Crowns & Bridges: Turn Back the Clock for Your Smile
When it comes to repairing and even replacing missing teeth, dental crowns and bridges can create some truly stunning results when utilized by a dentist like Dr. Gus Bal. He has used these treatments to literally help thousands of patients eat, speak, and smile again, and whether you have damaged or missing teeth, he can do the exact same for you.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is fitted over and fully encapsulates a damaged tooth. It can be used to:
- Repair damaged teeth
- Cosmetically enhance teeth
- Make small or misshapen teeth appear more uniform
- Close gaps between teeth
- Help correct bite alignment issues
What is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge, on the other hand, is a quick and effective way to replace a row of consecutive missing teeth. It consists of three main parts: two dental crowns placed on the teeth at either end of the gap in the smile and replacement teeth that are bonded to them to fill in the space. They can restore the appearance of the smile as well as increase a patient’s chewing and speaking ability. They can also be instrumental in preventing the remaining teeth from shifting into the open gap, which happens often.
Both of these treatments take about two visits to get, and we’ll use only the most natural-looking and durable materials to fabricate them.
