1. Cosmetic dentistry involves procedures which can be undertaken to improve the facial structure and appearance of the patient. This involves procedures for teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental implants, composite bonding and inlay and just work. Teeth whitening can be done at home and the dental clinic. For at home procedures, one needs to wear teeth whitening trays. These are manufactured at the dental laboratory after taking an impression of the teeth and gums. These are worn over the teeth and gums for a given number of days for a given duration of time each day. Slowly, but surely, the teeth start to whiten. The procedure in the dental clinic revolves around first prepping up the teeth. An activating gel is then smeared over them, and a laser beam is passed over the teeth for a given duration of time at a given intensity.
  2. Composite bonding involves the use of a composite resin on the teeth. It can be used to fix broken or cracked teeth, stained teeth and gaps in between teeth. Also, it can be made use of for making the teeth appear longer than what they are. However, this resin is not very strong and hence care, and precautions should be taken with its use. Also, the resin can easily get stained or yellowed if too much intake of tea, coffee, red wine or other such drinks is done. Also, it can stain with excessive use of tobacco and other such products.
  3. Dental veneer cosmetic dentistry treatment is a process of cementing a thin dental aid onto the surface of the tooth. This can be used to make the tooth appear longer or broader than what it is. Also, it can be used for removing the ill effect of teeth staining, among other reasons. However, one should be careful while using veneers. They can break or crack if the patient bites into a food item which is very hard or sticky.
  4. Dental implant treatment to is a form of cosmetic dentistry. This is permanent. Also, implants can last the entire duration of the lifetime of a person if they are cared for properly. The implant treatment involves drilling a titanium screw into the jaw bone of the patient. The jaw bone grows around the implant naturally, and it becomes firm in its place in a matter of three to four months. A dental crown or cap is placed atop the implant to function as the tooth which the world sees. Implants are such that the person’s original manner of eating, smiling and talking is restored. Also, they look so much the original set of teeth of the patient that he or she does not feel conscious at all with them. They need to be shown to the dentist on a periodic basis for minor adjustments. However, they should be looked after as one would do for one’s natural teeth for them to last as long as is possible.
