Is Perfect Possible?

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!

Adequate Results vs. Incredible Results

Kelowna Teeth Bleaching

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, smile design refers to a group of procedures we use to improve the appearance of your smile.

Take teeth whitening: you can buy whitening strips or toothpaste at the store, and they will do an adequate job of brightening your smile. But who wants to settle for adequate? For truly incredible results, only professional teeth whitening can deliver.

Teeth whitening is just one of the smile design options we offer. Any one of them will improve your smile. Put two or more of them together and you’ll have a remarkable transformation, what we call a smile makeover.

Other possibilities include:

  • Dental implants. While these might also be considered restorative dentistry, they have a cosmetic value too. Dental implants are titanium posts inserted in your jaw, where they fuse with the bone. One can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a full dental arch.
  • Clear braces. More and more adults are straightening their teeth, often with clear braces. They’re dental trays made from a clear synthetic material. A series of trays, with a new one every few weeks, gradually bring your teeth into pleasing, proper alignment.

We all place value on the appearance of our smiles, and smile design from Love Your Smile in Kelowna delivers incredible results. People from throughout Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 have come to us for smile design, and other services like preventative dentistry! Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Tooth Whitening For A Whiter Smile

Kelowna Tooth Whitening For Whiter SmilesTeeth whitening is one of the easiest and most rewarding procedures for improving the appearance of yellow teeth. At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we improve smiles every day!

You may be tempted to try whitening your teeth on your own. There’s plenty to choose from: every day seems to bring some new whitening product or gadget to the store. There are toothpastes and whitening strips and mouth rinses, and gels that you wear overnight. What they have in common is a bleaching agent that works on the surface stains of your teeth. And to be fair, some of them do a pretty good job.

But who wants to settle for just pretty good?

We have a couple of options for you in our office. Zoom! whitening is a light-activated, in-office treatment that does an excellent job at removing stains in just one appointment. For those who like the hands-on appoach, DayWhite take-home trays are a good option. They both work great to change the color of yellowed teeth.

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we can transform yellow teeth into beautiful pearly whites. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 come to our office for expert smile design. Schedule an appointent with us today!
