Cosmetic Dentistry

It is amazing how much more can a bright smile with beautiful teeth add to a person\'s self esteem!

Cosmetic dentistry enhances and whitens the teeth.

  • Teeth Whitening

Teeth do not need to be ground like in case of veneers or crowns. Teeth can be made nicer without an invasive method, without sacrificing the teeth themselves. Tooth whitening can be done at home (it is cheaper but it takes longer, 2-3 weeks) or in the surgery (it is more expensive but it only takes about an hour).
 

  • Veneers

The Dentist can put veneers on your teeth if teeth whitening don’t work or even if that’s what you prefer to do instead of going the whitening route. They are usually made of porcelain or composite and do an excellent job of hiding any satins or discoloration of your teeth. They last up to ten years. The dentist takes a mold of your teeth and uses it to make the veneer. The veneer is a covering for the teeth and when you wear it, it looks just like your teeth. You do have to have some tooth work and reduction done before you can wear the veneer, so once you have them you always have to keep them.

  • Reshaping

The Dentist can also reshape the teeth by making them longer or shorter. He/She can also round off any pointed teeth. This procedure is completely painless because it only deals with the enamel, which doesn’t have any nerves and the whole process can be completed within a half hour. Resin or colored tooth fillings (white or bonded) are also possible in order to improve the appearance of your teeth. This is the same material the dentist uses for ordinary fillings but it can also be used to make veneers that cover the teeth to improve the color.
 

  • Tooth Jewellery

A thousand years ago, for people in the Maya culture the aesthetic appearance of their teeth had a great importance. Their front teeth were decorated with colorful nefrit stones. The idea of the tooth jewellery of our days must be coming from there. Try it and make your smile nicer!
