Frequently Asked Dental Questions

I know my smile needs some work, but I'm not sure if I can afford to have cosmetic dental work done.

Quality dental work does cost money; there is no question about that. Like any cosmetic process, costs will increase with the amount of product or services you desire. While one must be careful not to rack up payments on frivolous things there is one area where financing can make a big difference in a person's quality of life. I am referring to 0% APR dental treatment financing. You should consider it a good investment. If it is not done in a timely basis it could end up costing you more in the long run.

Most of my teeth are bunched too near the front of my mouth. Is there a way to get rid of that crowded look?

With orthodontics, cosmetic contouring, and/or veneering, teeth can be reshaped and polished for long-lasting results: a stronger, less crowded-looking appearance.

My back teeth have a lot of silver and gold. Is there a less obvious way to fill cavities?

New advances in tooth-colored porcelain and composite resin allow fillings to go unnoticed.

There's a big gap between my two front teeth. Can that be changed?

Yes. Veneers can close gaps (diastema) and help create the smile you desire. Bonded resins generally require one office visit, while porcelain veneering takes two. Veneers, along with good oral hygiene and a healthy lifestyle, are effective ways to enhance a smile. A cosmetic dentist can explain the various techniques and help determine which is the best suited to your specific needs.

How can I make my discoloured teeth whiter?

Bleaching, the process for whitening discolored teeth, can be done in the dentist's office or with dentist-supervised, at-home systems. At-home systems should be individually fitted by a cosmetic dentist.
