Depending on the condition of your teeth you may be suitable for veneers, crowns or bridges. Your dentist will require a full dental check-up to best advise you on the most suitable treatment. The dentist will discuss with you all of your current concerns, and desired outcome, in order to work with you to customise your treatment plan and issue an itemised quote. Whilst veneers are a cosmetic treatment to improve the look of the teeth, crowns and bridges can not only improve the look of the teeth, but also help with the structure of the mouth and improve quality and function of the teeth for biting etc.
Crown: A crown replaces the natural crown on a tooth. If the natural crown (top of the tooth) is compromised, or a root canal has been performed to remove a damaged nerve, you may require a crown to be placed on the top of your natural tooth to both protect it and help it function adequately. The natural tooth may require reshaping by the dentist first to allow room for the new crown to be placed. We utilise digital scanning to allow us to create the best possible fit for you ensuring your comfort.
Bridge: A bridge replaces a missing tooth. A crown is applied to the teeth either side of the gap and the bridge is connected to both crowns to create an artificial tooth where the gap was.
Veneers: Thin tooth coloured porcelain shells used to cover irregular looking teeth and give a more pleasing appearance. Veneers are great for treating chipped, discoloured, slightly misaligned or misshapen teeth visible when you talk or smile.
