Dental crowns and bridges have long been one of the go-to solutions for repairing chipped, cracked, broken, decayed, or missing teeth. At our Broadview Heights practice, Dr. Farian has been able to use these tried and true treatments to rebuild smiles for literally thousands of patients. If you have a damaged tooth or a gap in your smile you’d like to go away, he can make it so in just two easy appointments at our office. To schedule your first one and start getting your smile back, please contact us today in Broadview Heights.
A dental crown is a kind of dental restoration that can be used to repair and enhance all kinds of teeth. It is a tooth-shaped “cap” that actually fits over the top of a tooth and fully encapsulates it. This enables us to protect the natural tooth from damage while also restoring its natural appearance.
If you have a single missing tooth or a few in a row, the problems they can cause are more than aesthetic in nature. In addition to affecting your ability to chew and speak, the remaining teeth will often begin to shift into the open space, which can cause all sorts of issues for your bite alignment. A dental bridge can effectively replace these teeth and prevent these problems.
A bridge consists of three main parts: two dental crowns placed on the teeth surrounding the missing ones and a set of lifelike prosthetic teeth to fill in the gap. The prosthetic teeth are bonded directly to the crowns to provide stability and improve your oral function. If you don’t have enough healthy dental structure to support the necessary crowns, Dr. Farian can also build a bridge using dental implants.
In either case, whether you get a dental crown or bridge, Dr. Farian will make sure it’s custom-designed to give you a smile that you can proudly show off and trust day to day.
