Cosmetic Dentistry Services We Offer

 

Crowns

crown Cosmetic DentistryOne of the most common types of dental restorations used to treat decay, cracks, and tooth damage are dental crowns. Also known as “dental caps”, crowns are highly effective at restoring and protecting problematic teeth. Once the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth is removed, a crown is placed on top. Compared to other dental restorations like inlays or onlays, crowns cover the entire tooth’s visible surface. For this reason, they are well suited for heavier types of decay or damage.

Crowns can be made from various materials including, gold alloy, porcelain/ceramic, or a mixture of these substances. Boisson Dental Group will personally work with you to choose the right crown for your smile. We also offer CEREC CAD/Cam Dentistry which allows us to create attractive dental restorations in one visit. Contact us at info@boissondental.ca to schedule your appointment today.

Bridges

bridges Cosmetic DentistryRecapture the smile you’ve always wanted. At Boisson Dental Group we offer bridges for people who want to replace missing teeth and improve the appearance and functionality of their smile. Bridges are a type of dental restoration that utilize an artificial tooth to fill in the missing gaps. Known for their high stability and aesthetics, bridges allow you to speak and chew with confidence. A dental bridge is natural looking and blends in with the rest of your smile.

Bridges are semi-permanent meaning that they can only be removed by your dentist. But once placed, they are extremely durable and can last for many years. To find out if dental bridges are right for you, contact Boisson Dental Group at 587 771 7668 or info@boissondental.ca to set up an appointment.

Teeth Whitening

This process is repeated several times and during this time, the gel quickly lifts off surface stains, leading to a whiter smile.

These kits include the whitening gel and mouth trays to allow you to whiten your smile in the comfort of your home.

Porcelain Crowns

porcelain-crowns-300x287 Cosmetic DentistryInlays, onlays and crowns are called indirect restorations, because the restoration is fabricated outside of the mouth, instead of being built in layers directly onto the teeth like a filling.

An indirect restoration is called an inlay if it covers part of a tooth, without extending to a cusp (pointed tip of tooth). It is an onlay if it extends to replace a tooth’s cusp. And if it completely covers the top surface of the tooth, it is called a crown or cap.

A crown is known as a full-coverage restoration. Crowns can be used to hold together cracked teeth, cover root canal treatments, cap teeth that have been damaged by decay, and help those teeth be more resistant to further decay.

Crowns can also be used to correct tooth colour and alignment defects, as well as correct structural damage to individual teeth. Having a crown placed is more invasive than getting a veneer, but it provides more reliability when added bite-strength is required.

Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth, then the restoration is shaped to match the part of the teeth it will replace. The restoration is attached with dental cement.

Inlays, onlays and crowns are more effective than fillings in reinforcing teeth to withstand biting forces. Indirect restorations are also more resistant to further decay. If a tooth’s original structure is too compromised to support a filling, an indirect restoration can provide fantastic, long-lasting, beautiful results.

Porcelain Fixed Bridges

porcelain-fixed-bridges-225x300 Cosmetic DentistryA fixed bridge is a dental restoration that is fixed to surrounding teeth. The bridge fills (bridges) the gap left by the missing teeth, preventing the surrounding teeth from moving into the gap and becoming misaligned.

A fixed bridge is less invasive than a dental implant. In cases where the surrounding teeth are strong enough to support the bridge, it is an excellent solution for maintaining jaw-alignment and creating a beautiful smile. Your dentist can craft a bridge that will perfectly match the colour of your surrounding teeth, and shape it to enhance your smile!

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is a very precise and systematic approach to rebuilding a worn out or broken down bite utilizing porcelain crowns and/or bridges or implants to restore function to those who have lost it.

These treatments are designed to provide the patient with better oral health, improve their bite and allow them to feel confident again when they smile.

Fillers

BOTOX-vs-Fillers-diagram-640x385 Cosmetic Dentistry
Boisson Dental Group is now one of the few dental offices in Alberta that is certified to provide facial fillers after just completing the training with the University of Alberta. Facial fillers help us to restore the volume of your face that has been lost due to the natural aging process. We are able to treat areas of the lower face from the nose down at this time. This includes restoring volume to the lips, erasing marionette lines and smile lines (nasolabial folds), and redefining the jaw line. Fillers are safe and effective and give IMMEDIATE results. Fillers used are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is resorbed by the body over 9 – 24 months depending on the patient and the product used. This is a great addition when used with Botox to treat the lines of the upper face. Give us a call to set up your consultation and we would be happy to discuss this great new service with you.

Invisalign

Fotolia_62056172_XS Cosmetic DentistryDr. Boisson has been providing Invisalign treatment for many years and utilizes the ITERO Element scanner which eliminates messy impressions and allows us to conduct a preview of the outcome of Invisalign treatment in just a few minutes. The Invisalign system offers the results of braces, without wearing braces. The systems is a series of custom-molded clear trays that guide teeth into proper alignment. Invisalign trays are virtually invisible when worn, and are removable for mealtimes and cleaning. It’s a discreet, convenient, modern alternative to traditional metal braces that are attached for months or years.

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen is a safe and effective method of straightening teeth for both adults and children without the look or encumbrance of metal braces and brackets. The Invisalign process involves a series of clear aligners which are custom designed for each patient and replaced every two weeks. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable, and easy to remove. Invisalign retainers are removed during activities such as eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, making oral hygiene easier to maintain than with traditional braces which remain in the mouth.

Treatment with Invisalign generally takes from 6- 18 months, and cost is comparable to that of most other cosmetic orthodontic treatments. With Invisalign, you can smile confidently during and after your treatment.
