Cosmetic fillings: A non-invasive way to treat minor defects like chipped tooth, broken tooth, minor gaps in between teeth.. After matching the shade of your existing natural teeth these cosmetic fillings begin their magic. This is an in house procedure and is carried out in the same appointment. The material used for cosmetic fillings is called Composite which is a kind of resin and it comes in different shades which is chosen based on requirement.
Veneers or tooth coloured half caps: Minimally invasive method of correcting minor defects like gaps between teeth, discoloured teeth, abnormally sized teeth, for smile designing etc. This is an in house procedure whereafter minimal changes are made on the existing natural tooth, measurements are taken and sent to the laboratory for fabrication of the veneers. Then these veneers are fixed onto the existing natural teeth. These veneers have a good shade matching capacity and they are made completely of ceramic.
