Do you have missing teeth? Perhaps some of your teeth are worn down or damaged. Tooth loss and damage can take a toll on your oral health, and getting your smile back in fantastic shape can seem confusing at times. Dental crowns and bridges offer patients fully functional restored smiles.
What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?
Imagine a damaged tooth that lacks structural integrity but still isn’t due for an extraction or root canal treatment. Dental crowns can save a damaged tooth after your Bastrop, TX dentist prepares it for crowning.
- Dental crowns cover existing teeth and seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile. Generally consisting of porcelain, resin, or ceramics, dental crowns cover a damaged tooth. They also cover cosmetic tooth flaws, cap dental implants, and secure dental bridges to healthy teeth.
- Dental Bridges consist of restoring teeth between dental crowns. The crowns cap teeth, allowing the restoring teeth to close the smile gap.
At CS Family Dentistry, we create custom dental crowns and bridges that fit our patient’s smiles and allow them to get back to using their teeth without any hassle.
When Might I Consider Dental Crowns or Bridges?
During an initial consultation, we can help patients determine if they are a candidate for dental crowns or bridges. Still, generally speaking, we can use dental crowns or bridges in connection with the following:
- Cracked teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Decaying teeth
- Structurally compromised teeth
- Missing teeth
- Dental implants
- Root canals
