Beautiful teeth contribute immensely to your external appearance and demeanor. A missing or broken tooth not only makes you look less attractive and affects your self-esteem but also makes chewing and cleaning a difficult task.
Missing or misshaped teeth can lead to malocclusion and other oral diseases. Dental crowns and dental bridges from Progressive Dental are great restorative options for you to get back your sweet smile. A dental bridge or dental crown will also ensure that your speech functions remain unaffected.
If you want us to place a dental crown or a dental bridge, call 405-632-5561 today to schedule an appointment.
Dental crowns and bridges are coverings that can be used to cover the part of a decayed or broken tooth above the gum. Some of the advantages are:
- Dental crowns and dental bridges can strengthen your weakened tooth
- Reduce further damage to your decayed and weakened teeth
- Dental crowns and veneers can also be used for cosmetic purposes, especially for covering discolored and unevenly shaped teeth
- Dental bridges are false teeth placed between two dental crowns and provide reinforcement to your gum and fill up the gap left vacant by a missing tooth
- Improved chewing ability
We can make dental crowns from different materials like metal, metal alloy, porcelain, ceramic and resin. The type of material you choose can make a huge difference in the durability and appearance of the dental crown.
Stainless steel crowns are known for their durability but the color match may be poor. Resin crowns can be designed to match the color of your natural teeth as close as possible. However, resin crowns can fracture and wear down over time. You might be advised metal crowns to cover back molars while your front teeth receive resin crowns. Choose the one that suits your need. Call us for an appointment.
Bridges may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. The gap left by a missing tooth can cause the other teeth to shift. This shifting can lead to gum diseases and affect your chewing ability. At Progressive Dental, our team can fill those spaces through the placement of bridges.
A dental crown or dental bridge placement at our dental clinic usually takes two visits. During your first visit, we will make molds of the teeth, which will be covered with a dental crown
. We also place temporary crowns on the teeth to be transformed.
During your second visit, permanent dental crowns or dental bridges are placed. It is our constant endeavor to make our processes as painless as possible through the use of latest techniques and equipment.
Our friendly staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable. We will offer services only after thorough consideration of the medical examination results and your personal preferences. FREE consultations are available.
