Cosmetic Dentistry

There has been a tremendous change in the way dentistry is used these days. With the technological advancements in dentistry, it is really easy to improve defects in teeth and make one’s smile beautiful and attractive. Cosmetic dentistry refers to those treatments which are done to enhance or beautify one’s teeth and smile.Such treatments have now become affordable as well as quick and painless. Cosmetic dentistry includes treatments like bridges and crowns, porcelain veneers, tooth whitening, implants, Invisalign (clear braces) and many others. Cosmetic treatments can be used to:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Repair damaged teeth
  • Fill spaces in between teeth
  • Change the shape and alignment of teeth
  • Replace old dental treatments

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are quite popular with people today because they are a simpler way to improve crooked or out-of-shape teeth. They are made of shells of ceramic, and are very thin in composition. These veneers bond directly with the surface of the original tooth, making it undetectable. So whether you have crooked or stained teeth or have a gap between them, this procedure will erase all of them and help you achieve that beautiful smile you always wanted.

In comparison to other restorative materials, porcelain resembles white tooth enamel the most, making it the ideal material for veneers. After the bonding with the original teeth, these veneers take on the natural color of the underlying teeth. They hence become virtually undetectable, in addition to their resistance to various kinds of stains like cigarettes, coffee etc.

The Procedure

The teeth are slightly buffed in order to allow the added thickness of the veneers. Then a mold of the teeth is taken and sent to the lab for fabrication, which would be ready in one to two weeks. Once the veneer is made, the color is determined and the tooth is cleaned with specified chemicals to create a bond. A special cement is placed between the teeth and the veneer and a visible light beam is used to harden the cement. After this treatment, care of the teeth is to be taken as usual, with no specific precautions, enabling you to enjoy a new and care-free smile.

Teeth Whitening

If your teeth have become stained or discolored over a period of time and you want them to look whiter, Boost! is the way to go. The bleaching process of Boost! is ideal for anyone who needs immediate result. The Boost! technology offers you the convenience of getting your teeth in its original white color within just over an hour. Boost! whitening uses a revolutionary gel, which breaks up the discoloration of the teeth resulting from tobacco, tea or coffee, and gives you that smile you have always wanted. The whitening process is painless and hence is the safest dental procedure available and is recommended by most dentists.

Implants (Applicable in general as well as cosmetic dentistry)

Dental Implants come very handy to replace missing teeth. These implants can help avoid a lot of problems associated with missing teeth like depreciation of chewing ability, ‘sunken facial look’, jaw joint problems etc. In addition to this, implants are a non-removable procedure, which makes it a fixed and far more convenient option in comparison to dentures. Implants are also easy to use and in long term, are a healthy option for people with missing teeth.

The Procedure

The artificial teeth are attached to the top of the implant, which, in turn, is surgically attached to the jaw bone. This helps in concealing the missing tooth with an undetectable replacement. A series of implants is known as a fixed bridge. The surgical implant heals in approximately six months, before the artificial teeth are installed and the procedure is complete.


Invisalign is a breakthrough technology, which enables straightening of teeth without the use of braces. Invisalign straightens teeth using removable see-through aligners, which move the teeth to a straighter position step by step. These aligners will be custom-made, and the straightening of the teeth will be planned by the dentist, so that each action is predefined. As we replace each aligner, your teeth will move step by step, until they are straightened into the planned position. The aligners are changed approximately every two weeks and the teeth on an average take one year to set to the final position.

The advantages of this technology are that they are comfortable, invisible and easy to remove for oral hygiene. The aligners can be removed while eating and brushing your teeth, so that dental hygiene can be maintained at all times. Invisalign frees you of the attention that braces bring to your face when straightening your teeth. Being invisible, people will hardly notice if you have worn the aligners. Also, the absence of wires or metal bands ensures that food particles and plaque does not build up and proper hygiene can be followed.








General & Preventive Dentistry

Teeth and gums require constant care so that there is no decay and they are maintained for a long times. Oral health can be maintained only through regular visits to dentists, who can then take the requisite steps to prevent decay and reduce dental problems. Treatments for regular care of teeth and gums and prevention of decay are categorized under general and preventive dentistry. A detailed consultation with a dentist is advised at least twice a year for a lifelong healthy and beautiful smile. Treatments like fillings, implants, root canal, dentures, periodontal treatments etc are included in general and preventive dentistry. General and preventive dentistry is used to:

  • Maintain good oral health
  • Prevent decay of teeth
  • Repair damaged teeth

Porcelain bridge and crown

Our teeth play a vital role in maintaining a proper alignment of the mouth. In case one or more are lost, this alignment goes haywire, and there is pressure on adjoining teeth as well as gums. Hence replacement of lost teeth is a very important process and can be done with porcelain Bridges and Crowns.

