How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Treat Tooth Gaps, Uneven Teeth and More

If you have gaps between your teeth, uneven teeth or other factors that make your smile look less than perfect, you can turn to a dentist such as Dr. Ralph Bastian for cosmetic dentistry. You don’t always need braces or extreme surgery to improve your smile.

Veneers, for example, are one of the least expensive ways to correct tooth malformations. Veneers can also be used to fix excess gaps between your teeth. The reason why many patients opt for porcelain veneers is that it gives teeth the most natural appearance. When your veneers have been professionally made and inserted by an experienced dentist, it will look no different from your own teeth.

Want to Improve the Colour of Your Teeth?

Everything, from food, wine and even your lifestyle, can stain your teeth over time. The good news is that there are teeth whitening solutions that can bring back the sparkle and lustre that you want. If you are in the market for a teeth whitening solution, speak to the dentists at Dr. Ralph Bastian. 

We use the Nite White by Zoom whitening tray system. The bleaching material of Nite White consists of 16% carbamide, which changes to hydrogen peroxide (H202) when it comes into contact with saliva. It is the strongest bleaching system on the market and it is incomparable to over-the-counter systems that you will find at the pharmacy.

When you visit us for teeth whitening, we will make impressions of your teeth to fabricate custom trays that fit you perfectly. You will wear the trays at night and see the whiteness of your teeth improve!

Whether you are interested in cosmetic dentistry to treat tooth gaps and uneven teeth or whether you want a powerful and sustainable teeth whitening system, we can help you. Book an appointment for cosmetic dentistry in Peterborough today.

Getting Dental Veneers? Here Is What Happens:

Many people who have a chipped tooth, gaps between their teeth, irregularly shaped teeth or a discoloured tooth opt for veneers. Dentists can bond super thin pieces of porcelain to your teeth to improve your smile. If you have been self-conscious about certain aspects of your smile, then you should book a consultation with Dr. Ralph Bastian in Peterborough, so that he can evaluate your teeth, gums and jaw and recommend an appropriate solution.

Dental veneers, also called porcelain veneers, are made from porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers are the more popular option because they are better at resisting stains and better at mimicking the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.

After your consultation, you will be able to book an appointment to get the veneer process started. During your first appointment, Dr. Ralph will take impressions of your teeth so that the veneers can be manufactured by skilled dental technologists who will carefully colour match the colour of the veneers to your teeth. Before the veneer can be bonded to your teeth, a thin layer of enamel will be removed so that the teeth with the veneers do not look larger or bulkier than your normal teeth.

When your veneers are ready and have been checked by Dr. Ralph Bastian, your teeth will be prepared for the bonding process and the veneers will be attached to the front of your teeth. After the procedure, he will check that your teeth and veneers are in alignment.

Dr. Ralph Bastian’s practice is devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile, using conservative, state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry procedures that will result in beautiful, long-lasting smiles.
