Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple and non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel. It is an ideal way to increase the beauty of your smile.
Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old restorations and crowns, for example. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly whitened teeth
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root and an excellent permanent option for tooth replacement. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your jaw bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures.
It's an ideal option for people in good general and oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.
Dental implants are some of the most innovative solutions in dentistry today and have high success rates.

Did you know that 3/4 of Indians are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth? Many believe that an unattractive smile can hurt the personal relationships and careers. At JK Dental Clinic we believe it is important to give people confidence by giving them a beautiful smile.
Your dental health is important to us. That’s why we take time to do a thorough exam using state-of-the-art x-rays to get a better understanding of your particular dental condition. Using the latest technology, we will monitor the health of your teeth, gums and mouth and be able to make a precise diagnosis and recommendations for any necessary treatments.
Scaling & Polishing is an easy and pain-free process, to remove etiologic agents such as dental plaque and tartar, or calculus, which cause gingival inflammation and disease. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment or a preventative measure. They are commonly performed on cases of gingivitis and moderate to severe periodontal disease.
When scaling is performed, calculus and plaque that attaches to the tooth surfaces is removed. The process especially targets the area below the gum line, along the root. Scaling is performed with a special dental tool called an ultrasonic scaling tool. The scaling tool usually includes an irrigation process that can be used to deliver an antimicrobial agent below the gums to help reduce oral bacteria. Then, to make sure teeth are perfectly clean, the hygienist will gently scrape to remove any additional tartar or plaque. Finally, your teeth will be polished with a special kind of toothpaste and flossed.
Braces work by placing a metal bracket onto the surface of each tooth and connecting them via wires, and although the procedure has been successfully used for decades to treat misaligned bites or crooked teeth, it’s one of those dental appliances that’s painfully obvious. So while many people do want straight teeth, they’re deterred by visions of a mouth full of metal.
We’re proud to be able to offer patients an alternative — clear braces for adults and teens. They are just as effective as metal braces for correcting gaps, misalignments or crooked teeth, but they’re nearly invisible. This makes them perfect for teens, professionals and others who don’t want dental work to impact their appearance.
Clear braces operate similarly to traditional braces with a bracket on each tooth and a wire threaded between them. The biggest difference is that these brackets and wires are made out of tooth-colored resin that matches the surrounding teeth, making them practically invisible. This doesn’t mean that the brackets are stain-proof, however, so it’s important to keep them perfectly clean during treatment.
Did you know that not all wisdom teeth need to be removed? In fact, some people keep their wisdom teeth their entire lives without issue — they even use them to help chew food. However, if cavities or infections form, or if the gums surrounding the wisdom teeth become inflamed, it may be a good idea to have them removed. We start every consultation on wisdom teeth with digital X-rays to check on the health before even considering wisdom teeth extraction.
As wisdom teeth develop, the roots become longer and the jaw bone denser. When it is necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth in your thirties, forties or beyond, the post-operative course can be prolonged and there is a higher complication rate. Treating these complications is often more difficult and less predictable than with a younger patient. Healing may be slower and the chance of infection can be increased. If your impacted wisdom teeth are not removed in your teenage years or early in your twenties and they are completely impacted in bone, it may be advisable to wait until a localized problem (such as cyst formation or localized gum disease and bone loss) develops. In general, you will heal faster, more predictably and have fewer complications if treated in your teens or early twenties.
A denture is a prosthetic removable dental appliance constructed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth.
There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain; it not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth but also prevents other teeth from shifting.
Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
Childhood dental habits establish the foundation for oral health during adulthood. By training children about proper hygienic habits at an early age, parents and caregivers can set them up for a lifetime of good oral health.
Proper dental care during the formative years is imperative to avoid a lifetime of complications or pain. Pediatric dentists focus on early detection, prevention, and oral health treatment. Patient education is key to good oral health for a lifetime. Our dentist teaches your child the importance of daily oral care and teaches them how to maintain a good daily regimen. Parents are informed about a wide range of topics, from the diet, the best type of toothpaste, and thumb sucking cessation if needed.
A dental problem can begin very early in life. Early childhood caries (cavities) is one of the biggest concerns. This condition is exacerbated by breastfeeding or using a bottle for too long, as well as using a sippy cup too long. It is common for cavities to form between the teeth where they are not visible without dental x-rays. Less visible cavities need to be found early. By the time a child starts having pain from one, the teeth need more extensive treatment or even removal.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is a device to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. The traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the space created by one or more missing teeth.