A bridge is a device which is used to replace the missing teeth. It generally attaches the adjacent natural teeth to the artificial teeth, and is of two types: permanently attached and removable. It is used to avoid the risk of gum disease in case of loss of teeth. Bridges are generally custom made from porcelain after taking the mold of the teeth and differ in shape and size from person to person according to the shape of the mouth. Crowns are cemented into the natural teeth and prove support for the bridge. These are also made of porcelain, and are strong enough to last a long time. These treatments are used for a lasting solution in cases of broken or distorted teeth.


If you have lost all your teeth due to an accident, injury or old age, there is no need to worry. Your everyday life and functions of the mouth can remain normal with the help of a denture. A denture is an appliance shaped like natural teeth and is fitted within the mouth replacing lost teeth. This helps in chewing and retaining the structure and supporting the cheek and jaws.

The procedure

A conventional denture is made after measuring the jaw line and the inlays of the mouth. This is usually done on completion of the healing process after the extraction of all the teeth. The upper and lower dentures are made of acrylic and are usually flesh colored. They cover and support the gums. The teeth are made out of plastic, porcelain or a combination of both.

The procedure of dentures has to be followed up with regular checkups for wear and tear as well as realignment to keep the shape of the jaw normal.

Root Canal Treatment (Endodontic Treatment)

Root canal is a treatment involving the removal of an infected area within the tooth. When the pulp at the centre of the tooth becomes infected due to decay, cracks or trauma, it needs to be removed and the inside area needs to be cleaned and sealed again. Root Canal Treatment is one of the most common dental procedures in the world. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent dental implants or bridges. Symptoms of an infection within the tooth can be pain in tooth or gums, sensitivity to hot and cold eatables and visible swelling of the tooth.

The procedure

Root Canal is done by removing the infected pulp within the tooth and cleaning and sealing the tooth again. This treatment usually is done with anesthesia and may require more than one visit, depending on the nature of the infection and the treatment required. A full examination and consultation is required before beginning this procedure, because the treatment of each person differs from the next, depending on the infected area.

Non Surgical Periodontal Treatment

“Periodontal” means “around the tooth”. When plaque (which later turns into tartar) is not removed from around the teeth for a long time, it starts affecting the base of the teeth and gums. The treatment required to keep your gums from the attack of plaque and tartar is called Periodontal care. Periodontal disease remains unknown to many people who have it, mostly because it is painless in the initial stages. It is sometimes called “silent disease”.Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular visits to a dentist can prevent periodontal disease.

Periodontal diseases in the beginning stages are treated with non-surgical Periodontal Therapy. Even in case of severe periodontal diseases, non-surgical periodontal therapy precedes surgical therapy. This non surgical therapy helps reduce the areas which require surgery as well as helps the healing process of the gums.

Non-surgical Periodontal Therapy includes Scaling and Root Planning(deep cleaning with anesthesia), and sometimes local placement of antibiotics to target the bacteria in the deep pockets. It is followed by a follow up visit in 6 weeks to re-evaluate the gums for healing.

Children’s Dentistry

  • First dental check up
  • Regular continuing care visits
  • Sealants
  • Fillings
  • Space maintainers
  • Ongoing evaluation of jaw & teeth growth and monitoring for need of Orthodontic treatment

Teeth require care and attention right from the time of birth of an individual. We provide dental care for children as well, addressing specific issues related to childhood dental problems. Each child is given more attention than an adult patient, so that he/she realizes the importance of natural teeth and forms early habits of taking good care of them. We handle cases related to tooth eruption, cavity prevention, tooth brushing, gum diseases and many others.

Our services for our younger patients include first dental visit, regular checkups, sealants, fillings and regular monitoring for jaw growth and evaluation for orthodontic treatment.

We recommend that young children be seen within the first year of their birth. Consider this first visit as “healthy baby checkup” for your child’s teeth. During that visit, we can check for decay and other conditions, and review how to properly care for your child’s teeth. She will also discuss with you in detail about early childhood decay and ways to prevent that and other concerns regarding baby bottles and training cups. Please ask us for a detailed brochure to help you start your children off to the right start.

