Materials Used to Make Dental Restorations
Patients also have options for what materials are used to fabricate their crowns or bridges. Common materials include metals like silver or gold or porcelain. Metals are ideal for budget-conscious patients or for replacing teeth at the back of the mouth while porcelain is ideal for those who want a very natural looking dental restoration. Another popular option is for crowns or bridges to be made of a combination of metal and porcelain where porcelain serves as a natural looking complement to one’s smile without sacrificing the durability of metal.
Our goal is to help our patients achieve optimal oral health even after a dental injury or the onset of common dental disease which is why Dental Depot is proud to offer high quality, custom dental restorations like dental crowns and bridges. Through these restorations, we can help you maintain proper oral function and even restore one’s appearance.you
Why Dental Restorations Are Necessary
Dental restorations are necessary for protecting oral health and re-establishing proper oral function. If teeth are affected by a dental injury or tooth decay, they can many times be treated with a simple restoration to prevent further deterioration of tooth structure. Since a tooth cannot regenerate tissue to heal itself like other mineralized structures, restorations are necessary when a tooth develops dental caries or has been cracked or chipped. For instance, a broken bone can heal over time but a tooth cannot.
Once a tooth is damaged and remains unprotected, its condition will only worsen. As more of the tooth deteriorates, its innermost and more sensitive structures, such as the root, will become exposed to oral debris and bacteria.
When the root is exposed to bacteria, root canal therapy can become necessary to stop the advancement of the infection and ultimately the development of a painful infection that starts at the root of a tooth (an abscess). If a tooth is beyond repair with restorations or endodontics (root canal treatment), it will need to be extracted, and tooth replacement options will become necessary.
If a damaged or a diseased tooth is treated in time, a dental crown can easily prevent the development of an infected root canal or an abscess.
