Here are a few common cosmetic dentistry procedures: including using veneers to correct a tooth’s colour, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.

  • Veneers: A veneer is a thin laminate that is bonded directly to your teeth. A cosmetic dentist can use veneers to correct a tooth's colour, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.
  • Crowns: A crown completely encircles (caps) your tooth, protecting it and keeping it strong. Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, or pure white porcelain (to resemble a natural tooth).
  • Contouring: This procedure is used to reshape your teeth — correcting crooked, chipped or overlapping teeth. Teeth are carefully reduced and built up with laminate material until they are the ideal shape and size.
  • Bonding: Bonding is used to improve the appearance of your teeth, and to close gaps between teeth. A resin material is applied to your teeth and hardened using a special light.
  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular procedure. It allows us to remove or reduce stains on your teeth, lightening them for a more attractive appearance.

FAQs

What is the difference between a veneer and a crown?

A veneer is a thin laminate that is bonded directly to your teeth, and is used to correct a tooth's colour, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.

A crown is an artificial tooth that completely encircles (caps) your natural tooth. Crowns are often placed if your tooth has a significant amount of decay, or already contains several fillings. If you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, a crown is attached to the implant to mimic a natural tooth.

If I want white teeth, should I avoid red wine?
Red wine, coffee and tea are notorious for staining your teeth. Diet cola is also a problem, because its acidity breaks down your tooth's enamel — leaving it prone to stains. You don't need to avoid these beverages entirely — just be mindful of what they might do to your smile, and try to limit your intake.
Does my dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry procedures?
It depends on your coverage. We would be happy to help you understand your available coverage, so please ask us at your next appointment.
On TV, people get brand-new smiles in an afternoon — what procedure are they getting?
Veneers are often used on makeover shows, because they can improve the aesthetics of a person's smile very quickly, but the right course of action depends on many factors. Talk to us today about your options.
