What is Cosmetic Dentistry?


Are you unhappy with your teeth and your smile? Cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. A beautiful bright white smile, not only improves your appearance but self-confidence as well. Fortunately, today’s advanced dental technology can help you acquire the smile of your dreams. Dental procedures like dental crowns or veneers, dental bridges, teeth whitening, or replacing missing teeth with dental implants, can help you overcome any cosmetic problems you may have.  

Dr. Beeram at Beach Grove Dental in Tsawwassen can provide you with a combination of cosmetic dental procedures to help you achieve a stunning smile that will improve your appearance, oral health as well as self-confidence. Initially, he will perform a detailed evaluation of your general oral health and the condition of your teeth. Then he will consult with you to make recommendations that are most suitable for your needs and budget. 

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a great way to improve your teeth if they are so damaged or discoloured that veneers and teeth whitening cannot help. Dental crowns, sometimes called “caps”, are a tooth-like cover placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth structure or dental implant. They are often used to strengthen, restore or improve the appearance of your natural tooth. Crowns are also used to support teeth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. What’s more, dental crown lengthening treatment can be used to correct a “gummy” smile where your teeth are covered with excess gum tissue. Dental crowns can last from 5 to 15 years with proper oral hygiene and preventive dental care. 

Dental Veeners

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that can be fitted to the front of your teeth to improve aesthetics and provide protection. They offer dramatic results and have the potential to change the overall appearance of your smile. 

The high-quality, porcelain veneers provided by Dr. Beeram are an excellent solution for both minor and major cosmetic concerns like enamel discoloration, gaps between the teeth, and damaged or chipped teeth. He can offer you a variety of dental options to fit your desired outcome and budget. When placed side by side, dental veneers have the potential to change the overall appearance of your entire smile.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening treatment can help make your smile brighter. At Beach Grove Dental, Dr. Beeram lifts years of stain from your smile and can complement your other cosmetic treatments. Bleaching works on the tooth from the outside in. The most common technique used is to bleach the surface of the teeth. This results in a whitening of stains or discolourations on the teeth. Cosmetic teeth bleaching works only on natural teeth and the results are not permanent.

Most people are looking to see their smile one or two shades lighter. Dr. Beeram will discuss with you the results you’re looking for. After your teeth cleaning, Dr. Beeram brightens your teeth with ZOOM! He will even give you a take-home kit to top up your whitening later. If you prefer to do it on your own, ask Dr. Beeram about our custom home kit.

Dental Implants

Dental implant treatment is the best replacement option for missing or extremely damaged teeth. They are basically artificial titanium roots that are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw. A crown is then mounted on the implant for a long-lasting and natural-looking smile. Dental implants restore the natural function of your teeth, improve your smile, and support jaw and gum health.  

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Appearance, Health, and Self-Confidence

Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth and as a result your smile as well. However, it can also improve your oral and general health. This can be achieved since when you improve the condition of your teeth, for example with dental crowns or implants, you will be able to chew your food properly. Dental crowns can also help you prevent further deterioration of damaged and avoid the need to replace them. Likewise, dental implants help you maintain healthier gums and prevent jawbone atrophy. 

Additionally, when you have a beautiful bright white smile, you feel more self-confident about yourself and are more comfortable interacting with others. You don’t feel self-conscious about smiling in social situations, for example when you first meet someone. Feeling more comfortable with your appearance can motivate you to be more sociable and have a more enjoyable life. 

As a result, the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, go beyond having beautiful bright white teeth. You can also achieve health and psychosocial benefits that will improve your quality of life. Naturally, you need to practise proper oral hygiene and visit your dentist for your scheduled dental exams.
