Information About Dental Implants, Crowns, Braces and More

Implants are like your teeth and feel so natural that you may forget that you ever lost your teeth. Provided you have good oral and general health, implants are better than dentures and bridges.

More about dental implants:
Same-day dental implants can be a great way to replace missing teeth, especially if you have only one missing front tooth. The same-day implant procedure is getting popular, however, the chance of implant failure is higher.
Rare allergic reactions or aesthetic reasons can sometimes indicate a zirconia implant instead of titanium. Zirconia implants are relatively new but look very promising.
Get your smile back with dental crowns
A dental crown is an artificial cap placed on a cracked/damaged tooth to re-establish its size, shape, appearance, and improve its strength.

E-max crowns are also very popular. Just like zirconia crowns, they look great, are durable, and not cheap...
Zirconia crowns are getting popular. Great durability, great esthetics, and an acceptable price.
Bridges for multiple missing teeth
Dental bridges are used to replace multiple adjacent teeth. They can be supported by neighboring teeth or dental implants (preferred).
For longer bridges (4+ units) zirconia is the go to material. E-max is often used for short span (up to 3 units) front bridges.

A Maryland bridge is a minimally invasive method to replace a missing tooth. It is recommended for front teeth. It's advantage is that is requires minimal preparation of the adjacent teeth.
Zirconia is a very durable material, suitable for making long span bridges. It also looks very natural.
Straighten misaligned teeth with braces
Crooked, twisted, or overlapping teeth? Braces can go a long way in correcting these issues.
Most often used braces:
The tried and tested method of straightening misaligned teeth. Metal braces have been used for a really long time, they can help in the more complex cases too. Their only drawback is esthetics.
