Aesthetic dentistry refers to dental works that improve the appearance of your teeth, gums or bite.
It is highly focused on improving the dental aesthetics in regards to colour, position, shape, size, alignment and overall appearance of your smile. Aesthetic dentistry is concerned with beauty, artistic impact, or appearance while cosmetics are concerned with importing or improving beauty, particularly the beauty of the complexion.
Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums or bite (though not necessarily the functionality). It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in colour, position, shape, size, alignment and overall appearance.
If spoken about aesthetic dentistry, it will certainly be about the “all white Hollywood smile” or the reality makeover shows on T.V. Although these are aspects of cosmetic dentistry, they do not give the whole picture.
Aesthetic dentistry is complete oral care that combines art and science to possibly improve aesthetic, dental health and function. Thanks to advancements in modern cosmetic dental care, one can have a beautiful smile more easily than ever before.
Cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry is about creating balance and symmetry, manipulating colour and contours to produce seamless harmony with the adjacent teeth, gums, lips, and face using procedures such as veneers, orthodontics, bonding, implants and whitening.
It could be as simple as changing a filling from mercury silver to white, replacing an old discoloured filling with a more natural-looking white filling that has an invisible join, or whitening a black dead tooth with various treatment modalities. You might also be looking to cover chips and worn enamel with a veneer, or simply want a modern new crown.
Bleaching is a process used to brighten your own natural teeth without any complications. No removal, cutting or etching of your dental enamel takes place.
The procedure is called chairside bleaching and may require multiple office visits. The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleach is then applied to the teeth.
Teeth whitening is used to lighten teeth and help to remove stains or discoloration. It is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It needs to be repeated if you want to maintain a brighter color. Your dentist can provide you with a custom-made tray for at-home whitening.
Porcelain Veneers are thin shell-like structures to be placed or bonded over your natural teeth to correct cracks, chips, discolouration or misaligned teeth.
This porcelain skin gets bonded to the tooth with a special cement. Veneers are lightweight, but very strong. Normal function is possible with the veneer in place.
Veneers are the treatment of choice for smile makeovers.
