There is always a solution for any dental problem. When tooth decay, cracked teeth or missing teeth become a problem, it’s time for a dental crown or bridge. Both are simple solutions that can be completed easily by a cosmetic dentist at Acadia Dental. The process for each procedure is quick, efficient and effective.
These are also referred to as a cap. The function of a dental crown protects your tooth while also making it look full, bright and new. At Acadia Dental, our crowns are made specifically for each patient from impressions of your teeth. The following types of dental crowns are available to our patients:
- Temporary crowns
- Metal crowns
- Stainless steel crowns
- Porcelain crowns
Dental crowns are an excellent alternative to cover broken, misshapen or discolored teeth. They are also used to protect larger fillings that lack sufficient tooth structure. Undergoing the root canal process ends with the insertion of a dental crown and many people opt to protect weakened teeth from further deteriorating with the addition of a crown.
Having a gap between any of your teeth can do more than just affect the way you look. It can also make for issues when it comes to eating. Over the course of time, the teeth in your mouth will start to shift and those open spaces and could adversely impact your bite. Gum disease is also a real concern when these gaps are not attended to accordingly.
All of those problems could be alleviated with the addition of a dental bridge, which bridges the space where a tooth is missing. There is no worry of bridges falling out since they are cemented in place and connected to each in the open space. The process involves trimming down the two connecting teeth and capping them with a crown. A replacement tooth is then inserted between those two.
Bridges are available in porcelain, metal or ceramic. An experienced dentist at Acadia can fit you with a dental bridge that will make chewing much easier and restore a bright smile to your face.
