Cosmetic Reconstruction Procedures
- Implants – Implants are recommended to replace missing teeth (one or more). Secured in the jaw bone, implants are strong and natural-looking, much like your natural teeth.
- Veneers – If you have any dental flaws, such as stained or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers are a suitable option. A porcelain material that is natural-looking and similar in color to your teeth is used to correct the damaged teeth for an improved smile.
- Crowns – For teeth that are severely damaged, a tooth-shaped cap can be placed over the tooth to restore its functionality and strength. Crowns are typically made from resin, metal, porcelain or ceramic.
- Bridges – When you have a tooth missing and strong surrounding teeth, a dental bridge may be used. This consists of crowns being placed on surrounding teeth and an artificial tooth in the space of the missing tooth to complete a natural-looking smile.
When your smile is no longer beautiful, bright and functional, it’s time to speak to a dental professional to discuss what options are available to bring your smile back to life.
