At Goldwater Dental, we offer a variety of restoration solutions for damaged and lost teeth. Amongst the most popular of these are our high-quality porcelain crowns and bridges.
A dental crown is like a cap that protects and covers teeth that are broken, severely decayed, discolored or have heavy fillings. A crown offers protection and stability to the tooth structure and is ideal in cases where the tooth is damaged from outside, but the root structure of the tooth is still intact. Crowns can improve the appearance of your natural teeth and can brighten your smile.
The most common uses for crowns include:
- Replacement of large fillings
- Covering worn or discolored teeth
- Protecting a tooth from further cracking or fracturing
- As anchors to attach a dental bridge to natural teeth
- Protection and strength for a tooth after root canal treatment
A dental bridge is an appliance that spans the gap created by multiple missing teeth in the mouth. By filling this space, a dental bridge prevents the nearby natural teeth from overgrowing into the gap, as this could create bite problems and hamper the normal functioning of the teeth. A bridge is attached by using the natural teeth or crowns as anchors.
If natural teeth are used as anchors for the bridge, they will need to be prepared and shaped to accommodate the crowns, so that the bridge can be securely bonded to these teeth.
We take utmost care to match the color of your restorations to the natural shade of your teeth. Your custom crown or bridge is prepared by taking 3D digital impressions of your teeth for maximum precision and quality.
