A dental bridge is a series of crowns that have been attached together in order to “bridge” a gap left by a missing tooth. Dental bridges are a comfortable and affordable way to replace a missing tooth. To replace a missing tooth with a dental bridge, first the adjacent teeth will need to be prepared for crowns. Once the teeth are prepared, the adjacent teeth will serve as anchor points for the bridge, and enough crowns to bridge the gap will be cemented between them.
Dental bridges are an excellent procedure for patients who have lost a tooth and want to restore their smile and the functionality of their teeth. To find out more about dental bridges or porcelain crowns, contact us at our office today. We look forward to hearing from you.
A crown is a type of covering that can encase an entire tooth and restore it to its original shape and size. A crown may be necessary if your tooth has become broken or fractured, or your tooth has decayed beyond what a filling could fix. Crowns may also be necessary due to cosmetic enhancements or after root canals. Before crowns were available, teeth that were severely damaged or decayed had to be completely extracted. Now we can save damaged teeth and protect their tooth structure with careful attention, skill and professional dental crowns.
At Leading Smiles, our crowns are made with a high quality porcelain that mimics the natural translucence and color of natural teeth. Before a crown is crafted, Dr. Sapienza will take a mold of your original tooth, and the crown will be custom crafted to provide perfect occlusion and the right shape and size.
A dental veneer is a thin piece of tooth shaped material that can be bonded to the front of your tooth to enhance that tooth’s appearance. Dental veneers from Leading Smiles are versatile and can be used to correct many different types of damage or tooth defects.
You may want veneers if your teeth are:
