Dental implant, veneer and gingival contouring

What are they?

Dental implants imitate natural teeth in their appearance and function. An artificial root comprising of a titanium screw is placed in the bone. A porcelain crown, bridge or a denture is then placed over this to provide a secure, functional and cosmetic result. This treatment can be combined with other cosmetic dentistry such as porcelain veneers and remodelling of the gum line to achieve fantastic results.
