Find out how these popular dental restorations could be all you need to improve the health of your smile.
Are you missing a tooth? Are you looking to cover a severely misshapen or discolored tooth? Do you need to protect a damaged tooth from further damage? Our Hacienda Heights, CA dentist, Dr. Ron Nichols, can easily treat all of theses issues and more with dental crowns and bridges.
Dental crowns are one of the most versatile dental restorations you can get in Hacienda Heights. Sure they may not seem flashy or innovative but there is a reason they’ve been around so long. They are reliable, attractive and durable. They can also be used to improve teeth that are:
- Chipped or cracked
- Severely decayed
Dental crowns can also be used to support a dental bridge or cover a dental implant. Of course, before the crown is even made, we need to prepare the tooth for the crown. A crown won’t be able to fit over your tooth as is. Once the tooth is reshaped, impressions are taken and then a lab makes you very own custom-fitted crown. Once the crown is finished it is cemented over the tooth.
If you are missing one or more teeth then our Hacienda Heights general dentist may recommend getting a dental bridge. If neighboring teeth are healthy enough to support your bridge we will place dental crowns over these teeth. The false teeth are cemented in between the crowns to fill the gap left over by missing teeth.
Just as we mentioned above, the two teeth that will get crowns will need to be prepared prior to the crowns being placed. These crowns will support the false tooth or teeth.
