Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns have revolutionized the restorative aspect of dentistry, and today they look more natural than ever! Crowns are customized to fit over individual teeth and provide long-term valuable support and protection. Dental crowns are commonly used to provide additional support to damaged teeth, or to mask dental flaws such as misshapened or discolored teeth. One of the greatest things about crowns is the fact that it does two jobs in one. Crowns are able to protect your teeth from wear and tear all while making your smile look as natural as possible.The dental crown procedure is normally done in two sessions. During the first session, the tooth is prepared for a crown by filing down excess tooth. Once that is completed, a temporary crown is placed until the permanent crown is ready. During your second session, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is cemented in place.
Having missing teeth from your smile is never and easy thing to live with. If you are thinking about a way to make your smile more complete without having surgery, a dental bridge is a great alternative. A dental bridge is a permanent solution to fill in the gaps caused by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are customized crowns that attach permanently to the existing teeth on both sides of the empty space and are custom-made according to the size, shape and general coloring of the surrounding natural teeth.
Dental crowns and bridges are effective, long-lasting and safe solutions for patients with broken, cracked, missing or discolored teeth. With proper care, they can last for many years.
