Dental Crowns, Bridges & Dentures
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, Dr. Jay Gangwani and his Milton dental team can use porcelain crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. Dental crowns are placed on the teeth that have had extensive fillings; have been treated with a root canal; have exhibited signs of fracture; or have an increased risk of fractures.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns
- Replace missing teeth when utilized with dental bridges
- Offer support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Look completely natural
- Fix “smile” and functional chewing problems
All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn’t necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. A dental bridge is a type of dental component used to restore or permanently replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are considered cosmetic but also have a good effect on the prevention of future dental problems. People with missing teeth have a higher risk of developing tooth decay, periodontal disease, and a temporomandibular joint disorders.
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever, especially if you are considering implant supported dentures. There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your Milton dentist, Dr. Jay Gangwani, will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved..
