What are Cosmetic Dental Treatments?
There is an array of cosmetic dental treatments our centre can provide you, that can improve the look and feel of your smile.
Bonding is a simple dental cosmetic procedure in which a tooth colored resin is used to repair chipped or cracked teeth. Also closes the gap and alters the shape of the tooth. A composite resin when a special light is applied gets hardened is the procedure involved in it.
A veneer is a thin layer of material made up of porcelain or resin composite and is bonded onto the cracked, discolored or misshaped teeth for improving the aesthetics.
A tooth-shaped “cap” that is kept over a weak or damaged tooth to improve its shape, size, strength, or appearance is a crown. Crown can be available in metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin, or ceramic
This is a simple process of reshaping the natural tooth to improve its appearance. Crowded or uneven teeth that need small corrections may come under this procedure. Teeth whitening, veneers or bonding are often combined with enamel reshaping.
Orthodontic braces function as correcting the crooked or mal-aligned teeth to improve the health and appearance of the smile. The steady pressure applied via braces, over time moves teeth into proper positioning.
Whitening systems are many. In office whitening, home whitening, laser whitening etc. Since whitening is ideal for healthy and unrestored teeth and gums, seeking your dentist’s advice is the right decision for you.
Since amalgam fillings contain mercury, which is harmful to the health, nowadays tooth coloured composite fillings replace silver amalgam. But it is well suited for small cavities rather than larger cavities.
When the teeth appear too short or when the gum line appears excess or uneven, it is corrected by removing a minor amount of gum tissue and excess bone tissue (if needed) and contoured to show up more of the teeth.
Now you can have an artificial tooth for a lifetime. The dental implant is an artificial tooth. Its root is made up of Titanium and an abutment is attached to hold the artificial tooth in firm. The Titanium root which is screwed into the jaw bone provides a strong foundation. The attachment of an artificial tooth (crown) may be permanent or removable.
A denture is a removable dental prosthetic for missing and surrounding tissue. Complete dentures and Partial dentures are the two types of dentures. While complete dentures used for people with no teeth is left, a partial denture is used for people with some natural teeth is left
Bridges (fixed partial dentures)
A bridge replaces one or more missing tooth by placing crowns on the adjacent sides of the missing tooth area. The bridge is then cemented firmly into place..
The exposed gum roots caused by gum recession may be sensitive to hot and cold food or liquid, which make teeth look longer than the real and can result in developing cavity on the tooth root and bone loss. Gum grafting can stop gum recession by moving healthy gum tissue to the gum line. It also stops bone loss and gives improved aesthetics to the gum line.
