Cosmetic dental procedures can improve both the appearance and functionality of your teeth. If you aren’t happy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry may be right for you.
Cosmetic dentistry refers to the art and science of improving your smile’s appearance. It also includes different procedures to restore your teeth’s functionality.
Some cosmetic dental procedures, such as moving your teeth from their original positions, getting veneers, or tooth whitening, may not need surgery to improve the look of your teeth and smile. However, cosmetic dental surgery is dental work that involves local anesthesia. District Dental can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted with cosmetic procedures including:
- Digital smile design (SmileFy)
- Clear aligners (ClearCorrect)
- Tooth whitening
- Porcelain and composite veneers
- Metal free and bonded fillings

A smile makes a good first impression
If you’re not completely happy with your smile, but aren’t a fan of metal braces, ClearCorrect aligners might be right for you. Straighter teeth don’t just look better; they work better too. Poorly aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, can wear out faster, and are more prone to cavities. Once you’ve got a smile you love, you can’t help but show it off.
How does ClearCorrect work?
Let’s make your smile the best it can be. Based on Dr. Stas’ evaluation, ClearCorrect uses advanced technology to create custom clear aligners that apply targeted pressure to your teeth. This pressure moves your teeth into alignment and give you a reason to smile.
The perfect white smile
We know how important a gleaming white smile is. Even though you’ve cared for your teeth, you still have unsightly staining from drinks or foods. Time and cost can be a factor in dental treatment. That’s why we’ve perfected our take home whitening kit!
Custom made whitening trays
Our custom made whitening trays fit your teeth and allow a precise amount of whitening gel to stay on your teeth. Our gel comprises safe hydrogen peroxide. This acts as an oxygenating agent that penetrates deep down into the tooth and washes out lodged debris and stains.
What are the side effects?
Common side effects of tooth whitening include tooth sensitivity. We recommend staging your whitening process to avoid any discomfort.
Porcelain and Composite Veneers
What is a tooth veneer?
We associate veneers with a beautiful smile. A tooth veneer is a less than 1mm thick shell of porcelain that is chemically bonded it to a tooth. This makes the veneer and tooth as close to one entity as possible. Even though we remove some tooth structure, getting veneers is often a minimally invasive procedure. Yet has a profound effect on the appearance of a tooth and your smile.
Why get tooth veneers?
Many tooth conditions can diminish the esthetic appearance of your teeth. These include staining, worn teeth, chipped teeth, hypo-calcified or “weak” enamel, spacing between teeth, crowding, malformed or peg-like teeth, inward angling of teeth. Each person is different and presents with a unique set of conditions. Before we recommend veneers, we consider and explain all pros and cons. We then collaborate with you to achieve your desired result.
Metal Free and Bonded Fillings
What are bonded fillings?
Bonded fillings are a tooth-coloured mix of plastic and ceramic. Often called composite, plastic, or white fillings, a bonded filling is a procedure in which your dentist cleans all decay from the tooth and applies a bonding agent inside the cavity. Dentists then apply a tooth-coloured resin material, in thin layers, into the cavity and harden it with a LED blue light. Once the last layer of the filling is hard, your dentist shapes the filling, restoring or improving a person’s smile. Bonded fillings are almost undetectable.
What is the difference between bonded and metal fillings?
In contrast to metal, bonded fillings usually require less tooth removal for small/medium-sized cavities. This factor makes the teeth significantly stronger in the long run, and lowers the risk of fractures. Modern composite materials, if used appropriately, can restore teeth to look completely natural.
