When working with a cosmetic dentist, you should feel free to communicate your thoughts on what you hope to gain from cosmetic surgery. Dr Gurinder Chahal will work with you to create a plan that considers your wants, needs and expectations. You will be given a review of the surgery or dentistry involved as well as the knowledge of any side effects, risks or alternative options in your treatment. By considering different cosmetic dentistry options and their costs, you can also decide on the course of dental procedures that is right for you. Dr Gurinder Chahal at Oxford Family Dental in Port Coquitlam, BC will make procedure recommendations based on the condition of your teeth and gums after oral exams and diagnostic tests. Some common cosmetic procedures are teeth whitening, bonding, bridges and veneers.
Veneers are coverings placed over and bonded to your original teeth. They are often made of porcelain but may be ceramic. Veneers create a realistic tooth look by the way light reflects off of the ceramic or porcelain material. They are also matched in colour to the rest of your teeth to give you a natural smile. Bridges fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. They create a support system for the surrounding teeth. If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, Dr Gurinder Chahal may want to use a bonding procedure. Bonding is a composite resin, enamel-like material that is coloured, shaped and hardened to fit your tooth and fill in cracks or chips. If your teeth and gums are healthy and your main goal in cosmetic dentistry is a whiter smile, teeth whitening may be the only procedure you want or need.
