You can get straighter or whiter teeth, with our range of Cosmetic Dentistry options at Grasslands Dental Care in Kamloops.
The simple truth is that our teeth yellow as we age. Plus, they can get stained by colas, coffee, red wine and more. So if you're considering whiter teeth – a whitening treatment might be right for you.
Naturally, before having your teeth whitened, you'll need to schedule a professional cleaning. This could help remove surface stains and make your teeth lighter. You'll also want to allow about 90 minutes for the treatment.
As with any dental treatment, make sure to talk to your dental healthcare team before making any decisions. And remember, your Grasslands Dental Care team is here to advise you any time.
Thinking about a smile makeover but not sure what to expect? Your Grasslands Dental Care team can help you achieve your best possible smile starting with a consultation.
This is where you sit down with Dr. Oppenheim to discuss what you like, what you don't like – your smile goals. From there, Dr. Oppenheim and the Grasslands Dental Care team will put together a treatment plan.
Inlays and onlays are fillings that help correct chipped, misshapen, broken, asymmetrical, or decayed and damaged teeth. They are custom-made for your teeth and are similarly coloured to the enamel.
Inlays – Fit just inside the cusps (or bumps) of a tooth, similar to a composite filling.
Onlays – Can help cover surface areas by wrapping over one or more edges of the tooth.
With bonding, we can match the bond to the shade, translucency and texture of your teeth as closely as possible to help correct imperfections such as gaps between teeth, spots and discolourations.
Our dental team will do their best to match the shade of your existing teeth by applying a resin to the affected teeth – it's a process similar to filling a cavity. It's referred to as bonding because an adhesive agent is used to actually bond the resin to the tooth structure.
The resin is hardened (cured) with a curing light and then shaped, contoured, and polished to provide a consistent texture and natural appearance.
