Teeth darken naturally over time and day-to-day habits such as drinking coffee, tea, or smoking can lead to faster staining.
Crowns and Bridges
For any broken, heavily filled, or cracked teeth our office can typically apply a crown over the remaining portion of your tooth and restore it to its original size and shape. This treatment is also recommended to those who have root canal treatment because the tooth that is left behind will becoming brittle and is more likely to fracture. Not only do crowns restore the appearance of your teeth, they also strengthen and protect your actual tooth that is remaining.
Bridges are used to replace any missing teeth. These non-removable bridges are important because not only do they restore teeth that are missing, but they also return normal function to your teeth. A bridge consists of crowns of teeth joined together to close the gap between the surrounding healthy teeth. The teeth that surround a bridge are also affected because they are able to stay in place and not shift. This helps maintain both the structure of your face and jaw in the future.
Both crowns and bridges are important to your overall dental health if you have any broken or missing teeth. It is very important to see Dr. Goodarzi as soon as possible to fix these problems before they lead to more costly repairs or diminished oral health.
