How good could you look?
How bright could your smile be?
Multiple veneers can close spaces resulting in a prematurely aged appearance, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, fill the black triangles between teeth caused by gum recession, provide a uniform colour, shape, and symmetry, and make the teeth appear straight.
We also recommend using thin porcelain veneers to strengthen worn teeth. Thin veneers is an effective option for aging patients with worn teeth.
Veneers are between 0.3mm and 0.5mm thick, but once bonded to your teeth, are extremely strong. Their appearance is amazingly realistic with a great look, strength and durability that make your smile lasting and attractive.
Crowns and Bridges
When teeth are heavily decayed they may be too weak to survive with just a filling. By placing a crown, a tooth may be given a new lease of life.
As we age, many of us find ourselves with teeth that are no longer structurally sound. Root canals, lost fillings, decay, chipping and cracking of the enamel are all things that can lead to large-scale problems in a tooth’s surface. When the entire surface of the tooth is a problem, but the root system is intact, a crown might be the ideal solution for you.
Crown treatments almost always require two visits. Initially, the tooth will need to be drilled and shaped to form a preparation on to which the crown can sit. After this is completed, an impression of the preparation is taken and a temporary crown is fitted onto the tooth. The impression is then sent to a laboratory where the crown is hand-made and hand-shaded to suit your mouth according to specifications set by the dentist.At the next appointment, the temporary crown is removed and the permanent crown is cemented into place. Slight adjustment of the crown may be required at this point.
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. They are recommended in cases where removable dentures or dental implants may not be suitable. Dental bridges consist of an artificial tooth attached to a crown on the natural tooth on each side of the gap.
Bridge treatments usually require two visits. The initial appointment will consist of crown preparations on the teeth on either side of the gap, an impression is taken and either a temporary bridge or two temporary crowns will be fitted. The impression will be sent to the laboratory where the bridge will be made. At the next appointment, the temporary restorations are removed and the permanent bridge is cemented into place. Slight adjustment may be required at this point.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jaw for the purpose of holding a replacement tooth or bridge.
This is the latest procedure to replace a missing tooth or teeth without disturbing the teeth next to the space.
People who have teeth knocked out in accidents can quite often benefit from implants (but not children who are still growing).
It is also a widely accepted method to stabilize dentures that do not sit very well and are difficult to adjust to. Once the implant has fused with the bone it can last indefinitely.
