Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile is important and one of the first things others notice about you. We can help you get the smile you have always wanted through through gum re-shaping, aesthetic veneers, BOTOX® or whitening.

There are smile design principles that influence the overall aesthetic impact of a patient’s smile. The relationship between facial aesthetics and function, types of restorations exhibit different properties & produce different effects, as well, shape and proportion can all play a part in the outcome of designing your ideal smile.

Understanding how all these principles work together are a Prosthodontists area of expertise. We will discuss your smile design goals and provide a plan for the most aesthetic outcome.

BOTOX Cosmetic

BOTOX Cosmetic® is an approved, safe prescription drug which is used both cosmetically and therapeutically.  As a cosmetic treatment, it will reduce or minimize facial wrinkles in the area(s) it is applied giving you that rested, refreshed appearance. Therapeutically, Botox can reduce the intensity of clenching; a habit which leads to TMJ pain, headaches, tooth fracture and overall facial discomfort.

The treatment involves very tiny injections into the muscles under the skin in order to temporarily relax the muscles. This will prevent the muscles from fully contracting, and thus will minimize the creasing / folding / wrinkling of the skin in the treated area.

Laser Dentistry

What are specialists currently using lasers for? These devices have been proven to help in the detection and treatment of oral diseases. They can be used for treating gum disease, detecting cancer, and pinpointing tooth decay in its early stages. They can precisely remove tissue, seal painful ulcerations like canker sores, and even treat small cavities. In the future, dental laser technology will undoubtedly find even more applications.

It’s hard to imagine anything more appealing than a sparkling, white smile. Yet our teeth rarely stay as white as we’d like them to without a little help. Fortunately, that help is available at the dental office.

Teeth whitening done in a professional dental setting is a safe, effective way to brighten your smile. It’s also perhaps the most economical cosmetic dental procedure. Depending on the whitening method you choose, results can be dramatic: in-office whitening, for example, can lighten teeth three to eight shades in a single hour.

Professionally supervised whitening will work faster, and protect sensitive gums and tooth-root surfaces better, than over-the-counter whitening products.

Laser Gum Contouring & Shaping

Even if a person has straight, healthy, and symmetrical teeth, the beauty of their smile may be diminished if the gum line is uneven or falls too far below the lip line. Often referred to as a “gummy” smile, it can make the teeth look small and cause people to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smiles.

Ideally, the gums should appear even and smooth, and should act as a frame to complement a person’s smile, rather than as a distraction from it. Fortunately, a gummy smile can now be corrected with procedures such as gum contouring.

What makes a smile beautiful? That’s a complex question, but some qualities of a lovely smile are immediately identifiable: good tooth colour, shape and alignment are a few of the most important ones. If your teeth could use improvement in any of these categories, porcelain veneers could be just what you’re looking for.

You may already know that a veneer is a thin covering over another surface. In dentistry, a veneer is a wafer-thin layer of super-strong porcelain that convincingly substitutes for natural tooth enamel. When bonded to your teeth, veneers can create a natural-looking, beautiful new surface. That’s because dental porcelain, like natural tooth enamel, is translucent and tough. But it doesn’t stain like tooth enamel does.
