Understanding Dental Crowns

If you have a tooth that has been broken or damaged due to decay, disease, or injury, a dental crown can be an excellent solution. Dental crowns, often referred to as teeth caps, are designed to restore the strength, functionality, and appearance of your tooth. Each teeth cap is custom-made to fit seamlessly into your smile, ensuring a natural look and feel. The crown is bonded over your existing tooth, covering it completely to prevent further damage and decay. In cases where a tooth is missing, a crown can be placed on a dental implant to restore your smile. Dental crowns are durable and intended to last for many years, providing a reliable solution for your oral health. They not only protect your tooth but also enhance its appearance, giving you the confidence to smile freely.

Understanding Dental Bridges

Losing a tooth can cause more than just a gap in your smile; it can lead to your remaining teeth shifting out of place, resulting in a misaligned bite and difficulties with chewing and speaking. Dental bridges offer an effective solution to replace missing teeth and prevent these complications. A dental bridge spans the gap where your tooth is missing, keeping your teeth in their proper positions and maintaining a healthy bite. This restoration can be anchored by crowns placed on the adjacent teeth or supported by a dental implant for added stability. Dental bridges are custom-made to blend in with your natural teeth, ensuring a cohesive and attractive smile. With a dental bridge, you can regain not only the function of your teeth but also the confidence that comes with a complete and beautiful smile.

The Crown & Bridge Process

Both crowns and bridges typically require two appointments to complete — one at which impressions are taken and any necessary tooth preparation is done, and a second at which the final crown or bridge is anchored in place. Our dentist will evaluate your teeth and smile in your initial consultation to determine if a crown or bridge is right for you, and will discuss the timeline of your treatment with you prior to providing any care.
