Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are restorative dental appliances that can be used to bring back the lost aesthetics and function of missing and damaged teeth. Sweet Water Family Dentistry provides high-quality, custom-made bridges and crowns that look and feel perfectly natural.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that may be used to restore strength and beauty to teeth that are discolored, broken or weak. A crown covers the part of the tooth that is visible below the gum line. Some patients have existing metal crowns that are uncomfortable, worn, unattractive, or broken. We can replace them with more aesthetic, durable ceramic crowns. Crowns are used in implant dentistry, to restore a lost tooth by securing to the artificial root. They are also used to protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy to add stability and reinforcement to the natural tooth structure.
A dental bridge is an excellent way to replace multiple missing teeth. Bridges consist of artificial teeth that span the gap created by lost teeth and are attached to the natural teeth or implants at both ends of the gap. Bridges restore your teeth and oral health in more than one ways by performing the following functions:
- Fill the space created by missing teeth
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Maintain facial shape.
- Restore your smile
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
Advances in cosmetic dentistry have led to significant improvements in the materials and techniques used in dental crowns and bridges. Modern crown and bridge restorations look and feel like natural teeth. They are durable and stain resistant and very easy to care for. With a proper oral health routine, they will last for many years.
