Cosmetic and Aesthetic Dentistry

Aesthetic or Cosmetic Dentistry is the answer to peoples ambition to look beautiful. And lot of advancement has taken place in last 25 years.

It covers a broad range of dental services. Orthodontics and Porcelain Crowns/Bridges are considered as the traditional ways of smile enhancement simply because they have been in use the longest.

Before aesthetic procedures begin, complete check-up should be done, treatment planned and then thorough cleaning is done.

Bleaching living teeth has become enormously popular and successful. With bleaching, you can have whiter teeth in just 2-3 weeks. All it takes is wearing a custom-made tray with the bleaching gel for about two hours per day or overnight while you sleep

Bonding is a restorative procedure performed to repair a damaged tooth that is either worn, chipped, decayed or discolored. After removing the damaged area, we "bond" or attach a tooth colored material called composite resin onto the tooth. Bonding is also an effective way to close a small space or gap between two teeth.

Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain, the same material used to make tooth-colored crowns or caps, which once cemented to the tooth, act and appear like normal, natural tooth structure. These restorations need little or no tooth structure removal for attachment and are extremely pleasing aesthetically.

Gum contouring is another conservative procedure which can make a significant contribution to the enhancement of a smile.Bone material grafting in deficient places in the mouth enhances the appearance of the gums and improves the emergence profile of the tooth. For a chin that is less than perfect, implanted fillers can be placed to augment deficiencies.

Enamel shaping is a process of contouring natural teeth to improve their overall appearance. When teeth are slightly crowded or uneven, or when teeth appear too long, enamel shaping may be used to correct the flaw. This process cannot solve all problems, however. Crowded teeth may need braces. Enamel shaping, which is often combined with bonding, is usually quick and painless. No anesthesia is needed when shaping the enamel, and the results can be seen immediately. It should be approached with caution, however, because enamel cannot be replaced.
