How Can I Replace Missing Teeth?

There are various ways patients can replace missing teeth:

Dental bridges use a false tooth to fill the gap between two natural teeth.

Dentures are removable false teeth that can replace one tooth or a full set of teeth.

Dental implants replace the natural tooth root and are attached to dental crowns to create a natural looking tooth replacement. 

To contact a dentist for more advice, please select a dental clinic on the map.
