Full Smile Makeovers
Full Smile Makeovers with Edmonton Dentist
Investing in your smile can help you make a good impression and makes a great impact on your self-confidence. If discoloration, chips, misalignment, or outdated dental work are detracting from your smile, it may be time for a dental professional to conduct an assessment.
If you have more than one concern about your smile, a cosmetic dentist provides many treatments that can be combined for a full smile makeover. Even just a couple of cosmetic enhancements can dramatically improve the beauty of your smile.
Another way to enhance teeth is by replacing silver fillings with tooth-colored fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are matched to the surrounding color of enamel, and they provide an inconspicuous treatment for cavities. They require minimal removal of the dental structure since the fillings are bonded onto the tooth.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Many patients brighten their smiles with Zoom!® chairside teeth whitening. For best results whitening should be performed immediately after a routine cleaning. One in-office treatment with Zoom! can brighten teeth by as many as seven shades. After the dentist applies the gel, a specially designed light is used to activate the bleaching agent.
Porcelain veneers can completely transform the look of your smile. Veneers conceal the following superficial imperfections:
- Small Chips
- Permanent Discoloration
- Visible Wear
- Mild Crowding
- Minor Gaps
An impression of your teeth is obtained to customize these thin shell-like pieces of porcelain. Once crafted they are shade-matched to healthy teeth and securely attached to the fronts of damaged teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
These restorations are used to repair or replace teeth and are made from a ceramic material or a combination of ceramic and metal.
Dental Crowns are used to repair and protect teeth that have been compromised by injury or deep decay and are often placed after root canal therapy to complete treatment. Cosmetically, when a tooth is too damaged to receive veneers or bonding, high-quality, shade-matched crowns are used to restore both aesthetics and function to the smile.
A Dental Bridge replaces one or two teeth in a row and consists of a prosthetic held in place by two crowns. These crowns are securely attached to healthy adjacent teeth to provide function and a uniform look.
