What do you like or dislike about your smile? Are your teeth discoloured, crooked, out of proportion or worn down? Are you missing teeth? At Big Smiles, we offer a variety of smile-enhancing procedures that can boost your self-confidence! Smile- enhancing treatments include but aren’t limited to:
Over time, stain particles from food, beverages, tobacco and disease can result in tooth discolouration. Discolouration is also a natural part of aging, as the outer layer of our teeth progressively thins, revealing the yellow dentin underneath. Fortunately, there are treatment options for moving dental stains, such as over-the-counter whitening products. Ask our staff about the best teeth whitening options to remove stains and discolouration.
Orthodontic treatments focus on correcting bites, aligning the jaw and straightening teeth. At Big Smiles Little Bay we offer traditional braces, as well as Invisalign.
A tooth implant replaces a missing tooth. It is made from metal and looks like a screw, and is placed directly into the jaw bone over a series of minor operations. The bone naturally grows around the tooth as it heals, holding the implant in place. Finally, a crown is attached to the implant. It fills up the missing space and is designed to look just like your other teeth in shape and colour.
Crown and Bridge
Crowns and bridges are a solution for damaged or missing teeth. A crown is a prosthetic that resembles a real tooth, which completely covers up, or ‘caps’ a damaged tooth. A bridge is often used when a patient is missing one or more teeth. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth, and cover the gap where the missing teeth used to be.
Lip augmentation increases the size and fullness of the lips. It is achieved by injecting medical fillers such as hyaluronic acid into the lip area. Dr. Fanous uses a product that typically lasts up to 6 months.
Anti-wrinkle injections not only work to keep wrinkles at bay, but also can be used to fix a ‘gummy’ smile or used therapeutically to treat TMJ disorder, teeth grinding and teeth clenching. Results are seen within a few days and will last for several months.
