What are Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges?
When your tooth is damaged or decayed, the integrity and root of the tooth can often still be saved using dental crowns. Dental crowns are a type of cap or covering that goes directly over the tooth. Our dental crowns protect our patient’s teeth from further damage or cavities and strengthen the tooth structure. Dental crowns function in your mouth just like your regular teeth. Our dental crowns are completely comfortable and natural looking. Dental crowns look great and restore your mouth. If you’ve had broken teeth, a cosmetic enhancement, decayed teeth, fractured fillings, or a root canal, a dental crown might be the best restorative option for you in Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe and Chandler.
Dental crowns come with many benefits:
- Dental crowns restore teeth that have been damaged.
- Dental crowns are strong and durable.
- Dental crowns protect the tooth root and prevent decay.
- Dental crowns allow patients who have damaged their teeth to eat and speak comfortably.
- Dental crowns are perfectly safe and comfortable.
- Porcelain crowns look exactly like your regular teeth.
- Dental crowns restore a tooth’s shape and structure.
Dental crowns can help if you have damaged teeth, but if your tooth is completely missing, you might consider a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a porcelain crown that is secured in the gap left by a missing tooth. It is called a ‘dental bridge’ because the crown is attached to the surrounding teeth. The group of teeth creates a bridge across the gap and closes it. If you’ve lost teeth, dental bridges might be the best option.
At Broadbent Dentistry, our team offers beautifully crafted porcelain crowns and dental bridges. Our porcelain crowns will match your tooth in both shade and shape. When patients need dental bridges or dental crowns, a mold is taken over the original tooth. After we have finished, the mold is sent to the lab where our beautiful porcelain crowns are crafted perfectly to fill the space left by your original tooth. The dental crown placing service can be completed in as little as two appointments.
If you feel like you need dental crowns or dental bridges, contact us at our office and we’ll be happy to answer any questions. Or come in and make an appointment. Don’t let tooth damage keep you from smiling. At Broadbent Dentistry, we can help.
