A smile says a thousand words! If you have crooked or discoloured teeth, you may feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your smile. At UDental Clinic, we want all of our patients to feel confident about their teeth. Our cosmetic dental services can help.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about helping you look great—it’s about helping you feel great! Through whitening, braces, veneers, and bonding, we can give you the smile of your dreams. When you meet with one of our dentists, we can design a treatment plan that helps you achieve your smile goals.
Interested in learning more about our cosmetic dental care services? Here’s a bit more information about some of the treatments we offer at our clinic:
Are your teeth stained or discoloured? Coffee, tea, red wine, and soda can all stain your teeth. We offer professional teeth whitening to get you the gorgeous, gleaming smile that you have always wanted!
Maintaining a bright smile can help you look younger and healthier. But as we age, our teeth naturally darken. When you visit our dental office, we can discuss the best methods to improve the colour of your teeth. Our professional teeth whitening services are safe and effective. They can brighten your smile by several shades in just a few treatments.
In-office whitening is a perfect option for patients who want fast results with little hassle. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in our office. We apply a special whitening gel to your teeth, then use a light to activate and accelerate the whitening agent. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes and we can repeat it until we achieve your desired shade!
Take-Home Whitening Kit
If you are looking for a more affordable way to whiten your teeth on your own time, we’ve got you covered. A take-home whitening kit is the perfect option for you! Our patients love the convenience of whitening their teeth in their own homes.
We begin by taking impressions of your teeth, which helps us create your custom whitening trays. These trays will adhere precisely to your teeth and hold the whitening gel that bleaches the stains on your teeth.
The whitening products that you find at drugstores leave a lot to be desired. They may cause increased sensitivity or improperly fit your mouth. With our professional teeth whitening, we’ll design whitening trays that perfectly fit the contours of your mouth.
During your consultation, we will instruct you about how long to wear the trays. Most people see results in 1-2 weeks. Our take-home kits are easy, convenient, and effective. You won’t need to leave the house to get a whiter, brighter smile.
Are your teeth worn down or badly chipped? Would you like straighter teeth, but don’t want the time commitment of orthodontics? Do you have deep stains that professional whitening does not address? Porcelain veneers may be a perfect fit for you.
Dental veneers fit over your natural tooth like a shell. They cover most flaws to create a brand new, beautiful smile. These durable porcelain shells will look like totally perfect teeth. They can correct stains, crooked teeth, or chips.
Veneers are long-lasting and highly durable. You can take care of them the same way you would your natural teeth. With the proper maintenance, they can last over 10 years. You can use veneers to repair minor damage or cover imperfect teeth. With porcelain veneers, you’ll feel confident whenever you flash your smile.
Living with damaged teeth impairs your ability to chew and speak comfortably. If you have broken or discoloured teeth, a porcelain crown can restore their functionality and improve their appearance.
Porcelain dental crowns are custom caps that are designed to blend in with your natural teeth. They will help protect any teeth with cracks and can replace large fillings that discolour your teeth. We’ll design your crown to blend in with your surrounding teeth, so no one will know you’ve had work done.
With a porcelain crown, you can shield sensitive teeth from hot or cold temperatures. This reduces the pain you may experience when drinking or eating food.
Dental crowns are often used to support a tooth that has a deep cavity or has undergone a root canal. In addition to repairing decay, porcelain crowns also restore the appearance of a damaged tooth, since they cover a large surface area.
Crowns improve the functioning, protection, and appearance of damaged teeth. One of our dentists can meet with you to create a crown that fits your tooth perfectly.
Dental bonding can repair chips, gaps, and misshapen teeth with the same material we use for white fillings. Once the bonding material is applied to the tooth, we shape and polish it to match the dimensions of your mouth. We use shade matching so that the bonding blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth, creating a natural appearance.
For minor tooth repairs, cosmetic dental bonding is the way to go! You can adjust a few select teeth in your mouth with one affordable and easy office visit. In most cases, we won’t need to use local anaesthesia, so you don’t need to worry about feeling numb afterward.
The material we use holds up against the strong forces of your jaws. You can use teeth with dental bonding the same as your natural teeth! They’re a great way to improve the appearance of a few discoloured or chipped teeth.
Are you looking to straighten your smile? To readjust an entire row of crooked teeth, you can invest in braces. Orthodontic devices straighten each tooth over a period of time. They can correct a misaligned bite or teeth.
Orthodontic treatment requires patience—it isn’t an overnight fix. In some cases, it can take several years to complete your treatment. But after you see the results, you’ll be glad that you did it.
It’s imperative to take good care of your teeth when you have braces. Otherwise, bacteria could become lodged in the brackets and cause decay.
At our office, we can meet with you for a consultation to determine if orthodontics are right for you.
