The Perks of Restorative Dentistry
Here at Cyprus Family Dental in Magna, we use restorative dentistry to replace and repair teeth that are missing or damaged. Using dental crowns and dental bridges, we can give you a complete, even, and healthy smile. Restorative dentistry will give you your natural look back. It can also protect your teeth from future health problems.
What are Dental Crowns?
A crown is a dental cap that fits seamlessly over a tooth. The dental crown completely encases the visible portion of the tooth. A dental crown can be used to enhance and strengthen your teeth.
Dental crowns can improve all of the following situations:
- Weak or decayed teeth.
- Teeth that are cracked or broken.
- Worn down teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Darkened or discolored teeth.
Dental crowns will add a beautiful touch to the appearance of unsightly teeth. They will also fortify your teeth against further breakage or decay so that you can have better oral health now and in the future.
What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge covers the gap created by missing teeth. Whether you are missing a tooth due to physical trauma, gum disease, or for any other reason, a dental bridge can give your complete smile back to you.
A bridge consists of two dental crowns that are placed over two natural teeth on either side of a gap. The pontic, or replacement tooth or teeth, is what connects the two dental crowns, and will fit into the gap in order to “bridge” it.
Dental bridges can:
- Give you your confident, complete smile back.
- Make it easier to chew and speak properly.
- Restore the natural shape and lift of your face.
- Prevent other teeth from shifting in your mouth.
By carrying out these functions, you can enjoy a full smile again with your very own dental bridge!
