Smile Designing

There is always the constant attempt to look better and more appealing. To this effect, smile designing is one particular specialty of cosmetic dentistry with the sole aim of improving a person's smile.
Photographs of various angles, jaw tracing analysis, and simulation of images on the computer are all used to arrive at an optimal size, shape, contour of the jaw and the teeth that can produce the best smile for a given patient. These changes are then replicated on paper and tooth models if required and detailed discussion happen with the patient. Thorough patient counseling is done before initiating work at smile designing.

Some parameters that are manipulated to produce a good smile designing are as follows - first the tooth per se followed by the soft tissues.

Tooth color: in most cases, the tooth color is changed using tooth whitening material or laser. Trust the dentist to achieve a balance between whiteness of the tooth and natural look. In some cases, silver amalgam fillings may be replaced with composite restorations to improve the appearance. Bridges with metal backup may be replaced with complete ceramic crowns too.

Tooth alignment: crooked or misshaped teeth can be corrected using veneers in minor cases and by orthodontic braces in severe cases. Again, if the patient is very conscious, aesthetic ceramic braces can be used.

Tooth length: if too much or too less of a tooth is showing during a smile, that needs to be corrected too. Longer teeth are considered to produce a younger appearance than short teeth, which usually is associated with old age and wear and tear. The gums can be reshaped as a part of crown lengthening.
Missing teeth: teeth that are missing produce a very bad smile and need to be replaced at the earliest for a better smile. Depending on various factors including age and bone health, the choice could be a crown or a bridge or an implant.

Tooth ratio: when a person smiles, the front tooth are the most obvious and should have a ratio of length to width as 4 to 5. This produces a balanced smile.

Tooth texture: mottling or rough edges on the tooth surface can be corrected by veneers or small composite restorations.

As regards the soft tissues,

Gum line: the smile is reproduced on tracing and corrections are made to produce a better smile, even if it requires gum corrections.

Fuller lips and cheeks: surgical procedures or chemicals may be used to produce fuller lips and cheeks that improve a person's smile.

The next time you are not happy with your smile, visit a dentist. With so many parameters that affect your smile, a little correction could produce a better smile!

Your son is a 12 year old, but the permanent teeth which are erupting in his mouth are of the size of a fully grown adult, this is absolutely normal. The size will get matched as he grows up. If the teeth are not in a proper order or crooked in nature, please consider consulting an orthodontist, or a child specialist dentist.

Crowns for sensitivity? I dnt think so. 1st the reason for sensitivity should be diagnosed and then they can b treated with conservative methods like filling.

You can go with orthodontic treatment to get your teeth aligned. This is done using braces. There are two types- metal and ceramic braces. If you r concerned about aesthetics you can opt for the second one that is ceramic or invisible braces.

Dear Lybrate user, neglected cavities will lead to multiple broken or missing teeth. Visit your local dentist to get these checked and avail the suitable treatment. Deep cavities can be root canal treated and other small cavities can be filled.

Dear lybrate-user your problem is discoloration or yellow tinge on teeth and you want to make it white and you have tried many ingredients also ---no relief you can use --take a cut lemon piece soak with soda bi carbonate and rub on teeth for two minutes and than wash properly, do this once in a week. Visit a dental surgeon for checkup and see if bleaching can solve your problem use colgate whitening paste and do regular mouthwash to maintain oral health.

Hi, most of the time wisdom tooth errupt late in the mouth and have no place to errupt straight. In such scenario it troubles repeatedly because of which it has to be removed. You need to visit dentist to get a checkup and x-ray done after which he can give you a exact solution of your problem. Without checking you clinically we can't suggest you anything. Regards

Indications for Root Canal Treatment

Diploma In Cosmetic Dentistry, Advanced Aesthetics, BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
Having your dentist say to you that you need a root canal, can be a daunting affair. This means that the pulp or soft tissue inside a tooth has been damaged by bacterial infection. A root canal involves removing the damaged pulp, cleaning the infection and filling in the emptied space. Not every tooth infection requires a root canal and hence it is essential to know the indication of a root canal. Here are a few situations when a root canal may be needed.

Pain
Discomfort ranging from a dull ache to a sharp pain can be a sign that you need root canal treatment. This type of pain is usually characterized by throbbing and may change as you switch positions. It is usually triggered by chewing, applying pressure on the tooth or eating something cold or hot. In some cases, the patient may not be able to indicate the exact tooth that is hurting but can only identify the painful area.

Gun tenderness
Swelling that indicates the need of root canal treatment can range from being slightly red and inflamed to pronounced lumps on the gums. In some extreme cases, this swelling may extend out of the gums into the face and neck region. Sometimes, a pus filled boil with a pimple like head may also form on the gums. If this head bursts, the patient may notice a foul taste in the mouth. This swelling can come and go as the tooth decay deteriorates and may or may not be accompanied by pain. Teeth may also feel like they have been pushed out of their sockets and are taller than usual.

Tooth discolouration
Discolouring of teeth can be a sign of internal tooth damage. This is especially noted if the teeth take on a dark yellow, grey or blackish tint. Tooth discolouration is fairly common in cases where the tooth has undergone trauma such as an accident etc.

Exposure of the dental nerves
At times during regular dental work, the nerves in the tooth may be exposed. This indicates an exposure of pulp tissue and can trigger pulp degeneration if left untreated.

However, all of the above symptoms can be symptoms of other types of dental problems as well and do not necessarily individually indicate the need for a root canal. Only a dentist can properly diagnose a need for root canal treatment after a physical examination and testing.

Get rid of whatever irritants or behaviors are causing the condition. Some of the things you might have to do include stopping certain habits, such as biting your cheeks or being overly aggressive in your oral hygiene. Make adjustments or changes to your orthodontic appliances (braces). It might also be necessary to repair or remove uneven teeth. Since some of the reasons for cheek biting might relate to emotional or psychological issues, you may also be advised to schedule an appointment with a counselor or psychiatrist to try to deal with the underlying issues behind the cheek biting. After this, you can follow up with your dentist to confirm whether the condition has improved.
