The twenty-first century associated with immense progress in the medical sciences and increased pressure of looking good owing to the reach of internet in the form of insta-influencers, cosmetic dentistry is at its peak and is expected to grow even further. People also experience some injuries during sports or accidents leading to either complete loss or great damage to the teeth besides extreme pain in the jaws, or headache. This is where people come to the dentist for the purpose of cosmetics or full mouth dental rehabilitation, which are two separate things.
Is full-mouth rehabilitation just a smile makeover?
The answer to this question is partially yes/no. Cosmetics dentistry include things like smile makeovers to improve a person’s smile, teeth brightening by bonding or veneers, and shaping the tooth by filling it or extracting its enamel. This is where we take the difference between cosmetic dentistry and a dental rehabilitation. The latter besides being cosmetic on one side, is also concerned with restorative dentistry. Now, as simple as it may sound it involves the thorough work on several dental issues that prevent your smile to look good. It involves taking care of the crown that protects your teeth, porcelain veneers that resolves the issue of several teethes occurring at the same place, dental implants, etc.
Any large cavity present on the gums that are too big to be filled up needs to be fitted with a crown. The material used for this purpose can be metal, alloy, porcelain, ceramic, or a combination of these.
A significant proportion of the population suffers from the yellowing of teeth. Thanks to some foods and drinks, that affect the natural shine of the teeth. The procedure of teeth brightening involves removing the film formed on the enamel due to the consumption of certain foods. This is followed by the whitening process that may take anywhere between half an hour to more than one hour depending upon the type and nature of the stains your teeth has.
Dental implants are placed into the jawbone so that they can act as the roots of the missing teeth. These may be the right option if your teeth are missing, or the jawbone has reached its full growth. All these options can really improve the appearance of your smile and restore the health of your oral cavity. Nevertheless, their prices vary according to the place and the type of material used to prepare the same.
