Cosmetic dentistry is part of overall dentistry which refers to any dental treatments or procedure that enhances the looks and structure (marking the appearance and functionality) of teeth set, gums and their tissues Majorly Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the physical appearance like colour, placement, shape, the depth, alignment and total smile experience and its appearance. Dental Restoration is somewhere down the line a part of cosmetic surgery but also including the inner issues and not just the physical appearances.
The process of dental restoration or dental amendments is a procedure to restore the functionality, looks, and intactness of missing tooth structure which is the result from cavities or external damage and accidents and also the replacement of such dental case through wide range of dental implants and dentures.
Dental restorations are very different ways a dentist can restore or change missing set of teeth or repair missing parts of the tooth structure. Tooth set can be uneven due to cavities, decays or dental deterioration of a previously done restoration, or any external trauma or damage on tooth.
There are many restoration wares used for different types of dental restoration, Like filling, implants, crowns, bridges, braces and dentures. The most common of them are dental crowns and dental bridges.
Dental Crowns are a teeth-shaped “caps” that is placed and set above the teeth that help in restoring the shape and size of the teeth, it also gives strength and enhances appearance of the teeth set. It helps in holding the bridge in place with the teeth structure or can also be used to cover a previously done dental implant.
A dental crown becomes very useful in the following situations:
- To restore a decayed tooth (for instance, from cavity) from falling apart or to hold the broken of fragmented tooth together.
- To protect and restore a tooth that has been broken due to external trauma or accident
- To hold the tooth which recently underwent some other dental restoration treatments
- To keep any dental bridge in place.
- To cover the decoloured or severely injured tooth
- It is also used over any dental implant.
Dental Bridges are false or prosthetic teeth that are specially made to “bridge” or to say connect the gap between two or more teeth. This gap can be created by one or more missing teeth or broken teeth. Dental bridges are generally screwed or anchored on any side of the tooth by crowns and cemented perfectly into the place forever.
There are four types of Dental Bridges:
Traditional dental bridge
A traditional type of dental bridge is made of a cosmetic tooth or teeth which is being held in position by the help of dental crowns that are cemented in their place by two abutment teeth.
Cantilever dental bridge
Cantilever Dental Bridge is way similar to traditional dental bridge but the only difference is, instead of two abutment teeth the dental crown is cemented with only one abutment teeth.
Maryland dental bridge
In Maryland Dental Bridge, instead of dental crowns on the abutment teeth, a wire framework is used to hold it together, the framework is either made up of porcelain or metal which is attached to the back of the tooth.
Implant-supported dental bridge
These types of bridges use the support of dental implants and hold the structure together.
