When a patient undergoes one of our cosmetic procedures and looks in the mirror for the very first time, we love watching their reaction. They are so happy they may laugh, weep with joy, and even hug us. If you want to enhance your smile, we can help you. Dr. Virk studied extensively to learn the latest cosmetic techniques and services. If you would like to see how Cosmetic Dentistry can improve your smile, we may recommend any of the following treatments:

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the essence of cosmetic dentistry. With this service, a small, thin sheet of porcelain is applied to the tooth surface to change the size, shape and colour of your teeth. How can something so small cause such a dramatic change? That’s the beauty of the veneer, it’s all in the artistry.

If you have stained, discoloured, unevenly spaced, chipped or slightly crooked front teeth, we will be glad to listen to the changes you have in mind, evaluate your situation during our exam, and show you examples of the end result before any treatment is performed. When we prescribe veneers, we can apply them in just a few appointments. The result is beautifully proportioned, brilliantly white teeth that create a stunning smile. Now that’s improving on Mother Nature!

Crowns
Like veneers, porcelain crowns (or caps) can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. Crowns cover the entire surface area of the tooth – from the top to just below the gum line. If your teeth are cracked or damaged, we may recommend crowns to strengthen and mask imperfections in the teeth. Crowns can close the spaces between teeth, change the angulations of teeth, and improve the appearance of damaged teeth. This helps prevent weaker teeth from cracking or breaking and effectively reduces or eliminates pain, sensitivity, and difficulty with chewing and speaking. If you’re interested in what crowns can do for you, talk to us. We would be happy to explain the benefits of crowns. You can also learn more about crowns in our Restorative Dentistry section.

Whitening

These days, everyone is trying to obtain whiter, brighter teeth. With so many products in dental offices and on store shelves, many people come to our practice looking for safe, quick ways to whiten their teeth. Our office offers several options for brightening your smile.

In-Office whitening: This method involves a safe laser activated gel used to whiten your teeth several shades in about an hour. You'll get instant gratification when you see immediate results in just one appointment and walk out with a smile you love. The effects of treatment generally last for six months to five years depending on your consumption of tobacco, coffee and other staining substances. In order to keep you smiling brightly for years, we provide a custom kit for occasional one night touchups (usually used twice yearly) for a nominal fee.

Take home system: Our office offers both ZOOM and Nite White Take Home whitening systems. Both safe and effective systems, they involve a gel solution that is applied overnight using a clear, custom fitted tray. In most cases, you can achieve exceptional whitening results in less than 6 days with ZOOM and 10 days with Nite White. Once your teeth are whitened, occasional overnight touchups will be required to keep your smile its brightest.

Professional Whitestrips: Similar to but stronger than the whitening strips sold in drugstores, we offer Crest Professional Strength Whitestrips. These adhesive strips are applied to the teeth twice daily for up to 21 days.

Tooth Coloured Fillings
Tooth coloured fillings have always presented a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional silver and amalgam fillings. Thanks to changes in recent dental technology, tooth coloured fillings are now also stronger and more durable then their metallic counterparts. While silver and amalgam fillings may crack and leak, irritating the gums and nerves in the tooth, smaller tooth coloured fillings may last a lifetime without ever requiring repair, while larger ones can last for many years with the appropriate care. More importantly, tooth coloured fillings feel and function more like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with increased confidence and comfort. If you have silver or amalgam fillings, talk to us during your visit about how tooth coloured fillings can change your smile and your dental health.
