A dental treatment need not necessarily have to be reparative in nature. It can be used to create beautiful smiles and enhance confidence as well. Such dental procedures are termed as cosmetic dental procedures.

Whether it’s a long-term solution or a quick-fix, your teeth deserve equal amount of attention as your face. With the advances made in dentistry, it is now possible to choose from an array of smile enhancing options. Below are a few described in brief:

  1. Teeth Whitening -

In this procedure, a gel is applied to your teeth for a specific period of time which helps to brighten your teeth’s existing colour. This can be done using a laser (which takes only 8 minutes) or can be done conventionally (which takes at least 45 minutes) The results usually last for 2 years or more depending on your dietary intake and oral hygiene measures.

  1. Teeth Shaping (Enameloplasty)-

In this procedure, the outermost layer of tooth called Enamel is altered to give it a more aesthetic appearance. It is permanent in nature and causes no damage to the tooth if done correctly and within physiological limits.

  1. Aesthetic Teeth Fillings (Dental Composite)-

For those looking for an alternative, quicker solution to veneers, aesthetic teeth fillings (dental composite) serve the same purpose. In this procedure, tooth coloured filling material is placed over the whole front surface of your front teeth and is shaped to give it a more aesthetic appearance. However, the only disadvantage being that the filling may stain and discolour over a period of time depending on your dietary intake. 

  1. Dental Veneers-

These are thin shells of porcelain that are stuck to the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain Veneers have been proven to be the longest lasting restorations in the mouth. They offer long term solutions for multiple reasons like discoloured teeth, crooked teeth, chipped teeth and to even cover spaces in between teeth.

  1. Dental Porcelain Crowns -

A dental cap or a crown is a cover that is placed over natural tooth structure to restore the tooth to its normal size, shape and function and/or alter its colour and shade. It can be used when the cavity is too large, tooth is badly shaped or worn down, after root canal to protect restored teeth or to close spaces between teeth (diastema closure). 

  1. Dental Implants-

These are titanium devices that are placed in the jaw bone to replace missing teeth. They offer a fixed permanent solution and replicate natural teeth in terms of form and function. If maintained properly can last lifelong without any hassles.

  1. Invisible Aligners-

A beautiful face and smile can be ruined by the teeth being out of alignment. No matter what your age is, it is possible to bring your teeth into a pleasing curve using aligner treatment. This permanent treatment not only brings your teeth into their ideal position making your smile more aesthetic, but it also helps you function better. This treatment is particularly helpful when the teeth are too malaligned and can’t be corrected using veneers thereby giving you the most natural result with the least amount of intervention. The best products of such therapies are Invisalign and Flash and we are proud providers of both these options.

Whether it’s your birthday or your wedding, a great smile is the best gift you could gift yourself. So, what are you waiting for? Book your consult with us and let us help you make your life better.
