Types of cosmetic dentistry
At Dr. Harry Sangha’s office we strive to give you a smile that you will be proud of. If you have crooked, chipped or missing teeth, discolouration, unsightly gaps, or other issues that are stopping you from showing off your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help. Here are a few of the procedures that we happily offer:
A dental crown is a permanent cover for a decaying, weak, broken or badly misshapen tooth. The crown replaces the tooth at the gum line in order to restore its shape and appearance. They may also be used to replace an extremely discoloured tooth. While crowns can achieve many cosmetic issues related to appearance, they should only be used when necessary.
Veneers are different from dental crowns in that they are a purely a cosmetic procedure. In order to cover discolouration, gaps or inconsistencies in size or shape, very thin slices of ceramic are cemented onto the front of the teeth. They are custom-made for each patient, to ensure that each individual receives a beautiful, perfect smile.
One of the most common issues people have with their teeth is discolouration. Our teeth put up with a lot, and sometimes it shows. A simple bleaching procedure can drastically improve your smile and your confidence.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a durable plastic material is bonded to the tooth through use of an ultraviolet light or laser. It’s a simple and relatively inexpensive procedure which can help to change the shape of teeth, repair cracks or chips, lengthen teeth, cover discolourations, fill gaps and more. Generally, dental bonding is recommended to repair small cosmetic issues, since the material is not as strong or permanent as veneers or crowns.
