Which Longview area patients may benefit from a dental crown or a bridge?
Dental crowns are a common solution for protecting teeth from damage and improving their functionality. Dental bridges are often used to replace one or more missing teeth within the dental arch. Dr. Clint Bruyere of the Longview area can help patients with many dental concerns including tooth loss and restoration by providing quality crowns and bridges.
Both restorations are made of high quality porcelain, custom-matched to patient smiles for optimum integration into their smile. Using one of the best laboratories, he can provide individuals with beautiful, natural-looking options to their dental concerns.
Crowns and bridges are integrated into both cosmetic and general dentistry. Crowns are porcelain “caps” that are made with precision to fit over the tooth and cover all sides and the top for protection and strength. They are used to improve functionality when patients are dealing with breakage of the natural tooth, which can result in reduced efficiency. Crowns may also be fabricated to place over dental implants to act as false teeth.
Dental bridges are a little different. They are made for replacing missing teeth. However, they integrate dental crowns for placement. These crowns are bonded to each side of the bridge, which is made with false teeth called pontics, to create one long restoration that is placed over the adjacent teeth for support. Bridges are a wonderful alternative to dental implants for appropriate patients.
