Teeth come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes that leaves patients with specific teeth that are weaker and more prone to damage or tooth loss than others. When that’s the case, Corte Madera Dentist has you covered with our porcelain dental crowns and bridges.
What Are Porcelain Crowns?
Dental crowns are used to completely cover or encapsulate a tooth or dental implant. They are often used to either replace missing teeth entirely—as in the case of a dental implant—or to protect a tooth that is badly damaged from decay.
The crown is attached to either the dental implant or the weaker tooth with dental cement, keeping it securely in place.
Porcelain crowns are designed to look exactly like a natural tooth and can be adjusted to blend in with your other teeth. Because crowns can be flawlessly designed, they are often recommended as a great restoration option for front teeth.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth in your smile. They are created by having one or more full porcelain crowns secured in your mouth to “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth.
Dental bridges can be secured in multiple ways. They can either be secured to the teeth on both sides of the gap using sturdy dental cement small crowns to prevent extra wear on your natural teeth. Bridges may also be restored on top of an existing dental implant in your jaw.
Whichever restoration method you choose for your dental bridges, we promise to use our best porcelain to make your bridge as sturdy and aesthetically pleasing as possible
Benefits of Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns in general are a great option for preserving existing teeth or replacing missing teeth, as we’ve mentioned above. However, they have some other benefits, including:
Affordability | Porcelain crowns cost less than crowns made from silver or gold.
Durability | They are known to last 10 years or longer, with proper care.
Great Aesthetic Results | These types of crowns won’t leave your smile flashing with hints of gold or silver. Instead, the crowns will be matched perfectly to the exact color of your teeth.
You will love your new crowns!
