We understand that dealing with damaged, decayed, or missing teeth can be challenging, but with our restorative treatment options, we can help you restore your oral health and confidence

Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental crowns for teeth are among the most effective options for restoring significantly damaged or decayed teeth. They restore both the appearance and function of the tooth and provide for long-term oral health.

Crowns are dental caps placed over a damaged tooth for added strength and protection. They are typically made of porcelain or other ceramic materials for their durability and appearance. Some enamel is removed from the affected tooth to provide a solid base for the crown to attach to, and it is then cemented in place.

Once protected by the dental crown, the interior of the tooth is safe from further decay, infection, and other complications. You can get back to your life and enjoy long-term oral health with the right oral crown.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are an excellent way to keep your natural teeth intact and avoid extraction. By preserving as much of the natural tooth as possible, dental crowns provide substantial long-term oral health benefits and allow for comfortable eating and speaking while helping to maintain a healthy and functional smile.

Dental crowns are customized to suit your smile and look natural so you can feel confident in your appearance. They also protect your teeth from further damage and alleviate long-term pain or sensitivity.

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?

Dental crowns are a versatile treatment option that can suit a wide range of situations. The team here at Casa Dental will evaluate your needs and determine if a dental crown is the right solution for you or if another option might be better.

Tooth decay is one of the most common reasons for dental crowns. As it progresses, it can weaken a tooth and impact its integrity, which is also the case when large fillings are needed.

Physical damage, such as cracks or chips, can also require a dental crown. Root canal treatment often calls for a crown afterward.

Understanding Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is similar to a dental crown in many ways. Both are made of porcelain or other ceramic materials. However, a dental bridge is suitable for replacing a tooth that is missing entirely, while a crown requires the tooth to serve as a foundation. Because of this, a dental bridge requires two healthy teeth on either side for support.

A dental bridge consists of two dental crowns on either side of the gap with another tooth in the middle. The bridge is attached to the two supporting teeth, which not only provides a strong foundation but also prevents other teeth from shifting into the gap.

Like crowns, dental bridges are customized to match your natural teeth so they will blend seamlessly with your smile. They enhance the appearance and functionality of your smile while also promoting your long-term oral health. With a dental bridge, you can enjoy a healthier and more confident smile.

Types of dental bridges

There are many types of dental bridges, all of which provide effective solutions for different situations. Traditional dental bridges are, as described above, a group of replacement teeth that span the gap over a missing tooth. They’re particularly effective in areas near the back of the mouth, where surrounding teeth exert a lot of pressure.

A cantilever bridge is supported by just one healthy tooth. It provides an option when there is only one suitable tooth beside the gap left behind. A Maryland bridge doesn’t require removing enamel from surrounding teeth to place crowns on them. Instead, it uses a metal or porcelain framework that attaches around the surrounding teeth and holds it in place.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges provide an effective solution for replacement teeth when the tooth is entirely missing rather than simply badly damaged. They can successfully restore your normal chewing and speaking ability and provide a complete and beautiful-looking smile.

If you leave the gap left by a missing tooth open, other teeth will shift into it. Eventually, your teeth will be severely misaligned and require orthodontic treatment. A dental bridge can avoid this, as it provides the necessary pressure to stop other teeth from shifting.

Good experience with wisdom tooth removal. Doctors are very friendly and make you feel relaxed. Prince at the front desk is very helpful. The only drawback is they don't have free parking.
