A smile design is a dental procedure which artistically creates straighter, whiter and beautiful natural looking smiles. In short Smile design can do magic to you!
Often only a few small changes are required to create a complete smile transformation. Through a combination of cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneer and dental implants we can give you the beautiful smile that you have always desired.
Always opt for the method of smile design which is minimally invasive. This means in which no/minimal harm or cutting has been done to your tooth.
At Smilestone, we believe in giving you the best smile to suit your personality and face without harming your teeth & gums.

There are various ways in which smile designing is done:
Bleaching means whitening your teeth but the changes are not permanent. Which means that after 6months – 1 year the colour will go back to what it was.
There are various types of bleaching options available, like in the clinic or at home. The one which you may be requiring depends on the kind & severity of staining & the original shade of teeth which you have.
Always contact your dentist(preferably one who specializes in cosmetic dentistry) for your bleaching needs.
Who is it for?
Everyone who wishes to have whiter teeth for a short term, say an important event like an interview or wedding.

Veneers are thin layers of material which are applied to your tooth to change their shape, shade & appearance. They are as thin as 4 hair(0.5mm roughly)! This means that they look as good as natural teeth & cannot be differentiated from your own teeth
They are custom made for your teeth. There is no one size fits all policy here.
There are 2 main kinds of veneers:
- Ones which are directly applied to your teeth called Direct Composite veneers
- Ones which are made in lab & then attached to your teeth called Ceramic veneers.
