Crown & Bridge Treatment Can Restore Your Confident & Functional Smile
At Loganville Family Dentistry in Loganville, we proudly provide our patients crown and bridge treatment to help improve and strengthen their smiles. Crowns and bridges are dental prosthetics used to restore the function, appearance, and health of a person’s smile.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a decayed or damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns are also used to cover misshapen teeth or improve the appearance of discolored teeth.
What is a bridge?
A dental bridge fills the space created by one or more missing teeth and is comprised of two crowns with false teeth between them. It redistributes the workload among your teeth for a more even and uniform bite.
What is involved in getting a crown or bridge?
When getting a crown or bridge, at least two appointments with our dentist will be necessary. Our dentist will take X-rays, examine your teeth, and review your treatment options during the first appointment. If it’s been determined that a crown or bridge is right for you, impressions of your teeth will be taken to create a model of your mouth. This model will be used to make your custom-made crown or bridge. At the second appointment, our dentist will check the fit and bite of your new restoration and cement it into place.
Who is a good candidate for a crown or bridge?
Crowns or bridges may be recommended for people with eroded, broken, fractured, or severely decayed teeth. A large filling with little remaining tooth structure can be fixed with a crown as well as misshapen or discolored teeth. Bridges can be a good alternative to dentures or implants in replacing missing teeth.
