Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are used to strengthen a damaged tooth and/or improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth. Crowns can be made from porcelain or ceramic, and can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, as well as gold, acryilic and metal alloys.
Your dentist might recommend a crown to replace a large filling if there isn't enough tooth remaining, protect a weak tooth, restore a fractured tooth, cover a dental implant, improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth, cover a tooth that has recieved root canal treatment or to attach a bridge.
A bridge is recommended if you're missing one or more teeth. The gaps left by your missing teeth will eventually cause the remaining teeth to shift in to the empty spaces. the imblance caused by missing teeth can lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorders.
Bridges Span the space where the missing teeth are. They are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. A replacement tooth is attached to the crowns that cover the teeth surrounding the gap, creating the bridge.
Dental Veneers are thin, custom made shells that are made of tooth coloured materials that are bonded to your teeth, designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their aesthetic appearance by changing the colour, shape, size or length.
Dental Veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite. You will need to discuss with your dentist which material is best for you.
Dental Veneers fix teeth that are discoloured due to stains or the presence of large resin fillings that have become discoloured on the tooth, worn down teeth, chipped or broken teeth, teeth that are misaligned, irregularly shaped or uneven and teeth with gaps between them.
Dental Implants are replacement tooth roots. they provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Dental implants fuse with the bone, making them not only look like natural teeth, but feel like natural teeth. They can help improve speech, oral health and eating, as they are more comfortable than dentures.
Mini Implants are used for teeth in narrow areas such as incisors or pre-molars, as well as patients who may require stabilisation of prosthetics. Mini implants are roughly half the width of normal implants and are not fully submerged in the jaw during a mini implant procedure.
