Dental crowns and bridges are a great way to repair gaps and misalignments and protect discolored teeth against future staining. The purpose of placing crowns and bridges is not only to enhance your smile but also to restore fractured, severely decayed or otherwise damaged teeth.
At Desert Peak Family Dental, we provide tooth crowns and bridges for our patients. These reparative procedures are highly effective for fixing an infected tooth or one that is damaged. Your Glendale dentist Dr. Pandya is skilled at repairing teeth with these procedures. Crowns and bridges enhance your natural smile while resolving dental health concerns. Call our office to schedule your consultation to find out more about the benefits of dental crowns and dental bridges.
A crown is a dental restoration that encircles or “caps” a tooth or implant. Your Desert Peak dentist will place a dental crown to restore and strengthen a damaged tooth. This can be done for aesthetic purposes or to improve oral health.
We use three different types of dental crowns, all-metal, metal-ceramic, and all-ceramic (or porcelain). The location of the tooth impairment will determine which material is used. For instances front teeth are repaired with tooth-colored, all-ceramic crowns because of their natural look. Ceramic-metal is another good option because these crowns offer added durability.
Bridge work is a tooth replacement solution. At Desert Peak Family Dental, our patients who choose dental bridges want to replace missing teeth, but don’t want to wear dentures or undergo implant surgery. The prosthetic tooth is secured by two dental crowns. Made of porcelain or ceramic material, the replacement teeth are very natural-looking and blend well with the surrounding teeth.
