Cosmetic Dentistry

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry primarily focused on improving appearance. It improves dental aesthetics such as teeth colour, size, shape, alignment, and other elements like bite and the appearance of gums.

While typical dentistry is largely about treating dental diseases and conditions affecting the teeth and gums, cosmetic dentistry procedures are mainly about creating the “perfect smile”.

Conditions Treated by Cosmetic Dentists

Our cosmetic dentists handle all kinds of oral health issues. These include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Teeth discoloration
  • Damaged teeth (cracked teeth, chipped teeth, etc.)

Main Types of Cosmetic Dentistry 

We deal with the above conditions using the following main types of cosmetic dentistry procedures:


1. Dental Veneers

If you have damaged teeth enamel, gaps between teeth, or crooked teeth, such issues can be solved using dental veneers (which are thin white shells that are placed over natural teeth). Our dental veneers are custom-made using medical-grade porcelain, ceramic, or resin.


2. Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are placed on top of damaged teeth. They protect the tooth as well as restore the shape of teeth when filings can’t solve the problem. Dental crowns are alternatives for other procedures like root canals, dental implants, and dental bridges.


3. Indirect Fillings (Inlays & Onlays)

We offer this cosmetic dentistry procedure when the teeth are too decayed to support typical fillings. Indirect fillings can be used instead of crowns to preserve a larger surface of the tooth while strengthening it.


4. Dental Implants

This procedure is for individuals who have suffered from tooth loss or severe tooth decay. Dental implants replace teeth. Cosmetic dentists attach dental implants to the bone socket of missing teeth.


5. Dental Bonding

This cosmetic dentistry procedure repairs cracks, chips, decay, and misshaping in teeth. Bonding is a cost-effective alternative to crowns and fillings. A moldable resin is applied on the tooth/teeth being treated, and hardened using UV light, trimmed, shaped, and polished to match other teeth.


6. Teeth Whitening

This is the most popular type of cosmetic dentistry procedure. Even if you brush after every meal, your teeth will still get discolored over time by food, drinks, and habits like smoking. As the name suggests, teeth whitening makes teeth white.

We begin this procedure by cleaning the teeth to remove tartar, plaque, or other debris before whitening the teeth. While there are countless over-the-counter teeth whitening products on sale today, the procedure should be left to experts like us, who offer professional teeth whitening services guaranteed to be safe and offer longer-lasting results.


7. Other Types (Dental braces, Invisalign, and Gum Contouring)

We offer other types of cosmetic dentistry procedures in Scarborough and the greater city of Toronto. For instance, our patients can get dental braces installed to straighten misaligned or crooked teeth. Individuals who want straight teeth but don’t like traditional metal braces have options like Invisalign – a clear/invisible alternative to metal braces.

People with excess gum tissue and concealed teeth can benefit from a cosmetic procedure known as gum contouring which involves cutting/shaping excess gum tissue.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry


Boosts Self Esteem

Cosmetic dentistry solves some appearance problems. By fixing crooked, discolored, damaged teeth and/or decayed teeth, you improve your smile and self-esteem.


Improved Speech and Eating

Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental braces that correct teeth misalignment fix a person’s bite and speech. Crowns, implants, and fillings also make it easier to eat, which comes with health benefits.
