Crowns and Bridges
Chipped, fractured, broken and missing teeth can make smiling embarrassing and can make things like speaking and even chewing difficult. It’s especially important to get damaged teeth fixed as soon as possible as they become extremely vulnerable to further damage and decay and the nearby teeth are also put at risk. Dental crowns and bridges are one way we can help restore damaged or missing teeth and help you get your full, beautiful smile back.
If you have missing or damaged teeth, a dental crown could be a good solution to help you restore your smile. A crown is a cap or cover that is placed on your tooth to return it to its natural shape and size. Not only does it strengthen the tooth but it also improves the way it looks.
A Dental Bridge consists of an artificial tooth called a Pontic which is attached to the mouth by crowns placed on the teeth on each side of the missing tooth. These crowns help hold the replacement tooth in place.
It may seem like your lost or missing tooth is no big deal, especially if it’s in the back of your mouth where no one can see it. However, when a tooth is lost, the other teeth on each side may begin to move into the empty space, throwing off your alignment and bite and even causing your jaw bone to begin deteriorating. Replacing a lost tooth as soon as possible is extremely important to keep your entire smile looking and feeling its best.
