Scaling and Polishing
We are proud to be an ‘amalgam-free’ dental clinic and believe in esthetic restorations. We are dependent on tooth colored restorative resins called composites; for restoring decayed, chipped off, worn out and discolored teeth.
Bonded Porcelain Restorations are ceramic restorations, fabricated in the laboratory with utmost precision and are regarded as the best available alternative for huge restorations and for replacing old amalgam restorations.
The chief advantage of conservative esthetic dentistry is the ability to keep the tooth vital and to prevent damage to the healthy tooth structure.
Root Canal Treatment (Endodontic Therapy)
- When the dental nerve is infected because of decay or physiologic /pathologic wearing off of the tooth.
- When the tooth is traumatized and has fractured or chipped off.
- When the periodontal ligament of the tooth is irreversibly damaged/injured.
It is a procedure in which the dental nerve is extirpated and debrided after careful and precise cleaning and shaping of the root canal. It is then filled with an inert obturating material called gutta-percha.
Modern techniques of anesthesia and better instruments allow painless removal of the infected tooth.
We advice replacement of the extracted tooth soon, in order to prevent space loss due to migration of the neighboring and/or opposing teeth.
Alignment of Teeth
Orthodontic treatment involves the use of appliances which consist of brackets. These brackets can either be of metal or a more esthetic ceramic. Newer advances have facilitated the placement of these brackets lingually (inner surface of teeth); thus making it impossible for anyone to see them.
A recent advancement in this field is the use of Aligners which are a series of virtually invisible, removable trays that are to be worn sequentially. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. This method has been responsible for making the entire process much more comfortable, convenient and complimentary to your smile, thus making it the preferred method of tooth alignment!
Crowns and Bridges
1. Full ceramic crowns:
Porcelain fused to zirconium and full ceramic crowns are distinguished by their excellent esthetics. Porcelain exhibits a natural fluorescence, and absorbs, reflects and transmits light exactly like the natural tooth structure. This effect makes the all-porcelain crown perfect for use in anterior areas. Another advantage of the metal free ceramic crown is the tooth- colored margin, which need not be placed under the gum line. Thus, the crown margin does not irritate the gum tissue and prevents gingival recession.
2. Porcelain fused to zirconia crowns:
These are ceramic crowns with a zirconium core.
3. Porcelain fused to metal crowns:
These are ceramic crowns with a metal core. These are more esthetic as compared to full metal crowns.
4. Full Metal crowns:
- Nickel-Chrome metal crowns
- Nickel-free alloy crowns
- Precious metal crowns
- Semi-precious metal crowns
