This will help keep your mouth and teeth disease free, and in overall good health. But what if you don’t like the colour or position of your teeth and want to improve your smile? A whiter, straighter smile can make one appear healthier and younger. Cosmetic Dentistry can correct Discolored, crooked, gapped or cracked teeth without braces. In most instances, cosmetic dentistry can create your new smile over the course of one or two painless dental appointments. Dr. Stewart Charchuk has corrected hundreds of smiles over the last 15 years using cosmetic dentistry. Our “smile correction procedures” continue to be a significant and satisfying service to our patients. At our Chinook Mall Family Dental Clinic we offer several treatments to give you your best smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Inlays and Onlays:
Crafted in a dental laboratory from porcelain or composite material before being bonded to your tooth, inlays and onlay provide a filling to a tooth that is too decayed or damaged to support a direct restoration such as amalgam or composite.
One of the simplest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures available. Composite bonding is when the dental material known as a composite resin is shaped and moulded on your teeth to give you a straight white smile. It’s mainly used to treat minor chipped teeth, gaps, and staining in feelings and teeth. The procedure is fast and simple and can be completed in one dentist appointment.
The Zoom Whitening Teeth System is a safe and effective treatment applied right in our South West Calgary clinic that whitens teeth in one appointment. The system is more effective than any take-home products, is quick acting, gives you noticeable results, and is long lasting.On average this non invasive procedure will whiten your teeth 8 shades brighter by using a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.Is it safe? Yes. Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available
Dental veneers are custom-made from porcelain or resin composite and are meant to change the colour, shape, size, or length of your teeth’s appearance once bonded in place. You can either receive veneers crafted from porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are created in a dental laboratory from a mould of your teeth. Composite resin veneers are bonded and sculpted on your teeth in the dentist office, usually in a single visit.
Also referred to as caps, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over your tooth to restore its natural appearance. They are used for the protection of a weak tooth that has suffered extensive decay or to hold a fractured tooth together. A dental crown can also restore a tooth that has been broken and support a tooth that has a large filling but not enough natural tooth left to hold the filling firmly. Crowns are made of several different materials each with its own benefits and price range. The materials available for crowns are stainless steel, metals like gold alloy and nickel, porcelain fused to metal, all resin, all-ceramic, or all porcelain. Dental crowns tend to be expensive so dentist usually only recommend them when other procedures are unlikely to produce satisfactory results. With proper care, dental crowns last for many years.
Dental bridges commonly referred to as partials are used to bridge the gap created by missing teeth. Bridges are made of alloy, porcelain, gold, or a combination. They feature two or more crowns that will replace the missing teeth. A dental bridge is supported by your natural teeth so any damage or decay of surrounding teeth can cause your bridge to fail and will need to be addressed. Bridges are permanent and can only be removed by your dentist.
A dental implant is a surgical procedure that involves drilling into your gums and implanting a fake root made of titanium into your jawbone. This will provide strong support for a permanent artificial tooth or teeth.
Full mouth Reconstruction:
Also commonly referred to as full mouth restoration. This procedure focuses not only on the aesthetics of your smile but also the function of your jaw, and it’s supporting structures. Things like your bite, muscles, and bone structure are analysed, and if corrective procedures are needed, they are recommended.
