Cosmetic dentistry combines both art and science to improve the appearance of smiles while also emphasising health and function.
Since cosmetic dentistry depends on patient goals for their smiles, a consultation with Dr Georgia Sheahan, Dr Kristine El-Atem or Dr Darius Khadembaschi will give us an opportunity to discuss what you like about your smile and how you’d like to see it improved.
Professional Teeth Whitening
While the commercial market is inundated with pharmacy teeth whitening options, you will always achieve better results when you whiten your teeth under the supervision of an experienced dentist.
Both in-house and take-home teeth whitening options use professional strength whitening gel to bleach away years of stains caused by coffee, tea, and ageing.
Teeth whitening always works best after a professional clean, which removes surface stains and tartar from teeth. Since teeth whitening bleaches stains from teeth, you never have to worry about a result that is too white.
Repairing damaged or worn teeth can dramatically improve the appearance of smiles. In many cases, fillings, crowns, bonding, inlays and onlays also restore the comfort and function of the bite.
A full smile makeover combines a variety of restorations to rebuild and repair both the aesthetic and function of the smile.
Porcelain Veneers for a Beautiful Smile
When front teeth have wear, chips or discolouration, we can cover the front of teeth with porcelain veneers, resulting in a uniform appearance that is red carpet worthy.
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable shells that look like natural teeth. As part of the preparation process, Dr Sheahan, Dr El-Atem or Dr Khadembaschi will plan the proper size, length and colour for your new smile and take impressions of teeth. Advanced materials and realistic shading provide a natural-looking result that is never too bulky or false looking.
The result is a beautiful, uniform smile that can make you look years younger.
Dr El-Atem is skilled in using cosmetic injectables to help patients eliminate cosmetic issues such as:
Gummy smiles – Using an injectable cosmetic to relax the upper lip can reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.
Frown lines – Frown lines develop over time, especially with computer use and concentration.
Marionette lines – The 'parentheses' on either side of the lips and nose can benefit from enhancements to fill in deep lines for a smooth result.
Crow’s feet – Many patients develop feathered lines along the corner of each eye from smiling or squinting. An injectable can relax those muscles and encourage those lines to smooth.
Angry eleven – Repeated expressions can leave two vertical lines between the eyebrows that cause an angry or thoughtful appearance. Injectables relax or fill those lines, depending on the option you choose.
We typically begin with a smaller dose of injectable cosmetics to determine how your body will react. Injectable treatments are temporary and will need to be repeated to maintain the results in the long term.
