Crown and Bridge Treatment in Syracuse, NY
When a tooth is significantly damaged due to decay or injury but still worth saving, consider a dental crown. A crown strengthens and restores damaged teeth, restoring their natural function and appearance.
In cases where a tooth is beyond repair or missing entirely, a dental implant with a crown is widely regarded as the optimal solution. Alternatively, a three-unit fixed bridge, utilizing your natural teeth on either side of the gap, offers a viable option for restoration. For larger gaps, longer bridges can be custom-fabricated to provide comprehensive support.
The creation of crowns and bridges involves skilled dental technicians who use molds of your teeth to precisely determine the restoration’s shape and size. This process typically takes only a few weeks, ensuring you can showcase your enhanced smile promptly.
The durability of a crown or bridge primarily hinges on the patient’s dental health and hygiene practices. Regular check-ups, cleanings, and consistent brushing and flossing are essential for maintaining a beautiful smile for years to come.
Crowns and bridges can address various dental issues. Here are some scenarios where they may be applicable:
- Covering and securing a cracked or chipped tooth with a crown.
- Restoring a discolored tooth resistant to whitening treatments.
- Filling in gaps caused by lost or extracted teeth using a dental bridge.
- Reinforcing a tooth weakened after root canal therapy with a crown.
