Are some of your teeth showing signs of decay? Do you need to repair a broken tooth or whiten your damaged teeth? Dental crowns may be the answer. A dental crown is a cap that is placed over you tooth to protect it from further decay or simply improve the look of your tooth. Dental bridges are also an option to fill in the gap of a missing tooth with a crown. We offer many different types of crowns.
What are the Steps to Getting a Dental Crown?
The placement of a dental crown is done in just two visits to the dentist. At the first visit, the dentist will examine your tooth. Your tooth will then be prepped and fitted for the placement of the crown and the permanent crown will be ordered. Until the permanent crown arrives, you will be given a temporary crown in its place.
Once the permanent crown arrives, you will come for your second visit. The permanent crown will be placed over your tooth in place of the temporary crown.
If you are looking for a one-visit appointment to get a dental crown, you may consider CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) Crowns. With the technology provided in our office, we are able to place a CEREC crown in only one appointment. There are also other advantages to choosing the CEREC Crown. These crowns are made of one of the strongest materials that we offer. These crowns can also be color-matched to the rest of your teeth for a more natural look.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap between two existing teeth that is left when a tooth is extracted or falls out. A bridge is made up of two crowns, one on each side of the gap, and these teeth act as abutments. A false tooth can be placed in the middle where the gap is. Dental bridges can be supported by natural teeth or dental implants. Traditionally, bridges are made of porcelain fused to ceramics or metal. Bridges can restore your smile and your ability to chew or speak properly.
