Ceramic Crowns and Bridges:
Dr. Jyothi performs a variety of dental restoration procedures including crowns, bridges, onlays, and inlays. This is to help restore badly decayed, injured, or fractured teeth. These porcelain restorations cover the entire tooth helping to improve both the appearance and strength of your tooth. A bridge is custom-made to replace a missing tooth or teeth by anchoring to neighboring teeth on either side. Which are commonly prepared as we would for a crown.
Dental bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic and restorative procedures. Resin is applied and molded to correct tooth shape, then hardened using high-intensity light. Resin is color matched to blend with the rest of your teeth
Dentures can be partial or full. Partial dentures are designed to replace teeth and full dentures replace an entire set of teeth. Dentures restore the function of your teeth and the appearance of your smile. Dentures also can correct facial features affected by missing teeth.
There are numerous situations in which extractions can help alleviate pain or prepare you for another cosmetic or restorative procedure. Some common reasons for extraction include advanced periodontal disease that has loosened the tooth roots, extra teeth or baby teeth that impede adult teeth, removing a fractured or malformed tooth and severe tooth decay which cannot be treated with root canal therapy.

Endodontic (Root Canal) Therapy:
When healthy teeth become infected, the only way to save such an infected tooth is through root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is the process of removing and cleaning all the infected tissue in the pulp chamber and root canal. Once all the bacteria are eliminated, the tooth is sealed with gutta percha which prevents bacteria from getting into the root canal again. Now that the tooth is without pulp to nourish it, it is recommended that a crown is fitted so the tooth structure and appearance remains intact.
Our preferred sedation method comes in the form of a small pill, an oral conscious sedative. Because you will be experiencing the effects of sedative dentistry, we require that you be driven to and from our office. Although you will remain conscious during the dental procedure, you will experience a deep sense of relaxation that allows you to talk.
