Cosmetic Dentistry in Ottawa
Healthy and nice-looking teeth are not only important for our physical health, they are also important for our mental and emotional wellbeing. For example, discoloured, broken or misaligned teeth may make us feel uncomfortable and self-conscious with regards to laughing or smiling openly. In dentistry, form follows function and healthy functional teeth are what create a beautiful smile.
Thankfully, there are many ways to improve your smile. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, our experienced team of cosmetic dentist in Nepean, Ottawa can help. We offer a variety of services to correct minor imperfections, whiten your teeth, and give you the smile you want.
Listed below are some of the treatment options in cosmetic dentistry in Ottawa which we routinely offer at College Square Dental. If you don’t find the solution or answer you are looking for here, or if you would like to inquire about other options, please contact us directly.
Veneers are thin porcelain coverings applied to the visible front portion of your teeth. They not only look good, but also act as a protective layer for your natural teeth. Because of their lasting nature, veneers are a relatively simple, comfortable, and long-lasting solution for people with chipped, broken, misshapen, or discolored teeth.
Applying veneers requires a specific skill set and considerable precision on the part of the dentist. Although the procedure usually requires local anaesthetic because there is some gingival manipulation involved, the overall treatment is generally not very invasive. The results are quite impressive and long-lasting.
On your first visit, your cosmetic dentist in Ottawa will remove a very thin layer of enamel from the front of the teeth where your veneers will be applied. This part will later be replaced by the veneers.
After preparing the tooth, a digital impression of your teeth will be taken. This ensures that your veneers will fit perfectly and match the shape of your natural teeth. This impression is then sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers are custom-made from the scanned impression. We work closely with the very best dental laboratories to ensure that the colour of the porcelain veneers matches the natural colour of your surrounding teeth to make the veneers look natural.
On your second visit the dentist will etch the surface of your teeth and cement the new veneers, lending you the perfect smile.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- natural looking
- very durable:
- easy care
Because veneers directly replace a part of the enamel on the front of your teeth, they fit and feel natural. As mentioned before, we also work closely with the best dental laboratories to ensure that the colour of the porcelain veneers you receive match the natural colour of your surrounding teeth and make your veneers look natural. They are “invisible”.
Veneers are also very durable and easy to care for. They require no more attention than your natural teeth. Simply brush and floss like the rest of your teeth. With the proper care veneers do not change colour or stain and last for a very long time.
In short: veneers are a great way to give you your perfect smile! To find out whether veneers are a good cosmetic option for you, contact your Ottawa Cosmetic Dentist at College Square Dental today.
Most of us enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, a glass of fruit juice or red wine every now and then. All of the foods and beverages we consume have some amount of colour in them. These colours in foods and drinks can stain our teeth. Unfortunately, regular brushing and over-the-counter teeth whitening products are often not effective enough to remove this discolouration.
Luckily, there is an effective and lasting way to brighten your teeth. Professional teeth whitening is a good way to get rid of the most persistent stains on your teeth. It can brighten your teeth by a full 3-8 shades.
For your convenience, we offer two whitening options: in-office treatment and a take-home kit. The in-office treatment generally takes two half-hour appointments to complete, while the take-home treatment delivers results in about one week. Our team of experienced dentists can help you make the right and most convenient decision for you, as both methods have their advantages.
Our team of dental professionals in Ottawa takes the utmost care to ensure that the procedure is carried out properly and under strict supervision, in order to minimise any potential side-effects. We carefully select our whitening solution to make sure that it is as safe as possible and provide our patients with ample information about follow-up care and what to expect. It is perhaps the follow-up guidance and support that makes the in-office treatment a little easier for many of our patients. If you have any concerns or questions about the procedure, please don’t hesitate to ask us.

Dental bonding is a procedure that uses the application of a composite resin to repair and improve the look of slightly damaged teeth. It is a good cosmetic solution for small chips and cracks, starting decay, and localised discoloration. It can also be used to close small gaps between teeth. Much like with veneers, the resin material can be custom-matched to the colour of the surrounding teeth, making the repairs of your tooth look as natural as possible.
The dentist begins by etching the surface of the affected tooth. This improves the retention of the composite resin. . The composite resin is then directly applied and shaped to your tooth and set using a high-intensity light. To finish, the material is smoothed and polished to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.
