Types of dental procedures involved in cosmetic dentistry?

Dental Bonding: Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored tooth. Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.

Dental Implant: A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which acts as an anchor for replacement teeth. Shaped like a screw, it is surgically placed into the jaw bone in order to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in place. It is restorative procedures that replaces missing teeth with ones that look, feel, and perform like their own.

Veneer: Dental Veneer are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Enamel Shaping: This is a quick, painless and easy procedure to shape up your teeth if they are uneven or slightly overlapped. Enamel shaping is done together with other procedures such as dental bonding, veneers or teeth whitening.

Composite Filling: Our dental team can replace old, grey-colored fillings with modern white composite fillings to quickly improve your smile. If you opt for this treatment, your dentist will examine your tooth or teeth and remove any decay that has developed. They will then remove your old amalgam fillings and replace them with white fillings made from a composite material and matched closely to the color of your natural teeth.
The composite material is very strong and robust and has been designed to withstand the forces of biting and chewing food. They are durable and will last for a long time so long as you practise good oral hygiene. You will then be able to smile with full confidence that your teeth look natural and healthy.
The procedure for replacing old metal amalgam fillings with white composite fillings is a simple and effective way of improving the look of your teeth.

Dental Jewelry: Tiny jewels are fixed to the surfaces of upper anterior teeth, which give a glistening shine when you smile. This trend is increasingly turning popular among youngsters. This tiny accessory can be removed or changed if you want to try out another.
