Enhancement of facial beauty is one of the primary elective goals of patients seeking dental care. The lower one-third of the face has a major impact on the perception of facial esthetics. Frequently improvements in natural beauty can be expected to follow the restoration of ideal relationships between the denture and the facial soft tissues. By improving deficient facial proportion and integumental form, surgeons, orthodontists, and restorative dentists have the unique opportunity to address these aesthetic needs. Unfortunately, most of the time we as dentists have limited ourselves to the intra-oral arena of esthetics when in reality, the beautiful picture you are painting inside the mouth does not stand alone but is only part of the story. It is about time that we realize that esthetic dentistry does not begin or end inside the lips. Teeth need to fit into the entire framework of the face. The clinical ability to alter dentofacial form, whether through orthodontics, facial growth modification, or surgery, requires an understanding of facial beauty, including the evaluation of facial esthetics, proportions, and symmetry.
With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from tooth colour enhancements, laminates, composite bonding, correction of the misalignment of the teeth, etc. to digitally design your overall smile. The changes brought by various modalities of Dental procedures will give you that wow look!

Dermal fillers (in the form of Restylane®) offer a safe and natural cosmetic treatment that restores volume and fullness to refresh and revitalize your looks.

We all can do a magnificent job of making teeth look great and giving people a healthy and beautiful smile. Esthetic dentistry has been an absolute boom over the last 30 years when it comes to such innovative techniques as teeth whitening and minimally invasive veneers. Teeth whitening can now be done in less than one hour. Minimally invasive veneers at .3mm can’t get much thinner. CAD-CAM and other technologies will impact all of these areas in the future by making esthetic delivery systems that will make procedures faster. The final result though will all be the same – patients will still be receiving a beautiful smile just like they are today.
