Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers are ultra-thin layers of ceramic (porcelain) which are bonded to the front of the teeth and can give better shape, shade and alignment of teeth. It can solve most of the cosmetic dental issues such as discoloration of teeth, chipping of teeth and misalignment.

We have an expert team here at Al Dehyafa dental center which can provide all sort of cometic treatment including lumineers, veneers and no prep veneers.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are surgical-grade root devices that support permanent tooth prosthetics that are manufactured to last a lifetime. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw. A crown is then place at the top of the implant for a long-lasting and natural looking smile.

Many dentists and patients prefer dental implants because they offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a single missing or damaged tooth or to restore an entire smile.

Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic
treatment straighten the teeth and it involves wearing a fixed or removable
brace. A brace works by slowly moving your teeth to the right position using
gentle pressure. The braces will need to be worn all the time, anything from a
few months to two years. Every 4-5 weeks our specialist orthodontist will check
the braces and make some adjustments.

People
of all ages can benefit from teeth straightening. There a
lot of treatment options available to correct the teeth this includes
retainers, aligners and braces (invisible, metal or ceramic). Correcting a bad
bite and improperly aligned teeth is important not only for aesthetic reasons
but also for proper oral health and function.

Al
Dehyafa Dental Center has a long history of providing outstanding orthodontic
treatments to thousands of patients. Our specialist orthodontist uses the
latest technologies in order to achieve high clinical outcomes.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is often a straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth.

At Al Dehyafa dental centers our dentists carry out Root Canal Treatment when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth.

During root canal treatment the dentist carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals using the latest rotary technology. A root filling is then place and a crown is recommended afterwards to restore the tooth into its original integrity.

Dental fillings

Dental fillings are a common method of repairing and restoring teeth back to their normal shape and function after damage from cavities, cracks, grinding and fractures.  There are several different types of filling materials, however, composite tooth- colored fillings are the most popular filling.

Composite are a very popular choice of
material because their color can be matched to your natural tooth color. Composite
fillings can “bond” to the tooth which other filling materials cannot
do so.

Amalgam (Silver) fillings are also available. Amalgam fillings are strong, long-lasting fillings and sometimes in very rare situations they need to be used instead of composite fillings

Dental Inlay/onlay

Inlays and onlays are restorations used to
repair back teeth which have mild to moderate decay or cracked and fractured
teeth that are not sufficiently damaged to need a crown. A dental inlay is similar to a filling and fits inside the
cusp tips of the tooth. A dental onlay is more extensive and extends over the
cusps of the treated tooth.

Ideal candidates for an inlay or an onlay
typically have too much damage or decay in the tooth structure to be successfully
treated using a filling but have sufficient healthy tooth remaining to avoid
the need for a crown. This allows the dentist to conserve more of the patient’s
original tooth structure.

Dental inlay/onlay are stronger than the traditional fillings. The tooth is first prepared then an impression is followed which is send to the laboratory for the inlay/onlay to be made and then fitted using a dental cement. Dental inlay/onlay can be made from composite, porcelain or gold. 

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. The purpose of it is to cover the tooth and to restore its shape, size, strength and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Dental crowns are usually needed to protect a weak tooth from breaking or to restore an already broken tooth. Dental crowns can also be used to make a cosmetic modification. Crowns are always recommended after a root canal treatment to protect the tooth from any future damage. There are many different kinds of crowns available, our specialist dentists will discuss all the different treatment options available to you.

Dental Bridges

A bridge is a replacement tooth or teeth that fill the space
where one or more teeth are missing. The bridge restores your bite and helps
keep the natural shape of your face.

A dental bridge will
hold your other teeth in place and make everyday activities such as eating and
talking easier. It can also help preserve your teeth as a lost tooth can cause
the remaining teeth to loosen, which may lead to additional tooth loss.

There are several bridge types and designs available, our specialist dentists will spend sufficient time planning your unique case and provide you with the most clinical indicated bridge to meet your needs.

Gum Disease

Gingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal disease. It causes the gums to become red, swollen and bleed easily. There is usually little or no discomfort at this stage. Gingivitis is often caused by inadequate oral hygiene. Gingivitis is reversible with professional treatment and good oral home care. If gingivitis left untreated it can lead into a more aggressive gum disease called periodontitis which involves the bone and the separation of the gum from around the teeth.

