Cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the smile you have always wanted with teeth whitening and other tooth coloured restorations. When you require cosmetic dentistry services in Sarnia, contact Lakeshore Family Dental. If you have a chipped or crooked tooth, we can restore it accordingly, to match it with your natural teeth. We can also help you with porcelain veneers which can be customized according to your need.
Bonding is a way to repair slightly chipped, discoloured or crooked teeth, by placing a white filling on your tooth to improve its appearance. The filings are available in various tooth shades and can bond well with your natural teeth. Therefore, some patients prefer bonding to fillings, as the bonded fillings are less noticeable than the amalgam fillings.
Bonding can be done on both the back as well as the front side of the teeth depending on the location and the extent of tooth decay. Bonding can usually be completed in one visit to our office. But, if your bonding does break or chip, please let us know. We can generally patch or repair bonding in one visit.
Veneers are used to improve the esthetics or help with tooth damage by placing a thin layer of porcelain over the front part of the tooth. It is visible during talking or smiling. Veneers can be placed directly or indirectly. In the direct technique, also called bonding, a composite resin is placed on the outside of the tooth using bonding.
Whereas, in case of indirect veneers the impression of your teeth is taken first. The veneers are then fabricated in a laboratory and are usually available within two to three weeks. Once it is available, your dentist will make it bonded to the teeth by removing the temporary ones. Veneers are not recommended for patients who have large fillings or little tooth structure. They are also typically recommended for the restoration of front teeth.
Teeth whitening is a safe and relatively painless procedure for most patients, where bleaching can be used to whiten stained and discoloured teeth. Whitening comes in strips, trays or in-office procedures. We offer a wide variety of options for you at our practice.
In-office bleaching procedures are ideal if you want immediate results. A special bleaching gel is applied to your teeth to whiten your smile. You also receive a take-home gel and instructions to maintain the bright smile which will last for years to come.
Tray whitening is a less-expensive and convenient at-home whitening treatment in which the results are more gradual. Maximum whitening results and a dazzling smile are achieved at the end of the set treatment period. An occasional treatment can be used to maintain the new smile.
Whitening strips can be available at the local store or dental practices. The dentist will have the best recommendations for your needs.
