Too embarrassed to smile? Cosmetic dentistry can definitely enhance our self esteem. Your million dollar smile is just a phone call away. Let Dr. Ducasse be your go-to North York Cosmetic Dentist for veneers, contouring, bonding and ceramic crowns.
Porcelain veneers can really brighten up your smile. They are thin yet durable porcelain "tooth fronts" which are bonded onto the tooth. It is a simple procedure with only minimal tooth reduction needed. Veneers can be used to hide broken or damaged teeth, correct aging smile lines, close spaces, change the colour of teeth and straighten crooked teeth instantly.
This technique can be used to alter the shape of worn or chipped teeth—providing the damage is not too great. Dr. Ducasse can smooth and gently reshape your enamel without the need for freezing. It's very similar to filing chipped fingernails.
Suitable for chipped teeth that may be out of alignment, bonding is a fast and painless way to allow your teeth to maintain their structure. It is an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite (plastic) materials are used to mask defects and close spaces. The results are instant, but be prepared to replace the plastic restorations as the material wears. Better long-term alternatives involve porcelain veneers or crowns.
A ceramic crown is useful for structurally weakened teeth. It encases the tooth’s surface by covering the imperfect tooth. Crowns provide excellent strength to the tooth while improving overall aesthetics. If your tooth can’t hold a new filling, is cracking and damaged by cavities, you may be a candidate for a ceramic crown which can be yours in two appointments.
Our goal at Dr. Ducasse’s cosmetic dental practice is to educate our patients so that we can come up with the right cosmetic dentistry treatment option that works for you. Don’t be afraid to take a bite out of life with a brand new million dollar smile! For more information about cosmetic dentistry, contact our office today.
