Crowns & Bridgework – Canton, MS
Dentistry is more than a science, it’s also an art form that can give you a gorgeous smile, even if you weren’t blessed with naturally strong and beautiful teeth. Crowns and bridgework are just two examples of how Dental Solutions of Mississippi can turn your smile into a work of art.
Dental crowns completely cover the teeth above the gumline. The materials used to create crowns strengthen the teeth and improve upon their appearance. They can be crafted with porcelain, gold, or even a combination of porcelain-fused-to-metal. The materials used are largely determined by the needs and esthetic concerns of each patient.
Crowning or Capping a Tooth
Crowning or capping your teeth can take from two to three office visits. First, we prepare your teeth for the crowns and then take impressions to send to our dental lab. Before you leave, we will fit you with temporary crowns to protect your teeth while you wait for your permanent crowns to be made. At your next visit, your permanent crowns will be attached so you can leave our office with your biggest, most confident smile.
Creating a Bridge
With the help of bridgework, crowns can also be used to replace missing teeth. The healthy teeth that surround your missing tooth or teeth are fitted with crowns and used to support a third crown that is created to fill in the gaps created by tooth loss. The complexity of treatment is determined by how many missing teeth need to be replaced and the strength of the supporting bone and gum tissue.
Caring for Your Crowns & Bridgework
Just like your regular teeth, crowns should be brushed and flossed every day. To ensure that your crowns last, avoid using your teeth as tools or engaging in habits (such as nail biting) that could damage your dental work. Finally, be vigilant about regular appointments for dental cleanings and checkups.
