Dental Veneers– Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth’s surface from damage. Composite and dental porcelain are two type of material used to fabricate a veneer. A composite veneer can be either directly placed (built-up in the mouth) or can be indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental lab, and later bonded to the tooth.
Amalgam Fillings– Amalgam is an alloy of mercury with various metals used for dental fillings. It commonly comprises of mercury (50%), silver (~22–32%), tin (~14%), copper (~8%), and other trace metals. Dental amalgam is a mixture of metals, consisting of liquid (elemental) mercury and a powdered alloy composed of tin, silver, and copper dental filling material used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay. Elemental mercury is 50% by weight in dental amalgam. The chemical properties of elemental mercury allow it to react with and bind together the silver/copper/tin alloy particles to form an amalgam.
Gingivitis-Gingivitis is a non-destructive periodontal disease that refers to inflammation of the gum tissue. Gingivitis is controllable with good oral hygiene. If Gingivitis is not treated or is not controlled gingivitis can lead to periodontitis, where the inflammation results in the destruction of tissue and alveolar bone resorption, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss.
Cosmetic Dentistry– Cosmetic Dentistry deals with any dental work which improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person’s teeth, gums and bite. Techniques to treat teeth that are chipped, discolored, missing are bonding, bleaching, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring. Many of these treatments can resolve the oral problems, such as your bite.
Orthodontics– It is a branch of dentistry which corrects teeth and jaws that are not positioned properly. Teeth that do not fit together correctly and Crooked teeth are difficult to keep clean and possess the risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease . These type of teeth also cause extra stress on the chewing muscles and eventually lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome, neck, shoulder and back pain. Orthodontic treatment can help fix the patient’s teeth and set them in the required place. Orthodontists usually use braces and clear aligners to set the patient’s teeth.
Endodontics– It is a branch of Dentistry which deals with the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp.

Braces– These are devices used in orthodontics that straightens and align teeth and helps to position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, moth bites, cross bites, crooked teeth and deep bites. Dental braces are often used in combination with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
Mouth guard– A mouth guard is a protective device for the mouth which covers the teeth, gums and prevent as well as reduces injury to the teeth, arches, lips, and gums. A mouth guard is generally used to prevent injury in contact sports, as part of certain dental procedures, as tooth bleaching, as a treatment for bruxism or TMD.
Periodontitis– Periodontitis is a set of inflammatory diseases which affects the periodontium. It is a serious gum infection which damages the soft tissue and destroys the supporting bone of your teeth. If periodontitis untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth. It can be the reason for tooth loss or worse, the risk of heart attack or stroke and other serious health problems.
Human Teeth-The function of Human teeth is to break down items of food mechanically by cutting and crushing them in preparation for swallowing and digestion. The roots of teeth are embedded in the maxilla known as upper jaw or the mandible known as lower jaw) and are covered by gums. Teeth are made of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.
