At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, we are proud to offer you Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry services aimed at creating a positive change for you and your teeth. Our services range from repairing a malformed bite, misshapen, crooked or discoloured teeth, to treating injuries or even just improving your overall smile.
Our Cosmetic dentistry services are primarily focused on aesthetic improvement in colour, position, shape, size, and the alignment of your teeth, as well as the overall appearance of your smile. Research suggests that there is a strong link between a healthy, beautiful smile, and your personal confidence.
At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, our dedicated team of professionals will thoroughly examine your overall health and determine the most appropriate cosmetic and/or restorative treatment options that suit your needs.
At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, our professional team offers dental restorations using mercury-free white fillings.
These fillings are used to restore the function of decayed teeth or teeth damaged bytrauma and may also be used as a cosmetic dentistry option for cosmetic bonding treatments. Mercury-free fillings are composite fillings that do not contain any traces of mercury. Traditional dental filling materials like silver or gold contain some amount of mercury.
Traditional dental filling materials may not be as aesthetically pleasing because the gold and silver show against the natural colour of your teeth. Instead, West 17th Avenue Dental Care offers white mercury-free fillings to provide natural looking aesthetic results. Our dentists are able to blend different shades of white material to match the natural remaining structure of your tooth.
To treat your damaged tooth, our qualified dentists will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then ‘fill’ the area of the tooth where the decayed material once lived. Once the filling material is applied, a special light is used to set the white filling material, making it hard and durable against normal biting forces, and almost imperceptible against the natural remaining tooth structure.
At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, we offer porcelain veneers as an option to restore or enhance your smile’s beauty. Patients who wish to improve or change the look of healthy teeth may want to consider porcelain veneers to achieve their smile goals.
A veneer is a thin custom-made shell of porcelain or plastic that is bonded to a tooth to improve its colour and shape. A veneer generally covers only the front and top of a tooth. Veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained or dark teeth. Additionally, if teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, porcelain veneers can be a great option to protect compromised teeth from additional damage, while at the same time restoring or enhancing their original appearance.
Porcelain Veneers can even be specially fitted to reshape crooked teeth that may otherwise require braces or invisalign, thereby allowing treatment options to those who might otherwise avoid it because they don’t want traditional orthodontic treatment. If you or someone you know is interested in transforming your smile by enhancing or completely concealing imperfections, consider West 17th Avenue Dental Care for a consultation soon.
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
If you have a chipped, cracked, decaying, stained or discoloured tooth, a cosmetic dental procedure like tooth bonding can give you the confidence to flash your smile.
Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure where a tooth-coloured composite resin is applied to one or more of your teeth to repair damage. This procedure can also close small gaps in between teeth, as well as increase the size of a tooth. It’s called bonding because the material literally bonds to the tooth, repairing any damage or discoloration.
Cosmetic tooth bonding is ideal for small cosmetic dentistry work and can also be used as a tooth-coloured filling for small cavities because it’s more cosmetically appealing than silver fillings. Our experienced team at West 17th Avenue Dental Care can help you decide if Cosmetic Tooth Bonding is an appropriate option for you.

West 17th Avenue Dental Care is pleased to offer Botox treatments to our patients! The use of Botox in general dentistry has recently become more widespread, as it can be used both cosmetically and therapeutically.
Cosmetically it can be used to reduce the appearance of aging by softening facial lines and wrinkles, including forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Injections are administered into the facial muscles in minute quantities to temporarily paralyze a patient’s muscles, which creates a smoother, younger look. Botox can also be used in conjunction with cosmetic dental treatment to improve the ‘look’ of your smile by improving uneven lips/smile and a “gummy” smile.
Therapeutically, Botox can be used to relax facial muscles in order to help patients struggling with dental issues such as Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) dysfunction of the TMJ. Since the TMJ muscle is located on both sides of your head at the point where the jaw meets the skull, relieving the muscular tension in these muscles can provide the relief you require. Botox can also help with patients suffering from jaw pain relating to Bruxism issues such as clenching, grinding, or gnashing your teeth, as well as chronic migraines and headaches.
At West 17th Avenue Dental Care, we want you to take advantage of our Calgary Botox services so that you leave feeling relieved of your pain and/or are confident about your appearance!
