Bonding, Bridges and Crown in Dentistry

Bonding

Often, bonding is a painless option for minor teeth repairs. It is also less time consuming as it can be taken care of in one visit. Bonding uses composite that matches your tooth color, then is hardened with light.

It is usually used to:

  • To look like the missing part of your chipped tooth.
  • Used to fill up empty space, and
  • Used on a broken tooth to recondition it

Think this might be right for you? Call us today and discuss it with your dentist.

Bridges

Missing teeth? No problem, we will fix that!

Bridges are made of porcelain fused to metal, also called “artificial teeth”. The bridge connects the artificial tooth, with two neighbouring crowns on each side to fill the missing gap. They are used to:

  • Fill space of missing teeth.
  • Stops remaining teeth from moving out of place.
  • Restore chewing, speaking and smiling ability.

Call us to book a free consult to find out whether or not bridges are your best option (x-rays are not included).

Crowns

Crowns are designed to act as a shield, to protect and restore your tooth. Large fillings may be a temporary fix; however, a crown is necessary

NOT to further damage or completely break your natural tooth.

Our dentists also use them for cosmetic purposes to cover a discolored or misshaped tooth and provide you with the confident smile you deserve.

Yes, as soon as your tooth is crowned it will enjoy the royalty!
