Replacing Teeth and Restoring Smiles
Teeth are made to last; they’re protected by a layer of enamel, the strongest substance in your body. However, even the best protection can sometimes fail, and you may eventually find yourself with a tooth that needs to be repaired or even replaced altogether. In this situation, you simply need to get in touch with Dr. Albert as soon as you can so he can begin the process of designing a dental crown or bridge that will bring your smile back to its full strength.

Crowns are commonly placed if a tooth has been weakened by decay or damaged in an accident. They cover the entire upper portion and prevent it from falling apart; they can also provide essential protection from further infection. Depending on your own needs and preferences, a crown might be made out of many different materials. Metal crowns remain highly reliable, but a ceramic crown is similarly durable and can be customized to match your natural teeth’s color.
No matter which tooth has been lost, you need to fill in the gap as soon as you can in order to prevent dental drift that could throw off the overall alignment of your bite. One solution is to literally “bridge” the empty space with a pair of dental crowns and a specific number of false teeth known as pontics. The crowns will use natural teeth as support while the pontics serve as your new teeth.
