Cosmetic dentistry is the process that we use to restore beautiful smiles for all our patients. We focus on the appearance of your smile, which leads to better oral health for you.
WHY GET COSMETIC DENTISTRY?
You might want to consider cosmetic dental treatments if your smile suffers from any of the following problems:
Over or underbites
Chipped and fractured teeth
While we can't guarantee a standard timespan for every cosmetic treatment, we can promise that you'll always get the same level of comfort during your appointment. Our dental specialists will listen to all your concerns and provide you with the best information about each treatment. We also want you to feel that each treatment is affordable, whether you're paying out of pocket or relying on a dental insurance plan.
To ensure a good long term result for the investment in your dental health, it is really important that you visit us for your 6 monthly active maintenance appointment.
SOME OF OUR POPULAR SERVICES:
Veneers are a thin discrete porcelain cover placed on the outside of the tooth. They make unsightly discoloured teeth the colour of your choice and can make crooked teeth appear straight. They are a very conservative cosmetic option that can't be used in all cases. Call Icon dental today to find out if this is an option for you.
An alternative to porcelain veneers is composite resin bonding. However there are limitations to their aesthetic result.
Another device we can use is a crown. When your teeth become decayed or broken, our dental team can repair the damage by placing a thin small cover over the top of the tooth. Designed to look and act like natural teeth, these crowns will preserve the structure of each tooth and keep your mouth healthy and strong. This procedure is ideal for heavily filled, worn down or cracked teeth.
MUSCLE RELAXANTS FOR DENTISTRY
Selective administration of muscle relaxants by a trained professional will:
Reduce the destruction of your teeth, gums and jaw joint by relaxing certain muscles of mastication.
Reduce discomfort and pain in your teeth, face, jaw joint and chewing muscles.
Reduce clenching events and their intensity
Reduce and eliminate tension headaches and migraines
Relax muscles that prevent your mouth from opening
Reduce "gummy smile" by relaxing the upper lips
Reduce excessive and uncontrolled salivary flow
Provide a beneficial side-effect of smoothing the lines between the brows and in the forehead when treated in this area.
Dento-facial aesthetics has revolutionised the concept of simply fixing your teeth for an aesthetically pleasing smile.
While cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve a beautiful smile, the face still ages and this can often distract from the wonderful results achieved through dental work (ie. wrinkles and folds around the mouth and face).
However, with dento-facial aesthetics we are able to compliment your smile by building a beautiful frame around your entire smile; as well as improve the health and appearance of your teeth.
