Porcelain crowns and bridges play a key role in keeping your mouth functioning properly. Crowns are used to protect weak teeth from breaking down, cover dental implants or to improve your smile. Dental bridges are used to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns in Willingboro are often used when the damage to a tooth is extensive. A crown will cover and improve the strength of a week tooth, and can also be used for the following reasons:
- To strengthen a fractured or broken tooth
- To enhance a tooth that is discolored or treated by a root canal
- To hold a dental bridge in place
- To cover a dental implant
- To improve the shape, size or color of teeth
While conventional dental crowns in Willingboro have been used to strengthen teeth for decades with great success, they haven’t always been able to improve appearance due to the dark metals used to fabricate the crowns. With modern advancements in dentistry, and an increasingly high demand for esthetics from patients, crowns made of porcelain have emerged as a popular alternative to those unsightly metal crowns. At Contemporary Dental Associates in Willingboro, Dr. Adelstein will work with you to provide the best treatment with dental crowns.
What are Dental Bridges?
