Are you missing teeth, or have damaged teeth that need repair? Our advanced treatments at Laguna Pavilion Dental allow you to restore missing and damaged teeth for a healthy, beautiful smile.
You have options when it comes to repairing and replacing missing or damaged teeth, and two of these options include dental bridges and crowns. At Laguna Pavilion Dental, we work with you one-on-one to determine the best treatments for your smile, whether you need to replace missing teeth with a dental bridge or repair fractured or decayed teeth with a dental crown.
What to Expect With a Dental Bridge
A dental bridge is a dental restoration in which one or more missing teeth in a row are replaced with a single device. Here’s how it works: the neighboring teeth on either side of the gap are prepared to support dental crowns, which will support an artificial tooth or teeth that fill in the space left by your missing teeth. The restoration is all one unit and is permanently bonded to your natural neighboring teeth.
With a dental bridge, your smile will still look and feel natural, and you’ll be able to take care of your bridge just as you would your natural teeth. Dental bridges are durable, effective, and can last for over a decade with the right care from your dentist.
Applications for Porcelain Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are versatile restorations for damaged teeth. In addition to supporting a dental bridge, some of the uses for dental crowns include:
- Repairing a tooth that’s been cracked
- Complete a dental implant
- Restore teeth that have been broken
- Fix teeth that have been affected by bruxism (teeth grinding)
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Correct the appearance of misshapen teeth
- Support a tooth with extensive decay after a root canal or filling
For patients that qualify, dental crowns are strong, stain-resistant, and can last for many years. To find out if a dental crown would be the best form of treatment for your particular case, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sattout today!
