SMILE DESIGNING


With so much media coverage on cosmetic dentistry as seen on Extreme Makeover and The Swan, people are more aware of solutions they may not have been aware of just a few years ago.  Some of the solutions may include In-office whitening, gum contouring, metal free crowns and porcelain veneers.

Analyse Your SMILE

Every Smile Design is unique to each patient. In today’s modern dentistry, one size does not fit all. Our Smile Design begins with a consultation with Dr.Meena. She wants to understand how you see your smile now and what you want to achieve with your smile design and what kind of budget you have in mind. 

Composite restorations

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.

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.


Diastema Closure

A diastema is a space between front teeth. Diastemas are closed by orthodontics or restoration. A highly successful technique is addition of composite. A space which is too large and closed with composite results in teeth that are esthetically too wide and orthodontics is recommended. Space closure requires placement of composite two adjacent teeth. Placement of composite onto one tooth can be done it proper tooth dimensions allow it.



Enamel Shaping

Like its name suggests, enamel shaping refers to the process of contouring natural teeth to achieve better appearance. It can be employed to adjust the slight irregular shape caused by too many or uneven teeth. It can also correct the length of your eye teeth. Because enamel shaping involves modifying teeth by only removing or contouring enamel, some other procedures are sometimes needed in conjunction with it, such as ordering braces from a specialist in orthodontics.
This painless procedure, sometimes also along with bonding, can give immediate results. However you should be cautioned before diving into it because enamel can not be restored once removed.
Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is bonded onto the front surface of a tooth so to improve its cosmetic appearance.
A porcelain veneer can be an ideal way to make a cosmetic change for a tooth. Compared to dental bonding, porcelain veneers usually look more life like and they have the added benefit of resisting staining well. As a disadvantage, porcelain veneers are typically fairly expensive and if used in the wrong application can be prone to breaking. Unlike dental bonding, if a porcelain veneer has broken typically the whole veneer must be replaced. It usually cannot be patched or repaired.
If you've ever wondered why so many individuals have such perfect smiles, you might be surprised to find out how many of them have had cosmetic dental work done.

Cosmetic Repositioning

Porcelain veneers and crowns are extremely lifelike and hold their brilliance, unlike bonding which often appears bulky or fake. Although porcelain is an extremely translucent material, it is also very strong. Porcelain veneers and crowns are permanent restorations, and they can be expected to last for many years. Also, there are no food restrictions - once they are cemented you can eat normally (apples, corn on the cob, etc.) - porcelain simply covers the imperfections in your own smile! They are often used to fix gaps between teeth, or cover stained or irregular teeth. This procedure is usually not reversible because a very thin surface of enamel is removed to give room for the shells.

All Porcelain Crowns

All Porcelain Crowns can provide the same sort of major cosmetic changes that porcelain veneers can make. However, unlike porcelain veneers that only cover over the front sides of teeth, All Porcelain Crowns cup over and encase the entire aspect of a tooth which lies above the gum line.
In comparison to porcelain veneers, All Porcelain Crowns are stronger and more durable but because making one involves trimming away a significant amount of tooth structure they usually aren't the best choice for making a cosmetic change for a tooth, unless the tooth also requires the non-cosmetic benefits the crown can provide. Like porcelain veneers, there is typically a fair amount of cost involved when All Porcelain Crowns are made.

Dental Jewellery

Teeth jewellery is a brilliant way to add sparkles to your smile and stand out of the crowd.
Teeth jewellery offered at our clinic. During a painless procedure, a dentist fixes a jewel on the tooth surface. The jewel does not damage tooth tissues and has no side effects – except for the increased charm of your smile! Call it an oral fashion statement to stand out among ordinary mortals or simply an effort to blend in with the bold and the beautiful.

If somebody thinks he or she was better off without tooth jewellery, it can be easily removed without any side effects on the dental tooth structure as the procedure is non-invasive. What's more, tooth jewellery can be fixed again at a later stage.

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR --- COME & HAVE THAT EXTRA SPARK*** IN YOUR SMILE.

Comparing the longevity of Cosmetic Dental work

We would like to mention that some of the cosmetic changes you might choose to make with your teeth could have very long lasting consequences. Please realize that no dental work will last forever. This is especially true when cosmetics are a primary consideration.

While a disadvantage of any teeth whitening process is that its effects will fade with time, a benefit of whitening in general is that as a process it makes no structural changes to a tooth. At some point in the future you can decide to or decide not to under go the teeth whitening process again. Either choice is entirely optional or this leeway may make teeth whitening the best solution for your cosmetic needs.

To the contrary, having porcelain veneers or dental crowns placed means that there will always need to be a porcelain veneer or dental crown on the tooth. So, if a crown or veneer comes off, breaks, or just deteriorates from a standpoint of its appearance, another crown or veneer will need to be made. You will have to ask your dentist for details regarding your specific situation but in general this applies to dental bonding as well.
