Crown & Bridge: This is a cap that covers the entire crown (visible) portion of a tooth. If a tooth is broken or fractured beyond repair you will probably need a crown. A crown may be indicated in cosmetic enhancement for a beautiful smile. Crowns are available in metal (gold), tooth colour (porcelain) or a combination of both materials.
A bridge consists of two or more crowns plus a pontic(s) in between which replace one or two missing teeth. The crowns on either side of the gap act as anchors for the bridge. Both crowns & bridges are fixed restorations that are cemented to the teeth and are very durable.
Veneers: are ultra-thin porcelain shells bonded to the front surface of your anterior (front) teeth. They are indicated when your anterior teeth are poorly shaped, worn, spaced, permanently stained, chipped or you just want a more beautiful smile.
Dentures: These are functional removable appliances that replace missing teeth and their soft tissues.
- Complete Denture: Replaces All Natural Teeth And Rest Directly On The Gum To Support Your Lips And Cheeks. They Aid In Chewing, Speech And Esthetics.
- Partial Denture: Replace One Or More Teeth And Is Fitted To The Existing Natural Teeth To Prevent Further Shifting Of Remaining Teeth, Aid In Chewing Of Food, And Help With Speech.
Both removable dentures will enhance appearance, improve chewing, help with speech and maintain the airway.
Airway Orthodontic Appliances: We treat the “root cause” of crooked teeth, not the symptoms. The orthotic system we use, if started early, will prevent crooked teeth and prevent future sleep-disordered breathing by teaching "optimum oral function" with myofunctional therapy. Talk to one of our knowledgeable clinicians about this innovative system.
