Smile is not just about lips but also includes teeth and gums behind it. Many of us are not blessed with a perfect smile, but the good news is that there is no need to be disheartened anymore. Once the hallmark of famous stars, Smile Makeover is now easily accessible to each one of us. A smile makeover is a technique for improving the smile with the help of a few easy cosmetic procedures like laminates, ceramic crowns, teeth whitening, enamel recontouring, minor orthodontics, laser gum depigmentation, gum recontouring, and many more.
- Dental laminates and veneers in dentistry are custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials like porcelain or resin composite materials. They are designed to cover the front surface of the tooth, minimum tooth preparation is required. They are used when a patient has discolored, chipped, uneven, or irregularly shaped (e.g. with craters) or when there is a gap between the teeth.
- Ceramic crowns are the most popular type of crowns which are generally closest to a natural-looking tooth. Ceramic or porcelain crowns are the preferred option for anterior teeth which have undergone a restoration (e.g. RCT). Teeth with weak structures and post-anterior implant procedures are also covered by ceramic crowns. Tooth preparation involves reducing the size of the tooth with dental burs so that the crown can fit the tooth from all sides.
- Professional teeth whitening or bleaching can get your smile looking its best. Whitening is a one-time procedure performed by a dentist. It is amongst the most common and widely adopted cosmetic procedure. At The Dental Roots, we use the Philips ZOOM WhiteSpeed, the #1 patient-requested whitening brand. It is relatively inexpensive and the most effective way to enhance a faded smile in just 1 hour.
- Enamel recontouring or reshaping is a procedure in which a small amount of tooth enamel is removed to change the tooth’s length, shape, or surface. When there is fixing of small chips or slightly irregular tooth surface, enamel recontouring is preferred. It is also performed to make the bite even. This is the most conservative cosmetic treatment; the whole procedure is quite painless and shows an immediate result.
- Minor orthodontics is a fast treatment approach to give you the perfect smile in a limited time. This procedure is useful when there is minimal tooth movement required. For such simple tooth movement, the appliances are also simple. The whole procedure ends in a few months than years. They are usually used to fix minor gaps, crowding, or overlaps present in anterior teeth. They are also used to reposition the tooth which has shifted following orthodontic treatment.
- The color of gums plays a crucial role in the aesthetics of a smile. The normal color of gum should be coral pink, but due to the deposition of melanin gums appear to be darker. Several lifestyle factors like smoking tobacco, several medications, or amalgam tattoo could also be the reason for darker gums. Gum depigmentation with the help of lasers is a minimally invasive procedure where laser energy is used. The laser causes less bleeding, and post-opt complications like pain, swelling, and infection are also less compared to surgical techniques.
- Gum recontouring is a procedure that involves cutting or recontouring the excess gums around the teeth, if there is gum recession, then the treatment involves restoring gum tissues.
