How is the treatment done?

Smile Design Treatment is a cosmetic treatment that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile through certain procedures such as dental veneers, composite bonding, teeth whitening and tooth implant. People suffering from dental problems like tooth decaying, tooth loosening, stains, and bacterial plaque usually opt for this makeover treatment. Some factors taken into consideration for this treatment include: facial appearance and skin tone, gum tissues and lips.

Some aspects that the smile design treatment encounters are: Tooth color- discolored or stained tooth may make you look aged and dull, while a well-shaped bright set of teeth leaves you with a perfect smile; Alignment and spacing- uneven broken, overlapping teeth or teeth which have gaps in between can be evenly aligned and straightened with the help of improved veneers; Missing tooth- in case of a missing or cracked tooth, the treatment provides tooth implantation which leaves you with a confident smile; Fuller lips, smile and cheeks- the treatment not only focuses on your teeth, but also makes your lips and cheek look good so that you get a perfect makeover look; Tooth proportion and smile line- in order to make your smile look flawless, the orthodontist or cosmetic surgeon would examine if your teeth are in correct proportion, or the imaginary smile line following the edges of your upper lips is in proportion with the curve of your lower lips.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Smile design treatment is specially recommended for those who suffer from various oral problems like tooth decaying, tooth loosening, bacterial plaque, weak gums etc. People often lose confidence and peace of mind because of these sufferings. The treatment procedure involves the following steps: Tooth whitening and porcelain veneers- with the help and application of certain tools, the cosmetic surgeon whitens your tooth, covers the gap between your teeth, restores broken or discolored tooth; Dental bonding- this refers to the application of high grade composite materials at the front of your teeth, and is an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers; Root canal treatment- this technique is used to clean the infection right from the root of your teeth, and is filled with sealing material; Dental bridge- this refers to the method of bridging the gaps in between your teeth where they have either been removed or have fallen.

The technologies used in the treatment are: Intentional root canal treatment- used to repair a badly decayed or infected tooth wherein the nerve and the pulp are removed in order to clean and seal the inside of the tooth; Laser gingivectomy- laser wavelengths are used to carefully cut gingiva for cosmetic periodontal indications; Laser gum depigmentation- people often encounter gum bleeding or dark patches on the gum caused by melanin. This technology removes or lightens the dark patches and leaves you with healthy, pink gums; 3M essential crowns- this all-ceramic metal free Zirconia crowns and bridges is strongly recommended by doctors because it not only helps in high quality restoration but also strengthens your teeth.

Digital Smile Design - Know Benefits Of It!

When you think of what strikes you first about anybody, majority of people would say the smile. There is nothing more endearing than a warm, friendly smile. When you think more about it, the smile has a huge emotional component to it.  This is in addition to the esthetic and artistic value that a smile carries.  There are some people who are renowned for their smiles, which is said to be so bright, which led to the term '1000-watt smile', good enough to light up a big room!

Dentistry has evolved over the last few decades to play a major role in a person's appearance. From the shape and size of the teeth to the contour of the jaws and lips to the angle of the smile, there is something dentists can help with.  There are specific proportions that are believed to produce a perfect smile, width of the eyes, distance between the eyes, width of the mouth, etc. With more and people realizing that their smiles can be improved, the demand for these is also increasing.

The new development in improving smile is the Digital Smile Design (DSD) that was developed by a ceramician (technician involved in making ceramic crowns) in Brazil in 2007, Mr. Christian Coachman. This basically involves taking a series of digital photographs and videos of the patient. These are then transferred to the computer and analyzed for the various proportions mentioned above.  These images are then manipulated to achieve the correct proportions and reproduce a smile with the correct dimensions. To be doubly sure, these images are also shared with a larger group of dentists and then approval sought. 

