Inlays and Onlays

The procedure is known for using indirect fillings that are made in an off-site laboratory. Fillings are bonded to the teeth to treat mild to moderate damages or decays during the second visit. Inlay and onlay work is done if the tooth structure’s damage is great but still has sufficient healthy tooth to avoid the need for a crown. The procedure allows the dentist to preserve the original tooth structure.

To compare inlays and onlays, inlays are applied when the damage is on the top edges of the cusps. Meanwhile, onlay is done if the damage extends down to the cusps of the tooth.

Composite Bonding

Dental bonding is the easiest and the least expensive procedure cosmetic dentistry. It is a special filling used in restoring, reshaping, and as well as rejuvenating the teeth. Composite bonding improves both the appearance and the function of our teeth. The procedure includes applying a thin layer of tooth-colored plastic to the front of the teeth.  Clay will be sculpted to correct the following issues like chipped or cracked tooth, misshaped tooth, stained tooth and also the spaces between the teeth.

The two types of Dental bonding are:

  • Single filling – this could be done in one appointment only and procedures above can be performed.
  • Complex fillings – these may need at least two appointments, and a temporary filling will be used until the permanent filling is finished.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are a quick treatment for issues such as stained, chipped, gapped teeth. It is a thin piece of porcelain that is bonded to the original enamel of the teeth. Veneers are custom-made to match the contour of the teeth for a natural look.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the effective way of lightening the natural color of our teeth. It doesn’t involve any surgery or any removal of teeth. It may not be a complete color change, but it can help in lightening the existing color.

Implants

Dental implants are commonly known to be effective solutions in replacing missing teeth. The implant is a post (titanium) that is placed in the jawbone beneath the gum line to hold the artificial tooth. The procedure can be done to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all teeth.
