Crown and bridgework is a reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Typically, the material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Fitting a dental crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal. During your final visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
Dental crowns can be used to replace missing teeth or provide support for misshapen or badly broken teeth. Our restorative solutions will look completely natural while repairing the appearance, function, and health of your smile.
