Popular restorative services
Dental Fillings: Fillings can be used for various purposes such as filling cavities, treating minor cracks, reshaping teeth, etc. Since they are usually made of tooth-colored ceramic or composite, they seamlessly blend in with the natural teeth and go undetected. They can be made to match the exact shade and texture of the enamel, and are highly resistant to wear.
Dental Crowns: Crowns are cap-like dental restorations used to cover a badly damaged, discolored or chipped tooth. They are custom fabricated according to the requirement of the patient and fit perfectly on the tooth, providing excellent comfort and aesthetic benefits.
Dental Bridges: Bridges are the easiest way to replace an extracted tooth. It is a prosthetic structure accompanied on both sides by crowns, which help it to stay in place. It would be fabricated using tooth-colored materials, which help it perfectly mimic the appearance of a real tooth.
Bonding: Bonding involves the application of a photosensitive resin on the surface of a tooth to change its appearance or to treat minor cracks. Further, it will be shaped according to the contour of the tooth and a curing light would be used to harden it. The material used for bonding is biocompatible, making it absolutely safe for use.
Veneers: Veneers are thin shells made out of porcelain and are bonded on to the frontal surface of a tooth. They cover chipping, cracks, discoloration, and are also used to improve the shape of misshapen teeth.
Implants: Implants are regarded as the best dental solution to replace missing teeth due to their amazing benefits. They are durable, strong and aesthetically pleasing. They are made from titanium, and the crown of the implant is made from ceramic. Together, they restore the functionality of the mouth and help the remaining teeth stay intact.
Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays are customized restorations that improve the appearance of the teeth. Onlays can be considered as ‘half-crowns’ as they cover only the cusp of a tooth. Inlays are custom fabricated fillings that are shaped according to the contour of the cavity and fit perfectly in it.
