Want to ask your West Roxbury, MA, dentist about crowns and bridges?restorative dentistry

Do you have missing teeth and are worried about replacing them with mismatched appliances? Are you having problems with your bite and chewing function? Are your teeth weak and in need of reinforcement? If so, your dentist has the solution! Just wait and hear what they have to say about the crowns and bridges offered at our West Roxbury, MA, office.

Crowns

The main function of a crown is to restore aesthetically unpleasant teeth and provide strength for weak teeth. Crowns are perfect for restoring your teeth because they are made out of a durable material called porcelain. The porcelain crowns fit over the teeth, completely covering them from all sides and adding a protective layer for your smile.

Crowns are used in cases such as:

  • Covering chips, cracks, and discolorations found on teeth, which may be due to injuries when playing sports or poor dental hygiene, among other reasons of course.
  • Covering a restorative procedure, like a root canal, protects and strengthens your teeth.
  • Crowns are placed over fillings that may be dislocated, which, again, adds reinforcement to your teeth and makes biting and chewing functions easier.

Bridges

Bridges are oral appliances that are custom made for every patient; the bridges designed for you will look like your natural teeth so no one will notice any difference!

  • Fixed dental bridges are permanent and come in many forms: conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges, and resin-bonded bridges. This means your dentist will bond the bridges to already-existing teeth (natural teeth) or dental implants.

If you have any questions or concerns about what you need to know, just call (617) 323-5000. Your dentists in West Roxbury, MA, so don't hesitate to pay him a visit as well!
