Esthetic Dentistry

Many times, people cannot showcase their perfect smile due to various reasons like discolored, stained, broken chipped or misaligned teeth. A lot of adults also suffer from tooth decay. Esthetic dentistry aims to restore the functionality of your teeth through the most suitable treatment and provide a beautiful smile.

It involves the application of both technical and artistic skills to get the best results in terms of both. There are various treatment procedures in this branch of dentistry. The treatment procedures are elective and usually performed at a cosmetic dental clinic.

Types of Treatment Procedures 

Here is a list of the most common treatment done in this specialized branch of Dentistry-

Dental Implants: When one or more tooth is broken, it needs to be replaced, so the first step to be taken is the placement of implants. They act as the root of the replaced permanent or removable teeth providing them with a strong foundation. They are made of titanium and surgically placed in the jaw bone.

The requirement to get an Implant: Not everyone can get this treatment. Only an esthetic dentist or cosmetic dentist can decide if you can get an implant or not. For this, you should have

  • Good Oral Hygiene
  • Stong Gums
  • Enough Bone Space to support the Implant
  • Can manage regular visits to the dentist

Implants improve your chewing process, and overall oral health thus improving the working of your mouth. They have a positive impact on your appearance, speech and hence raise your confidence.

 Dental Veneers:  This esthetic solution is for broken, chipped, discoloured, uneven, misaligned, or worn down teeth. A dentist first examines your teeth and decides whether it is the best solution for you or not and then explains the entire procedure. 


  • The dentist first removes a thin layer of approximately 1.5mm of tooth enamel. 
  • An impression is taken customized veneers of porcelain are made in the laboratory.
  • When the customized veneers reach the dentist, he places them on your teeth to make sure they can be bonded well
  • He prepares the tooth by cleaning and polishing it.
  • These customized veneers are then bonded to the teeth with special cement. 
  • The entire procedure is completed in a few visits spanning over a few weeks.

Veneers have been traditionally used to provide a more natural and bright smile, they do not stain easily. Besides porcelain suits the gums well.

Teeth Whitening: It is one of the most simplest and popular procedures performed to improve your smile. Many kids, teenagers, and even adults face problems of discoloring or yellowing of teeth because of which they are unable to smile confidently. 

This may be due to some harmful coloring agents in their food or beverages or some underlying health condition. But before you go for teeth whitening it is important that you consult with a dentist if it is suitable for you or not. 

Teeth whitening can be done both at home and in a cosmetic dental clinic.

Home treatment: There are take-home toothpaste, mouthwash, or strip, DIY tooth whitening kits. After consulting an expert, you can use them at home to lighten your tooth color by one or two shades. You will be able to see results in a couple of weeks but they are not long lasting.

In-Office Treatment: If you are looking for a long-term solution you can get your teeth examined by an expert and ask for an in-office teeth whitening treatment. After considering various factors, he will perform the procedure on a fixed appointed date. In-office Teeth Whitening can lighten your teeth by two to nine shades and the results last for a long time.

Enamel Shaping: It is another simplest of cosmetic dental solutions to improve your smile. Sometimes there is a small chip or an uneven surface, which causes difficulty in speaking and affects your smile. 

This can be easily corrected with the help of tools that are used for teeth polishing. Your dental care expert will remove this chip, smoothening the surface, giving a cleaner appearance and a beautiful smile. It is a non-invasive procedure and is performed without numbing your teeth.

Dental Braces: We all have heard about braces. They are common esthetic dental devices made of brackets, wires, and metal. They are often used by orthodontists to treat crooked teeth, bad bites, and misaligned jaws.

Braces correct the positioning of the crowded, overlapped wrongly placed teeth thus giving you a confident smile. They were majorly used by kids or teenagers but now braces are gaining popularity among adults as well. 

There are different kinds of braces available in the market. Traditional braces, lingual braces, Invisalign braces, etc have made this treatment much simpler.
