A crown is a full coverage restoration that is placed on a tooth to restore cosmetics and function. It is needed when severe breakdown due to fracture or decay is present. Crowns are also used to restore teeth that have previously had root canal or endodontic treatment.
A dental bridge is a dental prosthesis (artificial tooth) supported by two teeth on either side of a missing tooth. Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and they cannot be removed by the patient. The two teeth on either side of the missing tooth must be prepared for crowns. The false tooth is then joined to the crowns and the entire structure (bridge) is cemented in place.
Tooth Colored fillings
We have a variety of amazing treatments and procedures available to brighten and renew your smile.
Tooth colored fillings, are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth colored fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, color and shape of teeth. These fillings are particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth; repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.
A root canal removes the diseased or infected part of the tooth, and it removes the nerve from a severely broken tooth, allowing the tooth to be saved. You may need a root canal if you have a severe toothache or throbbing pain; often along with swelling in your jaw around your tooth.
