There are many factors that determine the appearance of teeth. To begin with, genetics will decide if teeth are large or small, rounded or squared. In fact, genetics also decides on the positioning and spacing of teeth. For dentists, a common cosmetic concern with many patients is the wish to change the shape and/or size of their teeth.
Patients may be dissatisfied with the aesthetic look of their teeth for a variety of reasons. And while shape and size are a common concern, there may be other issues as well. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, Dr. Lloyd Pedvis offers a number of different cosmetic procedures, each designed to meet the specific personal needs of the patient.
Dental bonding is easy, inexpensive, and with excellent cosmetic results. Bonding is often used when a tooth is chipped, damaged, or discolored. Bonding also smooths out any rough edges.
A dental crown is simply a tooth-shaped "cap" that is fixed into place over a damaged tooth. Dental crowns serve to repair a natural tooth, and restore shape, contour, and appearance.
Dental veneers are thin “shells” made of porcelain or composite materials. They fit perfectly over a tooth, and are used in a variety of applications to improve the aesthetic look of the teeth.
Contouring can remove small amounts of existing tooth enamel, with the intention of changing a tooth's shape, length, or surface features. For some, this may be the most viable answer.
