We can be hard on our teeth – and diseased, chipped or even missing teeth are not only bothersome, but when left untreated, can lead to further complications. Wear and tear is a constant reality and we offer restorative dentistry services that can bring your mouth back to its healthiest state possible.
You’d be surprised at what a few enhancements can do for your confidence, function, and well being!
Crown & Bridge
Losing or chipping a tooth can be a traumatic experience—especially if the empty space it leaves is visible when you smile. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology and advancements in restorative dentistry, today’s false teeth can look and feel just like the real thing.
A fixed bridge is a way of replacing a missing tooth that uses the teeth on either side of the lost one as anchors to hold the replacement tooth in place. To form the bridge, the two teeth must be fitted for crowns, which are crafted in a lab along with the new tooth.
Bridges are permanent, stable, comfortable, and, in most cases, completely natural-looking. They are not the best option, however, if more than three teeth in a row are missing, the anchor teeth are not solid, or the anchor teeth are in virgin condition. In such cases, dentures or implants may be a better option.
Thanks to modern dental materials, silver fillings are a thing of the past. Metal fillings may be durable, but they look far from natural.
Tooth-coloured fillings are not only extremely strong and wear-resistant but also almost impossible to tell from real enamel.
Replacing old silver fillings with these new, natural looking materials can take years off your smile by erasing evidence of past dental work.
