Crowns and bridges are restorations that can be used to repair or replace missing and damaged teeth. At Plantation Dental, we provide high-quality porcelain crowns and bridges that look, feel and function like healthy, natural teeth.
Plantation Dental specializes in helping our patients who have damaged or missing teeth. Using high-quality, custom-made bridges or crowns, we can give you back the ability to chew, speak and smile!
Dental bridges are permanent, fixed prosthetic teeth used to fill in small gaps where teeth have been lost. If you are missing up to three teeth in a row, then a bridge can be affixed to the neighboring teeth. They are secured by placing crowns on healthy surrounding teeth and anchoring the bridge to them. Made from porcelain, the bridge will look completely natural and can be made to match your existing teeth. By filling a gap with a bridge, you can keep your existing teeth from moving out of alignment and prevent a droopy smile.
A crown is a covering or cap that is shaped just like your natural tooth. Crowns are often used when a single tooth is severely damaged or is missing.
A crown can act as a protective covering over a severely decayed or broken tooth. They are also used over a tooth after root canal treatment.
Both bridges and crowns are custom-made for you. At your initial visit, the tooth or teeth will be prepared and an impression taken. You’ll need to schedule a second visit once your restoration is ready to be installed. Keep brushing and flossing and see your dentist regularly. With good care, your crowns and bridges can last for many years.
