Here's an insider's view:
Our Toronto cosmetic dentistry services are about helping people look better and feel better about their smiles. When you think about it, smiles are the ultimate accessory and any improvements to your smile can have tremendous influence over your entire appearance.
When asked, most people would like to have whiter teeth. If you’re forty years old and the color of year teeth has gone from pearly white to a dingy yellow, you may not even be aware of it. You’re not likely to pass judgment on your teeth when you look in the mirror each morning. You’ve got other things to fuss about, like the bags under your eyes and that misbehaving cowlick in your hair.
The thing is, other people will surely judge you on the color of your teeth. When you talk and when you smile, they will notice. At an unconscious level, most people place high value on smile beauty. We’re attracted to gorgeous smile.
Toronto Cosmetic Dentistry clinics can offer options for enhancing your smile. At Royal York Dental, we usually recommend teeth whitening as a first option. Whitening teeth is easy to do and affordable. For many, changing from dingy yellow to a more youthful glow is all they want in terms of a more attractive smile.
Cosmetic Contouring involves shaping the teeth to remove any jagged edges or sharp corners. Subtle adjustments to the outline of the front teeth can give the appearance of “instant orthodontics” whereby your teeth go from looking crooked to straight.
In a way, cosmetic dentistry is simply about addition and subtraction. The trick is in knowing where to add and where to take away. Contouring teeth is subtraction, Cosmetic Bonding is addition. With bonding, a dentist adds tooth colored material on to reshape your teeth. The idea is to reshape them to look perfectly matched.
If cosmetic bonding is a consideration, you can whiten them first so a lighter color can then be used for the bonding material. With just a few simple and affordable steps, you can have a terrific smile.
Porcelain Veneers is a more advanced option offered by cosmetic dentists. Veneers can create an enhanced look that looks straight out of Hollywood. The teeth practically glow and project a uniform brightness.
Toronto is a busy happening place where beautiful smiles get more attention. Toronto cosmetic dentistry options often include the options mentioned here, with veneers considered the ultimate in enhanced beauty.
