What are the various cosmetic dental options that we offer?
Dental veneers: Veneers are thin, wafer-like dental appliances bonded to the surface of a tooth. They are used to treat various dental issues such as spacing, chipped teeth, worn-out teeth, cracked teeth, discolored teeth, crooked teeth, and too-small teeth. They are bonded to the surface of the teeth with the help of adhesives.
Teeth whitening: This procedure helps get rid of the stains from the surface of the teeth, making them look whiter. It also helps in removing the bacteria from the teeth surface. Whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide serves the purpose.
Composite fillings: Composite fillings fill cavities and restore cracked and fractured teeth. They have great aesthetic features as they can be made to exactly match the enamel of teeth, therefore making them almost indistinguishable.
Dental implants: They are regarded as the best solution to missing teeth by most dentists. They are a permanent solution and offer many advantages such as high durability, high strength, restoring the functionality of the mouth, further tooth loss prevention, etc. They are fixed to the jawbone with the help of metal studs.
Inlays: They are custom made fillings which are made up of porcelain or composite. When a tooth has a significantly large cavity, restoring it using filling material can crack it. Hence, inlays can be placed in them to restore their strength and contour.
Onlays: They are alternatives to dental crowns and can be used to restore damaged or severely worn out teeth. They're used when the cusp or biting surface of the teeth is damaged.
Bonding: Bonding is the process of applying a resinous material on the surface of a tooth to change its shape and size. When teeth are too short, damaged, or improperly spaced, bonding helps restore them to their ideal aesthetics.
Crowns and bridges: Crowns are thin shells or caps which are used to cover an entire tooth. They help to restore damaged teeth and also improve the aesthetics of misshapen teeth. Bridges are the simplest replacement for missing teeth. They look exactly like natural teeth in terms of color and contour, and hence, blend in with the existing teeth.
