Crowns, also known as caps, are a fantastic way to replace a tooth that has been partially lost, but still has a significant part remaining. A crown may be a great option for when a filling is not enough for a tooth, but a full replacement is not necessary. Crowns are often made from porcelain or a similar type of material, which means that it will look identical to your other teeth, and blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Dentures and bridges
If you have several teeth missing, then something more may be needed instead of crowns. Dentures may be an option if you need to replace an entire row of teeth at once, and is extremely cost effective, as opposed to replacing every tooth. If you have multiple teeth missing in a row, then a bridge may be an option, often secured in place by two crowns.
Dental implants are a relatively new treatment and are extremely advanced. They can also be expensive, but by far the most effective way to replace a tooth. Dental implants work by using a series of drills to make a small hole into the jawbone and inserting a titanium implant. The bone will then grow around the implant, essentially fusing it into your jaw, making it extremely strong and durable. Dental implants, if maintained correctly, can last for a lifetime, which means that they are expensive.
If you have lost a tooth, and need to see an emergency dentist in Barrow-in-Furness, then do not hesitate to ask your dentist what your options are for replacing it. Your dentist will then be able to discuss with you the best course of action, and go ahead with the treatment that is right for you.
