Almost everybody suffers from discolouration of their teeth in various degrees. Even those that brush, floss and attend regular dental check-ups are susceptible to staining from food, drinks and the passage of time, which can affect the natural radiance of their teeth.
Professional teeth whitening can lighten and remove stains, creating a more youthful appearance.
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are used to recreate the natural look of teeth while providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Veneers can be used to reshape all kinds of deformations, including chipped, worn-down, cracked, crooked and misaligned teeth. The ceramic which forms the veneer can be made to look like tooth enamel, which means your new smile can be tailored to your cosmetic goals.
If you have a missing tooth or teeth one of the best ways to replace them is to have a dental bridge installed. A dental bridge is exactly what it sounds like – basically, two crowns are placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth in order to anchor a prosthetic tooth or teeth.
A composite (tooth coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
