There are several reasons for tooth discoloration. Few of them are coffee, tea stains, tobacco stains, pan & gutka stains, etc., Old filling, traumatized tooth also leads to staining. Some stains may observed since childhood like florosis stains (brown stains), tetracycline stains, etc.
Tooth Bleaching is a procedure where most of the stains are removed. Mild acidic agents are applied on the tooth and activated by LED curing light of high intensity. This is called In- Office Bleaching. For some people In Home bleaching is also recommend where bleaching agents are applied via specialized trays.
At Star Dental Hospital we use a powerful Tooth whitening system that is a combination of superior technology and patient friendly design for achieving best results.
Tooth Colored Restorations
During the past dental cavities and tooth fractures are filled or repaired with traditional materials like gold, silver amalgam, etc. As the technology has advanced tooth colored restorative materials are available in the market.
The major advantage of these materials is the esthetics where these materials blend with the adjacent tooth surface. Also these materials have higher strengths and are free of mercury toxicity. These are called composite materials, which have a better flow into the cavity and superior strength. These materials have slowly replaced the conventional amalgam fillings to restore new cavities as well as replace older fillings. Finishing and polishing of composite restorations increases the lusture and life of the material.
At star dental we follow international norms for restoring the tooth in terms of isolation of tooth and sterilization of instruments.
Veneers & Laminates
Dental Veneers are very thin pieces of either porcelain or resin composite which covers the front of the teeth in order to simulate natural look. These are usually preferred when there is a minimal change in size, shape or color of the tooth. The main advantage of the veneers is, minimal tooth surface removal compared to full crowns, usually less than a millimeter. Veneers are commonly used in situations where the original tooth should be adjusted in terms of color, shape and contour. Also in conditions where there are minor gaps between the teeth, minor bite related issues, fractured tooth, etc.
These are also preferred in conditions like flourosis stains, superficial stains that do not respond to teeth whitening procedures
