In her care at The International Center for Dental Excellence in Fort Lauderdale, FL, you are assured of dental crowns & bridges made with safe, biocompatible materials for restorations that look natural and promote whole-body wellness.
Dental crowns & bridges – Fort Lauderdale, FL dentist explains the difference
A dental crown looks like a tooth, but it is hollow. The crown is meticulously designed from impressions of your mouth and fabricated by a dental ceramist and shaded to blend beautifully with existing teeth. The crown is cemented over prepared tooth structure, with the natural root remaining in place.
Porcelain crowns are typically used to:
- Restore a tooth with a large area of decay or a piece broken off
- Repair a tooth after the removal of a large filling
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy, which may compromise strength of tooth structure
- Finish a stand-alone dental implant to replace a missing tooth
- Improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth
Dental bridges contain two crowns with an artificial tooth (or several as in the case of a front-teeth bridge) between them. The crowns are fitted to teeth on each side of the gap, providing an anchor for the bridge. While dental implants are becoming a preferred option for tooth replacement, some situations still call for dental bridges.
The condition of your teeth play a large role in your overall health. Keeping this in mind, Dr. Cintron uses nontoxic, mercury-free, and metal-free materials. These caps and crowns for teeth and tooth bridges are designed to strengthen and support your natural dentition.
