Cosmetic dentistry is a group of dental treatments that enhance the appearance of your smile by making changes to your teeth. Cosmetic solutions range from simple changes to a single tooth to whole-mouth treatments such as veneers.
Veneers consist of small porcelain shells that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. They are used to enhance your smile by making your teeth appear straighter and brighter.
Contouring is a procedure where small amounts of enamel are removed from a tooth to change its appearance. This treatment is used to make a tooth appear straighter, to increase spacing between teeth, and to remove discolouration or chips from your teeth.
Bonding is a reshaping technique often combined with contouring. Instead of removing enamel from your teeth, bonding involves adding a resin to a tooth to change its shape and appearance. Bonding is used to close gaps between teeth, cover imperfections, and make teeth appear more even.
Ceramic crowns are used to completely change the appearance of a tooth by placing a crown over it. Cosmetic crowns are designed to resemble natural teeth and they are shaded to match the rest of your natural teeth.
