A brighter, healthy and beautiful smile is what all of us want as it is the first thing noticed by others when we talk or smile. Since a beautiful smile is priceless and precious, and enhances one’s appearance and personality, it is really important to take care of your teeth. A healthy and beautiful smile builds self-confidence, self-esteem as well as personal relationships. Your smile is considered as a most valuable and precious asset and has a great effect on every aspect of life.

Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance and function of a person's teeth and gums. Some of the reasons for which people opt for this includes:
• Discolored teeth

• Too large or small teeth

• Gaps between teeth

• Crooked or crowded teeth

• Gummy Smile 

• Broken or decayed teeth

• Discolored fillings

Cosmetic dentistry procedure can be performed in adjunct with dental treatments such as dental implants, dental bridges, fillings, crowns, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and orthodontics etc. Upon consultation, your dentist can suggest you the necessary treatments to improve your smile and appearance. Some treatments include:
Teeth Whitening or Teeth Bleaching: while many whitening options are available over the counter like whitening strips, toothpastes and home bleach kits;Dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedure. In the chair-side bleach system, the color of the teeth can be lightened in one hour and most importantly without causing any side effects. A complete consultation with the dentist is recommended prior.

Veneers: these are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates which are bonded directly to the teeth. They help in closing small gaps, covering discolored teeth or teeth with internal stains.

White Fillings: cavities can be filled with white composite materials instead of traditional silver amalgam.

Tooth re-shaping: this helps in re-shaping the appearance of the teeth to match the other teeth. Only very minimal amount of enamel is removed to correct small chips, irregularities, shape or length of the teeth.  It is done carefully to avoid the exposure of dentine which may otherwise lead to sensitivity.  This procedure is also called as enameloplasty or re-contouring and is not a substitute for orthodontics / braces treatment.

Smile Designing: Smile analysis is necessary for this and then a customized treatment plan made to create the so called ‘Hollywood Smile’

Crowns and Bridges: Help to replace broken or missing teeth using porcelain crowns/ caps. Full mouth rehabilitation can also be done using metal free options.

Treatment of gummy smile: this is a procedure that involves reshaping the gums and the underlying bone to create the appearance of longer and more symmetrical teeth.
