Cosmetic Smile Designing
Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dentistry that seeks to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Cosmetic specialist, can bring smile on your face by doing whiten teeth, replace missing teeth, and repair chipped teeth through a variety of cosmetic dentistry options, including tooth bleaching, porcelain veneers, dental implants, bonding, dental crowns, and bridges.
This process becomes important when a person has stained or discolored teeth, if the teeth are overlapping, crooked or are crowded. You need this when the gums are swollen, bleeding or red. A correction is needed if there are gaps between the teeth, if the shape is uneven due to rough edges, chipping or fracture, if teeth are uneven in length. Any of these teeth troubles require cosmetic smile designing.
Cosmetic Dentistry options to improve your Smile

A beautiful smile can attract a lot of people and can bring fortunes. Any kind of problem with teeth can be a black mark on one’s smile. This procedure is needed in the following cases:
Smile designing procedures are important to correct any damage in the smiles, which might be the color or shape of the teeth or gums.
Veneers and Laminates
Veneers and laminates are another conservative approach to enhancing the look of your teeth. They are a thin shell made of porcelain or composite resin that is cemented to the front surface of the tooth. Like bonding, veneers are used to cover up discoloration, cracks and chipping, and to change the shape or size of your teeth. However, porcelain veneers outperform bonding with greater resilience and a greater resistance to stains and dulling. Also, they tend to look more natural than a bonded tooth.
Lumineers is same as veneers but need less preparation of the teeth. These smile shapers are as thin as a contact lens that are applied to the front surface of the teeth in a painless manner.

When it’s dark enough, you can see the stars.
You may not be able to control every situation and its outcome, but you can control your attitude and how you deal with it.
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible. Hope never abandons you, you abandon it.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Dear GOD, if today I lose my hope please remind me that your plans are better than my Dream.....
The term "dental bonding" can refer to a number of related dental techniques. In general, after a tooth’s surface has been properly prepared, a white colored dental filling material is bonded onto the tooth. Dental bonding might be utilized as a way to improve the appearance of a cosmetic defect found on the surface of a tooth, to replace tooth structure that has chipped away or broken, or to repair damage caused by tooth decay. At an extreme, this technique can be used to resurface the entire front side of a tooth so to improve its cosmetic appearance. As a benefit, when compared with the other cosmetic dentistry techniques reviewed on this page dental bonding can be relatively inexpensive and is usually a "completed in one visit" type dental procedure. As a disadvantage, dental bonding material has a tendency to stain as time passes and in general isn’t as lasting or durable a treatment as other cosmetic dental procedures. However, and one more point in the plus column, if dental bonding does chip or break it can usually be easily patched or repaired. It is the use of a tooth colored restorative material that is applied on to the teeth. It can then be polished and shaped to look like the rest of the teeth. Composite veneers cover the facial surface of teeth to change tooth color, position or shape. Addition of composite to tooth structure increases tooth size and therefore, there is often tooth reduction to make room for composite placement. Amount of reduction is determined by position of original tooth in relation to the desired position and color of tooth structure in relation to the thickness of composite materials required to block out color.
Crown, also known as caps are permanent caps molded like a real tooth, custom crafted and then cemented straight to the prepared tooth. They are made from various materials: metal, ceramic, resin or porcelain (depending on the patient’s mouth). A portion of the tooth is ground down, after it looks like a round peg, the crown is pegged. It generally lasts for around 10-15 years. They protect a weak tooth from decaying, for restoring the worn out teeth, for covering a dental implant or for covering discolored teeth.
Tooth loss can be due to various reasons like gum disease, injury, decay or simply wearing. A gap in smile can create significant dental problems, if not corrected in time. In due course of time, bite pressure might shift to other parts of the mouth creating an inability in chewing Neighboring teeth may begin moving, creating gaping and finally discomfort or pain. Porcelain bridges fill these gaps. Bridges get support of natural teeth or implants are made of metal, porcelain or alloys.
Gummy Smile Correction
A beautiful smile shows pearly-white teeth and almost no gums above the two front teeth but sometimes, too much of gum above the upper front teeth is shown. These tissues can be safely modified in position and shape so that more of teeth are shown.
The process is of removing a small amount of enamel of teeth for shortening long teeth, rounding- off pointed teeth and help in creating a beautiful smile.
It involves a series of procedures used in creating a ‘balanced smile’ especially when one is not interested in traditional dental treatments. Here, advanced dental technologies and dental ceramics are used.
Teeth jewellery is a brilliant way to add sparkles to your smile and stand out of the crowd. In this process, a jewel is fixed on the surface of the teeth. This does harm the tooth tissues and have no side effects. Even its removal is also without any side effects on the tooth structure.
