Cosmetic dentistry primarily involves improving a person's smile and facial appearance. It could involve the teeth, gums, cheeks, lips, or the bite of the patient. Accordingly, a change can be produced in the color, position, size or shape of the teeth, alignment of the teeth, contouring of the smile, etc. The end result is always a better facial appearance and improved confidence level of the patient.

Some common examples of cosmetic dentistry include:

  • Teeth whitening: There are very few people who are happy with the color of their teeth. Everybody wants whiter teeth and therefore go for options like bleaching. This can be done either in the dental office or done at home. A word of caution though - go for teeth whitening only after the consultation with a dentist.
  • Veneers, crowns: Just as the color of the teeth, the shape of the teeth also leaves a lot to be desired for almost everybody. Veneers are applied on the teeth after removing a thin layer of tooth structure. Minor reshaping and contouring of the tooth can also be done, especially to improve appearance in the front teeth.
  • Tooth contouring/shaping: The edges of the teeth can be smoothened by mere shaping or contouring. There is no extra material that is added to the tooth here. In some cases, a thin layer of resin may be bonded to the tooth if required.
  • Bridges: In cases the adjacent teeth shape, size, or color mismatch, then bridges can be done to even out the difference and produce a more corrected appearance.
  • Braces: Braces are a big hit as they help correct misaligned teeth. However, the next step with invisible braces and ceramic braces is another step towards moving away from the traditional metal braces, which itself was not cosmetically received.
  • Onlays and Inlays: Improper tooth shapes can be corrected with parts of the teeth that either replace only a small decayed portion or the entire crown portion to produce a more pleasing effect.
  • Implants: Though fixed bridges do a very good job at replacing lost teeth, implants go to the next level in terms of the aesthetic replacement.
  • Gingivoplasty: In cases where the gums have black spots, are too short, or are too long, the gums can be shaped to provide a better teeth visibility. The gums can also be sculpted to produce a more appealing gum line that shows off the teeth to give a more harmonious smile.
  • Bite correction: In addition to braces, in some cases, bite correction may be required to smoothen out a sharp cusp or reduce the prominence of the canine.

With a number of corrections possible, cosmetic dentistry is here to stay - just as the drive to look good.

What You Need To Know About Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures?

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are non-invasive procedures that make the skin look smoother and unblemished. These include dental cosmetic procedures as well, which are carried out to make your teeth look whiter and properly aligned.

Since surgical procedures are complicated with certain risk factors involved, they may not always be the preferred choice. This is when non-surgical procedures come in. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures can reduce wrinkles, alter the appearance of the lips, remove blemishes, moles and thread veins and even smooth the surface of the skin.

What are the types of non-surgical treatments you can opt for?

There are several types of non-surgical treatments. The commonly-used ones include:

Muscle paralysis by injecting botox into the muscles

Botox or botunilaum toxin type a is treatment used for removing skin blemishes. It is injected into a particular part of the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that usually appear at middle age. It is very popular as people consider it as an effective and relatively safer procedure compared to other invasive procedures.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injections that are used to fill in wrinkles and creases on the skin surface. They also play a part in increasing the volume and size of the lips.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are specifically designed liquids that remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and accelerate the growth of new cells. They improve the general appearance of the skin, reduce uneven pigmentation and eliminate acne. There are three types of chemical peels - superficial, medium and deep.

Non-surgical laser treatments

These forms of treatment are usually used to remove unwanted hair on the face and body, and to remove tattoos from the skin surface. In laser hair removal treatment, a laser beam is used to heat the small cavities in the skin from which the hair grow out. This process damages the follicles and reduces the growth of hair.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a procedure in which fine crystals and vacuum are used to remove dead cells from the skin surface. It successfully eliminates wrinkles and skin blemishes.

What are the risks?

Non-surgical procedures are less harmful than surgical procedures. However, over correction can be difficult to treat, as well as asymmetrical placement of fillers and allergic reactions to the procedures. You should discuss the allergies and other potential complications of the procedure with the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.

It’s probably time to schedule an appointment with a Cosmetic Dentist to help you reach your smile goals with minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to dramatically improve your confidence and quality of life.

E-Max Veneers

GAME for a QUICK FIX to several cosmetic flaws in your smile- PORCELAIN VENEERS!   E-max veneers are thin, lightweight shells of dental ceramic that almost resemble a fingernail or lens capable of altering shape, size, length and color of teeth. They cover the front surfaces of your teeth after minimal tooth preparation for a complete smile transformation. The best advantage of Porcelain Veneers is that they are slightly translucent and realistically blend with adjacent natural tooth’s color. They are long lasting and are stain-resistant.

Convenient Teeth Straightening

Has a crooked smile always kept you from giving a genuine hearty smile in photos? If Straightening your teeth has always been something on your to-do list, but the thought of braces turned you off, opt for Clear Aligners. Here are some of the benefits you would experience with this straightening technique:

  • Perfect solution for Professionals and teens to avoid hassle and embarrassment of traditional braces.

  • Utilizing 3D imaging technology, Custom fitting aligners are made for each case accurately
  • The aligners are practically invisible with no interference with speech.
  • The aligners are removable creating no restrictions on diet and freedom to take them out for special occasions.
  • Frequency of dental visits is reduced though aligners should be worn for up to 20 hours a day for best results.

Teeth Whitening

TEETH WHITENING resonates with: Confidence Booster, Better Oral Hygiene Practices and Youthful Appearance. Unfortunately, teeth discolor with age despite diligently taking care of them. The quest for a brighter smile can be safely satiated by in-office and at-home professional teeth whitening with Pola Office Plus and Zoom Whitening.

Implants

Missing teeth are extremely common owing to gum disease, tooth decay and injury and pose a functional and esthetic hazard. Having a gap in your mouth can make you self-conscious and hesitant to smile. The adjacent teeth will also start shifting towards the empty space impairing the bite on the affected side. Implants (biocompatible titanium screws) are the best alternatives to replace natural teeth as the neighboring teeth remain unaffected. Unlike dentures or bridgework, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Under local anesthesia, the dentist will surgically insert a titanium post into your jawbone below the gum line as a substitution for the tooth root. The crown over it may be placed immediately or after 3-6 months to enable the fusion of implant to surround bone.

Let dental anxiety take a backseat and take the Leap forward for your dream smile.

Smile Designing And Cosmetic Dentistry!

COSMETIC DENTISTRY:- The aims of cosmetic dentistry is to create a beautiful and natural look.
Cosmetic bonding or composite veneers-If the gap between the two teeth is very small, closing the gap with composite bonding provides a quick solution to the problem. Bonding or veneers provides a minimally invasive solution to closing the gap.

gap closure
Gaps due to missing teeth-If the gap is due to a missing tooth, veneers or orthodontic treatment would be inappropriate. The missing tooth needs to be replaced, both for aesthetic and functional reasons – a restoration would prevent the teeth on either side of the gap from “shifting” towards the gap. Solutions to replace a gap due to missing teeth could be a partial denture, a dental bridge or a dental implant.

VENEERS

veneers2

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.

What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?

Veneers are routinely used to fix:

  • Teeth that are discolored — either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth.
  • Teeth that are worn down.
  • Teeth that are chipped or broken.
  • Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them).
  • Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth).
