Tooth restorations are the various ways your dentist can replace missing teeth or repair missing parts of the tooth structure. Tooth structure can be missing due to decay, deterioration of a previously placed restoration, or fracture of a tooth.
Dental crowns are designed to completely encase the surface of teeth to restore teeth’s shape and size. When in place, dental crowns (which are often made of tooth-colored porcelain or composite resin) can add strength and beauty to imperfect teeth. Dental crowns can be used to protect teeth that have recently received root canal therapy and they can also be used to complete a dental implant. If you are interested in learning more about the many benefits of tooth-colored dental crowns and cosmetic dentistry, please call or visit Wellpoint Dental in Meridian today.
At Wellpoint Dental in Meridian, we offer several treatments to those who are missing one or more of their natural teeth. One of these options, the dental bridge, uses the two teeth adjacent to the missing tooth (or teeth) to anchor an artificial tooth. Bridges are an aesthetically pleasing option that will restore function and health to your smile. They can even be used as part of a dental implant for the most secure and stable results possible. To learn more about fixed bridges and cosmetic dentistry, we invite you to call or visit our office soon.
