When Are Dental Crowns and Bridges Used?
Crowns are utilised for a variety of purposes and to solve a wide range of issues, including severely decayed teeth, damaged teeth resulting from root canal treatment, fractured or broken teeth, broken fillings, large, unattractive fillings, and missing teeth. A dental bridge not only improves your looks, but also prevents other teeth from moving out of position and into the space left by a missing tooth.
How does it work?
Dental crowns or bridges can usually be fitted in two or three visits. First, we prepare your natural tooth for the restoration, then impressions of your teeth are taken. Your permanent restoration is created by a custom dental lab using the impressions. It is precisely positioned based on the impression to ensure that your new crown or bridge fits perfectly. Before you leave our office, we fit you with a temporary bridge or crown. It usually takes about two weeks for the lab to produce your new crown or bridge.

Upon receiving your prosthetic restoration from the lab, we will organize a meeting with you to examine the prosthesis and make any necessary alterations. Finally, the restoration will be permanently cemented in place. Before you leave our office, we will give you guidelines on how to care for your new restoration.
