Restoring a natural-looking appearance - Dental Implants Net


Dental issues, such as a large tooth fracture, a wide gap between the teeth, tooth mobility due to gum disease, and extreme tooth destruction due to tooth decay, can be resolved by post or veneer crowns.

1. Dental Implants

These are available even in cases in which conservation of the tooth is impossible due to serious gum disease or fracture of the tooth root, but can also ideally adjust the patient’s bite and tooth alignment.
Fabrication of artificial teeth with ceramics can provide a more natural-looking and beautiful smile.

2. Dental Crowns

A dental crown can replace damaged teeth that still have their root.
The dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth ? covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.
