Dental implants are made up of titanium, and they act as artificial dental roots by anchoring the crowns. They do not damage adjacent teeth, maintain the shape and size of jawbone in which they are placed, and if properly cared for, should last for a lifetime. We also perform advanced bone grafting in those cases, in which after dental loss, jawbone is too deficient to support a dental implant.
Chins can be smaller, or larger than normal. They might be deviated towards one side. The chin is approached from within the mouth, and the chin is brought to its right position, and more aesthetic position and orientation and held in place with a metal implant. No scars are left on the face.

It is quite common that the basis for a large overbite or underbite is the size of the jaws and not limited to the teeth. For example, behind an underbite, the reason can be a large sized lower jaw or a smaller sized upper jaw. The correction would therefore require in addition to dental braces, surgical positioning of the upper and lower jaws to their right position and fixed with the use of special miniaturized titanium bone implants.

Modern jaw corrective surgical procedures allow one to correct asymmetries on the face by addressing the underlying bones which are at fault.

High and prominent cheek bones often signify beauty. When they are of smaller size and/or underdeveloped, cheek bone implants can be placed to augment cheek prominences. These procedures might or might not be done in conjunction with cheek fat removal.
Sometimes the cheek bones are adequate in their size but the fat within the cheek does not allow the cheek contours to be appreciated fully. Through a minor surgical procedure, which is done from within the mouth, cheek fat pads are removed to give a more delineated appearance to the cheek bones.
Aesthetic dental treatment can be performed to correct minor flaws in smile, tooth discoloration, replacement of missing teeth, minor spacing between teeth and an uneven gum line. The following is a list of common aesthetic dental procedures:
Contact thin veneers fitted directly without grinding, shaving or drilling. An excellent non-invasive option to correct chipped, discolored and slightly misaligned teeth.
Slightly invasive option that helps in masking discoloration because of fluorosis and tetracycline. Very slight tooth surface preparation is required mostly without shots. Veneers are an ideal option for management of slight spaces and crowding in anterior teeth. Complete smile make overs correcting the discrepancies in size and shape of teeth can be easily achieved using veneers.
We provide filling that match your tooth to ensure a natural look. Because composite fillings can be done in smaller preparations, less of your tooth structure is lost and less drilling is needed. Composites provide an extremely esthetic option for restoring decayed anterior and posterior teeth.
