No matter how amazingly you dress, a perfect glistening smile is the best piece of ornament you can adorn. Some of us have the pleasure of boasting a graceful smile naturally; however, for some, this may not stand true. Teeth can become discolored due to habits such as smoking, caffeine and consumption of dark foods and liquids. Occasionally, teeth may also wear off and lose their shape and size. Whereas, sometimes, you may lose some teeth owing to dental cavities, gum diseases or trauma. Whatever may be the cause of your dulled smile, we at Hala Medical Center can fix it.

How Are Damaged and Missing Teeth Fixed?

Whether you have a damaged or missing tooth, it can be treated with the help of cosmetic dental procedures. These procedures take the help of false or fake teeth to conceal damaged teeth and replace missing teeth to reveal a glowing smile.

Types of Fake Teeth

Fake teeth is an umbrella term colloquially used to describe various dental procedures. Let’s look at this one by one in the following section.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns or tooth caps fit on top of your teeth to restore their shape, size, color and function. Dental crowns are also used to replace missing teeth when used in the form of a dental bridge. For dental bridges, adjacent teeth are used for support with the help of a dental crown to suspend a solid false tooth or teeth in the missing area. Porcelain crowns are gaining immense popularity in recent times due to their high aesthetic value and strength.


Veneers are wafer thin, tooth-coloured shells that are placed on the front surface of your teeth. Veneers elegantly conceal stained, crooked, and damaged teeth. They can also be used to fill tiny gaps between the teeth to produce a youthful and dazzling smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer the most superior teeth replacement options as they look and feel just like a natural tooth. Dental implants are screw-shaped surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. Once the implant is placed and fixed, the top portion is restored with the help of a dental crown, bridge or denture to complete and establish your smile to its full glory.

How Are Fake Teeth Fitted in the Mouth?

The method of fixation varies according to the treatment you are undergoing. Dental crowns and bridges are fixed onto the damaged tooth structure with the help of dental cement that acts as glue.

Veneers are fixed to the front surface of your teeth with the help of dental cement. These dental cements have strong adhesive properties, ensuring the fake teeth stay in place, and you can confidently flash your beautiful smile.

Why Are Fake Teeth Made of Porcelain?

Porcelain is one of the strongest dental materials and can withstand regular oral forces. One of the most desirable properties of porcelain is its ability to be manipulated to match the natural tooth shade. This ensures your fake teeth blends in perfectly with your remaining natural teeth to enhance your smile. Moreover, porcelain also bonds better with the natural tooth structure, which ensures the fake teeth’ longevity.

Do Fake Teeth Feel Different?

Once your dentist places your fake teeth, it might feel slightly different for the first few days. This is to be expected as your mouth is getting used to the new feeling. However, after a week or so, you will get accustomed to this, and the fake teeth will become a part of your mouth.
