Rejuvenate Your Smile With A Dental Crown & Bridge From Your Dentist in Deltona
Prosthetic devices that are custom-made to suit each patient, dental crowns and bridges are constructed from porcelain or ceramic materials, and are fixed in place by your dentist. If you’ve damaged, fractured or lost a tooth entirely, then a dental crown and bridge from My Family Dental could be your ideal solution.
A cover or “cap” that’s placed over a damaged tooth, a crown strengthens the tooth and can be used to improve its appearance or alignment. It can also be placed on top of an implant to improve its shape or function.
A bridge is often used to fill gaps left by missing teeth and to prevent the rotation and shifting of remaining teeth that can result in a misaligned bite, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Bridges may replace one or more missing teeth and are secured to natural teeth or implants that surround the empty space, which serve as anchors for the prosthetic device.
Reasons For Choosing A Dental Crown Or Bridge
There are a variety of dental concerns for which these restorative treatments may be helpful:
- Fractured or broken teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Large fillings
- Fractured fillings
- A tooth with a root canal
Caring For Your Dental Crown Or Bridge
Caring for your new crown or bridge is very similar to caring for your natural teeth. Though they aren’t susceptible to decay, the gum area that surrounds these devices will require regular cleaning to keep your mouth healthy. Many patients find it’s easier to care for the area with a special floss that’s designed for these types of prosthetics.
