The Know Series – Cosmetic Dentistry

The study of dentistry includes various diseases of the oral cavity, the treatment of these diseases, and the general maintenance of oral hygiene. Cosmetic dentistry is part of this study, where the appearance of the patient's smile, mouth, and teeth is very important.

This part of the research was aimed at restoring young, beautiful white teeth even in old age. For example, a dental filling is a cosmetic dentistry process of filling a rotten tooth cavity with amalgam made of gold and other materials. Now, this is done with the help of porcelain and other materials that maintain the natural color of the teeth and repair cracks or chips. 

Sometimes problems with unnatural gaps between the teeth are also solved with their help. The current generation is more aware of the perfection of appearance and oral health without the disease. Therefore, visits to the dentist are also more frequent. This is to protect the teeth from disease and keep them white.

Now cosmetic dentistry treatments include various methods such as composite glue, veneers, implants, smiles, a full-mouth restoration, teeth whitening, and many others. 

In the composite bonding method, teeth that are discolored, broken, or rotten are reshaped with some composite material so that the enamel and dentin look like the original. It also acts as a teeth whitening agent which effectively whitens to provide the desired glaze.

Often we can see completely decayed teeth which gives a strange appearance and also affects the health of the gums. In this case, the tooth is completely eradicated and a new denture is implanted in this space to maintain the missing appearance.
