Are you suffering from broken teeth, missing teeth or teeth with large fillings? Titirangi Dental can provide dental restorations and tooth replacement here in West Auckland. It is important to consider solutions for tooth replacement because missing teeth can cause other dental and health issues. Specifically, missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, it can create a loss of facial structure that leads to sagging and older appearance, and it can lead to a loss of normal mouth function.
Our dental clinic is dedicated to providing patients with the latest techniques, equipment and dental materials in order to rebuild your smile into one that is functional as well as beautiful. Our tooth replacement solutions involve crowns, bridges, dentures and implants.
Are you missing one or more teeth? Dental implants are the perfect, long-lasting solution to restore missing teeth down to the root. This is a procedure that has a very high success rate. It involves inserting a dental implant into the root of the missing tooth and allowing it to fuse with the bone. Once this is done, your dentist will place a ceramic crown on top. Together, the two components function as a permanent tooth replacement that both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
Tooth-Supported Fixed Bridge
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap between missing teeth. Tooth-supported fixed bridges are the most traditional type of bridge. The process of applying a bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. This provides a stable solution with good aesthetics and function that is fairly easy to install.
Removable Partial Denture
This is a semi-permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap, but a denture can be unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort.
Dental crowns are used to cover or cap a tooth that has been damaged and weakened due to decay, trauma or a deep cavity that has been filled. Crowns are also used to cover the dental implant for missing teeth. They improve function, structure and aesthetic.
