Today, dental procedures are more popular than ever from teeth whitening, teeth replacement, and shaping to closing spaces. And the dentist is now well equipped with a wide array of techniques and tools for improving the look of your smile. Five most common cosmetic dentistry procedure include;

Teeth Whitening

Over time, teeth absorb micro pigments that stain and discolour them. Foods and beverages such as tea, coffee, dark berries slowly stain our teeth. After smoking, taking certain medications, or going through a mouth trauma, our teeth tend to discolour. Using a chemical procedure, your dentist can restore the natural colour of your teeth or make them brighter and whiter, making your smile beautiful again


Crowns are also known as caps, and they completely cover the tooth. To restore the normal appearance and shape of your tooth, you may need to undergo a dental procedure that fits dental crowns over an existing tooth structure. This helps in repairing, strengthening damaged teeth, or restoring the tooth’s function and natural appearance. You may also need a crown to;

  • Protect a week tooth
  • Cover a tooth with a large filling
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Hold dental bridge in place
  • Cover a tooth that had undergone a root canal procedure


Dental implants are a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They have three basic parts;

  • Titanium metal for fusing the jawbone
  • An abutment (fits over the section of the implant that sticks out from the gums)
  • The crown, which resembles the shape of a tooth for a unique restorative to the damaged tooth

Dental implant uses the adjacent teeth as anchors, and they are alternative to bridges that are surgically fit into the jawbone.


Dental veneers are thin custom shells made from porcelain to cover the front part of the teeth to enhance their colour and shape. Veneers are long-lasting and provide superior appearance. They can improve teeth that;

  • Are permanently strained.
  • Have spaces between them
  • Are poorly shaped
  • Have become chipped or worn
  • Are slightly crooked


Orthodontic is a dental procedure that corrects crooked teeth and repositions misaligned jaws using bracers and aligners. The procedure makes it easier to clean your teeth and improve your smile
