If tooth decay is neglected, the bacteria can enter the pulp causing severe infection.
Cutting into the gum, and removing nerves/tissue/etc. A root-end resection. Occasionally a root canal alone will not be enough to relieve pain and the end of the tooth, called the apex, will be removed by entering through the gingiva and surgically extracting the diseased material.
A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. Teeth that might have broken or worn out from trauma or other bad practices or oral hygeine.

A Root Canal is a dental procedure to fix a tooth by removing the pulp chamber of the tooth and filling it with a suitable filling material.

Correction of the stained teeth, missing teeth, spaces between the teeth, protruding teeth, misaligned teeth all come under the category of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Dental sealants as the name suggests, seal the plaque from the chewing surfaces of the tooth. Very often the teeth at the extremities of the jaw are not reachable(by the toothbrush), and are susceptible to decay more as compared to the teeth that are accessible. Sealants bond to the cavities and grooves on the chewing surface of the back teeth, thus preventing the teeth from further decay.
Veneers are a thin shell made out of porcelain or composite material. They are custom made and cemented to the front side of the tooth. Veeners can completely change the appearance of the teeth in terms of shape, length, color and size and can transform the smile altogether.They can be used to correct spaces between the teeth, mask the discoloration of the stained teeth, to give an appearance of straight teeth or to replace lost teeth.
One of the latest modalities in cosmetic dentistry is bleaching the teeth white. Also called "teeth bleaching" , whitening bleach can brighten and whiten your teeth from discoloration and / or staining. Teetch whitening works best for individuals with stained or yellow teeth. Almost all the teeth whitening agents use peroxide based bleaching techniques and show the results in very less time.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. They come in variations of full and partial dentures depending upon whether any natural teeth are available or not.
Crowns, also referred to as caps, are custom made to fit over your whole tooth after the dentist has prepared it. They are usually made out of acrylic or porcelain that has been fused to metal, to withstand biting pressure. Crowns can be used in cosmetic dentistry to treat teeth that are poorly shaped, badly decayed, broken or chipped, have had large fillings and to cover spaces in between teeth. Crown may also be used in children to save a tooth damaged by decay, protect other teeth that are at high risk for decay. Low cost of dental crowns in India, brings in a lot of people from the western countries to get dental treatments in India.
A bridge is a dental restoration technique used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Two crowns are fixed on the two natural teeth surrounding the missing tooth and a false tooth made up of alloy or porcelain is placed in the gap.
A dental implant is a metal device designed to replace missing teeth. The device is usually made out of titanium and is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant is permanent. Dental implants have definite advantages over bridges and dentures as they are permanent and designed to look like the original teeth. Also the durability of successful dental implants is too good and may last for a lifetime. A majority of people who come for dental surgery in India, come because of the low costs of dental implants in India.
Bonding is the process in which tooth colored materials are adhered (bonded) to the tooth.
