If you have a cracked, stained or decaying tooth, a crown can help to restore your tooth back to health. Sitting like a cap over your existing tooth, a crown is shaped and matched to mimic the look of your existing teeth.
Crowns can also be used to replace a missing tooth using a dental implant for added strength, durability and longevity.
A bridge is similar to a crown but can replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Bridges are supported by healthy teeth on either side of a gap and can be an affordable treatment option for replacing missing teeth.Learn More

Composite and porcelain veneers are designed to mask minor dental flaws. Made from either composite that gets directly bonded to teeth or thin shells of porcelain placed over the front of teeth, they cover up stains, discolouration, chips or misaligned teeth.
Our dentists expertly custom-design your veneers to suit your natural tooth colour, shape and overall facial appearance:
Tooth bonding is a popular cosmetic treatment used to correct minor chips, cracks, stains, gaps or worn down teeth.
The process involves using a composite resin that is applied and bonded directly onto the tooth surface, repairing any previous damage and enhancing the overall appearance. It's also a cheaper alternative to veneers.
Cosmetic dentists access a range of skills and techniques to functionally and cosmetically enhance a smile. Cosmetic dentistry is carried out by a general dentist who has trained in various aesthetic dentistry programs to learn the best ways to provide treatment.

Most dental patients will be able to benefit from some cosmetic procedures but this route isn't always the right choice for every patient. Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, your oral hygiene must be of a sufficient standard and your dentist must be satisfied that you're not showing any signs of tooth decay or gum disease.
Occasionally cosmetic dentistry may not be a suitable option for some patients. On consultation with your dentist, he or she will work with you to determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for cosmetic dentistry.
The main benefit of cosmetic dentistry is in helping to improve your appearance. However, by closing or altogether removing small spaces and gaps between teeth there is also less room for food and other substances to collect, making brushing and flossing easier and more effective. This therefore improves the health of your mouth as well as the appearance. Certain procedures, such as implants, can also slow down or halt the progression of bone loss where teeth are missing.
For many patients, cosmetic dentistry also offers benefits for their confidence, as the treatments improve the overall appearance of their teeth and smile.
If you have damaged, worn down or missing teeth, or are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry may have a solution for you. Your dentist can discuss your particular problems and explain what treatment options are available, as well as advising on the costs associated with each treatment and what level of improvement you should be able to achieve.
