Design your smile, your way!
Cosmetic dentistry has evolved greatly, putting beautiful, healthy-looking smiles within reach for more patients. If you are missing teeth, have discoloration, gaps in your teeth, old silver fillings, receding or advanced gumlines or simply desire a more aligned smile, we can help. There are many noninvasive and cost effective treatments aimed at correcting and enhancing the appearance and function of a patient’s mouth. Dr. Boisson is committed to staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in dental technology.
CEREC stands for:
Chairside: The technology is in the dental operatory and used while you are in the chair
Economical: The procedure is economical for both dentist and patient
Restorations: The procedure restores your tooth to its natural beauty, function, and strength
Esthetic: The restorations are metal-free and tooth-colored
Ceramic: High-strength ceramics are used that are close in composition to your natural tooth structure.
The CEREC machine is used to create high quality dental restorations for the patient. Dr. Boisson has been using this technology since 1990 with decades of great results.
As we age, our teeth tend to become more discolored. Beverages such as coffee, tea and wine also don’t help. Lucking, Boisson Dental Group in Grande Prairie offers professional bleaching and teeth whitening services for you. This is actually a fairly quick and easy procedure. We simply apply a whitening gel to your teeth, which remains on for 15 minutes. When removed, the gel lifts off surface stains to reveal a whiter, brighter smile. This treatment is far more effective and long lasting than drug-store whitening kits.
At the mention of braces, what comes to mind for most people is a kid with a big metal brackets. Invisalign has revolutionized the way we correct the alignment of the teeth, and is safely and effectively used by patients of all ages. The Invisalign system utilizes clear aligners to gradually shift the teeth into place. The Invisalign system is just as effective as metal braces, and more discreet and comfortable for the wearer.
A dental implant consist of an artificial root made of titanium metal. The metal root is implanted into the gum line where the missing tooth used to be. Dental implants are usually done in about two or three visits. During the first visit, the dentist will place the dental implant into the jawbone beneath the gum tissue. Once the gum line has healed and the implant is successfully bonded to the jawbone, a custom-created prosthetic tooth wtih be affixed to the titanium post. Dental implants are designed to closely mimic the look and function of natural teeth, and are a permanent solution for patients who are missing one or more teeth.
Making the decision to embark on cosmetic dentistry is a personal one. In our experience, many of these procedures do much more than just enhance the appearance of a patient’s smile. In many cases they also restore functionality to the mouth and give the patient a boost of confidence. We have witness many patients’ smiles be completely transformed. We work with the patient to understand their individual goals for their smiles in order to formulate a treatment plan. We look forward to serving you in achieving a smile that you can proud to show off!
