Cosmetic dentistry treatments are designed to beautify your smile. Undeniably, having whiter, straighter teeth can enhance your appearance and even increase your confidence. Here at Heritage Dental Centre, we offer several cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve your smile. Many of these have restorative effects as well.
Here are some of the treatments we provide and their cosmetic benefits.
Veneers are an excellent option if you want to improve the appearance of your front teeth. The procedure to apply them involves using thin pieces of tooth-coloured composite resin or porcelain that get glued to the selected teeth. They blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth and will give you a whiter, more uniform smile.
Dental veneers are long-lasting and can be used to repair discoloured, chipped, crooked, gapped or irregularly shaped teeth.
This treatment is a good option if you want to remove surface stains or reverse the natural yellowing of your teeth. Professional whitening services produce more effective results than over-the-counter alternatives because they use a more potent whitening agent.
We offer bleaching treatments at our office or custom whitening kits if you want professional results at home.
This treatment can be lengthy but worthwhile if the position of your teeth and jaw are affecting the appearance of your smile. Dental appliances, most commonly braces, will be used to shift and improve your teeth’ alignment slowly.
Orthodontic treatments can be employed to reposition crowded or gapped teeth, as well as correct jaw irregularities, such as an underbite, overbite or open bite.
Invisalign, a type of clear, removable aligner, can be used to straighten your smile. This treatment option is a discreet alternative to traditional braces. The procedure involves taking a digital scan of your mouth and using it to create a series of customized aligners. Every few weeks, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners, which must be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. Over time, your teeth will slowly shift over to an ideal position.
