Bondings
Dental Bonding is a restoration procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is bonded to a tooth and cured with ultraviolet light. Bonding is faster and cheaper than veneers or crowns, and can thus be a good option to make small cosmetic improvements to your teeth. Unlike veneers and crowns, bonding can be done within one office visit since nothing has to be custom made by a dental laboratory. Additionally, the procedure typically requires removing less the tooth enamel compared to veneers and crowns. However, since bonding typically doesn’t last as long as other forms of restoration and is less resistant to stains, it is used more often for small cosmetic touchups rather than major restorations.
Crowns
Compared to fillings which just cover a small portion of a tooth, a crown (or cap) encases the entire visible portion of a tooth. In effect, the crown acts as the tooth's new outer surface.A dental crown is used when a tooth is broken or decayed to such an extent that fillings aren't able to repair the problem. The crown is able to provide a protective shell around the damaged or decayed tooth to strengthen it, as well as to improve the appearance of the tooth. They can also help restore a tooth to it's original shape, are used commonly for teeth that have been broken. While crowns come in different materials, the most common crowns typically have some mixture of porcelain in them to give them a look and feel similar to a natural tooth.The first visit to your dentist involves reshaping the tooth and taking impressions to create the crown. Typically a portion of you tooth will have to be removed for the crown to fit properly. After the dentist reshapes your tooth, he will use a special material to create an impression of it. This impression will be sent to a dental laboratory to be made into a permanent crown. Before sending you home, the dentist will provide you with a temporary crown to cover your tooth in between visits. When you return to you dentist, he will have received the permanent crown from the laboratory. He will remove the temporary crown and fit the new permanent one. Before cementing the permanent crown in place, he will ensure that it fits comfortably and matches the color of your teeth.
Bridges
A dental bridge is a false tooth that is used to fill the gap created by missing tooth or teeth. A gap between your teeth can be potentially dangerous to your dental health, as it can cause your teeth to shift resulting in a change in your bite that could be painful. Dental bridges help alleviate this problem by using the two surrounding teeth as anchors to hold a false tooth in the place where the gap is. Typically, porcelain crowns are placed over the surrounding teeth, and the false tooth, known as a pontic, is fused between them.
Fillings
When treating a cavity, the dentist will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and fill it with another substance. This procedure is called a filling. There are multiple options for the material to be used in the filling, the most common of which are composite fillings and amalgam fillings. A composite filling is also known as a tooth colored filling, since the material used in the filling can be closely matched to the color of your teeth. Composite fillings provide good durability for small to medium cavities, and the procedure typically involves removing less of a tooth than you would during an amalgam filling. They are also particularly well suited for treating front or highly visible teeth because of their natural look. When can a composite filling be used for? Decayed tooth (i.e. cavity) Chipped or broken teeth Decreasing the gap between teeth After the dentist numbs the area where the filling is to be placed, he will remove any decayed portions. A substance is then applied to help open up the pores of your teeth for a stronger bond, and hardened and cured with a special light. Once this is complete, the filling is applied in thin layers to slowly form the complete filling. After the composite has hardened, the filling will be smoothened and polished to be comfortable and fit your bite.
Extractions
A dental extraction is the procedure to remove a tooth from your mouth. A dental extraction is most commonly required if one of your teeth is damaged beyond practical repair. The most common reasons for tooth extractions include: Severe tooth decay or infection may make it impossible or too costly to repair a tooth Advanced gum disease may required a tooth to be pulled so it doesn’t affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of your mouth A tooth may be extracted if it is blocking other teeth from coming in During orthodontic work, teeth may need to be extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place Wisdom teeth are often extracted either before or after they come in What to expect Your dentist will first administer anesthetic to numb the area and reduce discomfort. During the extraction, you will feel the pressure of the tooth being removed, but should not feel any pain. Typically, the dentist is able to remove your tooth within a matter of minutes. Immediately after the tooth extraction, a small amount of bleeding is normal and patch of gauze will be placed in the affected area. The area may bleed minimally for the next 24 hours or so and taper off after that. Follow your dentist's instructions on how often to change the gauze, and what other post-procedure steps to follow.
Implant Crowns
An implant is a replacement tooth that is surgically positioned in your jaw. Bone grows around and integrates with the implant surface to hold it firmly in place. Implants look and feel the most like your natural teeth and can help prevent bone loss and protect adjacent teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth. Implants can also be used to help secure dentures for a much better fit.
Cleaning & Checkup
Routine dental cleanings are important to maintain good oral health. Professional cleaning by a dental hygienist can remove plaque (calculas) that may develop around or between teeth. Leaving these deposits on the teeth can lead to gingivitis or more severe periodontal (gum) disease. The ADA recommends cleanings every six months. At a dental cleaning and check-up appointment the following services may be performed. Oral Exam: Examination is performed by both the dental hygienist and the dentist. Prophylaxis: Cleaning away the heavy deposits from the teeth is called scaling. Then the teeth are polished to remove any remaining plaque and stains. Fluoride treatment: We recommend fluoride treatment at least once a year for adults and children to help prevent decay. Sealants: Sealants are usually placed on children’s first permanent molars to help prevent decay in the deep grooves and pits. Adults may also benefit from sealants in certain circumstances.
Teeth Whitening
Our teeth can discolor through the years through natural aging. Our teeth also pick up stains from what we eat and drink. In most cases these surface stains can be removed and the teeth whitened. The most common professional system for whitening the teeth is also the least expensive. Impressions are made of your teeth and custom bleaching trays are fabricated to fit this model. The trays are worn with a special dental whitening solution for twenty to thirty minutes each day for about two weeks. It is important to consult with your dentist to understand the best method for your individual case.
