Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are one of the most popular treatment options for people who are looking to restore, enhance, or protect their smiles. Dental crowns and bridges can artistically improve the shape, alignment or appearance of your teeth. When properly taken care of, dental crowns and bridges will last for many years.
What are crowns and bridges?
A crown completely covers a single tooth all around, providing it with protection from all sides and allowing for aesthetic adjustments to help achieve your dream smile. Bridges do the same thing as a crown, but they also “bridge” the gaps between your teeth and fill in any gaps you may have! Dr. Dang’s expertise allows for both of these techniques to match your teeth and integrate the filling into the rest of your smile.
At Studio Dental of River Park, we only source from labs in Houston and Miami where we are able to ensure that the material used is lead-free and BPA-free. Our most popular materials are zirconia and porcelain, with both being safe, durable, and lifelike. We use digital color sensor technology in order to perfectly match any tooth shade, and will make a temporary 2-week crown to give an idea to our patients of what they can expect. From there, we will produce your real crown and cement it over your tooth, giving the tooth a realistic feeling and appearance.
Am I a candidate for a crown or bridge?
If you have weak or cracked teeth, a deteriorating filling, a discolored tooth, a tooth which has been treated for a root canal, or an implant without a crown, then you are a likely candidate for a dental crown or bridge. Crowns and bridges will protect your teeth, gums, and seamlessly blend in with your undamaged teeth. They shield teeth from further damage and can repair the look of your teeth as well, preventing damage and discoloration from being seen.
