Studies show that one of the first things that people notice is your smile. Cosmetic dentistry is used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of a person's smile, teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on teeth improvement in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Crowns, Bridge, Veneers, Bonding, Teeth Whitening and Enameloplasty are some of the procedures which are used in Cosmetic Dentistry.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are created out of tooth-colored ceramic and fitted to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are used mostly for Cosmetic purpose. After removing a small amount of tooth enamel, custom-made veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth. The result is a spectacular smile that can change tooth shape, color and even your outlook on life!
Veneers are conservative treatment for teeth with uneven surfaces or chipped, discolored, slightly crooked or unevenly spaced also.
It is a procedure that involves reshape, resize, realign and restore teeth to improve the overall appearance of the smile and teeth color. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are required for this procedure.
You need a crown if part of your tooth is missing or broken off and the remaining tooth structure can’t support a filling (more than 50% of the tooth structure is gone). Crowns strengthen decayed teeth, protect cracked or broken teeth, and improve the appearance of the damaged and discolored tooth. Sometimes crowns are used for correcting minor malposition of a tooth( or teeth). In full month reconstructions, crowns are used to increase and correct the face vertical dimension.
A bridge replaces missing tooth or teeth ( usually 1-3) that have healthy( or restorable) abutments (teeth adjacent to the missing teeth area or Spam). Bridge is more affordable and faster way to replace the missing teeth but, is recommended when the abutment teeth need some kind of restoration also. Implants are more recommended when the abutments are intact, virgin and need no restorations
We can mend chips, cracks an gaps by using this wonderful technique. Special composite resin materials are blended in a color which carefully chosen to match your tooth color and applies to it, then is shaped into the right shape and harden by a special light. The result is an instant, noticeable change that you are going to love it!
Tooth-colored materials (filling material) which is bonded to the tooth surface can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, or can be used to close a small gap between them. Filling material also bond to teeth.
This procedure can fix a "gummy" smile which gum is more visible than teeth during smile (more pink color than white shows) or to correct an uneven gum line by removing and reshaping excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth's crown to improve one's smile. It is also used to increase the tooth's clinical crown length for a crown retention.
Enameloplasty is a procedure which involves changing the teeth shape to improve their appearance only by modifying or removing nominal amount of the tooth's enamel and polishing it to the original luster.
With either a protective gel or a rubber shield in place to protect your gums, an American Dental Association (ADA) -approved bleaching agent is applied to the teeth, sometimes with a special light to enhance the action of the agent. Please note that whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. In some cases, we may recommend other options, like at-home whitening products, porcelain veneers or dental bonding (see definitions in Bonding ).
Based on your needs, we will select from a variety of different whitening gels. Placed in a custom-fabricated mouth guard, the gel will whiten your teeth safely when used as little as one to two hours a day for as few as two weeks. We'll choose a plan that suits your lifestyle and delivers great results.
Usually people get the results faster with in office teeth whitening because higher concentration of the whiting material is used. Whitening toothpastes may have abrasive substances that may wear away your tooth's enamel. We offer the Zoom! Whitening procedure, which is simple and painless. Sometimes, teeth sensitivity happens after the whitening and it goes away either by itself or by using application of topical Fluoride gel.
