Cosmetic Dentistry in St. Albert

Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dentistry that focuses on the art and science of improving your smile. If there are one or more aspects of your smile that you are unsatisfied with, cosmetic dentistry can help. Whether you want to fix a chipped tooth, re-contour your gums or brighten your smile, these modifications are possible with cosmetic dentistry

What Are My Options For Whitening My Teeth?

At Bright Dental, we have two options for whitening or bleaching your teeth. 

1. In-office light activated whitening system::

This system offers patients the convenience of having quick whitening sessions in our office.  Patients can choose to add time to their regular hygiene and check-up visits so bleaching can be accommodated.

2. Custom-fit take-home trays:

These custom-made trays allow you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, to your desired shade rather than a standard white.  

If you are interested in teeth whitening, please call our office with any questions you have or ask your hygienist or dentist at your next appointment. 

If your teeth are badly stained and do not respond to teeth whitening, porcelain veneers are an option for you.  Veneers are thin, stain-resistant shells of porcelain that fit snugly over your teeth. They will permanently hide stains while creating a new, dazzling smile you can be proud of.

What Types of Problems Does Cosmetic Dentistry Solve?

No matter what problem or embarrassment you have with your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help solve it.  Some possibilities are:

  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Undesirable height (too tall or too short)
  • Jagged or missing teeth
  • "Gummy smile"

Who is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Virtually anyone who wants to make permanent changes to the appearance of their smile can undergo cosmetic dentistry.  To be an immediate candidate, you must have healthy teeth and gums. If your gums are not healthy, Bright Dental can perform periodontal therapy to tackle any phases of gum disease present.  Once your teeth and gums are healthy, cosmetic dental treatment can begin.  Our St. Albert dentist is always happy to sit down and discuss the many options available to you to help you achieve the smile you desire.  Contact our office today to set up a consultation.
