A fixed dental prosthesis used to fill up the gap between at least two teeth. Which are being fitted with a crown is known as a dental bridge. Dental bridges should be used to bridge gaps between teeth, where teeth is actually missing and in cases where the tooth stump is present. While making a denture, covering existing tooth stumps with a bridge might result in the loss of the tooth over a period of time.
In restorative dentistry, sometimes even an overhanging bridge is made, where the tooth missing after two neighbouring teeth, whose crowns are being re-constructed. Such an over-hanging dental prosthesis only works when placed away from the jaw joint, where the chewing pressures are lesser. Moreover, a dental bridge does not work in longer sequences, as the denture teeth are exposed to high pressures and might result in the loss of a tooth.
In dentistry, a crown refers to the upper part of a tooth protruding from the gingiva. On the other hand, the term dental crown stands for a type of dental restoration, which completely caps a tooth or implant. Crowns are often used to restore the health of a tooth that is threatened for example by a large cavity or damaged by accident. Crowns are anchored to the tooth using dental cement and can be made of a variety of materials.
Metal is a common material choice, as well as crowns made of plastic, ceramic or porcelain. While undisputedly beneficial to dental health, the procedure can be relatively expensive. Please note that the price of crowns is related to the amount of work time invested and not to the material of the crown. Learn more about Dental Crowns in this video.

Deep teeth cleaning (also known as prophylaxis, literally a preventative treatment of a disease) is a procedure for the removal of tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine toothbrushing. It is often done by a dental hygienist. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated.
Total prosthesis is the complete replacement of all of the remaining natural teeth with artificial ones. Hence, total prosthesis is used on toothless jaws and serves the purpose of restoring chewing ability and aesthetics. A total prosthesis is often described as dentures.
Dentists and oral surgeons (dentists with special training to perform surgery) perform tooth extractions. Before pulling the tooth, your dentist will give you an injection of a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed.
Once the tooth has been pulled, a blood clot usually forms in the socket. The dentist will pack a gauze pad into the socket and have you bite down on it to help stop the bleeding. Sometimes the dentist will place a few stitches -- usually self-dissolving -- to close the gum edges over the extraction site.
Invisalign® straightens teeth to give you the confidence of a great smile. Using a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners, Invisalign® gently and gradually moves your teeth based on the treatment plan prescribed by our dentist. There are no wires or brackets so you’ll have confidence in your smile during and after treatment. In fact, most people won’t even know you’re wearing Invisalign®. Invisalign® aligners are removable so you can eat whatever you want and easily brush and floss as you normally would.
A removable dental prosthesis is known as a partial prosthesis or partial dentures. In the case of a partial prosthesis, some portions of the original teeth of the patient also remain in place. Nowadays, partial prosthesis is being increasingly replaced by implant supported dentures.
Nevertheless, partial prosthesis is still being used a provisional solution in certain cases, such as during the implant healing process.
Root canal has to be performed if the dental nerve (Latin: Pulpa) has died and/or is infected. The objective of a root canal is to completely remove the destroyed tissue (which may also be infected with bacteria in some cases) from the interior of the tooth, so that the infection is prevented from spreading to the bone.
To treat a cavity your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then "fill" the area on the tooth where the decayed material was removed.
Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).
Bleaching is a process used to brighten your own natural teeth without any complications. No removal, cutting or etching of your dental enamel takes place.
