Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges provide restoration with both functionality and esthetically pleasing results. Dental crowns commonly referred to as caps cover the outer shell of the tooth. Crowns help provide strength and stability to a broken down tooth or to one that has completed root canal treatment.
Crowns may be recommended when a large portion of the tooth has chipped or broken off. Caps are also necessary to replace a failed filling that incorporated a larger area of the tooth as well. When a large portion of a tooth has broken off a filling will not withstand the force of biting, chewing and grinding placed on our dentition.
Dental bridges are just as they sound, used as bridge to connect adjacent teeth. Dental bridges are a great restorative option to replace an area where a tooth is missing. If a dental implant is not achievable or if the adjacent teeth have larger restorations your dentist may recommend a dental bridge. These bridges will not only assist in your ability to chew food properly but will also stop crowding and movement of the surrounding teeth.
At Providence Dentistry in Charlotte, NC we believe in educating our patients. We will gladly walk you through our process for your crown or bridge procedure. Just like all dental procedures maintenance is important for the longevity of your dental treatment.
Maintenance in a dental office means your routine dental cleanings and exams. During your cleaning and evaluation we can check on your dental work along with the removal of plaque and tartar. A dental crown or bridge is susceptible to decay so professional dental cleanings along with great home care are important.
