Choosing to get cosmetic dentistry is often a personal decision. The following interactive tools will help you determine whether cosmetic dentistry at Smile Dental Practice is right for you.
Here are a few the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered by your Hamilton cosmetic dentist:
Veneers: These are thin laminates that we bond directly to your natural teeth. We can use them to correct the colour of your tooth, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.
Crowns: Crowns cover your tooth, protecting it and keeping it strong. They can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, or pure white porcelain (to look just like a natural tooth).
Contouring: Contouring is when we reshape your teeth if they are crooked, chipped or overlapping. We carefully reduce your teeth and build them up with laminate material until they are the perfect shape and size.
Bonding: We can improve the appearance of your teeth by closing the gaps between them – that’s called “bonding.” A resin material is applied to your teeth, and then we harden it using a special light.
Teeth Whitening: The enamel on our teeth darkens as we age, and things like red wine, coffee and tea can give our smile ugly yellow stains. Laser teeth whitening allows us to remove or reduce stains and lighten your teeth, giving them a whiter, brighter, more attractive appearance.

- Q: Is a crown the same as a veneer?
A: No — they are two separate dental services.
Veneers are thin porcelain laminates that we bond directly to your natural teeth. We can use them to correct the colour of your tooth, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.
Crowns cover your tooth, protecting it and keeping it strong. They can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, or pure white porcelain (to look just like a natural tooth).
Q: My teeth have ugly yellow stains. I don’t smoke, so how did they get so gross and dark?
A: Tobacco does stain teeth, but it’s not the only culprit. Red wine, coffee and tea are notorious for staining your teeth. Diet soda is also a problem, because its acidity breaks down your tooth's enamel — leaving it prone to stains. You don't need to cut out these beverages entirely in order to protect your teeth — just be mindful of what they might do to your smile, and try to limit your intake.
Q: How do people go from having terrible teeth to having beautiful teeth so quickly? What procedure are they getting?
A: Veneers can improve the aesthetics of a person's smile very quickly, because they are thin laminates that we bond directly to your natural teeth. If you’re interested in a smile makeover, talk to us today about your options.
- Q: Does my dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry procedures?
A: It depends on your coverage. We would be happy to help you understand your available coverage, so please ask us at your next appointment.
