Prosthetic dentistry is where broken or missing teeth are repaired or replaced using, fillings, crowns & bridges, denture or implants.
It involves the rehabilitation of the dentition back to function and aesthetics.
Tooth coloured fillings includes composites, GICs and ceramic inlays and onlays.
These materials provide high levels of biocompatibility as well as good aesthetics and function.
Crowns are a way of restoring a heavily broken down tooth back to its original shape, function and aesthetics.
Bridges are an extension of crowns in that they are used with crowns to replace missing teeth.
Dentures exist in 2 varieties - full and partial. Full dentures replace a full jaw of missing teeth whilst partial dentures replace several missing teeth across the jaw.
Implants provide a strong, stable and long lasting replacement for missing single or multiple teeth cases up to full jaw tooth replacement.
