Cosmetic dentistry brings together a set of techniques aimed at improving the aesthetic appearance of your mouth. It includes, in particular, teeth whitening or lightening treatments, veneers, crown or bridge placement, dental bonding or any other procedure aimed at restoring the patient's smile.
One of the most well-known cosmetic dentistry techniques is tooth whitening. It can be done directly at the chair in our clinic, or at your home. If you choose to do this in the chair, you will only need one appointment as the gel applied to the teeth is more potent.
If you wish to do it at home, we will provide you with a whitening kit and all the explanations required for the treatment. In both cases, we will first carry out an assessment to verify that your dental condition does not present any contraindications to treatment. We will then take your mouth impressions to make your personalized aligners.
The veneer is a prosthesis that is placed on a chipped, worn or discolored tooth. It thus makes it possible to treat the appearance of damaged teeth, but also fractures or certain defects related to the positioning and size of the tooth. Very thin, it achieves very good results, while offering the advantage of preserving as much dental tissue as possible.
The dental bridge
The conventional dental bridge is a fixed partial denture that can fill the space of one or more missing teeth. It cannot therefore be removed.
Unlike an implant, it must rest on the adjacent teeth (the abutments). There are several other types of bridges: the butterfly bridge and the California bridge. These are supported by fins or inlays fixed on the adjoining teeth. The butterfly bridge is however less strong in the long term than the conventional and Californian dental bridge, but it can be used very well in specific places of the mouth.
Tooth bonding is used to repair splinters, fractures, discoloration, decay or other damage related to the appearance or structure of the tooth. It is easier, less expensive, and generally faster than the veneers that need to be fabricated. Dental bonding can be done in one visit and usually does not involve anesthesia unless the tooth is severely decayed. The resin used for bonding generally lasts for several years, but is not as strong as the natural materials of teeth.
