Aesthetic or concern over the safety of amalgam fillings are some of the reasons for replacing existing fillings. Composite fillings tend to wear out sooner than silver fillings in larger cavities, although they hold up as well in small cavities.
A combination of denal techniques can be used to achieve a great smile. Porcelain veneers and crowns can correct crooked teeth, an uneven gum line, and other chipped worn and discoloured teeth.
Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of the teeth. Veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite. The process is not reversible.
A crown is a “cap” that is placed over a weak or damaged tooth to improve its shape, size strength, or appearance. Most crowns last five to 15 years and can be made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin, or ceramic.
Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is applied an hardened with a special light. Bonding can repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps, change the shape of teeth or be used to replace silver amalgam fillings.
A fixed (permanent) bridge replaces one or more teeth by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching artificial teeth to them.
Gum reshaping can improve a gummy smile in which teeth appear too short or where the gum line appears uneven. A small amount of gum tissue and excess bone tissue if necessary is removed and contoured to expose mor of the teeth. This to improve and even the gum line.
We can help brighten teeth discoloured by age, smoking, cigarettes and even medication. Removing stains, and lightening the shades of the dentition.
Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.
