Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns and bridges are smile restoration options for anyone who has lost teeth to gum disease, or has worn, decayed teeth. At Vevera Family Dental we offer the latest in dental crowns and bridge work procedures. Dr. Keith Vevera and his staff can go over options with you and the best procedures to address your specific issues.
Using dental crowns, also called caps, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile if you’re self-conscious about worn, decayed, broken or cracked teeth. For a tooth with extensive decay or damage a crown can return function, structure, and strength. Preserving your jaw’s natural correct alignment while protecting your tooth from further damage, crowns are designed to function as the natural tooth as they fit snugly around it.
We use all-porcelain crowns to maintain a fully white smile. In order to allow us find the exact shade of porcelain that will blend with your natural tooth color, we use a precise color-matching system. An additional benefit of porcelain veneers that make them popular with dentist as well as patients is that they are extremely durable and long lasting.
We can create a bridge to restore your smile if you’ve lost teeth due to gum disease, accident or other trauma. This will fill the gap or gaps, as well as prevent re-positioning of the teeth that remain. A bridge can also improve speech articulation and chewing function, correct a misaligned bite, and even give you a more youthful appearance by provide internal structure for the face.
A Fixed Bridge
One or more prosthetic teeth attached on both or a single side of the teeth that have been prepared with dental crowns is a simple definition of a bridge; where as a fixed bridge is connected to the neighboring abutment teeth or crowned teeth. A fixed bridge is made up of three basic units: the teeth (pontic) or false tooth and two abutment crowns. The style of bridge we suggest will depend upon the strength and health of the abutment teeth, as well as the location of the gap in relation to the rest of your dentition. A dental implant can be a solid alternative in the case that there aren’t healthy abutment teeth or tooth adjacent. An implant-supported prosthetic or removable partial denture may be recommended, where many teeth are replaced by a bridge. A fixed bridge can be maintained between 8 to 10 years with proper care.
