What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the type of dentistry that aims to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth or bite. Cosmetic dentistry can help in changing the alignment, shape, size and colour of your existing teeth. Common procedures and services offered include veneers, bonding, teeth whitening, and dentures. While all of these cosmetic procedures can help to improve your smile, not all cosmetic dentistry options are the best for every patient. When you schedule a consultation with Star Dental Dr Rourke with meet with you and discuss your “smile goals” and recommend the best procedure or combination of procedures.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

How do I get a brighter smile with Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening can be one of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve your smile. Teeth can be whitened in the dentist’s office for $1000. The most common and least expensive means of tooth whitening is in-tray whitening which costs $400.

What are Dental Veneers made of?

Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured porcelain or resin that cover the front surface of the teeth. After removing about a half-millimetre of enamel from the tooth surface, these thin shells are bonded (cemented) to the front of the teeth, changing their colour, shape, size, or length. Veneers are often called “Hollywood teeth.” Living up to that name, this process can cost up to $650-$1,300 per tooth.

What is Dental Bonding?

In dental bonding, a tooth-coloured, putty-like resin, which is a durable plastic material, is applied to the tooth and hardened with an ultraviolet or laser light, bonding the material to the tooth. Your dentist then trims, shapes, and polishes it. Bonding can repair decayed, chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth; it is also a good cosmetic alternative to, or replacement for, amalgam or silver fillings. Bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes, and $100 to $400, per tooth.

What kinds of  Dental Crown can I have?

A dental crown, also called a cap, fits over and replaces the entire decayed or damaged tooth above the gum line, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns keep a weak tooth from breaking or hold a cracked tooth together. Crowns can be used cosmetically to cover misshapen or severely discoloured teeth. Crowns can be made from metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, or all-porcelain, and cost about $850 to $1650 each.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and Onlays also called indirect fillings, are made from gold, porcelain, or composite materials and fill decayed or damaged teeth. Dental fillings are moulded into place during an office visit; however, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory and bonded into place by your dentist. The filling is called an “inlay” when the material is bonded within the centre of a tooth; it is called an “onlay” when the filling includes one or more points of the tooth or covers the biting surface. Inlays and onlays preserve as much healthy tooth as possible and are an alternative to crowns. This cosmetic dentistry procedure costs about $650 to $1,200 per tooth.

Are Dental Implants expensive?

Dental implants are titanium replacement tooth roots inserted into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw and providing a foundation for a replacement tooth. This procedure can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A bridge is made of crowns for the teeth on either side of a gap with false teeth in between. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth.

Dental braces can straighten crooked or misaligned teeth and works by applying continuous pressure over a period of time to slowly move teeth in a specific direction.
