Cosmetic Dental Services
Every time you get a procedure at Harmony Dental Care, we perform it with an eye towards giving and maintaining a smile that you can be proud of. Still, some procedures are more about appearance than others. If your concern is crooked, stained, chipped, and damaged teeth, our cosmetic dental services can solve your problem, large or small.
Teeth often become yellow as you age. You can also stain your teeth by eating certain foods, drinking certain beverages, and consuming certain medications, as well as by smoking. With our professional whitening service, we can help you whiten your teeth to the exact shade that you want. The procedure is completely safe, and you can continue whitening at home for faster results.
While older fillings were made of various metals, many modern fillings are made from porcelain or composite resin to match the colour of your teeth, making the restoration virtually invisible. Tooth-coloured fillings are available both for new cavities and to replace old metal amalgam fillings.
Inlays and Onlays
When damage is too extensive for a filling but there’s too much healthy tooth remaining to require a crown, an inlay or onlay is an option. An inlay covers one cusp of the tooth, whereas an onlay covers two or more.
For more severe damage, we use a crown instead of a filling, inlay, or onlay. Crowns are also useful for other types of damage. Like other restorations, they can come in tooth-coloured materials for the front teeth and for other places in the mouth where they are visible.
Veneers have a huge range of purposes: they can mask deep stains that cannot be whitened, cover cracks and chips, correct alignment, fill gaps between teeth, and improve the appearance of misshapen or worn-down teeth.
Gum Reduction and Contouring
Sometimes, cosmetic issues are related to gums rather than teeth. If your gums are too high or low, if they are misshapen, or if you are unhappy with their appearance, we can perform gum contouring surgery to give them a shape that you can be happy with.
