Dr. Sophia Lee of Impressions Dental understands the importance of a first impression, which is why her practice offers cosmetic dentistry options to Vaughan area residents. Read below to learn some of the available dental procedures to beautify your teeth.
Dental implant treatment is a tooth replacement procedure that consists of a titanium post being surgically inserted into your jaws to prevent jawbone shrinkage. The process takes 3 to 6 months across two appointments at our Vaughan area office.
Some advantages of dental implants include:
- Replacing any missing teeth
- Unlike dentures, implants are fixed in place and don't fall out of position
- They can last a lifetime
- Biting and chewing function is restored
Veneers resurface an individual's damaged teeth, helping with staining, discoloration, crookedness, and any general mishappened qualities. To install them, your dentist removes some enamel from your teeth before permanently placing porcelain veneers on the surface
Contouring and Reshaping
Contouring and reshaping teeth are simple cosmetic procedures that will save you plenty of time and money as compared to other treatment options while still giving you a more confident smile. They help with problems like crooked and crowded teeth, pits and/or grooves in enamel, as well as chips, cracks, and fractures.
Crowns are custom-made porcelain caps that are placed atop damaged teeth. To create them, your dentist takes an impression of your teeth and sends them to a lab. While these replacements are being made, you're given a temporary crown. Crowns reinforce teeth, allowing them to withstand various degrees of pressure, meaning you can enjoy eating without the worry of ruining your smile. Crowns are used for several procedures, such as:
- attaching bridges
- covering dental implants
- covering stained or discolored teeth
