Bridges, and Crowns, and Bonds!
Restorative dentistry encompasses bridges, crowns and bonds; all procedures that help restore a missing tooth or teeth. If you are unhappy with your smile, read on for more information on these procedures or visit our website for additional services.
A bridge is often used when more than one tooth is missing. A dental implant is placed, if necessary, to hold the bridgework in place. Artificial teeth are then used to replace the absent ones. Your Brookline dentist examines your teeth to determine what oral treatment plan is best for your situation. If the abutting teeth are in good condition, there may be no need for a dental implant and a bridge will suffice utilizing your own teeth as anchors to the prosthesis.
If you have a cracked tooth, a crown is an easy way to restore it. A crown is made to look like your real tooth. It is fitted using a dental implant post to hold it in place. Maintaining a crown is really no different than your normal dental hygiene routine. Proper flossing and brushing will keep your gums and teeth in great shape. Our Brookline dentist team offers convenience and excellence. Maintain your dental health and receive restorative care all in one place.
Bonds are used for simple restoration work of your smile. A chipped tooth or a gap between your teeth may only need a bit of specially designed dental resin in order to restore your smile. The resin is matched to your existing enamel. The procedure is quick, leaving your smile looking great.
