A dental crown is a type of restoration treatment that is imperative for the health and protection of your teeth. It is made out of porcelain to create a cap-like structure that can fit on top of the tooth in need of restoration. Additionally, a porcelain dental crown can also be placed over a dental implant and is also used to create a dental bridge.
Dental Fillings help reverse existing damage that has already occurred on a particular tooth. It is a method of treatment often used to renew an already damaged tooth to its previous state.
When we fill a dental cavity, we are not only trying to improve the appearance of the affected tooth; we are also trying to protect it from further damage.
Dental implants are designed to replace a missing tooth by creating a solid foundation for a crown. These titanium implants are placed within the jawbone to act as the root of the missing tooth. This way, manufactured teeth can be attached to the posts protruding out of the gum. Having a stable and strong foundation not only increases their durability but increases their efficiency.
What would happen if you decided not to replace the missing tooth?
Not only will it negatively impact your smile, but your speech and eating ability will also be affected. Moreover, missing gaps in your teeth will cause your teeth to shift, interfering with your facial structure.
