The Guide To Veneers

porcelain veneers cost Kelowna

It’s easy to see why so many of our patients at Choose Your Smile in Kelowna love porcelain veneers. Veneers correct a multitude of flaws and deliver brilliant results.

If you would like to improve your smile with porcelain veneers, you want a trusted dentist with extensive experience performing this treatment. The porcelain veneer procedure is more complicated than you may realize.

A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin shell (about .5mm or 1/64 inch) that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. Each one is custom made for each tooth. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains, and can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.

While preparing a tooth for a veneer is less invasive than other procedures, it is not reversible. A thin layer of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.

Veneers are usually placed on the most visible teeth –  front and center, so to speak. They’ll be on display every time you open your mouth. This is definitely a procedure you want to get right the first time!

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we offer porcelain veneers are part of our smile design. We also offer many other services, including restorative dentistry. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

The Tea And Teeth Question

Kelowna teeth bleaching best price

Here’s a riddle from Choose Your Smile in Kelowna: What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.

Lame jokes aside, a common concern for patients is stained teeth. In this blog post, we’ll talk about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages, including tea.

Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Daily oral hygiene is vital.

Between cleanings, rinse with water after drinking tea. Be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, you may want to consider profeswsional teeth whitening. At Choose Your Smile, we offer in-office Zoom! Whitening, a light-activated procedure that can whiten your smile in just one office visit. We also have highly effective DayWhite take-home trays.

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna we can transform yellow or dull teeth. We believe in preventative dentistry to maintain your dental health. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

The Ultimate Anti-Aging Treatment

Kelowna Pediatric DentistryWishing for a whiter smile but not sure how to get it? At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we whiten teeth professionally every day.

Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains

Almost every toothpaste claims to brighten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray. Tooth enamel, while one of the hardest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth result in staining and discoloration. You probably have already spotted that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.

Powerful Peroxide

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile whitening ingredients. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to remove the build-up and help restore the former color.

We have two whitening options: Zoom! in-office whitening, which can transform your teeth in just one visit, and Daywhite take-home trays for the do-it-yourselfer. Both deliver spectacular results.

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we offer teeth whitening and smile design, and a host of other services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.

Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

V1W 3C6 cosmetic smile makeover

This message from Choose Your Smile in Kelowna is about smile makeovers and smile design.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the problem and result in a dazzling smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile makeover combines several carefully-chosen  procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile transformation. The sum is greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

When we design a custom smile makeover, we study several elements in addition to the teeth. The gumline, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age are all part of the equation.

To find  out more about smile design from Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, please schedule an appointment. We also offer restorative dentistry, and many other services. Call our office today!
