Here are a few common cosmetic dentistry procedures: including using veneers to correct a tooth’s colour, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.

Veneers

These are thin laminates that we bond directly to your natural teeth. We can use them to correct the colour of your tooth, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.

Crowns

A crown covers your tooth, protecting it and keeping it strong. They can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, or pure white porcelain (to look just like a natural tooth).

Teeth Whitening

The enamel on our teeth darkens as we age, and things like red wine, coffee and tea can give our smile ugly yellow stains. Teeth whitening allows us to remove or reduce stains and lighten your teeth, giving them a whiter, brighter, more attractive appearance. *Learn more about our teeth whitening services.*

Contouring

Contouring will reshape your teeth if they are crooked, chipped or overlapping. We carefully reduce your teeth and build them up with laminate material until they are the perfect shape and size.

Bonding

We can improve the appearance of your teeth by closing the gaps between them – that’s called “bonding.” A resin material is applied to your teeth, and then we harden it using a special light.

Q: My teeth have ugly yellow stains. I don’t smoke, so how did they get so discoloured and dark?

A: Tobacco does stain teeth, but it’s not the only culprit. Red wine, coffee and tea are notorious for staining your teeth. Diet soda is also a problem, because its acidity breaks down your tooth's enamel — leaving it prone to stains. You don't need to cut out these beverages entirely in order to protect your teeth — just be mindful of what they might do to your smile, and try to limit your intake.

Q: How do people go from having terrible teeth to having beautiful teeth so quickly? What procedure are they getting?

A: Veneers can improve the look of a person's smile very quickly because they are thin laminates that we bond directly to your natural teeth. It’s a very simple procedure. If you’re interested in this type of smile makeover, Bedford South Dentistry will happily accommodate your needs.

Q: Does my dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry procedures?

A: It depends on your coverage. Different policies cover different procedures. We would be happy to look at your insurance policy with you and help you understand your available coverage. Just ask our receptionist at your next appointment.
