Repairing decayed, broken or missing teeth is important for your overall health and can also aid in improving your appearance. Cosmetic dentistry offers several options that can effectively repair your smile while giving you back the natural bite between your upper and lower teeth.
- Bridges – A natural-looking alternative to dentures, a bridge can replace a section of one or several missing teeth. They are custom made to blend naturally with your remaining teeth and can help you enjoy all of your favourite foods once again.
- Crowns – Typically used to cover a heavily filled or broken tooth, crowns can also provide strength to a tooth after a root canal treatment, attach bridges and cover dental implants. They are also excellent for covering stained or chipped TEETH.
Types of CROWN-PORCEALIN OR METAL CRWON.
Veneers – Composite or porcelain veneers are shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to close gaps, mask chips and discolorations as well as hide misaligned teeth. They are an ideal solution to enhancing your smile while maintaining a healthy tooth structure.
Bonding – A less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers and crowns, bonding is where the tooth is prepared and composite resin is added, moulded and shaped to cover the tooth. It is not as permanent as veneers, but rarely requires shaving or reduction of the natural teeth.
