Teeth that are broken down or structurally weak can benefit from crowns, which hold the tooth together and provide strength. Bridges are used to fill the space left by a missing tooth. A false tooth fills the space and is attached to the teeth on either side. Veneers can be used to cover the front surface of the teeth to make them appear straighter and more beautiful.
Dental implants are not for everyone but they can be a very effective way to replace missing teeth. Implants can replace one tooth, several teeth, or a whole mouth can be restored through an implant-supported denture. Implants are as close as technology has come to simulating a real tooth.
