Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are protective caps placed over damaged or weakened teeth to restore their strength, functionality and appearance. Crafted from materials like porcelain, metal or a combination of both, crowns offer durability and a natural look. The treatment process for crowns involves preparing the tooth, taking impressions and fitting a temporary crown before the final restoration.

Dental crowns effectively address issues such as tooth decay, cracks, fractures or large fillings that compromise dental health. By encasing the tooth entirely, crowns provide structural support, enhancing chewing ability and preventing further deterioration. With proper care, including regular oral hygiene and dental exams, dental crowns can offer lasting solutions for a healthier and more confident smile.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are restorative dental devices used to replace missing teeth, restoring both functionality and aesthetics to your smile. They consist of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, anchored in place by dental crowns on adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges not only improve chewing and speaking capabilities, but they also prevent neighboring teeth from shifting, maintaining proper dental alignment.

The process for receiving a dental bridge involves preparing the anchor teeth, taking impressions and crafting a custom bridge to fit seamlessly within your mouth. With proper care, including regular oral hygiene practices and dental exams, dental bridges can offer a durable solution for individuals seeking to regain their complete smile and oral wellbeing.
