Cosmetic Care

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are composed of a thin shell that is placed over the front of the affected tooth to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as chips, cracks, stains, or misshapen teeth. At Gateway Village Dental, our team offers veneers made with a durable porcelain material to create an especially natural-looking outcome. The custom-made porcelain veneers are bonded to the front of the tooth surface, producing a stunning smile transformation.

Benefits of Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a versatile treatment option that can be used to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Common issues that can be addressed by veneers include the following:
  • Chipped, cracked or otherwise damaged teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Eroded tooth enamel

Teeth Whitening

When people are asked what bothers them most about the appearance of their smile, many say yellow or discoloured teeth. Fortunately, teeth whitening can remove stains and noticeably lighten the colour of the teeth. As a result, the entire smile looks healthier and more youthful.

What does teeth whitening improve?

Teeth whitening lightens teeth that are stained, discolored or darkened because of any of the following:
  • Drinking dark-coloured beverages like coffee, tea, red wine – the colour pigments in these beverages stick to the tooth enamel, darkening it.
  • Use of tobacco – tar and nicotine give the teeth a yellowish colour.
  • The natural effects of aging – the outer shell of the tooth structure, called enamel, covers softer, darker tissue called dentin; with age, the layer of enamel gets thinner and reveals more of the yellowish dentin.
  • Trauma – teeth respond to a traumatic blow or injury by creating more dentin; this darkens the tooth.
  • Taking certain medications – antihistamines, high blood pressure medications and antibiotics are a few of the medications that can discolour teeth.
  • Poor oral hygiene habits.

Gum Contouring

Some patients are perfectly satisfied with the size, shape and color of their teeth—yet are self-conscious of their gums. Prominent or excessive gum tissue, also known as a “gummy smile,” can cover up a significant portion of the teeth, sometimes causing them to look uneven. This can make the teeth appear short and distract from your smile.
Our gum contouring treatment will remove excess tissue and recontour the gums so they look proportional and complement the teeth. The result is a more balanced gums-to-teeth ratio, producing the beautiful smile you desire.
Please contact our office today to learn more about our cosmetic dentistry options, or to schedule a consultation.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding can improve the appearance of teeth by either repairing or concealing concerns, such as chipped, cracked, worn or discoloured teeth. This strong, tooth-coloured resin is applied to the affected area and carefully shaped to look like your natural tooth. A special light is then used to harden this material, making it a permanent part of your tooth. Bonding is a more conservative alternative to restorations like porcelain veneers, which often require some degree of tooth preparation.
If you’d like to fix a chipped tooth or get rid of a gap between your teeth, contact Gateway Village Dental today to learn more about the possibilities of composite bonding.
