Dental Implant


A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Prosthodontics



Crown

A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function.

Bridge


Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge.

Veneer


A veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth's surface from damage. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain.

Denture


A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available -- complete and partial dentures.

Tooth Whiteening


Tooth whitening - lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Most dentists perform tooth whitening.

Periodontics



Periodontics: The branch of dentistry that is concerned with prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect the gums and supporting structures of the teeth

Gum Treatment


Orthodontics


ORTHODONTICS is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one's appearance.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.

Endodontics


ENDODONTIC- the branch of dentistry dealing with the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp, usually by removal of the nerve and other tissue of the pulp cavity and its replacement with suitable filling material; pulp canal therapy; root canal therapy.

Wisdom Tooth


Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth— the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.
If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it pulled. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon. Some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren't causing problems, as a preventive measure against potential future problem.

Orthognathic


Is surgery to correct conditions of the jaw & face related to structure, growth, TMJ disorders or other orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces.

Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is surgery to treat many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and Crania-maxillofacial (jaws and face) region.

VENEER RESTORATION


Veneer is a type of restoration that would improve the appearance of the teeth. It is commonly done on upper front teeth. It has the advantage of minimally prepared the teeth involved compared to full crown, or cap. It can be done to improve or change the shape, size, colour and alignment of the front teeth to make them more beautiful. It either can cover only the front part of the teeth, or both the front part and the end of the teeth, depending on the purpose of treatment. Veneer can be done on a single tooth, or multiple teeth. Better aesthetic result can be achieved with multiple veneers.

The teeth need to be prepared or drilled to a certain dimension to accommodate the veneer. Veneer is an extremely thin shell porcelain or composite resin, cemented to the teeth. Tricks on cementation can be applied to improve the aesthetic as the cement comes in many colours.

With current technologies, veneer can be done in a single visit. Pre-shaped casings are available in the market to construct veneer directly to the teeth. Usually, composite resin is used with the casing. Old methods would involve at least two visits to the dentist, as the porcelain veneer would be fabricated in the laboratory on the model or cast of the prepared teeth. The dentist will construct temporary restoration if it involved two or multiple visits. Therefore, patient will still have pleasant appearance during the treatment period. Patient can give feedback to the dentist on the shape and size of veneers as this would improve the aesthetics of the teeth.

The main downside of veneer is they are easily chipped off or fractured. This is due to the minimal thickness of the veneer, together with the brittle nature of porcelain. Patient must be very careful not to bite on anything hard with the veneered teeth as to prevent fracture. One of the ways that can be done is to cut the food into small pieces and chew with the back of the teeth. The other disadvantage is it could dislodge from tooth. This could be due to the failure of the cement used, either inappropriate type of cement of incorrect technique during cementation being applied. Staining of the veneer is very uncommon especially if its porcelain veneer. Discoloration could happen if the veneer made from composite resin.

Veneer requires easy maintenance. Normal brushing and flossing are enough to maintain the health of the gum around the veneer. It is important to keep the gum healthy to ensure longevity of the veneer, which can last up to 5-7 years.

Case selection is very crucial too. Proper planning must be done if the patient presented with certain habit such as grinding at night, or the presenting teeth are short. Stabilization of caries and gum disease also need to be performed before proceeding with veneer. The dentist will do some examination and would come up with the best treatment planning.
