Cosmetic dentistry is dental work that can improve the appearance and function of the teeth. Cosmetic Dentist can whiten and reshape the teeth, replace missing teeth, and repair chipped teeth through a number of cosmetic dentistry options. Whether you want a charming "Celebrity smile makeover" or a more attractive look, we can cater to your specific needs.
There are many cosmetic options available to our patients, which are listed below:
Teeth whitening is a procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth. Every day, a thin coating forms on your teeth and it picks up stains. Teeth Whitening is not a single-time solution. It has to be repeated on a regular basis.
Composite Filling is a tooth-colored(white) plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composite Fillings, are made of a plastic dental resin, are durable, strong, and make for a natural looking smile. They bond to tooth structure chemically and thus do not require the placement of slots, grooves or pins in healthy tooth structure to mechanically retain them. The bonding of composite fillings in the teeth, restore 85% - 95% of the original strength of the tooth.
Porcelain Veneers, also referred to as dental veneers or porcelain laminates, are wafer thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of teeth to create a cosmetic improvement and sometimes a bite improvement. Porcelain veneers have successfully improved smiles, by making dark teeth look lighter and healthier. They can make yellow teeth permanently whiter and look much more natural. Porcelain veneers can make crooked teeth look straight. Patients can look and feel more confident, and have a beautiful natural looking smile.
Lumineers are thin shells like a contact lens, that are placed over the existing teeth to cover stains, discolored, chips and close the gaps. Lumineers are a brand of dental veneers and does not require any drill, shots or grind of tooth, while placing lumineers on existing tooth. Dental Lumineers helps patients to get a natural looking beautiful smile.
Gum contouring is another conservative procedure which can make a significant contribution to the enhancement of a smile. The gum line of the front teeth may not always grow in at the right place on the teeth. Sometimes the erratic eruption of teeth can cause the gum line to end up covering the top of the teeth resulting in a gummy smile and small teeth. This corrective procedure is the simplest while providing the most dramatic cosmetic results.
A tooth may be slightly longer or have a different shape than its neighboring tooth. With a procedure called recontouring, your dentist can reshape the tooth so that it's a better match. The process is often combined with bonding, a cosmetic dentistry treatment that uses tooth-colored composite material to sculpt and shape the teeth.
The teeth play a very important role in creating a perfect smile. It is necessary to have good set of teeth and to be in harmony with the face, the lip line, the curvature of the mouth, etc. The same size and shape of teeth in one smile would look very aesthetic, while in another, they would not. Dentistry is able to alter, reorganize and reposition teeth without any harmful effects and while keeping the look, feel and behavior of natural teeth.
