Project Description

A simple guide to aesthetic dentistry

Aesthetic dentistry refers to dental procedures that are used to improve the appearance of one’s smile and face, rather than treat disease.

  • Aesthetic dentistry is aimed at improving the overall look of one’s natural smile.
  • Common cosmetic dental techniques include tooth whitening, reshaping and bonding.
  • Periodontal plastic surgical procedures can be used to raise or lower the gum line around the teeth.
  • These procedures are usually associated with psychological and lifestyle benefits.

What is aesthetic dentistry?

Aesthetic dentistry, or cosmetic dentistry, is any dental procedure that is primarily aimed at improving the overall appearance of one’s smile. In dentistry, form and function go hand in hand, therefore we plan every procedure with a mind to the aesthetic outcome. Teeth which feel comfortable and look great give our patients psychological and lifestyle benefits.

In aesthetic dentistry we pay close attention to the size, shape, colour, position and alignment of teeth and gums. We use a variety of periodontal, conservative and prosthodontic procedures to correct crooked, rotated or misshapen teeth and also restore the natural white colour of dark or discoloured teeth. When needed, we work closely with leading orthodontists to create the best possible results.

What types of procedures are used?

Aesthetic dentistry makes use of various materials, such as ceramic, resin and metals, to alter the look of the teeth and gums. This may involve either the addition of dental material like crowns and veneers, or the removal of tooth structure and gums.

Other techniques involve the complete reshaping of teeth using prosthetics, or else simply superficial changes like whitening.

The most common cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
