Cosmetic dentistry is truly a boon to patients who seek dental treatment to enhance the aesthetics of their smile. A person’s smile that has lost its charm due to issues such as dull teeth, damaged or missing teeth, gum diseases, etc. can be restored to normal. The cosmetic dental solutions we offer are comprehensive, minimally invasive, and provide the best results that last for a long time.
Popular Cosmetic Dental Options
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most widely-preferred cosmetic dental solutions. Teeth tend to become dull due to regular wear, aging, excessive consumption of alcohol, etc. Whitening helps to remove the stains from the surface of the teeth, making them appear brighter. This way, you can flaunt your bright smile without having to worry about discolored teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are used to cover teeth that are either damaged or out of shape (chipped and misshapen teeth). They are made from tooth-colored ceramic material, which enhances their appearance as they can be made to perfectly mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Bridges are simple restorative solutions that are used to replace missing teeth. They are held in position by attaching crowns on either side of the prosthetic tooth.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are custom-fabricated to match the contour of your teeth. They are fabricated in a dental laboratory based on the mold of the tooth. We use tooth-colored ceramic material to fabricate veneers, which is why they are aesthetically pleasing and virtually undetectable. They can be used to restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or spaced too far apart.
Composite resin can be used to make changes to the shape and structure of the teeth. Composite bonding is mostly used in cases of chipped, cracked, misshapen, worn out, or excessively discolored teeth. Sometimes, they are also used to fill cavities.
Some of the other cosmetic dental options we offer are implants, dentures, inlays, onlays, fillings, oral cleaning, orthodontic aligners, etc.
