What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a cap, or covering, that is typically placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its functionality and to protect it from further damage or harm. Dental crowns are crafted to function exactly like a regular tooth and to look and feel comfortable. Each dental crown is individually crafted for each patient, typically using a mold of their natural tooth. We make sure that each crown fits perfectly and provides perfect occlusion and comfort for each patient.
At Smile Concepts, our crowns are crafted using a high quality porcelain that perfectly mimics the natural translucence and color of your natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are virtually indistinguishable. After you’ve had a crown placed, people won’t even be able to tell you’ve had a restoration done. Before crowns, teeth that became damaged or decayed had to be extracted. Using dental crowns, Dr. Rouhani can prolong the health of your teeth even after damage or decay, and help you achieve a smile that lasts.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a type of restoration that uses dental crowns to replace missing teeth. Losing a tooth can be heartbreaking, but with dental bridges, we can restore the fullness of your smile and its functionality. Dental bridges allow patients who have lost teeth to enjoy all the benefits they took advantage of before their tooth loss. Our dental bridges can restore teeth, and restore hope.
Dental bridges use a series of crowns to fill in a gap left by one or more missing teeth. The crowns are cemented together, and anchored to the teeth adjacent to where the teeth are missing, forming a bridge of crowns over the gap. With a dental bridge, you will be able to enjoy all the activities you enjoyed before your tooth loss. Dental bridges are a great restorative dentistry option for patients who have lost teeth and want their smiles back.
