COSMETIC SMILE ENHANCEMENTS
Change your smile, and renew your self confidence
Are you self-conscious about your smile?
Are stained, chipped, crooked or missing teeth and spaces between teeth eroding your self confidence?
Do you want a smile that will light up your face and boost your confidence?
COSMETIC DENTAL PROCEDURES INVOLVE THE FOLLOWING TREATMENTS
Instant Tooth Whitening
Recontouring of teeth
Composite restorations and build ups
Spaces between teeth
Picasso Laser Therapy
Smiles which are not in harmony with the facial features
A variety of dental defects can be corrected using the above procedures and procedures like:
RECONTOURING OF THE GUMS
Sometimes the natural contours of the gums are uneven and unsymmetrical producing an anaesthetic smile. With cosmetic dentistry, using our Picasso laser device these gums are recontoured to make them look more symmetrical, natural and aesthetically pleasing.
DEPIGMENTATION OF GUMS
Black and brown pigments are occasionally present on gums. Such pigments are removed to produce natural and pink aesthetic gums by using our Picasso Laser device.
Even normal smiles can be enhanced to give it that glamorous look.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
WHY AND WHEN ARE ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS REQUIRED?
Decay of the teeth (cavities) if left untreated, generally progress and gradually destroy a significant portion of the tooth before reaching the 'pulp' of the tooth. The pulp of the tooth is a thin soft tissue present in the tooth canals consisting of mainly nerves and blood vessels.
Once this infection reaches the pulp it gives rise to a common 'dental pain'. At this stage the tooth can only be saved by performing a root canal treatment. We use the latest equipment during Endodontic treatment to ensure successful root canal therapy.
WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?
In simple terms, root canal treatment is the removal of the infected soft tissue within the tooth and it’s replaced by an artificial inner 'filling' material. This procedure basically saves the tooth and eliminates dental pain.
THE IDEAL REPLACEMENT FOR
Keeping the 3 most important factors of form, function and aesthetics in mind, dental implants are the ideal solution for replacement of natural teeth. Whether you need to replace few or all of your teeth, you will notice a few striking benefits:
The ability to bite into and chew foods just like natural teeth is regained.
You can enjoy your favourite foods such as meats and nuts, as if you were using healthy, natural teeth.
Instantly reverses age. With missing teeth, the face has a sunken appearance and a person looks much older than he or she actually is.
With dental implants, this is reversed immediately, and a well balanced, natural and radiant smile is gained. This process alone would make one look at least 20 years younger.
Lifelong solution. Dental implants are a one-time procedure. Once done, they last a lifetime.
Successful replacement of teeth with implants is an extremely 'technique sensitive' process, requiring great expertise. An advanced titanium structure is anchored into the bone where the tooth is to be replaced. This structure acts like a support for the 'crown' or the artificial tooth. These mechanics are exactly similar to how a natural tooth anchors itself, and therefore, dental implants are the ideal replacement solution.
A great looking smile can boost your self confidence and have a positive impact on your life. Orthodontic treatment is the original smile makeover tool and you will be happy to know that you are never too old to take advantage of it.
But it is not all about looks:
Properly aligned teeth help you to bite, chew and even speak more effectively.
They are also easier to clean, which helps keep your mouth free of tooth decay and gum disease.
With the application of light, constant force, orthodontic appliances (braces) gently reshape bone and move teeth into better positions.
Once your orthodontic treatment is completed, it is extremely important to wear a retainer as directed. Because teeth naturally tend to drift back to their original positions which is the last thing you want after you have gone to the trouble of straightening your teeth. Wearing a retainer holds your teeth in their new position long enough for new bone and ligament to reform around them and helps keep your beautiful new smile looking good for a lifetime.
3D CBCT IMAGING
& DENTAL X-RAYS
IN HOUSE 3D CB CT SCAN
3D CBCT Scan machines add another dimension to implant technology. Their presence is vital for accurate planning and the placement of implants. They also help in the accurate evaluation of critical structures like nerves, roots, sinus etc., thereby eliminating any chances of failure occurring due to misdiagnoses and the risk of unforeseen injury to any important structures.
3D CBCT Scan full line are the latest addition in the world of dentistry, they have transformed the implant technology by leaps and bounds. For accurate planning and the placements of implants it is important that these machines are present.
WE use state-of-the-art radiographs by CARESTREAM. This device performs the highest quality peri apical and panoramic images of teeth, CT and micro-CT scans. Pictures taken in our radiology clinic are guarantee the highest image quality at the smallest radiation dose.
The so-called panorama is the basic image used for diagnosis in dental treatment. The special design of the device used at Integrated dental holdings guarantees that the radiation dose is minimal. In addition, the device has a special reduced radiation programme for children. Panoramic images of teeth taken in the our clinic are of very high quality. The results are available immediately and the patient may receive them either in print or on a CD.
CBCT 3D SCANS
Computer tomography examination produces three-dimensional images of the upper jaw and mandible in order to assess their condition. CT scans are usually used before implantation and bone regeneration.
Computed tomography is a completely painless and non-invasive examination.
The result is available within a few minutes Micro-CT imaging may be considered as a three-dimensional equivalent of periapical X-ray. It is most often used during complicated endodontic treatment (root canal treatment).
ZIRCONIUM CROWNS AND BRIDGES
In cases where implants are contraindicated, bridges (which are a number of units of crowns attached to one another) are used for the replacement of teeth. Artificial tints are deliberately incorporated in the ceramic to match the natural shade transitions of the adjacent teeth.
As a result, all crowns and bridges (artificial teeth) at our practice are closely resemble natural teeth and do not give a 'fake' appearance.

REPLACEMENT OF 'BLACK - LINE' CROWNS /
ARTIFICIAL LOOKING CROWNS:
In the older generation of crowns used for the anterior teeth were mostly ceramic fused to metal crowns, with a metal base coated by ceramic. One of the major drawback of such crowns is the unsightly black metal line seen along the border of the crown along with a mild metallic tint to the overall crown. At our practice, only metal-free ceramic crowns, either full ceramic crowns, zirconium crowns, or porcelain layered zirconium crowns, are used for all anterior teeth. In such crowns, not only does the metal appearance and black lines disappear but also, in combination with the right tints and translucencies are made to look like real natural teeth and blend beautifully with the adjacent teeth. In fact, it becomes almost impossible to distinguish cosmetic dentistry from a natural tooth.
CERAMIC VENEERS / METAL FREE CERAMIC CROWNS
All these treatment modalities used either individually or in combination with each other bring about the true magic of a dazzling smile transformation. All defects including, stained teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, excessively small teeth, excessively large teeth, surface defects on teeth, gaps between teeth, overall anaesthetic smile etc can not only be corrected but also the smile can be enhanced to glamorous proportions using veneers and metal free crowns. Even regular smiles can be enhanced by altering the shade and the smile line to bring it in harmony with the rest of the face.
