Restoring or enhancing the appearance of your teeth and gums is the ultimate focus of cosmetic dentistry. However, what many people don’t realize is that beautiful teeth are indicative of functional teeth, and that teeth which function properly generally remain healthier for longer. Therefore, cosmetic dentistry not only provides a sense of self-confidence, but it often goes hand-in-hand with restorative dental therapy. Here, at Horizon Dental, our dentists offer the following cosmetic dentistry services in Terrace:
Teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them can be aesthetically enhanced through bonding. This procedure involves the application, or bonding, of tooth-coloured materials to the tooth surface.
Sometimes, the appearance of your smile can be improved by removing or contouring enamel on slightly chipped or oddly shaped teeth. Often performed in conjunction with bonding, reshaping is generally a quick and comfortable procedure, whose results can be seen immediately.
Bridges are tooth-coloured replacement teeth that fill the space in which a tooth used to be. Horizon Dental offers a variety of bridge types, including removable, fixed and implants.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin laminates of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth to cover deep stains, cracks and chips. At Horizon Dental, a single appointment is all it takes to transform your smile with dental veneers.
This procedure removes part of the gums to raise, or lift, the gumline and to give the teeth a lengthened appearance.
Patients, whose gums have receded due to periodontal disease or vigorous brushing may choose to replace the lost gum tissue with a gum graft. Tissue is typically taken from the palate and reattached at the site of recession to level the gumline and to give the tooth a shorter, healthier appearance.
