BRIDGES

A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth. As you may have guessed from the name, it literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. They can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. A bridge is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

A dental implant is a metal titanium insert that is used to replace a missing tooth and or teeth. The insert can be used to retain a crown, bridge or even a denture. This is a great way of replacing missing teeth as implants are a much more reliable and permanent option and effectively aim to replace the ‘roots’ in your jaw. [intlink id=”56″ type=”page”]Read More >>[/intlink]
