Dental Bridges and Crowns in Gordon

If you are missing teeth or are experiencing pain and/or discomfort caused by cavities, tooth damage or decay, your treatment may include getting a prosthetic such as a dental crown or bridge. These dental restorations help patients in numerous ways. They protect your existing teeth, restore the look and function of your teeth and can really make a difference in a patient’s confidence as well as their overall health.

Crowns

A crown, also known as a dental cap, is a type of dental restoration that is custom-made to completely cap or encircle a tooth or dental implant. It may be needed when a large cavity or damage threatens the health of a tooth or following a procedure that leaves the inside of your tooth exposed such as a root canal. A crown should look and feel like it is part of a natural, healthy tooth and can be made from different materials including ceramic, resin, metal, or porcelain-fused-to-metal.

Bridges

A bridge is a prosthetic that permanently replaces missing teeth with false teeth. In some cases, it can be an alternative to partial dentures. The bridge is fixed in place, attached to the healthy teeth on either side of a gap. Dental bridges are usually made of porcelain, metal, a combination, or zirconia.

What To Expect: Prosthetic and Restorative Dentistry at Atria Dental®

Receiving prosthetic and restorative dental treatments is a process that takes two (or more) visits to the dentist. Any infections, decay or dental issues need to be treated first before any prosthetic device can be used.
In your initial consultation, the dentist examines your teeth to determine if the treatment is suitable for you. They may take x-rays or measurements. Next, they prepare your teeth for the device by gently filing them to make space. Sedative alternatives are made available so you do not feel pain or discomfort. Once reshaped, an impression is taken of the tooth/area to make a model of your crown/bridge. A temporary crown or bridge is fitted while the permanent prosthetic is made.
