Cosmetic Dentistry

Originally dentistry focused on oral hygiene, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral diseases. Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry which focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, mouth, and smile.
Technological advancements in cosmetic dentistry have made it possible for dentists to address a wide range of challenges. Two of the latest trends aimed at creating a more attractive appearance are smile makeovers and full mouth reconstruction.
Cosmetic dentistry may also provide restorative benefits. Previously, most dental fillings were composed primarily of gold, amalgam, and other materials that left visible dark spots on the teeth. Today, dental fillings may fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry, because you can select fillings made of porcelain or composite materials that closely match the color of your teeth, thus maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth and smile.smile makeover improves the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, dental implants, and teeth whitening.Full mouth reconstruction involves advanced restorative treatment designed to address severe wear of the teeth, pain, and other functional problems. These include problems with the occlusion. Full mouth reconstruction frequently involves several dentists who focus on their specific areas of expertise in order to obtain the best outcome.
Beautify your smile and appearance with cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures at Rahman and Rahman include:
Dental Fillings- This traditional procedure can also be included in the category of cosmetic dentistry when porcelain and composite resin materials are used to provide a tooth-like appearance.
Bonding- The repair of chipped or broken teeth may be done through a procedure called bonding. A dental composite material which is the same color as the enamel is applied to the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured, and polished, making the crack or chip invisible.

Teeth Whitening- This is perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure. Teeth are often stained from smoking, food, drink (coffee, tea, or red wine), or poor oral hygiene. Bleaching the teeth can enhance the appearance of your smile.

Dental Veneers- Plastic or porcelain laminates bonded to the surface of a tooth to replace chips and cracks will improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening.

Dental Implants- These are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as abutments to replace missing teeth. Porcelain crowns are placed over these implants. The result is not only an enhanced smile, but also a more youthful appearance, since missing teeth cause the face to collapse, making you look older.

Cosmetic dentistry offers many options for people who are unhappy with their smile. If you are one of these people, we encourage you to come visit us for a free consultation so that we can enhance your smile.

What is a Smile Makeover
A Smile Makeover comprises cosmetic and restorative procedures that will enhance your smile and meet your esthetic goals. Procedures may include teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, dental crowns, dental implants, orthodontics, oral maxillofacial surgery and periodontal surgery to re-contour the gums.
Oral Health Evaluation
Prior to the treatment plan your oral health must be evaluated. If your evaluation reveals that you have oral conditions such as a misaligned bite (malocclusion) or gum disease, it is important for you to undergo orthodontic and periodontal treatment before your Smile Makeover.
Smile Makeover- The Process
When planning a Smile Makeover all aspects of the patient’s facial appearance are considered. These include the skin tone, hair color, teeth, gums, and lips to develop a customized smile. The resulting improvements are as follows:
Tooth Color
Silver or amalgam dental fillings can be replaced with natural, tooth-colored composite restorations and laser teeth whitening can improve the color of stained teeth. Tooth color and shading are important considerations during the evaluation of and preparation for various procedures, including porcelain veneers and dental implants.

Straight Teeth

Crooked, overlapping, or gaps between teeth can be straightened when necessary through orthodontics and improved with porcelain veneers.

All your teeth

Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants or partial dentures

A perfect smile

Uneven teeth can be bonded to improve their appearance. Periodontal surgery can be done to correct a gummy smile which will improve the overall look of your smile.

Anti-aging solutions

An aging face can be improved or rejuvenated with certain procedures which fall under the category of Facial Aesthetics. This includes Botox and collagen injections to mention a few. Rahman and Rahman has links with experts in this field to ensure that your Smile Makeover is complete in every category.

Maintaining Your Smile Makeover
Cosmetic procedures carried out for the smile makeover need to be maintained. Teeth whitening may be done after two years (depending on the patients lifestyle and habits) to maintain the color of the teeth. Porcelain veneers may chip or break off and may need to be replaced. Permanent bonding may stain and require replacement. Dental crowns may need to be replaced after10 – 15 years.

Preview of your Smile Makeover
Before and after photos of other patients who have had Smile Makeovers offer samples of the results you may expect to see. The photos may also give you an idea of the quality of work performed by your cosmetic dentist.
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and fill it with plaster to form an exact model of your teeth. The plaster can then be reshaped by trimming away excess areas or enlarging areas that require more volume. Dentists use study models to show you every aspect of the changes you can expect to see with your makeover. Dental lab technicians also use study models as guides for fabricating makeover materials like crowns or veneers.
