Types of Cosmetic Dental Works
Teeth Whitening: Stained or discolored teeth can be lightened with tooth bleach technique, either at home or at dentist. Weak hydrogen peroxide gel in a plastic tray cup of your teeth size worn on teeth for 4-5 hours daily for a week effectively whitens the teeth. High intensity light along with 35% peroxide for one hour under doctor’s supervision too whitens teeth.
Veneers: Crooked, chipped, spaced teeth can be covered by wafer thin porcelain laminated veneer bonded on to the original tooth enamel. This is a very effective treatment for front teeth correction.
Implants: Dental tooth implant made of titanium is surgically placed permanently into the jawbone of missing tooth. It is designed to act as tooth root to hold on to any artificial tooth, crown, bridge or denture.
Crowns: Badly chipped, broken or decayed tooth is capped or crowned with acrylic or porcelain fused with metal. It covers the tooth so that it can stand biting pressure without further damage.
Bonding: Mild scraping of original tooth enamel can reshape front teeth. Then tooth colored composite plastic enamel of desired shape is bonded on the original tooth. This is hardened and polished with special light to give you a winning smile.
Shaping: Enamel shaping is process of reshaping teeth with filing or removing some enamel for immediate, painless teeth correction.
Orthodontic Treatment: It is best for crooked or buck teeth and can be done on children and adults alike. Invisible lingual braces are inserted behind teeth to straighten them and also to correct bite related problems.
Dentures: Whole set of teeth worn on under lying bone can correct major tooth problems.
A skilled dentist can cosmetically change your teeth for that confidant, brilliant smile while largely preserving the original teeth.
