When you can smile with confidence you can achieve great things! Are you satisfied with the appearance of your smile? Are there aspects of it you'd like to change? When you feel self-conscious about how your teeth look, you may not smile the way you'd like to, and this affects your personal and professional relationships. Cosmetic dentistry in Toronto has solutions for you, and here are some of the latest advancements.

Invisalign

Gone are the days of wearing bulky metal brackets to straighten your teeth! Invisalign offers a solution that works well for most patients and allows them to align their teeth without anyone noticing. The use of snug fitting, clear plastic aligners to apply gentle pressure and move your teeth is an ideal option for adults looking for discretion. A straighter more beautiful smile not only boosts your confidence, it also benefits your oral health because teeth that are aligned are easier to keep clean.

Dental Implants

Implants have become the most effective and reliable treatment for replacing one or more missing teeth. They protect the integrity of your oral health by restoring your root as well as your tooth. They can also be strategically placed to support dental prosthetics such as a denture or dental bridge so patients missing multiple teeth can also benefit from dental implants.

If you've been told in the past that you weren't a candidate for implants because you lack enough healthy bone structure to support them, Dr. Joo can perform a bone grafting procedure to rebuild your jawbone. At Toronto Lakeshore Dental, implants are available to all of our patients!

Cosmetic Bonding and Porcelain Veneers

Dental bonding and veneers are both ideal for handling some of the same cosmetic issues such as:

  • Repairing small chips and fractures
  • Filling or covering areas of recession due to gum loss
  • Covering stains or discoloration
  • Filling in gaps or spacing between teeth
  • Repairing size discrepancies
  • Eliminating excessive wear

Bonding is ideal for handling smaller issues, while veneers can be used to enhance an entire smile. Dr. Joo or Dr. Moore can determine which of these procedures will most benefit your smile during a consultation.
