Dental Crowns to Protect and Strengthen Damaged Teeth

Throughout the years, your teeth become worn down, damaged, or affected by oral health problems like decay. The best way to think about getting a dental crown in Highland Village is like placing a protective coat over your damaged tooth to keep it from experiencing any further harm. Each crown is custom crafted to comfortably and snuggly be permanently placed over teeth that:

They can be made from a large variety of materials, but most patients choose to have them made out of natural-looking substances such as dental porcelain. It’s able to mimic the properties of home-grown enamel and be matched to the color of your remaining teeth, making it virtually unnoticeable.

Restoring Smiles with Dental Bridges

If you need help completing your smile because you have missing teeth, a dental bridge in Highland Village may be for you. This is a structure comprised of two crowns attached to either end of prosthetic teeth. Each crown is attached to your natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile to hold the replacement teeth securely in place, literally bridging the hole in your mouth. They can be made to be fixed or removable. These restorations are also customized to comfortably fit the shape of your unique mouth, so the replacement teeth don’t look out of place.

What are the Benefits of Crowns and Bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges have been around for ages. That’s because they offer a number of benefits for patients who are looking to restore their oral health, boost their confidence, and improve their quality of living. Whether you’ve suffered from dental trauma, past oral health issues, or the effects that aging has on your teeth, both of these restorations are customized to fix your unique issues. You can even use them together.

They are made to flawlessly blend in wit the shape, color, and size of the rest of your teeth, so you won’t have to worry about anybody noticing or commenting on them. This will allow you to speak, eat, and let your smile show with complete confidence. Plus, repairing and replacing teeth will prevent plaque and bacteria from getting into hard-to-reach places that can cause severe issues like tooth infections.

How Can You Make Your Restorations Last?

Extending the lifespan of your restorations is quite easy, and the better you look after it, the healthier and stronger it will remain. Your bridge or crown won’t be able to develop cavities or infections, but your surrounding teeth can, which could impact the stability of your restoration.

In order to keep it in good shape, be sure to brush your teeth twice each day for at least two minutes with fluoride toothpaste. While many people treat flossing daily as an option, it’s also a necessary step in your oral hygiene routine to prevent problems from arising. Lastly, don’t forget to schedule your semi-annual checkups and cleanings with either Dr. Thomas or Dr. Autumn Griffin. They’ll be able to diagnose and treat any lingering problems before they impact the strength and stability of your bridge or crown.
