When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, many people come to us unsure of what they want or need to show off a brilliant smile and maintain great oral health. We’ve put together a list of the most common queries our patients have for us. Read through below to discover how we can help you show off a sparkling look!

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses procedures that enhance the appearance of your smile.

What Procedures Are Involved in Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry can include teeth whitening, dental implants, tooth-coloured fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges or our many orthodontic options such as Invisalign®. Some will restore the function of your teeth while at the same time improving the way your smile looks.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?

You might be wondering if cosmetic dentistry fixes crooked teeth, receding gums and bite problems. These services can address damage to your smile, take years off of your appearance and restore the full function of your bite. You’ll likely also feel a boost to your self-esteem!

What Are the Ways to Pay for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cost is always a factor when it comes to healthcare, and dentistry is no different. Private Health Insurance may partially cover restorative measures such as crowns or fillings or Invisalign® may be covered under orthodontics. We can work with you to create a financial plan that will fit your budgeting needs while giving you the outcomes desired.

What’s the Difference Between Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry?

General dentistry includes routine checkups and smaller procedures such as a root canal, designed to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Cosmetic dentistry, however, is focused on the appearance of your teeth and enhancing it.

What Are the Common Forms of Cosmetic Dentistry?

The cosmetic dentistry procedures that our patients choose most often include teeth whitening, dental veneers, crowns, dental implants, white fillings and Invisalign®. What you’ll have depends on what is right for your situation and wants.
