common dental restoration options to find out how your smile can be restored.
What Is a Dental
If you have minor tooth damage, a dental crown is likely the
solution. Crowns are:
created from perfectly safe yet durable material
suitable for years of use
allow for normal chewing and speaking
The biggest distinction between getting a crown and other
restoration procedures is that crowns are for repairing a single tooth. Whether
it is damaged, cracked or just weakened, placing a crown over the tooth helps
it become stronger and reverses damage. It normally takes two visits for Dr.
Moskowitz to finish the crown procedure. A temporary crown is put in place
What Is a Dental
Bridges are very similar to crowns, but they are a little
more elaborate. Bridges are made from the same material and have similar
results as crowns, because a bridge is essentially multiple crowns fused
together. If a tooth is missing, the gap can be filled by a bridge, which is
held in place by crowns on the adjacent teeth. Bridges are required when
extensive damage has been done to a tooth. Because of the custom nature of
bridges, they also require multiple visits to be made and placed. Bridges also
help prevent the shifting of teeth, which can lead to more serious problems or
gum disease. These are the two most common restoration procedures. Most dental
issues can be solved with one option or the other.
