Although permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime, it's easy to let them go. Not brushing is one way to surrender your teeth to tooth decay, skipping regular dental check-ups is another. The truth is there are several things that can make the health of your teeth go wrong - which is why a dental crown is such important dental treatment.
Crowns are one of the most effective solutions for restoring a tooth’s shape, size, and strength, or to improve your appearance. If you want a smile that’s your crowning glory, you may need a dental crown to cover a tooth and help restore it to its original beauty. A crown can make your tooth stronger too.
Dental crowns can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or to restore one that is already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped or to cover a dental implant.
If a dental crown is a right treatment for you, we will discuss it together and answer all your questions. Webster Dental’s primary concern, like yours, is to help you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright.
Straight teeth and a winning smile may no longer need to come with a mouthful of wire braces. Invisible braces offer an aesthetic, barely visible alternative to conventional wire braces. While invisible braces may not work for certain tooth misalignment cases or complex bite problems, they can be used to treat overbites, crooked teeth, and crowded or widely spaced teeth.
Because invisible braces are the “clear way” to a winning smile, Webster Dental uses an express aligner system called Simpli5. It is a fast, effective, and easy solution to minor to moderate anterior misalignments. The Simpli5 invisible braces are programmed with an incremental correction to move your teeth to their desired position in a short amount of time.
Invisible braces are designed for adults and older teenagers and are not recommended when baby teeth remain. Children and younger teenagers faced with orthodontic problems will require traditional metal braces with brackets/wires on the front of the teeth. However, only your dentist or orthodontist can determine if you are a candidate for invisible braces.
Dental implants can replace your problematic tooth or several teeth. Titanium implants fitting securely and look like natural teeth. You don’t have to live with an embarrassing space between your teeth. There are dental procedures available to replace your missing tooth or teeth. Good news because a missing tooth doesn’t just leave a hole in your smile; it may also affect the way you speak and chew your food. And if your tooth isn’t replaced, the teeth around it begin to move. Shifting teeth create new gaps between your teeth that plaque and tartar can hide in – which can lead to tooth decay.
Dental implants are a modern option for replacing missing teeth. Instead of setting on your gums like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like with a dental bridge, your replacement teeth are surgically anchored into your jawbone. Your new implant looks and feels like a natural tooth and lets you chew and talk like you did when your original tooth was still with you. When properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular visits to your dentist are still recommended.
