Restore The Health And Beauty Of Your Smile With Crowns And Bridges
When it comes to restoring damaged teeth or filling in gaps caused by missing teeth, dental crowns and bridges are invaluable solutions that offer both aesthetic and functional benefits. Our dentists commonly use these dental restorations at Montrose Dental Group in Chicago to improve the appearance, strength, and function of our patient’s smiles.
What are dental crowns and bridges?
Braces are dental appliances composed of brackets, arch wires, and elastics that are used to correct a variety of orthodontic issues. The treatment duration varies depending on the severity of the case and can range from several months to a few years.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are custom-made to match the color and contours of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result.
Dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth and consist of artificial teeth called pontics, anchored by dental crowns on adjacent healthy teeth or dental implants.
How are crowns and bridges placed?
Our dentist will prepare the affected tooth during the initial appointment by removing decay and shaping it to accommodate the crown or bridge. Impressions of your teeth are taken to create a customized restoration. Temporary restorations are placed while the permanent crowns or bridges are being fabricated. In the subsequent visit, the temporary restorations are removed, and the permanent ones are cemented into place, ensuring a secure fit.
What are the advantages of crowns and bridges?
Crowns and bridges can significantly improve the appearance of your smile by restoring the natural shape, color, and alignment of your teeth. They can restore the strength and function of damaged or missing teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and chew properly. Made from high-quality materials such as porcelain or porcelain fused to metal, dental crowns and bridges are very durable. Bridges prevent the adjacent teeth from shifting into the space left by a missing tooth, maintaining proper dental alignment. Crowns and bridges require regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups like natural teeth.
