If you want to restore your smile back, or fix or replace a chipped tooth, then a crown or a bridge might be the best option for you. Crowns and bridges are prosthetic devices that can not only enhance the appearance of your teeth, but it can also strengthen your teeth while restoring the your beautiful smile.
Crown and bridges are fixed devices. So, once they are implanted into your mouth, they are there to stay. Dentures and similar devices are removable, but bridges and crowns are not. They are permanently cemented into your mouth and can only be removed by a dentist.
Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges cannot be removed for cleaning purposes. In fact, patients can treat them like normal teeth. Even though crowns and bridges are considered dental implants, proper dental hygiene is still important for the care and maintenance of your teeth and dental implants.
Cosmetic bonding is utilizing tooth-coloured filling material to reshape broken, chipped, and discoloured teeth. Gone are the days when tooth trauma and cavities could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings. Today, modern, tooth-colored fillings made of durable resin can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger, more natural-looking effect. Composite fillings are virtually undetectable and require only a single appointment to apply.
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever. There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist and denturist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. Your dentist and denturist will determine which of the three types of dentures described below is best for you.
If one or more of your teeth are missing, there are a number of ways to replace them. An alternative to bridges, partials or complete dentures may be dental implants. Implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. They are comfortable, long-lasting, and look like natural teeth. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth.
A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. A single implant can be more esthetic and easier to keep clean than a bridge. They also act as a support for full and partial dentures, since the implants integrate with the bone to act as an anchor for the replacement teeth. The cost of these implants has become very affordable. Book a consultation with us today and see how dental implants can benefit you.
