Dental Bonding, Smile Enhancements, and More – Edmonton & Calgary, Alberta
Cosmetic dentistry entails a wide range of procedures aimed at correcting dental defects by improving the appearance of your teeth, gums and smile. The main objective is to give patients bright smiles that exude confidence. Popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include smile enhancements, dental bonding, teeth whitening, porcelain or zirconia veneers, Invisalign® clear aligner therapy and traditional braces or a combination of the aforementioned.
Most patients can be the right candidate for cosmetic dentistry. However, children below the age of 14 require a more detailed evaluation to ascertain their suitability in order to achieve the optimal outcome. If you need a cosmetic dental procedure to reduce gaps between teeth and match front teeth, dental bonding can be the answer. It can also improve the appearance of chipped or cracked teeth and removes spots caused by decay, cavities or developmental discoloration.

Who Is a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
As long as you are in good health and have had a dental consultation, most people can be candidates for cosmetic dentistry. Some of the dental issues that lead people to seek cosmetic dentistry are:
- Broken teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Worn teeth
- Overbite or underbite
- Receding gums
- Old fillings or crowns
- Chipped teeth
- Gum disease
- And more
Your particular dental treatment plan will be based on which issue or issues you are dealing with. Some typical cosmetic dentistry services include:
Smiles are an important part of everyday human interaction. If you are currently unhappy with the appearance of your smile and are embarrassed for others to see your teeth, we can help. Ask your nearest Dental Choice office what cosmetic services can enhance your smile and help you feel more confident in your overall appearance.
Treatments such as porcelain or zirconia veneers, dental bonding, tooth-colored fillings, Invisalign® clear aligner therapy and teeth whitening can be performed as part of a smile enhancement. Treatment is professionally designed and tailored to address each patient’s individual needs. Some individuals may need only one procedure to make over their smiles, while other individuals may require a combination of cosmetic treatments. Our goal is for each patient to have teeth that are whiter, straighter, and smoother.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Dental bonding can also be performed to reduce gaps or spaces between teeth and to change the color, size, or shape of teeth.
The procedure can be completed as quickly as one hour. After a tooth-colored dental resin is chosen to match the patient’s natural tooth color, the material is applied to the teeth and smoothed into the desired shape. Visible blue light is used to bond the material to the teeth. Once the resin is hardened, it is shaped further and then polished to a quality sheen.
Dental bonding is often a conservative solution for treating front teeth that need slight cosmetic repairs. To learn more about this cosmetic procedure, please contact our practice today.
Zoom®! Professional Teeth Whitening is a common cosmetic procedure for patients who desire a whiter smile with a very small investment of time. Zoom whitening is only available in-office due to the chemicals, system, and light used. We also have take-home trays available, which are made with a prescription-strength bleaching agent. Both treatments are very common and can provide improved results in certain circumstances.
Cosmetic veneers can correct some cosmetic concerns. They are placed over teeth to conceal imperfections including chips, crookedness, and discoloration. We offer both zirconia and porcelain veneers. Often in just two office visits, after a comprehensive exam, cosmetic veneers can give you a healthy new smile.
Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy
Invisalign® clear aligner therapy offers an effective way for patients to straighten their teeth, using virtually invisible clear aligners instead of convention metal braces. Impressions are taken of the patient’s teeth and bite and used along with Invisalign® 3-D computer imaging software to create a series of clear retainers. These retainers are worn in succession, each one for approximately seven to fourteen days until teeth are fully aligned. Invisalign® trays are easily removable so that patients can eat, brush, and floss as they normally would.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry can be beneficial for a number of reasons, including:
- Increased confidence: After you receive cosmetic dentistry work, you’ll no longer feel the need to hide your mouth or smile. It will help you feel more confident in social and professional settings, which will also lower your stress levels and help to improve your mood.
- Reduced pain: In addition to cosmetic dentistry having a positive impact on your physical appearance, it can also help to reduce your oral pain. Misaligned teeth can cause various pain symptoms, including jaw aches, headaches and muscle pain. With proper teeth alignment, these issues can be fixed.
- Promotes better dental health: Implants and bridge work can help to prevent gum disease and increase jaw bone health. Even teeth whitening can be an incentive to cut back on beverages known to stain teeth like coffee and soda, as well as smoking.
- Youthful appearance: Yellow and disfigured or misaligned teeth can make you look older than you really are. Correcting these minor issues will help to make you look younger. Even simply smiling more, which you will be more inclined to do with corrected teeth, can contribute to making you look young.
Questions to Ask at Your Initial Consultation
The first appointment you’ll have with a cosmetic dentist is an initial consultation during which the doctor examines you and treatment options are discussed. It’s good to go into the appointment with an idea of what issues you want addressed and what your budget may be. If there are any particular treatments that you want to discuss with the dentist, the consultation is a good opportunity to do that.
You should also consider asking the following questions:
- What are the benefits and risks of the recommended procedure?
- What are the estimated costs of the procedure?
- Which Board certifications do you hold?
- How often do you perform this procedure?
- Are you able to show me a preview of the results I can expect?
- Are there additional or alternative procedures or treatments you might recommend?
- Will I need a sedative or anesthetic for the procedure?
