Dental implants are today’s best replacement alternative to missing teeth in terms of form, function and aesthetics. Implants are now used as routine treatment for an entire range of problems from replacing a single tooth to full oral rehabilitation and even for reliable denture retention.
A dental implant is a titanium screw like structure used to replace the root of the missing tooth. It gives support to the tooth crown. Thus a new artificial tooth can be made, which maintains the natural bite, prevents unnatural tilting and shifting of adjacent and opposing teeth and improves the smile, speech as well as chewing functions.
Root canal treatment is the removal of the infected soft tissue within the tooth and its replacement by an artificial inert ‘filling’ material. This procedure basically saves the tooth and eliminates dental pain. You many need root canal for any of these reasons:
- Persistent toothache
- Decay of teeth or cavities which are deep
- Tooth becoming darker after an injury or trauma
- Swelling of gum near the tooth
- Tender gums or teeth
Tooth jewellery is a Swarovski crystal applied on tooth without any drilling procedures. It is not at all harmful for teeth and lasts upto 6 months. It helps to improve face value and important for personality development. Various colours and sizes of crystals are available for enhancing your beautiful smile.
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is bonded onto the front surface of a tooth so to improve its cosmetic appearance. A porcelain veneer can be an ideal way to make a cosmetic change for a tooth. Compared to dental bonding, porcelain veneers usually look more lifelike and they have the added benefit of resisting staining well. The chemical bond between porcelain and enamel creates a translucent, tooth-shaded unit with perfect natural aesthetics. Even a dentist can have difficulty telling veneered teeth from untreated ones.
Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth.
A crown is used to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function.
Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.
Bleaching is one of the most common procedures of dental cosmetics. It brightens teeth that are discoloured, stained, or have been darkened because of injury or drinking habits.
Bonding is a dental procedure in which composite resin is used to sculpt decayed / chipped, fractured or discolored teeth. This procedure can be done in single visit unlike dental veneers. It can be also used to close spaces between teeth, to change shape or color of teeth and it blends to surrounding natural tooth’s colors.
Periodontal surgery is a plastic (reshaping) surgical procedure designed to restore and regenerate normal form and function to lost and damaged periodontal structures which support the teeth (the gum tissue, periodontal ligament and bone).
Cosmetic fillings are tooth coloured fillings which require less drilling of tooth & restore natural appearance of the teeth, unlike amalgam fillings, which require more drilling of tooth and are unaesthetic. Moreover amalgam contains mercury which is toxic for our body.
Lumineers are type of veneers in which no grinding procedures are done. Useful in stained, chipped, crooked teeth, to boost your confidence.
