PROCEDURES


SMILE MAKEOVERS / VENEERS

A veneer is a thin layer of tooth like material which is placed over the existing tooth surface, to improve the esthetics of a tooth with regards to color or position or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Multiple veneers can close spaces between teeth, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear or ageing, provide uniform color, shape and symmetry and make the teeth appear “straight”.

There are two types of materials used to fabricate a veneer; composite resin and dental porcelain. A composite resin veneer is directly placed (built-up in the mouth) by the Dentist. In contrast, a porcelain veneer is indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory and later bonded to the tooth by the Dentist. 

Veneers can be chosen for

1)   Smile makeovers.
2)   Discolored tooth.
3)   Diastemas/spaces between teeth.
4)   Malpositioned teeth.
5)   Fractured tooth.
6)   Microdontia (Small sized teeth).


Custom designed Smile Makeovers can be effected to suit the individuals age, personality, image aspiration and built to give maximum impact to the smile using veneers. Our veneers are made with chosen state of the art material from only the finest manufacturers chosen from various countries worldwide.

IMPLANT

A dental implant is like an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support crowns and bridges that replace a tooth or group of teeth. It is a permanent solution to reinstate a missing tooth.

It is a titanium screw-like structure which is anchored into the jaw bones and functions similar to a natural tooth. Implants can be placed in areas where natural teeth are either lost due to decay or trauma or when a tooth cannot be saved and has to be extracted.

The implant then heals and osseointegrates with the adjacent bone which takes about 4-6 months. After this healing process is completed, a tooth like crown is fabricated over the implant.

CROWNS AND BRIDGES

Crown is a dental restoration otherwise known as "a cap" which covers the entire tooth.
It may be required in case of:

1)   Extensive damage by decay.
2)   Broken down old or very large fillings.
3)   Fractured, chipped or sensitive teeth.
4)   Root canal treated teeth.
5)   Discolored unesthetic teeth.
6)   Esthetically compromised teeth.

A bridge is placed in case of missing tooth/teeth with teeth on either sides of the open space. A Bridge which stays fixed is used to replace one or several teeth. The teeth on each end of the space are used as anchors (abutments) for support. Bridges are not removable by the patient.

We provide a variety of crowns and bridges such as:

1)   All ceramic crowns ( LAVA, EMPRESS )
2)   Porcelain fused to gold.
3)   Porcelain fused to metal.

Our Crowns & Bridges are fabricated with materials sourced from some of the best manufacturers worldwide. This ensures that our patients get the finest in terms of quality for longevity & dazzling esthetics.

WHITENING

If you are looking for a fast way to dramatically whiten your teeth, our Zoom2 Chair side Whitening System may be the answer for you. In just 45 minutes, this safe and effective system can give you the instant results you've been wanting! The smile becomes whiter and vital. A specially designed light activates the Zoom! Whitening Gel to gently break down stains on your teeth to put the sparkle back in your smile! Also with the new Zoom2 system, our patients experience up to 67% less sensitivity. There is no damage to the teeth or permanent side effects. Some patients may manifest a transient sensitivity which may last for a few hours.

How does the Zoom! in-office system work?
The Zoom! light activated whitening gel's active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth to change its shade.


LASER

Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. Dental lasers emit light that deliver quick pulses of heat energy to the treatment area. Various wavelengths are used depending on the type of tissue being treated. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for "curing" a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth beaching agents. Compared to the traditional dental drill, lasers:
  • May cause less pain in some instances, therefore, reducing the need for anesthesia
  • May reduce anxiety in patients uncomfortable with the use of the dental drill
  • Minimize bleeding and swelling during soft tissue treatments
  • May preserve healthier tooth during cavity removal.
Hard Tissue (Tooth) Laser Dentistry Procedures
  • Cavity Detector: Low intensity soft tissue dental lasers may be used for the early detection of cavities by providing a reading of the by-products produced by tooth decay.
  • Dental Fillings/Tooth Preparation: Hard tissue dental lasers may eliminate the need for a local anesthetic injection and the traditional turbine dental drill. Lasers used in dental filling procedures are capable of killing bacteria located in a cavity, potentially leading to improved long term tooth restorations.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: Dental lasers may be used to seal tubules (located on the root of the tooth) that are responsible for hot and cold tooth sensitivity.
Soft Tissue (Gum) Laser Dentistry Procedures
  • Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.
  • Gummy Smile: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
  • Muscle Attachment (Frenula): A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.
  • Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis): Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.
  • Pericoronitis: Dental lasers can be used for the painless removal of the infected and swollen gum tissues, which is frequently seen around the third molars.
Lasers represent an innovative and more precise technology for specific hard and soft tissue applications.

INFECTION CONTROL
Three dental operatories with the latest dental equipment designed ergonomically to maximize infection control form the core of The Dental Studio.

Cabinetry, designed and fit to minimize cross contamination and to assist in efficient disinfection in all treatment rooms, keeps the instruments clean and sterile.

State of the art scrubbing, pouching and autoclaving systems ensure sterility and allow for rapid healing post treatment following all procedures.

A rigorous and co-ordinated disinfection and sterilisation schedule is instituted post treatment and at regular intervals.

Disposable materials

We use a fresh, new pair of gloves for every patient that is disposed off immediately after the treatment is completed. In addition we use disposable face masks, suction tips and glasses. All local anaesthetic is given from sealed cartridges and needles that are opened in front of you and disposed off immediately after treatment. Dentists and patients mandatorily wear protective glasses during tooth whitening and LASER surgical procedures to prevent any harm to the eyes.

DIGITAL DENTAL OPG: (For full mouth)

Digital OPG, commonly known as Panorex or full mouth radiograph gives a complete image of all the teeth and jaw bones thereby enabling the doctors to diagnose better.

We have a state of the art in house digital OPG machine by Kodak in a specially designed room where we meticulously follow safety norms to prevent any kind of radiation leakage. The OPG is made and stored on our server which then enables viewing on any of our multiple screens.

DIGITAL X-RAY: (For Selected Teeth)

We have digital x- ray facility (RVG by Kodak) in every operatory. It shows quality of the bone, teeth and lesions. The best part of this x- ray is that it is very comfortable to shoot immediate and multiple x rays during root canal treatment, implant insertion and prosthetic procedures so that we can perform imaging oriented procedures more accurately.
