Restorative Dentistry:
In dentistry, crown and bridge (Restorative Dentistry) refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. Once your dentist has examined your teeth and has evaluated your dental and medical history, he/she will be ready to provide a diagnosis, and treatment options. A crown may be constructed to restore an individual damaged tooth back to its original form and function, while a bridge may be utilized to replace one or more teeth. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and are referred to as "fixed" dentistry as opposed to a restoration of missing teeth with a removable appliance or partial denture.

Teeth Whitening:

Tooth whitening can be a highly effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete color change; but it will lighten the existing shade. Your dentist will need to assess your teeth to make sure that you are suitable for the treatment. Once it has been agreed, this procedure usually takes about one hour. You can help to keep your teeth white by cutting down on the amount of food and drink you have that can stain teeth. Don't forget, stopping smoking can also help prevent discoloring and staining.

Veneers and Lumineers:

Ultra-thin LUMINEERS are custom designed to give you the beautiful smile you've always dreamed of.

Plus-LUMINEERS are proven to last for over 20 years, so your beautiful smile will be with you for years and years.
Porcelain veneers, alternatively termed dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front side of teeth so to create a cosmetic improvement for a tooth. Porcelain veneers are routinely used by dentists as a way to make cosmetic changes for teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned.

Digital X-rays:
Digital X-rays also called dental radiographs are among the most valuable tools a dentist has for keeping your mouth and teeth healthy. By understanding what the structures of the mouth look like normally on an X-ray film, dentists can diagnose problems in the teeth and jaws. For adults, radiographs can:
1- Show areas of decay that your dentist may not be able to see with just a visual examination, such as tiny pits of decay that might occur between teeth
2- Reveal problems in the root canal, such as infection.
3-Help your dentist plan, prepare and place tooth implants, orthodontic treatments, dentures or other dental work

Root Canal Treatment:
Root canal therapy refers to the process by which a dentist treats the inner aspects of a tooth, specifically that area inside a tooth that is occupied by its "pulp tissue." Most people would probably refer to a tooth's pulp tissue as its "nerve." While a tooth's pulp tissue does contain nerve fibers it is also composed of arteries, veins, lymph vessels, and connective tissue.

Prosthetic Dentistry (crowns and bridges):
When one or more teeth have a large old filling, are fractured, severely damaged by decay, or missing, Dentists recommend the placement of a crown (cap) or a bridge. A crown strengthens, restores and protects a single tooth while a bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. Crowns and bridges are anchored using a special adhesive and are not removable.

Dentists also recommend either gold or porcelain crowns or bridges. Both types offer unique advantages.

Paediatric Dentistry:
The aim of the specialty of paediatric dentistry is to improve the oral health care of infants, children and adolescents through appropriate preventive, educational and treatment services. There is a very broad nature of work undertaken which requires a skilled combination of medical, dental and communication skills training.

Implant Dentistry:
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth.
Virtually all dental implants placed today are root-form end osseous implants. In other words, virtually all dental implants placed in the 21st century appear similar to an actual tooth root (and thus possess a "root-form") and are placed within the bone.

Periodontics (US scaling, Gum and Bone Surgery):
Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious diseases that result in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
Gum disease is a threat to your oral health. Research is also pointing to possible health effects of periodontal diseases that go well beyond your mouth (more about this later). Whether it is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.
Our mouths are full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless "plaque" on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form bacteria-harboring "tartar" that brushing doesn't clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.

Oral Surgery:
Oral surgery is the area of medicine concerned with correcting problems or damage to the mouth, teeth and jaw. It is often referred to as "Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" which combines oral surgery with surgery on the structures of the face, sinuses and neck.
Oral surgery is commonly performed to remove wisdom teeth, prepare the mouth for dentures, repair jaw problems and perform root canals. Oral surgeons may also perform more advanced procedures as required after trauma or severe disease damages the structures of the mouth.
