Crowns can be of various sizes and made from materials such as porcelain, acrylic, metal and gold. Crowns are laboratory made and used to cover a tooth in order to give it strength. Porcelain crowns are aesthetically pleasing as they are custom made to match the shade of a person’s own natural tooth.
A bridge is used to replace a missing tooth. It involves using teeth either side of the space to support a tooth (pontic) and teeth used in this fashion are called abutment teeth. Sometimes it is possible to use just one tooth behind the missing tooth as an anchor
We want to restore our patient’s confident smiles and allow them to live their lives in comfort.
Dental implants are a revolution in dental technology, offering the ability to replace missing teeth.
A dental implant is a type of artificial tooth root that your dentist places in your jawbone, using it as a form of ‘stake’ onto which a replacement tooth or bridge is then fixed. Due to the bio-compatible properties of titanium, the dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a secure anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace either single or multiple missing teeth. They are also used to retain removable dentures.
Veneering a tooth is merely placing a new front surface on the tooth. It is minimally invasive and can be made from porcelain or a composite material.
Typically they are placed to mask minor discolouration, close spaces and to harmonise the surfaces of teeth.
Porcelain veneers are made by dental technicians and fitted by your Dentist. Composites veneers are made directly onto the tooth surface by your Dentist.
