What is Cosmetic Dentistry?


Have you ever looked in the mirror and caught yourself wondering about improving your smile and what options are available to you?

Cosmetic Dentistry focuses on enhancing your smile using aesthetic techniques in order to improve the appearance of your smile.  These ‘Smile Makeovers’ help many patients gain confidence and self-esteem, allowing them to be comfortable within their own skin.

So, if you have stained, worn-out, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth or gaps in your teeth, then a Smile Makeover is the answer.

A Smile Makeover combines one or more cosmetic dental procedures where highly skilled cosmetic dentists work closely with you to design a treatment plan catering especially to your aesthetic needs.  Now, patients can choose from a number of cosmetic dental procedures, which are designed to improve the overall look of their smiles.

Still asking yourself What is Cosmetic Dentistry?  Then keep reading below to find the perfect procedure for you.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is an efficient and cost-effective way of brightening discolored and stained teeth. It can work wonders for your smile and can last up to a year or longer depending on your lifestyle habits.

ZOOM Teeth Whitening is an advanced whitening treatment that uses a special whitening gel and LED blue light to brighten your teeth in under 60 minutes and can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter.

While there are many DIY kits available to use at home, it is highly recommended that you visit a dental clinic for better results!

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding involves using a tooth-colored resin material to fix teeth that have excess spaces between them, are chipped, slightly crooked or unaesthetic. Keeping in mind the best suited tooth proportion, shape and color, dentists apply the bonding resin to the teeth to aesthetically reshape them, giving the patient a better overall smile!

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are permanently cemented on top of a tooth and due to the constant advancements in dentistry, they look and feel more natural than ever.  With proper care, porcelain veneers can last around 10-15 years and give you the bright, healthy and dazzling smile you’ve always wanted!


Crowns help restore a tooth to its normal shape, size and functionality. These are essentially “caps” that cover the tooth entirely. Often a great option for cracked, broken or weak teeth, crowns make the teeth stronger and improve the way they look.

Made up of materials with exceptional durability, strength and aesthetics, crowns can last up to 15 years!

Braces and Invisalign

If crooked or misaligned teeth are your reason to shy away from flaunting your smile, then orthodontic treatment of Invisalign or Braces can come to the rescue.

Braces use metal or ceramic brackets held together by wires and rubber bands which apply steady pressure over time to slowly move teeth into alignment and can improve the health and appearance of anyone’s smile – an adult or child!

Another great option is Invisalign which offers nearly invisible aligners, which are 3D printed and customized to fit your teeth, making them more comfortable and easier to wear.  It is also a removable option, so it works well for adults who want a discreet and aesthetic option for straightening their teeth which means you can have a beautiful aligned smile with people noticing nothing but just your beautiful smile!
