Some of the common procedures involved in this treatment are as follows:-

  • Bleaching: It is a chemical process that is common and most popular. It is done in order to whiten your teeth and also used to make stains disappear. There are many reasons that cause discoloration in the enamel, which can be caused by coffee, tea, cigarettes, medications, etc. It may also be a hereditary problem or caused by old age. A dentist creates a custom mouthpiece to ensure that the whitening solution is taken in the right amount, and he makes sure that your teeth are properly exposed.
  • Fillings: It is used to fill holes which are known as cavities that have formed in your teeth, usually because of decay. The dentist will remove the decayed parts of the tooth and clean the cavity. There are two types of fillings- amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored). Instead of amalgam, composite fillings can be used as a natural looking alternative in teeth that show when you smile or talk.
  • Bonding: It is used to fill gaps or to change the color of the teeth. Its color is similar to that of the tooth and it lasts for several years. Bonds can be used when teeth are chipped or slightly decayed. It can also help to fill small cavities and also to close spaces between the teeth or to change the color of the teeth by changing the entire outside surface of a tooth.
  • Crowns: Your dentist may recommend fitting a crown if your tooth has been broken or weakened by a lot of decay or a large filling. This crown is shaped like a natural tooth then it is fitted over the top of the damaged tooth. Crowns are also known as caps. Crowns can be of many types: it can be made up of porcelain, gold, or combination of metal covered with tooth-colored porcelain.
  • Contouring and reshaping: It is used to correct crooked teeth or irregularly shaped teeth and many such problems. It is commonly used to alter the length, shape, or position of the teeth. This procedure is ideal for the people who have normal, healthy teeth but who want subtle changes to their smile.
  • Veneers: It is thin pieces of porcelain or plastic placed over the front teeth if one of your front teeth is chipped or discolored. Little or no anesthesia is needed in this process, your dentist will first take a mould of your teeth, based on which veneer is made, your dentist will also remove a top layer of your tooth in a small amount and in the next visit veneer will be fixed onto your tooth. It can last for several years, however, it can be damaged just like normal teeth when you meet an accident or because of a break or chip.
  • Straightening teeth: To straighten your teeth to improve their appearance or function orthodontic treatment is used. In this treatment, one has to wear a brace on the teeth, which puts a gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into the right place. One should wear this brace between six months and two years. Usually, this treatment is carried out during childhood. However, adults can also go for it.
  • Dental implant: Dental implant is one of the popular treatment in cosmetic surgery. They are teeth-like materials that are attached permanently to the gums which act as replacement for missing teeth. India is the preferable destination for dental implant because of its low cost. The dental implant cost in India  is Rs. 30,000- Rs. 50,000 which is far less as compared to other countries. The cost can vary depending on type & use of implant and other medical conditions of a patient.

Question and Answers (112)

Can tooth decay be reversed?

Asked anonymously on 4th September, 2022 at 6:40 pm

The short answer is “no” but the long answer is “sort of.”  Here’s why:


The earliest stage of tooth decay or a cavity is demineralized enamel. The outer layer of enamel becomes weak and soft, due to acids and plaque biofilm coming into contact with it on an extended basis.

Fortunately, demineralized enamel can — to an extent — be remineralized before a physical cavity (hole) ruptures through the surface.


What are some ways to help this happen?

  • Improved hygiene and plaque removal on an everyday basis
  • Protective dental sealants over deep grooves and fissures, which are someof the most cavity-prone surfaces
  • Drinking fluoridated tap water throughout the day
  • Supplementation with a prescription strength fluoride or mouthrinse, providedby your dentist
  • Use of everyday oral hygiene products that contain fluoride
  • Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, sharp cheddar cheese, and fewerprocessed carbohydrates
  • Eliminating acidic beverages and those that contain natural or artificial-sweeteners

The types of cells that make up your teeth do not re-grow or repair themselves after the tooth is fully developed.

Once a tooth has a physical cavity (opening or hole) inside of it, there is no feasible way to help the enamel grow back on your own. Instead, the cavity will gradually worsen, due to the bacterial infection inside of the tooth structure.


Ideally, you would want to treat the cavity as soon as it’s diagnosed and while it’s as small as possible. When you do, your dentist can place a minimally invasive filling and preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible.

But untreated cavities will expand to the point that they require larger fillings. Or worse, they will reach into the nerve chamber and create an abscess. What could have initially been treated with a modest restoration now becomes a situation requiring a root canal and a crown

How long does a root canal last without a crown?

Asked anonymously on 5th August, 2022 at 4:59 pm
a root canal done tooth is brittle and can break easily when hard food is chewed .

so root canal will last as long as it doesnot break with pressure of hard food 

by capping the tooth it will not break inspite of having hard food ( depends on quality of cap)
