Get Your Smile Back

Cosmetic dentistry in Gatineau delivers stunning Hollywood smiles you can be proud of!

3 Cosmetic Dental Procedures That’ll Get You a Hollywood-Worthy Smile!

Your smile can completely change the way you look, and, more notably, the way you feel. Smiling, no matter where you are in the world, means you’re happy. In fact, smiling triggers the pleasure centres in our brain in a way nothing else can. It’s important to love your smile, and to keep it healthy. Cosmetic dentistry in Gatineau focuses on these stunning smiles.

But sometimes our teeth, and ultimately our smiles are damaged. Be it a chipped or missing tooth, or multiple damaged and missing teeth, it can greatly affect an individual’s confidence and overall health.

If you find yourself not loving your smile, hiding it behind closed lips, don’t worry. You’ve got plenty of cosmetic dentistry options in Gatineau to choose from to get the smile you want. Here are 3 cosmetic procedures that can help get your smile back.

Veneers

Veneers, also known as porcelain laminates, are thin pieces of porcelain or resin designed to cover a discoloured, or unsightly tooth. Veneers can change everything from the colour to the length of the tooth, completely changing its appearance. Once the veneer is adhered to the surface of the damaged tooth, no one would ever know it was ever there.

Crowns

Similar to veneers, dental crowns are used to cover damaged teeth. The level of damage to the tooth will determine whether a veneer or a crown will be used. Veneers tend to be more cosmetic, while crowns are a little more tactful. Where veneers are simply a thin layer of resin adhered to the tooth, crowns are a complete cap. They cover the whole tooth, improving the shape and strength of the original tooth as well as its colour.

Complete Dentures

Losing a large quantity of teeth can be a scary experience and can severely impact a person’s self-esteem and self-image. Thankfully, complete dentures have advanced so far that any tooth loss (no matter how severe) will become completely unnoticeable.

Complete dentures are removable prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth. Complete dentures are often used after an individual has been in an accident, or has lost multiple teeth due to oral complications such as periodontitis.

Cosmetic dentistry can help get your smile back, and can even give you that Hollywood smile you’ve always dreamed about. You’ll never want to stop smiling and showing off your pearly whites. Having a great smile not only keeps you happy, it keeps you healthy.

If you’re tired of hiding your smile away, and want to bring it back out into the world, consider cosmetic dentistry. Gatineau has many cosmetic dentistry professionals that are ready to help you get your smile back.
