 Azarko Marketing  Friday, June 01, 2018

Cosmetic dental treatments are quickly growing in popularity throughout the greater Edmonton area. At the Azarko Dental Group dental clinic in Edmonton, we provide a variety of cosmetic dental care procedures to repair damaged teeth, improve oral health, prevent oral disease, remove tooth stains, and improve our patients' confidence in their smiles.

Curious about what cosmetic dental care can do for you? Here are the answers to some questions that you may have been afraid to ask.

Q: Is teeth whitening effective?

A: Yes, under the guidance of an Edmonton dentist, teeth whitening is a highly effective option for removing stains from discoloured teeth. At Azarko Dental Group, we offer a range of teeth whitening options, including in-office ZOOM!® whitening, at-home teeth whitening with custom bleaching trays, and Sheer White® self-applied whiteners. We can help you decide which option is best suited to your needs, preferences, and teeth whitening goals.

Q: Are there other options for whitening discoloured teeth?

A: Yes, there are options for whitening discoloured teeth other than bleaching. For teeth that are badly discoloured and decayed, your Edmonton dentist will likely recommend veneers. A veneer is a thin shell that is placed over top of the tooth surface, hiding any damage or discolouration. At the Azarko Dental Group Edmonton dental clinic, we also offer Lumineers® as an alternative to traditional veneers.

Q: Can cosmetic dental care correct the shape and size of my teeth?

A: Yes, cosmetic dental care procedures are a great option for correcting the shape and size of the teeth. Depending on the condition of your teeth, your Edmonton dentist may recommend a number of treatments. Veneers and Lumineers® can be used to correct tooth chips and misalignment, as can dental bonding. Dental bonding is essentially a white, tooth coloured resin that can be used to smooth and even out the appearance of the teeth.

Q: Can cosmetic dental care fix gap teeth?

A: Yes, dental bonding, veneers, and Lumineers® are all potential treatments for correcting gap teeth. Your dentist will examine your teeth and determine the best course of action. If the gap is too large to be corrected by these methods, then your dentist may also recommend a discreet orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign® clear braces.

Q: Am I a good candidate for cosmetic dental care procedures?

A: As long as you have relatively healthy teeth and gums, then you are likely a good candidate for many of the cosmetic dental care procedures described above. However, if you have tooth decay and gum disease, then these issues will need to be addressed before cosmetic treatments can take place. At Azarko Dental Group, we work to improve both the health and the look of our patients' smiles.
