Damaged teeth need extra care and proper repair. An ideal restoration is one that does not compromise on the function or the aesthetics of your smile. At the office of Greenwich Smiles, we understand how missing and damaged teeth can affect your lifestyle and your health.
We offer state-of-the-art crowns and bridges made with porcelain to help you restore your smile. Porcelain is a great choice of material for making custom crowns and bridges. It can be closely matched with the natural color of your teeth and has a high gloss that mimics the shine of a real tooth.
Crowns are used to protect, repair, and replace a single tooth. Sometimes, a tooth suffers trauma, deep dental decay, has a very large filling, or has undergone treatment for a root canal infection. In such cases, the tooth becomes weak and is at an increased risk of fracture and breakage.
A crown covers the tooth, providing strength and protection. Crowns can also be used as replacement teeth when placed over a dental implant. Crowns are custom-made according to the shape, size, and color of the tooth that they will protect or replace.
Dental bridges are used to fill in the space created by more than one missing tooth in a row. As with crowns, bridges are also custom-made according to the shape, size, color, and position of the gap that they would fill.
Using a bridge to replace missing teeth not only enables an individual to eat, speak, and chew with ease, but also helps in avoiding a number of orthodontic problems and bite issues. Without treatment, the remaining natural teeth move into the empty space created by lost teeth, impacting the patient's oral health.
