You can feel like a king with a dental crown or bridge from Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX. If you’re missing a tooth or have a broken tooth, you may feel funny when you smile. This can make you far less confident in the workplace, destroy your self-esteem on social outings, and generally leave you feeling unhappy.
But our team of skilled cosmetic dentists don’t want you to be unhappy. We want you to be proud of your smile, and have all the confidence you deserve. For this reason we offer dental crowns and bridges, so you don’t have to go one more day feeling ashamed about your smile. In today’s blog post, we’re going to provide you with some valuable information about dental crowns and bridges.
Porcelain crowns are like, well, a crown, to cover any flawed or damaged teeth. They look and function like health, natural teeth. After removing part of your existing damaged tooth, we simply bond the crown to your tooth. This process can be completely painless through our office’s excellent sedation dentistry options.
We have a wide variety of shapes and shades available, so we can match the appearance of your natural teeth. This means no one but your and your dentist have to know you’ve had any dental work performed.
Dental crowns are extremely useful for permanently concealing any number of flaws in your teeth. We can use them to fix cracked teeth, chipped teeth, or even deeply stained teeth. This is also useful for replacing teeth that have been ravaged by decay, or affected by disease or blunt force trauma. They not only look great, they protect your teeth from further damage.
Dental crowns can also be used to replace any missing teeth you might have. We can place them on top of dental implants, or support them with dental bridges. This helps your teeth look great, and restores the function of teeth such as your ability to chew properly.
Same-day CEREC Crowns
Most dental crowns take a couple of appointments to apply. But new technology allows us to offer Same-Day CEREC Crowns at our Houston office. With CEREC crowns, we don’t have to wait for a dental lab to send back a crown for you. We can simply produce it in the office ourselves.
We use incredible technology to make a digital impression of your tooth. This impression is used to create a 3D model, which we can adjust as needed. The 3D model is then used by a milling machine which creates the crown in an incredibly short period of time. After polishing the crown, we can safely bond it your tooth.
Porcelain Dental Bridges
If you’re missing one or more teeth than you suffer from an uneven bite. This means you place stress on your teeth and jaw every time you chew. This can cause your teeth to shift out of position, as well as leaving them incredibly vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease.
But porcelain dental bridges can could be just the solution you need. If you have healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth, we can create a bride to restore the missing tooth. With a dental bridge, an incredibly lifelike false tooth is held in place by dental crowns on either side of the adjacent tooth.
This process requires only a few visits to our office. Once you have your dental bridge in place, you can feel confident enough to smile again. You’ll also be able to rest easy knowing that you have relieved the stress on your existing teeth.