Detailed discussions are held with the patient on how this will reflect once the change is done. Once changes suggested by the dentist are accepted by the patient and incorporated, then the patient's smile is reconstructed using the calculated analysis and post that the smile correction is done.  A successful digital smile design is a great example of teamwork as multidisciplinary teams from dentistry are involved.
The result is an enhanced smile that improves the patient's perception of beauty and also improves their confidence levels and feelings of self-worth and self-esteem. It is to be noted that what a person wants to express with his smile can be taken into account when designing a smile.

The major advantage of DSD is that there is no need for any special equipment and the digital equipment that is part of most dental setups is sufficient to design a smile. Smile designing is only poised to grow more popular in the coming years, with the greater focus on appearance and beauty.

Beautiful Sparkling Smile
Hi friends!

This is Dr. Premendra Goyal. I m a dentist from Mumbai.

We Look forward to beautiful smiles and any difference in color or any darkness in color of your teeth, they bother you. We all look forward to have a white sparkling smile. Now today, to have this smile is pretty easy. We are worried about yellow teeth. Why do our teeth turn yellow? That is the biggest thing to understand first. The color of your teeth may change because of staining of your teeth, which may happen because of sudden food habits, tobacco use, excess of tea, coffees, colas. These stains can be easily removed by a simple cleaning up procedure of your teeth, wherein your dentist clean up the surface of your teeth and polish them giving you a sparkling smile. Many at times, you have situation wherein your teeth are yellow from inside. Now today, they re not difficult to clean, you ve whitening procedures. You can just get your teeth bleached professionally, which is a combination of a office bleach, wherein your dentist bleaches in the chair and maybe follow it up with some home bleaching program. Properly done, these treatments can give you good lasting results for years together. You may end up having good white teeth for five to six years at a stretch. In some cases you may have difficult stains which happen because of fluoride. These are termed as fluorosis. In very rare cases, you may need to hide those stains, which again is very simple using dental veneers or some bonding procedures, wherein some tooth colored material is placed on top of your tooth to hide those stains. So, please don t get depressed having dark teeth, you still can have a white sparkling smile anytime you want.

Know More About Braces
Hello, I am Dr. Deepak Singh.

Hello, I am Dr. Divya Swarup.

We are practicing orthodontics at Braces and Roots. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry which deals with the treatment and correction of mal right teeth and jaws. Today let s talk about braces treatment or in simple words the procedure to correct irregularly positioned teeth in the mouth. The only natural process to correct malpositioned teeth is through Orthodontic Therapy that is braces. There are various other options as well but they will certainly compromise the natural tooth structure integrity to some extent always. So if we say teeth are irregularly placed that is various malalignments, which causes major issues.

Firstly, it becomes unaesthetic, not very pleasant to look at. The aesthetic concern is very important as it raises the overall confidence of a person. Having a pleasing and confident smile is very necessary from psychological point of view. To talk, smile and laugh without being overtly concern about one s teeth and their appearance is very necessary. Peer pressure in today s world may otherwise lead to depression, feeling of neglect and unwantedness. Unaesthetic and pleasing smile is the simplest solution to avoid psychological concerns.

Secondly and the more important issue is the function that is when teeth are malaligned and not properly positioned, they prevent proper cleaning to be done which leads to the secondary damage to the gingival, inflammation causing loss of perinatal attachments and finally bone loose leading to untimely tooth loss. Another problem in tooth function due to malocclusion is deferment of a deep bite that is, when the lower teeth are completely covered by the upper teeth, in such cases the lower teeth starts hitting against the upper teeth causing perinatal damage leading to early tooth mobility being developed. When the lower teeth hit against the upper teeth the incisal edges that is the upper edges of the lower teeth becomes attrited and sensitivity in teeth develops. Attrition of the lower teeth leads to the loss of proper bite and causes the collapse bite in the posterior region leading to various other complications one of them being TMDs that is Temporomandibular Disturbances. The lower teeth even start touching the palate of face causing trauma to the palate leading to bleeding from the parietal surface. So if we see just a simple thing like malalignment of teeth can lead to various complicated problems.

