A smile is important as it’s the first thing that people notice about you. For some people though, smiling is not an option because of cracked, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth. Does that describe your situation? Well, no need to worry as we have a solution for you. With our cosmetic dentistry services, you restore your smile in no time.
Our goal is not only to restore your smile but to maintain the integrity and health of your teeth. That’s why we offer different cosmetic services to cater to your specific needs. Furthermore, we have routine cleaning and checkups to ensure your teeth remain healthy.
Our services cater to all people regardless of your dental situation and they can benefit you greatly.
1. Brightens your teeth
Everyone has suffered from teeth discoloration at one point because of age and the foods we eat. However, as common as teeth discoloration is, you can beat it with the in-office teeth whitening treatment combined with routine cleaning.
Our Burlington dentist applies a peroxide whitening gel for 30 minutes to remove the stains and whiten your teeth. Laser light may be used to activate the gel for better results, and don’t worry the dentist will apply a protective gel on your gums for protection. Our in-office teeth whitening is safe, but you may experience slight teeth sensitivity.
You may need multiple teeth whitening procedures based on your level of staining.
2. Fix oddly-shaped teeth
Can you change the shape of your teeth? Yes. Our dentist can fix your oddly-shaped teeth with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin, wafer-like shells that can change the shape, size, color, and length of your teeth. These shells are bonded to your teeth surface with a special cement to restore the integrity of the teeth.
Apart from abnormally shaped teeth, our dentist can also use veneers to close up gaps, fix stained and discolored teeth, and chipped or broken teeth.
3. Repair a cavity
Whenever you have tooth decay, our Burlington dentist may recommend a root canal to remove it and stop the spread as well as save your tooth. A root canal procedure involves extracting the dead nerve, which leaves a space in your canal. A tooth-colored filling is placed on your cavity to protect your teeth and restore the function.
Rather than undergoing a painful tooth extraction, a dental filling can help save your teeth.
4. Fix cracked or chipped teeth
Although our enamel is strong, sometimes it can crack or chip because of poor dental hygiene, falls, and accidents. Cracked teeth not only cause teeth sensitivity but also offer a breeding environment for bacteria.
Dental bonding helps to fix the cracks and restore the function of the teeth. Our dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin to the teeth and harden it using a UV light. Unlike most dental procedures, bonding can be done in one dental visit and it takes 30 minutes. Furthermore, anesthesia is not needed unless you have decayed teeth.
You can also use dental bonding if you have misshapen teeth too.
5. Correct your smile
At Woodview Family Dentistry we offer orthodontic treatment to help correct your smile and dental appearance.
Orthodontic treatment involves the diagnosis and correction of misaligned teeth. We offer braces that shift your teeth one step at a time to attain the correct size and shape. Instead of the traditional braces, you can choose clear braces or aligners which are less conspicuous. The aligners work similarly as braces but are removable.
6. Protect your weak teeth
Tooth grinding and biting hard objects can weaken the enamel and affect the overall dental structure. Using dental crowns can help protect your enamel and keep the teeth healthy.
Dental crowns are covers fixed on your existing teeth to reconnect and hold the teeth together. You can also use dental crowns if you have decayed pulp or need to hold your dentures and bridges in place.
