Cosmetic dentistry intends to improve the aesthetics of a person’s smile. It consists of certain procedures such as teeth whitening, oral cleaning, veneers, crowns, bridges, fillings, bonding, implants, gum grafting, etc. Most of these procedures aim at improving the appearance of your smile and also the functionality of your mouth.
Popular cosmetic dental procedures
Teeth whitening: Our teeth easily tend to stain due to the consumption of a lot of colored foods, beverages, aerated drinks, or not brushing the teeth properly. We can help to improve the color of your teeth using our customized teeth whitening solutions. A whitening gel rich in hydrogen peroxide will be applied on the teeth, which helps to remove the stains off their surface.
Implants: A gap between the teeth left by an extracted tooth can ruin the aesthetics of the smile. Dental implants are the best way to restore missing teeth owing to their strength, stability, durability, and amazing aesthetics.
Veneers: Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that can be bonded to the surface of the teeth to improve their appearance and to get rid of the surface imperfections such as wear, chipping, minor cracks, etc. The color, translucency, and texture of the veneer can be matched precisely with that of the natural enamel.
Crowns: Crowns are known as dental caps as they cover the entire surface of the teeth. They are used to restore teeth that have undergone chipping, excessive wear, or fracture. Also, teeth that are weak due to a lack of nourishment can be held intact using crowns.
Bridges: Bridges are a common replacement for missing teeth that are fitted to the jawbone, and held in place by the teeth on either side. Since they are made from tooth-colored material, they would perfectly mimic the appearance of a real tooth.
Fillings: Fillings are ceramic or composite restoratives used to bring back a severely decayed/chipped tooth to its original shape and contour. They offer perfect sealing, thereby preventing the re-infection of the cavity.
Gum contouring: Gingivitis and periodontitis are two of the most severe gum diseases that can severely upset the oral health of an individual. They can cause gum receding and decay of tissues, putting the nearby teeth at risk as well. We can get rid of the infected gums through laser therapy and also grafting healthy tissues to the receded area.
