What is cosmetic dentistry?

Traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and oral diseases. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance and aesthetics of your smile. Cosmetic treatments aim to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums and/or bite. These procedures enhance dental aesthetics in colour, position, shape, size, alignment and overall appearance, creating a balanced, symmetrical and pleasing smile. Common cosmetic dental services include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and white composite fillings.

Advantages of cosmetic dentistry:

White composite fillings:

At Vitality Oral Health, we want your fillings to be both functional and natural looking. Composite filling materials are made of strong and durable resin polymer materials and their matrix is reinforced with nano-hybrid glass ceramics, increasing the wear resistance and compressive strength of the material. Fillings made of this mixture are used for restoring decay and for cosmetic improvements as they change the colour and shape of a flawed tooth. We can create a filling that is matched to the shade of your teeth, so your fillings will blend seamlessly into your smile. Composite materials chemically bond to the surface of the tooth like an adhesive, making it possible to preserve more of your natural tooth structure. These fillings also help to prevent sensitivity.

Porcelain veneers:

Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade porcelain, custom created from an impression taken of your teeth. These thin, strong shells adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth, concealing a wide range of cosmetic flaws (chips, cracks, discolouration).

What conditions can veneers repair and/or treat?

Porcelain veneers can be used to:

Teeth whitening:

As we age, our teeth tend to darken. At any age, the colour of your teeth may be altered by an accumulation of stains from smoking or eating and drinking certain foods like coffee, red wine, and more. Professional teeth whitening quickly, dramatically and safely lightens the shade of your teeth and brightens your smile. In-office tooth whitening procedures take about one hour to complete and are done by a dental assistant or hygienist.
At Vitality Oral Health, we help you create the smile you desire through the use of a variety of cosmetic dental treatments. Call us today and start the journey toward your best smile!
