Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments That Can Transform Your Smile

Everyone deserves to have a healthy and beautiful smile that they feel happy and confident to show off. However, for some people, it’s necessary to undergo cosmetic dental treatment to get the smile they want. Dental on Clarendon outlines some of the most common dental treatments that patients can seek out to transform their smile.

Teeth Whitening

The teeth can become stained and discoloured over time, especially with regular consumption of coffee, tea, red wine and other coloured beverages and foods. However, teeth whitening treatments are available that can make teeth whiter again. Patients can visit a dentist who can perform an in-chair teeth treatment for brighter, whiter teeth, or alternatively, take home whitening kits can be provided.


Veneers are thin shells made out of porcelain or composite resin material that cover the front surface of teeth. Their purpose is to resize, reshape or realign teeth, and they can also improve their shade. For porcelain veneers, treatment is done over the course of a few appointments, where the teeth will be prepped and have impressions taken of them. These impressions are taken to a laboratory where the veneers based on them will be made. Once the dentist has received the veneers, there will be a follow up appointment for them to be placed on the patient’s teeth.


Crowns can improve the shape, size, alignment and colour of teeth that have become cracked, chipped, damaged or have large fillings. Crowns can be made to cover a whole tooth or just cap the top of it. A dentist can arrange for crowns to be made that match the colour of the patient’s teeth and gums and also fit perfectly on top of the tooth being treated.


Invisalign treatment requires the patient to wear a set of custom-made clear aligners that are barely noticeable and are a highly recommended alternative to traditional metal braces. Their purpose is to slowly and gently move the teeth into a desired position. The aligners can be taken out whenever the patient wants to eat or needs to clean the aligners.

Dental Implants

Anyone with missing teeth can get dental implants, which are essential artificial teeth. These implants are surgically inserted into the jaw, are extremely sturdy, do not require any maintenance, and look exactly like real teeth. A dentist may recommend this treatment if they feel that other cosmetic treatments cannot achieve the desired results.
