Loss of a tooth or a pair of consecutive teeth can cause more harm than just bad looks. Missing teeth can cause difficulty in speech and chewing and even spoil the ratio of face. Not to mention, spaces around teeth makes them extra vulnerable to tooth decay. This can be corrected by a procedure to install dental bridges.
Smiles Dental Group will work to bring back your smile is as few sittings as possible.
Dental bridges literally ‘bridge’ the gap between teeth. Dentists do this by replacing the missing teeth with a new, artificial tooth..
This artificial tooth attached to two crowns, known as abutments. Together, they make a ‘bridge’. The dentists strive to create artificial teeth that are comparable in shade to your natural teeth.
Dental bridges will restore your smile, and ease the process of chewing and speaking and also prevent other teeth from losing their alignment. They can last for a long time provided the required oral hygiene is maintained. It is a semi-permanent and can be removed by the dentist if the need arises
Smiles Dental Group provides the service of dental crowns, often called caps. Caps are required for several reasons such as to protect a weak tooth from decay, for installation of bridges, to cover a large filling, or to cover a seriously discolored tooth.
Crowns, as the name suggests, cover the part of the tooth at and above the gum line and are hence are the tooth’s new outer surface.
The installation process first involves reducing or removing of a section of the tooth in question in order to make space for the cap. This will depend on the choice of material (gold alloy, porcelain attached to metal, all resin, and ceramic). Our doctors will then take an imprint of your remaining tooth and caste a crown in it which is later installed on top of the damaged tooth. If you choose a non-metallic material, dentists can even make it appear tooth colored so that it blends in with you other teeth. In the meanwhile, you will be provided with a temporary cap to protect your tooth.
A crown may help prevent further decay and damage and A crown may also help to conceal a particularly sensitive tooth.
Our dentists will help you to decide whether you need dental crowns or porcelain veneers, depending on your age and dental history. Veneers can help you to recreate symmetry to teeth that have worn out edges. They can also help you to reduce the gaps in between caused by germ built-up or if you have smaller teeth than usual. If you are looking to temporarily beautifying your teeth or get rid of the pre-maturely aged look, veneers may be the answer for you.
Installations of dental veneers can help the appearance of teeth and can help to protect them from damage. It is basically a chip made of customized material, shaped to cover only the front portion of your tooth.
The biggest advantage that they have over dental crowns is that a lesser portion of the tooth needs to be reduced while a crown may require the removal of nearly 3-30% of your original tooth structure.
