In the modern society these days, people are getting more and more conscious about their health and physical well-care and do not mind spending more on products which will help maintain their glowing skin and wrinkle free faces.
Looking after the teeth is just as important as diligently applying toner and moisturizer every night before sleep. However, more and more people are going beyond just making sure their teeth are strong and healthy. In fact, there is a huge majority of people who are willing to go all out and ‘beautify’ their teeth. This is known as cosmetic dentistry.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
People notice a beautiful smile. There’s no doubt that a smile is your most important social bonding gesture. Your smile is you’re total center of expression and when it dazzles you exude confidence, happiness and joy.
Today's advanced cosmetic procedure can enhance your smile to its white, straight, beautiful best. Here is what cosmetic dentistry can do for you:-
- close gap between teeth

Cosmetic dentistry covers a multitude of procedures that improves the beauty and health of your smile.
Dental Bonding and porcelain veneers.
Smiles can be altered by the use of cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers. Dentist can repair chips, close spaces, remove discolorations, change colors and reshape teeth. These procedures are done with minimal or sometimes no tooth enamel removal. Porcelain veneers are some of the most beautiful a durable restorations that dentistry has to offer.
A crown is a restoration that covers or caps a tooth to restore the normal size and shape of the tooth. Following treatment a crown gives strength to a tooth and protects a badly decayed tooth from fracture. When a crown is necessary, dentist now have the ability to fabricate an all porcelain crown for both the front and back of the mouth. The advantage of all porcelain crowns is that they provide the most beautiful, natural esthetics available. There is no metal in these crowns which give it the most natural, life like appearances.
Missing teeth are not only unattractive, but can lead to serious problems. If you are missing one or more teeth, your teeth can begin to drift out of position. In effect, this can lead to changes in your bite, loss of additional teeth, tooth decay, gum disease as migraine headaches. If you are experiencing any of these problems, you should consider dental bridgework.
Today’s dentistry has allowed us the opportunity to combine beauty as well as strength when filling teeth. This may include removing old amalgam fillings (sometimes called silver or mercury fillings) that have darkened and become ugly over time. We take pride in “restoring” teeth to as close to their original strength and but with dramatically improved appearance using composite resins and ceramics.
Composite resin bonding is used to repair fractures as well as to laminate (or cover) teeth to enhance appearance. These procedures are usually accomplished in one appointment and with little or no discomfort! We are proud to produce some of the most beautiful smiles in the country through our extensive experience.
When bleaching was introduced in the mid eighties, some dentists worried about adverse side effects. We knew, for instance, that the carbamide broke down to hydrogen peroxide and that, after months of exposure, this chemical could damage enamel.
Experience has now shown that the treatment appears to be harmless and, provided it does not go no indefinitely, the only occasional complication is mild tooth sensitivity, which can readily be corrected.
Dental implants are designed to replace natural teeth that have been lost from trauma or have been extracted. Because the implant is fixed firmly to the bone, implant offer superior strength and durability. Better yet, dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. They can also be used to support a single crown or as anchors for fixed bridges. We can also restore your existing dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
An implant is an artificial tooth root (synthetic material) that is anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place.
