When Do You Need a Crown or Bridge?

Crowns and bridges are versatile solutions for various dental issues. You might need these treatments if you have:

  • Teeth that are significantly decayed or damaged.
  • Cracked or weakened teeth requiring reinforcement.
  • Dental implants needing completion with a crown.
  • Desire to improve your smile due to misshapen or discolored teeth.
  • Undergone root canal treatment, often necessitating a crown for tooth protection.

The Significance of Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and bridges play a vital role in restoring compromised teeth, reinstating their strength and function. They act as a protective cover, guarding the tooth from further damage and preventing potential tooth extraction. This protection is crucial for preserving natural teeth and maintaining oral health. Their structural support not only restores functionality but also contributes to long-term dental wellness.

Cosmetically, crowns and bridges offer significant enhancements. They are tailored to match your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless integration into your smile. This cosmetic improvement boosts self-confidence by addressing aesthetic concerns related to damaged or discolored teeth.

The Procedure for Crowns and Bridges

Getting a crown or bridge at Seaport Family Dental includes:

  1. Initial Assessment: Dr. Steve Deng evaluates your teeth to determine the best course of action.
  2. Tooth Preparation: Reshaping the tooth for a perfect crown or bridge fit.
  3. Impression Taking: Creating a mold for your custom restoration.
  4. Temporary Solution: Placement of a temporary crown or bridge while your custom one is crafted.
  5. Permanent Fitting: Adjusting and cementing your permanent crown or bridge.
  6. Final Adjustments: Ensuring a comfortable and natural bite.

Maintaining Your Crowns and Bridges

Similar to natural teeth, crowns and bridges require regular dental hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing. Routine dental check-ups with Dr. Steve Deng are crucial for monitoring and maintaining the health of your restorations.
