A crown is a cap that covers the whole of the tooth. It protects the the tooth from further damage and can be used to revitalize and change the shape of the original tooth. It can be made from all porcelain to give a superior aesthetic result or a combination of porcelain and metal.
A bridge is one method used to replace missing teeth. The teeth either side of a gap are prepared and a new tooth is fixed between two connecting crowns which are then fixed into place and are unable to be removed. This provides a quick and easy way to replace either one or many missing teeth in only two short appointments.
Our answer to conservative tooth replacement, small titanium screws are fixed into your jawbone, which act like the root of a natural tooth. From here a crown (cap) is secured into place over the top of the screw to give the appearance of a perfectly natural tooth. Implant tooth replacement can either be for a single tooth or full mouth replacement.
Most people know dentures are not very secure as they are not fixed in place, and most know whether you have them or not, dentures move when you eat causing all sorts of problems, let alone embarrassment when they fall out. New Mini Dental Implants( image 1, image 2, image 3) from IMTEC can be used to stabilise and support existing dentures for the fraction of the cost of traditional dental implants in usually only one appointment..
