We, at Emerald Hills Dental Centre, believe that your smile is one of your most important features. With the ever-evolving technologies in dentistry and a variety of advanced treatment options, achieving a beautiful, healthy, aesthetic smile is now easy. If you feel that your smile is holding you back in your personal or professional life, now may be a good time to consider some of the more commonly performed procedures for cosmetic dentistry in Sherwood Park at Emerald Hills Dental Centre.
We offer comprehensive cosmetic dentistry solutions for people of all age groups. We are friendly and experienced in recommending to you the best possible solution depending on your problem. We believe in understanding our patients and, therefore, spend time with them to understand what it is about their smile that they don’t like and fix it. Before beginning any procedures, we clearly explain your options, length of treatment, and an accurate estimate of the cost so that you make an informed decision.
Cosmetic dentistry can address both your short and long-term goals, helping you improve your appearance to restore function and health.
We offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services in Sherwood Park, including:
Veneers: For damaged or stained teeth, veneers are tooth-coloured shells that cover imperfect teeth and substitute for tooth enamel.
Teeth whitening: If you want to brighten your smile with less expense or time, professional whitening teeth in the dentist’s office is safe and effective.
Orthodontics: Teenagers or adults, you don’t have to live with uneven or crowded teeth. You can choose between traditional braces or Invisalign.
Dentures: If gum disease or tooth decay has left you with missing teeth, complete or partial dentures tailored to your appearance not only support your facial features but also functions like eating and speaking.
Dental implants: Dental implants are used to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. An implant can be fitted with a crown to replace one tooth or a series of implants can support permanent dentures.

If you refrain from smiling because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth, take a sigh of relief! Veneers help you correct your teeth's imperfections and make you more confident. They are natural in appearance and can give you a beautiful smile with just a few minor adjustments.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from porcelain. They are designed to cover the front side of your teeth. Your dentist will create a unique model of your teeth which will be sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers are skillfully crafted. Your veneers are placed after preparing your teeth for their perfect alignment. Although veneers are stain-resistant, we recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.
If you need only a few of your teeth to be restored to get your dream smile, we advise you to go for metal-free crowns. They look like natural teeth and fit in alignment much better. The crown’s interior is made of biocompatible materials. Metal-free crowns are a combination of supreme quality and durability.
Although mechanical properties of metal-free crowns are similar to those of metal-ceramic crowns, their advantages are far more numerous.
Moreover, in the case of metal-free crowns, the removal of dental substance (filing down of teeth) is far less extensive. For example, to make a metal-ceramic crown, it is necessary to remove 1.5 – 2.0 mm of dental substance, whereas, in the case of metal-free crowns, only 0.3 – 1.0 mm of dental substance needs to be removed.
In most cases, metal-free crowns are made of zirconium or lithium-disilicate ceramic. In such a way, the produced crown is made of a material similar to glass; it is light and transparent, and at the same time as resistant as natural teeth. Zirconium crowns are very popular as they have extraordinary aesthetic and mechanical properties.
A zirconia bridge is designed similarly to the All-on-4tm permanent teeth replacement or screw-retained, implant-supported bridge, but with many more advantages:
Made from an extremely strong form of dental ceramic- Zirconium oxide
Compatible with the human body
People with metal allergies can go for it
Exceptionally strong and stable
The translucent appearance which provides a more natural match to your existing teeth
No black lines at the edge of the gum
People with dentures, people who might need dentures in future, people with metal allergies and almost everyone who has missing teeth can opt for a zirconia bridge.
Benefits of a Zirconia bridge:
It won't loosen or fall out (like dentures)
It gives you a confident, natural-looking smile
It doesn't cover the palate
It doesn't require bone grafting
It doesn't limit your food choices as dentures do
It gives you permanent, life-like teeth replacement that won't chip, stain or crack
