Whether you are dealing with damaged teeth or missing one or more teeth, our porcelain crowns and bridges are designed to restore both function and aesthetics to your smile.
The Role of Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges serve important roles in restorative dentistry:
- Crowns: A crown or cap, is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength and appearance.
- Bridges: A bridge is used to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth, anchored in place by crowns on either side of the gap or by dental implants.
The Crown and Bridge Procedure
Our process for crowns and bridges is thorough and patient-focused:
- Initial Consultation: Assessing your oral health and discussing your restoration options.
- Tooth Preparation: Reshaping the tooth (or teeth) to accommodate the crown or bridge.
- Impressions: Taking molds of your teeth to create custom-fit restorations.
- Temporary Solutions: Fitting temporary crowns or bridges while your custom restorations are made.
- Final Placement: Cementing your permanent crown or bridge, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.
Benefits of Crowns and Bridges
- Functional Improvement: Restores and maintains your ability to chew and speak properly.
- Aesthetic Enhancement: Improves the appearance of your smile.
- Durability: Offers a long-term solution with proper care.
- Protection: Shields weakened teeth from further damage and fills the gaps to prevent other teeth from shifting.
