Dental crowns are a thin top or cap that can be placed on top of a tooth that has experienced significant decay. It can help repair damaged teeth, misshapen teeth, and teeth that are in need of strengthening. Dental crowns are usually made out of composite resin, ceramic, or porcelain. These materials are sturdy, strong, and blend into your smile flawlessly. They can give the look of natural teeth and once they’re put in, you’ll forget all about them!
Getting a dental crown made is a simple process. Your dentist will help clean and prepare your tooth and then a mold or digital scan will be made to help create a personalized crown that will fit your tooth perfectly. Once the crown has been created, it is cemented to your natural tooth. Dental crowns can last up to 15 years or more when cared for properly. Be sure and brush and floss your teeth daily to make sure that your crown lasts for years to come.
Dental bridges are a form of false tooth that can fill in the gaps in your smile. Dental bridges can be permanent or removable depending on your specific wants and needs. False teeth are created and then secured to your surrounding natural teeth using a strong metal base covered in fleshy colored plastic so as to blend into your smile flawlessly.
Getting a bridge made involves getting molds or impressions made of your teeth and then working with your dentist to create a bridge that’s made just for you.
