Dental crowns (sometimes referred to as “caps”) are designed to be an effective replacement for a tooth’s natural crown. They cover the visible surfaces in order to not only rebuild the original structure and shape, but to also preserve what remains of the tooth. Dr. Mesh may recommend a new crown as the ideal treatment in a variety of different situations, including:
Have you lost multiple teeth that used to appear together in a row? A dental bridge can restore the missing structure by literally “bridging” the gap left in your smile. There are two main types of bridges: traditional and implant-retained. Traditional bridges stay in place with the help of two dental crowns, which are anchored in place over natural teeth on either side of the gap. While effective enough in creating new, sturdy teeth, healthy dental structure does have to be filed down to accommodate the placement. A more successful and long-lasting option is implant-retained bridges, which attach to placed dental implants within the jawbone.
Dr. Mesh will be happy to help you explore these benefits in greater detail and decide on the option that best suits you.
