How Crowns And Bridges Help Restore Your Smile
Your family dentists in Annapolis, MD, can rebuild your smile with crowns and bridges
Teeth are strong, but they can get damaged. Chewing on hard objects, grinding your teeth at night, and accumulating every day wear-and-tear are just a few of the issues that can damage your smile. You can also lose teeth due to dental trauma, severe decay, and other causes. This can result in you losing your whole, beautiful smile.
Luckily, you can restore your smile with dental crowns and bridges! Dr. John P. Ruland and Dr. Michael P. Ruland at Ruland Family Dentistry in Annapolis, MD, offer a wide range of dental services including crowns and bridges, to rebuild your smile.
More about Crowns and Bridges
Crowns can restore individual teeth that have been damaged or have lost a large amount of tooth structure. Crown materials are strong and natural-looking, giving you the strength you need along with the aesthetic beauty that you want.
Porcelain is one of the most common crown materials. It is light-reflective and closely resembles natural tooth structure. Full porcelain crowns are so lifelike that once they are placed, they are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They are an excellent choice for front teeth or teeth that are visible when you smile.
Another common choice is a combination of porcelain and metal underlay, known as a PFM crown. The porcelain gives you a great aesthetic appearance, and the metal gives you superb strength. These crowns are the perfect choice for back teeth, which need increased strength for chewing.
If you are missing multiple teeth, dental bridges can give you back a complete, beautiful smile. Bridges contain natural-looking prosthetic teeth which are held in place by being cemented to the adjacent teeth. Dental bridges give you back your full smile, increasing your ability to chew food and helping digestion.
