Thinking of improving the appearance of your smile? From changing the size, shape, colour and alignment of your teeth to a complete smile makeover, cosmetic dentistry is the discipline you are looking for.
Removing stains and discolouration from the teeth is called teeth whitening. The level of whiteness that can be achieved depends on the level of the initial discolouration.
You can whiten your teeth with either a take-home kit or in our office.
With take-home kits, you’ll need to place trays with a whitening gel in your mouth for about 30 minutes every day for about 1- 2 weeks before you notice any significant results.
In-office teeth whitening involves the activation of the whitening gel placed on your teeth with a special light source for about an hour.
Most teeth lighten about 7-10 shades by the end of the session. Ideal for busy people!

Porcelain Veneers (also known as dental porcelain laminates or dental veneers)
Porcelain veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution to stained, chipped, or slightly misaligned teeth. They are wafer-thin shells of tooth-coloured materials bonded to the front surface of teeth. They can also be used to close spaces between teeth.
Gaps between teeth can be concealed using tooth-coloured composite materials through the process called bonding. It can also correct colour and shape of teeth or repair chipped / decayed teeth. Typically, this procedure can be completed in a single visit.
