COSMETIC DENTISTRY

Gaps between teeth are neither lucky nor in vogue. Make them disappear with absolutely natural looking. Veneers/ Crowns in no time.

Any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth and/or gums comes under Cosmetic dentistry. It comes under dental aesthetics and mainly deals with minor changes in colour, position, shape, size, and/or alignment improving the overall smile and appearance.

Cosmetic Dentistry ranges from tooth-coloured aesthetic dental fillings, direct and indirect veneers, reshaping of teeth to gum depigmentation and gingivoplasty (gum reshaping).

Tooth coloured aesthetic fillings are used to either fill minor gaps between teeth or fill decayed parts of front teeth.

Veneers are a great option for closing gaps, modifying the shape, or changing the colour of teeth to improve the appearance of your digital smile, boost your self-confidence, and help you feel better about your teeth.

They can be ‘direct’ which are made from a resin based material placed directly on the tooth or ‘indirect’ which are super thin custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth after minimal tooth reduction preferably.

Tooth reshaping or dental contouring is a convenient and low cost cosmetic dental procedure for minor tooth irregularities and imperfections, cracks or chipping. This is a fast and painless procedure involving removal of some of the tooth enamel and then re-shaping the problem tooth. This procedure cannot be performed on decayed teeth and infected/swollen gums. To be a candidate for tooth reshaping, you need to have healthy teeth and gums.

Gum depigmentation, also known as gum bleaching is used to lighten the pigmented gums or remove dark spots or patches on it with the help of lasers. In some people, there is excessive melanin deposition in the gums resulting in darker appearance of gums, if this darkening is due to habits like smoking then it can be resolved over a period of time mostly by quitting smoking but if the genetic makeup is the cause of the darkening then the use of lasers is helpful and yields uniform and long-lasting results.

Gingivoplasty is the process by which the gums are reshaped to correct deformities or enlargement and the best technique to do this is with the help of lasers resulting in a quick, comfortable, painless and an aesthetic outcome.
