A Focus on the Appearance of Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the look of your smile. While some procedures are designed to provide a healthier smile, the goal of cosmetic dentistry is to give your smile dazzling yet natural-looking aesthetics. However, you can depend on our holistic practice to make certain that any cosmetic enhancements you choose harmonize with the health of your smile to provide you with maximum benefits.
What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do For Me?
Improved Mental/Physical Health
Studies show that smiling causes chemical reactions in your body that can reduce pain, improve your mood, strengthen the immune system, and relieve stress. Not smiling or laughing due to a damaged smile in need of cosmetic treatment can have the opposite effect.
Eat a Healthier Diet
If you are missing teeth, you know that chewing certain kinds of foods can be difficult and painful. Lifelike restorations firmly attached to dental implants can help you expand your food options. You can enjoy a healthy, nutritious diet rich in raw fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
Improved Cosmetic Appearance
A bright, complete smile achieved by our dentists can make you look younger than if you have gaps in your smile or yellowed, discolored teeth. Replacing missing teeth with dental crowns, bridges, or dentures can also fill out your face, avoiding an aged appearance.
Restored Oral Health
Cosmetic dentistry can contribute to better dental health. We can restore decayed teeth with crowns or non-metallic, tooth-colored fillings. We can also straighten teeth with Invisalign plastic aligners, and prevent bone loss in the jaw with dental implants.
Concerns That Cosmetic Dentistry Can Treat
This type of dentistry is tailored to each patient's needs. Patients often come to our Vancouver office seeking cosmetic care for the following dental concerns:
- Chips or Cracks
- Worn or Damaged Teeth
- Lost Teeth
- Dental Discoloration
- Minor Dental Misalignment
- Crowded Teeth
- Dark Silver Fillings
- Old Dental Restorations
You've Mentioned Holistic Dentists What Does That Mean?
Basically, holistic dentistry means our dentists aim to improve our patients' lives by exploring the connection between oral health issues and chronic illnesses that can affect your entire body. We do this by treating the source of your symptoms, not just the symptoms themselves.
Our Vancouver, BC, practice only uses bio-compatible dental materials such as zirconium ceramic implants (instead of titanium) to avoid any allergic reactions to metal. Our dentists also safely replace potentially toxic mercury amalgam fillings with tooth-colored composite ones.
We also use innovative techniques such as ozone therapy to destroy bacteria in the mouth and platelet-rich fibrin therapy to promote healing.
Feeling dissatisfied with the aesthetics of your smile can take a toll on your confidence. Fortunately, the team at Enlighten Dental is ready to help you achieve and maintain the beautiful smile you deserve.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Include:
Implants are regarded as the best way to replace missing teeth. Our dentists will surgically place long-lasting ceramic implants into your jawbone which will securely support high-quality dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or dentures. The implants act as artificial tooth roots that stimulate healthy bone growth. This can prevent jawbone atrophy caused by missing teeth.
The aging process, dark beverages, and tobacco use are just some of the things that can cause your teeth to become stained or yellow. Our professional teeth whitening treatments can brighten your teeth faster and better than whitening products bought in stores. Contact our Vancouver practice about our teeth whitening options.
Veneers are a versatile solution to many aesthetic problems. These thin but strong tooth-colored shells are customized to fit directly over front teeth. Veneers can mask flaws such as cracks, chips, breaks, or internal stains that do not respond to whitening treatments. Our veneers are crafted to match the color of your existing teeth.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
If we find a decayed tooth or you broke a tooth, a same-day CEREC® crown can restore it during one appointment. A precise digital impression of your smile will be sent to our in-house milling machine, where a customized, bio-compatible porcelain crown will be crafted while you relax. The crown will be placed on your tooth in about an hour.
When worn for 20-22 hours a day, these clear, plastic aligners can straighten your teeth discreetly and effectively. Invisalign aligners can be removed at mealtimes and when you brush and floss, making them much more convenient than traditional metal braces.
Replacing potentially harmful mercury amalgam fillings with tooth-colored composite fillings is one of Enlighten Dental's specialties. Our dentists are certified to perform SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) to make the removal of toxic mercury from your mouth as safe as possible for everyone involved.

Our mission is to teach our patients how their oral health can not only transform their smiles but their overall health as well.
