Crowns are made to cover the entire visible area of the tooth when there is extensive damage (due to caries or trauma) to the tooth. Metal and ceramic or metal-free (all-ceramic) crowns are custom made to restore the original shape and size of the teeth. The colour and shade of the crown are selected to match the adjacent natural teeth. Your opinion is the most important aspect of the shade selection process.
A bridge is made to replace a missing tooth by placing crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap (retainers) and making another crown (pontic) to fill in the gap.
White fillings on teeth are usually from composite, ceramic or glass ionomer. Caries is removed from the tooth, and the site is prepared. The shade of the filling material is selected to match that of the tooth. The composite fillings are bonded (glued) to the tooth structure. The old black fillings (mercury fillings) can be replaced with white fillings if needed.
Dentures are removable teeth that are custom made to replace the missing teeth. The most common worry for denture wearers is that the denture becomes loose over time and may pop out in social situations.
A denture can be a short term option while the more complex implant work is carried out or as long term solution to replace missing teeth.
Loose dentures can be replaced by new dentures or by relining the old ones.
