It is a tooth colored filling material. Composites build the missing tooth structure or close gaps in-between the teeth. It bonds to the tooth to provide the fastest and cheapest way to improve the asthetics. Although it does not provide a permanent solution and repetition requires over the years.
Orthodontics:- it involves the use of Braces / Invasalign to correct the position of the teeth. It involves placement of Nickel Titanium wires which slowly pushes the teeth to the ideal position in jaw. It takes around 1.5 – 2 years for the treatment in most cases.
They are either ceramic or composite materials. It is approximately 0.3-1 mm thick. It is brittle in nature and bonded to the labial surface (Front suface) of the tooth.
This laminates or veneers the teeth similar to mica sheet (brittle in nature) bonded to the plywood. It almost have a similar as that of the wood.
It is one of the best methods used to correct the shape, size & colour of teeth without affecting the natural teeth.
Crown / Bridge :-
A fabrication of different material like Acrylic / Metal / Metal+Ceramic / All Ceramic. It provides high strength to the remaining tooth structure. It changes the shape, size, colour and position of the teeth. This involves cutting of the tooth structure from all around. Taking an impression which is later sent to the lab for fabrication. Average costing in Lucknow is between 2500/- to 14000/- depending on the material selected.
Teeth Cleaning / Scaling:-
Scaling involves the use of an ultrasonic instrument on tooth. It results in removal of stain /plaque/ calculus/ attached to the outer most area of the tooth.
Tooth bleeching/ whitening:-
It is a process similar to that of facial bleeching. The use of Hydrogen-per-oxide in strong concentration to change the colour of teeth. Generally, it is for mild to moderate discoloured teeth.
Dental implants of Grade-5 Titanium finds similarity to a screw. It takes the area of missing teeth by removing some part of the bone. It is the most natural and comfortable way of replacing the missing teeth. Crowns are generally placed an top of these implants. The average costing of the implants are between 17000/- to 50000/- per tooth depending the quality of Implant used.
Gum Recontouring / Gingival esthetic:-
It plays a very important role for smile designing. Specially for the anterior/front teeth. All teeth should have a ideal size and shape as compared to the adjacent contra-lateral teeth. It for esthetic reason. We may have cut the gums to bring them at the same level of adjacent teeth. The methods used are Blade / Electrocoutery / Laser. Although Laser removal or recontouring will enhance the healing process.
