Smile designing is the procedure to enhance quality of your smile by correcting
the shape, colour, visibility and alignment of your teeth. It may be a simple reshaping
of one or two teeth to a complex procedure involving orthodontics, bridges, whitening
and minor surgeries like gum contouring and sulcus reduction.
Various procedures Involved in Smile designing:
1. Cosmetic contouring
It is done if there is only mild corrections in shape that can be achieved by trimming
of your teeth in the enamel layer only.
2. Direct Composite veneering
Moderate alignment problems an irregularities can be corrected with direct application
of high quality composite resin along with contouring.
3. Indirect Ceramic Laminates
For more aesthetic correction of the teeth, we use custom lab fabricated laminates
in ceramic and fix it on to the tooth.
4. Crowns and bridges
If it needs more extensive shape changes and alignments we will go for metal free
ceramic crowns or bridges. It has more durability and strength than laminates.
All the above procedures can be completed in a few days.
Orthodontics also is considered for Smile designing provided you have enough time
and is willing to visit the clinic frequently for checkups during the treatment.
The treatment may take 3-18 months depending on the case. The advantage is, it
doesn’t remove any of your tooth structure or nothing is added to it and the result
is maintenance free.
Sometimes the colour of the teeth will be too yellowish or dark. This problem can
be corrected by whitening procedures. It can be performed in the Clinic or at home.
A brighter teeth along with other cosmetic corrections will add value to your face.
