Calculus(tartar) is basically deposits which develop on the surfaces of teeth. It needs to be removed for better maintaining good health of the teeth and gums.
Types of Treatments
A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
It is a procedure in which a chemical such as carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide is applied onto the tooth surface which lightens the shade of the teeth 6 to 8 times.
It is the latest way to replace missing teeth wherein a metal screw of appropriate dimension is inserted into the bone and a crown is placed over this once the healing is complete.
A metal-free ceramic crown or cap, as the name implies, does not have any metal and hence mimics a natural tooth to perfection.This is particularly indicated for front teeth, where high aesthetics is desired.
It involves the correction of misaligned, crowded teeth or spacing in the teeth to improve the aesthetics as well as function.
