Smile problems? Dentists have a wide array of tools at their disposal for improving the appearance of your smile. Dr. Ronald Schoepflin at Schoepflin Dental Excellence in Port Orchard, WA, offers a full range of dental services. Here are four different dental treatments you should consider if you want a great smile.
There are four different kinds of braces people can choose from to improve their smile: metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, and invisible braces. Braces offer more than just a beautiful smile, they also improve quality of life. Not correcting an abnormal bite could result in further oral health problems, including affected chewing and speech. Orthodontic treatment will improve your ability to chew, speak, and bite correctly.
Dental crowns are "caps" that are placed over the teeth -- to restore their size and shape, strength and improve their appearance. When a crown is cemented into place, it fully encases the visible portion of the tooth. Dental crowns are used to restore weakened, badly decayed, damaged, chipped and cracked teeth. All-porcelain dental crowns look great and they match the color of natural teeth exceptionally well.
A dental bridge closes the gap created by one or more lost teeth. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining a false tooth permanently to surrounding teeth or implants. With a fixed dental bridge, not only can you fill the gap in your smile, you can improve the color and shape of the tooth that you are crowning.
Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement. An implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone that allows your Port Orchard dentist to mount false teeth or a bridge into that area. Missing teeth can cause a cascade of oral health problems, including shifting of adjacent teeth and bone loss. With dental implants, you will avoid developing these problems.
