Hiding your smile every time your photo is taken is not a viable solution and it will not make you feel good about yourself in the long run. No matter how ‘ugly’ you think your teeth look, there are plenty of ways dentistry can help.
At Waters Green Dental, we believe in the power of preventive dentistry and our goal is to help our patients maintain their oral health; however, teeth and gums are susceptible to disease, decay, infection and – sometimes – accidents. Our dentist in Macclesfield will restore your teeth regardless of the circumstances.
Tooth restoration at Waters Green Dental can be achieved in many ways – the most popular of them include crowns, bridges, dentures and dental implants. Your trusted dentist in Macclesfield will help you choose the best option for your individual needs.
Crowns (alternatively known as dental caps), are porcelain restorations created to look just like natural teeth. Crowns protect and strengthen very weak or heavily filled teeth.
Bridges have been used in dentistry for many years for replacing a few missing teeth in a row. These restorations are made of multiple crowns. In order to be stabilised they need to rely on neighbouring teeth.
Dentures, whether full or partial, are the older tooth-replacement method still in use. Modern dentures are less bulky than their predecessors and they are made of natural-looking materials for a better appearance. Dentures can be either full or partial, and are attached to the gums with the help of a denture adhesive.
Out of all the above tooth-replacement solutions, dental implants is the most viable treatment. Unlike bridges that rely upon the neighbouring teeth for support of dentures that become loose over time due to jawbone loss, dental implants are stabilised in the jawbone and fuse with the bone tissue, creating a strong and stable base for replacement teeth. With proper care, dental implants can last for many years.
