A dental implant is the ‘state of the art’ alternative to replacing a tooth, or closing a gap where a tooth once used to be. An implant can be a single tooth replacement, or involved in a bridge, replacing numerous teeth.
For more than five decades Valplast® flexible partials have been the preferred choice of patients looking for a method of tooth replacement that is aesthetic, comfortable and affordable.
Bridges, like crowns are made from porcelain, and are designed to match the natural colour of the teeth, to give a natural appearance.
