Fillings are mainly used to restore teeth that are infected by cavities. A falling material is most often made from composite resin or ceramic, which allows the dentist to alter its appearance to mimic the natural teeth. The filling restores the contour of the decayed tooth and prevents reinfection by offering perfect sealing properties.
Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are used to cover a tooth in its entirety. They are used mostly in the case of teeth that are damaged, cracked, worn out, or chipped. By bonding a crown to a damaged tooth, its natural shape and structure can be restored. It also prevents the tooth from crumbling or being extracted.
Bridges are used to replace a natural tooth that has been extracted. They are made from tooth-colored ceramic material. Bridges are composed of a prosthetic tooth and crowns on either side to hold it firmly in place. A bridge restores the patient’s ability to bite and chew food like normal. Also, oral aesthetics would be restored back to normal.
Implants are known to be the strongest and most reliable tooth restorations. They are ceramic restorations that are implanted into the jawbone by means of a metal stud that acts as the root of the implant. Implants are known to last for several years together while offering excellent durability, functionality, and stability. Implants also help to prevent jawbone deterioration and the drifting of teeth.
Orthodontic care is intended to bring about a positive change in the alignment of the teeth and get rid of the patient’s malocclusion. Some of the commonly used orthodontic appliances are dental braces and Invisalign. They work by applying pressure on the teeth in a controlled manner and moving them as required.
Root Canal therapy
The root canal is a central cavity present in every tooth that houses the pulp. The pulp is composed of the nerves and blood vessels, which are responsible for the sensation and nourishment of the tooth. When the pulp develops an infection, the tooth would be put at risk of being extracted and also spreading the infection to the nearby teeth and gums. A root canal therapy would be required in such cases where the dentist would remove the infected pulp and restore the tooth using a crown.
Teeth discoloration is quite a common concern among most of our patients. It occurs due to improper brushing techniques, diet constituting of a lot of colored foods, chewing tobacco, smoking, etc. The teeth can be made to look whiter using our customized teeth whitening solutions.
