Treat Yourself to a Healthy-Looking Smile
Are your teeth in need of a makeover? Ever wished they could return to their glory days? Maybe you have always wanted to change the look of your teeth? Luckily right here in Edmonton, most dentists are specialized in helping you significantly improve the look of your teeth with restorative techniques proven to restore the shape, appearance and function of your teeth.
What Are the Options Available to Me?
There are two options available to you depending on the type of restoration your teeth need: veneers or crowns. Regardless of the dental work you wish to get done, you will first need to come in for an initial consultation with your dentist.
First, let's highlight some of the key features of both these procedures. Veneers are typically used to correct imperfections by removing a small amount of enamel and attaching a ultra-thin porcelain shell to the front part of your teeth. The shells are shaped, sized and polished to fit your teeth perfectly for a natural and smooth finish. Veneers will help your dentist give you the smile you have always wanted. Veneers are recommended for people looking for:
- A versatile alternative to whitening
- Ways to hide and fix cracked or chipped teeth
- An alternative to braces to fix gaps between teeth
Crowns are often recommended for more damaged or decaying teeth. Crowns are made of porcelain and fit over your tooth. Your crowns will be made to fit perfectly over the damaged teeth. Edmonton dentist Dr. Joly will make sure that the fit, colour and bite of your crowns resemble those of healthy-looking teeth.
Whether veneers or crowns are the option for you, you will need to care for your new and improved teeth as you would your regular natural teeth. Brushing and flossing are absolutely essential to maintain the health of your teeth. The better you take care of them, the longer they will last. On average, they typically last up to 10 years if they are treated well.
How Long Is the Process?
After your initial consultation with your Edmonton dentist, Dr. Joly, you will need to come in for the actual procedure for only one or two visits. The procedure will require a local anaesthesia. On the plus side, there is no recovery period.
