There Are Several Benefits to Cosmetic Treatment

Enhance Your Appearance

Our dentists in Fort St. John can use cosmetic dentistry to eliminate many imperfections that affect your smile. We can make your teeth look straighter, brighter, and healthier to enhance your natural appearance.

Boost Your Confidence

Have you ever felt the urge to hide your smile because you feel self-conscious about dental flaws? With cosmetic treatment, you can feel proud of your teeth and show off your smile with confidence. 

Improve Your Dental Health

While cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your teeth, certain procedures also improve your health. Dental implants, for example, will repair gaps in your smile and also prevent oral conditions like bone recession.

Present Your Best Self

Did you know that your smile is one of the first things people notice about you? Having healthy, beautiful teeth can encourage others to see you in a more positive light, which can enhance your personal and professional life.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Options

We have solutions for virtually every cosmetic dental imperfection. Based on your goals, our dentists may recommend one or several of these advanced dental treatments:

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin shell that fits over the front of the tooth to cover cosmetic imperfections such as gaps, misalignment, or severe discoloration that does not respond to professional teeth whitening. During treatment, your cosmetic dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of the tooth and bond the veneer to the surface. Veneers are a natural-looking treatment option that can give your smile a straighter, healthier-looking appearance.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding uses a resin material that is hardened with a UV light to correct minor gaps, chips, and cracks. Unlike veneers, dental bonding requires only a gentle etching in the surface of the tooth before the resin material is applied, meaning your dental bonding is reversible. The resin used during your treatment is shade-matched to your natural teeth so it's virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.

Teeth Whitening

If you have discolored teeth, professional teeth whitening can address surface stains and brighten your smile. Teeth whitening is an inexpensive option that can give you results in just a single appointment. Our professional whitening formulas are safe for most patients and much more effective than over-the-counter alternatives. For your convenience, our cosmetic dentists offer both in-office and take-home whitening treatment options.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also referred to as a cap, is a tooth-shaped cover that fits over a tooth that is damaged due to trauma or decay. Our crowns are made from high-quality materials like porcelain and can last a decade or more. Not only does a crown restore the appearance of an existing tooth, it also provides strength and protects the natural tooth structure. Additionally, a crown can be supported by a dental implant to completely replace a missing tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. Implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures are great options for replacing missing teeth. Implants are also the only treatment option that can prevent the jawbone atrophy that occurs with tooth loss. The implant fuses to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, acting as a prosthetic tooth root and giving the bone the stimulation it needs.

Smile Makeover

Sometimes you just can't address all your cosmetic dental concerns with a single procedure. If you are looking for more extensive enhancement, you should consider a smile makeover. A smile makeover is a treatment plan that combines multiple dentistry techniques. In some cases, we can complete several procedures in a single appointment and achieve the results you want in one visit.  Find out if a custom-designed smile makeover is right for you by scheduling a consultation at our Fort St. John office today.

Let's Take a Closer Look At Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a porcelain shell that is placed over a tooth to cover imperfections. If your smile has noticeable gaps between teeth, stains that won't respond to whitening, or minor chips and cracks, this solution can easily conceal them in a flattering way. The dentists at Apex Dental in Fort St. John, BC, can enhance your smile with natural-looking veneers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry treatments?

Treatments performed for purely cosmetic purposes don't qualify for insurance coverage; however, if you need a treatment such as a crown to repair a tooth, it will qualify for coverage, and you can count on our dentistry practice in Fort St. John to make it look as real and flattering as possible.

How much do cosmetic dentistry treatments cost?

Because each treatment plan is tailored to a patient's individual needs, it is impossible to give a cost estimate without an initial consultation at our Fort St. John, BC, dental practice. At your consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your cosmetic goals to create a treatment plan to address those specific concerns. Once a treatment plan is developed, we can give you an estimate.

I have some oral health issues. Can I still undergo cosmetic treatment?

It is important to address any oral health issues, like tooth decay and gum disease, before you undergo cosmetic treatments. If your issues impact your ability to eat or speak, treatment options such as root canal therapy, dental fillings, or extractions may be needed before your dentist can address your cosmetic concerns. Our dentistry practice offers a range of general dentistry treatments to improve your oral health.

I have stained or discolored teeth. Can’t I just use store-bought whitening treatments?

Whereas professional teeth whitening uses a powerful bleaching solution to remove stubborn stains in as little as one treatment, the whitening solutions in store-bought kits are usually weak and often take weeks before they yield noticeable results. If you prefer at-home treatment, our dentists can provide you with a professional whitening kit that can be used from the comfort of your home.

What is the difference between general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry?

General dentistry focuses on your overall dental health, whereas cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your smile. Our dentists are experienced in both fields and provide treatment options as general dentists and cosmetic dentists. They can improve both the health and appearance of your smile through custom treatment plans.
