In the present scenario, emphasis is on preservation, hence this specialty plays a vital role in saving the natural tooth. 

People say that the eyes are a gateway into an individual’s soul, but smile says a lot about an individual. Not only does a beautiful smile look great and bring a sense of joy to others, it also tells that how much a person cares about his/her health. This blending of beauty, health, and function, we call it “Aesthetic Dentistry.” Aesthetic dentistry is the union between the ‘art and science of dentistry’ and has changed the landscape of Conservative dentistry forever.  A large population around the ITS dental College and its peripheral belts have high affinity towards dental fluorosis and frequent cases of teeth spacing and being on the highway side, cases of road accidents are also predominant making it hard for young people to wear confident smiles. But all hope is not lost as ITS dental college, Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics promises proper aesthetic dental care that helps restore their smile. 

Aesthetic dentistry helps correct teeth that are: Crooked, Stained, Cracked, Chipped. It encompasses a wide variety of treatment procedures - Teeth whitening, Veneering, Enamel     contouring, Dental bonding, Full Crowns, Tooth coloured inlays and onlays. Mild to moderate dental fluorosis are treated with tooth whitening, composite bonding and porcelain veneers whereas dental bonding, dental veneers and crowns are used to mitigate problems of diastema. Also problems of malformations, broken teeth can be overcome with profound aesthetic treatment.  Overall a successful aesthetic treatment enhances appearance, improves speech, enhances self-being and overall oral health. 

A dentist must understand the relevant principles, particularly those of smile designing and should also possess a robust knowledge of the different esthetic materials that are available, and their clinical indications and limitations in our practice. Nothing is permanent for life, and patients may have unreal expectations about their treatment outcome. It is the duty of the dentist to provide sufficient information to allow patients to make up their minds before proceeding with any particular treatment.
