No matter your needs, Hampton Dental has the solutions you need to restore a healthy, functional smile.
Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are widely used in restorative dentistry due to their versatility. They are a custom-made cap that is placed over a tooth. Crowns can provide an added layer of protection for weakened teeth, like those that suffer strain from bruxism or have large areas of decay. They are commonly used to repair a tooth that has suffered a significant break or fracture.
Due to their versatility, it is not uncommon for them to be used in combination with other treatments as well, such as root canal therapy or a dental bridge. Now, crowns not only provide restorative benefits but also improved aesthetics.
They are now crafted from all-ceramic material to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth. As a result, they blend in seamlessly when you smile while functioning as a real tooth. This also allows them to be used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of a discolored or abnormally shaped tooth.
To benefit from a crown, your tooth must be reshaped to allow the crown to fit over it. Impressions of your tooth are used to design the custom-made restoration in a dental lab. In just a couple of weeks, you will have a healthy, functional tooth to save your smile. With the right aftercare, they can last for 10 years or longer before needing to be replaced.
Do I Need a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge in Oak Cliff is the most convenient and conventional solution to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. An impression of the space is taken to create a bridge of prosthetic teeth that are made to match your natural ones. The device is then held in place by attaching dental crowns to the adjacent teeth. This provides it with support to closely feel like your real teeth.
A dental bridge has the potential to last for about 5 years before needing to be replaced. You can promote its longevity by maintaining your oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly. If you want to enjoy a more permanent solution, ask us how an implant-supported bridge can help you.
