Would you like to make cosmetic changes to the appearance of your teeth and smile?
Dr. Warren provides general dentistry services to make cosmetic changes to the contours, spacing, and colour of your teeth. We’ll work with you to help you determine the ways in which you want to improve the appearance of your smile and to recommend cosmetic solutions that will help you reach your desired appearance.
Veneers are used to change the shape or colour of your teeth or to change the appearance of teeth that appear crooked or misshapen. They are small, thin porcelain shells that are designed to fit over your existing teeth. The porcelain can be coloured to match your desired shade for your teeth and it is resistant to staining.
Veneers are placed in a two-stage process. On the first visit, your teeth are prepared for the veneers. We remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth to be treated, and then we take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to form the veneers. On the second visit, we check your veneers for fit and appearance and then bond them to your teeth.
Your teeth can be reshaped or chips and imperfections can be removed with contouring. Using special tools Dr. Warren removes a small amount of your enamel to achieve the desired cosmetic effect.
Resin bonding treats teeth that have been chipped, are unevenly worn or stained, or which you would like reshaped. Using a soft tooth-coloured resin we fill in gaps and spaces or cover over stained or chipped areas. Then we use a special light to harden the resin. Once it is hard we use contouring tools to shape and smooth the resin to blend with the rest of your tooth.
Ceramic crowns are designed to closely match the appearance of natural teeth. They use a metal-free ceramic material that mimics the shading and translucence of natural teeth. We use ceramic crowns to cover teeth that are misshapen, badly stained or damaged; or to close gaps between teeth.
