Known as indirect fillings, inlaysand onlays are made up of ceramic or composite materials used to restore teeth that have suffered too much damage to support a direct filling. Depending on the extent of loss of tooth structure, your dentist may suggest an inlay or onlay. Usually, this dental procedure is carried out over two visits. During the first visit, the damaged tooth is prepared and an impression is taken which is then sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication of inlay/onlay. The restoration is then fitted into place during the second visit to restore normal tooth structure and function.
Fractured, stained or decayed teeth are also repaired by a procedure known as composite bonding. A dental material known as composite resin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of the tooth to be repaired which is then carved into shape, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity light. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the rest of the surrounding tooth structure and also the remainder of your natural teeth to make a healthy, bright smile.
Teeth are typically stained from smoking, food, drinks (coffee, tea or red wine) or poor oral hygiene.
Teeth whitening is a procedure involving bleaching the tooth surfaces to lighten their shade and colour. It involves the use of an oxidative chemical that alters the light-absorbing or light-reflecting nature of tooth components, thereby increasing their perception of whiteness.This enhances your looks by giving you a shining, bright smile.
Composite or ceramic laminates that are adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks can improve worn teeth or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may additionally be suggested if you have gaps in your teeth or if there is no change in the colour of your teetheven after undergoing teeth whitening treatment.
Gum colouration, also called gum bleaching, is a procedure used to lighten or take away black spots or patches on the gums caused by melanin pigment.
A chipped or cracked tooth is a two-fold sign of a tooth that may need a root canal. For one, perhaps there was trauma on the tooth that created the chip or crack and has now caused inflamed or infected pulp. Secondly, the tooth may be so far decayed or infected that it is cracked or chipped from being dead. Either way, you'll need likely a root canal to try to save the remainder of the tooth.
If your gums are tender to the touch, or even without touch, you may have root canal pain. When at the dentist, be sure to mention your tender gums.
