As we age, our teeth loses its youthful structure, due to daily wear and tear. Teeth grinding, improper bites, fillings and tooth decay are also contributing factors in the erosion, breakage and cracking of your teeth. In cases where a tooth had been damaged but the root still remains intact, you will be advised to consider dental crowns, as these cover the tooth and protects the tooth the same way the enamel does.
A dental bridge is a false tooth that is placed over the gap of a missing tooth. Each dental bridge is custom made to fill the gap left by a missing tooth. However, if the dental bridge is not able to fit the gap properly, the surrounding teeth will drift out of position. Furthermore, improper bridges can cause your teeth and gums to develop tooth decay and gum disease.
