A crown is a fixed restoration prosthetic which can be made out of metal or porcelain which fits over a tooth in order to repair and protect it.
This is usually a procedure that is done in the case of a tooth becoming damaged or weakened. There are a number of uses that crowns can offer, including the following:
- Repair broken teeth
- Protect teeth weakened by decay
- Improve any discolouration of teeth
- Hold a bridge or denture in place.
Why Choose Crowns As An Option For My Smile?
There are many reasons why crowns can be extremely beneficial both for cosmetic dental treatments and improving your overall dental health.
Not only can a crown strengthen a damaged tooth, it can also be an ideal way to improve its shape, alignment or colour.
The majority of people have had at least one filling in their life. A filling is used as a way to repair damage to the teeth caused by decay and is an effective treatment for restoring normal function and shape to an otherwise damaged tooth.
There are many types of fillings and they all provide a number of benefits, including:
- Protecting teeth from further damage
- Preventing tooth loss
- Making it easier to clean your teeth
- Reducing bacteria in the mouth
Why Choose Fillings As An Option For My Smile?
Having a filling is one of the most ubiquitous dental treatments available, and not without good reason.
When a filling is fitted, decayed tooth material is firstly cleaned away and then the cavity is filled, most commonly with a silver amalgam (although other options including gold, porcelain and white filling are also available).
Fillings are not only great for restoring shape to your teeth but also for preventing further decay from occurring.
