Also known as tooth whitening and swabbing, is a common procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Bleaching methods use carbamide peroxide which reacts with water to form hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide oxidizing agent penetrates the porosities in the rod-like crystal structure of enamel and bleaches stain deposits in the dentin. Power bleaching uses light energy to accelerate the process of bleaching in a dental office.
In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect damage to a tooth’s surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth.
Hyaluronic Acid:Hyaluronic acid is a component of our tissues. Age and sun exposure are the two main factors that lead to its depletion from our skin. Hyaluronic acid injections can fill in wrinkles and restore tone and volume to the face and lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to treat facial wrinkles and creases and to plump up the lips. They are one of the most common cosmetic treatments because they replace the natural hyaluronic acid that is depleted over time.
A dental implant is an artificial root , usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace the one that are missing. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.
Dental extraction:A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth. Crowns restore a tooth’s shape and size, strength, and/or improve its appearance.
A dental crown may be needed to:
• protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
• restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
• cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
• hold a dental bridge in place
• cover misshaped or severely discoloured teeth
• cover a dental implant
• cover a tooth that has been endodontically treated (had a root canal)
A crown covers the entire tooth whereas inlays and on lays cover the underlying tooth to a lesser extent.
Unlike amalgam which essentially just fills a hole and requires retention features to hold the filling, resin composite , when used with dentin and enamel bonding techniques, restore the tooth back to near its original physical integrity. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Scale and polish:A Scaling is the removal of plaque, calculus (also known as tartar), and stains from the tooth structures. It is accomplished using dental instruments that scrape away deposits from the teeth.
Because it is not a cosmetic procedure it does not remove all stain, especially where the stain is due to smoking, red wine or food dyes. These could be removed with Sodium Bicarbonate Jet Washes.
Your teeth will be cleaned gently with a specially developed device. A spray of air, sodium bicarbonate and a water jet meet to quickly and painlessly remove bacteria, plaque and soft deposit from interproximal spaces and smooth surfaces of the teeth.
The Jet wash Method removes stains but will not whiten your teeth in the same way as Tooth Bleaching.
