FIX YOUR TEETH
Fillings are not meant only to repair a tooth that has sustained damage after a bacterial attack or trauma; they can recreate and replicate the anatomy of a tooth to make it look absolutely flawless! At Lachot Smiles, we use only the finest, top-of-the-line dental materials to give your teeth a natural shade, feel and strength thus eliminating every sign of caries, minor fractures and other dental discrepancies. We offer you a wide range of options in dental fillings according to you individual case requirements and budget. Some of our most prominent treatments in this regard include:
- Tooth Colored Fillings: Composite resin fillings, popularly known as white or tooth colored fillings are currently the top choice of leading dentists especially in cases where maintenance or enhancement of dental aesthetics is a prominent consideration. Composite fillings can conveniently be used to replace tooth structure damaged by caries without risks of leakage, filling failure, or unhealthy mercury exposure (such as in case of amalgam fillings). This versatile filling material can also be used to repair chipped edges, teeth affected by signs of wear such as abrasion or attrition, and even closure of gaps by direct adhesion. Along with remarkable strength, composites also offer cosmetic benefits as they can match the exact shade of adjacent natural teeth in the oral cavity.
- Metal-free Porcelain Crowns: Crowns, also called caps, are used to cover teeth that have sustained significant loss of structure due to caries, fracture or following Root Canal procedures. These caps protect the remaining natural tooth structure from further damage, while restoring its functionality and aesthetics. Unlike conventional metal crowns, Porcelain or Tooth-Colored Crowns offer the advantage of aesthetics restoration. With their 100% metal free fabrication, these crowns are made to match the exact shade of the natural teeth in the oral cavity. They possess natural feel, color and contour making it difficult to distinguish between a laboratory fabricated crown, and a natural tooth.
- Gingival Grafts: Gingival recession is one of the most common complications of severe periodontal/gum-related infections. In cases (such as aggressive periodontitis) where the gum recession is rapid, uncontrolled and irreversible, gingival grafts play a vital role in preventing exposure of the root portion of the tooth, mobility and early tooth loss. The infected, recessed portion of the gums is surgically replaced using healthy gingival grafts in order to restore healthy texture, color and tooth support.
- Fissure Sealants: Fissure sealants are basically resin based filling materials that are applied on to the occlusal or biting surfaces of the posterior teeth to prevent caries. While this procedure is generally meant for younger patients that cannot maintain good oral hygiene on their own, adults too can benefit from it. The procedure is quick, painless and non-invasive; it involves application of a filling material on the top portion of the molars in particular to protect them from bacterial attacks. This is because the occlusal portion of molar is naturally uneven, making it susceptible to plaque accumulation and decay.
