If you have lost part of your tooth due to decay, then it may require a dental filling. Depending on the size and location of the filling you may or may not need local anaesthetic. The process is quick and will usually only require one appointment.
We use crowns to rebuild teeth which have been damages, weakened by decay, or have large fillings. They can also be used to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. You will need to come in twice for this procedure - once to prepare the tooth and make an impression, and a second time to fit the crown.
Bridges are used to replace a gap over several teeth, for aesthetic purposes and to restore function to the teeth. Like a crown, this usually involves two sessions - one to prepare the bridge and a second to fit it.
