What You Need to Know About Dental Crowns and Bridges

Missing or severely damaged teeth can impact not only your smile but also your ability to chew and speak comfortably. Thankfully, dental crowns and bridges offer a reliable solution, restoring both function and aesthetics. At Mount Vernon Smile Design, we’re dedicated to providing exceptional care and helping you achieve a healthy, confident smile through advanced dental restorations.

Understanding Dental Crowns and Bridges: Your Options for a Complete Smile

Dental Crowns:

  • A cap-like restoration is placed over a weakened or damaged tooth to reinforce its structure, improve its appearance, or replace a large filling.
  • Ideal for teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, suffered significant fractures, or require cosmetic enhancement.
  • Can be cemented onto natural teeth or dental implants for missing tooth replacement.

Dental Bridges:

  • Bridge the gap created by missing teeth, restoring your smile’s natural functionality and aesthetics.
  • Comprise one or more replacement teeth supported by crowns cemented onto neighboring teeth.
  • Offer a natural-looking and stable solution for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.

Achieving Seamless Harmony: Appearance and Function in Perfect Balance

At Mount Vernon Smile Design, we prioritize crafting dental crowns and bridges that seamlessly blend with your existing teeth. Our skilled dentists meticulously design each element to:

  • Match the color and shade of your natural teeth for a flawless, natural-looking smile.
  • Restore optimal chewing and speaking functionality for enhanced oral health and confidence.
  • Provide long-lasting durability and stability for years of worry-free enjoyment.

The Road to a Complete Smile: What to Expect with Dental Crowns and Bridges

Typically, the process involves two dental visits:

1. Consultation and Preparation:

  • Your Mount Vernon Smile Design dentist will carefully examine your teeth and take impressions for custom-crafted crowns or bridges.
  • Depending on the situation, a temporary crown might be placed for protection until the permanent restoration is ready.

2. Placement and Finalization:

  • Upon receiving your custom-made crowns or bridges, our dentist ensures a precise fit and secures them permanently.
  • You’ll receive detailed instructions on caring for your restorations to maintain their long-lasting beauty and function.
