Smile Makeover Options by Dr. Kumarswamy's Dental Clinic
A smile makeover is a cosmetic modification to help you attain the smile you always wanted. At Dr. Kumarswamy's Dental clinic, Cosmetic dentists help you shape your mouth, teeth, and gums to create the perfect smile.
We believe every individual should look in the mirror, smile, and analyze and appreciate what they see. However, that is not always the case. Some people explore but cannot accept what they see. This is because of some factors that are genetically driven, like jaw size and shape, the straightness of the teeth, or the size of the teeth. Some people have a naturally straight and ideal shape that compliments their other facial features, while others believe they possess less than perfect smiles through no fault of their own.
Earlier, people had no choice but accepted the smile they naturally had. Today, this is not the case at all due to advancements in modern dentistry procedures, equipment, and deeper exploration in the cosmetic segment. This transition has enabled people to alter the smile they receive genetically to the way they want it to be. By operating specific cosmetic dentistry techniques, from dental implants to orthodontia, one can enhance their smiles and feel much more confident.
We offer a variety of techniques to smile at people's makeovers. These procedures may combine a variety of dental procedures to improve the looks of a person's smile.
Tooth whitening is one of the least invasive cosmetic dental techniques. Many options exist for consumers who wish to have a brighter smile. Consumers can go with do-it-yourself kits available in department and medical stores, or they can have the dentist apply a whitening treatment in the dentist's office. Typically, Healthy and unrestored teeth see better results from whitening procedures. Your dentist can help you decide if whitening is a good option for your smile.
Dental veneers change the size and shape of a patient's teeth. These thin porcelain or resin composite shells are custom-made for each patient. They are bonded to the existing teeth and drastically improve the appearance of someone's smile. Sometimes people, whose natural teeth are too small to be considered attractive, have veneers applied to make the smile seem fuller and more beautiful. This procedure is permanent.
Tooth reshaping is a minimally invasive procedure that can correct minor tooth chips and spacing issues. In tooth reshaping, the dentist painlessly files off the irregular parts of the tooth to make it more attractive. This dental procedure provides almost instant improvement to the patient's smile.
If you have broken or cracked teeth, crowns improve the appearance of the teeth. Your dentist reshapes the existing broken tooth into a small peg in a crown procedure. An artificial tooth made of metal, porcelain, or resin is fitted over the peg and bonded into place. The crown will then be matched to the remaining teeth.
If you have missing teeth, rather than using dentures or bridges, modern dentistry allows you to get a more permanent fix — dental implants. Your dentist surgically bonds a platinum post into your jaw during the implant procedure. After a few months, the jawbone grows around the titanium post, providing an excellent, stable base for a new, artificial tooth. Your dentist attaches a custom-made artificial tooth onto the platinum post at later appointments. Dental implants are excellent choices for young people suffering from tooth loss because they last a long time with very little wear. If the artificial tooth is damaged somehow, replacing it on the titanium post is easy.
Orthodontics may be part of the smile makeover if your teeth are out of alignment. Orthodontics has come a long way in the past twenty or thirty years. Patients may be able to forgo the classic "mouth full of metal" style of braces for Invisalign procedures. This orthodontic method relies on custom-made plastic trays that slowly move the teeth into alignment. This method is perfect for adults or self-conscious teens who want to correct their smiles unobtrusively.
