Tooth or Dare: Navigating the World of Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental professionals use their skills and expertise to design a smile that is uniquely yours.

Cosmetic dentistry is the art of creating a smile that is both healthy and beautiful. It’s like a facelift for your teeth, but without the scalpel and anaesthetic. It is the perfect blend of science and art, where an ordinary smile is turned into an extraordinary one. It is the secret to achieving a lifetime of beaming grins.

Some may want their teeth whitened, straightened, or reshaped to enhance the appearance of their smile. Others may want to fix dental problems such as chips, cracks, or gaps in their teeth. Other reasons one may opt for cosmetic dentistry include improving their overall oral health and restoring the youthful appearance of their teeth as they age. Dr. Anand, at Extreme Dentistry, offers a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you get the smile you’ve been dreaming of.

What cosmetic dental treatments are on offer?

  1. CEREC

CEREC, Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is used to create and place ceramic restorations that are biocompatible and create a tooth that is the same as a real tooth, physically and aesthetically.

To perform the CEREC procedure, your oral health will first be assessed, and a 3D scan of your mouth will be taken using an intraoral camera. This will allow the dentist to determine the best solution for the teeth that need to receive CEREC treatment.

Once the CEREC solution designed for you has been created and custom-made to fit you, the dentist will fit the porcelain restoration to the tooth or teeth that need reparation.

Not only does the CEREC procedure require you to attend 1-3 sessions to complete it, but it also doesn’t involve sending material off to a lab and doesn’t require you to wait out a temporary solution before you receive the final restoration.

  1. Gummy Smile Treatment

You may feel you have a gummy smile if the ratio of your lips, gums, and teeth is not balanced, resulting in a smile with either too much or too little teeth showing. A gummy smile treatment typically involves reshaping the gums to reduce the amount of gum tissue that is visible when smiling. This can be done through a procedure known as “crown lengthening,” which involves removing excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth. In some cases, a gummy smile can also be treated with orthodontic treatment to reposition the jaw.

The advantages of getting gummy smile treatment include an improved appearance of the smile, increased confidence in smiling and speaking, and better symmetry of the upper lip and teeth. The treatment can also improve the function of the teeth and gums and may help prevent future dental problems. Additionally, gummy smile treatment can also correct any problems caused by an uneven gum line or irregular tooth positioning.

Create a better balance between your teeth and gums with Extreme Dentistry and change the way you feel about showing your teeth when smiling.

  1. White Fillings

White fillings are made from a mixture of composite resin and a curing light. They are used to fill in cavities, repair chips or cracks in the teeth, and can also be used to make cosmetic changes to the teeth, such as reshaping or resizing them.

One of the main advantages of white fillings is that they can be closely matched to the colour of the existing teeth, making them a more aesthetically pleasing option than traditional metal fillings. They can be used on both the front and back teeth and can be placed quickly and easily. They also require less removal of the natural tooth structure compared to silver fillings.

  1. Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom-made, shell-like covers designed to fit and cover the surface of one’s teeth. They are commonly used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth and smile. Not only do they improve the aesthetic quality of one’s teeth, but they can be used to fix dental issues such as discolouration, chips, cracks, gaps, and misalignment of teeth.

Porcelain veneers are made by a dental technician using impressions of the patient’s teeth. The veneers are then bonded to the front surface of the teeth using a special dental adhesive. The process usually requires multiple visits to the dentist and may involve the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for the veneers.

One of the main advantages of porcelain veneers is that they can create a very natural-looking and long-lasting improvement to the appearance of the teeth. They are also durable and can resist staining better than composite resin veneers.
