Metal crown-root inlays, Dental Care Clinic Clapham Junction

 

There are times when the damage done to a tooth by decay is too extensive to be treated with a simple filling, yet not significant enough to need a full-coverage crown. Bridges, crowns, and inlays are created to restore a tooth’s appearance, structure, or function. Inlays and crowns are intended to repair damage to individual teeth. Dental crowns help preserve the remaining healthy structure of your natural tooth. This prevents tooth loss, which can destabilize the nearby teeth, as well as lead to bone loss. There can be some gum swelling or discomfort when a crown or bridge is fitted. If a bridge implant was completed, there is naturally some discomfort from the surgery.
