We understand that it can be upsetting to severely damage or lose a tooth. The good news is that the team at Broadway Dental can provide a top-quality crown or bridge to restore your beautiful smile.
Crowns and bridges are two restoration methods we offer for treating damaged and lost teeth. This is very important because a complete set of healthy teeth are crucial for basic functions like chewing and speaking. Teeth also play a huge role in forming a person’s smile, and these restoration techniques allow us to fill in gaps and repair unsightly damage. Since these are custom-designed restorations, a patient must make a minimum of two visits to receive a crown or a bridge. This is so that the restoration can be specially built in a dental laboratory. Each crown and bridge is specifically modeled based on the patient’s existing teeth so that it blends in seamlessly. This extra effort is necessary for providing patients with the best possible service.
Our crowns and bridges are built using the finest materials available. We offer crowns and bridges built from porcelain, a material known for its resemblance to natural teeth and its superb performance. Anyone who sees the restoration will assume that it is a healthy natural tooth, and they will have no idea that there was ever any damage. The recipient will also have no trouble with chewing food or speaking clearly. We are confident that almost anyone who has severely damaged or lost tooth can achieve great results with our crowns and bridges.
A dental crown can either restore a damaged tooth or replace a lost one. When a crown is used to repair damage, it will “cap” the existing structure and serve as the bulk of the tooth. If it is replacing a tooth, then it will be installed on top of a dental implant that is inserted into the jawbone.
Every permanent dental crown we provide is crafted with the utmost precision and attention to detail to ensure that it fits in nicely with the existing teeth. Patients also appreciate the tremendous performance of our crowns when it comes to chewing tough foods. Crowns can be cared for in the same manner as a regular tooth.
Bridges are used when a patient has lost one or more teeth. This restoration consists of replacement teeth that are typically supported by abutment crowns on the adjacent teeth or by implants that have been placed in the jaw. This type of restoration is called a bridge because the replacement teeth “bridge” the gap that was created when teeth were lost. Each component of a bridge is custom-built and carefully designed so that they can provide strong performance and a natural look. Depending on the type, bridges can be permanently secured or removable for easier cleaning.
