Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright and healthy smile can increase self-confidence and overall satisfaction.

Most dental treatments can be performed using porcelain and composite materials instead of metal. We offer Invisalign®, whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth-coloured crowns and fillings and many more personalised treatments to patients looking to brighten up their smiles.



These “invisible” aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile enhancing self-esteem and physical confidence.

Dr. Shekar at Ivory Dental Care is a certified Invisalign® provider and has been treating several patients with Invisalign®.

Steps in Invisalign®

  1. At your first visit, a treatment plan will be mapped out with your goals in mind. Then, impressions and pictures of your teeth will be digitized in order to work with a computerized 3-D image of your teeth.
  2. Then, Dr. Shekar will plan your tooth movements throughout your entire treatment timeline. You will be able to see a virtual representation of your teeth before, during, and after completion of the Invisalign® process.
  3. From the doctor’s precise treatment plan, customized personal aligners will be created using sophisticated technology by the Invisalign® Company, for you to wear at each stage of your treatment and a full set of treatment typically includes 20-40 aligners per arch.
  4. Each set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  5. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
  6. You will visit Dr. Shekar approximately once every 4-6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  7. Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30 however would vary between different patients.

Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.

There are two options available for whitening your teeth:

  • In chair whitening:This procedure is performed during your visit to the dentist at Ivory Dental Centre. It approximately takes 90 minutes and the results are better and faster.
  • Take home whitening:Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. A significant change in tooth colour is usually seen in around four to six weeks.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!

In the hands of a highly skilled dentist at Ivory Dental Care, porcelain laminates can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.
