Now more than ever before, the technology exists to repair nearly any dental issue. This is especially true of missing and damaged teeth, which can be efficiently replaced or covered with crowns and bridges. Both are fixed prosthetic devices that are permanently placed in the mouth. Unlike other devices like dentures that can be removed at home, crowns and bridges can only be removed by a dentist. Depending on the damage inside of your mouth, crowns, bridges, or both could be exactly what you need to smile with confidence once again.
Crowns Cap Damaged Teeth and Replace Missing Teeth
A crown is a valuable tool to improve the appearance and function of a damaged tooth. It covers or “caps” your damaged tooth to provide a more appealing and consistent appearance. This strengthens the tooth during chewing and speaking, enhances the tooth’s shape, and even improves its alignment. If you have an implant, a crown is affixed to the implant to mimic the natural shape, structure, and function of the tooth you lost.
Dr. Tadros at Dental Implant Solutionz may recommend that you receive a crown in order to protect a weak tooth from fracturing, complete a dental implant, cover a discolored or unsightly tooth, or replace a large filling. In the case of dental implants, Dr. Tadros creates a diagnostic wax up to visualize how your new smile will look with your crowns before you begin undergoing treatment.This type of customized treatment ensures that you will be pleased with the results.
Bridges Resolve Multiple Missing Teeth
While crowns can target single teeth, bridges are better suited for tackling multiple missing teeth. Since large gaps left by missing teeth cause surrounding teeth to shift and ruin your bite, it is very important to fill those spaces with a bridge. Dr. Tadros provides custom bridges that are supported on each end by dental implants. Each bridge spans the length of areas of missing teeth to correct aesthetic issues, restore natural chewing function, and preserve the health of the mouth.
