7 Popular Procedures Of Cosmetic Dentistry

This part of dentistry aims to create a more balanced, symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing smile.

The very popular and common cosmetic dental services include teeth whitening, dental bonding, veneers, and tooth and gum contouring.

 

  1. Teeth Whitening:

    Sometimes dark-coloured foods and drinks (like coffee, tea and berries) stain our teeth.

    Professional teeth whitening safely lighten the shade of your teeth and brighten a person’s smile.

     

  2. Dental Bonding:

    This procedure involves the application of tooth-coloured composite resin.

    In this procedure, the dentist uses this material to cover up and conceal cracks, craze lines (hairline cracks), discoloration and other cosmetic imperfections.
    Dental bonding changes the shape of a tooth to make it longer, wider or more uniform.

    It usually needs replacing every five to seven years.
    One of the advantages of this procedure is that It doesn’t require the removal of natural tooth enamel. It is completely reversible.

     

  3. Porcelain Veneers:

    Veneers are thin, strong shells that adhere to the front surfaces of the teeth.

    It conceals a wide range of cosmetic flaws, including chips, cracks and discolouration.

    There are many types of veneers available, including traditional and minimal prep. In this procedure, veneers require the removal of some amount of natural enamel. In many cases, porcelain veneers need replacing every 10 years or so.

     

  4. Gum Contouring:

    Some people are born with excess gum tissue and this makes the smile appear “gummy” or unbalanced.

    In this procedure, the dentist removes excess gum tissue and reshapes the entire gum line for a more symmetrical, balanced appearance.

     

  5. Cosmetic Dental Crowns:

    Dental crowns are also referred to as caps. It is custom-made to fit over the whole tooth.

    These crowns are mostly made up of acrylic or porcelain material.

    Crowns are used in cosmetic dentistry to treat teeth that are poorly shaped, badly decayed, broken and chipped.

    Crowns also help in large fillings or to cover spaces in between teeth.

     

  6. Tooth Bonding:

    It is a procedure in which tooth-coloured materials are adhered (bonded) to the chipped tooth.
    This is a procedure used to repair or improve the appearance of a tooth. Mainly this procedure is used in cases of badly stained, broken, or chipped teeth.

     

  7. Cosmetic Orthodontic Treatment:

    This branch aims to align the upper and lower jaw favorably to encourage speaking, chewing, and overall aesthetics. Buck teeth or crooked teeth are the ideal cases for cosmetic orthodontic dentistry.

Recovery Time After Procedure

Recovery after the procedure depends on the type of cosmetic treatment. Number of teeth that need treatment also affects recovery time.

A person going for dental bonding on one tooth can resume normal activities immediately.

On the other hand, someone who has gum contouring may need to take a day or two to recover.
