How Bright Can You Shine?

Affordable Kelowna Cosmetic Dentistry

Do you want brighter, whiter teeth? Most people notice their teeth dull as the years go by. But foods, drinks, and even mouthwashes can stain teeth at any age. At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we can do something about that with cosmetic dentistry.

Or can you do it on your own? Over the counter products like whitening strips or toothpaste may slightly lighten stains, but for a truly dazzling smile, it takes professional-grade materials.

If you have dental veneers, bonding, or bridges, teeth whitening bleach will not impact the stains and your whitened natural teeth may make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Choose Your Smile we can advise you about new dental work, including veneers or bondings, if these have discolored with age.

Brushing after meals can help prevent staining. But immediately after consuming acidic foods or drinks, just rinse your mouth with water. Brushing before the acids are neutralized or washed away can break down enamel.

In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available and can produce fantastic results over time.

Using Nature As Our Guide

smile design Kelowna

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna we use cosmetic dentistry to turn ordinary teeth (or even teeth with dramatic problems) into unforgettable smiles. If you have been considering a smile makeover, you probably want to know if you will still look like yourself.

The answer is “Yes! Only better!” You see, we use nature as a guide—nature at its best—when improving smiles. It is important to bring multiple components into harmony when designing a smile makeover. Here are a few:

  • Tooth Shape – includes proportion and alignment
  • Tooth Size – this also includes the unique dimensions of the spaces between the teeth
  • Tooth Colour – hue, value, intensity, and colour variations between teeth
  • Tooth Bite – how upper and lower teeth fit together
  • Gumline – shape and color
  • Face Shape and Bone Structure
  • Skin Tone
  • Lips – color, shape, size
  • Age
  • Gender

This list is not comprehensive but gives you an idea of the complexity of smile makeovers. Though advanced cosmetic dentistry is multifaceted, it follows the aesthetic principles expressed in naturally beautiful smiles.

But you don’t have to worry about midlines and microesthetics because we are passionate about the details. We invite you to schedule a smile design consultation at Choose Your Smile in Kelowna to talk about your current smile and the brilliant smile you desire. We also provide general dentistry.
