Cosmetic bonding treatment can renew your smile.

Cosmetic bonding treatment is a cosmetic dental treatment which has been long used to transform a patients smile.
The cosmetic bonding treatment is specialised and involves a lot of the dentists artistic skill.  The cosmetic dentist will mould the correct amount and colour of dental composite for the patients ’ teeth, the composite is an resin which is moulded to a patients teeth to replace metal fillings,  reshape teeth , close gaps, and restore broken or chipped teeth.

The main use of cosmetic bonding treatments is for composite white fillings, as the dental composite bonding material can match the shade, luminousness and texture of a patients own natural  teeth. Silver fillings can be unsightly when a patient smiles, tooth coloured composite can replace old metal fillings. Cosmetic bonding is suited to smaller cavities in a patients teeth, as the material is not suitable for large areas.

untitled1Composite bonding treatment requires the cosmetic dentist to numb the area in the patients mouth by local anaesthetic.
The patients tooth surface, which the composite will be applied, will be cleaned to remove debris, the composite requires
a hygienic surface to bond to. The dentist will then choose a correct shade of composite, the tooth is shaped or contoured by the dentist.
The composite is then applied to the roughened tooth surface and exposed to a special light source, which activates and hardens the composite to set. The composite can be applied to a patients tooth in several thin layers , around 1mm-2mm until  the dentist has achieved the desired shape, translucency and texture. The dentist will then use their skill to polish the composite to achieve the desired shape and level finish.

Useful Dental Tools : Dental Crowns

Posted in Dental Bridges by UK Dental Tourism on February 14, 2010

A dental crown is a ceramic cap that is cemented over an existing tooth to repair damage or to restore its cosmetic appearance. It is most commonly used to cap teeth that have been filled or to protect teeth broken as the result of a head trauma.

There are many ways a tooth can be damaged. Sporting injuries account for up to 50 per cent of dental injuries. Dentists advise wearing a mouth guard when playing any sport with a high level of physical contact or that can involve any kind of collision. However it is still common for teeth to be chipped, cracked or broken when playing sport. Teeth are also commonly damaged in motor vehicle accidents or from simply accidentally chewing on hard food. Damage to teeth will initially be repaired with composite dental bonding. This tooth coloured resin is used to fill cracks and repair chips but it can itself be susceptible to damage. Dentists therefore often use a dental crown to sit over the damaged tooth to protect it from further injury.

Dental crowns are also used to protect teeth that have had cavity fillings. This is especially true of teeth with large cavities as dental bonding, used as a filling material, is weaker in large areas. Crowns are also used to protect teeth that have been subject to a root canal procedure. This is when an infected tooth has been hollowed to remove the infection. A dental crown is the last step in a complex process designed to preserve the functionality of the patient’s original tooth and prevent extraction.

Dental crowns are commonly manufactured from porcelain, a type of ceramic with a similar consistency and appearance to tooth enamel. Modern crowns are increasingly fabricated using the latest computer-aided technology. Using 3D imaging and digital x-rays dentists can construct images of the patients’ teeth on a computer. They can then use this information to manufacture a dental crown by milling it from a single piece of porcelain in as little as six minutes. This new technology has reduced treatment time for patients and improved the accuracy of treatment.

Dental crowns are very versatile and useful dental tools that can prevent the need for further treatment. Patients with damaged teeth should make an appointment with a Dentist in Shimla to discuss the benefits of dental crowns.

Tooth Replacement : Dental Bridge

Having a tooth knocked out or losing it to dental decay can be a very painful experience but people rarely consider the pain and anxiety that comes as a result of a missing tooth. Firstly, a missing tooth can be very embarrassing, especially in the teeth visible when smiling or talking. This can have serious repercussions for a patient’s self-confidence and esteem.

But a missing tooth can have more than just psychological effects on a patient. A missing tooth in the dental arch can create a breeding ground for bacteria. Because the soft tissue is difficult to clean with a regular brush, it needs special attention to keep the hollow clean and prevent the spread of dangerous infections. A vacant space in the arc can also cause the remaining teeth to lean and shift about. This can cause irritating alterations to bite . If left untreated this irritation can develop into a painful jaw condition called TMJ problems. It can also be the cause of sub-conscious teeth grinding known as bruxism. In cases where more than one tooth is lost, the loss of the rigid teeth structure can cause the facial tissue to sink, a process which becomes irreversible of not addressed in sufficient time.

It is therefore important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. One of the most common artificial dental substitutes is called a dental bridge.A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. This involves making a bridge from an artificial tooth attached to existing teeth on either side of the gap. If teeth are healthy and strong, the artificial tooth, known as a pontic from the Latin word for bridge, is attached with resin-bonded strips. If the teeth are not of sufficient quality the pontic will be attached to crowns cemented over the adjacent teeth.The materials used for the bridges include gold, porcelain fused to metal, or in the correct situation porcelain alone.

Dental bridges are effective substitutes for real teeth. They are fixed substitutes unlike partial dentures or dental plates, so patients do not have to worry about the embarrassment of them falling out. If properly cared for and cleaned, a dental bridge can last for more than ten years. If you have suffered the pain of a knocked out or decayed tooth, ask a your dentist about a dental bridge and you could restore your teeth to full functionality and restore their cosmetic appearance.
