Cosmetic Dentistry

When a tooth cracks, has an old large filling, is severely damaged by decay or has had root canal treatment, a crown (or cap) may be recommended to restore the tooth. Crowns are an excellent way to strengthen a tooth and protect the remaining tooth structure. Depending on their purpose, crowns can be made from a variety of different materials. Cosmetically, a crown made from porcelain is a highly aesthetic and very strong restoration that is able to both restore your tooth and enhance the appearance of your smile because as with inlays and onlay, it is designed to look and feel like a natural tooth.

 

Chipped, cracked, discoloured and misaligned front teeth can detract having a beautiful smile. Porcelain veneers can quickly and painlessly correct these imperfections to help you achieve a natural, even and aesthetic appearance. They are a thin, custom-made shell crafted of porcelain and are virtually indistinguishable in appearance from natural teeth.

 

There are certain instances when teeth require greater strength, reinforcement and support than fillings alone. Inlays and onlays are Porcelain restorations that provide the strength to fill large cavities and repair damaged or weakened teeth and because of their composition flex and move like the natural tooth does. They offer a natural, and stronger alternative to composite (white) fillings/restorations

 

A bridge, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or implants.There are different types of bridges, depending on how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct certain bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges are matched to the colour of your natural teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.
