STARTING OFF WITH GOOD DENTAL CARE
As a trusted dentist, we offer crowns for cosmetic and restorative purposes so that our valued patients can enjoy their smiles while preserving their oral health. If you are missing one or more teeth, your dentist may suggest the use of a fixed bridge and dental crowns.
The gap left by a missing tooth can cause the remaining teeth to shift or move. It is important for your oral health to replace the missing tooth or teeth, and fixed bridges are one of the solutions for doing so. Bridges consist of artificial teeth and crowns, which are ‘caps’ that go over the teeth on both sides of the bridge and serve as anchors to stabilize the bridge. Traditional bridges are usually made from porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
Crowns & Bridges are touted as one of the most esthetic and clinically proven all-ceramic restorations available today. Crowns can be needed for several reasons such as when a tooth has broken, a tooth is cracked, a tooth has a cavity that is so large it threatens the health of the tooth, or a tooth either needs a root canal or has had a root canal already.
A filling requires a stable amount of tooth structure to support it. When a tooth has experienced severe decay a filling cannot be used to restore it because either the filling or the tooth will break under the stress of normal use. A crown strengthens the tooth whether it is cracked, decayed, etc. Ceramic crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be used to cover misshapen or badly discolored teeth.
They can also be used to help align and enhance the appearance of broken, discolored teeth and can be made of porcelain, gold, or porcelain overlaid on metal. Crowns are placed over teeth to reinforce weakened tooth structure. Whether the tooth is cracked, fractured or root canal treated, dental crowns are used to give the additional strength and durability the tooth needs to last for years.
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or just normal wear-and-tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. A porcelain crown fits over the top of the tooth covering the remaining portion of the natural tooth structure and restoring the look and function of the original tooth.
