Are a new front surface for a tooth. They are made from very thin layers of ceramic material which are bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are very versatile and can be use to mask discolorations, brighten a smile, mask chipped or stained teeth, close gaps and align crowned or protruding teeth. Often they are the ideal choice for improving the appearance of front teeth.
This involves using a tooth coloured material to fill in unsightly gaps. There is no invasion of the tooth surface. Only one visit is needed and can last several years provided all factors are favourable.
A crown covers or “caps” a tooth to restore its normal shape and size. It will provide full coverage of the underlying tooth hence strengthen and improving the appearance of the tooth.
Crowns are necessary when a tooth is extensively broken down. If a tooth is cracked it is often the only treatment option available. It will hold the tooth together to protect it so the damage doesn’t get worse. If a tooth has been root treated we often recommend a crown as the remaining tooth will be weak, brittle and liable to fracture.

A bridge will permanently replace on or more missing teeth. It does not need to be removed from the mouth like a denture. Closing the space is important for cosmetic reasons. Leaving the gap open can put a strain on the teeth either side. It can also affect your “bite”. The teeth on either side of the gap may lean toward each other into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth meet, which can cause a number of other problems. A dental bridge is greatly influenced by factors under your own control such as diet and how will you take care of your teeth.

This is an artificial tooth that is surgically placed into your jaw bone. The benefit of using implants is that they don’t rely on neighbouring teeth for support. They are permanent and stable.
Implants are a good solution to tooth loss, because they look and feel like natural teeth. Implant material is made from different types of metallic and bone like ceramic material that are compatible with the body tissue.
