At Smilon, we undertake placement of dental implants after analysing the general health of the patient, the local condition of mucous membrane, and the bone size and shape. With us, you can be assured of safe and secure implants. The restorations done under this line of treatment resemble the tooth and bond seamlessly with the living bones within a short span of time.

Esthetic Dentistry (Smile Designing)
Contemporary smile design is a new concept, and the techniques and philosophies are constantly evolving.Smilon gives you one of the best smile makeovers. This is the process of improving the appearance of your smile through cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental veneers, composite bonding, cosmetic restoration, tooth implants, teeth whitening, dentures and bridges etc.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Types of Dental venners
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers. They also better mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.
What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?
Teeth that are discolored
Teeth that are worn down
Teeth that are chipped or broken
Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)
2) Teeth Whitening / Bleaching
Do your teeth look yellow? If the answer to this is a yes, then schedule an appointment with Smilon today! Bleaching can be office-based or at-home. While both use peroxide-based bleaching agents, the at-home systems contain about 3% to 20% peroxide while the in-office ones carry 15% to 43%. Whitening of the teeth depends on how long you keep the stronger solution on. However, it is important to ensure that the whitening solution with more peroxide should not be kept on for a longer duration as it will dehydrate the tooth and increase sensitivity. In-office tooth whitening is a faster approach to whitening. To intensify the process, heat, light, or a combination of the two may be used.
Cosmetic Restorations are tooth coloured substances used by a dental professional to mask teeth defects like discoloration, spacing between teeth and build up broken tooth to desirable shape to present you with a desirable shape

Worried about the pain during a root canal? Put your worries to rest with Smilon. Our endodontic procedures encompass treatment of the tooth, dental pulp and surrounding tissues. The injured pulp is removed through root canal treatment wherein the canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed.
At Smilon, we help address issues such as badly decayed, fractured, or dead tooth by removing the pulp from the tooth. This process is known as RCT. We offer two kinds of services within this basket.
* SINGLE SITTING RCT In some cases, a single visit is enough to address the potential problem. Some examples where this is applicable include maxillary anterior teeth involved in trauma which has further caused horizontal fracture of the crown at the gum line.
* MULTIPLE SITTING RCT This is needed when there is difficulty in effectively sealing off the root canal system from the oral cavity in a single visit.
* LASER RCT Lasers can be used to extricate the infected pulp tissue from root canals, which transform root canals into a painless procedure.
Prosthodontics (Rehabiltative Dentistry)
This branch of dentistry helps restore the optimum appearance and function of your smile. To achieve this, Smilon helps you with the design, manufacture, and fitting of artificial replacements for your teeth.
Prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth are known as dentures and can help restore a person’s smile and confidence!Dentures are of two kinds.
Removable prosthesis (Partial,Complete):
* Partial: A removable partial denture is for a partially edentulous patient who wants teeth replaced for functional or aesthetic reasons. It is also forsomeone who cannot have a bridge due to lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge or those with financial limitations.
* Complete: A complete denture is a removable appliance used when all teeth are lost and need to be prosthetically replaced. A soft liner (layer of soft, pliable material)is fitted between the surface of a denture and oral tissues. It helps absorb shock between the hard base of the denture and the gums.
* Fixed Prosthesis(Crowns and bridges): This is a device used to replace missing teeth. It attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth. Crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist.
* Bridge: It consists of a false tooth that is cemented to natural teeth surrounding the space where the tooth once stood. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Bridges help prevent this from happening. Depending upon the case bridge is selected.
» Conventional bridges that are supported by full coverage crowns, three-quarter crowns on the abutment teeth.
» Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) is used to restore the aesthetics of crown and bridges, the aim is to maintain natural tooth color by attaching it on the labial surface of metal crown / bridges, however PFM restorations may show a grey color at the cervical margins of the tooth showing the metal substructure.
» Zirconia bridges are best type of bridgework you would like to have. Those who have allergy to metals used in other types of bridges need not worry – there is no metal used in a zirconia bridge. They are exceptionally strong and stable. They have a translucent appearance which provides a more natural match to your existing teeth. Since there is no base metal, black lines at the edge of the gum line is eliminated.
» BioHPP: In this high-performance polymer is used which seems to offer slightly less bulky structures when compared to zirconia. Elasticity of this material resembles the elasticity of human bone. This biocompatibility makes this material very attractive for dental applications.
* Implant supported dentures and implant supported fixed partial prosthesis: This is a type of overdenture supported by and attached to implants. While a regular denture rests on the gums and is not supported by implants, an implant-supported denture is used for those who do not have any teeth but enough bone in the jaw to support implants. Such dentures have special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.
No one can remember or think of a time or life without their teeth – and at Smilon, we will not let you imagine such a time with our solutions!
