Do you feel self-conscious when you smile? Cosmetic dentistry is here to change that. From porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns, to teeth whitening and dental implants, these professional dental procedures can transform your smile and give you a new-found confidence. Balmain Dentist has cosmetic dentistry solutions for almost everyone, so let’s take a look at your options.
For dental veneers, a cosmetic dentistry procedure; thin, custom-made porcelain pieces are placed above your actual teeth, and they look just like your actual teeth. It’s like a contact lens for the tooth. While dental veneers are not an ideal option for every patient, they are widely used in dental practice for specific purposes. In your first appointment, Dr. Flora Galoustian and team will ensure your teeth are ready for the veneers, and will determine which shade will look best for you. Come your second appointment, veneers will be applied to each tooth before your teeth are polished and your bite checked. That’s it!
When it comes to a chipped, cracked, crowded or discoloured smile, oddly-shaped teeth or gaps between the teeth –a comprehensive dental approach is always the answer. For broken or decayed teeth, porcelain crowns are often the best cosmetic and functional dental option. Think of a porcelain crown as a cap that covers the damaged tooth, and which looks entirely natural! First, Dr. Galoustian or a member of her highly-trained team will take an impression of the teeth requiring crowns before sending it to the lab. Before your crowns are fitted 1-2 weeks later, you’ll be given temporary crowns made from acrylic that mimic the tooth appearance.
Can’t go a day without several cups of tea or coffee? Then you’ll likely know that your little vice comes with a downside: stained teeth. Red wine and cigarette smoking can have a similar effect, as can dark foods like berries and chocolate. Unfortunately, no amount of brushing will get rid of the yellowing on your teeth, and a professional clean will help to a degree, but nothing will yield the same result as cosmetic dentistry, specifically professional teeth whitening. Philips Zoom teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by 8-15 shades in just one appointment, giving you the brilliant bright white smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Onto dental implants – the number one dentistry option for replacing single or multiple missing teeth, or even a full arch…no more old-school dentures! Surgically integrated into the jawbone, titanium dental implant bases work as though they are the roots of your teeth. After a 3-6-month healing period, supportive structures (abutments) are screwed into the implant bases. Crowns are then attached, and the replacement teeth fitted on top. The result? New teeth that unlike dentures, do not require removal, and which feel and work like natural teeth!
