Creating Memorable Smiles at Love Your Smile - Dr. Stephen Malfair

A smile takes but a moment, but the memory of it lasts forever. You can make your smile memorable and beautiful with smile design from Love Your Smile in Kelowna.

Smile design places an emphasis on aesthetics. While general dentistry addresses the health of your teeth and gums, our smile design complements it. We consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth, and the facial shape and coloring of each patient.

Your teeth take a lot of wear and tear over the years. But smile design from Love Your Smile in Kelowna can restore your smile to its youthful appearance. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to us for restorative dentistry. Call us today to schedule an appointment!

You, Only Better

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!

Restore Or Replace: New Life For Your Damaged Tooth

restoration dentistry Kelowna

There is more than one way to fix a tooth. If you are the lucky owner of a set of perfectly healthy teeth, you may never need any of these procedures. But if you are like most of  us, you will probably need to restore a tooth eventually. In this post from Love Your Smile in Kelowna, we look at six common restoration procedures.

A Porcelain Veneer
These wafer-thin covers can hide a chip or crack or correct the alignment of a tooth that is slightly crooked.

A Filling, Inlay, or Onlay
This procedure has been used to restore teeth for over a century. A traditional filling is shaped and molded after it is applied to the tooth. Inlays are applied to just the center of the biting surface of a tooth (not to a cusp or point) and are generally smaller than onlays. An onlay restores one or more cusps of a tooth.

Dental Bonding
Bonding is used to fix chips, cracks, stains, and make teeth longer. It can also be used to fill cavities. A pliable composite resin is applied to the tooth and molded to the required shape, then hardened with a special light.

A Dental Crown
A crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, strength, and function. Crowns are used for teeth that have had a root canal, teeth with extreme decay, the replacement tooth in a dental bridge, and the visible portion of a dental implant.

Dental Implants
A dental implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. One implant can support one artificial tooth, and several can support a bridge or full dental arch. They look and function like the real thing!

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, services include  restorative dentistry and smile design. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
