Cosmetic Dentistry

What is Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. Most people think of tooth whitening or porcelain veneers, but a cosmetic dentist can provide much more.

A skilled, experienced cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Hermig Ohanian, can help you to improve your appearance, your smile, even your self-esteem and confidence. Today, cosmetic dentistry has continued to evolve to where cosmetic dentists can address functional and aesthetic patient concerns. Here are some of the many services that fall under cosmetic dentistry:

Teeth Whitening

If you have stained or worn teeth, let our team brighten your smile with teeth whitening. Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a non-invasive dental procedure to change the colour of the natural tooth enamel. It is also one of the fastest ways to enhance your smile. Whiter teeth have now become the top aesthetic concern of many patients -we offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening solutions. People with discoloured, stained or dull teeth benefit from professional teeth whitening. The treatment works best on topical, extrinsic or surface stains.


Porcelain Veneers

Transform your smile today!

Porcelain veneers are an excellent method of restoring your smile. Lasting, durable and esthetically beautiful, they are well suited to improve the appearance of their smile. Porcelain veneers are a popular choice to fix cosmetic problems. This can include making slight position alterations, or to change the tooth shape, size and/or colour. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front surfaces of teeth. They are custom crafted by hand to precisely fit your teeth by a highly experienced dental technician. Once bonded to your teeth, they are strong and virtually undetectable.


Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a technique that can be very effective and relatively inexpensive for altering the appearance of your teeth. Bonding is also a great way to see how your smile can be transformed prior to choosing a more permanent or lasting treatment.

Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a protective covering placed over a tooth to protect it from fracturing. Crowns are generally recommended for a tooth with a large restoration, a fracture, or a tooth that has had endodontic treatment. Crowns can be made using noble alloys like gold for strength and ceramics for natural looking aesthetics.

A bridge is a series of crowns that are linked together and is designed to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are non-removable restorations and are often part of comprehensive restorative treatment. They can be supported by dental implants and can rejuvenate your appearance and enhance your ability to speak, chew and smile.
