Richardson Bridges & Crowns
The Building Blocks of a New Smile
If you’re looking for a way to restore flawed, damaged, or decayed teeth, a dental bridge or crown could be just what you need. Our bridge and crown services at Richardson Dentistry utilize the best resources and techniques in the dental business to provide you with a natural-looking and radiant smile. Crowns and bridges can be a great way to shield your tooth from further damage and replace missing teeth. If you leave your decayed tooth untreated, it can cause a multitude of oral health risks.
What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is used to provide support by capping your tooth with a new surface to increase stability. Unlike dental fillings, crowns can be a more comprehensive option for correcting common tooth issues.
A crown is most often ideal for dental problems such as:
- Teeth with extensive decay
- Worn out teeth
- Severely discolored teeth
- Failed dental fillings
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Teeth with root canal
When a crown is recommended, our dentist will prepare your tooth by removing all the decay and creating an impression of your teeth to send to the lab. During the same visit, we’ll place a temporary crown in your mouth while your crown is developed. When the crown is ready, we’ll remove the temporary crown and use a strong adhesive to bond the new crown to the underlying tooth.
What Are Dental Bridges?
When you have missing teeth, it’s important to fill the gaps as soon as possible to avoid common complications. When spaces are left between teeth, the surrounding structure no longer has the support and your other teeth will begin to gradually shift, which can cause problems in your bite and overall health.
A bridge is most often used for patients seeking treatment to:
- Replace missing teeth
- Prevent the shifting of teeth
- Maintain facial appearance and shape
- Restore chewing and speaking abilities
- Replace a removable partial
