Want to know more about different tooth restorations from your Thornton, CO, dentist, Dr. Christina O. McMillon?
The health and appearance of your smile is important for both proper dental functionality and your overall self-esteem—dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and implants can help you achieve both of these things. Read on to learn if you could benefit from a tooth restoration:
Dental crowns are porcelain caps that cover teeth. The reason you may need a crown is to protect damaged teeth or hide those that have been marred by cosmetic flaws. Crowns provide a much needed protective layer, similar to enamel, to ensure teeth stay healthy and look attractive.
Bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that are needed when someone is suffering from tooth loss. Additionally, these custom-made restorations blend seamlessly into your smile and restore its biting and chewing functionality.
Although still reinforcing to a degree, these dental restorations aren't so much for strength, but rather for aesthetics. If you have severe stains, minor cracks/chips, and/or small gaps, then veneers will hide these issues by being bonded to the surface of your natural teeth, thus giving you reason to smile confidently.
For those suffering from tooth loss, dental implants are the longest-lasting and highest functioning restorations available today. With the ability to replace missing tooth roots, implants not only improve your smile aesthetics but also prevent jawbone deterioration and collapse.
