Crowns and bridges are tried and true methods for repairing major tooth damage.
Whether due to accident, disease, or just normal wear and tear, crowns and bridges offer a long-term solution for damaged teeth. These are ideal for teeth that have been damaged beyond repair because they restore the appearance and function of the tooth.
The procedure for placing a crown involves removing any decay from the tooth and then shaping the tooth. It may be necessary to install a temporary crown for a short period before placing the permanent crown. Crowns are cemented over the existing tooth to restore its shape and make it look like new. With proper care, crowns can last for 20 to 30 years.
If you have a tooth that is missing completely, then a bridge can fill in the gap to restore your smile. Bridges are artificial teeth that attach to the adjacent teeth in order to stay in place. These differ from removable partial dentures because they offer a more permanent solution and can only be removed by a dental professional. This also increases their stability so that you can enjoy normal activities without having to worry about your bridge coming out.
