Restore Your Teeth from Ear to Ear
If you have broken, damaged or missing teeth, restorative dentistry can give your smile a fresh start. In many cases, crowns and bridges are the best solution for these dental problems. Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges are fixed pieces that are cemented onto existing teeth. They are secure, which means they can only be removed by a dentist.
When Do You Need a Bridge or Crown?
Your dentist may recommend a crown or bridge to do the following:
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
- Restore a damaged tooth.
- Cover a dental implant.
- Replace a large filling when there’s isn’t enough tooth remaining.
- Cover a discolored or poorly structured tooth.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is a dental appliance that is used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently with adjacent teeth or dental implants. It is often referred to as a fixed partial denture, and in many cases, teeth on either side of a missing tooth must be reduced in size for the bridge to attach correctly. Bridges are custom-made, and can consist of a variety of materials, including porcelain and metals.
What is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth or dental implant, and it helps to strengthen and protect the tooth’s structure. A dentist may recommend a crown if you have a large cavity that is threatening the health of a tooth. At All Smiles Dental Groups, we have a number of crown material types, from full porcelain to full metal. The dentist will present you with your options and suggest the best option for you.
