What Are Crowns & Bridges?
Crowns are prosthetic teeth that cover damaged, weakened or decayed teeth. They can be made from gold or other metal alloys and improve your dental health and appearance.
They can also be used to replace a large filling or repair a damaged tooth that has undergone a root canal.
When you come in for a consultation, our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if a crown or bridge is the best option for your oral health and cosmetic goals.
We will discuss the benefits of each restoration and answer any questions you may have about the procedure. Once you have an idea of which treatment is right for you, we will schedule an appointment to place your crowns and/or bridge.
Depending on the type of crown or bridge you need, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and send them to a lab to create the restorations. You will then return to the office for a second visit in which your dentist will attach the bridge to your teeth, either permanently or with a removable solution.
There are many reasons why a crown or bridge might loosen or fall out of place over time. Common causes include damage from hard foods, chewing on ice or even from dental disease that destroys the surrounding support teeth. If the support teeth are still healthy, your Go2Dental provider can re-attach the crown or bridge with fresh cement. If the crown or bridge becomes loose due to normal wear and tear, you should call your dentist as soon as possible for a checkup or visit www.thesarasotadentist.net/crowns-bridges/.
