All Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are both used, often in conjunction, to fix a variety of issues. They are commonly used to treat:
- Chips and Cracks.
- Weak, Decaying Teeth
- The Last Step After Root Canal Therapy
- Missing Teeth
Individuals with these conditions can use all porcelain crowns and bridges to restore structural integrity to their bite and create a shining, beautiful smile. Chips and cracks can be unsightly, and decaying teeth can be painful. Porcelain crowns allow you to fix these issues without having to go through major surgeries and procedures.
All-porcelain crowns are completely metal-free. Each crown is customized for every patient, and is sized, shaped, and colored to match the teeth that will be surrounding it. Typically, permanent all-porcelain crowns take two visits, which yields a better overall fit than crowns that are made in a single visit.
Bridges are made to fill spaces created by missing teeth. Bridges are held in by crowns cemented onto the teeth adjacent to the space. These crowns serve as anchor points for the artificial teeth that will be fitted into the mouth. All-ceramic bridges are an excellent choice for most bridge applications, and typically look the most natural.
There are many reasons why missing teeth should be replaced. Not only does it have its cosmetic benefits, but it also can drastically affect your oral health over time as well. Missing teeth provide areas where food can get stuck, eroding the enamel of the tooth. Over time, the surrounding teeth will also shift out of place. This can cause issues with your bite, and even change the overall structure of your jaw. Missing teeth need to be addressed quickly to avoid the larger issues that they can lead to, and all-porcelain crowns and bridges are an excellent consideration.
