Your smile dictates how you feel about yourself and your emotions in any given situation. It is the ultimate expression of who you are! A beautiful smile can increase your self-esteem, your confidence and your appearance. First impressions do count and an exquisite smile is something that no one will ever forget!
Cosmetic Dentistry is the revolutionary dental technology transforming ‘everyday’ smiles into pieces of art. The intricate combination of art and dental science that is Cosmetic Dentistry enables you to transform your teeth into the smile of your dreams.
Slight imperfections with your teeth can drastically affect the way you see yourself and hinder you from looking and feeling your best. At Chermside West Dental we understand that everyone desires a beautiful, natural smile and through the application of Cosmetic Dentistry procedures we can help you achieve this goal.
Prior to Cosmetic Dentistry little could be done to repair dental flaws. Chipped, crooked or stained teeth were dismissed and not restored. Cosmetic Dentistry treatments are designed to create beautiful, natural, exceptional smiles! Today, through the dramatic advancements in the field of Cosmetic Dentistry all smiles can be aesthetically enhanced.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a crown or bridge in place.
Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence. They are secure and can offer freedom from the troublesome clicks and wobbles of loose dentures.
The success rate for dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.

Dental veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry and are used to create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. Veneers can replace chipped, uneven, or spaced teeth with well-aligned, shapely teeth. Even better, the translucent ceramic quality of today’s veneers provides a more natural-looking bright, white smile. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or all of the issues, including:
- Over time, the thin, hard white substance covering your teeth (the enamel) may become worn, dulled and discolored.
- Aged teeth are more likely to have an uneven appearance, chips, or cracks, and be worn down due to years of wear and tear.
- Certain people may be born with spacing between the teeth that grows wider as they age.
- Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear.
- Some people have a genetic predisposition to the wearing of enamel. For others, the cause of enamel wear may be a heavy smoking habit. Similarly, tea, coffee, medications (such as tetracycline), and soft drinks may have an impact on the discoloration of teeth by slowly eating away at the enamel.
Dental bridges and Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth, the loss of which might adversely affect your mouth. The negative effects of one or more missing teeth could include the shifting of other teeth, a change in the bite, TMJ disorders, a speech impediment, an increased risk for periodontal disease, and a greater chance of tooth decay.
There are several types of fixed (cannot be removed) bridges. These include conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges, and resin bonded bridges.
A conventional and cantilever fixed bridge involves shaping the teeth around the missing tooth. Crowns (caps) are then placed on the shaped teeth and joined to a new tooth (called a pontic) that is used to replace the missing tooth. A resin-bonded bridge, where less preparation of adjacent teeth is required, is often used for the front teeth, providing that the adjoining teeth do not have extensive dental fillings or unhealthy gums.
If you exercise proper dental hygiene, your bridges can last for up to 15 years.

Dental crowns, also known as “caps,” preserve the functionality of damaged teeth. Crowns may be used to protect a cracked tooth, restore functionality of a tooth with excessive decay, or replace a pre-existing crown. The purpose of a dental crown is to encase a needy tooth with a custom-designed material. Dentists today have a variety of conservative treatment options through which to restore teeth. If possible, these options should be explored and discussed before selecting the full coverage crown.
THE CLINICAL PROCEDURE
During the crown procedure, your dentist prepares the tooth and makes a molded impression of the teeth to send to a dental laboratory. A fitted, temporary crown is created during this visit to temporarily protect the tooth while the final restoration is being made in the dental laboratory. Once completed, the crown is cemented at a later visit.
FIXED PARTIAL DENTURES AND CROWNS
Fixed partial dentures ( or dental bridges) are an extension of the dental crown treatment for replacement of missing teeth. Crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth and connected to a missing tooth-like replica.
