How dental crowns and bridges from Miamisburg will help your smilerestorative dentistry

You may be suffering from an unsightly smile due to broken or missing teeth. If so, your self-esteem and self-confidence are probably suffering too! It’s time to change all that by discovering dental crowns and bridgework. Your dentists at Miamisburg Family Dental in Miamisburg, OH want to share how beautiful crown and bridgework can restore your smile.

Modern dental crowns and bridges don’t just restore the functionality of your smile, making it possible to chew and enjoy the foods you love. They can also make your smile more beautiful, giving you more self-confidence and pride.

Dental crowns cover the entire visible surfaces of teeth, protecting them like a suit of armor against severe biting forces and trauma. They literally hold your teeth together. If you choose large fillings instead of crowns, large fillings can actually weaken teeth, forcing them apart by creating a wedge between different sections of your teeth. When you chew, you may fracture the filling and your tooth at the same time.

If you need a crown, you can choose from a variety of materials, depending on your preferences:

  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal; this crown is both strong and beautiful
  • Full porcelain; this is the most natural-looking crown material

If you suffer from an incomplete smile due to missing teeth, dental bridges are an excellent option to restore your ability to chew, and give you a beautiful, complete smile. Whether you are missing a single tooth or many teeth, dental bridges can fill in the gaps.

Unlike removable partials, dental bridges are firmly cemented in place so they won’t move around. They are also convenient because you never have to take them out. Dental bridges provide the natural look you need and the beauty you deserve.

You don’t have to hide your smile! Now you can restore your smile with dental crowns and bridgework. Don’t let a damaged or incomplete smile impact your self-esteem.
