1) Bonding and white fillings:
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light ( blue light), which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile
A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth.
A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, please ask one of our doctors about details.
A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damaged tooth surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite (bonding) and dental porcelain.
5) Teeth whitening:
Teeth whitening products certainly can remove harsh staining – that exists on the exterior as well and the interior of your tooth enamel. Products applied by us or with ‘at home’ whitening kits consist of either one of two products – those containing Peroxide, or those containing bleaching agents. It is important to note that tooth whitening can only be achieved on your natural teeth and not on artificial enhancements. When the whitening agent is applied to your teeth, the hydrogen/carbamide peroxide is broken down into oxygen molecules. These enter the tooth enamel and work to remove the stains within the enamel. Once the stains are broken down, more light can shine through your teeth which results in the whiter appearance
Dental inlays and onlays are restorations used to repair rear teeth that have a mild to moderate amount of decay. They can also be used to restore teeth that are cracked or fractured if the damage is not severe enough to require a dental crown. Inlays and onlays are usually made from porcelain, composite resin, and sometimes even from gold. Because they can be created from tooth-colored materials, inlays and onlays are often used to replace metal fillings for patients who desire a more natural-looking smile.
