What Is Cosmetic Dental Treatment?


A radiant smile is something we all desire. Yet, imperfections may leave you feeling dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth and the way your smile looks.

Cosmetic Dental Care is the area of dentistry that focuses on improving the aesthetic appearance of your smile while improving the functions of your teeth. At SDG Dental, we offer a variety of cosmetic options, including dental implants, veneers and bridges. Whether you want to get a brighter and straighter smile or get rid of the gaps between your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can address all these issues and leave you happy and confident!

Cosmetic Dentistry is not just about enhancing the aesthetics, it’s also about improving teeth functionality. If you’re looking to improve the aesthetics of your smile and the functionalities of your teeth then cosmetic dental treatments offer the perfect solutions for your teeth!

Types Of Cosmetic Dental Treatments


Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants

Implants are an ideal, long-term solution to replace missing teeth. Made of titanium, these dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and can replicate the tooth to its root. Then it undergoes a process called osseointegration, where the implant integrates with the jawbone to form a strong bond and foundation to support the crown prosthesis that is placed onto the fixture.

For dental implants to be successful, each candidate must:

  • Have adequate bone quality and volume
  • Meet general medical requirements
  • Practise good oral hygiene
  • Not have gum disease
  • Not be a smoker or be willing to give up smoking

A consultation is required to assess whether dental implants are the best option for you. If you don’t have enough healthy bone,  All-On-4 Implants may be an available solution. At this consultation, bone levels will be assessed using dental imaging and in-chair examinations. If you don’t have sufficient bone density, our dentists may recommend a bone graft or general dentistry solutions to improve your oral health.

Cosmetic Dental Veneers


Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells bonded to the front of your teeth to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. They help address a range of cosmetic issues, such as discoloured, chipped or slightly crooked teeth, without the need for whitening or orthodontics. While teeth whitening is the first solution to treat discoloured teeth, veneers are a great solution for more severe cases where teeth whitening is not an option.

You may be a candidate for veneers if you have:

  • Slightly crooked teeth, but do not wish to have braces.
  • Spaces between your teeth, but do not want to have braces.
  • Naturally/genetically small or irregularly shaped teeth that you wish to make larger, wider or longer.
  • Discoloured teeth from trauma, root canal treatment or general staining.
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Maintain good oral health free of problems such as gum disease and teeth grinding.

We offer our patients the choice of two types of cosmetic veneers – Porcelain and Composite.

Porcelain Veneers

  • Porcelain material is used to create strong and durable veneers with high stain resistance.
  • With meticulous professional care, regular maintenance appointments, and optimal at-home oral hygiene practices, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years.
  • Porcelain material is effective in its ability to reflect light and match existing natural teeth.
  • Porcelain veneers are made by a specialist prosthodontist in a laboratory indirectly before being bonded to your natural tooth. Therefore, multiple appointments are required.

 

Composite Veneers

  • Composite material is used to build-up your natural tooth directly in your mouth in a single visit.
  • Composite veneers can achieve the same aesthetic improvement as porcelain veneers. However, composite veneers are less durable than porcelain and will need to be replaced more frequently.
  • Composite veneers are less stain-resistant in comparison to porcelain veneers.

Other Cosmetic Dental Treatments


Porcelain Inlay and Onlay Restorations

Porcelain inlays are an indirect restoration (filling) made of a solid porcelain substance. This is fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place. Inlays involve fabricating the restoration outside of the mouth using the dental impressions of the prepared tooth.

An onlay is the same as an inlay, except that it incorporates a replacement for a tooth cusp by covering the area where the missing cusp would be.

Emax Porcelain Veneers

These types of veneers are more commonly used to replace congenitally missing teeth in young adults or children who are not ready for final implant and crown restorations until age 21. Emax is another type of porcelain veneers custom-made from high-quality, durable porcelain material to offer a natural and lifelike appearance, enhance the beauty of your teeth and preserve their strength.

Maryland Bridges

The Maryland Bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth (pontic) that fills the gap by the missing tooth and is attached to the adjacent teeth using a metal or porcelain framework. It is a less invasive option, unlike traditional bridges that require the removal of some enamel from the neighbouring teeth to support the bridge. Maryland bridges are bonded to the backside of the adjacent teeth using a strong dental adhesive. This makes the natural structure of the neighbouring teeth remain intact.

Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a simple and easy option for patients who have slightly crooked or discoloured teeth. During this process, a composite material made according to the natural shade of your teeth is bonded to the front of your tooth to cover any irregularities. Dental bonding is a relatively quick and painless procedure that doesn’t cause any damage to your tooth enamel. With proper care, dental bonding can last up to 10 years.

Gum Recontouring

Are your gums disproportionate to the level of your teeth? If you feel like you have a gummy smile, our gum recontouring process will help your teeth become more visible and balance out a beautiful, aesthetic smile! It is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves reshaping or removing excess gum tissue with laser technology.

Smile Makeover

Our smile makeover is a personalised and comprehensive approach to address various cosmetic dental concerns to achieve your dream smile. Every aspect, from the shape and colour of your teeth to the alignment of your smile, is meticulously considered to craft the perfect result for you.
