One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. A winning smile can convey confidence and professionalism (to say nothing of your apparently wonderful genes). With a minor process like teeth whitening or a more complex solution such as braces, a general and cosmetic dentist at Gardner Dental Group can help you create a smile you’ll be proud to show off to everyone you meet.
Did you know that contouring, veneers, and crowns are more than just cosmetic alterations? These procedures can actually help improve your bite, correct dental trauma, and give your oral health. Being proactive in making a positive change in your oral health is something we should all smile about!
From improving your bite to reshaping a tooth, we provide a variety of restorative and cosmetic procedures to create a smile that makes a beautiful impression. To learn how cosmetic enhancements can improve your smile and confidence, call Gardner Dental Group to schedule an appointment with a Burlington cosmetic dentist. With services for dental bonding, contouring, crowns, and veneers, we’re giving patients more reasons to smile!
If you have large gaps between your teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, your dentist may recommend dental bonding. Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses a composite resin to reshape the surface of the tooth. Dental bonds are highly realistic and will perfectly match the shade of the neighbouring teeth. You can even whiten your teeth prior to dental bonding for more brilliant results.
Dental bonding is easy; your dentist will sculpt a putty-like material onto your teeth to cover chips, cracks, or missing tooth matter. This material is then hardened using a safe, painless curing light. Once the process is complete, you dental bond should appear to be a natural extension of your smile.
Do you have crowded teeth that overlap each other, or teeth that don’t suit your ideal smile? Do you find it difficult to brush and floss between crowded teeth? Contouring might be the best option. This procedure gently reshapes one or several teeth by removing small amounts of surface enamel. To reduce sensitivities, strengthen the tooth, and make the tooth less susceptible to decay, a high-strength laminate material is then overlaid on the tooth.
During your consultation, your dentist will give you a visual demonstration of how your teeth will appear after the contouring procedure. Once you’ve opted to undergo the procedure, the teeth in question will be precision-sculpted to the ideal shape and size, then smoothed prior to the addition of the protective laminate layer.

Many patients receive ceramic crowns after a broken or cracked tooth, or following a restorative procedure such as a root canal or removal of decayed tooth matter. Ceramic crowns help restore and strengthen teeth, and rejuvenate their appearance. There is an entire field of specialists dedicated to matching the shade of ceramic crowns, so you can expect picture-perfect results that will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth! In some instances, patients opt for a full set of porcelain crowned to cover damaged teeth, or teeth that do not respond to whitening and crowns are the only option for a full set of pearly whites.
Veneers are very similar to ceramic crowns. The major difference between veneers and crowns is that porcelain veneers are typically applied to only the front-facing surface of the teeth. Because of the smile-boosting results porcelain veneers can achieve, veneers have been one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for years.
Porcelain veneers are useful in masking tooth cracks, chips, gaps, and discolouration. The veneers used at Gardner Dental Group are thin slivers of high-strength porcelain that are adhered to the surface after the tooth has been prepared through a gentle grinding of the enamel. Because porcelain veneers are tinted to match the shade of the surrounding teeth, in all likelihood, only your dentist will be able to tell them apart from the real thing!
To see how porcelain veneers can beautify your smile and give your confidence a boost, call Gardner Dental Group to schedule a consultation, today!
