The growing need for cosmetic dentistry treatment
Decades ago, dental care simply focused on restoring/restructuring soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity and removing dental decay. There was nothing dentists did to improve the esthetics of teeth back then. The advancement in dental technology and restorative care paved ways for beautifying teeth gums and lips. Dentists today consider aesthetics when performing every dental procedure. The change in lifestyle has made people more self-conscious. This has raised the need for cosmetic dentistry treatment. Smile makeover processes that are performed today can bring about a number of changes.Following are some of the teeth errors that are treated by cosmetic dentistry treatment.
- Discolored teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Short teeth
Cosmetic dentistry consultation and treatment
A smile makeover is an art that combines the science of dentistry with the skills of the dentist. It requires the active participation of the patient in the planning stage. During the consultation, patients can express their concerns and let our dentist know what changes they expect from the treatment. We perform a thorough oral examination to check for dental infection. Our dentist takes steps to cure the same if found during the course of treatment. A treatment plan is framed based on the needs of patients. It may be a single procedure or a combination of multiple procedures to meet the needs. Images and X-rays of teeth may be taken before starting the treatment. On approval of patients, the smile makeover process starts off.
Dental veneers: These are thin shells made of porcelain. They are designed to reshape front teeth. Dental veneers are most widely used by cosmetic dentists to bring about dramatic changes in the smile.
Teeth whitening: Tooth whitening is a process of clearing stain from teeth surface and brightening teeth. The process is very effective in bringing quick changes in the smile. It is one of the most affordable and widely preferred dental procedures.
Invisalign: Invisalign® is a tray of clear aligners that are designed to move misaligned teeth. They are a cosmetic alternative to thick dental braces. Invisalign® system can improve alignment and beautify the smile.
Tooth bonding: Bonding material can reshape natural teeth. A number of teeth errors can be treated using dental bonding. It helps rebuild chipped teeth, misshapen teeth and fill gaps between teeth. Tooth bonding has less life when compared to dental veneers. The procedure takes just a single visit.
Tooth colored fillings: Tooth colored fillings are dental materials that fill cavities to restore damaged/decayed tooth. They are a cosmetic alternative to amalgam and metal fillings. Tooth colored fillings support functions of teeth and improve their aesthetics.
