Having a fragmented tooth, deterioration of past restorations, or decay in a tooth, could be factors influencing the possibility of having tooth parts missing. These type of situations are taken care of by tooth restorations, as they replace missing teeth or repair missing parts of a tooth. Fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures are all types of tooth restorations offered. Being the most popular form of restoration, teeth can be filled with tooth-colored plastic materials, gold, or silver amalgam. Crowns are shaped like your tooth and placed over it, as a type of cover for the tooth. In order to get the tooth back to its shape and strength, crowns are placed over the tooth to achieve this goal. Another popular restoration are bridges, which are false teeth, connecting a gap between multiple missing teeth. Dentures, a removable replacement for missing teeth, could replace all teeth or some teeth. Tooth restorations are extremely common and highly recommended by doctors in order to keep your oral hygiene in its best form possible.
