Dental Crowns & Bridges
A dental crown is a custom-made tooth-shaped “cap” that is able to restore a struggling tooth to its original shape, size, and appearance all at the same time. It simply fits on top of a damaged tooth and can be made to completely blend with the smile. Also, we can use two crowns bonded to prosthetic teeth to literally “bridge” the gap between one or more missing teeth in a row.
CEREC® Same Day Crowns
Thanks to CEREC technology, we can fully repair your smile with a dental crown in just one easy visit. Most other offices require at least two appointments, a messy impression, and a week spent with a temporary crown to accomplish this, but with CEREC, the entire process is now streamlined. You simply come to see us, and our team will use CAD/CAM technology to design and mill your crown while you sit and relax in the chair. After we place it on your tooth, you’ll be ready to go. It’s just that easy!
Every single tooth has a small amount of soft tissue inside it called the dental pulp, and this is where the sensitive nerve of each tooth is located. When this pulp is damaged by either decay or injury, it can cause an extreme amount of dental pain and even cause a tooth to die! To save the tooth and relieve your pain, your dentist can perform a root canal. Thanks to modern dental techniques and anesthetics, this procedure is now nothing to fear. With us, it will always be the solution to your pain and never the cause!
While our number one goal is to help our patients preserve all of their natural teeth for as long as possible, sometimes, the best course of treatment may involve removing one. This is often the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be restored with a filling or crown
- Gum disease has deteriorated the underlying bone supporting a tooth
- Room needs to be created for a denture/orthodontic treatment
- The wisdom teeth have become painful, impacted (stuck), or infected
