Wellspring Dental offers a range of restorative dental services including fillings, crowns, and bridges for the residents of Deep River.
Fillings are used if your tooth has decay or is fractured and requires fixing. Resin or white fillings are offered as an aesthetic option for your smile. As they are bonded to your tooth they seal the gap between teeth and filling and add strength to the structure.
When a tooth is cracked, decayed, or damaged, a dental crown may need to be fitted onto the tooth. A dental crown is a permanent covering that fits over the original tooth. Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold or a combination of both materials.
Porcelain crowns typically have the most tooth-like appearance, although they tend to be less durable than other materials when used on your back molars.
A dental bridge is a device used to fill the space where a tooth has fallen out or been removed. A typical dental bridge consists of a filler tooth that is attached to two surrounding crowns. Once complete, this bridge structure is bonded or cemented into the mouth.
Without the use of a bridge, spaces in the mouth from missing teeth can cause multiple teeth to shift, lead to bad bites, and/or jaw problems, and may cause gum disease.
