Teeth whitening is a widely preferred cosmetic procedure. Dr. Ghassan Mehtar uses a whitening agent to clear any stains or spots on the teeth and restore their natural color. The process is inexpensive and quick.
A dental crown is like a shield for any damaged tooth. It has a tooth-like structure, except it is hollow on the inside. You can have crowns to restore, reshape, resize or strengthen any damaged tooth. Crowns are also utilized to cover implants or to hold a dental bridge. They imitate our natural teeth and are not damaged easily.
Dental bridges consist of one or more crowns for teeth on either side of a hole. The crowns help support the prosthetic tooth in between them. Bridges help with both the aesthetic and functional purpose of the teeth.
Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored, thin appliances secured on the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. They are made up of porcelain material and help cover the imperfections on the tooth and make them look more appealing.
Dental implants are screw-like posts fitted in the jawbone as a replacement to the tooth roots. An implant has a crown fitted on the top, and the entire structure best imitates our natural tooth. Implants are made of titanium, giving them the required strength and durability. They have excellent stability and do not affect the neighboring teeth.
It is the process of using a tooth-colored resin to repair any damage to the teeth. The resin can be used to resize, repair, fill gaps and even restore the color of the teeth. Dental bonding is one of the least expensive dentistry treatments and provides highly satisfactory results.
