A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
A dental implant could be a solution for your missing teeth. You can go for dental implants provided you have adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant. Get your mouth screened for considering implants as an option.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. It can be two types: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Complete dentures can be placed in the mouth after the removal of all the teeth. After the removal of teeth, it takes eight to twelve weeks for gum tissues to heal. If you don’t want to live without teeth during this healing process you can go for an immediate denture but it is a temporary solution as during healing the gum shrinks and requires adjustment of this denture.
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth.
Bridges and Crowns
Crowns and bridges are a fixed solution to missing or damaged teeth. This restorative procedure uses prosthetic devices to return your smile to its natural state.
A crown is used when the tooth structure is damaged or fractured. A crown is basically a manufactured tooth. It’s generally made of porcelain or ceramic that can be colour and texture-matched to your existing teeth.
A bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing. Bridges are usually made of porcelain fused to metal in order to achieve both strength and a natural look.
A dental prosthetic is a custom-fabricated appliance created specifically to replace missing teeth.
There are a variety of dental prosthetics to choose from specifically to suit the needs of each patient. Dental prosthetics can be fabricated to replace one tooth, a few teeth in a row, several teeth throughout the mouth that aren’t in a row, or all of your teeth.

Veneers / Lumineers
Veneer is a thin wafer of porcelain that is permanently bonded to a tooth to mask its natural color, shape, or positioning in the mouth. You can either get partial or full veneers depending on your needs and budget.
If you have a samll teeth resulting in spaces, or edge of your teeth is worn away, or a malpositioned tooth appear crooked, Venner can be the option for you.
Post & Core
A core replaces the bulk of a tooth’s missing structure which can be due to decay, fracture, the loss of a filling, or related to the creation of the access cavity needed for its root canal work. A core is placed typically in preparation for making a dental crown for the tooth.
Whereas a dental post is placed to helps anchor the core to the tooth.
