There is no doubt that we all want our teeth to be clean, pain-free, and visually appealing. However, there are no shortcuts to achieve those healthy, pearly-whites. Brushing, flossing and making regular appointments for teeth cleaning and dental checkups with your Calgary dentist are basic oral hygiene practices that you should not neglect. In addition, if a flawless smile is your priority, you now have several options available through your Calgary cosmetic dentist. These can work to enhance the appearance of your teeth and fix any chips, cracks or gaps.
With cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, teeth whitening, Invisalign® braces, and so on, it is possible to alter the color, size or shape of your teeth, the amount of exposed gum tissue, and much more. In fact, you may be surprised by the number of treatments that could beautify your smile and improve your overall appearance. Your Calgary cosmetic dentist lists some of the options to explore.
Top Cosmetic Dentistry Options To Wear That Smile With Confidence
- Professional Teeth Whitening: Whether you want to get rid of stains or discoloration, or enhance the color of your teeth, professional teeth whitening treatments can help you achieve the shade of white that you desire. While there are several over-the-counter bleaching agents and products that you can use at home, the whitening treatment done at the dentists’ office will offer significantly noticeable results in a single session.
- Bonding: If you are looking to correct minor flaws, such as chipping, cracks or surface imperfections, consider the composite resin bonding treatment. Your dentist will use white filling material to mold it around your teeth and harden it using a special light. Due to its natural teeth-like appearance, the bonded surface is completely camouflaged with the rest of your natural teeth.
- Veneers and Crowns: When whitening treatments or bleaching agents do not work on enamel defect or discolorations, you have the option to choose veneers. Crafted from high-quality dental ceramic, veneers are thin shells that cover the front of your teeth to hide all surface imperfections. For badly damaged or decaying teeth, your dentist may suggest fitting a porcelain dental crown, or ceramic cap. Colour-matched veneers and crowns combine the best of cosmetic and restorative dentistry to give you the most natural-looking, perfect teeth.
- Braces or Invisalign®: Poorly aligned teeth may be one of the reasons that you don’t smile often or feel less confident of your appearance. Your dentist can straighten the misaligned teeth by fitting them with traditional, metal braces that push your teeth into the right position over a period of time. This relatively inexpensive option is useful in addressing complex alignment issues. However, the braces are not removable, and they do remain quite visible in your mouth, which may make you feel self-conscious. The advancements in dental treatments and technology now offer an alternative in the form of Invisalign. These clear, snug-fitting, removable aligners are almost invisible, but they apply the right amount of force to gradually straighten your teeth.
