Scaling is a common dental procedure for patients who come to us with gum disease. This is a type of dental cleaning that reaches below the gumline to remove plaque buildup. The process of scaling and root planing the teeth is often referred to as a deep cleaning.
Everyone experiences some form of plaque buildup. The saliva, bacteria, and proteins in your mouth form a thin layer that covers your teeth at almost all times. When you eat, tiny particles, acids, and sugars from the food stick to this film, creating a buildup on the teeth known as plaque. The bacteria that lives in this plaque can cause gum disease and tooth decay. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings will help remove the plaque and prevent more serious problems.
If you have healthy gums, the tissue will fit tightly around the tooth and keep plaque out. However, if gum disease begins to form, this tissue will loosen. Healthy gums attach to the tooth just 1 to 3 millimeters below the gumline. With gum disease, you’ll begin to develop deeper pockets. These can fill with plaque, worsening your problems and causing symptoms like bad breath.
I went to the dental home for teeth cleaning and polishing. Am very happy with their work and their charges are too very reasonable.
I went for build-up of my fractured tooth. It was done so beautifully that it is impossible to distinguish from my natural tooth. Am very satisfied.
Composite or porcelain laminates that are bonded with adhesive to the surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks will improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening. Procedure involves diagnostic mock-up of the teeth to show you how corrected teeth would look on you. Once you have approved your new teeth, dentist will do mild shaping of teeth then replica of prepared teeth will be sent to the lab to make veneers and in the next appointment veneers will be cemented. Regular follow ups and flossing will be necessary to maintain your newly made smile.
Slightly discolored, mildly chipped, broken or decayed teeth may be repaired or have their appearance corrected using a procedure called composite bonding. A dental composite material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity blue visible light. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the remainder of the surrounding tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth to create a healthy, bright smile. Dental fillings today may also be considered cosmetic to a certain extent because you can select fillings made of porcelain or composite materials that closely match the color of your teeth, thus enhancing the natural appearance of your teeth and smile.
