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.

Cosmetic Fillings

Cosmetic Filling is another name for white fillings in the front teeth which are used as a relatively simple method of disguising small defects such as chipped or crooked teeth or gaps between teeth. The procedure involves preparing your teeth with an etching solution which we simply paint on, and then applying the tooth-colored filling material (resin) to your teeth. We carefully shape the resin to give it a natural appearance, and bond it into place. This procedure does not usually need a local anesthetic.

Crown & Bridge

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.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants – The tooth replacement solution If you have missing teeth and want a solution that is close to your natural teeth, dental implants are the best option for you in the modern day scenario. It is now recognized by the American Dental Association as a standard treatment for a wide range of problems.

Implants have been used for more than a quarter of a century. It is an ancient art which has been refined and now the use of dental implants is becoming a routine. The procedure itself is quite easy and predictable.

Many patients choose implants to replace a single tooth, several teeth or to support a full set of dentures. What are implants? They are manufactured posts made of titanium and other materials placed directly into the jaw bone, which is designed to create a stable foundation.

There are 2 parts to a dental implant, which stimulates the strength of the tooth root. The main part of the dental implant is embedded in the jaw bone for an effect, which is much stronger than dentures. The second part of the dental implant is the post that protrudes above the jaw bones and gum lines to provide a fixed point to attach the tooth restoration that will simulate the crown.

Why replace missing teeth? A gap between your teeth, if obvious becomes a cosmetic concern when you smile or speak Missing teeth may affect your speech.

When a tooth is removed, the biting force on the remaining teeth begins to change. As the bite changes to compensate for the lost tooth, there is a risk of extra pressure and discomfort on the jaw joints, which may lead to Tempromandular Disorder also known as (TMD)

If a missing tooth is not replaced the surrounding teeth can shift. Harmful plaque and tartar can collect in new, hard-to-reach places created by the shifting teeth. Over time this may lead to tooth decay and periodontal diseases
Bone loss can occur in the region of the missing tooth

Implant supported bridges and dentures.

If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported denture can replace the missing teeth and some of the tooth roots.

The surgery can commence after thorough diagnosis and treatment planning. A recipient site of the same shape and size as the implant is created in the jaw bone with drilling instruments. The implant is inserted into the site prepared.
