veneers & lumineers

veneers

A beautiful smile says more about you than you think. A beautiful smile doesn’t just tell the world that you have a great Kits dentist or that you practice excellent oral health care by brushing at least twice a day and flossing once daily and visiting your dentist as often as recommended – usually once every six months. A beautiful smile says that you care about yourself and your appearance – and that you take pride in yourself. If your teeth are chipped, cracked or discoloured, that can negatively affect the way you look and feel. Porcelain veneers can quickly and easily change the look of your smile and the way you perceive yourself. In just a couple of appointment at La Vita Dental Centre, your Veneers Vancouver provider, your smile can become a smile you’re going to love showing off. Veneers are thin, durable porcelain shells that cover any imperfections in your smile. Veneers can improve the length and shape of your teeth, conceal space between your teeth, change the colour of your teeth and hide any chips or cracks from accidents or a bad bite. Veneers give you a natural smile through a minimally invasive bonding to your teeth.

 

lumineers

Lumineers are the latest veneer technology available on the market. As thin as contact lenses, Lumineers can be applied directly to the tooth without any grinding or trimming of your natural teeth. Lumineers are painless and give you a whiter smile that’s long-lasting and beautiful.

teeth whitening options

Zoom whitening

Life takes a toll on your smile. Age, medication, coffee, tea and foods can stain your smile and lower your self-esteem and confidence levels. Lighten up your mood and life by lightening your smile and contact your Kits dentist, La Vita Dental Centre, for Zoom Whitening treatments. Zoom Whitening is one of the most effective whitening system possible and available only at your dentist. Whiten your smile in as little  as one hour at our Kits dental clinic or white your smile in as little as one week with our Zoom Whitening Take Home kits. Unlike store-bought whitening strips, Zoom Whitening is quick, efficient and whitens your smile up to 6 shades whiter, taking your smile from okay to incredible in just a few short hours. Zoom Whitening is a whitening gel that contains the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide and works through light-activation to remove deep stains  and reveal a whiter smile. Zoom Whitening is enamel-safe and won’t affect the strength of your teeth.

 

POLA whitening

La Vita Dental Centre is proud to offer you tooth whitening options that work for you and your lifestyle. Contact us if you’re not sure which whitening treatment is the best choice for your smile and we’ll be happy to help get you on your way to a brighter, whiter smile. Pola Whitening is one of the most quick and efficient chemically-activated tooth whitening system available. Pola Whitening bleaching gel contains 37.5% hydrogen peroxide and helps inhibit sensitivity by using a neutral pH bleach. Additionally, a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide means that patients are less likely to experience sensitivity due to a short bleaching time. Pola Whitening gel is applied directly to the teeth and left for approximately 10 minutes – there are no high-intensity lights necessary. The whitening agent is wiped off the teeth and reapplied another three to four times. Pola Whitening offers you relatively low sensitivity and the same whitening effects as most whitening treatments available on the market.

 

botox

Botox Cosmetic

Botox is frequently used to cosmetically improve a person’s facial features, however it can also be used to better your dental health. This is a procedure that our Kitsilano dentist, Dr. Mansfield, offers to all clients looking for dental relief. Botox is not just used for cosmetics alone. Its therapeutic properties can be used on muscular tissues that jerk or clench unwillingly, for teeth clenching and grinding, headaches, TMJ issues, as well as other medical troubles. If you struggle with any of these dental problems, Botox could be a suggested treatment for you. Our Kitsilano dental practice staff are highly-qualified and trained in the administering of Botox as a dental treatment. It is actually a wonderful substitute to traditional procedures like splints or night guards. TMJ Disorder, teeth grinding and clenching may cause severe discomfort and damage your teeth. With Botox, these symptoms are treated to diminish the damaged muscle mass. It’s a helpful procedure that works as an effective therapy.

 

oral surgery

Though expressions such as “it’s like pulling teeth” and “I’d rather get a root canal” are still popular today, our Kits dentists believe that advancements in dentistry have made oral surgery relatively quick and painless. We invite you to trust your smile to La Vita Dental Centre and come experience VIP dentistry that’s both comfortable and comforting.

CEREC one visit crowns

CEREC one visit crowns can help restore your smile and the appearance of your teeth in just one quick, easy visit to our Kits dental clinic. CEREC  one visit crowns are a revolutionary new way to protect your teeth. If you’ve had a cavity removed or root canal therapy done on your tooth, a crown or cap is intended to protect your tooth and restore its functionality and appearance. Traditionally, crowns require two appointments and you must wear a temporary plastic crown between appointments while your permanent crown is crafted in a lab. However with CEREC one visit crowns, you can get your smile back in just one appointment. How so? CEREC one visit crowns are custom-created by 3D computer technology right at our Kits dental clinic so you can come for just one appointment and leave with a new smile. CEREC crowns are crafted out of a durable porcelain and match the natural look of your teeth.

crowns & bridges

Crowns and Bridges are popular dental treatments offered at your Kits dentist, La Vita Dental Centre. Depending on the condition of your tooth, you may require a crown or a bridge to restore your smile’s appearance and functionality. Teeth that are heavily decayed may be too weak to restore with just a white composite filling, in which case your Kits dentist at La Vita Dental Centre will cap your tooth with a crown and strengthen and protect it. Bridges are an excellent solution to a missing tooth if you’re not a candidate for dental implants or if you don’t want a partial denture. A bridge is a natural-looking porcelain tooth that is bonded in place of the missing tooth by connecting it to the adjacent teeth.

inlays & onlays

Inlays & onlays are custom-created pieces of porcelain or resin and offer you an alternative to fillings. Inlays/Onlays resemble your natural tooth structure and protect your tooth. Inlays are used inside your tooth and onlays are similar to crowns, laying over the chewing surface of your tooth. Inlays/Onlays are durable and preserve your tooth structure. They generally require two appointments. During your initial appointment, we will take an impression of your tooth and send it to our dental laboratory to create any necessary inlays or onlays for your smile. On your second visit, your inlays/onlays will be placed in your tooth. Our team will ensure that the fit and bite is correct so that you can smile with confidence again.
