Crowns and bridges are restorative dentistry options that can repair damaged teeth or replace missing teeth.
A crown is a cap that fits over your entire tooth. Crowns improve the strength of your natural tooth, keep out debris, and improve the appearance of a damaged or decayed tooth.
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. The bridge is made of one or more artificial teeth that connect to crowns on both sides or a framework. The artificial teeth replace missing teeth, and the crowns anchor the bridge in place.
Madison Dental Spa offers crowns and bridges as a restorative dentistry service for adults and children.
You might need dental crowns if you have a severely damaged or decayed tooth that Dr. Chason can’t repair with a filling. You may also benefit from a crown if you need a root canal to treat dental pain or infection.
Madison Dental Spa also offers crowns for dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. Dr. Chason can attach a crown to titanium posts he implants into your jawbone.
Bridges are another option for replacing a single missing tooth or multiple teeth lost to injury or decay.
To determine if you need crowns or bridges, Dr. Chason performs a complete dental exam and may take dental X-rays.
Crowns and bridges require two office visits to complete. During your first visit, Dr. Chason takes an impression of your teeth to create your crown or bridge. He must also prepare your tooth by removing a portion of enamel so the crown fits snugly over your natural tooth.
If you need a root canal or other restorative dentistry service, Dr. Chason can complete it during your visit. He can also place temporary crowns before your custom-made ones are ready.
When you return to the office for your next appointment, Dr. Chason places the crown or bridge in your mouth and makes adjustments for your comfort.
After your crown or bridge is in place, you care for them just like your regular teeth by brushing and flossing daily. You can also protect your crown or bridge long-term by keeping up with your preventive dentistry visits every six months.
