Crowns, Bridges, Veneers
Restoring a tooth that is decayed, fractured, or lost due to gum disease or an accident is necessary to maintain functionality. The dental materials used today are designed to withstand being in the mouth while also remaining compatible with gum tissue.
Crowns cover most or all of a tooth, and a bridge is attached to two or more crowns to fill the space where a tooth is missing. A veneer is a thin, tooth-colored piece cemented onto the front of a tooth. They can improve the look of stained or badly shaped teeth and close small spaces or gaps between teeth.
Dental work like bridges and crowns can be challenging to keep clean. The Waterpik® Water Flosser oral irrigator is designed to clean around all types of dental work and restorations. The pulsating action helps clean where bacteria and food can get trapped. A sonic electric toothbrush with soft bristles can also clean around dental work above the gumline.
