What is a Dental Crown and How Does It Work?
A dental crown is a custom-made cap bonded over the entire visible surface of a tooth down to the gum line. This makes them very versatile, allowing them to hold a commonplace in preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. They can protect a weakened tooth from breaking, repair a damaged tooth, or cover dark tooth discoloration. They are often used in combination with other treatments as well, such as dental bridges, root canals, or dental implants.
Now, they are made from all-ceramic material, so they are carefully crafted to match the appearance of your natural teeth. You can also get the high-quality restoration you need in just one day using E4D technology.
What is a Dental Bridge and How Does It Work?
A dental bridge is the most traditional solution to replace 1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth. Your dentist in Fort Collins, Dr. Lindsey takes an impression of your mouth to create a bridge of prosthetic teeth. They are made to match the appearance of your natural ones to blend in seamlessly when you smile. The bridge is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This gives you a solution to replace your missing teeth that can last for an average of 5 years if you care for it properly.
