  • Gum disease
  • Dental decay
  • Accidents and injuries

The best way for your dentist to replace your missing teeth will, to some extent, depend on how you came to lose them, as well as on the location of the tooth, the number of missing teeth, and your personal preference.

Similarly, there are many causes of damage to the teeth, including decay, accidents and injuries. Again, factors including tooth location, type and amount of damage will be taken into consideration when your dentist determines how best to repair them.

Liverpool missing teeth

At our Liverpool dental clinic we offer tooth replacement using traditional bridges and dentures, as well as with dental implants. Traditional bridges require crowns or wings placed on adjacent teeth to support a false tooth or two in between. Your dentist will permanently attach them.

Dentures can replace some or all of the teeth in one jaw. We offer a number of denture options at Liverpool Smile Studio, and your dentist will help you choose the best one for your needs.

Dental implants offer a more permanent way for your dentist to replace your missing teeth. Titanium tooth roots put directly in the jaw bone, they provide firm support for dentures, bridgework, or crowns.

Liverpool broken tooth solutions

Your Liverpool dentist may use crowns to restore extensively weakened or damaged teeth, because as well as looking realistic they also give your tooth additional strength.

For milder damage, such as small chips or cracks, your clinician may use porcelain veneers or composite bonding to create aesthetically pleasing restorations.
