What is Cosmetic Dental Care?
Sometimes, patients will ask about what aesthetic changes can be made to their teeth and gums. These services fall under the umbrella of cosmetic dental treatments.
Are your teeth worn, discoloured, misaligned or broken? Perhaps they have gaps between them. If so, cosmetic dental procedures can change their symmetry and colour.
For many patients, these treatments can have a significant impact on how they feel about their smiles, and help to boost their confidence.
If you're seeking a safe, effective way to whiten your teeth and would prefer a dentist perform or supervise the procedure, professional teeth whitening at our office may be for you. Teeth whitening uses peroxide-based bleaching agents that are designed to lighten the colour of your teeth. With in-office and take-home treatment options, you may be able to enjoy a lighter, brighter smile.
A dentist can apply these thin pieces of porcelain to the fronts of your teeth to alter their shape or colour. These restorations are often used on teeth that have uneven surfaces, or teeth that are chipped, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, crooked or discoloured. An impression of your teeth will be taken to ensure your veneers will fit precisely. They are constructed to look and feel like natural teeth.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure where your dentist bonds tooth-coloured composite resin to damaged, decayed, discoloured or gapped teeth to give you a more even, natural-looking smile. Your dentist will be sure to choose the composite resin that matches your existing teeth.
Our dentists can develop a comprehensive treatment plan that consists of a variety of dental procedures available at LightHouse Dental Cobourg. This customized plan allows us to complete all the dental procedures you need in fewer appointments.
