ridges, crowns and other dental devices, such as veneers, are used for various purposes. Typically they are used to restore the tooth and smile as well as to prevent further damage and decay. These devices can be used to improve the smile overall by improving the appearance of teeth through proper alignment.
What is a dental crown?
A crown is used to repair a severely damaged or broken tooth. A crown is fitted over a tooth to prevent further decay or damage from occurring while also restoring a normal look to the tooth. Placing a crown on a tooth does not require any implantation or removal procedures.
What are bridges used for?
A bridge is used to fill in the space that is caused when one or more teeth are missing. To fill the space, a prosthetic tooth is implanted into the mouth. Bridges are commented to adjacent teeth to ensure that the prosthetic tooth looks natural.
Veneers – Providing strength and improvements
Veneers can also be used to strengthen the teeth and improve the smile. Veneers are made of thin pieces of porcelain which are designed to mimic the look of a tooth. Veneers can be used to alter the color, size and shape of a tooth.
