Dental Bridges and Crowns
Dental Bridges and Crowns are wonderful treatments that have helped patients across the globe in various situations to improve the quality of their oral health. If you are not exactly sure what a dental bridge or a dental crown is, we hope the following information may be helpful:
What are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a tooth cap that is used to protect, beautify, and increase functionality of a tooth that has either been damaged in the past, or that may need a little additional protection to last for the years to come. Dental crowns are also frequently used in restorative dentistry as both support devices and parts of dental devices.
Dental crowns at Westlake Dentistry are made of high quality porcelain, and custom designed for the patient who needs them. Our porcelain crowns look like natural teeth, and are strong and durable so that they can serve you and your smile for years.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a dental device that is used to replace one or more (usually multiple) missing teeth and acts to bridge the gap left behind. Usually dental bridges are anchored on either side by two dental crowns, which provide some of the structure necessary for the bridge.
Before you receive a dental bridge, our team will carefully take molds of your mouth, to make sure that your dental bridge will fit your mouth perfectly. After the dental bridge has been created, our team will place it in your mouth and fill in the gap left behind by your missing teeth.
Dental bridges from Westlake Dentistry are designed to look like natural teeth, so you don’t have to worry about how they look. Our dental bridges are also made to be highly functional, and can be used like natural teeth.
