Repair and Strengthen Damaged Teeth
Full porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns or "caps" are a great way to repair and strengthen your badly damaged teeth.
Like veneers, crowns dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. Unlike veneers, they cover the entire surface area of the tooth. This helps to prevent weaker teeth from cracking or breaking.
By strengthening weak teeth, crowns can reduce or eliminate any pain, sensitivity, and chewing and speaking difficulties. Crowns are commonly used to keep errant fillings in place as well. If you would like to mask the imperfections in your teeth for a pleasing, attractive smile, crowns may be the perfect solution.
Replace a Missing Tooth With an Implant
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are permanently placed into your jaw. Dr. Svang
starts by placing an implant into your bone; he then fixes an artificial tooth or a bridge to the implant. This allows you to fully regain the feel and functionality of your missing tooth.
Implants can also be used to support a full set of dentures, which makes chewing and speaking significantly easier.
Bridge the Gap Between Teeth
If you have a gap in your smile due to a missing tooth, a porcelain bridge can help. Porcelain bridges consist of an artificial tooth and two porcelain crowns. The crowns attach to the natural teeth on either side of the gap.
Your bridge is completely customized to your mouth so that it fits comfortably and snugly. It is also fixed in place so it cannot fall out or be removed by hand. Porcelain bridges offer a remarkably natural looking, extremely strong solution which allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Fillings That Perfectly Blend in With Your Smile
Most people believe that tooth-colored fillings offer an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional silver and amalgam fillings. Thanks to advancements in technology, fillings are stronger and more durable than their metallic counterparts, and can perfectly match the color of your tooth.
Small fillings may last a lifetime without ever requiring repairs, and larger fillings should last for years with appropriate care. Tooth-colored fillings will also feel and function more like natural teeth than metallic fillings. This allows you to eat, speak, and smile with comfort and confidence!
