A filling is a material placed directly in your tooth to revive it. It restores the morphology and function of the missing tooth structure. Loss in tooth structure is generally caused by damage to two cavities or external trauma. After cleaning the damaged tooth structure gently, a filling is placed to restore the tooth. This filling is customized according to the shade of your tooth. Most fillings used these days are made of composite, which is a strong material matched to the color of the tooth having an ability to bond and provide extra durability to your tooth. It enables you to withstand moderate pressure caused by chewing.
Make a visit to Dual Image Dentistry if you think you have a cavity or need filling.
CROWNS & BRIDGES
Crown is used to restore the functionality of teeth by covering or capping broken or damaged teeth. Dental crowns can be made of a variety of materials but porcelain is preferred due to its durability and aesthetics. Our dentists expertly create beautifully shaped grounds that are customized to the color of your natural teeth. Crowns can be a great solution for the following dental problems:
- Repair fractured or cracked teeth.
- Repair teeth that are damaged due to cavities.
- Restore the existing fillings that are about to break.
A bridge is a permanent form of dental restoration that is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth by joining a crown to the adjacent teeth. The teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are crowned to bridge the space, providing the appearance of a natural tooth. It is not just about the appearance, it also restores the functionality of the area. Just like a single crown that is used to cover one tooth, our bridges with natural shape and color remain cemented to your teeth permanently without any need for removal. Our custom-made bridges are a great solution to restore your smile and replace your missing teeth. They are barely noticeable. On top of restoring your smile, bridges have many other advantages including restoration of your ability to speak, eat and chew properly. The bridge distributes the force of your bite over more teeth and prevents the remaining teeth from shifting and tilting.

Root canals are used to treat the teeth that are too severely damaged to treat with crowns or fillings alone. Root canals are appropriate when there is an infection in the nerve of the tooth due to the cavity all if the nerve is damaged from trauma. Root canal treatment repairs the unhealthy tooth by treating the nerve inside the damaged tooth. In this treatment, the affected portion of the tooth is removed, and the inner side of the tooth is completely disinfected and sealed. Once the tooth is healed, it restores back to its original function. While root canals were known to be painful in the past, new advancements in the field have made them a painless treatment. With the help of our modern local anesthetics techniques, you will have a comfortable and convenient treatment without any pain.
