Restore Your Smile With Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are two popular restorative services we proudly offer our patients at American Dental Care in Doylestown.
What are crowns and bridges?
A dental crown is a thin but durable porcelain “cap” that fits over the entire visible surface of a damaged or weakened tooth. It improves the look, shape, and strength of the tooth while also protecting it from further decay and damage.
A dental bridge is one or more false teeth that are held in place by two crowns on either side of an extraction site. They not only restore a patient’s speaking, chewing, and bite function, but they also help prevent issues that can arise when teeth that surround an extraction site shift out of place.
What’s involved with having a crown and bridge placed?
The process usually requires two appointments. During the first, our dentist will prepare your tooth or teeth by removing any decay, filing down enamel, and taking an impression, which will be used to create your custom crown and bridge. The area will then be covered with a temporary restoration. When your customized prosthetic is ready to be placed, we’ll arrange a second appointment where our dentist will check its appearance and fit before bonding the restoration in place.
Who should consider these restorations?
Crowns and bridges can be a good solution for patients interested in restoring their smile's structure, strength, and appearance. Of course, undergoing a thorough examination is necessary to determine a patient’s candidacy for treatment.
