Restoring Your Smile
Crowns and bridges are two of the best solutions to fix damaged or missing teeth. Unlike removable solutions like dentures, crowns and bridges are permanent solution. These fixed pieces fit on to existing teeth.
When It Is Necessary for a Crown or Bridge
A crown or bridge may be required to do the following:
- Restore damaged teeth.
- Ensure that a weak tooth is kept from fracturing.
- Replacement for large fillings if there is too little healthy tooth remaining.
- Replacement for a tooth, fixed to a dental implant.
- Cover a discolored or misshapen tooth.
What is a Dental Crown?
Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that encase a tooth or are fixed to a dental implant. Crown help strengthen and protect the tooth, and are often used in the case of a large cavity threatening the health of a tooth. At Lowry Main Street Dental, your dentist will recommend the best option for you, whether it be full porcelain or full metal.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Bridges are appliances also known as fixed partial dentures, and their function is to span the space where teeth are missing, fixed to adjoining teeth or to a dental implant. These are fully customizable, and in some cases, the adjacent teeth have to be reduced to ensure a good fit. An impression will be made to provide an exact mold for your bridge, and like crowns, the bridge can be made of a wide range of materials from full metals to full porcelain.
