What are the Different Cosmetic Dental Procedures?
- Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening happens to be the most common cosmetic dental procedure that we perform to give you a pearly white smile. Your teeth often become stained due to many reasons – smoking, poor diet, lifestyle, or any disease.
We perform this procedure and remove the accumulation of plaque, tartar, and other substances from your teeth, thus enhancing your smile. You must opt for teeth whitening twice a year to maintain your smile.
Dental veneers are thin wafer-like structures that we place on the top of our teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are recommended in case of discolored, chipped, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Porcelain dental veneers make the best choice among all as they resemble your natural teeth.
The procedure is quick, hassle-free, and very affordable. After the treatment, you are expected to follow proper dental care to maintain your veneers in the long run.
- Gum Contouring
Some people have a very gummy smile. If you are one of them and want to change it, gum contouring is a suitable procedure to consider. Under gum contouring, we change the shape of your gum, and the procedure is straightforward. We cut away excessive gum tissues that cause a gummy smile.
Sometimes, gum contouring is also performed to restore exposed teeth caused because of receding gum tissues.
- Dental Implants
Dental implants remain a sought-after option for your missing teeth. An implant acts as your tooth-root and anchors the artificial teeth like a dental crown to improve your smile's appearance. Dental implants are made using titanium.
We insert this small screw-like stud surgically into your jawbone. After the healing of your bone, it starts serving as a support for the crown. The crown is created to match your natural-looking teeth.
- Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a restorative procedure for decayed or damaged teeth above your gum line that also improves your facial appearance. Crowns are made using several materials such as ceramic, metal, ceramic fused to metal, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and others. We may also recommend this procedure if you have badly-stained teeth.
