Who Should Get Crowns and Bridges

Whether your teeth are chipped, broken or missing altogether, there is one question you're probably asking: "What is the best way to restore my chipped, broken or missing teeth?" Thankfully, depending on the problem, Dr. Gale Marana, DDS, your trusted Aiea area dentist, has a few great solutions for you to consider.

Dental Crowns

Dental CrownsDental crowns are a great option for people who still have part of their tooth, but who need to have part of it replaced or strengthened. Dental crowns can replace a small part of the tooth, cover just the top of the tooth, or even replace the entire tooth when they are used to cap dental implants. Because dental crowns are made from synthetic materials, they cannot get cavities. You will still need to brush and floss regularly, but the next time you visit your Aiea dentist, cavities won't be on your mind.

Today's dental crowns look completely natural and are easy to maintain. If you think you might be a good candidate for dental crowns and would like to learn more, call Dr. Marana today.

Dental Bridges

Dental BridgesDental bridges are a great option for people who are missing one or more teeth altogether or whose teeth are so badly damaged that they really should be replaced. Dental bridges work by connecting to the teeth on each side of the missing tooth and bridging the gap with one or more false teeth. Bridges help keep your teeth in their proper places by filling in the spot where your missing tooth was so that your other teeth don't begin to crowd in.
