If you lose a tooth in an accident or when playing sport, there’s no need to panic. At Aqua Dental Spa, we can restore your smile using incredible single tooth replacement techniques, including dental bridges and dental implants.
Dental bridges are restorations made of a prosthetic tooth flanked by a new crown on either side. Bridge treatment is more affordable than dental implants and treatment only involves two to three sessions, which are usually two to three weeks apart. Bridges are custom-made based on impressions of your mouth and can be created using a variety of materials, including precious metals and ceramics such as porcelain. Porcelain bridges are popular because they produce very natural looking, subtle aesthetics. Bridges are not a permanent solution, but they should last for around 10-15 years.
Dental implants have taken the world of dentistry by storm and they offer a great option for patients of all ages who have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth. In the case of a single missing tooth, the implant is attached to a crown and once treatment is complete you won’t be able to notice the difference between your natural teeth and your false tooth. Implants take on the role of the tooth root and they are anchored into the jaw bone. This gives them the same level of stability as a natural tooth and means you can eat, drink and speak as normal. Implants are designed to last for many years and they are regarded by many as the best long-term tooth replacement treatment. Treatment is a lengthier process, as it takes time for the implant to integrate into the bone tissue. The average treatment time is around six months.
