You work hard to protect your smile to ensure it stays strong, healthy, and beautiful. Unfortunately, even with the best care, your teeth can become damaged. Depending on the damage, you may require a dental crown (cap) or dental bridge in Midland TX. Crowns and bridges are excellent for repairing and replacing teeth. However, we know you want superior results when choosing these options.
To ensure that a patient’s teeth look and function as natural as possible, it takes a combination of art and science. By using the best dental advancements, materials, and techniques, the end result is a flawless smile that looks and functions like natural teeth. We combine our qualifications with the art and science behind dentistry to create smiles of perfection when placing crowns and bridges.
The Art in Restorative Dentistry
Dental bridges and crowns are popular options to restore damaged and missing teeth. In cases where a tooth has been severely damaged by decay or injury, but the root of the tooth remains intact, we are able to place a cap over the tooth. The cap is specially fabricated to meet your individual specifications to match the exact size, shape, and color you need. By placing the cap over the entire tooth down to the gum line, the function and appearance of the tooth is restored while protecting it from additional damage.
In cases where one or more teeth are missing, we use a dental bridge to essentially “bridge” the gap between the teeth. A bridge is specially crafted to replace the missing teeth. The bridge is then held in place using abutments, which are used on the adjacent teeth to securely hold the bridge in place.
To ensure that the restorations look as natural as possible, we must use a bit of artistry to create an aesthetically pleasing restoration that functions well. The artistry aspect of dentistry is used behind the scenes in the dental lab, where we use several types of ceramics to create natural looking crowns and bridges. We create the bridges and crowns to meet your exact specifications using all-ceramic restorations that are individualized to meet your size, shape, and color needs. The result is a restoration that blends in seamlessly with your remaining natural teeth. With a high level of precision, your restoration will not only look great, but function just as a natural tooth. Our high-quality materials are durable to ensure you have the proper biting force, alignment, and natural function for optimal results.
