Having a tooth restored has become much easier and more mainstream in recent years than it has been in the past. Many people choose to repair broken and cracked teeth to make the outward appearance more attractive. The options for tooth restoration are expansive and depending on what needs to be done, the procedures can be noninvasive. Some of the treatments that can be done to restore teeth are the following:
Dental Crowns: This is a procedure that will be used to cover a tooth that has severe decay or a cavity that needs to be filled. The tooth will be buffed down to allow a porcelain crown to be attached and cemented to the remaining tooth.
Dental Bridges: This is a procedure that will restore an area of the mouth that is missing a tooth all together. The space will be prepped along with the two teeth that are anchoring the space where a crown will be placed. The two anchoring teeth will have the middle porcelain tooth attached to it to fill the gap.
Dental Veneers: If you are unhappy with the look, shape or color of your teeth, an option that has become much more mainstream is to have porcelain veneers. The veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is shaped to mimic the new look of your teeth. The underlying teeth are buffed down to allow the new veneer to be added with a cement and permanently affixed to the tooth.
