How Do I Know If I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
Do you have discoloured, broken, or missing teeth?
An imperfect smile can be hard on your self-esteem and can even impair your ability to bite and chew. Fortunately, there are some cosmetic procedures you can have done to restore your smile!
From teeth whitening to veneers, Westmount Dental Centre can help you decide which procedure can help correct your smile!
If you're wondering if you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry, here is a little about the different procedures and and the problems they can fix.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to any procedure that can restore the look of your teeth, gums, and bite. Cosmetic procedures are typically considered nonessential, but they can help restore both the look and functionality of your teeth and gums.
Here at Westmount Dental Centre, we do what we can to help you keep as much of your natural tooth as possible, while still correcting what you want to have fixed! Our trained professionals can help you come up with a treatment option to fix your smile!
Improved Oral Health
Not only can cosmetic dentistry improve the overall look of your teeth, it can also help restore functionality to your teeth and prevent further problems.
It's harder to clean the cracks and chips in broken teeth, so bacteria can settle in easily and lead to additional problems like sensitivity and tooth decay. When left untreated, you may find yourself with a toothache or a tooth that must be removed completely.
Taking care of these problems before they start can keep your overall oral health up to par!
Services We Offer
In addition to routine teeth cleanings and emergency services, we also offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures. Here are some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer at Westmount Dental Centre in Edmonton.
Teeth naturally turn yellow with age, but some other contributing factors to discolouration are some beverages, medications, and tobacco. If there's nothing wrong with the structure of your teeth and you simply want to lift surface stains and improve colour, a simple teeth whitening procedure can help!
If you have a cracked, chipped, or broken tooth, you can benefit from a tooth repair. This cosmetic procedure can restore functionality and make your oral care routine easier!
If you have a tooth that is beyond repair, a replacement may be in order. Dentures, bridges, and dental implants can restore functionality while looking like your natural teeth!
Veneers are porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth, improving their appearance and making them stronger. You may need veneers if you have broken, chipped, or missing teeth, especially if your front teeth are effected. You can have one or several veneers placed, depending on how many teeth you want to cover.
