Having damaged or missing teeth is not uncommon. Many people deal with one or the other, but that’s not a state you have to dwell in.
At Robert Matlach Dental, we don’t want our patients to experience any of the physical or emotional pain that can come with damaged or missing teeth. This is why we offer dental crowns and bridges to our patients.
What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?
Tooth crowns are the white portions of the teeth that we can see above the gum line. When those tooth crowns are chipped, damaged, or broken, we can apply a dental crown to act as a “tooth cap” that lowers the risk for further damage.
A dental crown allows the tooth to function like it would normally without causing pain or discomfort when you chew and speak. Instead of suffering from a compromised tooth crown, you can enjoy the full function of your bite again!
Where a dental crown is primarily used to restore the structure of a tooth, a dental bridge is a solution for missing teeth.
A dental bridge is a tooth replacement option that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. This is done by nestling a replacement into the gap. It is secured in place by dental crowns that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap.
Porcelain Crowns and Dental Bridges at Robert Matlach Dental
We use materials that replicate the look and feel of natural teeth when we make dental crowns and dental bridges. We often recommend restorations that are made from porcelain to capture the natural look you want from your dental work.
Porcelain crowns reflect light in the same way that your natural teeth did, so they do not draw unwanted attention to your smile. We use this same consideration when producing a dental bridge for you. We do not want anyone to notice your dental work— only the beauty of your smile!
