Crowns are designed to restore teeth that are damaged by decay or have cracks. The design fits over a tooth to protect it from further damage, improve the appearance and restore the strength of your tooth. They can also be used to replace metal fillings. Crowns are necessary to hold the tooth together when fillings are unable to fix the tooth structure.
Missing teeth can impair speech and lower self-esteem due to appearance. Other than crowns, you can also opt for a bridge to help restore your smile. A bridge is made up of several crowns connected together. Bridges helps to reduce the stress in your bite and maintain the shape of your jaw, by replacing missing teeth with artificial ones.
