Northland’s Expert Prosthodontist Specialising in Crowns, Veneers & Bridges

Missing, broken and chipped teeth pose two main problems: They affect the aesthetics of your smile and can jeopardise oral health.

Whereas these issues were once hard (if not impossible) to treat, developments in modern dental technology has meant that they are no longer problems we have to live with. At Rescue Dentist, we specialise in prosthodontics – that is, cosmetic, implant, and restorative dentistry. Accordingly, we offer a range of solutions for missing or broken teeth that can be tailored to suit the individual – from veneers and crowns, through to bridges and implants.

If you’re after a highly experienced dentist that offers crowns, bridges, implants, and porcelain veneers in Whangarei, Northland, Rescue Dentist is a great choice.

From veneers to implants, we can restore your smile!

Whether you require veneers, crowns, bridges, or implants depends on your personal situation; Rescue Dentist will make an assessment and recommendation on a case by case basis.

A crown is essentially a cap that is used to cover a damaged tooth – whether it’s broken, cracked or chipped. It covers the tooth to restore shape and colour, whilst also protecting the sensitive interior that may have otherwise been exposed.

If there are teeth completely missing, implants or bridges are generally an appropriate course of action. While an implant involves drilling into the bone to anchor a fake tooth, a bridge is held in place by the teeth either side of the space; it is essentially two crowns with a replica tooth in between. Bridges are generally made with a porcelain exterior for aesthetic reasons, however the interior is usually made from metal to ensure strength and durability. Once an impression has been taken and the bridge crafted by an expert technician, the finished result is cemented into place – restoring the patient’s natural smile.

Porcelain veneers are often used when teeth are structurally sound but the shape, spacing, and colouring is undesirable. In essence, porcelain veneers are caps that cover the teeth, but differ to crowns in that the patient’s teeth don’t require the same level of preparation; veneers are simply a thin layer that sit over the natural teeth.

We also offer amalgam removal

Rescue Dentist also offers amalgam removal – that is, the replacement of unsightly silver fillings. Amalgam fillings are replaced for both cosmetic reasons, and to remove what some consider to be harmful mercury (mercury forms part of the alloyed used in older-style fillings).
