The Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions about Cosmetic Dentistry

Here are the most common questions that the Cosmetic Dentistry team at Plateau Village Dental Centre in Coquitlam are often asked. We hope you’ll find the answers you’re looking for and contact us if you have any more questions or concerns about Cosmetic Dentistry or if you would like to book an appointment.

1. What exactly is Cosmetic Dentistry? 

Cosmetic Dentists are concerned with the appearance of your smile and your self-confidence. Any procedure that enhances your smile is part of Cosmetic Dentistry, but there are many health benefits to Cosmetic Dentistry. Learn more about our Cosmetic Dentistry solutions by clicking here.

2. What kind of dental problems can Cosmetic Dentistry fix? 

Cosmetic Dentistry can replace missing teeth, repair chipped or cracked teeth, remove stains for a brighter smile, fix gummy smiles (that show too much of the gum-line) and replace blackened crowns and mercury fillings with tooth-coloured alternatives.

3. Are Cosmetic Dentistry procedures just for looks?

No. Teeth that are chipped or broken are a serious medical concern – the pulp of the tooth may become infected, which can lead to terrible pain from exposed nerves. Chipped or broken teeth can also affect your speech and chewing ability. Teeth that are crooked are harder to clean and more prone to infection, gum disease and cavities. In sum, Cosmetic Dentistry procedures don’t just benefit you psychologically and aesthetically.

4. Are Cosmetic Dentistry procedures time-consuming? 

Most Cosmetic Dentistry procedures require only one or two sessions. It depends on the number of procedures and the patient’s oral health and condition, but generally it will only be a short while until you’ll have a fantastic new smile to show off. Contact us today for a consultation and time estimate of the Cosmetic Dentistry solution you are interested in.

5. What impact will Cosmetic Dentistry procedures have on my life?

You may experience an increase in smiling, flirting and feel-good emotions. Cosmetic Dentistry patients at Plateau Village Dental Centre in Coquitlam have reported more social and professional gains due in part to their new smile and new outlook on life.
