Many people suffer from missing teeth due to injury, decay or disease. Whatever the reason, if you are missing teeth, restoration dentistry can give you back your smile! When gaps are left in your smile, surrounding teeth can begin to shift out of place. In addition, the jaw bone will begin to deteriorate where the tooth is missing. By restoring your tooth, you not only improve the appearance of your smile but also help maintain your oral health. Dental crowns and bridges are two options for restoring missing teeth. Depending on your smile, your dentist can recommend the best restoration treatments for you. If you are interested in dental crowns or bridges in New York, NY, our team can schedule a consultation to examine your smile.
Crowns are used to restore damaged teeth or replace missing teeth. A dental crown can be used as a cap to cover a damaged tooth. If a tooth needs to be protected or restored, a dental crown completely covers the tooth to save it from extraction and improve the appearance of the tooth. Dental crowns are colored matched to surrounding teeth and custom made to fit and function properly. Crowns that replace missing teeth are used in the implant process or with dental bridges. Restorative crowns are made to blend in with your smile and function like a natural tooth.
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge anchors to a tooth on either side of the gap and creates a secure place for dental crowns to be placed. A dental bridge looks natural and is made to last for years to come. By replacing your missing teeth, you can gain back your confidence and fully restore your smile.
