crowns & bridges in woodstock, ga
Gold and silver dental repairs have long been chosen to rejuvenate injured and decayed teeth, but it’s no secret that they leave a less-than-desirable mark on your smile. Thanks to cutting-edge innovations in dentistry, you have more solutions for restoring a healthy and radiant smile. We are pleased to provide dental crowns and bridges made of high-quality porcelain that are both durable and natural-looking. No matter what your needs are, our dentists will produce your porcelain dental restorations to remedy your particular concerns and goals for a glowing and seamless smile.
Porcelain (Metal-free) Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are caps placed over teeth to repair function and appearance to a tarnished tooth. Dental crowns could be used to:
- Fortify a weakened tooth
- Replace a large filling
- Bring stability when attached to a dental bridge
- Cover a dental implant that replaces a missing tooth
Porcelain Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are secured dental restorations used to replace one or more missing teeth. They can be used to:
- Fill in voids due to missing teeth
- Restore effective chewing and speaking capability
- Prevent teeth from moving in the mouth as a result of missing teeth
- Decrease jaw pain and other problems brought on by an uneven bite from missing teeth
There are various types of dental bridges; our dentists will make their suggestions based on which is most suitable for your unique needs. We supply the following types of bridges:
Traditional bridge: contains an artificial tooth supported on either surface by a dental crown. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap.
Maryland-bonded bridge: contains a simulated tooth with two dental crowns positioned next to each other.
Cantilever bridge: oftentimes used for the front teeth. It consists of an artificial tooth attached to two metal bands. The bands are adhered onto the backsides of the teeth on either side of the gap.
Zirconium All-White Substructure Crowns and Bridges
In addition to porcelain restorations, we in addition provide dental crowns and bridges crafted from all-white zirconium, which provides the strength of metal with the included benefit of a tooth-colored aesthetic. Zirconium has been revealed to be stronger than porcelain while still delivering a natural-looking appearance. The decision of crafting your dental restoration using zirconium or porcelain will be up to you and your dentist and will depend on a range of factors, including the positioning of the dental restoration, your aesthetic goals and budget.
Dental crowns and bridges are usually placed over the course of two visits. During the course of the first visit, your dentist will prep the tooth or teeth that will receive the dental restorations. This involves extracting decay and reshaping the tooth or teeth that will surround the bridge. Next, we will make an impression of your tooth or teeth, which will be sent a dental laboratory where your personalized dental crown or bridge will be crafted. We will place a short-term restoration over your tooth or teeth while you wait for your permanent ones. Two weeks after your first appointment, you will come back to our office so we can place your permanent restoration. We will make changes to your restoration as needed so it can complement the color and shape of your natural teeth. Once in place, your dental restoration will be virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
Caring for Your Dental Restoration
Dental restorations are designed to be sturdy and resilient. With correct care, they can last for many years. Like natural teeth, your dental restoration will need to be brushed and flossed regularly. We recommend avoiding chewing ice, hard foods or objects (e.g., pencils), which can sometimes crack and damage your dental restoration. Routine dental checkups with our team are essential so we can monitor the function and health of your dental restoration.
