As we get a little older, our teeth begin to change and are prone to decay. Other reasons for crown are but not limited to, bruxism(teeth grinding), general decay, root canals, cracked teeth/fillings, rotated teeth, restoring chewing function, cosmetic purpose, etc.
Different types of crowns include a full porcelain crown, a porcelain fused to metal or gold crown, or a full gold crown.
A bridge is one of the few options that you have when deciding how to deal with a missing tooth or teeth. It is a link or connection between two permanent structures. A dental bridge is very similar in that it attaches the restorative teeth (bridge) to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. This bridge acts as your new teeth, closing the gap and restoring your smile.
During your first visit, we begin with the removal of all decay in the tooth and/or reduction of your tooth structure to create space for a crown. We will take an impression of the tooth, which will be sent to our lab. While this new tooth is created, we will provide you with a temporary restoration. During your second visit to the office, we will proceed with the placement and cementation of your final restoration. This crown will be fitted comfortably into the mouth, leaving you with a beautifully restored smile.
