Cosmetic Dentistry – More Than Just a Pretty Smile

A beautiful smile can change your life. But when you’re unhappy with your teeth, it chips away at your personal and professional confidence. Cosmetic dentistry offers solutions to enhance the appearance of your smile, helping you feel your absolute best. If you’re in Calgary and dreaming of a smile transformation, this guide is for you!

Popular Cosmetic Procedures: What’s Right For Me?

Let’s explore some standard cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at The Port Dental Clinic and who might benefit from each:

  • Professional Teeth Whitening: Over time, your teeth may become stained or discolored due to various factors such as coffee, wine, or aging. Our professional whitening procedure, unlike over-the-counter kits, uses advanced techniques to deliver significantly brighter results. Depending on your preference and schedule, you can choose between a single visit or a customized take-home system. Ideal for: Most adults with healthy teeth. Results vary, but noticeable brightening is typical.
  • Dental Veneers: These thin, porcelain shells are bonded to the front of your teeth, masking a wide array of imperfections. Veneers are truly transformative!
  • Ideal for: Chipped teeth, severe discoloration, gaps, slightly misaligned teeth, uneven shapes
  • Invisalign: The discreet way to straighten your smile! Invisalign uses clear, custom-made aligners to shift teeth into their desired position gradually.
  • Ideal for: Mild to moderate crowding or spacing issues. Invisalign is also an excellent option for adults who don’t want the look of traditional braces.
  • Dental Bonding: This versatile technique uses tooth-colored resin to reshape teeth and correct minor flaws. Bonding is often a same-day procedure.
  • Ideal for: Small chips, closing gaps, reshaping a single tooth. Bonding is often less expensive than veneers.

The Port Dental Difference: Your Personalized Smile Plan

At The Port Dental Clinic, we understand that your smile is unique! That’s why we start with a thorough consultation. We’ll discuss your goals, evaluate your oral health, and outline all suitable treatment options. We may recommend a single procedure or a combination for the best possible outcome.

Realistic Expectations

  • Results: Cosmetic dentistry can be life-changing but may not deliver ‘Hollywood perfection.’ We prioritize natural-looking results that enhance your smile without appearing artificial. It’s important to note that, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. During your consultation, our team will discuss these in detail to ensure you understand clearly and can make an informed decision.
  • Cost: It’s important to note that cosmetic procedures generally aren’t covered by insurance. However, we offer transparent pricing, and our team can discuss financing options with you, if needed, to make your smile transformation more affordable and accessible.

Maintenance: Even with cosmetic dentistry, excellent home care, and regular checkups are essential to maintaining your beautiful new smile. This includes brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, and scheduling regular checkups with our team to ensure your oral health remains in top condition.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for You?

The best way to find out is to book a consultation! But generally, if you answer YES to any of these questions, it’s worth exploring:

  • Do you hide your smile in photos or when meeting new people?
  • Are you unhappy with your teeth’ color, shape, or spacing?
  • Does the condition of your teeth affect your self-esteem?
