There are several solutions to restoring the way that your teeth appear which are not only cosmetic, but can give you more functionality when chewing. Two of these solutions include dental bridges and dental crowns.
If you have a tooth missing as a result of disease, trauma or an extraction, you can actually restore that tooth without doing an implant. Dental bridges are an excellent option, made from porcelain, affixed to the remaining teeth on either side of where the tooth once was. This is very similar to getting a crown for an individual to, but allows you to effectively restore more than one tooth if necessary.
If you have a that has been significantly damaged, if you are able to keep the tooth, it is better to restore its appearance with a crown. It will provide protection for your tooth, and will look consistent in appearance and coloration of your existing teeth once done. They are the perfect choice for improving your smile, and can also help with chewing or speech impediments. It will take a couple of appointments to complete the process, but the end result will be the full restoration of the tooth or teeth that have been damaged.
