There are many reasons why teeth may end up damaged or lost, including accidental impacts from sports, advanced cases of tooth decay, the onset of gum disease, and more. Fortunately, replacing lost or damaged teeth and restoring your smile is easier than ever, with multiple treatment options and procedures available to achieve the desired results.

We provide many different treatment options for patients with missing teeth, and will work with you to

Multiple Tooth Replacement Methods
We restore smiles using a range of tooth replacement options
Dentures help restore complete sets of missing or damaged teeth with a comfortable and natural-looking solution that improves the overall well-being of patients through renewed mouth function. Modern dentures allow eating and drinking all your favourite foods, while removing any discomfort or pain in your mouth. Whether you require a full set of dentures or a partial set, we can provide you with a natural-looking tooth replacement solution that is easy to care for.
For minor cosmetic repairs and the filling of small gaps between teeth, dental bonding offers a simple, effective, and affordable solution. Dental bonding material is similar to that used in modern fillings, and is matched precisely to your natural tooth colour, allowing it to blend in perfectly with your other teeth. Bonding is a conservative dental treatment, and can usually be done in just one visit to our offices with immediate results. It’s a fast & easy way to rejuvenate your smile!
For teeth that have been broken, chipped, worn, or have been partially destroyed by tooth decay, a dental crown is used to restore the appearance and strength of the tooth. A dental crown is essentially a ‘cap’ that is placed on top of a damaged tooth with a permanent dental adhesive. Made of an extremely tough and durable dental material, crowns are colour-matched to your natural tooth shade so they are not noticeable, while offering a permanent dental repair solution.
For some instances of missing teeth, a dental bridge may be used in order to produce the desired results. Bridges can easily be described as two dental crowns affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap, with a fully-formed artificial tooth connecting them in the middle. This method fills the gap while also spreading the bite pressure evenly across the two adjacent teeth, reducing the discomfort that you would experience from biting or chewing due to the missing tooth.
For many instances where a tooth has gone missing or needed to be extracted, a dental implant provides the ideal solution for a permanent replacement. Dental implants are the closest thing to a natural tooth, not just in appearance, but also in how they are securely fused directly to the bone of the jaw. This popular method of tooth replacement helps to significantly reduce the risks of long-term bone density loss that are often associated with the problem of missing teeth.
For patients in need of a full set of replacement teeth, the All-on-4 system offers many advantages over traditional dentures. This unique approach for full-mouth reconstruction combines a full set of natural-looking dentures with the secure connections of permanent dental implants. This provides patients with a comfortable, secure, and full-functional set of replacement teeth, an improved overall quality of life, and greater self-confidence with a great looking smile.

Replacing missing teeth is essential to good dental health
There are numerous problems that can arise as a result of missing teeth. While small gaps provide an ideal environment for bacteria, plaque and tartar to build up and develop in to tooth decay or advance in to gum disease, larger gaps between teeth can also be problematic in the long run.
Without a full set of teeth to distribute the pressure of biting and chewing evenly across your jaw, your bite pattern can degrade over time and cause teeth to move out of alignment. In addition, missing teeth can also result in bone density loss as you age, thereby weakening your jaw and potentially causing pain or discomfort.
If you or someone in your family has lost a tooth, it’s best to get the proper care and treatment to replace the missing tooth and repair the damage as soon as possible. If you’re unsure about which method may be best for you, or have questions about the benefits of each type of tooth replacement, you should contact us today and arrange for free consultation to discuss your options.
