What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Depending on who you ask, you will get different responses to the term "cosmetic dentistry". Me being a doctor would tell you - "Cosmetic Dentistry is defined as the branch of dentistry that comprises of multiple specialities namely: Orthodontics, Prosthodontics, Endodontics, Conservative & Restorative Dentistry. Cosmetic Dentistry brings about the treatment protocol of combining these various branches of dentistry to bring out a change in the outward appearance of the patient."

Yeah, that is not what you want to hear. The most commonly accepted explanation as to what is cosmetic dentistry is "Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth & gums."

What dental branches/ procedures does cosmetic dentistry consist of?

Under the Cosmetic Dentistry umbrella almost every branch of dentistry comes. Depending on the clients situation, habits & requirements I decide what treatment plan will bring him the best result for his situation. The goal is not to only get a good looking smile but to get a smile which will work for a person in the long term.

What is the importance of a Good Looking Smile & Teeth?

Even though the thought of beauty is different for everyone, there is an accepted concept that the first thing that most people notice about someone is their smile.

This is due to a very simple reason and that is confidence. Having beautiful teeth is directly linked to increased confidence in a person. This increase in confidence will cause you to smile more and radiate that confidence.

Even though having beautiful teeth is not a compulsion, the increase in vanity in today's world due to social media and networking is hard to get away from. You may get the best clothes and the best hair styling done but if the smile fails then it can ruin a lot in a picture.

No matter how good looking or confident a person may be, a bad smile can spoil the chance at the perfect first impression.

Now you may be thinking "Wow, now i want to know if i need Cosmetic Dentistry?"

Even-though I think that everyone should get a Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation, let me keep it real. It is upto You to decide whether You want it or not. I can give You a few reasons that I have seen clients come to me with, They are as follows:

  • Oddly Shaped Teeth,

  • Teeth not in Alignment,

  • Discoloured Teeth,

  • Worn Out Teeth,

  • Missing Teeth,

  • Not satisfied with Smile,

  • Just feel like getting a new Smile.

Whatever the reasoning, it does not hurt to get some professional advice about it. Cosmetic Dentistry is virtually painless, surprisingly affordable, looks natural and can greatly improve your life. My clinic offers a free transformation picture to clients (kindly email us at

Now that You have decided about getting Cosmetic Dentistry, what is the procedure?

Like mentioned before, Cosmetic Dentistry is not a single procedure but a combination of multiple dental procedures. Depending on your dental requirements and your aspirations, I provide a treatment plan which will provide You not only a Beautiful Smile but also a Reliable, long term solution for you.

But I think that is not the answer You are looking for. So to elaborate kindly check our the next section where some details regarding what all goes into a beautiful smile are provided.
