A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. The procedure involves placing an artificial tooth, made of ceramic or other durable materials, to fill the space where your natural tooth was. Dental bridges help eliminate any gaps in your smile, restore a functional bite, preserve your speech, and stop other teeth from shifting into the open space. They can last a lifetime if you maintain optimal oral hygiene and visit your dentist for routine check-ups.
If you have a damaged, decayed, or cracked tooth, a dental crown can help restore your tooth"s proper size, shape, and strength. In simple terms, crowns are usually hollow caps that are created in the shape of your tooth and cemented in place. They come in customized shapes and colours based on your personal preference and on our dentist"s recommendation. Crowns can be fused to metal implants for long-lasting durability and a natural appearance that blends well with your natural teeth.
If you want to correct stained, chipped, or crooked teeth, porcelain veneers may be the solution for you. For this procedure, ceramic porcelain is placed on the surface of your teeth. To achieve the look of natural teeth, the porcelain is custom-fitted to your teeth and has a translucent finish to resemble natural tooth enamel. Natural tooth enamel does not reflect light immediately. It goes through the enamel and reflects off the opaque tooth dentin that is underneath. The translucency of the veneers helps achieve the same effect.
If you want a beautiful and natural-looking solution for your teeth, porcelain veneers are a long-lasting procedure that is definitely worth considering.
