Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Regular dentistry looks after the structural health of your teeth, making sure that they’re functioning properly and warding off tooth decay and gum disease. But even the healthiest of structures can develop problems that affect how they appear from the outside.

It’s no mystery that straight, white teeth contribute enormously to how the world perceives you. Study after study shows that people who sport broad smiles full of straight white teeth are found to be more confident and attractive.

If your teeth fall short of this ideal, there’s a lot that Dr. Brar can do to remedy the problem.

What types of cosmetic dentistry are available?

When it comes to the appearance of your teeth, the main goals are straight and white. Whether you were born with crooked, discolored, or misshapen teeth, or they’ve become that way over time, there’s a lot that Dr. Brar can do to help.

Dr. Brar offers a number of cosmetic procedures, including:

Veneers

These thin porcelain and ceramic fronts can hide a number of imperfections, such as chips, gaps, and worn-down or crooked teeth.

Composite fillings

Tooth decay is not uncommon, and Dr. Brar stops it by clearing out the decay and treating the cavity with a filling. In days of old, fillings were made from unsightly metals that stand out against the white of your teeth. With composite resins, she can fill your teeth with a material that blends in seamlessly with your natural tooth.

Whitening

Dr. Brar offers professional whitening services that whiten and brighten aging, yellowing, stain-covered teeth.

Crowns and bridges

If your tooth is severely compromised, Dr. Brar can place a crown to protect the tooth, while also upgrading its appearance. She also offers bridges, if you’re missing teeth, to fill in unsightly gaps in your mouth.

Bonding

Using a special resin, Dr. Brar can cover up chips and fill in gaps through bonding.

Dentures

If you’re missing many, or all, of your teeth, Dr. Brar offers partial or full dentures to restore your smile.

How do I know which cosmetic dentistry procedure is right for me?

When you sit down with Dr. Brar, she reviews your issues and your goals and comes up with several recommendations. The ultimate choice is up to you, as your lifestyle and budget will dictate what’s best for your unique situation.
