Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges in Jacksonville, TX
Dental crowns and dental bridges repair damaged or missing teeth. Your Jacksonville, TX dentists at All Smiles usually recommend a dental crown if damage is severe and the tooth cannot support a regular filling. Bridges or fixed partial dentures are dental crowns linked together to fill a gap left by a missing tooth. Both are indirect restorations, meaning that they have to be designed in the laboratory and fitted later.
If you need a crown or a bridge but are too busy for repeat appointments, we recommend one-visit restorations made with CEREC technology. Come see us in the morning and leave a few hours later with brand new, permanent teeth!
Traditional dental crowns used to take weeks to design and create. The dentist takes impressions of your teeth and uses the mold to create the permanent dental crowns Jacksonville. This can take long, especially if there’s a high volume of work at the lab. At All Smiles, Dr. Folden and Dr. Westbrook can complete tooth crown procedure or restoration in a single appointment. No impressions needed or temporary crowns to wear!
After the tooth is prepared, your dentist will scan your teeth and take 3D images. The images are sent to the CEREC computer and tweaked to create an exact replica of the restored tooth. The CEREC machine then carves out the crown from a porcelain block. In just a few minutes, the crown is ready to be placed in your mouth. Treatment is usually completed in 1-2 hours.
We also use CEREC crowns to create stunning, durable dental bridges in one visit. Dental bridge procedure is the same: tooth preparation, scanning, modeling and milling. You can leave on the same day with a new permanent bridge.
Studies show that CEREC restorations are just as effective and durable as traditional restorations. Learn more about one-visit dental crowns and bridges. Call 903-625-9297 or click here to make an appointment with Jacksonville, TX dentists.
