Cosmetic dentistry intends to enhance the appearance of one’s smile. A beautiful smile is just as important as one’s oral health, which is why an entire branch of dentistry is solely dedicated to making one’s smile look better. In addition to the aesthetic point of view, certain cosmetic procedures also strengthen the teeth and improve their functionality.
Dental crowns are widely referred to as dental caps as they are used to cover an entire tooth. They are made from tooth-colored ceramic material to mimic the appearance of the natural teeth perfectly. They can be shaped as required and made to fit precisely on the surface of a tooth. Chipped, cracked, worn out, and fractured teeth can be restored using dental crowns.
Dental bridges are the most straightforward replacement for natural teeth. They, too, are ceramic restorations that replace an extracted tooth and are held in place using dental crowns on either side.
Veneers are flat pieces of ceramic bonded to the frontal surface of teeth that need an aesthetic uplift. The dentist would fabricate them in a dental laboratory after taking a highly precise mold of the tooth.
Teeth whitening is a process of getting rid of the stains from the surface of the teeth to make them appear sparkling white.
Gum grafting is the process of extracting healthy tissues from a different part of the mouth and grafting it to the receded area. This way, the damage caused due to gum diseases can be reversed, reducing their severity.
Fillings fill cavities caused due to tooth decay. Fillings are customized to mimic the color, contour, and transparency of the natural enamel.
Composite resin can be used for bonding purposes in case of damaged, decayed, or worn out teeth. They successfully restore the biting surface of worn out teeth and the contour in the case of chipped teeth.
