An incomplete smile not only distracts but can alter our bite and can lead to further complications if untreated. Thanks to dental crowns your dentist may be able not only to fill the unsightly gap but may even prevent an extraction. They are made not only to look just like your natural teeth but are also strong and durable enough to take over for the missing tooth. If you would like to learn more about crowns and bridges there is no one better to guide you than the professionals of Metro Dental Associates in Morristown, NJ.
A damaged tooth can be more than an aesthetic concern and a dental crown can address problems of both form and function. A crown can protect a tooth that has been injured to prevent it from incurring further damage and to give your tooth back its natural appearance.
In cases of decay, where it has progressed beyond where fillings may have helped to halt it, a root canal is usually called for. This procedure can stop decay from advancing onto the bone below, eliminate pain, and save your tooth. But because so much of it has to be removed it will require protection in the form of a crown.
It's an unfortunate truth that teeth can not always be saved, sometimes an extraction is a necessary course to help prevent the other teeth to shift and potentially lead to spacing problems.
For these cases, dental bridges can help restore your smile.
The procedure uses the healthy teeth adjacent to the gap to support the crown that will replace your missing tooth.
