Having a healthy, bright smile gives everyone a boost of confidence. If a tooth has been fractured, excessively worn, affected by past fillings that have failed, or compromised by periodontal disease, porcelain crowns can give it new life.
Depending on your need, Dr. Hekmat may also recommend the placement of a bridge. Designed to replace missing teeth and support surrounding teeth, a bridge is a grouping of interconnected crowns. Held in place by two crowns, a bridge can reduce the risk of gum disease while replacing your natural teeth in the most natural looking way. Bridges can also help correct bite issues and even improve speech.
Reasons to consider crowns include:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Tooth that has had a root canal
