Amalgam and Composite Fillings
Amalgam (silver) fillings are resistant to wear. Being more noticeable than composite fillings they are not usually used in very visible areas, such as front teeth. Composite fillings are matched to be the same colour as your teeth and therefore used where a natural appearance is desired. Composite material may not be ideal for large fillings as they may chip or wear over time.
Dental implants are metal posts (or frames) that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gums. Once in place, they allow for replacement teeth to be fixed onto them.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth’s pulp (tissue in the center of the tooth). Once the damaged, diseased or dead pulp is removed, the remaining space is filled to seal off the root canal.
In the past, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed but now root canal treatment can save many teeth that would otherwise be lost.
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be freely removed for cleaning. While dentures will never feel exactly the same as your natural teeth, modern dentures are more comfortable than ever and look natural. Full and partial dentures can be made. We will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on how many teeth need to be replaced and the cost involved.
Crowns and Bridges
Unlike dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are fixed onto existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by a dentist.
A crown is used to entirely ‘cap’ a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening, a crown can be used to improve appearance, shape, or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant.
Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are fixed to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the gap. With crowns and bridges you have a choice of materials, some of which can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth.
