Types of Cosmetic Dental Procedures
We use this procedure to whiten and brighten your teeth if you have discolored or stained teeth. This process is also called teeth bleaching.
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells made of composite or porcelain. We use them to deal with issues, such as crooked teeth, chipped teeth, discolored teeth, spacing, missing teeth, etc. They are custom-made.
Crowns are custom-made caps that cover the entire tooth and hide defects like decay, broken or chipped teeth, poorly shaped teeth, gaps between the teeth, etc. They are made of porcelain fused to metal or acrylic. We prepare the tooth or teeth in question, take an impression, and prepare dental crowns.
Dental implants are the latest technology we use to replace your missing teeth. They are metal restorations made of titanium and are placed into your jawbone. They act as the root of teeth and anchor prosthetics, such as bridges, dentures, or crowns.
Under this procedure, we reshape your teeth by removing or filling some enamel. The process is also known as enamel shaping.
We fix a tooth-colored material to your teeth to conceal their aesthetic issues, like broken, chipped, or stained teeth.
- Cosmetic Orthodontic Treatment
We correct your smile by correcting the alignment of your teeth through orthodontic treatment. Under this process, we use braces and other orthodontic appliances to correct your crooked or buck teeth.
Also known as indirect fillings, they are made of composite, porcelain, or gold. We use these restorations for decayed and damaged teeth that cannot support a regular dental filling. They are made at dental labs, and we bond them to the teeth at our clinic.
