Cosmetic Dentistry – Increase Your Self Confidence

Cosmetic dentistry is a combination of conventional dentistry practices with an added emphasis on art and aesthetic qualities. Its primary aim is to make the teeth look more pleasant and appealing rather than specifically repairing any damage. It has become increasingly more popular in recent years thanks to the development of various dental techniques and the wider availability and affordability of treatments.Dentists are now able to create a perfect smile for any patient, regardless of the quality of their existing teeth There really is no problem too big or small that cannot benefit from some form of cosmetic repair.

For teeth that are chipped or broken, patients have the option of cosmetic bonding which can be matched to the colour of existing teeth before being applied and hardened in the desired shape. Alternatively, ceramic porcelain crowns or veneers can be attached to broken teeth to restore the cosmetic appearance and act as a barrier to further damage. Using the very latest CEREC technology, ceramic restorations can be designed and manufactured in the same day, eliminating the need for lengthy laboratory manufacture.

Patients with badly discoloured teeth can have the natural colour restored either with a row of dental veneers or by using a teeth whitening system such as Zoom. Using a bleaching agent, usually hydrogen peroxide, teeth whitening systems cover up discolouration caused by age and food stuffs that have accumulated over time. Teeth whitening procedures can whiten teeth by up to ten shades and have the most dramatic cosmetic effect.

Other cosmetic treatments include teeth straightening using orthodontic braces, dental bridges and implants to replace one or more missing teeth or even dentures to restore whole missing dental arcs. Whatever the problem, cosmetic dentistry has the solution to create beautiful teeth that can help restore confidence and self-esteem.Having a beautiful and healthy smile can make patients look much younger and is one of the most simple ways of making yourself more attractive. Make an appointment to discuss cosmetic dentistry with your dentist and see what wonders can be performed for your smile.

“Hollywood” Smile Makeover : Porcelain Veneers

If you have unsightly amalgam fillings, tooth discoloration, or uneven teeth, it may be to your advantage to have porcelain veneers. While these coverings will not necessarily add any strength to your teeth, they will make them look much more attractive. Today, when you visit a dentist , you can have porcelain veneers created for you.

In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.Depending on the size of the area that needs to be filled in, your dentist may need to do a small amount of drilling. Typically, most patients do not require anesthesia for this process. That said, if you are nervous about dental drills, your dentists will do everything possible to help you relax and feel comfortable. For the most part, you will find that having porcelain veneers placed is far less distressing than getting cavities filled.

Traditionally, a reduction of approximately 0.5 mm is required for a porcelain veneer. Once the surfaces of your teeth are prepared for veneer insertion, your dentist will need to take molds of each tooth surface. From there, the porcelain veneers will need to be custom designed. In most cases, you will need to come back for a second visit in order to have the veneers bonded to you teeth. While this is not a painful process, you will be very relieved to see how much better you look with your new porcelain veneers in place.

As may be expected, veneers are primarily used to help create an even and beautiful smile. Therefore, you may find that you will need several veneers inserted at the same time. This will help create even coloring for all of your teeth, as well as make it easier for your dentist to create a harmonious balance that will create a perfect smile. Perhaps best of all, once your porcelain veneers are in place, you can enjoy a bright, beautiful smile for years to come.

Ultra Thin Veneers-Lumineers

Lumineers are a special type of ultra-thin veneers by Cerinate. Just like traditional veneers, Lumineers can reshape your smile and give you that perfect smile makeover. They can cover gaps between teeth and enhance the appearance of worn-down and discoloured teeth.
The main difference is that Lumineers are made from a special patented cerinate porcelain that is very strong but much thinner than traditional laboratory-fabricated veneers. Their thickness is comparable to contact lenses, and so they are often called contact lenses for your teeth. The main advantage of these ultra-thin veneers is that minimal tooth preparation is required. In other words, very little – if any – of your natural tooth structure needs to be removed through shaving or grinding prior to bonding the Lumineers over your natural teeth. As a result, the procedure is often reversible, since your natural tooth structure is left intact, unlike traditional veneers, where a significant amount of your tooth structure may need to be removed.

They are the perfect solution for stained, chipped, discoloured or slightly misaligned teeth.
