There are many proven metal free materials available when considering crowns or bridges. Composite or ceramic restorations look natural because shades are selected to match the color of your teeth. These restorations are kind to your opposing teeth, wear more like natural enamel, and can regain most of your tooth's original strength. If you are missing teeth, a conservative fiber reinforced bridge may be used to replace them. This is a completely biocompatible, non-allergenic and metal-free alternative.
Composite resins are tooth-colored, plastic materials (made of glass and resin) that are used both as fillings and to repair defects in the teeth. Because they are tooth-colored, it is difficult to distinguish them from natural teeth.
Periodontal disease affects the gum tissue and bone that supports the teeth. If oral hygiene is neglected and regular dental cleanings are not scheduled then periodontal disease will develop. If detected early enough a nonsurgical approach can be implemented to prevent the disease from progressing and eventually causing tooth loss.
Endodontics, also known as root canal therapy, is performed when the nerves within the tooth have become irreversibly damaged due to decay or injury.
Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only option when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and most people find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
