We provide crowns and bridges for patients suffering from lost or severely damaged teeth. Our crowns and bridges are made from the best materials available, and they will restore both the appearance and function of your mouth.
It can be very troubling when a person severely damages a tooth or loses one entirely. Having a complete set of healthy teeth is very important for maintaining a beautiful, confident smile. Healthy teeth are also crucial for chewing food, speaking clearly and feeling your best. Fortunately, our dental professionals can restore lost or damaged teeth with crowns and bridges.
We understand how important it is to receive a top-quality restoration when a tooth is lost or experienced major damage. Crowns and bridges are effective because they are custom-designed based on impressions of the patient’s mouth. This allows them to blend in seamlessly and provides the best possible results. To ensure a long-lasting restoration, all of our crowns and bridges are built from porcelain. This material is highly regarded for its natural look and strong performance in replacing lost teeth.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped appliances that are used to repair severely damaged teeth or to replace lost teeth. If a crown is repairing a damaged tooth, it will “cap” the existing structure, which will serve as the foundation. If a crown is replacing a lost tooth, then it will be supported by a dental implant, which will be inserted into the patient’s jawbone. Dental crowns on surrounding teeth can also be used to support dental bridges.
A dental bridge is a restoration that is used to replace one or more lost teeth. The center of a dental bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth that “bridge” the gap left when the original teeth were lost. At each end of the dental bridge is a single crown, referred to as an “abutment.” These two crowns will help keep the bridge securely in place. A bridge may also receive added support from one or more dental implants inserted into the jawbone.
It usually takes at least two visits to our practice to receive a crown or bridge. It is important to understand that crowns and bridges are custom restorations. They must be custom-built in a dental laboratory using impressions taken of the patient’s teeth. The first visit is when these impressions are taken, and the second visit is when the crown or bridge will be applied. Please note that the process can take longer if dental implants are used.
Snoqualmie Modern Dental Center is proud to offer crowns and bridges built from porcelain. This material is highly regarded for its natural look and strong performance when replacing lost teeth.
