Porcelain used to create a variety of dental restorations can be shaped to imitate an actual tooth. At the same time, this material provides a high level of resilience to withstand the normal wear and tear of enamel. Porcelain crowns look like natural enamel and are a highly preferred choice of restoration, as crowns replace the outer part of the tooth. Not only can crowns from Dothan Cosmetic Dentistry fix a broken tooth, but they can also be utilized to improve a tooth’s appearance for an enhanced smile. Call Dr. Gaunt today to schedule your appointment.
Porcelain dental crowns are custom designed to restore teeth that are affected by severe decay or damage. A crown not only gives the tooth strong and protective support, it also creates a renewed appearance. Crowns can be very effective in protecting weak teeth from fracture. They are made to cover the entire tooth and are specifically designed to be comfortable and natural looking. Porcelain crowns can often be the best option for giving a very damaged tooth a renewed appearance.
Another form of tooth replacement available is fixed bridge. Unlike dentures and partials, fixed bridges are not removable. They are retained by your own teeth! Crowns on either side of the bridge of replacement teeth affix to your remaining teeth to give your fixed bridge stability and a comfortable feel. A fixed bridge can restore your smile when missing teeth have interrupted oral function and beauty, giving you the ability to chew and speak without worry of people noticing missing teeth. We highly encourage anyone who is missing even a single tooth to explore tooth replacement options such as fixed bridges with Dr. Gaunt because missing teeth can have a very negative effect on your overall oral function and bite. Other teeth will begin to shift and move in response to the empty space. A fixed bridge is one way to replace teeth and counteract this problem.
