We believe all smiles deserve to shine, and if you’re not satisfied with the way your teeth look, it can be easy to fixate on what you want to change. So if you’re looking for ways to improve your smile, keep reading!

What Makes a Perfect Smile?

They call it a “hollywood smile” for a reason – many celebrities undergo treatments to whiten, straight and enhance their smile. Let’s start off by saying that all smiles are beautiful, and each one is unique – which is a great thing! If you’re seeking ways to perfect your smile, start at the health of your teeth (more on this below). A solid foundation of healthy gums free from plaque and a daily routine of dental care helps with the longevity of your teeth, so you can keep smiling for decades! Focusing on your dental health is a great start to achieving the best version of your smile.

What Cosmetic Treatments Are Available to Have the Perfect Smile?

Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening is actually one of the most common aesthetic treatments requested to improve smiles. Professional teeth whitening is performed by our team in our clinic and is not to be taken home. After a complete oral health examination, one of our general dentists will ask you some questions to understand your cosmetic dental health concerns, and will then create a customized teeth whitening plan for you.

Dental Crowns

A tooth loses its structural integrity and strength when injured or affected by dental cavities. The damage can sometimes be extensive, and a straightforward dental filling may not be sufficient to restore the tooth. A dental crown is used to restore a tooth’s shape, size, strength, and function. A dental crown, or a tooth cap, encompasses the tooth and protects a compromised tooth from further harm. It ensures its stability and restores functionality.

Dental Veneers

If you truly want that “hollywood smile” like celebrities sport, you may want to consider veneer treatments. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells typically made from porcelain or composite resin, designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the natural teeth, providing a cosmetic enhancement to improve their appearance. Veneers can be used to cover severely discoloured and stained teeth, reshape teeth, close minor gaps between two teeth, and rebuild chipped, fractured and cracked teeth.

Dental Implants

Missing a tooth from an accident or from age? You can restore the aesthetic appearance of your smile with dental implants! A dental implant or tooth implant is a titanium screw placed within your jaw bone to replace the missing teeth. It also helps to support multiple false teeth, like bridges or dentures.

Alternatives to Aesthetic Dentistry Treatments

Regular Dental Cleanings + Examinations

Regularly scheduled dental cleanings don’t sound glamorous, but they are an incredibly important foundation for healthy gums and teeth. Our dental cleanings involve removing any plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gum line, polishing your teeth to remove surface stains, and flossing to remove any remaining debris. We recommend as a guideline to come in every 6 months for dental cleanings.

Keeping Up a Daily Routine

Compounded actions daily add up to make huge impacts! Daily brushing and flossing prevents cavities, plaque buildup, and keeps bacteria at bay. These simple tasks add up over the years, so be sure to talk to your dentist about your ideal oral health routine.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

We recommend consulting with your dentist before trying an at-home teeth whitening system. If you’re looking for ways to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home, we offer an easy to use whitening system available at our clinic. Opalescence Go™ prefilled trays are ready to use straight out of the box. The formula contains a powerful 15% hydrogen peroxide gel to effectively whiten teeth. Just wear it for 15–20 minutes daily for a more radiant smile in 5–10 days. Plus it’s vegan and certified gluten-free!
