Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of dental treatments designed to improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth, gums, bite or smile. Cosmetic treatments can enhance the look of your smile and ultimately increase your self-confidence.
At Fannie Bay Dental, our experienced dentists can advise the most suitable options based on your current concerns, desired outcomes and budget.
Some examples of treatments include:
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can lighten the colour of your teeth. This procedure is painless and risk-free. Some temporary sensitivity may occasionally occur.
Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which thin tooth-coloured porcelain or composite resin facings are bonded to the front of teeth. Veneers are more conservative than dental crowns and can be a good cosmetic dental option for patients with the following dental concerns:
- Gaps between teeth
- Stained or discoloured teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked, oddly shaped or misaligned teeth
Dental implants offer patients the opportunity to replace lost or missing teeth and greatly enhance not only appearance but also functionality. Implants can be used to replace single or multiple teeth.
Dental implants can help to prevent shifting, gum disease, and early wear of existing teeth.
Implants become securely anchored to your jaw as the jawbone heals and grows around the implanted metal post. The healing process varies for each person.
Once the implant has successfully bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post is attached to securely hold the new tooth in place.
A ceramic crown made to match existing teeth is finally attached to the securely anchored implant.
There is very little discomfort involved in the procedure and initial mild soreness can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications such as paracetamol.
Just like your natural teeth, dental implants require the same care including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
Contact Fannie Bay Dental for a consultation to determine your suitability for cosmetic implants and to discuss the process in-depth.
A custom-made dental crown fits over a prepared natural tooth and replaces the natural crown, which is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gums. Dental crowns can improve the appearance of a person’s smile and add strength, durability and stability.