As children grow, we monitor their jaw growth and teeth development every time they come for their for checkup. We also review with them the proper flossing method and brushing. We encourage good diet habits to ensure they include fruits and vegetables for good oral health. As teeth and jaws develop, they will always be monitored for need of orthodontia. We will inform parents if braces are going to be necessary and who to see if they are.

Sealants are recommended in the premolars & molars as they erupt because it acts as a barrier which protects the enamel by sealing out plaque and food. If sealants are not placed in a timely manner, there is a high possibility that the grooves and depressions in the molars will pack food and bacteria in them and start breakdown of the enamel, which leads to cavities.

Advanced Digital Technology

Dr. Patel wants to make sure her patients get the best of care and for that, she has invested in Digital X-ray Technology with a highly sophisticated Caries Detection Software and an Intra-Oral Camera, that helps her identify problem areas early on.

Dr. Patel is constantly studying and researching ways to deliver services to our patients that are more effective, safer, and even faster. Digital x-rays represent an important technological breakthrough that enables us to treat you better and more comfortably.

Advantages of Digital Dental X-rays:

  • They’re more sensitive than film systems, so your exposure to X-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent. It’s awesome. For our patients with health and/or radiation exposure concerns, this is critical to their health and we are happy to provide this technology for them.
  • Enhanced image quality allows Dr.Patel to view patients’ teeth in detail and catch problems as early as possible. The reason for this is that the images can be edited and brightness/contrast can be controlled to view a refined image. Dr. can even enlarge the image by zooming in to see finer details.
  • The large, color-enhanced images let you see what we see, so it’s easier for you to understand how we’ll be treating your teeth.
  • Used photo chemicals and film are not polluting the environment therefore kinder to the environment.
  • Your dental checkups take less time, and it’s fun to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed.
  • Improved Patient Care Networking: Since the images are digital, they can be easily stored and shared with other specialists efficiently if need arises. This saves time for both the patient and their dental professionals. Therefore, treatment options can be pursued with greater speed and accuracy due to this technology.
  • Sophisticated Caries Detection Software will analyze the digital xrays and identify cavities that are starting in between the teeth by identifying the change in the density of the enamel/dentin.

Dental x-rays may reveal:

  • Abscesses or cysts.
  • Bone loss.
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
  • Decay between the teeth.
  • Developmental abnormalities.
  • Poor tooth and root positions.
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage may save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!

How often should dental x-rays be taken?

The need for dental x-rays depends on each patient’s individual dental health needs. Your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend necessary x-rays based upon the review of your medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease.

A full mouth series of dental x-rays is recommended for new patients. A full series is usually good for three to five years. Bite-wing x-rays (x-rays of top and bottom teeth biting together) are taken at recall (check-up) visits and are recommended once or twice a year to detect new dental problems.

Intra Oral Camera:

Since we are living in an ever advancing digital era, and with the commitment of offering the highest quality care to our patients, we have invested in a State-of-the-art Intra Oral Camera that allows us to provide services to our patients that very few offices can.

Our office utilizes Intra-oral Camera Technology to help the patient better understand their diagnosis and treatment plan. An Intra-oral Camera is a very small digital camera that allows us to take and view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth, and gums, to aid us in Diagnosis and Treatment Planning. With clear, enlarged images, we can see details that might be missed by standard mirror examinations.

With this advanced technology we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips and worn metal fillings with extreme precision. The full-color images taken with the Intra-oral camera are sent to a computer screen so we can clearly see and diagnose dental problems much earlier than with traditional dental technology. Because images are displayed on our screens, patients will also be able to see areas being worked on and are able to gain a better understanding of dental procedures being performed. You will be amazed and “wowed” by this technology.

Benefits of Intra-oral Cameras:

  • Provides patients a better understanding of their dental needs by being able to see exactly what the doctor sees
  • Allows us to recognize potential problems early that could possibly be missed by a visual examination
  • Allows us to effectively monitor a patient’s treatment progress
  • Allows us to precisely monitor lesions for changes and potential risks
  • Allows us to send information to specialists before the patient is seen for better communication and preparation by the specialist
  • Allows us to photograph teeth for more accurate color matching for crowns, veneers and bridges
  • Allows us to send images to insurance companies for increased acceptance and payment of claims
  • Allows you to have a clear understanding of your dental conditions, and therefore, you will be able to make treatment decisions with confidence.

The intra oral camera allows you to be an active partner in your dental treatment by enabling you to see what we see inside your mouth.
