WHITE FILLINGS LOOK NATURAL AND CLOSELY MATCH TO THE COLOR OF THE PRESENT TEETH. MOST DENTAL PLANS COVER WHITE FILLINGS.
A filling is used to repair a tooth that has a cavity or chipped. It can also close spaces between teeth. After removing the decayed part, the cavity will be filled with a filling material.
Composite fillings and Silver filling are two of the materials that are usually used to fill cavities.
There are also other types of restorations to fill cavities like lab made inlays and onlays. Inlay and onlays are bonded or cemented to the teeth and last longer than direct fillings. Your dentist may discuss which option is more recommended to restore your tooth.
Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Crowns or caps cover damaged teeth to restore its original shape. Crowns protect and strengthen tooth structure where fillings or other types of restorations are not suitable.
A dental bridge is a fixed or removable appliance with artificial teeth to replace missing ones.
Root Canal Treatment
A ROOT CANAL TREATMENT IS PERFORMED TO SAVE AND REPAIR A SEVERELY BROKEN OR INFECTED TOOTH.
The procedure involves removing the pulp (the live tissue inside the tooth), cleaning and disinfecting root canals and then filling and sealing it.
THE COMMON CAUSES THAT DISTURB THE PULP ARE:
- A Deep Cavity
- A cracked Tooth
- Repeated dental treatment
- Or Trauma.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT WILL HELP:
Preserve your appearance by retaining the affected tooth
Allow chewing with comfort
Maintain neighboring teeth in their positions
