What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to correct any perceived imperfections in the shape, colour or position of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, which in turn makes you feel better about yourself.
Cosmetic dentistry is largely considered elective, which means that it’s chosen by the patient rather than something the dentist insists on, and as such it is added to your regular dental care plan. However, cosmetic dentistry may also be reconstructive when undertaken to restore function after injury or illness or repair congenital abnormalities such as cleft lip and palate in children. So, while most people associate cosmetic dental procedures with smiles that are white, straight and bright, it’s not just for vanity reasons – there may be a clinical benefit too.
A range of dental treatments provided at Greenland Dental can improve the appearance of your smile but remember that not all procedures are suitable for all cases. During your visit, our dentists will carefully assess your teeth and propose your treatment options based on your concerns and desired outcome. If you’re looking to improve your smile your dentist may recommend some of the following procedures.
Most of us will notice our teeth yellowing and discolouring as we age, for a range of reasons. Professional tooth whitening is a procedure designed to lighten the colour of your natural teeth, with the aim ofimproving the overall appearance of your smile. The whitening systems we use achieve significant colour change in many cases and your dentist will carefully consider if this option will work for you.
Dental veneers are an excellent choice for treating teeth that are chipped, discoloured, or slightly crooked. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps between your teeth. They are made from porcelain or composite resin, and your dentist will assess whether veneers are the right option for you.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are primarily used to strengthen teeth but in some cases they are used for aesthetic reasons. Dental bridges can close a gap where a tooth is missing and can improve your smile and ability to chew effectively. Crowns and bridges can be made to match the look and colour of your natural teeth. They are very resistant to staining and will not discolour over time like natural teeth. Your dentist will assess whether crowns and/or bridges are an appropriate option for you.
If your teeth are crowded, getting your teeth straightened can sometimes be the best way to improve your smile. If you’re interested in straightening your teeth, chat to your dentist who will refer you to a trusted specialist for orthodontic treatment if they determine that’s the best course of action for you.
Tooth Coloured Fillings
Tooth coloured fillings, also known as white fillings, are used for complete tooth restoration. Utilising composite resin, they are ideal for mending various dental complications such as broken, cracked, or decayed teeth. Our dentists will use a resin that matches the colour of your teeth to improve your smile and overall oral functionality.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
At Greenland Dental, our philosophy centres on the belief that everyone should have access to premium dental care. To achieve that vision, we aim to keep our prices as low as possible. The price of dental restoration and other treatments varies from patient to patient, so we take into account a variety of factors including your oral health history, the severity of the issue, and any added procedures that need to be completed.
On average, the price of porcelain veneers treatment can range between $1000-1500 per tooth. However, this price is not fixed as the final cost will depend on the aesthetic features that a patient desires such as natural transparency, shading, and other factors.
