cosmetic dentistry is it right for you

Did you know that smiling can be contagious, increase endorphins, improve confidence, reduce stress and increase your mood?

At Urban Smiles Colwood features a full range of Cosmetic Dentistry solutions. From teeth whitening (in-office or take home) and dental veneers to a full mouth reconstruction, cosmetic dentistry is about more than creating an aesthetically pleasing smile… it’s also about giving you the functionality you need for a healthy smile.

Teeth Whitening

Bright white smiles are becoming a more common request in recent years due to the rise in at-home teeth whitening treatments and Do-It-Yourself tooth whitening trends online. At Urban Smiles, we always recommend speaking with a dental professional before attempting any DIY treatments. Products like charcoal and baking soda can actually cause more harm than good to your teeth, leading to weakened enamel. If you are unhappy with the natural colour of your teeth, we can give you the extra help you need for truly pearly whites. We offer professional teeth whitening ( eg Zoom Whitening) as well as at-home teeth whitening kit to help restore your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

You might find yourself asking “Are veneers worth it?” when trying to figure out what your smile needs to be picture perfect. At Urban Smiles, our team can help rapidly improve the appearance of your chipped, cracked, worn, or stained teeth with thin shells of ceramic that bond to the front of your teeth called Veneers. Dental Veneers are often the most favorable solution to improving your smile as they can be applied in one visit but will make a difference that lasts a lifetime. The veneers process is easy, and the results are real.


Many of our patients visit us asking about the benefits of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign clear braces is that teeth can be straightened without the clunky look or rough feeling of traditional wire braces. The Invisalign process is done with removable aligners that are virtually invisible, and custom fitted to your mouth for optimal comfort. What makes Invisalign even better? Ideal for any age, Invisalign helps treat overbites, spaces, or crooked teeth in shorter periods than traditional braces, so you can achieve the smile you deserve in as little as 6 months.

Smile Makeovers

In some cases, there is more than one cosmetic procedure or treatment involved in achieving your dream smile. At Urban Smiles Colwood, we will create a custom treatment plan for you that includes all of the smile makeover options. Whether you need veneers, Invisalign, or whitening (or all three), we will ensure that you leave our office with the smile makeover of your dreams.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is different than a typical smile makeover as it can involve a complex series of treatments. We start the process with a comprehensive examination to determine the extent of your needs (major tooth loss, injuries, fractures, etc.) and which treatment processes will be best for you. Our examination will thoroughly evaluate the condition of your teeth, gums, joints, muscles and bite as well as the overall look of your teeth and smile. A full mouth reconstruction can help you improve the health, function, and beauty of your smile.

It is important to us at Urban Smiles Colwood that all of our patients feel comfortable reaching out for help with their smile if they desire it or experience any problems.
