Dental restorations are ways by which the dentist can help patients restore missing teeth. Some of the popular methods of replacing teeth include using crowns, bridges, fillings, implants, and dentures.
What are Crowns?
Crowns are restorations that can cover or encase the surface of teeth to restore its shape, size, and function. Dental crowns are perfect for teeth that are broken, decayed, and dull.
What is the procedure involved in getting crowns?
Dental crowns require at least two visits to the dentist's office. During the first visit, the dentist would examine and prepare the tooth that requires the crown. Based on the examination, an impression of the tooth would be made in the form of a dental crown. During the patient's second visit, the dentist would carefully set the custom-made crown over the tooth that needs restoring.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges are uniquely designed dental restorations that could be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges not only replace missing teeth but also helps to maintain the shape of your face and alleviates stress.
Bridges may be made from Gold, alloys, porcelain, or a mixture of these materials.
What is the procedure involved in getting dental bridges?
The procedure involved in getting dental bridges is a step-by-step process. The dentist would undergo a series of filing process in the adjacent teeth on either side of the gap in order to prepare teeth to receive the bridge. The patient would be given temporary bridges until the permanent ones are ready.
