What's the best?
Crowns, veneers and bridges can be supported by either your natural remaining teeth or by dental implants.
There can be many options when using these treatment options, and there is seldom one answer to the question "Well, what's the best...?" The answer to that question is always, "Well, what's best for YOU?
Crowns, veneers and bridges are all forms of dental restorative components that are used to restore the tooth structure, its function and aesthetics. If you need to have a tooth or several teeth replaced, we will assess your teeth and help you select the best replacement option. Our crowns, bridges and veneers are made from excellent materials that will make it impossible for people to tell that you have something artificial. Before we can make the crown or veneer or bridge, we will use our shade guide to determine the shade of your teeth. This will ensure that what we make will be the exact same color as your natural teeth.
A crown is that part of the tooth that you see in the mouth. Artificial crowns are made to replace missing teeth and also to cover teeth that have undergone a root canal treatment. A crown can be a single unit, meaning it will only replace one tooth or it can be several units, meaning several teeth are being replaced. Crowns will help you restore your aesthetics because we are able to choose the shade that is just like your natural teeth, so people would not be able to notice that you have an artificial tooth.
Veneers are facings that are made either in the dental lab or in the clinic. The dental restorations that we use to cover the visible facing of your teeth. Veneers come in different shades and they can be a great option instead of beaching and also in cases such as congenital tooth discolouration such as dental fluorosis.
A bridge is a dental prosthesis that replaces a missing tooth or missing teeth by using the adjacent teeth as supports. A bridge helps to restore function and is a fixed prosthesis because you do not have to remove it at night. Special care has to be taken in order to prevent the adjacent teeth from having cavities. The bridge is glued or bonded to your adjacent teeth using a special dental bond.
