Professional teeth whitening at the dentist is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment, but you may be considering in-office professional teeth whitening vs. take-home whitening trays.
Both are effective in whitening teeth, but the main difference comes down to the application method and the time required before you see results.
Veneers (Smile Design)
Dental veneers are custom-made shells that fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. They conceal cracks, chips, stains and other cosmetic imperfections. Veneers are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments. There are several types of veneers available, depending on your specific goals.
- Composite veneers (minimally invasive)
Composite veneers can conceal mild cosmetic issues. A tooth-colored composite resin (same material used for dental bonding) is used to achieve the desired results.
- Ceramic Veneers
Porcelain veneers can address a number of aesthetic imperfections. These restorations are custom-made to fit your dental anatomy. With the advances of modern digital dentistry, it allows us to transform an entire smile in the shortest possible time, using materials that perfectly reproduce the mechanical and optical properties of natural teeth, and even customise a hollywood smile that you desire.
This procedure involves reshaping the tissue and/or underlying bones to create the appearance of longer or symmetrical teeth, thereby making the smile more aesthetically pleasing. With a shorter gum line, your teeth immediately look longer and fuller so they take center stage when you smile.
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown is like a single helmet that covers the exposed surface of your tooth to strengthen it, prevent it from further cracking or improve its appearance. They are available in different materials, mainly tooth colored (E-max, Zirconia, Porcelain-fused to Metal) and non-tooth colored (Metal or Gold)
Dental bridge is one of the options to replace one or more missing teeth. It includes an artificial tooth or teeth which are linked to crowns on either side of naturally existing teeth to provide support.
Made from titanium, a dental implant screw is an artificial tooth root set into the jaw. This builds a strong and long-lasting anchor for a wide variety of restoration options. We can then place a natural-looking replacement tooth crown on the implant, which improves the function and health of your smile.
