Dentist South Point Durham, NC
Preserving the health of your smile for a lifetime is always Dr. Cooper’s top priority. She and her team are highly trained and skilled in all aspects of restorative dentistry.
If the condition of your teeth has been compromised due to infection or decay, Dr. Cooper can offer numerous options to maximize your oral health and restore your smile.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
If a tooth has become infected to the point that it is too weak to take a filling, Dr. Cooper uses porcelain dental crowns to restore the tooth’s strength and beauty. Depending on the condition and location of the tooth, Dr. Cooper may use all-porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns to replace the damaged tooth.
When gaps are left by missing teeth, the remaining teeth will eventually begin to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. Imbalances caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and other complications. In these cases, Dr. Cooper may recommend a porcelain or ceramic bridge, which spans the gap between missing teeth. The bridge is then cemented to the nearby natural teeth for a seamless, natural-looking smile.
