Non vital bleaching is done when a tooth as turned grey because of a root canal. It is a way of lightening the tooth from the inside out.
