Nitus Dentist
Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic Dentistry is about far more than just improving the appearance of your teeth, it is about improving your confidence and self-esteem by giving you the smile you have always dreamed of. 

At our practice, we provide a range of cosmetic treatments and procedures to redesign your smile.

Procedures

Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that lightens your teeth naturally.  There is no damage to your teeth. The whitening agent lifts stains from the inside of the tooth resulting in whiter brighter teeth. After the whitening is finished it takes about 24 to 48 hours for the enamel to harden to its original strength. During this period special care needs to be taken to not expose the teeth to new stains.

Zoom is a great 1 visit whitening system that takes approximately 60-90 minutes.

Home whitening systems are also available

Porcelain 

Porcelain Veneers are used to make minor aesthetic improvements to the shape & colour of your teeth. Custom made thin porcelain veneers are bonded to your existing tooth. Porcelain veneers may be used to close small spaces between teeth and make teeth appear straight and provide consistent colour and shape.

Porcelain Inlays & overlays are a stronger alternative to conventional composite fillings where too much tooth structure has been lost. Your tooth restoration is milled in a shape closely resembling your natural tooth, fitted and bonded in one visit.

Porcelain Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are fitted over your prepared tooth to restore the tooth’s shape, size and function.

Porcelain bridge placement is an alternative replacement option for a missing tooth when a dental implant is not desired.  Your teeth on either side are prepared for crown placement and a connected unit is milled to replace the missing teeth.

When your teeth have been severely worn, decayed or damaged you might need a full mouth reconstruction. This includes functional, neuromuscular and cosmetic dental procedures to restore both function and aesthetics.

Cerec CAD/CAM

Most of the porcelain work at our practice is facilitated with CEREC CAD/CAM technology.  This is a unique dental restoration product that allows direct porcelain restoration and placement using a variety of computer-assisted technologies to do computer design and manufacture all porcelain veneers, inlays, onlays, crowns & bridges.

With the use of CEREC CAD/CAM technology, it is possible to provide patients with a new smile in only one appointment of approximately 75 minutes! Advantages of this procedure include the need for only 1 visit, no need for a temporary crown to be placed and no extra injections.

In cases where the use of Cerec is not indicated conventional impressions are taken & lab work is sent to a trusted lab to manufacture and fitted 7 days later.

Implants

Implants are the most sophisticated method for the replacement of missing teeth. This is a permanent and fixed solution done with or without other dental specialities as your specific case needs.

Contouring

Tooth contouring  & bonding makes subtle changes to the shape and general appearance of the teeth.  This non-invasive procedure is the perfect solution to small dental imperfections.  This painless procedure involves the removal of tooth enamel or the addition of small composite materials in order to slightly alter the shape, length or surface of the teeth.

Orthodontics

Conventional Orthodontic treatment is referred to an orthodontist, however, we do clear braces at our practice. 

Clear braces are invisible, custom, removable aligners that move your teeth a little bit at a time until they are eventually straight. They are worn all the time, except while eating and brushing teeth. 

Mouth Guards & Bite Plates

We supply customized preventative protection to be worn for high-risk activities to protect against accidental mouth trauma.

A Biteplate treats the symptoms of excessive grinding due to stress, occlusal interferences and TMJ dysfunction. They are usually worn at night and help reduce the wear and tear on your teeth.
