In addition, missing teeth allow for the movement of neighbouring teeth into the spaces which can lead to functional problems in years to come.Missing teeth can be treated with great aesthetic and functional success through the use of implants and bridges. Ask your dentist about the best option for you.

If you have teeth are worn, decayed or broken enquire about the options that can help restore their strength and appearance. Such treatments include crowns and bonding.
