Sometimes our teeth require a little extra help and support from restorative dentistry to function properly. A dental crown is one of the best treatment options for teeth that are damaged and weak. A crown is a type of covering that is placed on top of the tooth that can be used to restore a tooth with a fracture, help reshape and improve the appearance of a tooth, and even used to replace large fillings. Crowns are popular options and highly recommended by dental professionals due to their strong nature and durability. They are a permanent solution and can only be removed by a dentist, making them an excellent long-term option.
In some cases, you may be missing an entire tooth or even several teeth. In these situations, a dental bridge may be an ideal option. Dental bridges are placed in your mouth to cover the space where the tooth is missing. It is permanently placed on your teeth, which keeps it strong and prevents the need to frequently visit the dentist to repair it.
There are varying types of materials used to make dental crowns and bridges and they are designed to resemble your natural teeth as much as possible. These items are also extremely easy to care for and require basic dental hygiene practices such as daily brushing and flossing your teeth. It is also vital that you regularly visit your dentist for checkups and to ensure all your dental restorations are in place and there is no damage.
Replacing a missing tooth and helping weak or damaged teeth is essential. Each individual tooth has a specific function, and when you don’t take care of them, your entire mouth and day-to-day activities like eating are impacted.
