Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari, is happy to offer a number of high quality restorative dental procedures to her patients. If you have damaged or broken teeth, you probably feel a bit self-conscious about the way your smile looks. You are also at a higher risk for further damage and decay. These days, teeth can be restored flawlessly, with tooth-like materials that will look like they belong in your mouth. Today we will talk about two popular restorations: Dental crowns for decayed teeth and dental bridges for missing teeth.
Most dental crowns these days are fashioned from high-quality, tooth-colored porcelain. The materials can be layered for unprecedented strength and amazingly realistic aesthetics. Dental crowns are used to restore a teeth that are damaged or lacking in full structure due to infection. Sometimes a crown is necessary when infection spreads to the roots of teeth, or as a result of a previous dental procedures failing (such as a metal filling that expands and cracks your tooth). Dental crowns can also be used to cover the titanium post of a dental implant, or to attach to a bridge to give the appearance of a tooth.
Dental bridges are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth. These prosthetics can be used to replace a single tooth or an entire section of missing teeth. Bridges are custom made to blend in with your natural tooth structure seamlessly. They also restore proper bite alignment which helps to stop problems with TMJ pain or disorder. Dental bridges may also be referred to as partial dentures. Patience appreciate the restoration of freedom to smile, eat, and speak freely. You will also feel renewed confidence in your smile, which may have you grinning from ear-to-ear at everyone you pass by.
