A healthy set of teeth and gums allows an individual to smile wholeheartedly. A good smile naturally increases a person’s confidence levels and makes them feel more comfortable while interacting with people. But, not all of us have this luxury as various oral issues can take away our beautiful smile.
Cosmetic dentistry includes several dental procedures that are mainly aimed at improving the aesthetics of a person’s smile. Some of the procedures also enhance the functionality of the mouth, along with giving your smile an aesthetic uplift. Dr. Patel has treated numerous patients with displeasing smiles and helped them get the smile that they always dreamt of.
Decayed gums can make one’s smile look too shabby and also put their entire oral health at serious risk. The infection, if left untreated for a while, can spread to the nearby teeth and jawbone as well. The decayed gum tissues will be removed using laser therapy, and healthy ones will be grafted to the infected region to replenish their volume.
Improving the color of the teeth can enhance the appearance of the smile massively. During the whitening procedure, the stains will be removed from the surface of the teeth. Some of the teeth whitening options available are conventional whitening, whitening using plastic trays, and laser teeth whitening.
Ceramic teeth restorations such as crowns and veneers are widely used by dentists to get rid of surface imperfections of the teeth and restore them to their original form. They are also used to prevent the teeth from falling as they hold them intact and provide support. Some of the other restorations are composite bonding, fillings, inlays, and onlays.
Restoring missing teeth
Teeth that are extracted will have to be replaced using prosthetic ones. If not, it would lead to various issues such as drifting of teeth, jawbone deterioration, hindered functionality of the mouth, and, most importantly, a displeasing smile. Hence, we offer teeth restorations in the form of implants, dentures, and bridges.
Orthodontics is used to get rid of a malocclusion. Misaligned teeth can ruin a person’s smile to a great extent and lead to various other issues such as increased chances of cavities, pain in the TMJ, difficulty with chewing food, etc. Appliances such as braces and Invisalign can bring the teeth back to their right alignment and give you a perfect smile.
