Cosmetic Dentistry


Cosmetic dentistry is used to refer to dental work that improves the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums and bite.
Cosmetic dentistry may include the following procedures.

  • The addition of a dental material to teeth or gums. For example, bonding, porcelain veneers (laminates), crowns (caps) and gum grafts.
  • The removal of tooth structure or gums.
  • The addition of a superficial root structure (implants)
  • Teeth whitening (bleaching).
  • Straightening of teeth accompanied by improvement in appearance of face (orthodontics).

  • Whitening

    Whitening or “tooth bleaching” is the most common cosmetic dental procedure. While many whitening options are now available, including over the counter products, dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedures for lightening discoloured teeth.

  • Tooth Reshaping

    Tooth reshaping removes parts of the enamel to improve the appearance of the tooth. Tooth reshaping is used to correct a small chip, to alter the length, shape or position of teeth or to correct crooked or excessively long teeth. The removed enamel is irreplaceable, and may sometimes expose dentin. It is also known as enameloplasty, odontoplasty, contouring, recontouring, slenderizing, stripping or sculpting. The procedure offers fast results and can even be a substitute for braces under certain circumstances.

  • Bonding

    Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like dental composite material is applied to a tooth’s surface, sculpted into shape, hardened and then polished.

  • Dental Bridges

    Dental bridges are false teeth, known as a pontics, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in areas left by missing teeth. Two crowns hold it in place, these are attached to adjacent sides of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out in the same way that partial dentures can. In areas of the mouth that are under less stress, such as the front teeth, a cantilever bridge may be used. Cantilever bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space. Bridges can reduce the risk of gum disease help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges require commitment to serious oral hygiene but may last up to ten years or more.

  • Veneers

    Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. They are an option for closing gaps or disguising discoloured teeth that do not respond well to whitening procedures. Depending on the procedure, tooth reduction may be necessary.
