There are many options to help restore your perfect smile. Is your smile held back by broken, chipped, or missing teeth? We offer beautiful porcelain crowns and bridges to restore the appearance of your smile, help alleviate the stress while chewing and help maintain the shape of the face. Dental crowns are the most popular method of replacing missing teeth and restoring damaged teeth. Dental bridges also serve the same function and bridges gap between one or more teeth.
Crowns are cap-shaped dental restorations that act as replacements for missing teeth and as cosmetic enhancers. They help to improve appearance and aesthetics of the mouth, thereby giving the patient a fuller smile. Crowns come in different types: All-metal, Ceramic-on-metal, and all-ceramic. The type of crown used usually depends on where the restoration is required. Patients would opt for ceramic crowns in the more visible areas of their teeth.
Dental bridges are a way to replace missing teeth. Bridges are recommended for patients who’d want to replace teeth without undergoing surgeries or dentures. A bridge can be composed of two crowns for teeth on either side of the missing tooth (traditional bridges). Traditional bridges can be made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics. They can be supported by natural teeth, implants, or a combination of both.
Your teeth will need some time to heal. With proper cleaning and regular dental check-ups, crowns and bridges can last for many many years.
