Contrary to the image the media presents to the public; humans don’t naturally have straight, white teeth. Instead, it is normal for someone to have a smile that is crooked, misshapen, discolored, or uneven. At Kensington Dental Clinic in Edmonton, Alberta, we believe the best smile is one that is healthy and strong. However, we also understand how someone can have a healthy natural smile and still be dissatisfied with their teeth. This is why we offer cosmetic dentistry to our patients in Edmonton, Alberta.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a specialty field that focuses on changing the appearance of the teeth without affecting overall function. This means our dentist can perform treatments like teeth whitening
, which brighten the teeth but still allow you to eat and chew normally.
At Kensington Dental Clinic, we employ a skilled staff capable of handling a broad range of procedures. After your initial consultation, our dentist will sit down with you to discuss any cosmetic changes you desire for your teeth. A custom treatment plan can then be created to address any perceived issues or problems.
Types of Treatment Available
Numerous procedures qualify as cosmetic. Cosmetic dentistry has rapidly increased in popularity around the world, but particularly in the United States. Out of all of the treatments, perhaps the most frequently requested is dental teeth whitening, which can eliminate discoloration and give you a brighter smile. Other treatments currently available include:
Who Can Receive Treatment?
Cosmetic dentistry is open to patients who are 16 years of age or older, but exceptions can be made for children who are suffering from severe dental issues related to their teeth. In general, many forms of insurance do not cover a cosmetic treatment that is not medically necessary, so it’s important to contact the company about coverage.
Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry
Once you have had your check-up, you might be recommended additional treatment to keep your teeth in good shape. We are trained to handle a great variety of restorative and cosmetic dental work, including fillings, crowns, veneers, and tooth-whitening procedures. We understand that these procedures can be stressful to some patients, and as part of our commitment to an easy and relaxing experience, we encourage those patients to inform us and discuss the best way to go through with the procedure.
