Is a Tooth Filling Used to Fix Cavities?
A tooth filling is used to restore function and appearance to a tooth that may have been damaged by disease, decay, injury, or a genetic defect. Usually, amalgam fillings are used but other types of fillings are available, depending on the location of the affected tooth.
Do Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges Serve Different Purposes?
Dental crowns, also called dental caps, can be installed onto a tooth that can’t be repaired by a filling. The crown covers the entire tooth to the gum line. A tooth bridge replaces a missing tooth and is anchored to adjacent teeth or to a dental implant. Both crowns and bridges will restore functionality to the teeth and help maintain the structural integrity of the jaw. For more information on crowns and bridges in Wilbraham, please call our office. We’ll be happy to answer all your questions.