Reasons for fabricating a fixed bridge are to:
Root canals are a relatively simple procedure involving one to three office visits. Best of all, having a root canal when necessary can save your tooth and your smile!
When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess may form. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain and swelling can result. This can not only injure your jawbones, but it is detrimental to your overall health. Without the proper treatment, your tooth may have to be removed.
Teeth that require root canal therapy are not always painful. However, signs you may need a root canal include severe toothache, pain upon chewing or application of pressure, prolonged sensitivity or pain in response to hot and cold temperatures, a dark discoloration of the tooth, and swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor.
Dental filling is used to repair a tooth affected by cracks, fractures, decay or other issues that can cause the tooth to lose strength. During the procedure, the decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and replaced with a composite filling. Because these types of fillings, as opposed to older, metal fillings, are specially blended for your teeth, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth.
Resin Onlays are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.
Since the resin used in tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride this can help prevent decay. The resin wears like natural teeth and does not require placement at the gum line, which is healthier for your gums!
We all desire and do many things to get a bright, white smile. So, how about adding a small tinkle that would flash every time you smile? Teeth jewellery is gaining popularity and includes placing diamonds or gems on the teeth. The idea of flashing a red ruby or a blue sapphire only adds to the joy that is revealed through the smile.
The procedure of fixing teeth jewelry is very simple and usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Dentists do offer lots of fun designs to choose from crystals, diamonds and 24 carat gold. There is no drilling involved, so the jewel does not damage tooth and has no side effects. It can be easily removed without any damage to the tooth structure. Further, if one wants tooth jewelry can be fixed again at a later stage. The longevity of adhesion of these studs varies from 6 months to years.
Dental jewellery is an easy way to add that special flare to any smile! It can be temporarily placed for special events or strongly bonded for permanent smile enhancement.
A preventive program is a collaborative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental hygienist to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental decay and periodontal disease.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office through regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile.
Sometimes a patient’s teeth possess numerous small imperfections like uneven crowns, cracks, and discoloration. It would be expensive and time-consuming to fix each individual problem. When this is the case, a dentist might recommend dental veneers or laminates.
A dental veneer is a thin shell that is applied to the exterior surface of the teeth. Veneers were typically made of porcelain but can include a range of synthetic materials. The veneers are molded to fit onto the teeth but with a different appearance. Patients can choose how white they look if their teeth are straighter and how uniform the crowns are. The result is a healthy, beautiful smile that has extra protection from damage and decay thanks to the shell.
Mouth ulcers are small sores that form on your gums, lips, inner cheeks or palate (roof of mouth). They can be triggered by several different factors, including minor injuries, hormonal changes and emotional stress. Mouth ulcers aren’t contagious — and they go away on their own — but there are treatments to help ease pain and discomfort.
While you can’t prevent mouth ulcers altogether, there are things you can do to reduce your risk. For example:
Advanced gum disease also known as periodontitis, this disease affects almost half of Americans over the age of 30, according to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Tooth loss is often an unfortunate outcome when left untreated. But today, with so many successful periodontitis treatment options available for advanced gum disease, losing teeth doesn’t have to occur. This article will cover the signs, risk factors, and various therapy methods for gum disease treatment. We hope to put your mind at ease by empowering you to be confident in your decisions about moving forward with treating your gum disease!
Here's why: the first stage, called gingivitis, occurs when bacterial plaque is not thoroughly removed from your teeth. When you don't treat gingivitis, periodontitis may come into play. Toxins from this buildup of bacterial plaque affect your gum tissue and the bone and ligaments that support your teeth. As the infection causes periodontitis to spread to the bone and supporting tissues, your teeth may become loose and need removal. But even advanced cases of periodontal disease don't have to progress to this point.
The sooner you seek treatment, the better your chances are of saving your teeth and health.
Digital smile design is a digital mode that help us to create and project the new smile design by attaining a simulation and pre visualization of the ultimate result of the proposed treatment. A design created digitally involves participation of the patients on the designing process of their self-smile design, leading to customization of smile design as per individual needs and desires that complements with the morpho psychological characteristics of the patient, relating patient to an emotional level, increasing their conﬁdence in the process and better acceptance of the anticipated treatment
A patient constantly doubting the end result of the treatment, which is an irreversible procedure. So we use DSD tool to design and modify the smile of patients digitally and help them to visualize it beforehand by creating and presenting a digital mockup of their new smile design before the treatment physically starts. It helps in visual communication and involvement of the patients in their own smile design process, thus ensuring predictable treatment outcome and increasing case acceptance.
