What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Aesthetic and Health Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Whether people are looking for procedures in cosmetic dentistry, North York, Richmond Hill and Markham residents know there are also health benefits in addition to correcting flaws in your teeth and making you look younger.
Maintains facial structure
Teeth play a big part in maintaining the shape of a patient’s face. When teeth are missing the cheeks can cave. This can make people look a lot older. A dental bridge helps people maintain the shape of their face and slow the aging process.
Restores your smile
When people have visible missing teeth, it affects their confidence and can make them feel self-conscious. They can’t fully express their smile and emotion when they interact with their friends, colleagues or family. A tooth bridge can restore their appearance so they can live confidently.
Keeps your teeth in place
Teeth mostly hold each other in place. When a tooth is removed, the gap can cause other teeth to shift out of place. A dental bridge can prevent this shifting.
Improves your bite
When a tooth is missing, it affects how the upper and lower teeth come together when the mouth is closed. This can result in a sore jaw, misaligned jaw or crooked teeth over time. Placing a dental bridge restores your bite pattern and provides equal support around your mouth.
Maintain the ability to chew and speak properly
The gap from missing teeth can make it hard to chew foods and speak properly. A tooth bridge can eliminate these problems.

Inlays and onlays
These are indirect fillings for teeth that have mild to moderate decay or there isn’t enough tooth structure to support a filling. If there is no damage to the tooth’s cusps, an inlay is placed directly on the tooth. If the cusp or a bigger portion of the tooth is damaged, an onlay is used to cover the whole tooth’s surface.
Crowns are sometimes called caps that completely covers a tooth to restore its shape and appearance. These are needed for a variety of reasons including protecting a weak tooth, cover discoloured teeth, hold a dental bridge in place or cover a dental implant.
These are custom-made shells that is usually made of porcelain to resemble natural teeth. They are often used for people who have crooked teeth, have cracked or damaged enamel to noticeable gaps between two teeth. Our dentist applies the veneer to the front of each tooth using a dental adhesive.
