Damaged Tooth Repair and Tooth Replacement
At our Friendswood and Pearland, TX, restorative dental practices, we use state-of-the-art techniques, biocompatible materials, and years of experience in restorative dentistry. Dental crowns and bridges remain some of the most popular tooth restoration options. Tooth crowns and dental bridges are a great option for replacing one or more teeth in your smile.
Is your self-esteem suffering because of a missing tooth? Surprisingly, your oral health can also suffer. Missing teeth can change your bite and cause shifting, which results in problems with chewing and speaking. TMJ disorders can also be an issue, as well as gum disease, additional tooth loss, and bone deterioration.
Dental crowns are used to repair a damaged tooth by removing the damaged top part of the tooth and replacing it with a porcelain crown that is custom-made to fit your smile. Dental crowns can be matched to the color of the surrounding teeth for a flawless smile.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
If you have a damaged tooth it can cause a lot of pain and it can also lead to additional oral health issues if left untreated. With a dental crown replacement you will eliminate any pain you are feeling in the damaged tooth and help prevent any additional damage to your gums or the surrounding teeth.
Another great benefit to getting dental crowns from Montz and Maher Dental Group is the ability for us to complete your crown replacement in a single visit with CEREC same day dental crowns.
Dental bridges are affordable teeth-replacement options that can fill in the gaps in your smile. A dental bridge consists of a series of tooth crowns, where the replacement crown fills in the gap and the other tooth crowns act as anchors and are bonded to your natural teeth. Our dentists can place your crown or dental bridge to complete your smile.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
First and foremost, you will have a full smile again! But aside from that, a dental bridge can also restore your bite so you can speak and chew without problems. Replacing missing teeth also helps maintain your facial structure and helps keep your teeth from shifting out of position.
What Is the Process for Getting a Dental Crown and Bridge?
When you come into our office, we start with preparing the abutment teeth, or the teeth on which the tooth crowns will cover, bonding the bridge into place. Next we’ll make a mold to create your custom dental bridge. A temporary dental crown or bridge will be placed between the space and the teeth until your permanent bridge is ready.
The process is complete after we place your tooth crown or bridge, making sure to adjust if necessary, and bond them into place.
