Treatment Choices

  • Crowns: Crowns are an excellent solution for broken or damaged teeth. Teeth with large fillings are also strong candidates for crowns. They restore chewing efficiency and prevent further decay. Crowns are available in different materials, including base metal, gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all porcelain, zirconia and layered zirconia.
  • Bridges: A bridge uses a pontic, an artificial tooth, to bridge the gap left by a missing tooth. The bridge is usually supported by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the pontic. There are several types of bridges: traditional fixed bridge, resin bonded bridge and cantilever bridge. Choosing the type of bridge depends on the location of the missing tooth. Tooth loss, significant decay, and fractures can dramatically affect your appearance and make you look older. Today‚Äôs crowns and bridges are more beautiful than ever before. Dr. Masillamoni can restore any part of a tooth or replace missing teeth with natural-looking crowns or bridges that will last for many years. When a tooth is missing, adjoining teeth tend to shift into the available space. The opposing tooth will also begin to grow up or down into that space as well. These movements will cause significant bite problems and create an unflattering appearance. Having a bridge, which replaces one or more natural teeth, will prevent this occurrence and keep your smile functional and beautiful for a lifetime.
