Repair Damaged Teeth With Crowns and Bridges
Sometimes your teeth are damaged beyond repair. Trauma or decay can leave a tooth cracked, chipped, discolored or fractured. When that happens, a crown and bridge can repair your teeth better than a traditional filling.
Crowns vs. Bridges
Crowns are used to cover a damaged tooth. They are used to strengthen the natural tooth while giving you a more attractive smile. The shape, size, and position of the crown fits perfectly in your mouth, instantly giving you a natural looking, radiant smile.
In some cases, you might need the damaged tooth pulled. This will leave a gap between your teeth, which can lead to a variety of other oral health problems and concerns. A bridge is used to prevent those oral health problems by filling the space left between your teeth.
Both crowns and bridges are used to repair damaged teeth. Depending on the extent of the damage to your teeth, Dr. Badie will recommend either a crown or bridge for you.
The Benefits of Getting a Crown or Bridge
Dentists use crowns and bridges as an attractive replacement to your natural tooth. They are form fitted to your mouth. This way, the shape, size, and position of your damaged tooth matches to perfection.
