Keep Your Smile Healthy And Beautiful!

Aesthetic And Restoration Dentistry

Aesthetic restoration refers to the process of restoring the appearance of damaged, decayed or discolored teeth. Cosmetic restoration includes a range of services such as teeth whitening, veneers and crowns. It not only improves the appearance of your smile, but can also improve the function of your teeth and your overall oral health. At Center Dentaire Ste-Foy, our experienced dental team can help you achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening can help restore the natural shine of your teeth and eliminate discoloration caused by aging, smoking, or certain foods and drinks. During your dental examination, mention that you are interested in whitening. We will then ensure that there are no contraindications that apply to you (age, pregnancy, prior restoration to be done). We will then be able to explain the two whitening techniques that our clinic offers, chair whitening or home whitening, as well as the duration and costs associated with each of them.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a long-lasting, natural-looking solution to replace one or more missing teeth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and topped with a custom crown or prosthesis to restore the appearance and function of your teeth.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are made up of a thin layer of ceramic or composite that your dentist places directly on the front of your teeth to repair small chips and cracks or to improve their aesthetic appearance, including coloring. The placement of veneers is not painful and is done quickly.

Tooth crown

The dental crown is often made of ceramic. It is made to be able to encompass your tooth perfectly and restore a natural appearance. It strengthens your tooth which has been weakened by a cavity, a fracture or another factor.

Inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays are custom-made dental restorations that are used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. They are made of durable materials that mimic the natural color and texture of your teeth and can help improve their appearance and function.

Frequently Asked Questions

Aesthetic restoration refers to the use of dental materials and techniques to restore the natural appearance of damaged, decayed or discolored teeth. Unlike traditional restorative methods that prioritize functionality over aesthetics, aesthetic restoration focuses on achieving both functionality and a natural-looking smile.

Cosmetic restoration can solve a wide range of dental problems, including chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, stains and discoloration, misshapen teeth, etc.

The most common materials used in aesthetic restoration are composite resin and ceramic. These materials are chosen for their durability, natural appearance, and ability to blend seamlessly with existing teeth.

The duration of aesthetic restoration procedures can vary depending on the extent of the damage and the specific treatment used. In some cases, the procedure can be completed in one appointment, while other procedures may require multiple appointments over several weeks.

Most cosmetic restoration procedures are minimally invasive and relatively painless. However, patients may experience some tenderness or discomfort during the procedure which can be managed with local anesthesia.

The longevity of the aesthetic restoration depends on a variety of factors, including the materials used, the extent of damage, and the patient’s oral hygiene habits. Aesthetic restoration, however, can last for many years with proper care.

Dental restoration is a branch of dentistry that focuses on repairing and restoring damaged, decayed, or weakened teeth. Teeth can experience damage due to factors like tooth decay, fractures, wear, or other issues. The goal of dental restoration is to strengthen the tooth structure, restore chewing function, and enhance dental aesthetics.

Dental restoration can involve various types of treatments, such as fillings to address cavities, crowns to cover and protect damaged teeth, veneers to correct aesthetic imperfections, and other procedures aimed at restoring the integrity and beauty of the teeth. 

Different materials are used in dental restoration depending on the clinical situation and the patient’s aesthetic preferences. Among the commonly used materials are composite resin, ceramics, and metals.


Composite resins are often used for fillings because they can be color-matched to the natural shade of teeth, making them discreet and aesthetically pleasing. Ceramics are frequently employed for crowns, veneers, and inlays/onlays, as they provide a natural appearance and high strength. Metals, such as gold and metal alloys, are also used for certain restorations due to their durability and resistance to wear.
