Should I get dental veneers or dental crowns
This depends on the state of your teeth. For minor imperfections, cosmetic chips or cracks we would recommend dental veneers. However, if you need something to support and strengthen the structure of your tooth then it may be better for you to have dental crowns.
Why should I replace a missing tooth?
Replacing a missing tooth has a number of health benefits associated with it. For example, if you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant it helps to keep your jawbone and gums healthy as well as preventing your other teeth from becoming crooked.
Other tooth replacement treatments include dental bridges and dentures. However, the best tooth replacement option is generally considered to be dental implants.
Why get root canal therapy and not extraction?
Your natural tooth is better for your overall oral health. By saving the tooth from extraction—and helping prevent the spread of infection—you are taking better care of your oral health.
If a tooth does need to be extracted we strongly recommend you have dental implant treatment, or if you are not suitable for dental implants we offer dental bridge and dentures treatments.
