Smile Designing in Delhi

A warm and confident smile not only brings beauty to you but also positively embraces the people around you.

Unfortunately, having a dazzling dental feature is not true for everyone in the world.

For such situations, the proven techniques of smile design have been helpful in bringing about a phenomenal change in dental features.

What is smile designing? 

Smile design is a cosmetic dentistry surgery that improves the appearance and health of your teeth by repairing minor flaws. For a straighter, whiter, and more realistic-looking smile, it incorporates tailored treatment for a long-lasting result. Smile design in Delhi does not work by a single procedure, instead, includes a combination of procedures articulated to the need of the patient. 

The list can be detailed in the following table:

What dental treatments are considered cosmetic? 

Cosmetic treatment is a general term used for enhancing the features of body parts to get the most natural look. Cosmetic surgeries are performed on all parts of the body such as:

  •  Hair 
  • Nail 
  • Dentures 
  • Skin 
  • Abdomen 
  • Hip and chest 

Cosmetic dentistry is the area that is specialised in enhancing the dental aspects for a proportionate facial feature. A professional oral care program focuses on following key procedures for overall oral health.

Dental Inlays and Onlays 

Dental Inlays and Onlays are used when dental cavities are too large to be treated with a simple filling. These are cemented to the tooth cavity and are made either with gold or the colour of the tooth. The only difference between them is that onlays covers a greater area than inlays. These are used when either a simple filling is not enough to seal the cavity or a crown may be seen as too much to protect against dental decay. Your professional dentist will use inlays and onlays when these seem just the right tool to fill the cavity. 

Teeth Whitening 

Teeth tarnish and deteriorate over time as a result of food, beverages, medications, and personal activities like smoking. The process of teeth whitening includes coating the teeth, use of a bleaching solution, or use of certain toothpaste to get the same result in one to two weeks. The procedure can be carried out in a dental office or at home. Optimal results can be achieved in four weeks as the teeth whitening procedure works to whiten teeth by more than three shades over the course of two weeks. 

Dental Veneers 

Dental Veneers are crafted crowns that cover your natural teeth and are often composed of medical-grade ceramic. They can fix a variety of cosmetic issues, such as obvious gaps between teeth, cracked or damaged enamel, and crooked teeth, and they have an incredibly lifelike appearance. Using dental glue, the dentist places the veneer on the front of each tooth. 

Composite Bonding 

Composite bonding is another smile design procedure used to improve your dental features. Your dentist will use tooth-coloured resin during the procedure to alter the affected teeth’s size, shape, or colour. This is done in order to:

  • Hide tooth chips or cracks. 
  • Discolored teeth can be concealed. 
  • Fill up any gaps or voids between your teeth. 
  • Enhance the length of your teeth. 
  • Modify the appearance of your teeth.

Dental Implants 

Lost or damaged teeth can be replaced using dental implants. At the location of the missing tooth, the dentist places a tiny titanium screw into the jaw that acts as a support for a crown. The surrounding natural teeth can hardly tell these implants apart from them. The implant is firmly fixed in place once the bone and supporting tissue fuse to it. Patients must maintain strict oral hygiene both during and after the implant treatment in order to remove plaque and food particles from the region.

Gum Contouring 

This smile design procedure also focuses on shaping the gum for a more appealing smile. The gum contouring procedure removes excess gums either through a specialised tool or laser to get a more precise shape. The technique is also beneficial in preventing bacterial infections as well as slowing the progress of tooth decay. 

What are the steps involved in smile design? 

Smile designing includes many procedures and depending on the need or expectation of the patient, a particular procedure is carried out. In some cases, a combination of procedures is performed to get the desired result. The steps involved in a smile design includes:

Initial Assessment

During initial consultations with new patients, the dentist has the chance to learn more about the patients’ dental and medical history and learn more about their desire for a new smile. Photography images can be taken and shared with the patients to help them identify where they would like adjustments and to facilitate communication of smile principles. Your dentist may also perform a formal examination that involves an intra- and extraoral examination, periodontal analysis, and oral cancer screening for additional in-depth information obtained during the interview and via photographs. 

Procedures vary with the chosen method of treatment. A glimpse of the steps involved in some of the common procedures of smile design are detailed below. 

Teeth whitening process 

Professional teeth whitening procedures include the following steps. 

  • Anti-hypersensitive tooth fluoride toothpaste is used to clean and polish the teeth. 
  • Gingival shield can be used to expose the teeth and protect soft tissue 
  • Tooth whitening agents are applied to your teeth. 
  • The tooth whitening gel enters your enamel and lifts the stains. 
  • After everything has been cleaned and taken out, you can admire your sparkling new grin. 
  • Tooth whitening takes about 1 hour and the results can last for up to 5 to 7 years.

Dental implants 

Initially your teeth, gums, and jawbone will be evaluated. 

Depending on the type of implant, your surgeon will: 

  • Cut the gum to expose the jawbone underneath. 
  • In order to insert the implant post, deep holes will be bored into the bone. 
  • Until the permanent tooth can be linked to the implant, you can choose to cover the gap with a temporary, removable denture for aesthetic reasons. 

Dental veneers 

  • On the day of the treatment the dentist will remove a tiny amount of enamel from each tooth. 
  • The teeth are then moulded in putty to make the veneer. 
  • On occasion, specialised 3D mapping technologies are used to make the veneer imprints internally. 
  • While the patient waits for the lab to complete the permanent veneers, temporary veneers are manufactured and placed. 
  • The dentist will use an acidic gel to dissolve minerals on the surface of each permanent tooth when they are placed, creating a rough surface for the veneer to adhere to. 
  • The veneers are quickly cemented in place using a special light to hasten the hardening process. The porcelain veneers will bind to the patient’s teeth in a matter of minutes after being set. 

Composite bonding 

During your dental bonding procedure, your dentist will: 

  • Select a shade of composite resin material that matches the colour of your natural teeth. 
  • The surface of your tooth is prepared so that the bonding material will stick to the tooth. 
  • After this the resin material is applied and moulded to the desired shape.
  • Then the composite resin is hardened onto the surface of the tooth with a special curing light. 
  • For the final touch-up, your dentist will make necessary final adjustments and polish your tooth for a natural-looking shine.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 

How long does smile design last? 

Smile design uses strong materials with robust tools and techniques that give a permanent result. However, some techniques need to have a touch-up after 10 to 15 years especially if your smile design was done at an early age when the teeth are still growing. 

Is smile design safe? 

When performed by an expert dental specialist, the smile design procedure is completely safe and provides a long-lasting result. However, from the patient’s side, care should be taken during the recovery period for proper healing after the procedure. 

What is digital smile designing? 

As the name suggests digital smile design (DSD) is used to design and edit the patient’s smile digitally. A digital prototype of the patient’s new smile design is created and presented to them before the actual treatment process begins. The technique is advantageous in meeting the final expectation of the patient and determining the treatment method.

How long does a dental implant take from start to finish?

The three stages that make up the dental implant procedure can vary depending on the individual. Usually, it takes 5 to 8 months to complete the process. This is a little different for persons having full-mouth dentures which are usually longer. Those obtaining a brand-new set of teeth may find the process to be quicker.
