Adequate Results vs. Incredible Results

Kelowna Teeth Bleaching

At Choose 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 Choose 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 Choose 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 Choose 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 Choose 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!

If Only I Had Taken Care Of My Teeth…

caring dentist Kelowna

Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day is something we stress to all of our patients, at Choose Your Smile in Kelowna. Coupled with twice-a-year checkups and cleanings, it’s the best way to maintain healthy teeth and gums, and 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. But we understand that some people, for whatever reason, let it slip. Some have even been known to skip brushing and flossing so often, you could say they never do it at all.

It’s Worth It!

In cases like that, some people may think their teeth are too far gone – that no amount of treatment can restore their dental health. If that sounds like you or someone you love, we’re here to tell you it isn’t so. There is always a way to make your teeth look and feel better.

That doesn’t mean it will be easy, but it will be worth it. In cases of neglected teeth, initial treatment begins with an inspection in our office. At that time we will identify the need for any fillings or extractions.

We’ll also look for signs of gum disease, which is common in cases of neglected teeth. If we find it we’ll begin a sequence of cleanings and treatments to revive your gum health.

There Is Always Hope

Once we have your mouth back in a healthy condition, we start looking at what needs to be done to fix any damage. It may not be a walk in the park, but it won’t be as bad as you might imagine. And it will definitely be worth it, in the long run.

Your biggest takeaway from this post should be this: even if you haven’t taken care of your teeth, there is always hope.

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we want the best possible dental health for all of our patients. Our services include restorative dentistry and smile design. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Let’s Work Together To Keep Your Smile Healthy And Beautiful

low cost tooth bleaching Kelowna

Here at Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we approach all your oral health needs from two separate angles—what we can do in our office and what you can do at home.

For example, tooth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office there are safe and effective methods for whitening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening techniques are also safe and effective and sometimes more affordable.

Additionally, we guide you regarding food and drink choices that can influence your whitened smile. Be aware of staining substances such as coffee, tea, tobacco and soda. We understand that eliminating these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.

Awareness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary beverage can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, your dental health is always our top concern. We emphasize preventative dentistry and offer smile design. Call for an appointment today!

Patient-Centered Dental Care

Kelowna affordable family dentist

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we are committed to providing patient-focused dental care of the highest standard.

Our caring professionals can assist you. You could be our next success story!

What is patient-focused care?

A check-up with no cavities? A remarkable smile? A crown that looks as natural as the surrounding teeth?

It could mean all those things and many more.

For a child, dental success could be defined as a childhood free of cavities. Learning daily oral hygiene. Plus gaining an understanding of why it’s important.

What about a teenager who is hesitant to smile because of crooked teeth? The solution is a successful course of orthodontic treatment. The result is a beautiful smile that boosts confidence.

What about the man who suffered dental trauma in an accident? Patient-focused care could be dental implants that restore oral health and tooth function.

For a woman with tetracycline stains but otherwise healthy teeth, patient-centered care may be as easy as fast in-office same-day tooth whitening.

Consider someone with several missing teeth who can only eat soft foods. Patient-focused care could mean natural-looking implant-anchored dentures that allow the patient to eat steak for the first time in years.

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna we treat a wide variety of dental issues. We offer preventative and restorative dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
