We all dream of having teeth that are not susceptible to cracking, decay, and breaking. However, all of these issues are normal and natural occurrences that most people experience at some point in their life. You can prevent some issues with lifestyle changes and good dental care. For instance, avoiding hard candy or wearing mouthguards while playing sports can help prevent decay and breaking.
When you do run into issues such as cracked or damaged teeth, contact the office of Dr. Kishore for dental crowns or bridges in Winchester, Virginia.
During your dental exam, Dr. Kishore will look for signs of tooth decay, chipped teeth, or other damage. When he notices issues that expose your tooth, and can’t be restored with a filling or bonding, he may recommend that we place a dental crown.
Cracked and damaged teeth can expose your tooth’s “pulp”, which is the sensitive tissue and other material that fill a tooth. Exposed dental pulp makes it painful to chew food, gives you increased sensitivity to hot and cold, and can develop into an infection. In order to help prevent that, dental crowns are placed to protect your tooth and restore your smile’s appearance.
Bridges are dental restorations used to replace missing teeth by using adjacent teeth as anchors. The bridge is made of two dental crowns, attached to either side of the space from the missing tooth/teeth, and a false tooth/teeth that fills the space created by your missing teeth.
Dental bridges look like your natural teeth, and correct the issues created by missing teeth such as structural issues, teeth growing improperly, and the cosmetic problems.
