Aside from proper oral hygiene care with bi-annual preventative visits, many of our clients are taking advantage of the various cosmetic procedures available at our Thunder Bay dental clinic to help them achieve beautiful smiles! Here at Oasis Family Dental, we provide options for people considering cosmetic procedures either for professional or personal reasons.
1. Teeth Whitening
One of our most popular procedures is teeth whitening. Most people have this service performed after their regular checkup and teeth cleanings to ensure all plaque and tartar have been removed. Whitening can be done to help lighten your teeth to a whiter shade that you currently have or to restore them to the desired colour level. Some people also have this service performed prior to having other cosmetic procedures completed, which use colour-matching techniques.
2. Dental Implants
Another trending cosmetic procedure our patients enjoy are obtaining dental implants to replace missing teeth and eliminate gaps in their smiles. Dental implant technologies have improved in recent years and there are several different options available, depending on the number of teeth your need to replace.
Invisalign is one of the top methods adults and teens are using to get their teeth straightened. The wonderful thing about Invisalign is it often difficult for others to tell you are straightening your teeth, thanks to the clear, almost invisible cups. Plus, you do not have to worry about difficulties with brushing and flossing or not being able to eat your favourite foods!
Dental veneers are a rather popular solution for addresses problems with badly stained teeth, cracked and chipped teeth, gaps in-between teeth, and other cosmetic concerns. The veneers are made from porcelain materials and colour-matched to your current teeth. They are secured over the top of the existing teeth to cover up imperfection.
5. Composite Bonding (Fillings)
Composite bonding is a procedure perfect for addressing dental decay and cavities in the front teeth where their appearance matters. The composite material is colour-matched to the tooth and applied after the dentist drills out and removes the dental decay. The end result is a uniform and natural looking tooth. Some patients also use this procedure to have cavities filled in their back teeth so they also look natural.
As we age, the bright whiteness of our teeth changes from the foods we eat and beverage we drink. Certain types of habits, like using tobacco products can also affect the appearance of the teeth. Other types of cosmetic issues can develop from poor dental hygiene and infrequent visits to your dentist.
