Our restorative services include:
A crown provides a layer of protection to your teeth to protect it and to prevent fracturing. Crowns are usually made by combining the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain. However, you can opt for full porcelain crowns for your front teeth for maximum aesthetics, and use a full-metal crown for teeth at the back.
Bridges are used to fill gaps between teeth. While the supporting teeth on either side of the gap are reinforced with dental crowns, the gap between them is ‘bridged’ with a cemented appliance, often made with porcelain bonded to the metal for strength. Bridges can be made to look very real and lifelike so that it looks almost as though you never lost your teeth at all.
Implants simply mean replacing a missing tooth. The difference between bridges and implants is that bridges are useful when root canal therapy has been carried out on the neighbouring teeth or they are heavily restored, while implants are used when the neighbouring teeth have had absolutely no dental work done on them.
Too much contact and friction between the top and bottom teeth can lead to corrosion of the surface and even chipping. People tend to grind their teeth due to stress, anxiety, sleep disorders or some other underlying conditions, which is called bruxism. We help prevent some of the damage with mouthguards or nightguards so that there is no contact between your upper and lower teeth.
Infections in the teeth can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Your tooth has a canal made of tissues, nerves, blood vessels and so on. Needless to say, any issue in your root canal can lead to severe decay which in turn can lead to abscesses, severe infection and also cause decay in neighbouring teeth, requiring root canal therapy to salvage the tooth. A tooth extraction will be the last resort to eliminate pain and infection.
Fillings are especially used to prevent cavities from reaching dental roots. Portions of the infected tooth are removed and filled in with material such as tooth-coloured composite or amalgams. This way, the damage does not reach the nerves in the dental roots, saving you from a lot of pain and discomfort. Fillings can be made to match the shade of your teeth and can also be used to repair chipped teeth.
