  5. TEETH WHITENING OR BLEACHING: Bleaching is a common and popular chemical process used to whiten teeth. Some people get their teeth bleached to make stains disappear, while other just want a whiter shade. Discoloration occurs in the enamel and can be caused by medication, coffee, tea and cigarettes. Discoloration also can be hereditary or due simply to getting older. Typically, whitening at home takes two to four weeks, depending on the desired shade you wish to achieve. Whitening in the office may call for one or more 45-minute to one-hour visits to your dentist's office.
  6. TOOTH BONDING: Bonding is tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of teeth. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts several years. Bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than other forms of restoration. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities. Additionally, it can be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.
  7. VENEERS: Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic placed over the front teeth to change the color or shape of your teeth. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Little or no anesthesia is needed. Veneers are used to treat some of the same problems as bonding. Porcelain veneers require more than one visit because they are fabricated in a laboratory. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding.
  8. ZIRCONIA CROWN: Zirconia Crown is very popular in all ceramic crowns. This crown is worn to improve the appearance of the tooth which has become stained or disfigured for a long time. They are very easy to wear and long lasting. Zirconium crowns and bridges can be used anywhere in your mouth because of its strength. It could be resist the biting pressure of the front teeth like beck teeth grinding. It is so close to look likes your natural teeth so it can be used without any dental work. It can be fixed by using regular dental cement. It is really a strong substance that can endure wear and tear of regular use. You will not find any differences with natural looks and it reflects light the same way. If your new crown keep in front of the normal light than it could be refluxed the light.
  9. INLAYS AND ONLAYS: Inlays and onlays, also called indirect fillings, are made from gold, porcelain, or composite materials and fill decayed or damaged teeth. Dental fillings are molded into place during an office visit; however, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory and bonded into place by your dentist. The filling is called an “inlay” when the material is bonded within the center of a tooth; it is called an “onlay” when the filling includes one or more points of the tooth or covers the biting surface. Inlays and onlays preserve as much healthy tooth as possible and are an alternative to crowns.

  13. AN OVERVIEW OF COSMETIC DENTISTRY: At present, the scope of cosmetic dentistry is very wide and covers the following special areas of dentistry; bonding, tooth whitening, restorations of tooth color, dental implants, porcelain veneers and dental fillings. Each of the above treatments further has its own subdivisions in terms of special techniques employed and equipment that is used. It is also important to note that there are new branches of cosmetic dentistry that have emerged in the recent years. Since cosmetic dentistry is an integral part of dentistry and can broadly be classified as a branch of the same, then by extension, it can be said that new branches of dentistry have been formed directly out of the development of cosmetic dentistry. Two of the new branches of dentistry that are worth mentioning at this point are endodontics and orthodontics. The people that are trained in these two branches and who practice the same are referred to as endodontists and orthodontists respectively. Contrary to what most people are likely to believe, given the newness of these branches, not ever dentist automatically qualifies to be called a cosmetic dentist. Before one can officially be allowed to use the title, they have to undergo full training on the same as a special postgraduate study course.
