Cosmetic Dentistry in Edmonton
Have you ever considered improving the appearance of your smile?
Even a smile that is healthy can have flaws that diminish its beauty. Chips, cracks, misalignments, and discolourations can all reduce your self-confidence and your self-image.
Scheduling a cosmetic consultation at Orchards Dental in Edmonton will allow you and our staff to review your concerns and discuss your goals. We can then recommend the cosmetic procedures that will be the most appropriate for you. We offer numerous options for improving your smile at Orchards Dental, and we will work with you to choose the options that will best help you achieve your goal!
Some of the cosmetic procedures Dr. Dennis George Anithottam might recommend include:
Veneers are a versatile treatment option that can conceal a number of common cosmetic flaws. Whether you want to camouflage a single discoloured tooth or you’d like to completely change the appearance of your smile, veneers can be a great choice.
We can use veneers to:
- Repair chips and cosmetic cracks
- Help teeth look properly aligned
- Improve the appearance of discolourations
- Elongate teeth that are short or worn down
- Blend in teeth that are unusually shaped
- Minimize the appearance of gaps between your teeth
The procedure for porcelain veneers is conducted by applying thin veneers above the surface of the damaged tooth. The benefit of veneers over other cosmetic dentistry procedures is that they cover the entire front surface of the damaged tooth. Veneers can conceal multiple imperfections of the tooth all at once. Veneers are a great solution if you want a better smile in a shorter time period.
Veneers can help most patients looking to improve their smile however there are some cases where Veneers may not be an option for you. These include:
- Extensive tooth decay
- Severely damaged teeth
- TMJ disorder
- Gum disease
- Bruxism (risk may be decreased with a protective nightguard)
Crowns will help improve the look of your smile and can also help reduce pain and prevent further damage in any injured teeth you have. Dental crowns may be right for you if you deal with the following
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Tooth decay
- Tooth has a root canal
- Large and fractured fillings
- Cosmetic enhancement
Crowns are an effective option if the flaw you are troubled by is also affecting the function of your tooth or the alignment of your bite. Since a crown fits over your entire tooth, it can be used to hide serious discolourations and damage.
Your crown will be customised to fit well with your bite and the colour of the crown will be matched with nearby teeth to blend in nicely with your existing dentistry.
There are many different options available for dental crowns. Porcelain crowns are the most common choice as they match your teeth. Dental crowns are great for their durability and because they can last many years. Over time you may need to eventually replace your dental crowns. Dr. Dennis and Dr. Merry Anithottam will take impressions of your current teeth to create a mold. The mold will be a temporary crown until your new crown has been manufactured by a local dental laboratory. We follow the Alberta Fee Guide for crowns!
Teeth whitening is a quick and affordable way to whiten your smile! You might be surprised at the difference a professional whitening treatment can make in the appearance of your smile!

There are many different factors than can leave a stain on your teeth from what you drink and what you eat. This can leave you with a yellow smile. Dr. Dennis and Dr. Merry Anithottam will be able to restore your teeth to the desired look you want to achieve. There are many causes for why your teeth stain, and they can include

Misaligned teeth aren’t just an esthetic issue; they can also impact your oral health. When teeth are twisted, overlapping, or crowded, they can be more difficult to clean. This can lead to an increased risk for cavities and gum disease.
If you have a mild to moderate misalignment, Invisalign might be a good choice for you. The translucent aligners fit over your teeth and are difficult to see, even from up close. Since you remove the aligners when you eat and also when you brush and floss your teeth, you don’t have to worry about two of the primary concerns of people who are considering orthodontic treatment.
