Cosmetic Dentistry Toronto
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
While traditional dentistry focuses on treating dental diseases, cosmetic dentistry focuses on cosmetic aspects, improving the appearance of the dental formula (teeth and gums). You can have healthy teeth and gums and still be unhappy about some aspects like teeth whiteness, teeth alignment, the shape of your teeth, gaps between teeth, appearance of the gums, etc. Cosmetic dentistry can improve these aspects and help you feel more confident and proud of your smile.
What Does Cosmetic Dentistry Entail?
Cosmetic dentistry involves several procedures meant to address teeth and gum appearance problems. These procedures include but aren’t limited to the installation of braces, crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and dental implants. Generally, all procedures meant to improve your smile, including gum reshaping and cosmetic bonding, are part of cosmetic dentistry, such as:
- Braces: straighten crooked teeth
- Dental veneers: cover teeth that may be discolored or have discrepancies in size, length, or shape due to genetics, dental care, or other problems.
- Dental crowns: If the extent of tooth loss, or discolouration is significant, dental crowns may also be used to achieve an esthetic smile
- Dental bridges: cover for tooth loss
- Dental implants: act as roots for missing teeth
- Gum contouring: corrects gum appearance-related problems such as receding gums or gums covering the teeth excessively
- Dental bonding: repairs cracked or chipped teeth. The procedure can also close gaps in teeth or be used as an alternative to amalgam fillings.
Why Do You Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry has many pros. The most notable reasons for seeking our cosmetic dentistry services include:
1. Boost self-image
By correcting teeth and gum appearance problems like crooked teeth, receding gums, cracked teeth, discolored teeth, and missing teeth, you regain confidence in your smile. Let us help you bring back that beautiful smile.
2. Improve bite
Some cosmetic dentistry procedures, like the installation of braces, improve the alignment of teeth and bite in the process. An improved bite can make chewing easier and eliminate oral health problems like teeth grinding. Besides enhancing your image, you may also have an easier time eating because of other cosmetic dental procedures like the installation of dental bridges.
What’s more, an improved bite can bring forth health benefits. Dental issues like missing teeth can make it difficult to chew and consume a healthy diet. Dental bridges and implants can solve tooth loss problems allowing you to eat with ease.

Healthy teeth aren’t always dazzlingly white. Even with great brushing habits, your teeth might be stained from the foods and beverages you consume, genetics, or as part of the natural aging process.
At Annex Dentistry in Toronto, our teeth whitening experts believe you should have a smile you’re eager to share with the world. If your teeth aren’t as white as you’d like, we can help you have a smile you’ll love!
A porcelain veneer is a thin, tooth-shaped shell of porcelain that covers the front of each tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, similar to the way artificial fingernails work. Each porcelain veneer is a work of art, carefully crafted to fit your individual smile. They’re virtually undetectable & can dramatically improve your appearance. They’re also more durable & long-lasting than other cosmetic treatments.
Cosmetic bonding is often the best solution for issues like stains or a gap between two front teeth. Chipped teeth or teeth with jagged edges can also benefit from cosmetic bonding. It’s an effective way to quickly restore the appearance of your teeth and improve your smile. The goal of cosmetic bonding is to preserve as much of your original, natural teeth as possible while producing beautiful results and a smile you’ll love!
