A smile can improve the appearance of an individual. Sometimes misaligned, discolored, chipped, broken teeth can be an obstruction to a pleasant smile. Cosmetic dentistry or aesthetic dentistry is where people turn to get a makeover of their dental appearance. The treatments vary and can help to reshape, fill the gaps, align, lighten, and repair teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments include the following:
Gingival depigmentation is also termed as gum bleaching, a cosmetic procedure used to lighten or remove black spots from the teeth. It occurs due to the accumulation of melanin in the gingival tissue and creates black patches or spots on the gums. Even though gingival depigmentation gives a good result, in the long run, a re-pigmentation will be a common issue associated with this procedure.
Tooth jewellery involves sticking small jewels onto the teeth with dental cement or paste. There are different jewellery designs, and one can choose what they like. It is essential to keep the area around the tooth jewel clean, or else chances of tooth decay are more. Tooth jewellery is 100% reversible. It is a simple instant makeover, that adds a sparkle to the smile.
With the advanced techniques, the dentist can bring a dramatic difference to an individual’s smile and overall oral health.
