If you have teeth that are missing, severely decayed, or weakened, contact our office to discuss your options.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are custom-made covers that individually cap the entire visible portion of your tooth to improve its appearance, strength, and function. Dental crowns typically take 2 appointments to prepare and finalize your restoration.
During your first appointment, one of our dentists will remove a very small amount of your tooth to accommodate your crown. Then, they will take impressions of your smile to develop a crown that matches your teeth’s natural color and appearance. You’ll be given a temporary crown to wear until your next appointment, where one of our dentists will place and finalize your crown.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Fixed bridges get their name because they bridge the gap to replace one or more teeth that are missing consecutively. Dental bridges are fixed to dental crowns or the remaining teeth in your natural smile to keep them anchored and in place. They differ from traditional dentures because they are stabilized by the teeth or crowns adjacent to the gap. Dental bridges not only fill in your smile, but they also improve your biting power and ability to speak.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges?
Both dental bridges and dental crowns in Montgomeryville have the ability to improve the strength and appearance of your smile. Our experienced team takes special images and impressions to provide a precise match to your natural smile. Your smile will not only be restored, but you’ll receive an immediate boost in confidence after seeing your completed grin. Additionally, you’ll be able to eat all of your favorite foods without worrying about debris getting caught in gaps or pain from a weakened tooth.
How to Determine if You need a Crown or Bridge
You may need a dental crown if you:
- Have a severely decayed tooth
- Are unhappy with the shape or look of a tooth
- Have a tooth with an existing filling that needs support
- Need to restore a dental implant
- Have an injured, chipped, or cracked tooth
If you have any of these issues, our dentists will give your mouth a careful examination to decide whether a crown is right for you. If your smile is missing multiple teeth consecutively, you could be a great candidate for dental bridges. The best way to find out is to schedule an appointment. Our highly-trained dental team will examine your smile to decide which option is best for you. Contact our office today to get started on a beautifully restored set of teeth.
