You could have parts of a tooth missing due to decay, deterioration of prior restorations, or a fractured tooth. This is when tooth restorations come into play, replacing missing teeth or repairing missing parts of a tooth. Some of the tooth restorations offered are fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures. Being the most common form of restoration, teeth can be filled with tooth-colored plastic materials, gold, or silver amalgam. Crowns are a type of cap, shaped like your tooth, that is placed over the tooth in order to get its shape and strength back how its supposed to.
Another popular restoration is false teeth, known as bridges, which connect a gap between multiple missing teeth. Dentures, a removable replacement for missing teeth, could replace all teeth or some teeth.
