Having a bright smile makes you beautiful. If your smile is marred by imperfections such as discoloration, chips, gaps, or cracks, it may be time to start looking for a cosmetic dentist as a solution. Cosmetic dentistry involves the usage of different procedures to change the way your teeth look, so that you can get the look you wish you were born with. If you’re on Vancouver Island, look no further than Courtenay Dental Health & Implant Centre for your cosmetic dental needs.
Cosmetic dentistry involves several different methods.
Veneers. These are porcelain shells that are fabricated to your teeth’s specific needs and bonded onto your teeth to fix its shape, color, and position to a degree. When placed over your teeth, it will not only look like it was perfectly formed from birth, but it will also provide the strength and resilience that a natural tooth should have.
Composite Fillings. This is a tooth-colored mixture that is used to restore decayed teeth. It can fill in holes left behind by cavities. The benefit of these fillings is that the material used mimics the aesthetics of real teeth, effectively erasing all damage that has been done to your teeth.
Inlays & Onlays. Like fillings, inlays and onlays are two methods that are used to restore your tooth structure after damage has been done to it. The different between inlays and onlays from composite fillings is that they are made in our office and then bonded to your teeth on the second visit. Inlays and onlays strengthen tooth structure when bonded and can last for a long period of time.
