Missing or damaged teeth can deteriorate your quality of life as well as your confidence. With dental crowns and bridges, Texas Dental will restore your smile, allowing you to eat, speak, and laugh without any pain or embarrassment.
Our dental crowns will save the integrity of your damaged tooth, preventing you from losing it altogether, while our dental bridges provide an easy tooth-replacement option to revitalize your smile.
Dental crowns have many benefits, including the restorative capabilities to support and save a tooth that has been damaged. Left untreated, damaged teeth will eventually need to be extracted, which means either leaving a gap in your teeth or getting a dental implant or bridge. In order to save your tooth, Dr. Miranda will do a root canal on the damaged tooth, then fuse a natural-looking, porcelain dental crown on top to protect the damaged tooth.
A dental crown looks and functions just like a natural tooth, and you likely won’t even notice it’s there. To take care of a dental crown, you only need to floss and brush as you would your natural tooth. The benefits of dental crowns include:
- Protecting a worn or damaged tooth
- Anchoring a dental bridge
- Restoring a tooth after a root canal
Dental crowns, also known as caps, will be produced to be a match of your previous tooth. Your crown will be crafted to match the same shape, size, and color so it doesn’t stand out from your other teeth.
If you have a missing tooth, it can affect the appearance of your face as well as the way you chew and talk. Missing teeth can be painful but also embarrassing. Your teeth may drift when you are missing a tooth, causing misalignment and bone loss. Dental bridges correct these problems by replacing your missing tooth.
A dental bridge is one or more replacement teeth that is anchored by one or more crowns on each side. The teeth on either side of the bridge are known as abutment teeth, and they support the bridge and the crown that is used to replace the missing tooth. The benefits of dental bridges include:
- Restore your ability to speak and chew properly
- Correctly distribute the bite force in your mouth
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Prevent teeth from drifting our of place
- Revitalize your confidence and your smile
