Dental crowns are great service to offer to our patients. They provide for a situation when a tooth is missing more than 60% of it's tooth above the gum, we're able to put a cap or crown on it, so that the tooth is able to be saved and we don't have to remove it or do another procedure to it that would necessitate building it back up to its form and function. Bridges are an option when someone's missing a tooth we're able to bridge that gap by reshaping the tooth in front of it and reshaping the tooth behind it and placing the bridge that goes in between and replaces that missing tooth so it's one piece but it's replacing three teeth.
Dental Crowns: Protect Damaged Or Weak Teeth
Dental crowns are porcelain caps for damaged or weak teeth that cover and protect teeth from further damage. A crown not only protects damaged teeth from further harm, but it also improves your appearance through giving teeth a pearly white look! Dental Crowns can also hold bridges in place, and when they do this, they are called “abutment teeth.” Improve your oral health and comfort by dropping by at our Rochester Hills, MI dentists office and be fitted with dental crowns!
Having dental crowns can greatly improve your way of life because you will be able to eat the foods that you wish to eat. Oftentimes, having a damaged, cracked, chipped, or decayed tooth can affect what kind of foods you can eat, because chewing some foods may cause pain. With dental crowns, you will essentially be putting a cap on a damaged tooth, so you can eat without limitations. At the Rochester Hills, MI dentists office of Hubbard & Leath Dental, we want to see you improve your way of life, and putting dental crowns on a damaged tooth is just one of the ways we can make that happen!
Bridges: An Excellent Replacement For Missing Teeth
Are you missing teeth, but you aren’t sure of the best way to replace them? Let Hubbard & Leath Dental tell you what your best option is for replacing those missing teeth! One excellent option is a bridge or fixed partial denture. A bridge is a row of artificial teeth that is held in place by either a crown or an implant on each side. Bridges are a great way to fill gaps in your smile that are created by the loss of teeth. Consult our top-notch Rochester Hills, MI dentists at Hubbard & Leath Dental today to find out if this is the best option for you!
Inlays & Onlays To Replace Fillings and Repair Decay
When you are diagnosed with a cavity, decay, or damage around a filling, the next step in repairing that damage is to have a filling. Over time, a filling will get old and sometimes the decay will be too extensive to be replaced by another filling. At this point, your dentist will replace them with either inlays or onlays. Inlays are replacements for fillings that fit inside of the surrounding ridges of a tooth and provide a new, sturdy restoration. Onlays are a more extensive procedure that replaces the filling that extends onto the ridges of the tooth. Whichever restoration procedure that you are set to have, your trusted Rochester Hills, MI dentists at Hubbard & Leath Dental will make sure you are comfortable and satisfied with your inlays or onlays.
Implant-Supported Bridges For Superior Oral Health
The greatest characteristic of implants is that they not only replace missing teeth with beautiful looking functional replacement teeth, but they also fill the void left by the roots of the tooth. By taking the place of the roots, implants help keep the bone that surrounds the tooth from deteriorating. Implants can also serve the purpose of holding a bridge or dentures in place. By keeping the bridge or dentures firmly in place, implants save you from the common annoyance of your appliance wearing down or coming loose and thus affecting speech, chewing, and appearance. Implant-supported dentures can change your life by making things easier and more comfortable! Consult our top Rochester Hills, MI dentists at Hubbard & Leath Dental to find out if this is the best implant-supported dental bridge option for you!
