What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a dental treatment to improve the aesthetics of your smile so you can get an attractive smile that allows you to interact with confidence.
Different cosmetic dentistry treatments
Porcelain veneers for a flawless smile
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that fit upon natural teeth to hide surface imperfections. They help cover several cosmetic issues and give you a radiant smile.
These veneers are custom created in dental laboratories after our skilled dentists take an impression of your teeth along with 3D images. The shells are then created according to the smile designed with the help of the latest machinery and software. With porcelain, it is easy to match the colour of these shells to your natural teeth or even whiten them if desired.
To fit the veneers, our dentists will roughen up the surface of your teeth and fit temporary veneers until the customised ones are manufactured. Once ready, the porcelain shells will be bonded to your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers require no more care than regular teeth do and can last up to 15 years with a basic oral hygiene routine.
These veneers are a permanent solution to unsightly teeth and can be replaced but not removed.
These veneers are made of composite resin that can be coloured to match your existing tooth colour or changed, so your smile is whiter.
The resin is mixed by our dentists in the clinic and applied in very thin layers onto your tooth’s surface to cover imperfections or change the shape and colour of your natural teeth.
Like porcelain veneers, composite veneers, too, require minimal care though they do not last long and need to be repaired or replaced every few years.
Since the resin is applied onto your tooth’s enamel without any modifications, this is a reversible procedure.
Teeth can lose their natural whiteness due to advancing age or get stains on them because of lifestyle choices, such as smoking or drinking red wine and coffee.
For people who are looking to whiten their teeth, Complete Dental offers Zoom in-chair whitening treatment that can lighten your teeth by several shades in just one hour. This treatment can last between six months and a couple of years, depending on the care taken and your food and drink choices.
For those patients who prefer to whiten their teeth gradually or within the comfort of their own homes, we provide prescription strength whitening gel that needs to be applied for half an hour daily over a period of two weeks.
At-home kits need to be touched up or re-done more frequently than in-chair teeth whitening treatments do.
Types of dental implants
Endosteal implants are implants that are fused with the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They have a post that is inserted into the jaw and allowed to integrate into the bone matter. Once this has happened over a few weeks, an abutment is placed into the gum tissue on top of the post. The gum tissue is manoeuvred to heal around the abutment, so its top is showing above the gum.
Once this, too, has healed, a custom-created prosthetic tooth, called the crown, is fitted upon the abutment, and this implant can then feel and function just like the real tooth.
These implants are possible on patients that have a healthy jaw with enough bone mass to support the implant.
For patients that have small or weak jaws and are ineligible for a bone graft, subperiosteal implants can work well. These are implants that are fitted just below the gum tissue and not on the jawbone. In this type of dental implant, the prosthetic teeth are mounted on a frame which is then fixed with posts to the gums.
Zygomatic implants are not as common as endosteal or subperiosteal implants. They are only fitted in the upper jaw with long implants that anchor the frame to the cheekbone. Like subperiosteal implants, they are used in patients that have inadequate bone mass or structure.
Single implants are ideal for people who are missing just one tooth due to trauma or disease. In most cases, endosteal implants are used, with subperiosteal implants being used in cases where the bone mass is insufficient for an implant.
All-On-4 dental arches are the best solution for people who have lost multiple teeth in their upper or lower jaw.
A complete set of teeth is mounted upon a frame which is then fitted onto the jaw with the help of four implants that support the entire arch.

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

How are dental implants different from dentures?
Dental implants are a permanent, fixed solution to missing teeth. Dentures are removable prosthetics that can be fitted into the mouth with hooks that are anchored to any remaining teeth.
Dental implants look, feel, and function just like real teeth, while people who wear dentures could say that they move or are uncomfortable and ill-fitting.
Dental implants do not need replacement, while dentures do need replacement if they wear out or any more teeth are lost.
Dentures require extra care when it comes to cleaning and maintenance, while implants require the same care as real teeth do.
Who needs cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the ideal solution for people who are self-conscious about unsightly teeth and feel their personal and professional relationships are getting affected due to them not smiling or talking as freely as they could if they had an attractive smile.
Who needs dental implants?
Dental implants are the perfect replacement for missing teeth or those teeth which are so diseased they need to be removed. Since leaving gaps between teeth can lead to further complications, it is advisable to fill the gap with an implant as soon as possible.
Why are artificial teeth and veneers made of porcelain?
Porcelain is a material that contains natural minerals. These minerals have a sheen to them that is similar to that of natural teeth. Porcelain can be coloured to match the shade of natural teeth and can be shaped any way, which is what makes it perfect for creating dental veneers and crowns.

Why is dental health important?
Good dental health is important for a number of reasons. A healthy mouth is a clean one that has minimal presence of bacteria. If not removed properly, these bacteria can form tartar and plaque, which eats into the dental enamel causing caries and other more serious problems such as periodontal disease.
Since the mouth is directly connected to the digestive and respiratory tracts, bacteria in the mouth can find their way and cause general health problems.
