Your smile is as unique as your personality. As we age, our teeth can show signs of everything from the foods we enjoy, to how active we are, and whether or not we listened to our dentist and practiced good oral hygiene and preventive dental care. But even with the best dental care routines, teeth are still susceptible to cosmetic damage and normal wear and tear over time. The dentists at Creditview Dental in Mississauga, ON offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services for everything from teeth whitening, to correcting common cosmetic problems like chips, cracks and sizing and spacing issues.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Mississauga, ON
Dentists use restorations like crowns and porcelain veneers to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth, but they are also used to improve function and strengthen damaged teeth from trauma or decay. There are several types of cosmetic restorations:
- Porcelain veneers and enamel bonding
- Cosmetic contouring
- Professional teeth whitening
- Enamel colored (white) fillings
- Gum grafting and recontouring ("gummy smile" treatment)
The main goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve size, shape, color and spacing for a more symmetrical and aesthetically attractive smile. Cosmetic contouring can change a tooth's size and shape with veneers or dental bonding, which use composite resin material to match the color and texture of a natural tooth. Professional teeth whitening treatments remove stains and discolorations and brighten the teeth beyond what is possible with over the counter products. Cosmetic bonding is also used to seal a tooth after a root canal in place of silver (amalgam) fillings. Dental crowns can restore a tooth after treatment for larger cavities and extensive tooth decay, allowing the dentist to save the remaining portion of healthy tooth from extraction.
