These days, your appearance depends less on your genes and more on your choice. Your smile can be worked upon to shape it the way you want.
Healthy teeth and gums ensure fresh breath, which in turn not only boosts our self-confidence but also allow us to eat anything we want comfortably. In addition to that, we also need to have the perfect smile, which makes us more attractive and friendly.
Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way to cater to all of these requirements. Using the latest computer imaging technology, it is possible to preview the probable results of cosmetic dentistry treatments, so that you can choose your ideal smile. Furthermore, you can discuss the components that you don’t like in your smile. Also, you can learn about the available options and get an accurate quote for the particular treatment.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular and affordable solutions for a better smile. Teeth bleaching is possible both in-chair at your dentist’s office and at home using home kits. A range of whitening products, like whitening toothpaste, white strips and rinses is available over the counter at various retail outlets.
These are custom-made wafer-thin shells, cut out from tooth-coloured resin or porcelain. About half mm of the teeth enamel is scraped off before the shells are bonded with the front surface of your teeth using dental cement. As a result, your teeth undergo a drastic improvement in their overall appearance including shape, colour, size and length.
This is a reliable cosmetic alternate to silver and amalgam fillings for the teeth. A putty-like resin, identical to the colour of your tooth is made from long-lasting plastic. It is then applied to the tooth’s surface. Then it is hardened with UV or laser to bond with the tooth. Your cosmetic dentist trims, shapes and polishes it to give a natural finishing. This is also an excellent way to provide aesthetic uplift to your cracked, chipped, decayed or misshapen teeth.
A crown is popularly known as a cap, as it fits over a decayed tooth. It also replaces a tooth that is damaged above the gum line. In short, a dental crown restores the size, shape, appearance and even the strength of a damaged tooth to a great extent. Crowns are known to retain a weak tooth or hold a cracked tooth together. The option can also provide cosmetic cover-up to a misshapen or badly discoloured tooth. A dental cap or crown is made from various materials including resin, ceramic and porcelain fused to metals.
These are also known as indirect filling and can be made from varieties of substances, including gold, porcelain and composite material. They’re an excellent option to fill damaged or decayed teeth. Unlike dental fillings, inlays and onlays are prepared in dental labs. Your dentist only bonds them in place. When the filling is bonded with the centre of the tooth – it is an inlay. When it covers the entire biting surface of a tooth, it is called an Onlay. They are a reliable alternate to dental crowns and prove helpful in retaining healthy teeth.
These are basically titanium posts that are surgically drilled into the empty socket of your missing tooth. An implant post is the replacement of the roots of a missing tooth. The biocompatible metal gradually fuses with your jawbone and the surrounding tissues to offer an ideal foundation for the replacement tooth. Unlike other conventional alternatives to teeth loss, implants cater to both aesthetic and functional aspects of the missing tooth and can easily last nearly a lifetime.
