Tooth-Coloured Repair Materials
Tooth-coloured restorations are a viable option for any patient. Tooth-coloured fillings are placed in a suitably prepared tooth to fully restore the tooth to its original shape and function. This kind of material is essential for any work done on teeth surfaces that are visible.
Crowns and Bridges
When teeth are badly damaged they may be too weak to survive with just a filling. By repairing it with a crown, a tooth may be given a new lease of life. A crown is a specially prepared copy of the tooth which needs repair. The remaining tooth structure is shaped and the crown is then cemented onto this. Even when a single tooth is missing a denture may not be required as a bridge can be used to span the gap. A bridge will utilise the two teeth that are adjacent to the gap to support a replica tooth to fill the space.
Crowns and bridges are made from several different materials, gold and porcelain being the most common types.
Orthodontic treatment is the use of braces or retainers, most commonly to straighten crooked teeth or to correct prominent upper front teeth. The type of brace chosen depends on the problems that have to be corrected. Braces can be transparent or hidden. This treatment is available to both adults and children.
