We have seen a dramatic increase in cosmetic dentistry over the past decade. People from all walks of life desire to have a beautiful and uniform smile.
Whether you require minor adjustments or major changes, cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. There are numerous treatment options available that can correct issues such as discoloration, chips, and crowding and improve your oral health.
Agape Dental Clinic Mill Woods offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, so you can enjoy a brighter smile and a more youthful appearance. Using a unique combination of science and artistry, Edmonton South Cosmetic dentists can redesign your smile, repair dental damage and improve your self-confidence.
Some of the Cosmetic Dentistry procedures are:
A dental implant replaces the roots of one or more missing teeth. This artificial tooth root is made from titanium metal and is surgically inserted into the jawbone. The implant serves as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
A crown also referred to as a cap, is a hollow, artificial tooth used to conceal a tooth that is damaged or badly decayed. A discolored or misshapen tooth can also be covered with a cap. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials including, porcelain, ceramic and metal. Crowns look and function like natural teeth.
A bridge also referred to as a “fixed bridge” or a “fixed dental prosthesis” is used to replace missing teeth due to trauma, gum disease, or untreated tooth decay. A bridge is a customized set of artificial teeth that are permanently cemented to fill the gaps in your smile.
Generally made of porcelain, veneers are thin custom shells that cover the front side of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are an ideal choice for improving your smile and are often recommended by dentists to quickly fix poor shape, small gaps, damaged teeth or discolouration.
Braces are the most common cosmetic treatment used to correct teeth that are crooked, crowded, or that stick out. Braces improve not only the look of your smile but your health as well.
Orthodontic Treatment – Invisalign
Invisalign is the most common cosmetic treatment used to correct teeth that are crooked, crowded, or protrude. Invisalign not only improves the appearance of your smile but also your oral health.
The Bioclear Method is a conservative technique which can be used for multiple purposes. It can be used to fill in black triangles between teeth that form as we get older, after Invisalign/braces, or gum surgeries. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth, fix chipped or broken teeth and build up small teeth.
Everyone loves to have a star bright white smile but due to age, smoking, or consuming too much tea, coffee, cola or wine, the teeth become discoloured. Your dentist at Agape Dental Clinic Mill Woods can discuss options with you to help you get your smile look whiter and less discoloured.
The procedures mentioned above vary in terms of cost, complexity, and results. Every patient is different and your dentist will create an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs and the condition of your teeth. It is critical to gather all the necessary information before a cosmetic procedure to ensure you are happy with your results.
