Are you looking to restore one or several damaged or missing teeth? A decayed, damaged, or missing tooth can affect the aesthetics of one's smile and can cause discomfort or pain. The ideal option to save yourself from these discomforts and inconveniences is tooth restoration.
Crowns are dental restorations that help restore a tooth to its original appearance and functionality. They are made of durable porcelain and act as protective layers covering a broken, chipped, or a damaged tooth to prevent the tooth surface from breaking apart further.
What Conditions Do Dental Crowns Treat?
- Large fillings which need replacement
- Severely damaged teeth
- Deep cavities
- Tooth after root canal procedure
Dental Crowns - Advantages
- Crowns are durable and strong alternatives to dental fillings to treat various dental concerns. Further, for teeth with deep cavities, they provide support to the fillings and prevent the failure of the tooth.
- Crowns repair those damaged or broken teeth that can't be fixed using root canal treatment or fillings.
- Crowns are also placed on the top of dental implants as restoration teeth.
- Weak teeth after root canal therapy can be secured using dental crowns.
- Crowns conceal stained, chipped, broken, or cracked teeth.
- Dental crowns restore teeth aesthetics as they are fabricated to match the natural teeth in their color and appearance.
Dental bridges are prosthetic teeth substitutes customized to look similar to natural teeth. They are made to fill in the space of missing teeth. This restoration is held in place supported by adjacent teeth or dental implants. While placing dental bridges, the dentist prepares the adjacent teeth to act as crowns to support the prosthetic tooth.
Bridges are manufactured from different materials like porcelain, alloys, gold, or a blend of these. The durability and long-lastness of the bridges depend on the strength of the foundation to which it is connected.
What Conditions Do Dental Bridges Fix?
Dental bridges help correct the gap left by missing or extracted teeth by closing the gap.
Dental Bridges - Advantages
- By closing the space between the teeth, bridges prevent the shifting of adjacent teeth from their ideal positions into the empty spaces in your mouth.
- By replacing the missing teeth, dental bridges help restore the functionality of the teeth, including chewing, biting, speaking, etc.
- Replacing missing teeth using dental bridges with tooth-colored prosthetics like bridges improves the aesthetics of the smile and the teeth.
