Protecting and reinforcing your teeth while addressing dental problems is what crowns and bridges are all about.
A dental crown is a custom-made prosthetic tooth that is used to cover a damaged tooth. It restores function while also strengthening and stabilizing the tooth. Dental bridges enhance the look of your smile by replacing the space left by a missing tooth.
Crowns and bridges are dental restorations that can help patients achieve their aim of having a beautiful smile as well as good oral health.

Crowns for teeth are cap-like restorations cemented over damaged teeth to repair their appearance and strengthen and protect them from further damage. They assist to keep dental implants, bridges, and damaged teeth from deteriorating.
Crowns can be made of many different materials, including porcelain, ceramic, gold, and other metals. Your dental crown is designed to appear, feel, and function exactly like natural teeth.
To create place for the dental crown, our experts must file your teeth and remove a portion of the enamel - more if decay is present. Then, we take impressions of your mouth to serve as a pattern for the crown.
The crown construction operation takes at least a few weeks, during which you must wear a temporary crown. Your temporary crown will be replaced with your final restoration at your second appointment.
Once you're happy with the results, our experts will cement the crown in place and make minor adjustments as needed. If properly cared for, dental crowns can last up to eight years.
Dental bridges are tooth replacement devices that look and feel like real teeth. This restoration, like an architectural bridge, employs abutments (supporting teeth) to secure the prosthetic tooth in the center. Bridges are classified into three categories:
Traditional bridges are used to bridge the gap between two healthy teeth. The teeth on each side of the gap aid in the retention of the bridge.
If there are no healthy teeth on one (or both) sides to support the bridge, this kind is employed. These are frequently utilized in the rear of the mouth.
Instead of supporting teeth, a Maryland bridge replaces a missing tooth by connecting to a metal or porcelain framework. These are frequently utilized for the front teeth.
Once you've settled on the ideal bridge for your smile, our staff files and removes a little piece of enamel from your abutment teeth to create space for long-lasting dental crowns. He then takes impressions of your mouth to build your abutment crowns and false teeth.
Because bridge building takes at least two weeks, our specialists may be able to fit you for a temporary bridge. At your next appointment, this bridge will be removed and replaced with a permanent substitute.
Similar to how a dental crown is set, our team cements the bridge in place and makes small modifications as needed to restore function to your bite.
