Dental Bridges and Crowns
What is a Dental Crown?
Your tooth crown is the part of your tooth that is visible above the gumline. A dental crown is a cap or covering that can be placed directly over a damaged tooth to preserve its remaining structure, restore its appearance, and protect it from further decay or harm. Our dental crowns are made with high-quality white porcelain materials to create a toothlike translucence and sheen. Dental crowns are created using moulds and impressions of your natural teeth to replicate the look of your tooth before it was damaged. Each crown is specifically fitted for each patient to provide optimal comfort and function.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns
- Dental crowns protect the teeth from further damage or decay.
- A porcelain dental crown is crafted using high quality material and looks just like a natural tooth. The people you meet won’t be able to tell that you’re wearing a tooth crown.
- Dental crown placement allows us to save teeth that would normally require extraction and to preserve your remaining tooth structure.
- We can use a dental crown to enhance the appearance of your smile.
Our dental crowns are used in many of our restorative procedures including root canal therapy. We also use dental crowns to create dental bridge appliances for patients who are missing teeth.
Replace Your Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge from Peninsula Dental
A dental bridge is a dental appliance that can be used to provide full smile functionality for patients who have lost a tooth. Dental bridges can be used to replace one tooth, or multiple teeth in a row. To create a dental bridge, we use a series of porcelain crowns. Crowns are attached to the teeth adjacent to the gap, and using these crowns as posts, we can attach esthetic tooth replacements in between to create a full, beautiful smile. Our dental bridges are perfect for patients looking for a cost effective alternative to dental implants or other tooth restorations.