Therefore it is highly recommended that routine scaling and polishing is done every 6 months, if pocketing has formed then root planning will be needed as well.

Extractions

An extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the
bone. If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, our expert dentists will
try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment.
Sometimes there is too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, and it will
need to be extracted. Once the tooth is extracted there will be many treatment
options available for the patient to restore the space such as bridges and implants.

If a tooth extraction is needed, the dentist will adminster local anaesthetic to ensure that the area is numb and any discomfort is kept to a minimum. Most teeth should be extracted easily using dental forceps, however, impacted wisdom teeth or badly broken down teeth will need a surgical extraction. Our expert team of surgeons here in Al dehyafa dental centers will make sure that the procedure will be carried out as smooth as possible and pain free.

Pediatric Dentistry

Al Dehyafa dental
centers have an expert team of dentists dealing with children, our dentists
have an excellent expertise in dealing with children and young adolescent. We
offer all range of treatment for our pediatric patients.

We believe that
prevention is the key when it comes to children. Therefore it is recommended
that your child visit the dentist as soon as possible for regular check ups.

Routine scaling and
polishing and fluoride applications are recommended twice a year. Once the
child is around 6-7 years of age and the first molar appears fissure sealant is
recommended. A dental sealant is where a thin plastic material
is applied to the pits and fissures on the biting surface of a tooth to prevent
decay.

Teeth Whitening

Your smile is the first thing that
people will notice about you. The teeth will get discolored from eating and
drinking. Tea, coffee, food containing colors and smoking all play part.
Whitening your teeth will boost your smile and raise your confidence. At Al
Dehaya Dental clinic we provide both home whitening and in office teeth
whitening.

Home whitening involves taking upper and lower impressions to make the whitening trays then the patient will be given the trays with the whitening gel and full instruction on how to whiting the teeth at home. The patient will be reviewed after two weeks to make sure that the desire shade is achieved.

In office whitening provides a much quicker solution to achieve the desired result. After cleaning and polishing the teeth, the whitening gel applied on the teeth and left for several minutes. The desired result is achieved on the day and can be boosted and maintained by continuing with the home whitening at home. Whitening trays with whitening tube and tooth mousse will be given as well.

Gum Bleaching

Gum bleaching is a cosmetic
procedure to easily remove the brown or black patches that often occur
naturally on gum tissue. The treatment is quick, pain-free, and will leave you
with healthy, pink gums.

In particular, people with darker skin tones often find that
they have a naturally higher amount of melanin in their gum tissue, causing
darker gums. This can even occur from sun exposure. In some people, the gums
may have irregular pigmentation with darker patches in places.

At our clinic , we provide gum bleaching using the Biolase
Waterlase, an advanced handheld laser device that lightens the gums to a pink
hue. Minimally invasive, the treatment can be done in the office, and the
results are permanent.

Biolase Waterlase is a laser technology that uses gentle water spray rather than heat to safely remove the cells that produce melanin, which are within the top layers of the skin of the gums. As the tissue heals, the remaining gums are pink in color. Healing is fast, and pain is minimal.

Painless Anesthesia

QuickSleeper is an
electronic pen that efficiently and
comfortably performs all
dental anesthesia without feeling any pain. It can be used for both adults and children patients.

Most
children are scared by the thought of going to the dentist and getting
administered with a local injection. Thanks to QuickSleeper technology this
problem will be overcome as the system looks like a pen and unlike an
injection. If you have a fearful child, it’s time to get them in the clinic and
overcome their fears and their dental problems.

Laser Dentistry

We
are proud to say that we have the latest technologies and innovations in our
clinics.

The Waterlase iPlus Laser is the most advanced Dental laser from Biolase, USA. It was launched in 2011 in USA. With this laser we are able to achieve dental procedures faster than ever, with less pain, less bleeding, and faster healing.

Waterlase is in all tissues laser machine, we also have a much compatible soft tissue laser machine which is routinely used for more frequent treatments such as gingivectomies and gum bleaching.
