One of the greatest things that have attracted people to each other is a radiant smile. In other words, a smile speaks of your personality, appeal and confidence levels which take you a long way in life and career.
Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dentistry that seeks to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Cosmetic specialist, can bring smile on your face by doing whiten teeth, replace missing teeth, and repair chipped teeth through a variety of cosmetic dentistry options, including tooth bleaching, porcelain veneers, dental implants, bonding, dental crowns, and bridges.
A natural tooth does not grow like natural hairs or nails. So, the only way to effectively fix the appearance of a chipped tooth is through bonding of certain tooth-colored materials to the tooth. These resins are a paste to begin with, so they can be shaped and colored to look like the rest of the tooth. Once exposed to a certain wavelength of light, the resin hardens into a permanent plastic. These materials are exactly similar to the materials used for tooth-colored fillings.
Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the color and shine of the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Sometimes, bonding also is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede.
Besides the procedure has other advantage of getting completed in a single appointment. However, bonding procedure has its own limitations. After receiving a composite, a patient may experience post-operative sensitivity. Besides composites have a tendency to pick up stain with time. They can chip or break over time if they are abused. It is therefore essential to follow proper home care instructions and get regular professional cleanings to keep the restored teeth healthy and beautiful.

Veneers and laminates are another conservative approach to enhancing the look of your teeth. They are a thin shell made of porcelain or composite resin that is cemented to the front surface of the tooth. Like bonding, veneers are used to cover up discoloration, cracks and chipping, and to change the shape or size of your teeth. However, porcelain veneers outperform bonding with greater resilience and a greater resistance to stains and dulling. Also, they tend to look more natural than a bonded tooth.
Excessive Gingival Display: This can be a significant esthetic dilemma for many patients. The condition usually presents as incomplete exposure of crown portion of the tooth and a high lip line, which causes a "gummy smile". The cause is delayed migration of the gum margin apically during eruption. When full exposure of the crown portion of the tooth is achieved surgically, there is dramatic improvement in esthetics by the concomitant lengthening of the teeth and reduction of the gingival exposure.
Gingival depigmentation: If you are conscious of your smile due to the blackish appearance of the gums instead of the normal coral pink color, consider yourself to be a candidate for this cosmetic procedure. The condition is caused by excessive presence of certain pigment producing cells called melanocytes in the gum tissue. The treatment simply involves scraping of the superficial layer of the gum to remove the pigmentation. The results are evident within 7 days of healing.
