At Alba Dental Centre, we’re passionate about creating beautiful smiles for London, White Oaks, Byron and Masonville residents. If there’s something about your smile that you’d like to improve, such as a cracked tooth, staining or discolouration, or gaps between your teeth, we have a cosmetic dentistry solution for you.
Why restore or enhance your smile?
The subconscious yet contagious impact of a beautiful smile is radiant health, happiness, warmth and invitation. First impressions are not only important; they often last the longest. There is no doubt that among people suffering from poor self-image, dental concerns rank among the highest. It really doesn’t matter if it is a serious defect or a slight imperfection; if a person is self-conscious about their smile, it can exact an emotional toll and adversely affect social and professional interactions with others.
Reasons for cosmetic & restorative dentistry:
- Enhance your smile to make you look younger & more attractive.
- Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth
- Improve or correct an improper bite
- Prevent the loss of a tooth
- Relieve dental pain
- Repair damaged and decayed teeth
- Replace missing teeth
- Replace old, unattractive dental treatments
- Restore normal eating and chewing ability
What cosmetic & restorative dentistry services do we offer at alba dental centre in London, Ontario?
is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure patients ask for when considering a smile makeover in London. Our professional in-office and take-home teeth whitening procedures fit almost any budget and the results are quick. Teeth whitening brightens your teeth by removing stains caused by foods and beverages like berries, coffee, wine, tea, colas etc. Almost everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening or teeth bleaching. However, some dark teeth are much more resistant to the dental whitening procedures and Dr. Sharif Alsabbagh or Dr. Nuha Baalbaki (London Dentists) will let you know if you should consider other cosmetic options like porcelain veneers.
While many patients seek veneers for the sole purpose of making teeth look more aesthetically pleasing, veneers can actually replace dental enamel that has been broken or chipped. London cosmetic dentists, Dr. Sharif Alsabbagh or Dr. Nuha Baalbaki are particularly skilled at improving patients’ smiles with these natural-looking dental restorations in as little as two dental visits. Veneers are a great option to mask crooked teeth without the need for braces.
Prepless veneers, of which Lumineers are the top brand name, can look fantastic with nice finish lines. They require an absolute master ceramist and highly skilled and trained dentist like Dr. Sharif Alsabbagh in order to feel and look great.
For patients with severely decayed teeth, a dental crown replaces the top portion of dental enamel – what’s visible above the gum line. Crowns make weak, damaged teeth stronger by re-enforcing them with durable porcelain, ceramic, or even a metal base that is coated in natural-looking porcelain. Crowns also prevent the spread of further tooth decay through the removal and replacement of decayed enamel. Existing, healthy tooth structure – such as roots – is saved, and your tooth looks healthy once again. Dr. Sharif Alsabbagh or Dr. Nuha Baalbaki will often recommend a crown to strengthen a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment.
Permanent dental bridges replace teeth that have been extracted or knocked-out. Bridges are typically used to close the gap caused by one missing tooth, but can be made to replace larger groups of missing teeth. Bridges use dental crowns and other prosthetics to restore the look and function of your smile so that you can bite and chew with improved confidence.
Unlike old-fashioned metal fillings, composite white fillings do not expose patients to mercury and are a better choice for cosmetic and restorative reasons. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth coloured fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, colour and shape of teeth. This quality is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth; repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.
Dental bonding is an excellent, highly aesthetic, and long lasting cosmetic option. Dr. Sharif Alsabbagh or Dr. Nuha Baalbaki use white tooth-coloured composite for repairing, restoring or enhancing a tooth. Placing composite bonding takes precision and detail or the tooth bonding will fail: the filling will leak, fall out, crack, break, or cause tooth sensitivity after the filling is placed.
Dr. Sharif Alsabbagh and Dr. Nuha Baalbaki have completed advanced training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. With their education and experience, our London dental office is able to provide patients with restorative and cosmetic options that support the best oral health and aesthetic outcomes.
Cosmetic gum surgery | Gum reshaping
Your teeth may be the “main attraction” of your smile—but your gums are its supporting cast. When your gums look healthy and are appropriately sized in relation to the teeth, they help make your smile stand out. But if they are not, your teeth may appear too small or too large—giving you a “gummy smile,” or making you look “long in the tooth.”
Through cosmetic gum surgery, Dr. Sharif Alsabbagh or Dr. Nuha Baalbaki (London Dentists) can help correct these and other gum problems. Besides making your smile more attractive, it can also restore the health and function of your gums when they have suffered damage from dental disease.
