Dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person's teeth, gums and/or bite.
Having to visit a dental clinic is a horrendous feeling not only for children, but even for older people. This is mainly because of the thoughts of all the blood, injections and pain going through the mind from their previous visits.
But nowadays dental clinics are expanding their services to a whole new level. Cosmetic Dentistry is one such interesting service which is aiming at improving facial beauty.
According to wikipedia, cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person's teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.
Cosmetic dentistry can rectify gap between the teeth by not taking much time. It can also alter variations in the size of the teeth to enhance the appearance. It can also alter the difference in the alignment (forward or backward inclination) to give a uniform straight teeth arrangement. All kinds of appearance problems relating to teeth can be solved by cosmetic dentistry.
The variations in the sizes are managed by increasing the size of smaller one by using a material called composite. This material has the same color of the teeth and is used to fill inside decayed or irregular teeth. The sizing is monitored in a computer screen during the process.
Even a severely decayed tooth can be corrected. That is the impact of cosmetic dentistry over the facial appearance nowadays.
