Crowns, Bridges & Veneers in Toowoomba
Your smile is one of your most impressive assets. It is what people notice most about your face when they meet or greet you, and it allows you to eat and enjoy all of the foods you love.
Ageing, physical trauma, decay or other health conditions can cause damage to your teeth and supporting structures, often reaching levels that require reconstruction, restoration or cosmetic work.
At Access Dental Services in Toowoomba, we want to help you restore your pearly whites to their natural state, helping you chew, eat and smile with the confidence you deserve.
Sometimes referred to as a “cap”, dental crowns are often an effective way to rebuild teeth that are broken, decayed or have had a filling or root canal removed. Crowns are a permanent and reliable cover that fits over your existing tooth. Made from highly durable materials, crowns mimic the look, feel and appearance of your natural teeth.
As the name suggests, a dental bridge is used to “bridge” or fill in gaps in your pearly whites that may arise from one or more missing teeth. Missing teeth can cause remaining teeth to shift out of place, and cause issues with the ability to chew, eat and even speak. Bridges are attached to adjoining teeth utilized as an anchor to fill in the “gap” in-between with false prosthetic teeth.
Veneers are a permanent corrective dental prosthetic often utilized for cosmetic reasons. Dental veneers are placed over your existing teeth to enhance the overall shape, form, color, and function of your teeth. They are thin, semi-translucent shells developed from porcelain and are a fast and effective way to enhance your smile.
