Cosmetic Dentistry has a variety of applications.. Perhaps a person has a hard time chewing, isn’t happy with their smile or has missing or misaligned teeth that are interfering with normal function of the mouth or are visually unappealing. Whatever the exact reason, cosmetic dentistry including dental crowns and dental bridges could be the answer.
The team at Westerville Smiles is dedicated to providing a friendly, personalized care to better the lives of their patients. All questions are answered and concerns addressed in order for the patient to be able to make an informed decision about their oral needs.
Dental crowns are used to fix an extremely weakened tooth or teeth that have little original structure remaining. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that encases the damaged tooth or teeth up to the gumline. Crowns restore the function, size and shape of the natural teeth while maintaining an attractive appearance. They are made of porcelain and are matched to the color and shape of the surrounding teeth. Each crown or crowns are custom made to fit the natural contour of the mouth and result in a natural-looking smile.
Dental bridges are used for two or more missing teeth, effectively, they “bridge” the gap between the remaining teeth. A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that is anchored in place through the use of dental crowns that are custom made to fit into position. The dental crowns hold the artificial teeth in place ensuring a beautiful smile. Dental bridges are designed to provide functionality, health and a great smile for many years.
