Teeth whitening: Teeth whitening is an ideal option for people who want attractive teeth with a glowing smile. It can make your teeth brighter, removing all the stains and discoloration. These stains might be caused by aging, or beverages, food, or by smoking.
Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers can help in repairing or restoring cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. It can help in improving the strength and function of the teeth. They also have the property of resisting stain.
Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is another way of repairing cracks and discolorations. Dental bonding uses tooth-colored durable plastic material. The material is placed on your teeth and made hard with a special light, which "bonds" it to your tooth enamel.
Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns are usually placed over a tooth to hide imperfections. They are customized metal crowns and are colored in a way to match the adjoining teeth. They are a better choice for the front or back teeth and also for the long bridges where the metal is needed for strength.
Porcelain Inlays/Onlays: Porcelain Inlays/Onlays are used in replacing the old amalgam fillings.
Invisalign:Invisalign can help in straightening or realigning teeth. They are a better alternative to metal braces.
Gummy smile correction:This treatment is for people who show too much gum when they smile.
Full smile makeover:Smile makeover provides an option to have multiple procedures performed at one time. In this, all functional and aesthetic dental needs are also kept in the notice. It also includes partial or full dentures, bridges, and dental implants.
