Restorative

Chipped Tooth Options

If you have a chipped tooth, or maybe other damage or white fillings …
… there are a number of ways of solving this problem.
The chipped area could be repaired with bonding material.
The tooth could be prepared and a Crown made.
Or a veneer could be made …
… which is fixed to the front of the tooth and looks very natural.
Gold Inlay

The broken or decayed tooth is prepared.
An Inlay is made and fitted to the tooth.
Gold or white inlays are available.
Adhesive Bridge (Fibre 1-Wing)

An adhesive bridge is non destructive.
A bridge is prepared …
… and ‘stuck’ to the inside of the adjacent tooth.
Fibre Bridge

Sometimes the most sensitive way to fill a gap …
… is to utilise fillings that already exist in adjacent teeth.
These fillings are removed and matching ‘wings’ attached to the bridge …
… which fit into the spaces.
Anterior Crown

The tooth is prepared …
… and an impression taken.
A crown is made from the impression …
… and fitted to the tooth.
Over time the gum can recede away from the crown …
… this is known as the crown margin.
The old crown can be removed …
… and a new, deeper crown fitted to cover this area.
