A great smile gives us confidence, offering an instant boost to our self-esteem. If you are hiding your smile, or feeling self-conscious about how your teeth look, then cosmetic dental treatment may help you share your smile freely again. Cosmetic treatments can whiten your smile, fill spaces and gaps in teeth, repair cracks or chips, and reshape teeth.
New techniques and technologies in cosmetic dentistry make it affordable and easy for you to get the smile makeover you have always wanted.
If you have missing teeth, you may have difficulty chewing and eating your food. Perhaps you have switched to softer, easier foods to chew and swallow, which means missing out on your favorite meals. Dentures may be an option, but for some, dentures are uncomfortable, don’t fit snugly, or cause sore gums. If you are experiencing any of these issues, dental implants may be the solution.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are secured tooth replacements, so they look and feel like real teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth, and don’t want a partial denture, this may be a viable option for you. You can chew and eat normally again, without difficulty or worry.
A denture implant is exactly the same procedure as a dental implant, except that once your jawbone and gums surrounding the implant are healed, the dentist places a removable overdenture on the implants instead of a crown to improve overall comfort, fit and help improve your ability to enjoy the foods you miss.
During the dental implant procedure, the dentist inserts a titanium root into your jaw, to act like the root of a tooth. A temporary, transitional abutment is attached to the top of the implant, which will cover it while your jawbone and gums heal. Once your jaw bone and gums have allowed enough time for healing, the dentist will permanently affix a new crown or overdenture to the implant.
Eating your favorite foods should be a pleasure, not a worry. Contact us today to schedule your consultation to see if dental implants or denture implants are right for you.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin laminates of porcelain that are bonded to the front of a tooth and provide the most aesthetic smile makeover solution. The veneers allow us to change the colour and the shape of your teeth.
Dental bonding veneers perform the same function as a porcelain dental veneer, but it is a more cost-effective solution. Tooth bonding uses white fillings that are bonded to the front of a tooth, coloured and shaped to match your tooth.
Remember: Dental veneers and dental bonding are not as strong as the original enamel on your teeth. Chewing hard substances like ice cubes or rock candy, or using your teeth to rip open plastic bags or chew pens can damage veneers and dental bonding.
Dental veneers and dental bonding are some of the best solutions cosmetic dentistry has to offer for improving the appearance of teeth.
Discoloured or stained teeth can make you hide your smile. But our professional whitening systems work magic as they brighten discoloured teeth. This treatment is not only effective, but it is also easy to apply and use.
And with the custom teeth bleaching kit we provide, there is no need to come into the dental clinic for a teeth whitening application; you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home.

Do you remember when your only choice for a tooth filling was a silver-coloured shiny filling? If you needed a filling near the front of your mouth, you couldn’t hide it, but you could hide your smile.
Now there are other options. A white filling is a tooth-coloured composite resin material, made to match your tooth so it’s almost impossible to see the filling – your smile appears clean and natural. And with this resin compound bonding to the enamel of your teeth, the seal is tighter and the restored tooth can be stronger than ever before.
If you have an existing filling that needs to be replaced, or you need a new filling, talk to our dentist about using a white filling. No one will know you had a filling – and we won’t tell.
Call us today to discuss how a few small and simple changes can make a drastic difference in your smile.
