HomeTown Dental, Sherman
HomeTown Dental in Sherman, TX, offers restorative dental treatments necessary to improve your
teeth's appearance and to improve overall dental health. We also offer several restorative dental
treatments like dental crowns, bridges, dentures and implants.
At HomeTown Dental, Sherman, we offer crown and bridgework, which play an integral part of restorative dentistry procedures. These procedures help restore teeth which have been damaged, lost, decayed, have structural problems or bite dysfunctions. A crown may even repair damaged tooth and restore its original appearance and function while dental bridges can replace more than one tooth. The restorations are firmly attached to the teeth and are referred to as ‘fixed’ dentistry (instead of making use of a partial denture or a removable appliance).
A crown is a prosthetic attachment placed on a tooth to improve the appearance of the tooth and increase its strength and durability. At the time when a tooth is fractured, damaged or has an outdated filling, doctors often tend to recommend the placement of a crown. A dental crown strengthens and even protects the rest of the tooth structure and thus improves your overall smile. There are different types of dental crowns available and include a full porcelain crown, an all-metal crown and porcelain fused to metal crown. Our dentists will recommend one depending on your needs.
Posterior Crown: The tooth is prepared first and then the crown fitted to the tooth.
Bonded Crown: The damaged tooth is prepared for the placement of the dental crown. A crown is made with the help of a metal base and porcelain coating and then the crown is installed at a particular place.
Anterior Crown: The tooth is prepared and an impression of it is taken. The crown is then made with the help of the impression and fixed onto the tooth.
If more than one of your teeth are missing, the rest of them may drift somewhat from their original position. This could possibly result in change of the bite, decay, gum disease and even the loss of additional teeth. In such a situation, dentists at HomeTown Dental may recommend the placement of a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a group of interconnected crowns.
Earlier, if people had missing teeth they needed to wear dentures. However, this is not the sole treatment offered these days. Dental implants can be used to replace one or more teeth (in addition to maintaining dentures). These have a unique design and can be fitted into small spaces.
