Achieve A Strong & Healthy Smile With Bridges and Crown for Teeth Treatment
At All Smiles in Jacksonville, we know that dental crown and bridge treatment can be a great way to restore your smile's strength, health, and beauty.
How are dental crowns and bridges placed?
After our experienced dentist has evaluated your needs and discussed the details of the procedure, we’ll arrange the first of two appointments. During the first, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the area to prevent any pain or discomfort. Once the tooth or teeth have been prepared, we will take molds of your mouth to create a custom crown or bridge to fit the affected area. We’ll place a temporary restoration in place while your final restoration is being created. Once complete, we’ll have you visit our office again and test the look and fit of the crown or bridge. Once we’ve ensured that it looks and feels great, the prosthesis will be securely bonded in place, restoring beauty and function to your smile.
What are the benefits of dental crown and bridge treatment?
Dental crowns and bridges can restore the strength, size, shape, and appearance of teeth. If underlying issues necessitate a root canal in Jacksonville, we are here to help ensure your teeth are protected and look their best.
Differences Between Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are common dental restorations, but they serve different purposes. Crowns are individual caps placed over damaged teeth to restore their shape, size, and strength, while bridges replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring to neighboring teeth or dental implants.
Crowns are ideal for strengthening weakened teeth, covering large fillings, or improving the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth. On the other hand, bridges are used when one or more adjacent teeth are missing to restore functionality and aesthetics.
While both crowns and bridges are custom-made to fit each patient's mouth, they differ in their applications and procedures. Crowns require preparation of the existing tooth structure, while bridges involve preparation of adjacent teeth to support the prosthetic tooth or teeth.
Who is a good candidate for these restorations?
Many patients with significantly damaged, injured, or missing teeth while be candidates. Of course, it’s necessary that you have a thorough examination performed to ensure that this restoration is right for you.
Considering braces with existing crowns and bridges? Consult a orthodontist and dentist to ensure a comprehensive treatment plan. They'll assess compatibility and provide guidance for maintaining oral health throughout the process.
