    1. Veneers: Dental veneers are made for individual patients depending upon the structure and size of the teeth. A dental adhesive is used in order to attach veneers to the front of the teeth. This process stabilizes the cracked tooth and fills the gap between teeth. The process enhances the look of the teeth and helps against further damage. This is a very popular procedure among common people as well as celebrities.


    1. Dental Implant: is a procedure in which a rooted device is implanted into the actual jaw. A small titanium rod is placed into the jaw to support the crown where the tooth is missing. Once the bone and the supporting tissue fuse to the implant, it is permanently secured. Patients need to diligently take care of their teeth during the procedure and clean the food junk from the area.  With the advancement in technology, dental implants are now done even without surgery.


    1. Dental Bridge: Dental Bridge Procedure is created in order to fill the gap between the teeth where a tooth is lost. Bridges are mostly fabricated outside the mouth. Bridges are mostly made in gold or porcelain fused metal also depending on how patients like.
