If you have a damaged or missing tooth, you may wonder what your options are to improve the health and function of your smile. Whether you have a cracked tooth or a missing tooth, at Ever Care Dental we will provide convenient solutions for all of your dental needs.
Both Dr. Elaine Gonzales is highly skilled at dental restorations. From crowns to bridges, her expertise and skills will allow you to improve the aesthetics and function of your teeth.
High-Quality Dental Crowns
If you have a cracked or severely chipped tooth, you may benefit from a dental crown. Dental crowns are protective covers placed over the top of a compromised tooth in order to provide comfort, support, and stability.
Dental crowns are usually made from porcelain, noble metal, or a combination of the two. At Ever Care Dental, we will create a custom crown that meets your specific needs and aesthetic requirements. Our goal is to provide increased function and comfort while also considering the appearance of your smile. Porcelain crowns will have a custom shade that matches your natural teeth so that your smile is seamless and attractive.
Benefits Of Dental Crowns
A dental crown will help to protect your tooth. Usually, a crown is necessary in order to prevent further damage or to keep a tooth from splitting. The ultimate goal is to save your tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. Without a crown, your tooth may incur more damage and cause unnecessary pain.
Losing teeth can create problems with your bite as well as your appearance. Our dentist is highly skilled at performing dental crown procedures. She works with an experienced dental lab to make sure that your crowns are made from high-quality, long-lasting materials.
With proper care and regular dental exams, your crowns can last for many years and support the health and function of your smile.
Custom Dental Bridges
Dental bridges utilize the same basic materials as crowns, but are created to replace your missing tooth. Traditional dental bridges consist of two abutment crowns adjacent to your missing tooth and a pontic crown in the middle to replace your missing tooth.
Benefits of dental bridges include:
- Improved chewing
- Improved speech
- Aesthetic improvements
- Distribution of force
- Maintaining teeth spacing
- Improvement to dental bite (occlusion)
Dental bridges are an excellent option for people who are not good candidates for a dental implant. Because they have been around for a long time, bridges are still one of the most common tooth replacement therapies recommended by dentists.
