Bedford Cosmetic Dentist

Veneers, crowns, teeth whitening — cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile of your dreams

If you’re unhappy with any part of of your smile, cosmetic dentistry has the power to fix it. These procedures can change the look and function of your entire smile, or subtly fix a minor flaw.

Hammond Dental Centre, a Bedford cosmetic dentist, offers a wide range of treatments, including using veneers to correct a tooth’s colour, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.

Here are a few of our cosmetic dentistry procedures:

Veneers

A veneer is a thin laminate that is bonded directly to the natural teeth. They are used to correct a tooth's colour, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth.

Crowns

A crown completely covers (caps) a tooth, protecting it and keeping it strong. Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, pure white porcelain (to resemble a natural tooth), or zirconia. We choose the material we feel will work best in your mouth.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening allows us to remove or reduce stains, lightening teeth for a more attractive appearance.

Contouring

This procedure is used to reshape teeth by correcting crooked, chipped or overlapping teeth. Teeth are carefully reduced and built up with laminate material until they are the ideal shape and size.

Bonding

Bonding is a conservation method for retaining teeth. It can be very beautiful and is good for younger people or those who are not ready for porcelain veneers.

FAQs

Q: Is a veneer the same thing as a crown?

A: No — they are two separate dental services.

A veneer is a thin laminate that is bonded directly to your teeth, and is used to correct a tooth's colour, close a space, or repair a cracked tooth. These can be very natural and are beautiful, longer-term restorations.

A crown is an artificial tooth that completely encircles (caps) your natural tooth. Crowns are often placed if your tooth has a significant amount of decay, or has been weakened by large fillings. If you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, a crown is attached to the implant to mimic a natural tooth.

Q: Are my teeth stained because I drink red wine?

A: Red wine, coffee and tea are notorious for staining your teeth. Diet soda is also a problem, because its acidity breaks down your tooth's enamel — leaving it prone to stains. You don't need to cut out these beverages entirely in order to protect your teeth — just be mindful of what they might do to your smile, and try to limit your intake.

Q: I always see people get these brand-new smiles on TV makeover shows, and it takes no time at all — what procedure are they getting?

A: Veneers are often used on makeover shows, because they can improve the aesthetics of a person's smile very quickly, but the right course of action depends on many factors. Talk to us today about your options.

Q: Does my dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry procedures?

A: It depends on your coverage. We would be happy to help you understand your available coverage, so please ask us at your next appointment.
