In a perfect world, all of us would have perfectly aligned, pearly white teeth that lasts a lifetime. However, our bodies will naturally change over time and as most people age, they will start to lose their teeth due to a range of factors including loss of bone mass, periodontal diseases, lack of oral hygiene or unpredictable accidents.
Thanks to the advancement in dental care technology, teeth restoration is now an absolutely viable procedure that can help patients regain their radiant smile once again. More importantly, it will give you the confidence and freedom to live your life without having to feel conscious about your oral cavity.
We offer some of the most popular restoration techniques including crowns, bridges and veneers. These proven methods have tremendously changed the lives of many of our patients and they are highly recommended for people who want to regain the beauty of their natural smile.
Dental crowns which are incorrectly called “caps” are used to enhance the appearance and restore the shape and size of teeth. It can be placed over a worn down tooth and bonded with dental cement. A crown can also be place on top of an implant and it is either made out of stainless steel, different types of metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-porcelain, resin or ceramic, depending on what you need.
Bridges are another commonly used tooth restoration method. The bridge method involves the use of artificial teeth that are placed in the gaps between teeth. It is permanently adjoined to adjacent teeth to create a complete set of teeth, hence the name bridge. They help to maintain the shape of your face, restore functionality for chewing and speaking, prevents your teeth structure from falling apart, amongst other things.
Veneers are wafer-thin pieces of ceramic material that are shaped like teeth, and they are usually used to cover up chipped, worn down, discoloured, misaligned, and irregularly shaped teeth. It is also regularly used to cover up the gap between teeth to improve aesthetic appearances.
Although crowns, bridges and veneers are great cosmetic surgery and oral health restoration methods, it doesn’t mean that you can neglect your overall hygiene and maintenance of your natural teeth. Remember to visit Suncoast Dental for regular check-ups, brush, floss and practice good oral hygiene every day as recommended by our dentists!
