Dental implants are one of our most popular and long-term restorative dental care options. Dental implants are titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone. Once these screws have fused with the jawbone, our dentist will cap the implant with a dental crown. Crowns are made to match the color and shape of your existing teeth for a perfect fit and a seamless smile. For rear teeth and molars that receive substantial wear and tear, our dentist may recommend a metal crown that is capped with ceramic for a natural yet durable look. Our dentist works closely with each patient to custom-make the right cap or crown for his or her teeth. We want all our patients to enjoy natural-looking smiles that last for years to come.
Just because a tooth is cracked or chipped does not mean it needs to be removed. Dental crowns are beneficial with patients who have weakened teeth due to decay or cracks. Depending on the condition of your teeth, our dentist may recommend dental crowns to return your damaged tooth to its original shape and also protect the tooth from future damage. Following a root canal, dental caps and crowns can restore your smile to its natural aesthetic. Our goal is to preserve the natural appearance of your tooth as much as possible with enhancing your smile’s overall appearance.
If you are missing just one tooth and do not wish to have a dental implant, then you may be a good candidate for a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a crown that will literally “bridge” the gap between two teeth. The bridge is held in place by dental caps on the neighboring teeth. A dental bridge is an immediate solution to a missing tooth. However, dental bridges do require good oral hygiene in order to prevent infection or gum disease. If you are considering a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth, talk to our restorative dentist about whether this choice is right for your long-term oral health needs.
Cracking or chipping a tooth while eating food, playing sports, or simply as the result of an accident injury can be a frustrating and painful experience. The good news is that with our Brentwood restorative dentistry services, we will have your smile looking better than ever as quickly as possible! Dental caps and crowns, porcelain veneers, and dental bridges, and dental implants are long-term solutions that will conceal any imperfections in your smile.
