CONSERVATIVE DENTISTRY AND ENDODONTICS

Deals with preservation of natural but decayed teeth and also the cosmetic improvement of dental problems…

Cosmetic dental fillings (Composites)

Decayed parts of the teeth appear dark colored and this has a negative effect on our personality. Previously such decayed teeth were filled by silver fillings, but these fillings themselves look dark grey and cant bond to the tooth cavity. Composites are tooth colored filling materials which bond with the tooth, are as strong as silver fillings and appear so natural that it becomes difficult to find the actual tooth with the filling.

Root canal treatment

Badly decayed teeth sometimes give severe pain and even swelling. Such teeth can be saved and made fully functional like normal teeth by root canal treatment, where the damaged nerves inside the tooth are removed and replaced by special filling materials. For better strength, such treated teeth often require crowns.
 

Tooth whitening (Bleaching)

Many patients complain of their teeth not being white enough. This may be natural ,due to diseases like fluorosis, some illness or medicines taken during childhood or due to habits like smoking, excessive tea etc. Such teeth can be whitened by special chemicals which can be safely applied on teeth surfaces and good results can be expected in a week or a few weeks time depending upon the severity of stains. The procedure can be carried out in the dental office or at home.

Metal or tooth colored fixed artificial teeth ( Crown and Bridge)

These fulfill your desire to enjoy eating even if you loose some of your natural teeth. The covers made on teeth (crown) for better strength or fixing of missing tooth with adjacent supports (Bridge) are bonded with special adhesives to the tooth for permanent fixing. Tooth colored ceramic bridges benefits you much more in the sense of its strength, longevity, cleanliness and the natural look.

Cosmetic laminates/ veneers

yellowish or discolored teeth due to above reasons can also be hidden by fixing the ceramic tooth colored laminate/veneer just on the outer front of the anterior teeth instead of fixing a cap on the whole tooth. This also improves slight discrepancies of shapes of teeth and reduces the need to cut healthy tooth structure for the cap.
 

Post and Core foundation

this makes it possible to save a severely destroyed tooth by root canal treatment first, followed by a foundation like preparation to rebuild a portion of lost tooth structure to put a crown over that. A stainless steel, titanium or even tooth colored pin is fixed in the root of the tooth and the upper portion then is built by permanent strong cement to support the crown from within!! Miniature civil engineering!!!
