Your teeth contain the hardest substance in the body – enamel. In fact, enamel is as hard as steel. Despite this, your teeth can suffer from damage.
Thankfully, modern dentistry has afforded ways to restore and improve your teeth.
At True Dental Care Preston, we have multiple restorative dentistry options for your dental needs.
Our restorative devices are made of durable materials to ensure optimum performance. Talk to your True Dental Care Preston dentist today!
Take a look at some of our restorative dentistry options.
A dental implant is a restorative dentistry option that involves the replacement of a missing tooth through insertion of a titanium or metal post into the jawbone. The dental implant has three parts:
Dental implant – The titanium post inserted into the jawbone to serve as the root of the implant.
Abutment – Connects the dental implant to the replacement tooth.
Dental crown – Tooth-coloured replacement tooth.
Once inserted, the dental implants become a permanent solution to missing teeth.
Crowns and bridges
Dental crowns are fixed restorative devices. They restore the beauty and function of a damaged tooth by capping it. A dental bridge is a fixed restorative device taking the place of multiple missing teeth.
A set of false teeth “bridges” one natural tooth to another by filling the gap in between. The bridge is supported by a dental crown capped over a natural tooth or with a dental implant.
With proper care and good oral hygiene, dental crowns and bridges can last a long time.
Dentures are a removable tooth replacement option. There are composed of false teeth attached to a plastic called acrylic, or to metal.
Dentures are known for their many benefits such as:
- Improved bite and chewing capacity
- Reduced speech problems
- Support of your face, giving it a fuller look
- Protects remaining teeth from further stress by balancing pressure in the mouth (for partial dentures)
- Can be removed for proper cleaning
- Sturdy and with proper care, can last a long time
