Smile Designing

If you've ever wondered why so many individuals have such perfect smiles, you might be surprised to find out how many of them have had cosmetic dental work done.Smile designing is a multifaceted Dental art work that incorporates a combination of some or many of various treatment modalities namely fixed / removable orthodontics, Veneers, Crowns, Gum Reshaping, White Fillings etc.. Thus, this is an area of dentistry that seeks to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. We, as our company logo suggests, expertise in Smile Makeovers. Cosmetic Dentist like Dr. A.K Lal, can whiten teeth, replace missing teeth, and repair chipped teeth or completely change your smile & profile through a variety of cosmetic dental procedures.

Dental Bonding
The term "dental bonding" can refer to a number of related dental techniques. In general, after a tooth's surface has been properly prepared, a white colored dental filling material is bonded onto the tooth. Dental bonding might be utilized as a way to improve the appearance of a cosmetic defect found on the surface of a tooth, to replace tooth structure that has chipped away or broken, or to repair damage caused by tooth decay. At an extreme, this technique can be used to resurface the entire front side of a tooth so to improve its cosmetic appearance. As a benefit, when compared with the other cosmetic dentistry techniques reviewed on this page dental bonding can be relatively inexpensive and is usually a "completed in one visit" type dental procedure. As a disadvantage, dental bonding material has a tendency to stain as time passes and in general isn't as lasting or durable a treatment as other cosmetic dental procedures. However, and one more point in the plus column, if dental bonding does chip or break it can usually be easily patched or repaired.



Diastema Closure
A diastema is a space between front teeth. Diastemas are closed by orthodontics or restoration. A highly successful technique is addition of composite. A space which is too large and closed with composite results in teeth that are esthetically too wide and orthodontics is recommended. Space closure requires placement of composite two adjacent teeth. Placement of composite onto one tooth can be done it proper tooth dimensions allow it.



White Fillings
Thanks to advances in modern dental materials and techniques, dentists have more ways to create pleasing, natural-looking smiles. Dental researchers are continuing their often decades-long work developing materials, such as ceramics and polymer compounds that look more like natural teeth. As a result, dentists and patients today have several choices when it comes to selecting materials to repair missing, worn, damaged or decayed teeth. These new materials have not eliminated the usefulness of more traditional dental materials, such as gold, base metal alloys and dental amalgam. That’s because the strength and durability of traditional dental materials continue to make them useful for situations, such as fillings in the back teeth where chewing forces are greatest



Enamel Shaping
Like its name suggests, enamel shaping refers to the process of contouring natural teeth to achieve better appearance. It can be employed to adjust the slight irregular shape caused by too many or uneven teeth. It can also correct the length of your eye teeth. Because enamel shaping involves modifying teeth by only removing or contouring enamel, some other procedures are sometimes needed in conjunction with it, such as ordering braces from a specialist in orthodontics.This painless procedure, sometimes also along with bonding, can give immediate results. However you should be cautioned before diving into it because enamel can not be restored once removed.



Porcelain Veneer
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is bonded onto the front surface of a tooth so to improve its cosmetic appearance. A porcelain veneer can be an ideal way to make a cosmetic change for a tooth. Compared to dental bonding, porcelain veneers usually look more life like and they have the added benefit of resisting staining well. As a disadvantage, porcelain veneers are typically fairly expensive and if used in the wrong application can be prone to breaking. Unlike dental bonding, if a porcelain veneer has broken typically the whole veneer must be replaced. It usually cannot be patched or repaired. If you already have crowns on your front teeth, replacement with all porcelain jacket crowns may give you a more natural, attractive appearance. Or think about cosmetic repositioning as an alternative to orthodontics with the placement of porcelain veneers.



Cosmetic Repostioning
Porcelain veneers and crowns are extremely lifelike and hold their brilliance, unlike bonding which often appears bulky or fake. Although porcelain is an extremely translucent material, it is also very strong. Porcelain veneers and crowns are permanent restorations, and they can be expected to last for many years. Also, there are no food restrictions - once they are cemented you can eat normally (apples, corn on the cob, etc.) - porcelain simply covers the imperfections in your own smile! Porcelain jacket crowns and laminate veneers both require two office visits. At the first appointment we remove any old bonding and prepare the teeth. We also take impressions and choose the shade and shape of the porcelain. When you leave the office, temporary bonding is used to cover the prepared teeth. Approximately one week later, the porcelain veneers or crowns are permanently cemented at the second appointment.They are often used to fix gaps between teeth, or cover stained or irregular teeth. This procedure is usually not reversible because a very thin surface of enamel is removed to give room for the shells.



All Porcelain Crowns
All Porcelain Crowns can provide the same sort of major cosmetic changes that porcelain veneers can make. However, unlike porcelain veneers that only cover over the front sides of teeth, All Porcelain Crowns cup over and encase the entire aspect of a tooth which lies above the gum line. In comparison to porcelain veneers, All Porcelain Crowns are stronger and more durable but because making one involves trimming away a significant amount of tooth structure they usually aren't the best choice for making a cosmetic change for a tooth, unless the tooth also requires the non-cosmetic benefits the crown can provide. Like porcelain veneers, there is typically a fair amount of cost involved when All Porcelain Crowns are made.



Dental Jewellery
Teeth jewellery is a brilliant way to add sparkles to your smile and stand out of the crowd. Teeth jewellery (skyce) offered at our clinic is made and certified in the EU, and is available in two colours: "crystal" and "sapphire blue". During a painless procedure, a dentist fixes a jewel on the tooth surface. The jewel does not damage tooth tissues and has no side effects – except for the increased charm of your smile! Call it an oral fashion statement to stand out among ordinary mortals or simply an effort to blend in with the bold and the beautiful. Skyce is putting an extra sparkle into more and more smiles. Skyce jewels are applied to the labial surfaces of upper anterior teeth.The trend is catching up with males, especially those heading towards foreign destinations for study or leisure. However, not many girls are visiting clinics and enquiring about tooth jewellery. But it is only a matter of time before "Skyce" acquires universal appeal. If somebody thinks he or she was better off without tooth jewellery, it can be easily removed without any side effects on the dental tooth structure as the procedure is non-invasive. What's more, tooth jewellery can be fixed again at a later stage.
