Top Non-Surgical Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Cosmetic dentistry is a popular service sought out by many individuals seeking to improve their smile and appearance. Advances in the dental industry have made it possible for individuals to achieve the perfect smile through non-surgical cosmetic dental treatments. This article will explore the top three non-surgical cosmetic dentistry options: teeth whitening, tooth-coloured filling, and porcelain veneers.


Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a treatment that involves removing extrinsic and intrinsic stains to enhance their brightness and whiteness. Various teeth whitening procedures are available, including in-office bleaching, at-home bleaching, and over-the-counter products.

Torbram Dental offers an at-home teeth whitening kit. This is the most common teeth whitening procedure. It involves applying a bleaching solution to the tooth’s surface for 10-15 days for perfect results. The at-home whitening kit can be used for 2 to 4 hours, two times daily is recommended. Store the leftover product in a cool and dry place. This allows you to use the excess product for touch-ups once every six months.

Teeth whitening under the guidance of a professional dentist is a safe and effective procedure that can significantly enhance an individual’s smile. However, it is essential to maintain oral hygiene and avoid lifestyle habits, foods, and drinks that stain the teeth to ensure the results last longer. It is also vital to speak with your dentist, who can offer you a safe way to achieve a bright and white smile.


Tooth-Coloured Filling

A tooth-coloured filling is a cosmetic dental treatment that involves the replacement of metal fillings with fillings made from composite resin. These fillings blend in seamlessly with the natural colour of the teeth, providing a more natural-looking smile. Tooth-coloured fillings are also helpful in repairing chipped or cracked teeth.

Composite resin is typically a combination of plastic and glass particles that can be molded to the desired shape and size. It is bonded to the tooth using a unique adhesive, which makes it solid and durable. Unlike metal fillings, tooth-coloured fillings do not contain mercury, making them a safer option for patients.

Tooth-coloured fillings are a safe and effective way to restore a tooth’s natural appearance while protecting it from further damage. They are long-lasting, stain-resistant, and virtually undetectable when compared to traditional metal fillings.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers involve the placement of thin, custom-made shells on the front of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are the perfect option for those wanting to improve and correct the appearance of minor imperfections, such as discolouration, chipped or broken teeth, and gaps between teeth.

The porcelain veneer process involves a consultation with a dentist to determine the patient’s needs and expectations. The dentist will take impressions to create custom veneers that fit perfectly. The veneers are then placed onto the teeth using a special adhesive.

Porcelain veneers are a solid and durable, long-lasting option for enhancing the appearance of the teeth. They are stain-resistant and can last for many years with proper oral hygiene. However, they are more expensive than other cosmetic dental treatments and require more extensive preparation.


In summary, non-surgical cosmetic dental treatments, including teeth whitening, tooth-coloured filling, and porcelain veneers, offer a less invasive and effective way to enhance the appearance of an individual’s smile. Always consult with your dentist to determine which cosmetic dental treatment is best suited to an individual’s needs and expectations. With the proper care, individuals can maintain their new smile for many years to come.

Additionally, good oral hygiene habits and visiting the dentist regularly are crucial to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Avoid sugary and acidic foods or beverages that directly impact oral health. Smoking and tobacco use should also be avoided as they can stain the teeth and cause other dental problems.


It is noteworthy that only some individuals are suitable candidates for cosmetic dental treatments. Individuals with underlying dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, or root canal infections may require other dental treatments before undergoing cosmetic procedures. A qualified dentist can evaluate an individual’s dental health and determine if they are suitable candidates for cosmetic dental treatments.


In conclusion, non-surgical cosmetic dental treatments such as teeth whitening, tooth-coloured filling, and porcelain veneers provide safe and effective ways to enhance an individual’s smile. Each treatment has its benefits and can be used to address specific dental issues. However, consulting with a qualified dentist is recommended to determine the most suitable treatment for an individual’s needs and expectations.
