Discover How to Repair Your Smile
So, dental crowns are pretty much our bread and butter dentistry. It’s where we take a tooth that either has broken down from decay, is broken down from a very large filling, or a tooth that is starting to crack, and maybe the patient is starting to feel the first signs of it. A dental crown allows us to keep that tooth around for a lot longer. The dental crown materials now, they function and look more like teeth now than ever before. So, the materials are fantastic, the look is fantastic, and patients can’t tell a difference. So, dental crowns allow us to keep a tooth that’s otherwise so damaged, that we can keep around for a lot longer, and don’t have to worry about replacing. Bridges with the advent of implants have become lesser and lesser done in our practice. Implants are starting to take the place of bridges in probably 70+% of the cases where we would’ve done a bridge before. However, bridges can be the appropriate choice sometimes over a dental implant, depending on that patient’s needs and desires.
