Smile Without Damaged Teeth
Missing and broken teeth may have you feeling self-conscious about your smile. Restorative dentistry can aid with this issue, as well as improve your dental health. A dentist can cement a bridge or crown to your existing teeth to provide a permanent solution for your smile.
Do I Need Bridges or Crowns?
Crowns and bridges can be used to solve the following problems:
- Restoring your broken teeth
- Strengthening a weak tooth
- Replacing a large filling or worn down tooth
- Protecting dental implants
- Concealing discolored or damaged teeth
A dental bridge is an appliance used to replace missing teeth by being fixed to adjacent teeth or implants. Sometimes it is referred to as a fixed partial bridge. Bridges are custom made to fit your teeth and can be created from porcelain, metals or a variety of other materials. In some cases, teeth adjacent to the missing tooth may need to be shaved down to help the dental bridge attach.
The purpose of a dental crown is to reinforce the structure of a tooth. A crown is essentially a cap covering the tooth or implant. Crowns are made from materials like porcelain or metal and are shaped to adhere to your tooth a provide a natural look. Usually, dental crowns are used on teeth with large cavities.
