Gum Re contouring
Professional tooth whitening or bleaching can get your smile looking its best. It is one of the most common procedures of dental cosmetics. It brightens teeth that are discolored, stained, or have been darkened because of Lifestyle and the aging process. Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth, such as drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks and red wine or smoking. Any tooth, even those that have had root canal surgery, can receive bleaching treatment. This can be done by a dentist in the dental clinic or at home.
There are two types of tooth stains:
INTRINSIC STAINS (Intrinsic stains)
This means the stain occurs from within the tooth. This type of stain cannot be removed by brushing and flossing and sometimes bleaching may not be effective. Some causes of intrinsic staining are injury to the tooth, certain medications (such as tetracycline) taken during tooth formation stage or an excess fluoride ingested during the formation of teeth.
EXTRINSIC STAINS (Extrinsic stains)
This is staining of the tooth surface. Some sources of extrinsic stains are cigarettes, cigars, paan masala , coffee, tea, or foods that contain a lot of spices. This type of staining can sometimes be removed by good tooth brushing habits or by professional oral prophylaxis (scaling).
Dental Vineers / Laminates
These are wafer-thin shells of tooth-colored material that are fixed to the front surface of the teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance. They can, not only close the spaces but also can change the shape, shade, and position of the teeth. In fact dental veneers are for your teeth what false fingernails are for your hands!!!
