Turn Your Frown Upside Down – How the right Cosmetic Dentistry can change your life

With summer approaching, having a healthy and beautiful white smile paired with that summer glow is something we can help you achieve. As your Mississauga dentist, our goal is to inform and improve oral health in our community. We all know about the benefits of dental hygiene appointments but did you know that aside from esthetics, a beautiful smile can also improve your oral health and your overall wellness? When we discuss dental esthetics, it can be as simple as closing a gap, changing the size and shape of a single tooth, to more involved procedures such as Invisalign, veneers, and crowns.

Have you ever thought about what you can do to improve your smile? Your smile is your best accessory and with even just a little cosmetic dentistry, it can improve. We will discuss the various ways you can improve your smile from simple bonding to more advanced procedures such as orthodontic treatment and implants. A smile journey begins with an idea and a potential. Let Credit River Dental Centre join you on your smile journey so we can educate you on your potential to turn your frown upside down and see how the right cosmetic dentistry can change your life.

Closing the Gap

Do you have a slight gap between your front teeth or any of your teeth that’s visible? Even closing the slightest gap can make all the difference. The beauty of cosmetic dentistry in 2024 is the availability of some fantastic dental materials. Having the right materials paired with the right technique can ensure a beautiful, lasting smile. Closing the gap can be done with dental bonding but depending on the state of the pre-existing tooth and the gap size, dental veneers and dental crowns may be an option as well. Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way and closing a gap may be just a simple appointment that yields huge results. To learn more about dental bonding click here.

Missing Teeth

A missing tooth can certainly affect the appearance of our smile depending on its location. Not only are missing teeth not ideal from an esthetic point of view but also from a functional one. Missing teeth can affect all adjacent teeth and depending on its location, can affect your bite and function. To replace missing teeth, implants are still the gold standard and are the best option because none of the surrounding adjacent teeth are affected. To learn more about dental implants click here. Replacing only one missing tooth can make all the difference.

Straighter Teeth

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t only crowns, veneers and more extensive dental treatment. All you may require is a quick, short term orthodontic treatment to straighten some slightly misaligned teeth. Treatments can sometimes be as short as only 6 months. With treatments such as Invisalign, you can achieve your perfect and natural smile without anyone even noticing. A short treatment for a big lifetime change is well worth it. Not only will you have a beautiful, straight smile. It will improve your resting bite and allow for easier home care. It is much easier to clean your teeth at home when they are properly aligned. You’ll be able to floss easier and access areas better with your toothbrush. This will minimize your periodontal disease risk and help keep your smile healthy. To learn more about Invisalign, click here.

Whiter Teeth

As we age and as time passes, teeth will often get stained as a result of daily use and our food intake habits. An easy way to obtain a beautiful and youthful smile is with whitening. With various whitening treatments on the market, it is best to discuss your thoughts about whitening with your dental professional. It’s important to note whether or not you have any kind of sensitivity and its location, if you have any anterior fillings and, or other restorative work such as crowns, bridges, or veneers because restorative material will NOT whiten. It is also important to think about whether or not you prefer an in-office treatment or treatment that you can do on your own time at home. If you’re interested in whitening, it is also important to discuss some post-whitening instructions that need to be followed to ensure that your treatment is successful whether you do your treatment in the office or in the comfort of your own home.

Advanced Restorative Treatment

Sometimes simple treatments aren’t the answer and it is necessary to do more advanced treatments or a combination of advanced treatments. These can include but aren’t limited to veneers, crowns, bridges, and implants. Through a series of measurements and considerations such as your bite, whether you’re a mouth breather or not, your tongue position, your gingival condition, etc., your dental profession will be able to determine which combination of treatments or treatment is right for you. At Credit River Dental, we strive to ensure we consider factors that will give you the best longevity when we design your smile.
