Tooth whitening also known as Bleaching lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Most dentists perform tooth whitening.
Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.
The outer layer of a tooth is called the enamel. The color of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the color of the dentin under it. Your genes affect the thickness and smoothness of the enamel. Thinner enamel allows more of the color of the dentin to show through. Having smoother or rougher enamel also affects the reflection of light and therefore the color.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.
Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high intensity curing light. The procedure gets its name because materials are bonded to the tooth. Bonding is typically used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It is also used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Often times bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede.
Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental problems, most commonly, dental cavities, gingivitis, periodontal (gum) diseases and bad breath. There are also oral pathologic conditions in which good oral hygiene is required for healing and regeneration of the oral tissues. These conditions include gingivitis, periodontitis, and dental trauma, such as subluxation, oral cysts, and following wisdom tooth extraction.
Full mouth reconstruction, full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.
Full mouth reconstruction typically involves general or restorative dentists (performing procedures like crowns, bridges and veneers), and can incorporate dental specialists like periodontists (specializing in the gums), oral surgeons, orthodontists (specializing in tooth movements and positions) and endodontists (specializing in the tooth pulp).
Smile is pleasing when the teeth are set in golden proportion to each other, meaning that there is a specific amount of teeth which should be visible when a person smiles. If somebody's teeth are not optimally aligned, the whole smile looks disproportionate. The smile can thus be improved by either orthodontic treatment (braces) or by laminates/ veneers. It require thorough planning by a team of experts to give the lost confidence to the patient.
When the infection has spread to the innermost portion of the tooth (pulp), your dentist suggests you to undergo root canal treatment to save the tooth.The removal of the infected pulp or the nerves that lies within the root of the tooth. It is this infected pulp tissue that causes pain and ultimately abscess. The endodontist will examine the tooth and x-rays before numbing the area around the affected tooth. First of all access is obtained to the nerve by establishing a small opening in the top of the tooth, under a local anesthesia. The length of the root canal is determined with the help of small needles and the infected pulp is removed. After that, the canals where the nerve is located are reshaped and prepared to accept a special root canal filling material. The number of visits necessary to complete your root canal will depend upon the infected state of the nerve, and the complexity of the procedure.
Replacing a Single Tooth If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root. Replacing Several Teeth If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.Implant-supported bridges have a primary advantage over traditional bridges; when an implant is placed the bone is stimulated and preserved. With a bridge, most patients experience bone atrophy. Dental implants have enhanced longevity and are more functional and pleasing than bridges and crowns. Replacing All of Your Teeth If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots. .
