Bonding

Bonding is a dental solution to give you a smooth and improved smile. Dental bonding may be used to:

* Repair cracked, chipped, or uneven teeth

* Replace old or unattractive mercury fillings

* Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)

* Improve the appearance of discolored teeth

* Close spaces between teeth

* Change the shape of teeth

* Protect a portion of exposed roots of teeth.

Dr. Minocha will carefully match the shade of your teeth to ensure a natural looking, even smile.

 

Bridges

A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth.  Bridges can help to correct some bite issues, improve speech, and improve confidence. There are
a number of different types of bridges. Together you and Dr. Lali Minocha can decide which is best for your situation.

 

Crowns

A dental crown is a covering that is placed over the visible surface of the damaged tooth to give a healthy and natural tooth appearance. A crown may be used
on teeth that are affected by grinding your teeth, an improper bite, age, fillings, and tooth decays. Crowns restore a tooth to its original shape, strengthen a tooth,
and improve the cosmetic appearance of a smile.

 

Dentures

Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available:  complete and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Partial dentures may be
necessary to keep the remaining teeth from changing position and creating dental issues. Dentures are necessary to keep facial muscles and lips from
sagging and also allow you to continue to speak and eat normally.

 

Fillings

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth due to decay or breaking. Once a tooth has a filling the function and strength of that tooth is restored. At Smiles By
Design we use only tooth colored filling.  No mercury fillings are ever used in this office, keeping it safer for you. 

 

Hygiene

Regular dental checkups are essential to overall health.  At our check-ups, Dr. Minocha will personally talk with you.  She will do a complete cleaning, polish,
and floss of your teeth.  Dr. Minocha will also do a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth looking for any problems.  There are many health
concerns that can stem from not having your professional cleaning and having bacteria build up in your mouth such as, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Stroke, Premature delivery for pregnant women and even SIDS.  It is important to be seen by a Dentist, that may be your first line of defense. It is her goal to help you
maintain your good oral health and identify any issues in the early stages.

Depending on a number of factors, x-rays may be recommended.  At Smiles By Design, we use low radiation x-rays for your safety.
 

Implants

If you need to replace one tooth or just a few teeth, a dental implant might be the best option. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that you can attach your
new tooth to. Dental implants are safe for the neighboring teeth and can be completed in just a few visits. Your new smile will be very natural looking.

 

Inlays

Dental inlays are used to repair decaying teeth that do not require extensive bridgework, or to replace older metal fillings. Most dental inlays are composed of
porcelain. Patients who desire a natural smile are very pleased with the natural looking smile that is provided with the porcelain inlay.

 

Invisible Braces – ClearConnect

ClearCorrect are invisible braces.  You get a great smile with metal braces, brackets, and wires.  With ClearCorrect, Dr. Minocha can work with you for straighter 
teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth.

 

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease (gum disease) can be a serious matter if left untreated. It can lead to tooth and bone loss, as well as heart disease and a number of other
medical issues. Periodontal disease is caused by a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bones supporting the teeth. The good news is that gum
disease is very treatable in the beginning stages. Dr. Lali Minocha works with all her patients,  educating each person how to keep healthy teeth and gums for life.

 

Root Canal

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp
(soft area within root canal) are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become
infected and abscesses may form.

A temporary filling is then put on top of the canal.  A crown or permanent filling will be put in place after there has been no sign of infection. 

 

TMJ Therapy

Dr. Minocha will sit and talk with about your symptoms then perform an exam to determine the cause of your symptoms.  Once the causes have been
determined, she will provide a customized TMJ treatment for you.  This could include pain relief through the application of mouth guards and/or bite therapy.

 

Toothprints

Toothprints is an easy way to collect unique information about your child without scaring your child.  In the unthinkable event that you would need
identification, toothprints creates a dental id for your child and captures their saliva for scent-dog tracking.  As a mother, Dr. Minocha understands the
importance of protecting your children.

 

Veneers

Veneers are a great way to cover discolored teeth, cracks, chips, and misaligned teeth.  Veneers are very thin and are designed to bond to your existing
teeth.  Even though veneers are thin, they are very durable once bonded to your teeth.  Veneers create a lasting, natural smile.

 

Whitening

Zoom whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.  Zoom whitening, in office system in as little as one appointment, you
can change the color of your teeth by 6 to 8 shades.

 

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties.  If a person has room for the wisdom teeth and
they are properly aligned, there are normally not any issues.  But if the wisdom teeth are misaligned, removal is often recommended. 

Misaligned wisdom teeth have a potential to create or cause of number of issues.  Misalignment of wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth,
the jawbone, or nerves. In addition, misaligned wisdom teeth can make adjacent teeth more apt for decay.  Misaligned wisdom teeth can also cause pain,
swelling, jaw stiffness, and general illness.
