Resources Cosmetic Dentistry, Dental Implants, Smile Makeover, Full Mouth Reconstruction

Welcome! We’re glad you found us. If you’re curious about cosmetic dentistry or are searching for the latest and greatest insights on state-of-the-art dentistry, we’ve got you covered.

I’m Dr. Michael Webster, Owner and General Practitioner at Kelowna Dental Centre. And in this article, I’m delighted to share some of cosmetic dentistry’s most remarkable benefits and how we approach cosmetic care here at KDC.

Firstly, you need to know that we’re obsessively passionate about transforming our patients’ smiles, improving their overall health, and ultimately enhancing their quality of life. So get ready to dive deep into cosmetic dentistry, exploring the range of treatments we offer, their numerous aesthetic and functional advantages, and their profound psychological impact on our patients’ lives.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is defined as any procedure designed to improve the appearance of someone’s smile. It’s a uniquely diverse dental subfield comprising a range of services and procedures. Cosmetic dentistry includes standard teeth whitening, dental implants, complete smile makeovers, and anything in-between. 

For some time, we as a society have been engrossed by quick fixes and at-home methods for enhancing the appearance of our smiles. This has sometimes meant dabbling with trendy fads and pseudoscience in search of perfect pearly whites. Remember charcoal toothpaste? Everyone thought—or was led to believe—that it would change teeth whitening forever. But it turns out charcoal was doing more harm than good for folks who made it a part of their oral health regimen.

All that to say, there are simply no shortcuts or replacements for high-quality, caring cosmetic dental care. Just as Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell once crooned, “Ain’t nothing like the real thing.” 

Cosmetic Dentistry at Kelowna Dental Centre

We believe in the power of cosmetic dentistry to elevate smiles and transform lives – we literally see it first-hand every day! We take great pride in offering our patients a comprehensive range of cosmetic dentistry services to meet their unique health needs and smile wants. And our team of highly-skilled, experienced dental professionals is consistently dedicated to providing personalized care and helping individuals achieve the smile of their dreams.

Whether you’re looking to enhance the color, shape, or alignment of your teeth, we have the expertise and state-of-the-art technology to deliver outstanding results.

Some of the in-house cosmetic services we’re proud to offer include:

Teeth Whitening

Brightening your smile is a simple yet powerful way to enhance its appearance. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize advanced techniques and safe, effective whitening agents to remove stubborn stains and discoloration, revealing a radiant, youthful smile.


Veneers are one of the most sought-after cosmetic dental procedures and for good reason. These thin shells, made of high-quality porcelain or composite resin, are custom-crafted and bonded to the front surface of teeth, effectively transforming their appearance. Veneers cover up dental imperfections like stains, chips, gaps, and misalignments, creating a natural-looking smile.


We offer Invisalign for individuals seeking a discreet and convenient solution to straighten their teeth. This innovative orthodontic treatment involves using clear, removable aligners that gradually move the teeth into their desired positions. With Invisalign, you can achieve a beautifully aligned smile without traditional braces.

Dental Implants

Dental implants may be ideal if you have missing teeth and desire a permanent, natural-looking solution. Our skilled implant dentists replace missing teeth with durable, implant-supported restorations that function and feel like natural teeth. Dental implants restore your smile and help preserve jawbone health and prevent further tooth loss.

Full Mouth Reconstructions

A full-mouth reconstruction will give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. The nature of your full-mouth reconstruction, which may include both the upper and lower jaws, will depend on your condition. Full mouth reconstruction begins with in-depth, comprehensive consults that allow us to hear you, precisely determine causative factors and desired outcomes, and collaboratively plan your path to oral health success.

Smile Makeovers

Our smile makeovers are tailored to address multiple dental concerns and deliver comprehensive transformations. We can create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted by combining various cosmetic procedures, such as veneers, teeth whitening, and orthodontics.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Aesthetic Benefits

Our primary objective in any cosmetic treatment plan is to create a pleasant smile that fits in flawlessly with your accompanying facial features. By addressing your areas of concern, like tooth discoloration, chips, cracks, or gaps, we can confidently turn your smile into a personalized masterpiece.

We harness advanced dental techniques and cutting-edge materials to adjust the size, shape, color, and alignment of your teeth. Our highly skilled dentists will thoroughly evaluate your dental condition and discuss your aspirations comprehensively, ensuring that the treatment plan is precisely tailored to achieve the best possible results.

Whether you’re seeking subtle refinements, a complete smile makeover, or something in the middle, we will customize your cosmetic regimen to align with your unique desires and goals.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Health and Functional Benefits

The functional advantages of cosmetic dentistry are significant. Correcting misaligned teeth and bites can improve chewing and speaking abilities, ensuring efficient and effective oral function. This not only enhances day-to-day activities but also helps prevent potential dental problems in the future.

Moreover, the impact of cosmetic dentistry on one’s overall health and well-being is profound. Many individuals who seek cosmetic dental procedures have carried emotional burdens associated with their smiles for years. The transformation they experience through cosmetic dentistry often leads to a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem. It can be a life-changing experience, restoring their ability to smile freely, interact with others, and pursue their personal and professional goals with newfound assurance.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Psychological Benefits

The psychological impact of cosmetic dentistry is truly remarkable, with the ability to reverse years of self-consciousness and restore confidence in individuals’ smiles. Cosmetic dentistry provides a life-changing solution for those who have endured a complete lack of confidence, hiding their smiles and avoiding photographs. Via cosmetic procedures, individuals are empowered to proudly showcase their newfound beauty and radiate self-assurance in every interaction.

The confidence gained from a beautiful smile can significantly impact an individual’s day-to-day life, influencing their ability to secure job opportunities and form meaningful relationships. The newfound self-assurance can open doors and create a positive ripple effect in their lives.

Scientifically, smiling has been proven to have numerous benefits on overall well-being. It triggers the release of hormones that promote happiness, reduce blood pressure, and increase endurance. By enhancing smiles through cosmetic dentistry, individuals improve their physical appearance and experience the physiological benefits of smiling.

Cosmetic dentistry truly offers a transformative experience, combining the artistry of dental aesthetics with the science of well-being. At Kelowna Dental Centre, our work demonstrates a keen understanding of a beautiful smile’s profound impact on our patients’ lives.
