Cosmetic Dentistry

Giving you the smile you want

Description of Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Tooth whitening is a common cosmetic procedure that is non-invasive, inexpensive and the simplest procedure to improve the confidence of our patients with their smile. The process involves wearing custom-made trays containing whitening gel for a short period of time every day, until the desired whiteness is achieved. At Doctor Joe & Associates we have a Whitening for Life program which provides our patients who attend their continuing care appointments regularly with a complimentary tube of whitening gel at that appointment. Contact us for more information about our Whitening for Life program.

Bonding is the application of a tooth coloured resin material that is bonded to the tooth and cured with an LED curing light. It is expertly shaped to look nearly identical to the natural tooth structure and colour. Bonding is most commonly used to repair chips in teeth, fill gaps between teeth and alter their shape to improve the appearance of the smile. Bonding is a very non-invasive and cost-effective procedure that minimally compromises the natural tooth structure which makes it ideal for small cosmetic alterations.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are bonded to the teeth to the change the colour, size or shape. Instead of going all the way around the tooth like a crown, they only attach to the front surface. For patients that have healthy teeth but wish to alter the appearance of their smile, veneers are a great option.

We are specially trained to provide Invisalign services for our patients at Doctor Joe & Associates. Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth by using a progressive series of custom-made clear aligners for the patient. Wearing the aligners gradually shifts your teeth into their desired position for your ideal smile. Perhaps the biggest advantage of Invisalign over traditional braces is the limited interference with your daily life, the ability to easily keep your teeth clean, and the fact that most people won’t know you are straightening your teeth!
