Dentistry focuses on many aspects related to the mouth, among which restorative and cosmetic dentistry are prominent ones. Restorative dentistry deals with fabricating ceramic restorations to bring the teeth back to their ideal contour and structural integrity. Cosmetic dentistry involves making changes to the teeth and the surrounding tissues to enhance the appearance of your smile. Together, they give you stronger teeth and a more pleasing smile.
What procedures are involved in restorative and cosmetic dental treatment?
Teeth replacement: Missing teeth can lead to several drawbacks, such as hindered oral functionality, displeasing smile, poor jawbone health, and the risk of further tooth loss. It is best to get missing teeth replaced at the earliest to avoid these disadvantages. We recommend tooth replacement solutions using dental implants, bridges, or dentures, depending on the number of missing teeth.
Restoration of damaged teeth: Teeth that have sustained damage due to external trauma, biting hard objects, or due to a poor structure can be restored to their ideal contour and size using ceramic restorations. Some of the popular ones are crowns, veneers, onlays, etc. Since they are made from dental-grade ceramic, they can be customized to mimic the exact appearance of the adjoining natural teeth.
Gum contouring: Gum diseases can ruin the natural appearance of your smile and lead to many severe symptoms, such as the decay of the soft gum tissues, severe bad breath, discharge of pus and blood when you brush the teeth or eat food, bone deterioration, etc. We treat gum diseases by removing the decayed tissues and using medication to treat the infection. Healthy tissues will be grafted in the region of gum receding to increase their volume.
Filling cavities: Cavities are caused due to the erosion of the enamel by the microbes in the mouth that get deposited on the teeth as tartar. Over time, cavities become wider and deeper and can potentially lead to tooth loss as well. Hence, we recommend getting cavities filled with suitable filling material, such as dental-grade ceramic or composite resin, to restore their contour and aesthetics. In case the cavity is significantly bigger, we may use an inlay for the procedure.
Teeth whitening: Teeth whitening is purely a cosmetic dental procedure that involves using a teeth whitening gel to eliminate the stains from the surface of the teeth. The procedure is simple, quick, and yields impressive results. We offer in-house whitening, customized take-home whitening kits, and laser teeth whitening solutions.
Apart from these, we offer various other dental treatments such as composite bonding, extractions, root canal therapy, orthodontic solutions, etc.
