The aesthetics of a person's smile is equally essential to their oral health. As dentists, we give equal prominence to both, which is why an entire branch of dentistry is dedicated to improving the smile's appearance. Cosmetic dentistry includes several restorative and non-invasive procedures that aim at improving the aesthetics of the smile. We provide the best quality dental care and make sure our patients always leave our dental practice with a beautiful and happy smile.
How can the Aesthetics of your smile be improved?
Teeth whitening: Teeth whitening is an inexpensive, simple, and quick dental procedure that significantly enhances the aesthetics of your smile. The dentist will apply a teeth whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide on your teeth, allow it to stay on the surface for a few minutes, and rinse it with water. The hydrogen peroxide in the whitening gel liberates oxygen molecules that penetrate the enamel's porous surface and bleach the staining particles. The procedure can be performed multiple times depending on the severity of teeth discoloration.
Veneers: Dental veneers are restorations made from tooth-colored ceramic. They are extremely thin and are bonded to the frontal surface of the teeth using dental adhesives. They can be used to treat oral concerns such as chipped, naturally misshapen, worn out, cracked, or severely discolored teeth and restore them to their original appearance and functionality.
Gum contouring: The gums hold the teeth in position and make your smile appear more pleasing. The accumulation of tartar deposits near the gum line can lead to the decay of gum tissues, causing gum diseases. We treat gum diseases by removing the decayed tissues and tartar deposits, placing medication near the infected area, and replacing the extracted soft tissues using healthy ones.
Fillings: Dental fillings made from tooth-colored material - either dental-grade ceramic or composite resin, can be used to restore cavity-infected teeth. Fillings offer excellent durability, sealing, and longevity. Since they are customized to match the exact color of your teeth, you can smile with confidence and not worry about the fillings being too apparent, as they would stay under disguise.
Composite bonding: Composite tooth-colored resinous material is used to perform bonding. It is used to restore the contour of cracked, chipped, naturally misshapen, or excessively spaced teeth. In some instances, it is also used to protect the exposed root surfaces of teeth in the case of gum receding.
Crowns and bridges: Crowns are bridges are two highly sought-after dental restorations. Crowns are tooth-shaped and hollow on the inside, allowing the dentist to place them on damaged teeth and cover them fully. Bridges are used to restore missing teeth and held in place using dental crowns. Both these restorations are made from tooth-colored ceramic, allowing you to sport a beautiful and confident smile.
