Cosmetic Dentistry & Dentists in Ottawa
The goal of dental care is threefold:
1. Help maintain or improve overall oral health, and optimize the functionality of teeth
2. Help maintain or improve the aesthetic appearance of the teeth, gums and smile
3. Help maintain or improve the overall health and well being of the patient through excellent oral health
Cosmetic dentistry mostly addresses the issue of aesthetic improvement. Certain dental procedures such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers or composite bonding tend to emphasize cosmetic results, while improving oral health and functionality at the same time, almost as a side benefit.
The following section contains brief descriptions of several popular cosmetic treatments. We have included this discussion because we believe that they have earned their rightful place in quality dental care.
