Each method has it's pros and cons so it is best to consult the dentist for optimal results.
Crowns are extremely useful to help protect worn and fragile teeth or to replace extensive loss of tooth structure. They are very durable and can be made from metallic/gold to natural tooth-coloured porcelain.
Bridges are very useful for filling small gaps within the mouth (where a tooth has been lost/removed). Many different types of bridges are available and can be made from metallic/gold to natural tooth-coloured porcelain.
Veneers are thin porcelain facings bonded onto teeth to change their shape and colour. They can give extremely aesthetic results especially when placed on consecutive teeth.
Dentures are removable plastic teeth that can replace a few or all teeth within the jaw. They are designed to conform to your mouth for a comfortable, functional and aesthetic fit.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, involves removal of the nerve(s) from the tooth. It is usually done to save sore/infected teeth from being removed but can be lengthy process involving several appointments. We use modern equipment to ensure treatment is done quickly and comfortably.
Tooth extractions range from simple removal of teeth to complicated removal of teeth, gum, and bone. We can extract teeth in most cases , including wisdom teeth, but a consult with the dentist is essential.
Dental implants are the most realistic replacement of teeth. It includes the implant screw (like the root of the tooth) and the crown. We offer both the surgical placement of implant screws as well as fabricating the crown.
