A dental crowns are recommended for a tooth that has permanently eroded parts of its structure.
Dental crowns, thus reversing the appearance of decay, can repair this erosion. In other cases, an accident such as an athletic mishap and render a smile damaged, crowns can also be used to fix this problem..
A dental crown may be needed when at least one of the following occurs:
1. To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
2. To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
3. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
4. To hold a dental bridge in place
5. To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
6. To cover a dental implant
Dental bridges are false teeth used to fill gaps where a tooth has fallen out in order to improve the look and function of the teeth.
Teeth can fall out due to disease, decay and physical trauma, but bridges can be inserted to reconstruct a person’s smile and make sure that they don’t suffer any of the negative effects associated with tooth loss.
When a tooth falls out there is always a chance that the surrounding teeth will naturally shift to fill the empty space. There is also a chance that decay may occur in the surrounding teeth, or that gum disease and speech impediments may result from the loss of a tooth. In severe cases tooth loss can lead to a collapsed bite and jaw problems. Luckily, dental bridges can help prevent these problems by filling in the vacant space that is left when natural teeth fall out.
Dental bridges are most effective for people who have only a few missing teeth because when they are inserted they are usually anchored to surrounding natural teeth
