Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
A dental crown is a dental device that can be utilized for a number of different treatments. In most cases, a dental crown is made to protect natural teeth that need additional protection, while also beautifying your smile. Some of the dental treatments that dental crowns can be used for include root canals, repairing broken teeth, creating a “new” tooth with a dental implant, as well as being used for dental bridges.
A dental bridge is a dental device used for replacing one or more missing teeth, and can come in the form of a fixed dental bridge or a removable one. In most situations, dental bridges are anchored on both sides by beautiful porcelain crowns that act to support the dental bridge.
A dental bridge has a number of advantages including:
- Appearance – Because a dental bridge fills in the gap caused by missing teeth, they help create a more cosmetically beautiful smile. Our dental bridges are also designed to look and feel like real teeth, so that no one has to know that you are missing teeth.
- Functionality – Dental bridges are made to be highly functional and restore functionality to where your teeth were missing. This can help improve ability to speak and ability to go back to eating foods that may have become more difficult to eat with lost teeth.
- Oral Health – When teeth are missing it forces other teeth to compensate for their loss. This means these teeth are required to do more work load, and can result in them wearing down faster and less evenly than before. By getting a dental bridge, you can reduce the workload on these teeth and keep your oral health on track.
