Raleigh Dental Crowns
Raleigh dentist Dr. Justin Russo uses porcelain crowns to protect your teeth from fracturing and needing root canals. A porcelain crown will not only strengthen your tooth, it will improve the appearance of a tooth with a large filling because most fillings are flat and not contoured well. If a tooth requires a root canal, a porcelain crown is used to protect all root canal-treated teeth from fracturing.
A dental crown helps strengthen a tooth, covers and protects a broken tooth, prevents teeth with large fillings from fracturing and helps to hold a dental bridge in place.
If a dental bridge is recommended to replace a missing tooth, Dr. Russo will carefully fit you for a temporary bridge while the permanent bridge is constructed. While you are waiting for your permanent bridge, you will need to be careful with the foods you eat. Once your permanent bridge is in place, you can eat your favorite foods with no issues.
Advantages of Dental Bridges and Crowns:
- Bridges the gap between missing teeth
- Prevents bacteria from forming in the open gum, which can lead to gum disease and tooth decay
- Improves the appearance of your smile
- Restores your speech pattern
