A decayed, broken, or damaged tooth affects your smile, causes discomfort or pain, and keeps you from eating food. The only option to relieve the discomfort is tooth restoration. Traditionally, people with missing teeth or structural tooth problems had very few tooth restoration options. Besides, people needed countless dental office visits only to have unnatural-looking partial dentures.
At Red Pine Dental, we use state-of-the-art technology to offer crowns and bridges to restore decayed or damaged teeth for ultimate efficiency, comfort, and health.
Crowns are ceramic structures that restore damaged teeth. They cover the broken or decayed tooth and become the tooth's new outer structure, restoring its original shape, size, and function. A crown can improve the tooth's appearance and functionality when its damage is so severe that fillings cannot repair. Crowns are usually made from porcelain as they are strong and mimic the natural teeth's appearance.
Bridges are prosthetic replacement teeth that fill in the space of missing or extracted teeth to improve the mouth's aesthetics and functionality.
Bridges are natural-looking substitutes for missing teeth and are supported by adjacent teeth, dental implants, or both. During bridge placement, the dentist prepares the neighboring teeth as crowns to act as abutments supporting the prosthetic tooth.
Bridges are fabricated from porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination of these. A bridge's durability depends on the health of its foundation - the adjoining teeth, gums, or bone to which it is connected. Therefore, it is important to follow oral hygiene practices to keep them strong.
