Alternatives For Cosmetic Dentistry
Various alternatives are available to correct misaligned teeth, appearance, discolored teeth among others. The dentist at Smile Zone Dental Centre performs numerous cosmetic dentistry procedures ranging from dental implants, teeth whitening, bonding, bridges, among others.
Teeth Whitening or Bleaching
Discolored or stained teeth can be corrected through bleaching or popularly known as teeth whitening. Office teeth whitening involves a chemical which is applied on the teeth to remove the stains and any embedded irregularities.
It is a 45-minute procedure, quick with high efficacy as opposed to the home teeth whitening techniques that may take ages to bring about the desired results.
Contouring & Reshaping
During this procedure, one’s crooked, chipped or irregularly formed teeth (overlapping) are corrected. This may take a single session or two and during the procedure, the position, shape or the length of the teeth is altered.
Crowns are generally dental caps fixed on the teeth during cosmetic dentistry in India to restore the tooth’s normal shape. Crowns are professionally applied on the teeth and will also require a dentist’s removal after a specified period of time.
Generally, bonding is a dental procedure where a tooth-colored material is used to fill the gaps (missing tooth) or to change the color of the existing teeth. Composite resins are the common materials used when bonding. Bonding is commonly suitable when there are slight cavities, or to correct chipped teeth.
Commonly referred to as porcelain veneers, they are customized wafer-thin pieces placed over the front teeth to change the shape of the teeth or improve their appearance. Since veneers are customized, the dentist will first take your dental impressions and make the suitable veneers.
The cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
The cost mostly depends on the type of treatment desired. Some procedures are lengthy and require a lot of work (procedures) as per the patient’s situation while for other patients, the procedures are shorter and require less effort.
In case of any underlying untreated dental issues like cavities, treatment will first be provided and this may increase a patient’s cosmetic dentistry cost in India.
