Everyone likes to have a beautiful that would attract compliments. However, not all of us are lucky enough to naturally have the smile that we always wanted. This could be due to oral conditions such as discoloration, misshapen teeth, chipped teeth, cavities, gum diseases, etc. They can potentially affect your smile in a negative way and make you feel less confident while interacting with people.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the solution to all your smile-related issues. It is a branch of dentistry that comprises of several treatment procedures that are aimed at making a person's smile more attractive. The best part of these procedures is that some of them also make your teeth stronger by offering support to the structure, thereby improving their functionality. Here are some of the most commonly preferred cosmetic dental procedures.
Dental crowns: Crowns are known as dental caps as they entirely cover the teeth from the gum line to the top of the tooth. They are used to restore teeth that are worn out, weak, chipped, cracked, or broken. Along with restoring the aesthetics of the teeth, crowns help to strengthen them and keep them from undergoing failure.
Veneers:Veneers are made from ceramic and are bonded to the frontal surface of the teeth. They are used to bring about changes to the teeth surfaces when they are discolored, cracked, chipped, worn out, etc.
Composite bonding:Tooth-colored composite resinous material is used to bring about aesthetic changes to the teeth. The resin we use is biocompatible and readily accepted by the natural tissues of the mouth. It can be shaped to perfection to mimic the tooth structure.
Implants: Dental implants are the strongest and most reliable solution for replacing missing teeth. They are fixed directly to the jawbone, which is why they offer excellent stability. The ceramic crown fixed on an implant stud can be customized to match the exact appearance of a natural tooth.
Dental bridges: Bridges are simple alternatives to implants. They are fixed to the adjoining teeth and offer an excellent solution to missing teeth. Along with restoring one's smile, they help the patient bite and chew food like normal.
Gum contouring:The gums are just as important as the teeth when it comes to a beautiful smile. But, gum diseases can upset both oral health and aesthetics. We offer a remedy to this using our excellent treatment solutions such as laser therapy, contouring, and gum grafting.
