Other Dental Treatments
Dental Bridgework is used to replace missing teeth including single or multiple, by using the adjacent teeth. These adjacent teeth need to be prepared so that they can support the new bridge that is made.
The bridge is made to match the shade of the remaining teeth and is cosmetically very acceptable. The bridge is fixed in the mouth and once placed is not removable.
White fillings are now available for both front and back teeth. Modern technology means that these fillings can be placed quickly and comfortably, and are matched to be the same colour as your own teeth.
The modem materials used give a better seal to the tooth making them longer lasting. The fillings now set instantly, meaning no more waiting for fillings to set when you leave the dentist. White fillings mean no more metal fillings showing when you smile.
