If you’re missing one or more teeth, the condition can have serious effects on your overall oral health. It can cause your bite to shift and lead to a poor smile and jaw pain, but restoring these gaps with bridges or crowns is a viable option that can help you maintain your natural teeth and improve your oral health in the process.
At Go 2 Dental, we offer a variety of crowns and bridges that will fit your unique needs and help you enjoy the best possible oral health. We use advanced technology to ensure that your restorations are made from the highest quality materials and will look as natural as possible.
Whether your tooth has been damaged by decay, trauma, or a root canal, a crown can help you restore it to its original shape and size and provide the strength you need to chew properly. A dental crown can be fabricated from porcelain or ceramic and will match your other teeth, enhancing the appearance of your smile.
The exact dimensions of your crown will be determined based on the original shape and size of your tooth and will then be reshaped and sized to fit in place. Your dentist will take impressions or use our in-house 3D CAD/CAM technology to create the ideal crown for you.
You will then need to come in for two visits so that we can prepare your teeth, build your bridge and fit your new crowns and bridge. On the first visit, we’ll remove any decay or fillings and prep the teeth on either side of the gap for your crowns.
On the second visit, we’ll cement your bridge in place and attach the crowns. We’ll also check to make sure the bridge is comfortable and stable.
We’ll also clean your abutment teeth and ensure that they’re free from debris. Your dental bridge should last for years if you care for it properly.
Both crowns and bridges are a permanent fixture in your mouth, but they need to be maintained by brushing, flossing, and visiting us for regular checkups to keep them functioning at their best. They should last anywhere from five to fifteen years if they’re properly cared for and checked regularly by your dentist.
A dental crown can be crafted from many different materials, including gold alloys, acrylic, and porcelain bonded to metal. The most durable and comfortable material is usually porcelain.
Our dental technicians can also create a custom bridge using porcelain and/or ceramic that will perfectly match your other teeth. They’ll also consider the color of your tooth to ensure it’s as natural as possible. Click here to contact one.
