WHAT IS COSMETIC DENTISTRY?
It is a term used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums and/or smile.
WHAT PROCEDURES ARE INCLUDED IN COSMETIC DENTISTRY?
1. COSMETIC FILLINGS Cosmetic fillings match with the natural teeth. Thus, they improve smiles by camouflaging cavities / decay. These fillings are free from mercury (unlike silver fillings) and they bond chemically too.
2. LUMINEERS These are a type of veneers which can be made extremely thin – only .3 mm in thickness. This means no anesthesia, no temporaries and virtually no chance of a root canal or post treatment sensitivity.
3. ENAMELOPLASTY Tooth reshaping removes parts of the enamel to improve the appearance of the tooth. It may be used to correct a small chip, or to alter the length, shape or position of teeth; it can be used to correct crooked or excessively long teeth. The removed enamel is irreplaceable.
4. DENTAL CROWNS A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded permanently to the tooth using a dental cement.
a) Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns (PFMs): Porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns have a metal shell on which is fused a veneer of porcelain in a high heat oven. The metal provides strong compression and tensile strength, and the porcelain gives the crown a white tooth-like appearance, suitable for front teeth restorations. These crowns are often made with a partial veneer that covers only the aspects of the crown that are visible. The remaining surfaces of the crown are bare metal. A variety of metal alloys containing precious metals and base metals can be used. The porcelain can be color matched to the adjacent teeth.
b) All-Ceramic Crowns All varieties of crowns can also be fabricated out of ceramic materials, such as in CAD/CAM Dentistry or traditionally in a dental laboratory setting. CAD/CAM technology can allow for the immediate, same day delivery of these types restorations which are milled out of blocks of solid porcelain which matches the shade or color of the patients teeth. Traditionally, all-ceramic restorations have been made off site in a dental laboratory either out of feldspathic porcelains or pressed ceramics. This indirect method of fabrication involves molds and temporaries, but can yield quite beautiful end-results if communication between the laboratory and the dentist is sound. The greatest difference between these two differing modalities lies in the fact that the CAD/CAM route does not require temporization, while the laboratory-fabricated route does. Some argue that this lack of temporization can result in a decreased need for root canal therapy, as there is no temporary leakage between visits.
