Your Downtown Ottawa
Cosmetic Dentist

Smiles come in all different shapes and sizes, and sometimes people like to make a few changes — like brightening, fixing chips or uneven surfaces, or adjusting their shape and position. As we get older, our teeth and gums can change. Sometimes it just takes a few minor adjustments to restore your smile back to its former glory.

If you’re interested in learning more about how cosmetic dentistry could rejuvenate your smile — and boost your confidence — please call Pretoria Bridge Dental today to schedule a consultation. We’d be happy to tell you more. Need more information about Cosmetic Dentistry in Downtown Ottawa? Contact us today.

CEREC is an advanced digital methodology for the design and production of ceramic crowns. It is used to make ceramic crowns, inlays & onlays. CEREC is performed chair-side and produces very high-quality dental restorations.


Most people in good health are eligible for dental veneers. That being said, there are certain conditions which might complicate getting veneers, such as:

  • If a tooth has decay this must be addressed before getting veneers
  • If a tooth is in an area with periodontal disease the disease must first be treated
  • If a tooth has little enamel left the veneer might not stick to the tooth
  • If too much of the tooth is missing a dental crown might be a better option
  • If a person grinds or clenches their teeth this can chip and damage dental veneers
Normal veneers are permanently attached to your teeth after removing or reducing some of the patient’s tooth enamel so that the porcelain veneers can be placed on the teeth. Prepless veneers are a less-invasive form of veneers which is similar to standard veneers but with several advantages. Unlike traditional veneers, your dentist does not need to remove enamel and the veneers can be placed directly on your teeth. Also, contrary to normal veneers, prepless veneers can also be removed. If you would like prepless veneers, contact Pretoria Bridge Dental to book an appointment today!
Anybody with a healthy mouth and clean teeth is a candidate for prepless veneers. That being said your teeth don’t have to be perfect, in fact they shouldn’t be! Veneers are for people looking to improve the appearance of their smile. If you have significant staining, cracks, chips, short, mismatched, or worn-down teeth, dental veneers are a great option to improve your smile.
Dental contouring is also known as tooth reshaping or enameloplasty is a cosmetic dental procedure which is done to change the shape, widge, or length of your teeth. Dental contouring is done by removing small amounts of tooth enamel to achieve the shape you want. Even a few millimeters of reduction in the right places can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. If you require only a few small fixes to your teeth, dental contouring is a great option.
Dental bonding also known as bonded restoration, is a way to make minor repairs to your teeth. Bonding uses a composite resin with the same colour as teeth to reshape teeth. Your dentist will place the resin on your tooth, shape it, and then harden it with light. Dental bonding can be used to repair a chipped tooth, fill in large gaps between teeth, or restore a broken tooth to size, so if any of these issues are affecting you dental bonding is a great treatment option. If you think dental bonding could be for you, contact Pretoria Bridge Dental to book an appointment today!

Depending on the teeth whitening procedure, your diet, smoking habits, and oral hygiene, this can vary depending on the person. However, on average teeth whitening can last up to 3 years.

To keep your teeth in good condition after a teeth whitening session, there are some common foods you should avoid within the first 24-72 hours of your teeth whitening session. Foods to avoid can include:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Red wine
  • Soda or pop
  • Fruit juices
  • Alcohol
  • Soy sauce
  • Ketchup
  • Sugary foods like cake, cookies, and ice cream

At Pretoria Bridge Dental, we offer smile makeovers for our Ottawa patients. A smile makeover typically involves a combination of one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments. These cosmetic procedures can include teeth whitening, dental bonding, veneers, dental crowns, implants, and more!

The goal of a smile makeover is to address a couple of different pain points when it comes to your smile in order to achieve a total makeover! Contact the team at Pretoria Bridge Dental today for a consultation.

Oral hygiene is extremely important following your dental crown procedure. Within the first day after your dental crown procedure, you should brush and floss gently by pulling the string through. This ensures you don’t pull up on your crown with the floss.

For best practices based on your particular situation, it’s best to consult your specific dental professional. They will be able to provide a detailed guide for oral hygiene following any cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Dental bonding usually lasts between 3 and 10 years but can vary depending on the lifestyle habits of the patient. Dental bonding can last longer or shorter depending on how well you stick to an oral hygiene routine, which areas of your mouth are bonded, how often you visit the dentist, your smoking habits, dietary choices, and much more.
