In the past decade, interest in cosmetic dentistry has dramatically grown. It seems we have all realized that having a healthy, bright, and beautiful smile can enhance our appearance and help us smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, the team at London Road Dental in Lethbridge has been able to improve our patients’ teeth and smiles with quick and cost effective treatments.
If you’re interested in cosmetic dentistry, Lethbridge’s London Road Dental can help you understand each procedure and determine if you’re a good candidate for a procedure. Some cosmetic dentistry procedures require your existing teeth to be altered, so be sure to contact us to learn about your options.

Crowns and bridges: Dental crowns are ceramic or metal caps for the tops of your teeth built based on an impression of your teeth so they fit in your mouth perfectly. They are often used in conjunction with dental bridges, which are metal structures crowns can attach to. Crowns and bridges can:
