A filling is a way to restore a damaged tooth back to its normal function and shape. Different restorative, filling materials are used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma. When a dentist gives you a filling, first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material. Composite (plastic) resins are matched to be the same color as your teeth and give an all natural appearance. The advantage of direct resin restorations is that they usually set quickly and can be placed in a single procedure.
Inlay is an indirect restoration (filling) produced to order in a lab and cemented to the tooth. Onlay is the same but covering or onlaying the missing cusps. When decay or fracture is so extensive that a direct restoration (amalgam or composite filling), would not provide sufficient resistance to biting forces an indirect restoration may be indicated.
Dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure of today’s dentistry. Tooth discoloration and stains can be caused by a number of factors. As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth.
Root canal treatment (RCT)
Root canal treatment or endodontic treatment is a dental procedure in which the diseased pulp of a tooth is removed and the pulp chamber and root canals are filled and sealed.
Inflamed pulp most often causes pain and in order to relieve pain and save the tooth it needs root canal treatment.
A veneer is a thin covering that is placed over the front,visible part of the tooth. They generally are placed on upper front teeth that are severely discoloured, poorly shaped or they may be used to correct uneven spaces or noticeable gap between the upper front teeth.
