What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are highly versatile and attractive restorations that are designed to cover the remaining structure of a single tooth. This approach has two distinct benefits – not only is the original tooth better preserved, but its original shape, strength, and aesthetic appearance is replenished. Dr. Ornelas may recommend new, customized crowns in the following cases:
- When a tooth is badly decayed
- When a tooth has is cracked/fractured
- When a tooth is weakened and may break in the near-future
- When a tooth has a significant cosmetic imperfection
In most cases, the design and creation of a brand-new crown will take two appointments. After adjusting the tooth’s shape and capturing impressions, Dr. Ornelas will send this information to a trusted dental laboratory and fit patients for a temporary crown in the interim for protection. Once our Crown Point office receives the new, permanent crown, you’ll return for the final placement and any minor adjustments to ensure the most successful and stable fit possible.
What are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are named as such because they’re designed to literally “bridge” the gap left by consecutive missing teeth. Traditional bridges are anchored in place through the use of dental crowns, which are attached to healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Today, though, Dr. Ornelas strongly recommends implant-retained dental bridges as a much healthier and more stable alternative. Instead of crowns, two placed dental implants will provide ample support that doesn’t require the reduction of natural dental structure.
