We should all smile more it is good for us. However, if you don’t like the colour, shape or perhaps that gap in your teeth or you might think your teeth have gotten shorter due to wear, maybe you don’t smile as much as you should.
Teeth cleaning is a simple way of improving your smile, confidence and keeping your teeth at their whitest while also being extremely important for gum health. Regular cleaning with the dentist is important to prevent the onset of gum disease.
Fillings are used by the dentist to prevent pain and further complications in a tooth that has already decayed. There are a various number of materials that can be used to fill a tooth and your dentist can discuss with you the types and costs of which ones are appropriate in each individual case. The most conservative option is always the best.
Dental Crowns & Onlays
When fillings are very large or a back tooth has had root treatment it is sometimes necessary to protect the tooth with a stronger restoration than a filling for this we can either provide an onlay, if some walls of the tooth are still intact (which is more conservative than a crown) or a tooth crown to cover the entire remaining tooth
Replace Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can be replaced by: Something that is fixed in your mouth …. dental implants or dental bridges. Or something that you can take out of your mouth like partial dentures.
If all your teeth are missing complete dentures can restore lost tooth and gum. There are lots of options as each situation is unique to that person.
