Crowns and Inlays
If you have fillings, broken, or decaying teeth, there are several treatments Dr. Shifman may recommend. Dental crowns are simple procedures that place a tooth-shaped "cap" over a misshapen, broken, or decayed tooth to restore its strength and appearance, and crowns can be made of a variety of materials including metals, ceramic, and porcelain. A crown is one of the most common dental procedures performed today and with proper care, the benefits can last a lifetime. An inlay is a smaller version of a crown, only covering a portion of a tooth.
You may have heard of a bridge, a fixed prosthetic device that is used to replace your missing natural teeth. These days, bridges are more durable, stronger, and can be securely fit to your mouth. While bridges help you have a beautiful smile, Dr. Shifman may recommend them to stabilize your bite, prevent gum disease, and keep your remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
