If a tooth has a very large decay or filling, the hole may be too large to “just fill it” with composite. Also the remaining tooth may have been structurally weakened by the extent of the filling, leaving it at risk of breaking we recommend Crowns, which are “caps” placed over your teeth in order to restore their strength, size, shape and appearance.
We also provide more conservative approach with an Onlay – somewhat like an extended filling that restores the tooth and protects the remaining parts from breaking. These involve much less reduction of the tooth. The use of glass fiber reinforced composite and porcelain onlays.
Dental bridges are designed to ‘bridge’ the gap when there are missing teeth. A bridge gives the effect of three crowns in a row by creating a link between the teeth in front and behind the missing tooth.
