What is Smile Designing ???
Smile Designing is a cosmetic dental procedure that focuses on enhancing the beauty of patient's smile by correcting teeth imperfections and restoring dental health and appearence.
A good smile not just adds to facial esthetics but also boosts self confidence .
Treatments Under Smile Design
Treatments under smile design depend upon the desires and demands of patient as well as the assessment of the doctor.These can include either one or multiple sets of treatments.
Teeth Whitening/Teeth Bleaching
Gum Contouring & Reshaping
Orthodontic Treatments ( Metal & Ceramic Braces, Clear Aligners)
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Professional teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is done at dentist's office to achieve whiter and brighter teeth. Certain precautions are advised for 24 hours to retain the whitening effect achieved through teeth whitening.
Porcelain veneers are wafer thin, custom made shells of tooth coloured materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearence. These shells are bonded to the front of teeth changing their colour, shape , size or length.
Gum Depigmentation is a procedure used in cosmetic dentistry to lighten or remove black spots or patches on the gums consisting of melanin. Laser gum depigmentation vaporises and removes a thin top layer of the gum tissue, destroying the cells that produce melanin. As new tissue is created during healing, it tends to be pink rather than brown. The treatment is done under local anesthesia.
Gum Contouring is a procedure that reshapes gumline. The process of gum contouring involves cutting away or removing excess gum tissue around teeth.
Dental Implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with titanium screw like posts that replaces missing teeth and osseointegrates with the jaw bone. It simulates natural teeth function wise and look wise. After 3 months of implant surgery when the osseointegration has taken place, crown attachment is done.
Orthodontic treatments are done through metal braces, ceramic braces and clear aligners to fix malaligned, crowded or protruded teeth.
Esthetic restorations are done to restore function of a tooth and at the same time , create an esthetically pleasing smile for the patients through tooth coloured restorative materials.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
If there are missing teeth in a patient's mouth and they do not go for implants because of affordability or compromised bone dimensions then dental crowns and bridges are the best options to restore missing teeth.
