When a tooth is significantly weakened by tooth decay, tooth breakage or by a traumatic bite pattern, it can often be effectively reinforced against breakage by the placement of a crown. Crowns are caps that are customized to your tooth using materials that are much stronger than a regular dental filling material and offer greater reinforcement for a tooth.
Bridges are usually used to fill a gap/space above the gums where a tooth is missing. A bridge involves placing a crown on one or two of the teeth around the missing tooth, and attaching a
to those surrounding crowns to replace the missing tooth. Alternatively, you can look at getting an implant or a partial denture to replace this space.In other cases,
orthodontics or braces may be used to move adjacent teeth into the gap/space to close the gap.
A veneer is a porcelain facing that can be placed on the front of a tooth to improve the appearance of the tooth.
