Not every tooth can be restored with a filling. Sometimes a dental crown is needed to correct more extensive damage. We know how important appearances are when it comes to your smile, which is why we go out of our way to make our crowns out of lifelike materials that blend in seamlessly with your other teeth. At EMA Dental of Westfield, we may recommend a dental crown in a variety of situations, such as when you need to restore the shape and size of the tooth, or if it needs to be strengthened so that you can keep using it to bite and chew all of your favorite foods.
A dental bridge is a traditional solution for patients who have lost a single tooth or multiple consecutive teeth. A number of replacement teeth called pontics are suspended between a pair of dental crowns. Said crowns are anchored to the teeth adjacent to the space in your smile so that the pontics can fill in the gap. Dental bridges are permanently fixed in place; you won’t be able to take them out on your own.
When your tooth has been damaged by decay, a filling can be used to repair any cavities that have formed. Our practice uses tooth-colored fillings (sometimes called composite fillings) which are not only more lifelike than silver amalgam fillings but are also better for your oral health. The composite resin bonds directly with the tooth enamel, so it reduces the amount of dental structure that needs to be removed in order to place it. The material will be color-matched to the rest of your smile so that most people don’t even realize it’s there. If you have an older amalgam filling, you might consider having it replaced with a more lifelike composite one in the near future.
A full denture lets you replace all of the missing teeth in one or both arches. It sits on your gums and is held in place with natural suction. When designed by an expert, dentures let you enjoy a wide variety of foods, make it easier to speak clearly, and can improve your confidence thanks to their natural appearance.
