Cosmetic Dentistry in Barrie, ON
When you think of cosmetic dentistry, do you picture involved and costly treatments?
These days, because of advancements in dental materials, techniques, and technology, just about any service we provide can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.
Our doctors will listen to your concerns and work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that makes sense for you. You deserve the best that dentistry has to offer, so we use the highest quality dental materials available today to create restorations that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing.
If you’re considering enhancing your smile, Dr. Joo and Dr. Moore will create a plan that will help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of!
In the past, we’ve only had a few alternatives for filling teeth. But today we can use composite resin, a strong and durable material. From an aesthetic perspective, the advantage of using composite material is that it allows us to customize a shade for you that matches that of your natural tooth enamel.
Our doctors carefully shape the composite material to match the contours of your tooth. This allows us to repair broken or chipped teeth, replace old metal fillings, and even alter the shape of the tooth altogether for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
All-Porcelain Dental Crowns
There are lots of materials available from which we can fabricate a new dental crown. We’ve chosen to use all-porcelain or ceramic crowns because the material is durable and looks as close to natural tooth enamel as possible.
Dental crowns are mainly used to restore and protect a damaged tooth. However, their natural appearance allows us to use them for aesthetic purposes like altering the shape of a tooth or concealing a tooth that is severely discolored.
It can be tempting to use over-the-counter whiteners to brighten your teeth. But you can spend a lot of time and money and still not achieve the same results as you would with professional teeth whitening.
One of the reasons for this is the prescription-strength whitening gel. Store-bought whiteners are not nearly as strong, which is why they take so long to show any real results.
Also, every tooth whitening kit we provide comes with a completely customized tray. The tray is made using dental impressions, which allows the gel to come in contact with all surfaces of your teeth. The results are a beautiful, bright smile that improves your appearance and boosts your self-confidence!
Treating “The Black Triangle”
We often hear from patients that they’re unhappy with the unwanted spaces or "dental black triangles" that have developed between their teeth at the gum line. Unfortunately, the eye is drawn to this space, which can leave teeth looking old and dark.
Black triangles can form because of the shape of some teeth, or, more commonly, gum recession. When the gums surrounding your teeth recede because of periodontal disease, you may see these black triangles start to appear. Left untreated, they’ll just grow larger and more obvious over time.
At Park Place Dental, our dentists use the Bioclear Matrix System to eliminate the black triangle. This is an alternative to cosmetic treatments like veneers or crowns. We carefully shape the specially formulated material to close the space and dramatically improve your smile.
