We take lost and damaged teeth very seriously. Our crowns and bridges provide the restoration results you need to smile proudly and confidently.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
When teeth are lost or significantly damaged, dental crowns and bridges be used as reliable solutions. They not only restore functionality for chewing and speaking, but they also have a natural appearance. Crafted from high-quality materials, our crowns and bridges are built to last and deliver outstanding performance. We take pride in seamlessly integrating these restorations with your natural teeth, ensuring they not only look the part but also function just like the real deal. In instances where the damage proves too extensive for crowns or bridges, the use of a dental implant may need to be considered.
What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are used when a tooth has a very large filling that exceeds the natural tooth structure, your tooth had root canal therapy or for cosmetic reasons.
Dental crowns serve various purposes, each contributing to the restoration of your dental health First, they are used to cover and protect damaged teeth. This restores the tooth’s functionality and appearance. Additionally, crowns can be affixed to dental implants, which are surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. This integration provides stability and security, ensuring the crown functions seamlessly and stays firmly in place.
Additionally, dental crowns may also be used to provide extra support for dental bridges. They do not require any special treatment and can be brushed and flossed as normal.
What is a dental bridge?
Dental bridges are frequently used to address tooth loss in patients. These bridges span the gap left by missing teeth with one or more replacement teeth. They can be anchored in place using abutment crowns on either side or via precision metal fixtures securely installed within the mouth. We custom design each component of a dental bridge to ensure that it looks natural and provides the desired performance.
How do temporary dental crowns work?
There are a few steps your dentists will follow in putting on a dental crown. Crowns typically begin with taking an impression of your upper and lower dental arches to create a replica of your teeth so a permanent crown will fit securely on the base of the tooth being crowned without letting any bacteria enter underneath the tooth structure.
Most dentists take this impression and send it off to a dental laboratory for the permanent dental crown to be built. To get the impression correct for the permanent dental crown, they must shape the tooth base below it, which could leave your tooth vulnerable in the short period between the impression being made and the permanent dental crown being delivered. Temporary dental crowns are used to ensure your tooth is protected during this period.
