VENEERS, ORTHODONTICS, AND TEETH WHITENING IN RICHMOND

Dr. Jones Young is pleased to offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services such as orthodontics, crowns, and teeth whitening to help our Richmond-area patients show their beautiful smiles with confidence. We also offer Invisalign® consultations for those who wish to straighten their teeth without the need for metal brackets.

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and most bridges are cosmetic prosthetics fixed to your teeth. We use porcelain or gold to craft both crowns and bridges, bonding them to your teeth and carefully matching the colour to the rest of your smile. Crowns and bridges make your teeth more attractive, improve your bite and protect your smile all at the same time.
A cosmetic process that covers a severely damaged tooth with a synthetic cap (crown) to protect it and restore functionality to the tooth. Crowns are typically used by our dentist to cap or cover a damaged tooth, or to repair and protect an existing tooth.
The use of a fake tooth attached by two crowns on adjacent teeth to replace a missing tooth. Bridges are commonly used to fill a large gap or a space between teeth. A bridge is often an alternative to a dental implant or orthodontic work, for which many insurance plans will offer partial coverage.
Veneers are cosmetic shells bonded to the front of teeth, creating a facade that also protects your smile. Your Richmond cosmetic dentist uses porcelain veneers, perfectly shaded to match the colour of your real teeth to create a set of natural, perfect pearly whites.
Veneers are used to correct badly worn, chipped, stained or crooked teeth in the front of the mouth. Usually a two-step process, our dentist will first remove part of your existing tooth to make room for the Veneer, essentially making the procedure irreversible. Eventually after a few years, veneers do require some maintenance to look their best. Talk to us to find out if they are right for you.
Your Richmond cosmetic dentist can apply a cosmetic treatment that uses a special bleaching agent to whiten the coloration of tooth enamel.
Our clinic offers both in-office custom formulated whitening solutions and at-home whitening trays by Poladay. Brighten your smile safely in just one visit, or over time on your own schedule.
In-office whitening lasts about 90 minutes and whitens stained teeth up to 7 shades, instantly. Take-home whitening with custom trays takes about 30 minutes each day and whitens your teeth several shades in under 2 weeks.
But remember that whitening treatments only work as long as you are practicing good dental habits like coming in for routine cleanings an exams.
