Cosmetic Dentistry

Are you pleased with your smile's aesthetic? Or, do you wish to get a few aspects of your teeth corrected so that you can smile confidently? Having an attractive and well-complimented smile is a luxury everyone would like to have, as it significantly enhances one's facial appearance and confidence levels. We provide the perfect solution to such concerns through our cosmetic dental solutions.

Contouring the gums

The gums form an integral part of one's mouth. They make the smile appear more pleasing, thereby increasing one's confidence levels as well. But, when you contract any gum disease, such as gingivitis or periodontitis, they could undergo serious negative changes. The gums recede below their ideal gum line, the tissues decay, and they look quite unhealthy. The ideal way to treat this concern is by gum contouring therapy. Decayed tissues will be removed using laser therapy, and soft tissues will be taken from a healthy part of the mouth (preferably the palate) and grafted to the receded area.

Restoring damaged teeth

The teeth may sustain damage in the form of chipping, cracks, or breaking under high stresses or impact forces. Such teeth can ruin the appearance of your smile and even put your oral health at serious risk. We restore damaged teeth using teeth-colored ceramic restorations so that their appearance can be perfectly matched with that of your adjoining natural teeth. Some of the prominent ones are veneers, crowns, composite bonding, inlays, onlays, etc.

Get cavities treated at the earliest

Cavities can ruin one's oral health and aesthetics to a severe extent if left untreated for an extended period. In fact, the cavity could gradually grow and reach the deeper layers of a tooth and lead to a root canal infection or even tooth loss. Hence, we will carefully and thoroughly extract the decay, disinfect the cavity, and apply a tooth-colored filling material. We usually use white fillings, such as ceramic or composite resin, as they offer superior aesthetics. After the filling is placed, it will hardly be distinguishable from the enamel as it will be customized according to the aesthetics required.

Replacing missing teeth

We may have to perform tooth extractions due to various reasons such as severe cavities, oral infections, external trauma, root canal infection, aging, etc. This can lead to a lack of self-confidence, which also affects the functionality of the mouth. We suggest patients get their missing teeth restored at the earliest using our lifelike tooth restorations. We offer several options, such as dental bridges, implants, and dentures.

Treating teeth misalignment (malocclusion)

Malocclusion is a common oral concern and has affected millions of lives. It is caused predominantly due to heredity or disproportionate growth of the jawbone. Smiling with misaligned teeth can be embarrassing. Luckily, the misalignment of teeth can be corrected with the help of orthodontic appliances. Some of the most popular and effective ones are metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, etc.
