Teeth yellowing, or discoloration, is a common dental aesthetic issue. Regular consumption of beverages such as coffee, age, smoking, tobacco, and non-vital tooth and dental restorations are some of the most common reasons.
Depending on convenience and your budget, teeth can be whitened with in-office or take-home whitening kits. If you are not happy with the shade of your teeth, consult with the dentists at Glenridding Dental clinic, Edmonton. They will diagnose the reason for the teeth discoloration and recommend the right whitening solution for you. Certain teeth discolorations cannot be fixed with whitening alone. Our dentist will decide if whitening will be beneficial in your case.

Invisalign is a clear alternative to conventional braces made of clear, smooth, easy to wear plastic. Invisalign acts just like our traditional metal braces, which corrects crooked, misaligned, or protruding teeth.
Traditional braces are uncomfortable and unattractive. With wires and brackets, metal braces are not easy to maintain as food gets trapped in them, making cleaning difficult. Invisalign is removable, making them easy to wear and easy to clean.
With Invisalign, there are few food restrictions. For optimal results, dentists recommend wearing Invisalign at least 20 – 22 hours a day and removing them only while eating and brushing.
Invisalign Process @ Glenridding
Invisalign treatments take five months to a year.
The first step includes a consultation with your dentist, who examines and qualifies you for an Invisalign treatment.
X-rays and bite impressions are taken to create a 3D image. Invisalign is custom-made using 3D imaging technology in our lab. This step determines the length of the treatment.
A series of custom-made aligners are created for your course of treatment. As you progress through the treatments, new aligners are provided every two weeks. The new set advances you to the next stage of treatment.
The results of your treatment will be visibly encouraging. A retainer is recommended to maintain the newly positioned teeth.
Veneers are custom-made ultra-thin shells cemented over the front part of the teeth. They are made of porcelain or composite resin. Veneers enhance your smile and strengthen the teeth. Technically, veneers do not solve decay or cavities. But they mask imperfections and protect teeth from further damage. Veneers are a long-term option for teeth whitening, shape, and size correction.
Veneers correct or mask minor dental issues like enamel loss, discoloration, cracked or chipped teeth, and uneven or misaligned teeth. Like any restoration or cosmetic procedure, dental veneers need proper maintenance. Well-maintained veneers can last 7-15 years.
Dental veneers procedure @ Glenridding Dental Clinic, Edmonton:
This procedure can take up to six weeks. The initial visits involve a dental examination and an x-ray. In the following visits, teeth are prepared for veneers. This procedure involves little or no anesthesia. But a slight trimming and shaping of the teeth are required. Models of the teeth are taken and sent to the lab to create the veneers. Once the veneers arrive, they are examined for fit and color. The veneers are then attached to the teeth using dental resin and hardened with a high-intensity light. Your dentists may advise for follow-up visits to ensure your new veneers are properly fixed.
A beautiful smile includes your teeth and a healthy, proportional gum line. Gummy smiles or too much gum tissue covering the teeth can be unattractive. But with the latest dental technology, this is corrected by gum contouring (gingivoplasty).
Food particles can accumulate under the gum tissue and turn them into a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to plaque build-up, infection, and decay. This can be prevented by gingival contouring.
At Glenridding Dental Clinic, Edmonton, gum contouring is done by numbing your gums with local anesthesia. Our dentists reshape your gums, creating a balance between the gums and the teeth. The results? A perfect smile makeover!
