While dental fillings provide support by restoring vulnerable portions of teeth, crowns offer long-term support by fully surrounding them above the gumline. Our Dallas, TX dental office provides crowns to support teeth in poor health, and we can also use them as prosthetic restorations by securing them with titanium dental implants. With the option to receive a CEREC crown, you can have dental work completed in just one appointment!
What Type Of Crown Should You Receive?
There are different materials that are used in the construction of dental crowns, including substances like porcelain and ceramic that closely match the appearance of healthy enamel. We also provide more durable metal options like gold and silver, which can benefit you when you need more protection for back teeth.
SILK Dental Wellness can provide personalized care based on your needs, for lasting support as well as the preservation of your smile! At subsequent oral health appointments, we can check on restorations to make sure they continue to provide the support you need.
CEREC Dental Crowns
With CEREC technology, your Uptown Dallas dentist can have your tooth properly restored in as little as one appointment! We have everything we need to produce a ceramic crown that is ready to protect your tooth, shortening the time it takes to restore your oral health while still providing lasting protection.
CAD/CAM technology is used to evaluate your tooth and create a digital design for the restoration that you require. A custom crown is produced with our in-office milling machine. Made from ceramic, the restoration will match the color and texture of your healthy enamel.
Dental bridges are often used to address the loss of individual teeth, but larger bridges can successfully close a gap when several teeth are missing. To make sure your larger bridge remains secure, we can recommend that you have a dental implant put in place to hold it.
Our office experience in the field of prosthetic dentistry helps us address different concerns and achieve different goals when it comes to restoring incomplete smiles. If an implant-held bridge is right for you, we can help you see lasting cosmetic and oral health benefits! For patients who have multiple missing teeth that are not adjacent, we can recommend a partial denture.
Keeping A Dental Bridge Secure With Implant Support
Implant dentistry can help stabilize different types of prosthetic appliances. For patients receiving dental bridges, implants can provide important additional security to make treatment more beneficial. To make sure a bridge with multiple replacement teeth stays in position and holds up against bite pressure, an implant can act as a stabilizing force. This also provides additional value in the form of stimulation for your jawbone, keeping it from losing density.
