Dental treatments are for those suffering from problems related to teeth. Here is a list of some dental treatments:
It is made to replace the broken or missing teeth/tooth. Bridge is fixed in your mouth unlike dentures which can be removed. It is usually created from precious metals like porcelain etc.
A crown is a cap like covering for your broken, damaged or decayed tooth. It completely covers original teeth. It is made to make your teeth look better. Real teeth need to drill down to fix this crown properly. As it takes some time to make crown for your teeth size, you won’t have crown fitted on the same day.
Sealants protect teeth from decay. It is a liquid painted on the biting surface of cleaned teeth. It forms a physical barrier to stop food from collecting in fissures of teeth and cause infection.
Tooth decay causes a cavity/hole in tooth. Cavity is cleaned, dried and sealed with a filling material. Dentist use drill and other tools to remove decay.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a procedure that replaces infected pulp with a filling. Pulp is a nerve which supplies oxygen, nutrients and feelings to tooth. Pulp is housed at center of tooth. This nerve is removed from a tooth. Interior of tooth is cleaned, dried and filled with a filling. After filling outer tooth is covered with a crown which stops it from infecting again.
Braces are used to straighten or move teeth to improve teeth appearance and their working. Some braces are removable. You can take them out and clean them. They can be made of metal, plastic or ceramic. Invisible braces are made of clear plastic.
They are fixed alternatives to removable dentures. They may be the only option if loss of teeth has caused mouth to shrink. Several dental appointments are required for the adequate treatment planning, design and fitting of implants. To fit an implant, titanium screws are drilled into the jaw bone to support a crown, bridge or denture.
Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of teeth. Bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size or length, veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite. Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color or shape compared to crowns, but the process is not reversible.
Enamel shaping or contouring is a quick and painless process of shaping natural teeth to improve their appearance. It is generally used to correct small imperfections such as uneven teeth or teeth that are slightly overcrowded. Results can be seen immediately. Enamel shaping is often combined with whitening, veneers, or bonding.
Whitening (or bleaching) is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. The ease of access and relative low cost make it a very attractive option for people looking to improve smile esthetics without undergoing anything too invasive. The best results are typically achieved through in-office professional whitening treatment, though there are a number of dentist-dispensed take home whiteners that let you do it yourself.
A common smile concern many people share is gummy smile, in which an excessive amount of gum tissue is exposed when smiling. Also called excessive gingival display, gummy smile is treatable in a variety of ways, including laser treatment, surgical lip repositioning, orthodontics, maxillofacial surgery and gingival sculpting. A gingival contouring treatment often are performed by specialists such as periodontists, orthodontists or in some cases an oral surgeon.
