Why is cosmetic dentistry gaining popularity today?

Cosmetic dentistry helps you get that perfect smile you have always desired. If you feel embarrassed because of your stained, discoloured, crooked or misaligned teeth, you can turn to a cosmetic dentist for help. Cosmetic dentistry involves procedures that help enhance the appearance of your teeth and gums. It helps improve the size, shape and alignment of teeth, whilst improving the overall appearance of your smile.

Various types of treatments offered by a cosmetic dentist Mumbai include:

  • Teeth whitening: It is the least expensive and simplest of all cosmetic dentistry procedures. You can get your teeth bleached by a dentist to make your teeth whiter and brighter. Even those who are low on cash can get teeth whitening toothpastes, rinses, gels and strips from the dentist.
  • Dental bonding: In dental bonding, teeth coloured putty is applied to the teeth and hardened using laser light. The dentist then polishes, trims and shapes to give it the same look as natural teeth. The procedure is ideal for people who have chipped, crooked or incorrectly shaped teeth. Though the procedure is a short one and lasts for an hour, it is quite expensive.
  • Dental veneers: These are tooth coloured, wafer-thin porcelain shells covering the outer, front layer of the teeth. The dentist first removes half a millimetre of enamel from the tooth and then these shells are fixed on the teeth, completely changing its shape, size and colour. It is also an expensive affair, but lasts for a lifetime if you follow the best dental hygiene practices.

People who are very conscious of their appearance or those who want to secure a career in the hospitality or entertainment industry usually resort to cosmetic dentistry to enhance their looks and confidence. These industries are quite competitive, and a perfect smile can really give you an edge over the others.

Cosmetic Dentistry

While cosmetic dentists can manipulate the shape and size of teeth, the right dental hygiene practices can help improve the overall appearance as well as health of your teeth. So always make it a point to brush your teeth at least twice in a day, use floss, wash your mouth after meals and most important of all, visit your dentist Mumbai at least bi-annually in order to make sure that your pearly whites always sparkle!
