Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry is a field that involves various procedures to improve the color, appearance, and aesthetics of teeth and gums for cosmetic purposes. The cosmetic dentistry procedures are as follows:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Tooth Gem Attachment
  • Gingival Depigmentation Procedure

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a method used to restore the natural whiteness of teeth or achieve a whiter appearance. It can help eliminate discoloration and give you whiter teeth.

The whitening procedure is performed by a dentist who removes stains from the surface of the teeth and makes them brighter. Teeth whitening is different from the polishing procedure done after a dental cleaning. During teeth whitening, the natural shade of the teeth can be lightened by 2-3 shades.

Teeth whitening can be done in a clinical setting by the dentist through an in-office whitening treatment, or it can be done by the patient at home using custom-made transparent trays with whitening gels containing lower concentrations of whitening agents.

Tooth Crystal Application

Tooth crystals, also known as tooth gems, are a popular choice for those who want to add sparkle to their smile in recent years. Tooth crystals are applied to the tooth surface to create a difference in the appearance of the tooth and the person’s smile.

Tooth crystals, or tooth gems, are not easily detached from the tooth surface and can be easily reattached if they fall off. This makes them an advantageous cosmetic dentistry procedure that can be applied at any age.

Gingival Depigmentation Procedure

Gingival depigmentation procedure is performed when the gums have a dark color. This condition is usually caused by melanin pigmentation or the accumulation of other pigments in the gum tissues. Dark-colored gums can be a cosmetic concern and negatively impact a person’s smile.

The gingival depigmentation procedure aims to reduce or completely eliminate the dark pigments in the gum tissues to achieve a lighter color. These treatments can be used alone or in combination, depending on the individual’s needs and preferences.
