Crown & Bridge
When you’re missing a tooth or when your tooth enamel has been weakened, a dental crown or bridge may be the most appropriate tool to restore your smile and prevent further damage to your oral health. Your dentist in Tuscon, AZ, can help you decide whether a dental crown or bridge is the most appropriate for your needs.
Dental Crown Services
If you have a weakened tooth or if you have a dental implant, your dentist at Carlos Rodriguez DMD may recommend a crown.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a cap that sits on top of your tooth to protect the enamel. A crown can prevent cracking and chipping, seal any existing cracks, and reinforce the enamel after a root canal has been performed. If you have a dental implant, the crown takes the place of the tooth to aid in digestion and prevent other teeth from shifting to fill the gap where a tooth once was.
Who Needs Dental Crowns?
You can benefit from a dental crown if you’ve recently had a root canal or have had a dental implant installed.
Dental Bridge Services
Your dentist may recommend a dental bridge if you’re missing a tooth. It’s important to fill the gap in your teeth to prevent other teeth from becoming misaligned. Filling the gap in your teeth will also aid in your digestion, as a missing tooth can make chewing difficult.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth that is held in place with two attached crowns that fit on the adjacent teeth.
Does a Dental Bridge Look Natural?
Dental bridges are designed to look natural. In fact, your dentist will choose a bridge that matches the color of your other teeth so that your bridge will look as natural as possible. No one will be able to tell that you’re wearing a dental bridge.
