With options like dental crowns and bridges, your Boston dentist can take your smile from being so-so to simply beautiful. Riley Dental Associates, LLC, in Boston, MA, offers a full range of dental services, including dental crowns and bridges. Read on to learn about the benefits of dental crowns and bridges.
Benefits of Crowns
Cosmetic– Dental crowns can improve the look of cracked, misshapen, broken or discolored teeth. Crowns strengthen the teeth and can be used to improve their appearance, shape or alignment.
Protection– When used to cover damaged or weakened teeth, dental crowns serve to protect the teeth from further decay and damage. Dental crowns are used to entirely cover damaged and weakened teeth.
Natural-looking– Riley Dental Associates, LLC offers natural-looking dental crowns. Porcelain dental crowns resemble the look of your natural teeth because they mimic the translucency and luster of your own teeth.
Benefits of Bridges
Tooth Replacement- Dental bridges are a viable option for people who have lost more than one tooth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on the sides of the gap and one or more prosthetic teeth in between.
Prevent Shifting- Spaces left by lost teeth may cause your existing teeth to shift, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by lost teeth can also lead to TMJ disorder and gum disease. Fixed dental bridges prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting.
Cosmetic- Fixed dental bridges look great and match the natural teeth exceptionally well. With fixed dental bridges, not only can you fill the gaps in your smile, you can improve the color and shape of the teeth that you are crowning.
