Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Decay, cracks and fractures can leave you feeling embarrassed about your teeth. Fortunately, a composite is a natural looking filling that restore your smile, and make it look better than before. Composites are more durable and stronger than ever, and are used in a variety of dental treatments. When a tooth is affected by decay, it will be removed and filled with a composite filling.
Many types of filling materials can help restore teeth. If you need a cavity filled, our dentist will help you decide on the best option for you. Composite fillings, combined with silver amalgam fillings, are one of the most common dental procedures done today. Composites are aesthetically pleasing, making them most suitable for the front teeth or more visible areas of the mouth. Although composite fillings can last for many years, eventually all fillings need to be replaced.
Composite fillings are suitable for:
- Filling a space between two teeth
- Broken or worn teeth
- Cracked, broken or chipped teeth
Placement of composite fillings
Composite fillings can usually be done in a single appointment. You may be given local anesthesia to numb the area around your tooth, to allow the dentist to remove the decayed portion. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. We then dry, shape and polish them to ensure a natural appearance. You may experience some minor sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. This is only temporary. After treatment, your dentist will give you detailed oral care instructions that will help you keep your composite fillings for longer.
Porcelains Crowns Mississauga
Dental crowns, which are also known as caps, are an inlay designed to cover the entire upper portion of a tooth, restoring it to its natural shape and size. This treatment strengthens tooth structure that cannot be fixed with fillings or other types of restorations.
Compared to many other types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored) are the most preferred, because they can be made to match a tooth’s natural color. Porcelain is extremely strong, and usually lasts for a very long time. Eventually, they may need to be replaced. Known to be aesthetically pleasing, Porcelain crowns can look like the original – or even better!
Crowns can help in a variety of situations:
- Restore a week, broken or worn tooth.
- Protect a tooth that had a previous root canal.
- Cover misshaped or discolored tooth.
- Protect a tooth that already has a large filling.
What steps are involved in getting a crown?
Two office visits are usually required to get a dental crown. The first appointment involves examining and preparing the tooth for crown. An impression of your tooth will be taken for use in fabricating a permanent crown and you will then receive a temporary crown until the customized crown has been made by a dental lab. Upon your return visit, the temporary will be removed and after ensuring that the permanent crown provide the proper look and fit, it will be cemented into place.
Even if your crowns are successful, it’s important to schedule a follow up appointment for your future oral health.
Porcelains Fixed Bridges Mississauga
Fixed bridges is a (non – removable) device that can be a convenient way to restore your smile when you have one or more missing teeth.
Although there are several types of bridges, your dentist will determine which option is right for you. Porcelain fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble the look and feel of your natural teeth. This type of bridge is attached to two crowns, which fit over the existing teeth and hold the bridge in place.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last for many years. However, they may need to be replaced or retightened due to normal wear.
Why do I need a fixed bridge?
- Restore your smile by filling the gap left by missing teeth.
- Support the facial tissues
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting.
- Restore the ability to chew and speak naturally.
- Remain in place as you eat, speak and sleep – just like natural teeth.
How is a bridge attached?
The process of getting a bridge generally consists of of two or more visits. First, the dentist will numb the tooth to remove the decay around it. At that time, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. An accurate impression of your teeth will be taken, and sent to the dental lab. Next, a temporary bridge will be fitted onto the tooth, (worn for several weeks) before your next appointment.
At the second visit, the temporary bridge will be removed and the tooth will be cleaned. Finally, your new permanent bridge will be fitted, checked and adjusted to fit your mouth. Once completed, special attention to hygiene at home will need to be taken, especially flossing under the bridge.
Porcelain Veneers Mississauga
Vaneers are a thin layer of porcelain that bonds directly to the front surfaces of the teeth, changing their appearance or shape. They are the ideal choice for getting a brighter, well aligned smile.
They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
Regular maintenance will be needed to ensure the optimal health of your teeth and veneers. Though porcelain veneers are strong and long lasting, they may eventually need to be replaced.
Porcelain veneers can:
- Restore crooked, misshapen or chipped teeth.
- Fix discolored or stained teeth.
- Teeth which are too small or too large.
- Fill in gaps in your smile.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Veneers can be applied quickly and painlessly in two quick procedures, with little or no anaesthesia. To prepare your teeth for the veneer, the dentist will have to lightly buff or shape the surface to allow for the thickness of the vaneer. During your consultation, an impression (mold) of your teeth is taken and sent to the laboratory that will customize your veneers.
On your next visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Each veneer will be bonded to the tooth with a very strong resin cement. The cement is hardened with a special light, making the bond permanent.
When the veneer is ready for permanent application, your teeth will be cleaned and etched (marked slightly) to ensure the best bondage between your teeth and the veneers.
The good news is that you can clean your veneers just like your regular teeth; and with proper care, they will last you for many years.
Tooth Whitening Mississauga
Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is one of the simplest, non-invasive procedures and also one of the most effective ways to brighten your smile.
There are a range of dental whitening procedures and which one is suitable for you will depend on your situation. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that allows you to dramatically whiten teeth in the comfort of your own home, over a 2-week period.
One of the best options available is the professional, in-office teeth whitening. This is a one-day bleaching session that allows patients to leave the office with whiter, brighter smile – up to several shades lighter!
Bleaching works by breaking up the stains from within the teeth, hence returning the teeth to their original shade. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, your dentist will evaluate the replacement of any old fillings and crowns. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match your newly whitened smile.
Whitening is not a permanent solution. And to keep up with smoking or drinking lot of coffee, you may need a touch up whitening every year.
Reasons to consider tooth whitening:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
- Yellow, brown stained teeth
Tooth Whitening – What to Expect
Getting your teeth whitened in our office generally takes two visits. This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to create a custom-fitted tray.
At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 (or overnight) depending on how stained and discolored your teeth are.
It’s common to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will go away after your treatment is complete.
After you have your teeth whitened, make sure to follow the after-care instructions provided. It is recommended that visit your dentist regularly to help maintain your beautiful, white smile.
In-office bleaching normally takes 1-hour appointment, and consist of 1-3 sessions (more if needed) of bleaching using an ultraviolet light. This type of bleaching can also be followed by take home trays to achieve the desired level of whitening.
