Dentistry is a very wide branch of medicine, and cosmetic dentistry is one such division of this emerging field. Dentistry deals with the complexities of the teeth and works to relieve any functional issues. While cosmetic dentistry particularly focuses on improving the aesthetic appeal of teeth.
It seems like a wild idea that people who naturally have bad teeth can also get a perfect set of teeth. But the advancements in dental treatments and technologies and the use of more intricate and detailed procedures have enabled physicians to make their teeth look the way they would like them to. A number of dental procedures can be adopted by cosmetic dentists that enhance the appearance of one’s teeth and smile.
This dental procedure has been sought by many well known celebrities to completely alter and enhance the appearance of their teeth. Veneers work to hide many flaws of teeth at once. People with misshaped, misaligned, crooked and discoloured teeth can all be relieved through veneers.
How do they work?
Veneers are a popular form of treatment because their procedure is relatively simple and minimally invasive. A wafer this sheet of porcelain is placed over the damaged tooth, which has already been prepped for the placement. The veneer is bonded over the tooth with resin to make it firmly attached.
To understand how they work the simple way, consider that a clear and perfect sheet of tooth like material is placed over the tooth which hides all the apparent flaws and leaves behind a perfect tooth. That will have the same shade of colour as the remaining teeth making it very natural-looking.
Dental Face Lifts
Cosmetic dentists often explain that an attractive smile is not only composed of perfect teeth but also has a lot to do with the surrounding muscles and tissues of the facial region.
Dental face lifts involve the complete reconstruction of a smile. By removing all of the old fillings, crowns and decays, and then the teeth are cleaned and the missing teeth are replaced with natural looking dental implants. If needed veneers and crowns are also placed to hide any faults of the teeth
The complete dental face lift procedure performed on patients allows them to enhance their overall facial appearance that makes their smile look much more natural looking, by diminishing any faults and signs of aging in their teeth.
Teeth Whitening and Bleaching
Ever wonder how our teeth are affected by the constant exposure by the food and drinks we intake?
All of us love drinking teas, coffees and soda’s throughout the day but the sugar and caffeine content in them greatly damages the appearance of our teeth. Their outer enamel layer becomes discoloured over time by this exposure and teeth appear stained.
Bleaching is a chemical process that removes these stains. While other teeth whitening procedures may be more advanced using lasers and light activated technologies to make sure that all the teeth are whitened evenly, last for a long time and in no way damage the teeth’s structure.