Now let s see the various options in these braces treatments. Traditional braces are metallic braces. These come in various sizes, shapes. The smaller the size, the smoother the bracket design, the more comfortable it is for the patient. Metallic braces are very common. Next options are tooth-colored braces or ceramic braces. These are again of two types. One being disliked translucent one which is polycrystalline and second is the totally transparent braces that are monocrystalline. So the aesthetic concern of the patient is taken care of when ceramic braces are chosen.

Metallic braces in comparison are not as aesthetic and as pleasing to look at. With ceramic braces, the wires that are used are also tooth colored. Hence the aesthetic concern being taken care of. The next option for braces is Lingual Braces. Lingual Braces are the braces that are placed on the inner aspect of the tooth that is on the lingual surface. Again these braces are not visible while talking while smiling and hence they are practically invisible.

Next, there are Self-Ligating Brackets. In this, the wire is engaged directly in the braces without the help of an elastic module or ligature wire which generally holds the bracket or the wire inside the bracket. This wire component might cause slight discomfort to the patient which is not included in the self-ligating brackets. The time duration per appointment also decreases in self-ligating braces. The last option being invisible option for Orthodontic treatment is the aligners. These are the most prevalent today. These are thin transparent plastic-like materials which is worn over the tooth. This aligner therapy is the most aesthetic option today. Finally, if we see, all these treatment options will help us in achieving the ideal occlusion and a perfect smile.

Orthodontics braces are the perfect treatment modality for achieving the desired smile and occlusion. Orthodontic treatment as earlier thought is not just limited to the growing children or the young age group. Adult orthodontic is very common and highly successful today. So whenever you decide and whatever age it is, it s never too late. Hoping to create a beautiful smile for you and your family members. Visit us at our clinics soon, at Braces and Roots and Smile Square.

Thank you.

Dental Phobia
How do Advance Technologies Help Manage Dental Phobia?


Hi, this is Dr. Amit Chavan from Smile Again Dental Clinic. Myself a periodontist and implantologist. My core areas are gum surgeries, flap surgeries, implants and laser dentistry. I have an experience of about more than 7 years and have been practicing from Smile Again for more than 5 years now. Our dream of having this practice was to have everything under one roof basically to have the cutting edge technology that includes dental laser, OPG machine, VistaScan which is the low emission radiation under one roof so that the patient doesn t have to go anywhere outside. That was the idea, and that is what we have been implementing. Our main vision for this practice was to get the dental phobia out of the patients.

Basically, whenever a dental patient walks into the dental practice, he has the fear of unknown. So, basically we have made sure that we remove that fear present with the best cutting edge technology and the best specialist dentist that is associated with us. Basically, when the patient comes to our clinic, the first thing that he will be greeted with a very warm and welcome smile from our receptionist and the staff is present. The waiting area is specifically decorated to provide relaxing oasis of calm and tranquility to create an environment where dentistry is the last thing on your mind. We are keen to make an environment that is more than welcoming for the patients.

Smile Again is spread across 1500 sqft and with four separate operatory chambers ensuring complete privacy and absolute comfort to each patient. The first cubicle is for diagnosis where you will be meeting with the dentist and this will be the one which is designed exclusively to create a relaxing environment. This is where we do the initial diagnosis keeping in mind the chief complaint of the patient and we discuss the different types of options that are available to the patient according to his need and the required treatment. In the second operatory, the basic treatment is carried out such as filling, scaling, and the root canals that is what is carried out.

Then comes the third operatory where in which only the cosmetic procedure carried with the consultation given to the patient and explaining him what are his aesthetic demands and accordingly doing the treatments. Operatory 4 is basically is a exclusive surgical unit where minor surgical procedures and dental implants are placed and this is basically done so that no cross contamination of infection is done. We have a dedicated centre where we conduct courses for newly passed out doctors and we are also in touch with the latest advancements that are present in the dentistry.
