Over time, teeth can become decayed, damaged, and cracked. Doctors Virtuoso and Mersha can provide you with beautiful dental crowns or bridges to fix the problem and restore your appealing and functional smile.
Not only can dental crowns and bridges repair existing issues, but they can also prevent future problems. To protect your teeth from further cracks, cavities, or weakness, strengthen them with a state-of-the-art dental crown or bridge.
A dental crown is a tooth covering, or cap, that is permanently cemented to a damaged tooth. Crowns can be used to:
- Protect and build up a weak tooth
- Fill in a tooth that is broken or worn don
- Strengthen a tooth with a large filling
- Support a dental bridge
- Cover a discolored tooth
- Reshape a misshapen tooth
At Discovery Dental, we often use porcelain crowns because they are the most aesthetically pleasing option. You will walk away with a perfectly formed tooth that matches your smile flawlessly.
Tooth crowns can be brushed and flossed along with your natural teeth, and they will last for years after placement!
A dental bridge includes two dental crowns and a replacement tooth or teeth. If your tooth is missing or requires extraction, you can quickly regain your full and complete smile with a dental bridge.
Your dental team will create your bridge based on precise impressions of your teeth. The crowns will be permanently cemented into place, and the replacement teeth will seamlessly fill in the gap. The dental crowns are an added bonus: they can strengthen and enhance the abutment teeth!
For the ultimately comfortable and reliable dental bridge experience, you may be interested in a fixed bridge. Fixed bridges are retained by dental implants, which are titanium rods surgically fastened to the jawbone. You will never have to worry about your bridge shifting or feeling out of place.
Dental crowns and bridges have helped millions of patients acquire smiles that they love. To learn more about restorative dentistry at Discovery Dental, give us a call today!
