Tooth-colored fillings, not silver fillings, are now the standard of care for repairing decayed teeth. They require less removal of good tooth structure than silver fillings, actually bond to the tooth and because of this fact can help prevent recurrent decay at the margins of the tooth and the filling. They also look 100% better than silver fillings.
Why is it important to replace a missing tooth? It not only improves the look of your smile, but also contributes to better dental health. Each tooth has its own important role. The support that your teeth provide for each other is compromised when one is missing. Before long, evidence of breakdown is noticed in the remaining teeth, the jaw joint, and/or the gums. The use of a bridge can prevent these problems. Bridges are fixed, not removable, and are anchored to the teeth adjacent to the space or spaces to be restored.
Veneers & Lumineers
Veneers and Lumineers are thin “covers” or “fronts” made from, usually, porcelain. They can be used to brighten, lengthen or vastly improve the look of stained, misshapen teeth or even teeth that are mildly out of position. They are permanent, meaning that with care they can last 10-20+ years.
Your teeth are composed of two main parts. The crown is the part visible above the gum. The root is the part below the gum that holds your tooth firmly in your jawbone. If the crown of your tooth becomes weakened by decay or fractures, or if it is stained or uneven, it can be restored and strengthened by an artificial crown. If you have any questions about crowns and how they are a benefit to you, speak with Dr. Turnage today!
