Would You Like Whiter Teeth?

When people look at your smile, they immediately notice the shade of your teeth and whether they’re bright and clean or yellow and dull. Even if you keep your teeth cleaned, yellow or stained teeth are often associated with ill-health or poor oral hygiene, which can be an unfair judgment. Nothing can ruin your self-assuredness than the knowledge that your teeth look dingy or “dirty.”

The good news is that you can use professional teeth whitening to dramatically improve the shade of your teeth and erase stains that have built up over the years. Teeth whitening is a popular, reliable, and cost-effective cosmetic dental treatment that immediately improves your smile in just one dental visit to Gasoline Alley Dental.

If you decide that teeth whitening could improve your life, there are two methods to do this. You can come to your Red Deer County dental office and get an in-office treatment in under 90 minutes. If you prefer to do your professional teeth whitening at home, we can fabricate take-home whitening trays that are customized to fit snugly over your teeth so that the professional bleaching gel will not touch your gums.

We recommend in-office whitening if you’re looking for quick results, like right before a vacation, wedding, reunion, or other special events. At-home whitening will eventually provide the same results, but the process is slower, typically within two weeks.

Because we customize your teeth whitening trays for your mouth, and the bleaching gel is high-grade quality, it is a better value than anything you will ever find in the store.

Are Your Teeth Crooked or Oddly Shaped?

Are your teeth misshapen or short and stubby? Maybe they are mildly misaligned and need a little shift in the right direction. Your Red Deer County cosmetic dentist, Dr. Darren Whitehead, can help! We can use Invisalign clear aligners to straighten your teeth without it being noticeable.

If you don’t like your too short or oddly shaped teeth, we have more than one dental treatment that can change the look of your teeth. Porcelain veneers and dental crowns are two options that correct the size, shape, and even color of your smile.

Another option to changing your smile is called dental bonding, which uses tooth-colored composite resin to fill in gaps, elongate teeth, and whitens stubborn stains. Dental bonding is a standard, non-invasive, and reliable cosmetic dental procedure that we can complete in one dental visit.

It can be embarrassing to have overcrowded or crooked teeth. They not only affect your appearance, but they're also hard for you to keep clean with brushing and flossing; even eating can be challenging if the bite is misaligned. When you can’t keep your teeth and gums clean, you can quickly develop tooth decay, gum disease, or infection. Having straight teeth is both beneficial to your dental health and a boost to your appearance and beauty.

Many adults love Invisalign because of its clear and invisible nature, so you can have your orthodontic treatment without it affecting your professional or social life. Additionally, since it uses smooth, plastic material instead of wires and brackets, it’s considered more comfortable—you never have to worry about it cutting your cheeks or gums. Invisalign stands apart from traditional metal braces because they are removable, so you can take them out before meals, for brushing and flossing, or for special events.

Do You Have One or More Missing Teeth?

Losing a tooth affects the way you look, what you can eat, how you talk, and your self-confidence. Chewing food is more difficult without the function of all your teeth, and you may be worried that people are staring at the gap in your smile, which can make you hide your smile or become overwhelmed with how it impacts your self-esteem.

At Gasoline Alley Dental, Dr. Whitehead is highly-experienced in permanent tooth restoration options for patients with one or multiple missing teeth. Your Red Deer County dental staff will walk you through each step of the process with compassion and understanding, and together we will improve your smile and restore your self-worth.

Many people consider dental implants to be the gold standard of tooth replacement options because they replace your tooth root. This is incredibly important for your oral health because your tooth root stimulates bone growth and keeps it from receding away. Without your tooth root, the jaw bone will deteriorate, which compromises the foundation for all your teeth and can even change your facial contours and structure. By replacing your tooth, you prevent neighboring teeth from shifting over the gap and bite misalignment. 

At Gasoline Alley Dental, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Whitehead, has years of experience placing dental implants. The procedure is stress-free, and patients will not feel any pain. We invite you to use your dental implant evaluation to ask questions or voice concerns.

Are You Thinking About Enhancing Your Smile?

Have you ever met someone with such a dazzling smile you can’t help but admire it and wish yours looked the same? With porcelain veneers, we can improve your smile and leave you with perfectly symmetrical, white teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent layers of porcelain that we bond to the front of your tooth to fix and cover imperfections like:

  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Yellow or discolored teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth

Call your cosmetic dentist in Red Deer County today to learn more about porcelain veneers and how they can improve your appearance.
