Cosmetic Dentistry

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry helps you brighten your smile. It is a technique of oral care that can fix your malpositioned or discolored teeth. Although, sometimes it is a personal choice to undergo this treatment, it does help patients experience a boost in their confidence. However, every patient’s area of concern varies. As a result, we discuss with every individual their various options before finalizing the treatment solution.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Teeth Whitening

This is the easiest way to enhance your smile. After removing the plaque and other debris, teeth are whitened with the help of bleaching and teeth whitening agents. We can give your smile an amazing makeover through this procedure. However, you can get trays and gels over-the-counter to whiten your teeth at home, but getting it done from a professional dentist will help you achieve better results.

Composite Bonding

This is a great option that can replace misshapen and damaged teeth. The putty-like filling of resin resembling the tooth color is used, which is then hardened with a light to bond the tooth with the surface. It is further adjusted and polished to refine the look. Apart from the damage and misshapen teeth, problems like decay and worn edges can also be handled through this procedure.

Dental Veneers

These super thin porcelain shells work as cover for various cosmetic problems like gaps between teeth, broken teeth, or damaged enamel. This layer is applied on the front portion of every affected tooth with the help of adhesive. These custom-made veneers go over the natural teeth and help improve the esthetics.

Dental Implants

This procedure is implemented to replace severely damaged or decayed teeth. A titanium replacement tooth is placed under the gum in the area of the missing tooth. Gradually, when the gum heals, it can replace a tooth by placing an abutment and crown. This helps restore function and esthetics. This procedure can work for the decayed teeth and teeth affected by periodontal disease as well.

Inlays and Onlays

These are indirect fillings made of materials like gold or nowadays porcelain and ceramic. Both Inlays and Outlays are made in a laboratory and then bonded with the affected tooth. The filling is called ‘Inlay’ when it is bonded with the center of the tooth, and it is called ‘Onlay’ when it is bonded with the biting or outer surface of the tooth.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

  • Just like good clothes and great makeup, a ‘smile makeover’ is also able to boost confidence.
  • When your teeth are aligned, they are easier to clean and can prevent plaque and debris buildup. This can help prevent decay and gum disease.
  • As dental technology is improving, so is improving the cost-effectiveness of the treatments. Also, we will try to provide easy payment options for the procedures.
  • Most dental clinics are all-inclusive that provide all the services under one roof. This makes getting a smile makeover a hassle-free process.
  • The improved dental technology has also reduced the time of dental treatment now. The tooth replacement or teeth straightening can sometimes be done in a shorter timeframe.
  • Dental procedures and pain were synonyms before, but now most of the treatments can be pain-free and some do not require as much time to heal allowing you to return to your daily routine faster.
