Treatments - Restorative.

Bridges, Partial Dentures and Implants
There are three main ways to replace the missing teeth. The first is with a removable false tooth or teeth - a partial denture. The second is with a fixed bridge. The third is to use dental implants. A bridge is usually used when there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.

Caries/Decay - Caries (decay) restored with white filling
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. Many people don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look.

Dentures
A denture is an appliance which is worn to replace lost or missing teeth, to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence.
A complete or full denture is one which replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.
A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth, and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.

Broken or Chipped Teeth - Chipped Teeth restored with Composite Bonding
Accidents happen, especially during sports, which could leave you with broken or chipped teeth. We can restore them using Composite Bonding.


Porcelain Crowns
Crowns are dental restorations otherwise known as "caps" which are coverings that fit over teeth.

Crowns may be necessary because of broken down old fillings or because of fractured, chipped or sensitive teeth. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, malpositioned or discoloured.
