Cosmetic or esthetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, bite and overall smile. Common procedures include teeth whitening, veneers, tooth-coloured fillings, and implants.
Bleaching is the simplest way to brighten your smile. Discoloration caused by food and lifestyle habits can be lightened to reveal a glowing smile. The bleaching solution is applied to the teeth and activated with a special light in the dental clinic. Alternatively, a bleaching gel is provided to you to be used with a custom made tray at home. Your teeth can become 5-6 shades lighter. Depending on your lifestyle, you may need to bleach periodically.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the facial surface of the teeth. It is ideal for heavy discolouration on teeth which doesn’t get corrected with bleaching, and for chipped front teeth. After thorough analysis and smile design, the outer enamel layer of the teeth is filed down, then an impression is taken and sent to the laboratory to fabricate your custom porcelain veneers which are bonded to your teeth.
