A smile design is a collective treatment that is composed of several cosmetic dental procedures. The main intention behind a smile design is to treat your oral issues and give you a smile that you have always dreamt of having. Patients who have evaded oral consultations for several years and have many oral concerns that need immediate treatment will be perfect candidates for smile design.
What are the procedures offered?
Porcelain veneers:Veneers are the simplest tooth restorations used for cosmetic dental purposes. We use them to treat cracked, chipped, discolored, and excessively spaced teeth. Their thin structure makes them easy to bond to the teeth, and their longevity makes them worthy and highly-sought-after
Teeth whitening:Teeth whitening is used to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. We use a whitening gel that contains hydrogen peroxide, a chemical agent prominently used in teeth whitening products. We also offer take-home whitening kits, and laser teeth whitening options for patients who run on tight schedules.
Metal-free fillings:Fillings are used to fill cavities, reshape chipped or misshapen teeth, cover surface imperfections such as chipping, cracks, and occlusal grooves, etc. We only use metal-free fillings so that they remain undetectable and blend in with the color of the natural enamel.
Composite bonding:Bonding is the procedure of applying a composite resin on the teeth, shaping it accordingly, and hardening it using a curing light. This way, teeth that are chipped, naturally misshapen, or decayed can be restored.
Crowns and bridges:Crowns are cap-like oral restorations that are used to hold a cracked or broken tooth intact. Also, dentists place a crown on weak or worn out tooth to support them structurally. Bridges are prosthetic teeth that are used to replace missing natural teeth. They are made from tooth-colored ceramic and hence, blend in with the other teeth.
Inlays & Onlays: If you have a large cavity caused due to tooth decay, it may not be possible to restore it using filling material. Hence, we use restorations called inlays. They are made from tooth-colored ceramic and can be customized according to the contour of the cavity. Onlays are used to restore worn-out and chipped teeth. They effectively restore the cusp of the tooth and enable the patient to bite and chew food.
Implants:Dental implants are the best and most sought-after solutions to replace missing teeth. They are made from a combination of a metal stud and a ceramic crown and are inserted into the jawbone. They are long-lasting restorations that look and feel like natural teeth.
