Dental Repair Options

When it comes to repairing damaged teeth there are many options available. Some common dental choices include veneers, removable dentures, dental implants and more. Many of these dental replacement and repair choices are made of two types of material: composite resin and porcelain.

Porcelain Crowns

Dental crowns are most commonly made out of porcelain because of the natural look and feel that it gives to your teeth. Crowns are little dental caps that are placed on top of a tooth to help give it a better shape, color, or function. It’s like a very large filling.

Porcelain Bridges

If you are missing teeth a dental bridge can be a great replacement option. A dental bridge is a fake tooth (or set of teeth) that can be kept in place by your surrounding natural teeth. Using your natural teeth as anchors on either side of your gap it helps create a natural look and feel. Porcelain bridges last up to 15 years when cared for properly.
