Cosmetic dentistry includes dental treatments that have the goal of improving the appearance of the mouth, teeth, and smile. Certain procedures also provide restorative benefits and promote oral health. At Rosedale Dental Care, we offer several services, both simple and complex, to give you a more beautiful smile in Brampton.
Inlays and onlays are also known as indirect fillings because they are made in a dental laboratory before they can be placed on a tooth. They are often used when a tooth has mild to moderate decay but can also be used to restore a damaged tooth. They help to strengthen teeth, restore their shape, and avoid further damage from decay or deterioration. They are preferred over dental crowns because they preserve more of the tooth structure.
To address small imperfections in the teeth such as chips, cracks, crooked teeth, damaged enamel or gaps, dental veneers can be an effective treatment. These are made in a dental laboratory, usually from medical-grade ceramic, and are applied to the front of the teeth with a dental adhesive to change their appearance.
One of the most basic and most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, professional teeth whitening treatment provides much more dramatic results than any over-the-counter treatment such as gels or strips. The teeth will usually be cleaned first before the whitening solution is applied. The active ingredient in the solution, hydrogen peroxide, can effectively whiten teeth that have been stained by food, drinks, medication, and personal habits like smoking.
Bonding refers to the application of composite material to the tooth’s surface. It is used to repair decayed, damaged, or discolored teeth. It can also be used to build up teeth that have been worn down. Composite bonding resembles the color of tooth enamel, creating a natural-looking restoration. It is one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedures and is very versatile in its uses.
If you have missing teeth, we offer several options in tooth replacement. Bridges and dentures have long been a popular option for restoring the look and function of the teeth. For a more stable option, dental implants are also available. They are more expensive but feel more like natural teeth.
