Dental bridges and crowns are tried and true methods that create complete and strong smiles. Dental bridges and dental crowns can be used in many instances, including a chipped tooth, missing teeth, or teeth that are damaged, weak, or unappealing, dental bridges or crowns could be the perfect solution.
A dental crown is an appliance that fits over the visible portion of the tooth. A dental crown can be made of ceramic, gold, or porcelain fused to metal. Dental crowns protect and strengthen the tooth, and they can improve a tooth’s appearance.
If you have a chipped tooth or one that discolored, misshapen, broken or weak from decay or trauma, a dental crown could save your smile. Come see Dr. Lesko to determine if dental crowns are the right way for you to restore the look and strength of your teeth.
CEREC Same-Day Tooth Crowns
Here at The Fort Collins Dentist, we are proud to offer CEREC same-day crowns for your dental restoration convenience. CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an amazing technology that allows us to design your tooth crown, mill it, and place it in your mouth all in one visit!
With CEREC same-day tooth crowns, you won’t need to be fitted with a temporary crown while you wait for a permanent crown to be created in an offsite dental laboratory. You can get your permanent, natural-looking tooth crowns placed in the same visit that you find out you need them.
If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can fill in the gaps. Missing teeth could cause the remaining teeth to shift, resulting in a bad bite and a crooked smile. To prevent these problems, and to make it easier to chew and speak again, you need a dental bridge to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are made up of one or more dental crowns or dental implants that are anchored on either side of the missing tooth. The pontic, or replacement tooth, is anchored down by these dental crowns or implants into the gap where teeth are missing.
A dental bridge is a permanent appliance that will restore your smile to its proper appearance and function.
