Each and every tooth has a special role to play. For maintaining healthy teeth and retaining a strong bite, it is important that you are not missing any component. A missing tooth often compromises the balance and health of the adjacent teeth. There is always a risk of an infection or misalignment of teeth if there is a gap that needs to be fulfilled.
For whatever reason you may have lost a tooth, either in an accident or because of decay or just because of lack of proper care, it can be replaced by a perfectly healthy artificial tooth. A bridge has proved to be the most effective and preferred restorative method.
Bridges are a more traditional way of restoring a broken or missing tooth. Unlike an implant, it takes the help of the adjacent teeth to restore the lost tooth and fill the gap. The preparation of the artificial tooth depends upon the placement of the missing tooth. If there are two healthy teeth present on either sides of the gap, then the artificial tooth is cemented to them.
Bridges can last for years without compromising the strength of your bite; in fact it ably supports your cheek and lips giving your face a fuller, younger and vibrant look.
Broken or disfigured teeth can be brought back to their true, healthy form with the help of crowns. A cracked tooth is like an open passage which can lead infection straight to the root, causing serious damage. Crown holds the tooth firmly together reducing the possibilities of further rupture and consequent tooth damage. It is also used to give a firm support to large amount of filling, to give a proper shape to a tooth or to help attach a bridge.
Expert ceramists craft the crown in perfect harmony with the structure of your tooth, considering all the aspects like the bite, shape and the size of the neighbouring teeth. After the process is complete, your tooth will feel better and look better than ever before.
