If left untreated, missing teeth can result in an improper bite and this can affect both speaking and chewing capabilities. Teeth and gums can weaken and cause the jaw bone to suffer shrinkage, which will then negatively impact facial volume and expression. We aim to give patients a natural-looking set of functioning teeth for improved aesthetics and health.
Crowns can be attached to a bridge on one or more sides of a missing tooth or they may be permanently fixed by a dental implant. Crowns are made from materials such as porcelain, glass or zirconium and will mimic natural tooth colour and shape. We also offer E-max Crowns. Crowns are used in cases where teeth are weakened and require additional strength, or they can be used for missing teeth on either the upper or lower dental arch.
Bridges consist of a precious metal base or other material which is bonded with porcelain to anchor replacement teeth. If there are few teeth in need of replacement or tooth gaps are present on one side of the mouth, bridges can be an appropriate teeth replacement option.
Tooth gaps weaken dental structure promoting further tooth and bone loss. Gum tissue can become irritated and cause inflammation and problems such as gingivitis. Damaged teeth have been proven to increase the risk of tooth decay which often leads to gum disease. Replacement teeth, such as crowns and bridges, restore teeth and improve the bite.
Our Smile Perfection dentist will evaluate each patient’s need for oral health improvement and will then discuss the most appropriate treatment options. Replacement teeth are elegantly designed to appear and feel natural.
