How Dental Crowns Can Help Restore Your Confidence
For some patients, crowns and bridges are the only way to counteract neglect and dental disease. Dental crowns are a straightforward and effective technique that fills in spaces and gaps where there are missing teeth. Crowns usually work in coordination with bridges to close unsightly spots where your teeth have fallen out. Dr. Suher & Associates provides crowns and bridges to Monroeville, PA patients, enabling them to smile brightly and warmly once again. Dr. Suher & Associates understands the problems associated with missing teeth and how to remedy them. If you decide to schedule an appointment with our practice, one of our talented practitioners can go over the details of the procedure and examine your teeth to find out whether crowns and bridges are the right choices for you.
Invest in Partial Dentures or Dental Crowns Today
Dr. Suher & Associates also offers partial dentures, a procedure that is designed to work around existing, healthy teeth. Partial dentures improve chewing capabilities, make it easier to speak, and help to restore the confidence of our patients. They’re made from durable materials, including a combination of acrylic, metal, and gum-colored claps for a realistic appearance. If partial dentures won’t work for your unique needs, then our practice is more than capable of using crowns to restore your smile. Typically made of porcelain, dental crowns fit over damaged teeth and strengthen them in the process. Dentists choose porcelain due to its strength and realistic, aesthetically-pleasing appearance. The process itself is quick and painless, meaning you’ll be able to experience the immediate satisfaction other methods – like implants – can’t offer.
Bridges Help Keep Your Teeth from Becoming Unstable
In addition to crowns, Dr. Suher & Associates uses bridges to restore teeth. Bridges act quite literally as a “bridge” between spaces and gaps in your smile. They’re most commonly used along with crowns to help stabilize the crown. They’re perfect if a patient has multiple, not only one, missing teeth. The reason is a single crown won’t be enough to rectify the issue. The teeth in your mouth help stabilize one another and prevent them from drifting or shifting. When you’re missing multiple teeth, they have nothing to hold themselves in place. Missing teeth create vulnerabilities in your smile, and both crowns and bridges restore stability to your jawline and improve the look of your smile at the same time. So, don’t wait; the situation can grow more severe quickly. If you’ve been noticing soreness, pain, or anything else making your teeth and mouth uncomfortable, don’t hesitate to give us a call and schedule an appointment.
