Whitening of teeth can be done by Bleaching or by the use of Veneers. Bleaching is done by the use of a chemical which is applied on the surface of the teeth. When a lower strength of the material is used, the patient can safely apply it by himself in the Bleaching trays that are provided. He is usually advised on the duration of time that he can apply the Bleaching agent.
A thin layer of composite or porcelain is sticked to the teeth to get the desired appearance. Helps to mask white or brown spots, discolourations, correct size or shape differences, chipped or cracked teeth and to add more bulk to teeth. More aesthetic, hygienic and advantageous than crowns. Requires minimal tooth preparation. When fitting crown, protective enamel has to be ground off.
Used for correction of broken, decayed, cracked, discoloured, malformed or chipped teeth. Composite fillings can be tooth coloured and are absolutely safe. Immediate result. Takes only one sitting.
Orthodontics (Correction of crowding of teeth)
Orthodontics is the treatment performed to correct your bite and make your smile look wonderful, with the help of braces. Orthodontic treatment can improve your dental health and change your facial appearance for the better, and it can boost your self-esteem. It can provide you with the chance to participate in improving the way you look. Patients often feel more self-confident even before treatment is completed.
Treatment of gum diseases (Bone grafts)
When Scaling and Polishing are not done routinely, the gums get infected and tend to bleed. The infection causes a bad odour in the mouth, leading to what is commonly called ‘Bad Breath’. Cases with bleeding gums and bad mouth smell are easily treatable. The cause of the problem is the Bacteria. Once we remove the Bacteria the problem settles down. Scaling is done and if needed Gum curettage is done. In advanced cases, gum surgery may also be needed. Some times a bone graft may be needed to replace the bone that has been lost.
Crown & Bridges (Metal-free ceramic crowns)
Ceramic Crowns are used to restore the shape, strength and function of a decayed tooth. After a tooth has had a Root Canal Treatment, the tooth has a tendency to fracture. To prevent this, the tooth is reinforced with a Crown. The most commonly used one is the Ceramic Fused to Metal crown. The strength comes from the metal, and the natural look which matches that of the adjacent teeth comes from the Ceramic that is fused to the metal. The tooth then can be used normally for both looks and for eating.
Root Canal Treatments
Teeth are impacted when they fail to emerge through the gums, or emerge only partially, at the expected time. Your wisdom teeth, also called third molars, usually begin to erupt between the ages of 17 and 21. Because they are the last to emerge in the mouth, wisdom teeth are the most common teeth to become impacted. This may happen because a wisdom tooth is turned to the side, tilted or otherwise positioned incorrectly in the jaw. Wisdom teeth also become impacted when there is not enough room in the jaw or the mouth for them to emerge.
Dental Implants are entirely artificial teeth that a periodontist or other qualified dental specialist places into the jaw to hold an individual crown or bridge of teeth! Dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for their support; they are implanted directly into the jaw. Because of the anchoring strength of dental implants they are in many ways better option than traditional bridge and crown work. Dental implants feel and look natural causing you to forget that you even have an artificial tooth. Candidates for dental implants must be in good general and oral health with adequate jaw bone and health gum tissue in the area of missing teeth.
