With options like crowns and bridges, your dentist can take your smile from being so-so to simply beautiful. Dr. Edward Pergiovanni and restorative dentistryDr. Mary Pergiovanni at Family Dental Care in Rocky Hill, CT, offer high-quality dental crowns and bridges to their patients. Read on to learn about the benefits of crowns and bridges.

Benefits of Crowns

 Crowns strengthen weakened and damaged teeth and can be used to improve their appearance, shape or alignment. Dental crowns, which can be made from porcelain or composite resin fused to metal, can improve the appearance of misshapen, broken, cracked or discolored teeth.

Protect Teeth– Dental crowns are tough like natural tooth structure. Teeth that have been weakened can be saved by covering them with a dental crown. When teeth are severely damaged by a decay, an infection or trauma, the teeth become weaker. This leaves them prone to further damage unless your dentist does something to preserve them.

A Natural Look– Rocky Hill dentists offer natural-looking dental crowns. Porcelain dental crowns resemble the look of your natural teeth because they mimic the luster of your own teeth. Ceramic or porcelain dental crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.

Benefits of Bridges

Replace Teeth– If you have lost one or more teeth, your dentist can restore your smile with a fixed dental bridge. A fixed bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on the sides of the gap and one or more artificial teeth in between. Fixed dental bridges can be supported by your own teeth, dental implants or a combination of teeth and implants.

Prevent Shifting– Once a tooth is lost, the adjacent teeth begin to shift at an accelerated rate. This causes a potential collapse of bite support. A fixed dental bridge can help prevent the remaining teeth from moving out of place. When dental bridges fill in the gaps in your smile, teeth are supported on all sides and have no place to shift.

Good looks– With a fixed dental bridge, not only will you fill the gaps in your smile, you will also improve the shape and shade of the teeth that you are crowning. Porcelain dental bridges look great and match the natural teeth well. With a dental bridge, you will enjoy the confidence of having a beautiful smile.
