Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

Thanks to a growing demand among people to look good and feel confident, Cosmetic or Aesthetic Dentistry is now more popular than ever. From teeth whitening and dental implants to cosmetic contouring, cosmetic dentists can do just about anything to give you that perfect smile.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic Dentistry refers a variety of procedures undertaken to improve your smile value. This includes reshaping the teeth, bleaching, bonding, veneers, contouring, and even tooth jewelry.

What are some of the common cosmetic dental procedures?

Some of the common cosmetic dental procedures include:

Tooth whitening:

From whitening strips and trays to in-office treatment options, tooth whitening is a very popular procedure. Medications, accidents, lifestyle habits like smoking, drinking wine and coffee, often cause discoloration. Sometimes discoloration is also hereditary. Tooth whitening can be done at home or at the dentist’s office. This involves creating a customized whitening tray on which the solution is applied to get the right color shade.


Chipped and broken teeth, gaps between teeth, decay stains can be hidden using composite resins through bonding. The process is fairly simple and can be done in a single sitting. Dentists also use bonding to fill gaps after a root canal therapy.

Dental Implants:

Dental implants are the latest and the best method to replace missing teeth. They’re artificial teeth implanted surgically into the jawbone.

Crowns and Veneers: 

Crowns are attached on chipped and cracked teeth to improve their appearance. Also called caps, these are also attached on to the teeth after a root canal procedure. As for veneers, these are thin porcelain placed to hide chipped, cracked and oddly shaped teeth.

What to expect in a dental visit?

It is for the dentist to decide about the procedure that’s right for you. This would be based on the condition of your teeth and the kind of maintenance you can manage after the treatment.
