Restoring Your Smile: Dental Crowns and Bridges
Missing or Damaged Teeth? Crowns and Bridges Can Help!
At ThoroughDent Smiles, we understand the impact missing or damaged teeth can have on your smile and confidence. Fortunately, dental crowns and bridges offer a reliable solution to restore your smile and oral function. This guide explores what you need to know about these restorations.
What are Dental Crowns and Bridges?
- Crowns: Cap-like restorations that cover and strengthen a damaged or weakened tooth. Ideal for large fillings, root canals, or cosmetic enhancement.
- Bridges: Multiple restorations connected to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges attach to natural teeth (abutments) or implants for support.
Benefits of Crowns and Bridges
- Improved Aesthetics: Restore a natural-looking, attractive smile.
- Enhanced Functionality: Improve chewing, biting, and speaking abilities.
- Increased Confidence: Boost your self-esteem and social interactions.
- Durability: Crowns and bridges can last for many years with proper care.
How Do They Look and Feel?
ThoroughDent Smiles prioritizes a seamless look and natural feel. Each crown and bridge is custom-made to match your surrounding teeth in color, shape, and size. You’ll enjoy a natural appearance and comfortable function.
The Procedure: What to Expect
- Consultation: Discuss your needs and explore treatment options.
- Impressions: Precise molds are taken of your teeth to create custom restorations.
- Temporary Crown/Bridge (Optional): This may be used while your permanent restoration is crafted.
- Placement: Your dentist will carefully secure the final crown or bridge for optimal fit and function.
