Questions About Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown represents the top part of a single tooth. It is carefully crafted out of porcelain to resemble your natural-looking tooth.
What are dental crowns used for?
Porcelain crowns are used in several procedures. A porcelain crown can be used to simply fill a gap in your smile. A dental crown, also known as a tooth cap, can cover a cavity that is too big for a filling. This protects your tooth from receiving more damage. Tooth caps can also be used to cover cracked or worn-down teeth to fortify them from further wear. Tooth caps are also used during root canal treatments and dental implant procedures to restore your smile.
How are dental crowns made?
At Wildflower Dental, we provide same-day crowns using the CEREC machine. CEREC is an abbreviation for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” It is a revolutionary dental machine that can create dental crowns in just one appointment. Prior to CEREC, dental crowns used to take up to two weeks to be created in a lab.
At your appointment, CEREC will take 3D photos of your teeth to determine your mouth’s specifications and measurements. Then, it will create your customized dental crown! With CEREC, you can have fantastic results in a fraction of the time it takes to make traditional crowns!
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a dental appliance used to span several missing teeth. In some cases, a dental bridge can be used to replace a single missing tooth. Dental bridges are made to look like real teeth. They rest between two natural teeth, which act as anchors for the bridge.
What are dental bridges used for?
When you have missing teeth, it causes your surrounding teeth to work harder to fill the missing tooth’s role. This overcompensation can cause wear and tear on your intact teeth. It also causes your teeth to shift out of place, altering your natural bite. Besides increasing functionality, dental bridges can also positively enhance the appearance of your smile.
