Enhance Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry in NW Calgary

Cosmetic dentistry may be a solution worth considering if you're searching for a way to improve your smile and boost your self-esteem.

Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on improving the look of teeth. There are a variety of treatments available so that you can find the perfect option for your needs and budget.

Some of the procedures offered include:

  • Teeth whitening: One of the most popular procedures, teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by several shades in a single visit.

  • Dental veneers: A type of dental restoration. A thin shell is made from porcelain or composite resins and is placed on the existing teeth to improve the appearance.

  • Bonding and reshaping: Bonding is a procedure in which the dentist uses a resin to attach a tooth-colored material to your teeth. It is used to fill in gaps, change the shape of your teeth, or make them whiter. Reshaping is a procedure in which the dentist uses a laser or drill to change the shape of your teeth.

  • Crowns & Bridges: Crowns are generally used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a root canal treatment or when a large cavity threatens the structural integrity. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. The missing tooth is supported by a bridge that is attached to the two healthy teeth on either side of the gap where the missing tooth should be. The bridge is made up of three or more dental crowns.

Some of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry include:

  • A more attractive smile

  • Increased confidence

  • Better oral health

Teeth Whitening in NW Calgary

Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way in recent years, and one of the most popular procedures is teeth whitening. There are now several methods available, both at home and in-office.

In-office treatments differ from at-home treatments in several ways. First, in-office treatments are typically faster and more effective. A higher concentration of bleaching agents is used, meaning teeth may be whitened by several shades in a single treatment. In addition, the laser technology used in many in-office treatments helps speed up the process and achieve better results.

On the other hand, at-home treatments are more affordable and can be done in the privacy of your own home. However, they typically take longer to achieve results and may not be as effective.

If you're considering teeth whitening, choosing the right treatment for you is important. An in-office treatment may be the best option if you want fast, dramatic results. At Sage Meadows Dental we offer Philips Zoom in-office whitening. Whitening appointments are completed in only 1.5 hours!

It's important to note that teeth whitening is not suitable for everyone and may work well for one person and not another. Several factors have to be considered before you decide to whiten your teeth, so it's a good idea to consult your dentist before doing at-home treatments.

Porcelain Veneers in NW Calgary

Veneers are very thin shells that cover the front of your teeth. They are made from porcelain or composite materials, with porcelain being more expensive but providing a better aesthetic result. They're designed to improve the teeth' appearance and can be an excellent option if you want a smile makeover but don't want major dental work or implants.

How are they applied?

Composite veneers are applied in a single visit and don't require drilling or anesthesia. The dentist will use a mild chemical on your teeth to make the tooth's surface rough. This aids in the adhesion of the composite resin to teeth enamel. The dentist will choose the composite resin that best matches the colour of your teeth. The composite resin is then applied to your teeth in thin layers, and a bright light is used between each layer to harden the resin. The tooth is shaped and polished, with the finished product looking natural and smooth.

Porcelain veneers are applied in several visits after you have had your consultation. At the initial visit, a small amount of enamel is removed from each tooth to prepare it for the veneer. This process is necessary to make room for the porcelain veneer. Temporary veneers will be fitted, and you will wear them until your permanent veneers have been made. At your second visit, the permanent porcelain veneers will be bonded to your teeth one by one using a strong dental adhesive. The result is beautiful, natural-looking teeth!

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

When it comes to improving the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers are a great option. They offer many benefits, including:

  • A natural, tooth-like appearance

  • Stain-resistant

  • Very durable, don't chip or break as easily as composite veneers

  • Last for many years with proper care

Conditions Treated with Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are an excellent way to correct a wide variety of dental conditions such as:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth

  • Misaligned teeth

  • Teeth that are stained or discolored

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Uneven teeth

Veneers can help to correct all of these issues and give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile. If you are looking for dental veneers in Sage Hill, book an appointment with Dr. Christina Coakwell for a "Smile-Trial".

Smile-Trial is a custom smile design process for ceramic and porcelain veneers. At your initial consultation, a series of photos and videos as well as a digital scan will be taken of your mouth so that we can custom design your smile.

At your second appointment, you will be able to "try out" your newly designed smile. You will be able to see what your new smile will look like and can communicate any changes you might want.

At your third appointment, we will prepare your teeth and take a digital scan to allow the fabrication of your new veneers. You will leave this appointment with temporary veneers.

At your final appointment, we will fit your custom veneers and you will leave with your brand new smile!
