Cosmetic Dentistry

At Legacy Dental Care, our dentists understand the significance of having both a healthy and beautiful smile. 

The good news is that no matter the condition of your smile, whether your teeth are yellowed or stained, crooked or unevenly spaced, or even if you're missing teeth, there are excellent solutions for restoring your smile and your dental health. Often, repairing a tooth coincides with enhancing it as well, so there's a close relationship between restorative and cosmetic dentistry in South Calgary.

If you have teeth in need of repair, or you're considering making enhancements to your smile, we would encourage you to contact Legacy Dental Care at (587) 625-9222 and schedule an evaluation with Dr. Wiedemann. 

Here are some of the cosmetic dental services you can expect to find at Legacy Dental Care:

Tooth Crowns and Dental Bridges Repair and Replace Teeth

If you're living with teeth that are decayed, broken, or discoloured, a tooth crown may be ideal for your smile. Dental crowns fit over your natural tooth to cover and repair damage or imperfections. They're made from ceramic porcelain, customized to blend seamlessly with your neighbouring teeth and complement your smile. Porcelain crowns in South Calgary are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they are also durable so you can eat and chew comfortably. Tooth crowns can restore one tooth, or they may be part of a larger smile makeover plan.

If you're looking to fill gaps in your smile, a dental bridge is one option. Also made of porcelain, a dental bridge attaches to healthy teeth with crowns and supports one or more prosthetic teeth in between. If you're looking for tooth replacement options, Dr. Wiedemann would be happy to review your choices with you so you can decide on the best solution for your smile.

Porcelain Veneers for the Smile You've Always Wanted

Let's be honest; most of us weren't born with a perfect smile; however, porcelain veneers offer the option of achieving that beautiful dream smile you've always wanted. Veneers are micro-thin slivers of porcelain that Dr. Wiedemann designs to fit over your teeth. Dental veneers can cover and eliminate numerous imperfections to create a symmetrical smile, such as:

  • Tooth shape or size discrepancies
  • Spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Stained or discoloured teeth
  • Slight misalignment problems

Our dentists can also use veneers to repair one or two teeth; however, they are an excellent solution for redesigning your entire smile since they can change your teeth's shade, size, and shape. Be aware, however, that placing dental veneers on your teeth requires the removal of healthy tooth enamel, a process that is irreversible.

Dr. Wiedemann would be happy to explain to you how veneers can enhance your smile during an evaluation.

Invisible Braces for a Straighter Smile

Do crooked teeth keep you from smiling your best smile? Are teeth that overlap hard for you to brush and floss?

Maybe you've thought about straightening your teeth, but you don't want the hassle, embarrassment, or discomfort of wearing metal braces. Invisible braces in South Calgary are an excellent solution for straightening your teeth with comfort and discretion.

Invisalign requires no brackets or wires; instead, the system uses plastic aligners to move your teeth gradually. The aligners are smooth and clear, making them comfortable to wear throughout the day, and they are hardly noticeable when worn. 

Since the aligners are removable, another benefit of choosing Invisalign is that you won't have to change your normal diet or worry about brushing and flossing around brackets and wires, which can be a challenge.

Our dentists are certified Invisalign providers, and they can determine if clear braces will help you achieve your smile goals. Contact our dental office to schedule an Invisalign evaluation. They'll customize a treatment plan for you so you can get started on your new smile in no time.

Tooth-Coloured Fillings and Dental Bonding

Maybe it's tooth decay that is marring your smile. Tooth decay can be uncomfortable if it's causing your tooth to become sensitive and embarrassing if it's causing dark tooth discoloration. Tooth-coloured fillings allow you to restore your tooth to health while keeping the aesthetics you want.

Dr. Wiedemann uses composite resin, which he can easily shape and customize to match your tooth. You no longer have to live with shiny metal fillings that are noticeable when you talk or laugh. Composite is also a durable material bonded onto your tooth, which helps avoid the breakdown that happens with metal fillings.

Composite resin is a versatile material that our dentists also use for a cosmetic procedure called dental bonding. This non-invasive procedure adds composite resin to your tooth to eliminate many of the same imperfections that porcelain veneers do, like chipped or discoloured teeth. Composite is also a less expensive cosmetic alternative to porcelain veneers that we can typically complete in one visit.

Dental Implants for Gaps in Your Smile

One of the best solutions for restoring one or multiple missing teeth is dental implants. There is no other tooth-replacement option that replaces both a lost tooth and root. A dental implant in South Calgary is also a tooth-replacement procedure that has a 95% success rate, making it reliable and offers significant longevity.

An implant placed in your jawbone fuses and integrates with it over time through a process called osseointegration because it's made of titanium, which is biocompatible. It takes the place of your root and provides a stable and firm foundation for your new tooth, which is a porcelain crown designed to blend with your smile.

You will be able to chew, eat, brush, and floss your new tooth just as you did with your natural tooth. When you take good care of your implant with an excellent home care routine and consistent checkups with your dentist every six months, it has the potential to last for a lifetime.

Our dentists can guide you through a dental implant procedure from start to finish, so you can feel confident working with a team you know and trust.
