Tooth Restoration

There are many choices available today for tooth restoration. Simple restoration involves filling a prepared tooth with a tooth-colored composite material, gold or silver amalgam. More customized restoration includes crowns, bridges and implants.

Crowns & Bridges:

Crowns are also known as “caps” and are a covering that is placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth. A crown is used to strengthen and restore the tooth.

  • A bridge is a customized device that is anchored to the adjacent teeth by crowns.
  • Benefits of Crown & Bridge Restoration:
  • Maintains and restores the natural bite
  • Prevents shifting and tilting of neighboring teeth
  • Helps to discourage dental decay and periodontal disease
  • Restores your smile, speech and normal chewing function.
