Smile enhancement can have dramatic effects on your overall appearance; even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from a basic colour correction to replacing missing teeth and everything in between.

Cosmetic Dental Fillings

Dentists no longer need to rely on unsightly metals (Amalgam Dental fillings) to replace tooth structure lost to decay, but use high density, state-of-the-art plastic (composite resins) and porcelain materials instead. These materials more naturally mimic the look, feel, and function of natural teeth and actually bond directly to the remaining enamel and dentin.

This means that the new dental fillings preserve more of the natural tooth so less repair work is necessary immediately and in the future. These modern dental filling materials are also more natural in appearance; it’s almost impossible to tell that your tooth has a dental filling.

Cosmetic Teeth Bonding

Bonding is a popular treatment option because it provides a successful attachment between the dental filling material and the tooth’s original enamel and dentin. It looks like the original tooth and functions like it as well. Direct dental composite bonding is used to recreate a smile in an additive manner, where little or no tooth reduction is needed. Direct dental bonding, in the hands of a skilled operator, is less costly than porcelain veneers and crowns and can be long-lasting with proper maintenance.

Tooth bonding is used in several different ways, but is probably most useful for repairing chipped teeth. Bonding materials (high-density, modern plastics called composite resin) and porcelain—are more natural in colour and can be designed to perfectly match the surrounding teeth making it difficult to discern there ever was a broken tooth.

Porcelain Dental Veneers

Porcelain dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or colour. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth.

To apply a dental veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed. This is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth.

Dental Porcelain Crowns

Dental porcelain can be sculpted to closely replicate the look of natural tooth enamel, while providing desirable strength and resilience. Dental Porcelain crowns are an excellent choice when recreating the form and function of a damaged tooth, because a crown basically replaces the entire external portion of the tooth down to the gum level. Crowns are not limited to simply replacing the original tooth, but can be designed to create an even better esthetic appearance.

Porcelain dental crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re-establish its original function and to create a natural appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. They are also an option for people who grind and clench their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised.
