Restorative dentistry is the ideal solution to return your smile to its best health and appearance. If your smile is suffering from teeth that are worn down, broken, or missing altogether, dental crowns or bridges could be right for you.
Sometimes a tooth becomes too damaged for a simple filling to fix. Dental crowns can repair teeth that are broken, chipped, or worn down.
Dr. Hwang will remove the infected or damaged portion of the tooth. He will ensure there is room for the crown and take the measurements of the tooth. These measurements will be used to create a dental crown that fits your tooth seamlessly.
A dental crown will give you the proper bite force and pattern that you’re used to. A crown will also give the tooth a full and attractive appearance. Our tooth-colored crowns look just like beautiful natural teeth.
A dental bridge may be the perfect solution for the gap in your smile. If you are missing a tooth or teeth, or need to have an extraction, a dental bridge can restore your complete smile.
Why is it necessary to fill in the space created by a missing tooth? If a tooth is not replaced, the remaining teeth may shift, becoming crooked and ruining the bite. When you use a dental bridge, your teeth will remain in their ideal positions.
A dental bridge is two crowns which are bridged together by a replacement tooth. The crowns are placed on the teeth on both sides of the gap. These crowns will strengthen the abutment teeth while holding your appealing replacement teeth in place.
