Are You Smiling?

cosmetic dentist Kelowna

The importance of brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day is something we emphasize to all of our patients. Along with regular checkups and cleanings at Love Your Smile in Kelowna, it’s the best way to maintain your beautiful smile.

A good dental hygiene routine, something you do every single day without fail, is essential to your dental health. It’s related to your overall health, too.

Should you brush your teeth before you floss, or after? We’re asked that from time to time. According to one survey, there’s about a fifty-fifty split of opinion on which is better, with a slight edge going to those who brush first. We think you should do whichever you prefer. Just be sure to do both!

Are there aspects of your smile you would like to improve? Smile design can give your smile an upgrade. Available procedures include:

  • Porcelain veneers. Thin shells of medical-grade ceramic cover any flaws.
  • Bonding. A composite resin is shaped on your teeth to repair damage or improve appearance.
  • Dental implants. Missing one or more teeth? Dental implants look and  function like the real thing.
  • Teeth whitening. For the most dazzling smile possible, nothing beats professional teeth whitening.

Are you smiling? At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we hope so, but if not, smile design can help! People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also keep smiling with our preventative dentistry. Call for an appointment today!

Guide To Teeth Whitening

teeth whitening Kelowna

Teeth whitening at Love Your Smile in Kelowna is one of the quickest and most efficient ways to improve your smile. In  this post, we have an overview of the process.

Everyone, it seems, would like to have the brightest, whitest teeth possible. And why not? A dazzling white smile is a great social asset.

With dozens of over-the-counter teeth whitening products out there, we all have a lot to choose from. But the facts are that nothing you can buy at the store can match the whitening power of professional teeth whitening.

We offer an in-office whitening system and a take-home system. Both use whitening agents to remove the surface stains on teeth.

Another option is porcelain veneers. These are ideal for teeth that are not only discolored, but have minor damage like chips or cracks.

Everyoe would like to have a whiter, brighter smile, and teeth whitening from Love Your Smile in Kelowna delivers! Patients from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 love the results! Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Just Like Natural Teeth (Naturally Perfect Teeth, That Is!)

porcelain veneers Kelowna

Is your smile beginning to look a little dull? Has its luster faded over the years? Maybe you’ve got a chipped tooth – or maybe even a couple. You don’t have to live with these imperfections if you don’t want to. At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, porcelain veneers can mask these and other dental flaws, leaving you with a magnificent smile.

Porcelain veneers are custom-fitted medical-grade porcelain shells that are permanently attached to the surface of the teeth that need correcting. They look just like natural teeth – perfectly natural teeth, that is.

Veneers are one of the most popular options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are so effective they’ve even been called “instant orthodontics.” Technically, of course, they are not orthodotnics – but they’re very strong, and can work wonders on any smile.

One thing to remember: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

To find out more about porcelain veneers, schedule an appointment with Love Your Smile in Kelowna. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 come to us for veneers and other smile design procedures. Call our office today!

Is Perfect Possible?

cosmetic dentistry https://drmalfair.ca/blog/

Would you like to improve the appearance of your smile? Are you skeptical when you hear promises of a “perfect” or “celebrity” smile? Well, at Love Your Smile in Kelowna, so are we.

After all, perfect is a pretty tall order. So let’s do a reality check, and review two of the most popular procedures we use in s ile design, and the results you can expect.

Porcelain Veneers

The application of porcelain veneers can remedy several aesthetic dental problems. They can fix chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size.

Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While veneers don’t repair decay, they can turn unappealing teeth into beautiful, aesthetically pleasing teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive treatment that improves any smile. We have two options: in-office treatment, and a take-home whitening kit. Both leave you with a remarkable new smile.

These and other smile design solutions create great smiles, at Love Your Smile in Kelowna. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to us for a full range of restorative dentistry options. Call for an appointment today!

Don’t Settle For An Unattractive Smile

Don’t Settle For An Unattractive Smile In Kelowna!

No one likes to settle for less than the best, especially with something as important as your smile. At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, smile design really delivers!

We offer a group of procedures that, individually or collectively, create positive changes to your smile. One procedure, such as teeth whitening, will go along way toward upgrading your smile. Two or more gives you a complete smile makeover.

Procedures

Here are some of the more common ways to improve a smile:

  • Teeth whitening. Nothing you buy at the store can can compare to in-office teeth whitening. The bleaching ingredients may be the same, but professional strength whitening surpasses anything over-the-counter. You’ll get a dazzling new smile!
  • Porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Made to match existing teeth, they can hide cracks, gaps, and other imperfections.
  • Crowns and Bridges. Dental crowns are used to repair damaged teeth by covering them like a cap. This restores them to their natural shape. A dental bridge fills the space left by a missing tooth.
  • Dental implants. Implants are state-of-the-art tooth replacement. Strictly speaking, it’s a titanium post inserted into the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. A replacement teeth is attached to the post. They look and function like natural teeth.

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we use smile design to complement the smiles of each patient. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to us for our complete restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

You, Only Better

cost of dental crowns Kelowna

Having a flawless smile is a personal benefit that you can’t put a pricetag on. Is your smile less than flawless? You’re not alone! But with smile design from Love Your Smile in Kelowna, those flaws can be corrected.

If you’re one of those people who tries not to smile because of flawed teeth, smile design can help. An improved smile goes a long way to boosting your self-esteem and self-confidence.

Available procedures include:

  • Porcelain veneers. Thin shells of medical-grade ceramic are attached to the fronts of your teeth. They can cover up chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth. They are also good for covering damaged tooth enamel.
  • Teeth whitening. Years of consuming tea and coffee and other tooth-staining food and drink really take a toll on your smile. You’ll find a lot of over-the-counter whitening products at the store, but none can match the power of professional-strength whitening.
  • Dental implants. One of the true marvels of modern dentistry, dental implants are titanium posts inserted into your jaw. One can support an artificial tooth, and several can support a full dental arch. Because the implant fuses with the bone, your biting and chewing power is restored.

Correcting problem teeth can reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues. Plus you’ll have a smile that you’ll love! Smile design from Love Your Smile in Kelowna can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to us for restorative dentistry.

Can I Objectively Evaluate My Smile?

esthetic smile design Mission

It is no secret that a beautiful, pleasing, healthy smile can be your best physical attribute. After all, people notice your smile first thing. At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we use smile design to help our patients get fabulous smiles.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; if you look at your smile in the mirror and think it’s unattractive, it doesn’t really matter what anybody else thinks. But what if you are not sure?

There are many flaws that can detract from a great smile. Missing teeth is a biggie. People who are missing teeth in the back of the mouth may mistakenly believe that the gap doesn’t show. They are usually wrong. When smiling, talking, laughing, or eating, a missing tooth definitely shows – even if the missing tooth is the very last molar.

Yellow or gray teeth diminish the appeal of a smile – even one that is perfectly healthy and aligned – and crooked teeth are often considered unattractive.

Regardless of the issue, there is probably a smile design procedure that can improve it. At Love Your Smile in Kelowna people from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 have trusted us to improve their smiles. We also offer restorative dentistry. Call for an appointment with us today!
