At Niagara Park Dental we consider every procedure to be cosmetic. However the term Cosmetic Dentistry usually refers to the procedures where the ultimate purpose is to improve appearance. These include:
1- Whitening: teeth whitening can be done either on the chair or by a take home procedure. Teeth can get darker after getting a trauma or after receiving root canal treatment. Once a tooth gets darker after receiving root canal treatment, the procedure of choice to make it whiter can be internal bleaching.
2- Veneers: these can be used to make teeth whiter, or to close gaps, or even to align crocked teeth.
3- Implants; Implanst are used to replace missing teeth. They are usually used to restore function. However when we replace a missing front tooth, appearance is definitely improved.
4- Orthodontics: crocked teeth don’t look optimal. They appearance in such case can be improved using aligners.
