There are many dental procedures that can be done by a dentist. Here are some of the most common procedures dentists do. 

  

 

 

  1. Bonding 

 If you have decayed teeth or teeth that are discolored, have gaps in between, fractured or chipped then a procedure called bonding is the answer to your problem. This procedure involves a composite resin which is a plastic type in paste form that is tinted in order to match it with your teeth. The resin is layered several times in a tooth where it is being applied on and is hardened through the use of a laser or light of ultraviolet rays. The final touches of this procedure include polishing and shaping in order for the formed resin to look as natural as possible while keeping in mind that it is matched with the teeth of the person getting the procedure. 

 

 2. Braces 

 Braces are very popular when it comes to people with alignment and bite problems. Bite problems can include underbite or overbite and other issue related to bite problems. With the help of this procedure, the teeth are straightened though a pressure that is steadily applied to the teeth.  

 

3. Bridges and Implants 

 If you have a missing tooth or maybe teeth then this is the one for you. Bridges and implants provide solution through putting a fake tooth while anchoring it to the teeth next to it. On the other hand, implants are made of artificial roots that helps support the teeth used for replacement.  

 

4. Crowns and Caps 

 This type of procedure is more focused on covering a tooth that has been damaged through decay, sometimes because a tooth is broken, not in shape or is discolored. This procedure can mean more than one visit to the dentist since the dentist needs to prepare the crown and caps beforehand.  

Crowns have variety of material that can be composed of metal, acrylic, porcelain, or both porcelain and metal. Porcelain crowns provide a more natural look that’s why it is designed to be placed in front while a more durable crown made of both porcelain and metal is fit for the back teeth. 

 

5. Extraction 

 All of us have probably went to a dentist for extraction. Some because they have experienced severe pain and got an advice to see their dentist while some because of an overcrowding situation. Whatever the case is, the given is to remove a tooth that has been damaged severely. 

 

6. Gum Surgery 

 Gum infection can affect the gum and the jaw bone and if left without a dentist’s help will cost a person’s gum and teeth. In this procedure, the dentist looks for possible lumps and irregular changes in the tissue in the head, neck, face and the mouth. Sores and discoloration may also help in the diagnosis.
