Dental crowns can give you an amazing smile, because you can choose a crown made completely of porcelain. Porcelain has some great advantages like these:
- Porcelain reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel
- Porcelain looks just like natural tooth structure
- Porcelain is stain resistant
All of these factors combine to give you a beautiful, natural-looking crown that will blend perfectly with your smile.
Now let's talk about dental bridges. They are an excellent choice to replace missing teeth, providing both the strength you need, and the beauty you want for your smile.
A dental bridge is composed of prosthetic teeth, which will take the place of the teeth you have lost. These teeth are suspended over the space where you are missing teeth. They are held in place by anchor teeth, called abutment teeth, which are on both sides of the space. Crowns are made for the abutment teeth and the crowns are attached to the prosthetic teeth. Then, the entire bridge, abutment teeth and prosthetic teeth, is cemented in place.
Dental bridges restore the beauty of your smile, and they provide increased surface area for chewing, so you can enjoy the foods you love.
