What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a piece made of porcelain that covers your tooth. Dental crowns are used to restore or protect your tooth from further decay. A porcelain crown can be a good option for weakening teeth due to trauma or decay. Crowns are great for fixing one tooth. A dental crown does not replace your tooth. It fits over your dental implant or natural tooth like a cap. While it may cover what is visible of your tooth, your original tooth will remain within the cap. Our Palm Beach Gardens dentist will ensure that your crown is perfectly fitted so that you can smile and continue to chew without any worries.
What is a Dental Implant?
Implants can replace the roots of a tooth or replace missing teeth. Dental implants are shaped like cylinders made from a biocompatible titanium alloy. To provide strong support for your new teeth, our dentist can place a dental implant in your jawbone. Dental crowns and dental implants are often combined. A crown is placed on top of the implant to restore the appearance and function of a tooth. Dental implants can take several months. This option is not for everyone. Make sure you are available to attend all appointments.
What is a Dental Bridge?
We may recommend a dental bridge if you have one missing tooth and it has healthy teeth or implants. Dental bridges are a way to fill in gaps between your teeth. They connect a piece of dental bridge that holds onto your healthy teeth. We will need to trim your side teeth slightly so that we can fit the bridge. This will give your mouth a natural appearance. A bridge is a good option if you don’t want to have a dental implant.
What are dentures?
You’re likely familiar with dentures, whether you’ve seen them in person or know someone who has. Dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. Dentures are often used to replace teeth that have become damaged or discolored due to gum disease, tooth decay, or trauma. You must brush and floss your natural teeth regularly, just like natural teeth. Not all dentures can replace your entire smile. Partial dentures can be used to replace half or all of your teeth in our Palm Beach Gardens dental office. Dentures might be the right option for you if you are missing a lot of teeth or most of them. If you have any questions from a Dentist Palm Beach Gardens FL call Habashy Dental today. 561-427-7711
