Top Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. This is why many people are constantly looking for ways to obtain the perfect smile. Cosmetic dentistry can restore teeth that are missing, decayed, or damaged while also improving the overall aesthetics of your smile. The cosmetic dental treatment that is right for you is ultimately the treatment that will address your cosmetic concerns.

Because there is such a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments, many people don’t even know where to start when considering cosmetic dentistry.

To help you decide what the best cosmetic dental treatment is for you, here is a list of the 5 most popular cosmetic dental treatments:

Composite Fillings

Top Cosmetic Dental TreatmentsA composite filling is a dental filling made from composite resin. Composite resin can be colour matched so will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. To place a composite filling, the decayed tissue will first be removed, and the remaining tooth structure may be reshaped. Then the composite resin will be layered on until the cavity has been filled. The final layer will be shaped and polished to blend with the tooth. Composite fillings last about 5-7 years.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment used to remove stains from discoloured teeth. Teeth whitening procedures start with a teeth cleaning to remove any plaque or debris. Here at Teeth & Smiles we offer at home teeth whitening. The length of time it will take to see results will depend on the strength of the gel and how long you wear the whitening trays for. Most people see results within two weeks. Once completed it will be necessary to top your whitening up every 2-3 years to keep your teeth looking their best

Teeth straighteningTeeth Straightening

Teeth straightening procedures can help to improve the appearance of your teeth no matter your age. With an increase in the range of options available the team at Teeth & Smiles will be able to find a solution to meet your needs. It is important that no matter what teeth straightening procedure you have, you wear a retainer following treatment to ensure that your teeth do not move back to their original position.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jawbone to act as an anchor for a dental prosthetic such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are a popular choice for restoring missing teeth because they are extremely durable and have a natural appearance. To place a dental implant, two appointments about 3-6 months apart are usually required. This type of cosmetic dental treatment requires a longer recovery than other treatments. Once in place, dental implants can last 10-15 years, and some can even last up to 20 years.

Dental veneersVeneers

Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment used to correct misaligned, improperly spaced, stained, or unevenly shaped teeth. They are usually made from porcelain but can also be made from dental composite resin. Porcelain veneers require that a small amount of enamel be removed for their placement, however they last for 10-15 years.
