Crowns & Bridges
Dentists provide an important service to the community by helping people to maintain their dental health. One way they do this is by offering dental crowns and bridges. Dental crowns are used to cover a damaged or misshapen tooth, while bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. We also use bridges to support a denture or to close a gap between two teeth. Our dentists take great care to ensure that their patients receive quality care and that their dental crowns and bridges are made from high-quality materials. In addition, we also work hard to keep their prices affordable so that everyone can have access to the dental care they need.
Is a crown or a bridge right for me?
Dentists are often asked whether a crown or bridge is the right option for a patient. The answer varies depending on each individual’s unique situation. In general, crowns are used to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay or injury. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Both options can provide patients with years of quality dental care. We will work with each patient to determine which option is best for their needs.
Patients should also be aware that there are many different types of crowns and bridges available. They range in size, shape, and material. We help patients choose the right option based on their individual needs and preferences. Patients should also be sure to ask about the costs associated with each type of crown or bridge. In our community, we offer affordable dental care that is tailored to each patient’s unique needs.
What should I expect when I have my crown or bridge placed?
If you are a candidate for a crown or bridge, your teeth will be reduced to ensure a proper fit. An impression will then be taken of your bite and used to fabricate a mold for the crown or bridge. If you are choosing porcelain prosthesis, its color will be matched to the natural shade of your other teeth. If a dental lab is making your crown or bridge, you may be fitted with a temporary restoration until the permanent one is ready for placement.
Why are my gums bleeding and how can I treat this?
The first few days after your tooth is fixed will be tough, but you should start to feel better as time goes on. You may experience some sensitivity and soreness in the gums around those teeth – just take ibuprofen for it!
