Crown and Bridge Therapy at Cashmere Family Dentistry
Losing your teeth isn’t only bad for your self-confidence – did you know that it can also damage your oral health over time? Gaps in your smile often cause remaining teeth to shift in an effort to fill the space, which can alter your bite and lead to potentially dangerous conditions like gum disease and teeth grinding.
Dr. Janie Busk and Dr. Ryan Busk offer a sturdy and reliable reconstructive solution to restore your health and natural radiant smile. Our Cashmere, WA dentists are happy to provide crown and bridge therapy for patients who are seeking to replenish their missing teeth and feel confident about their smile again.
Used in combination with dental implants and dental bridges as well as on their own to repair a dental injury or tooth decay, dental crowns are the preferred choice of tooth replacement among dentists nationwide.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown or “cap” is a tooth covering made of strong porcelain or ceramic that is placed just over the surface of the tooth. It can also be joined to a dental bridge or implant. Dental crowns restore the luster to your smile and look natural, blending in with your natural teeth and giving you a beautiful, functional smile.
Dental Crowns Offer Cosmetic And Restorative Advantages
In addition to lasting for years with proper at home and professional care, dental crowns are beneficial for:
Recovering from tooth loss
Correcting chipped or damaged teeth
Restoring broken or damaged teeth, or a tooth after root canal therapy if a filling is insufficient
Improving the appearance of discolored, stained, or misshapen teeth
What is a Dental Bridge?
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, a dental bridge can “bridge” the gap between your remaining, adjacent teeth and fill the empty space with customized dental crowns.
Dental bridges are popular due to their high success rate and their durability--they never slip or shift in place. If you are recovering and healing from tooth loss, bridges are a gentle, nonsurgical dental option to dental implants.
How Do Crowns And Bridges Work Together?
When several teeth in a row are missing, a fixed bridge is an excellent replacement option. Unlike dentures, bridges are permanently attached to your gums with the help of personalized crowns. The result? A comfortable, natural-looking smile. Be transformed in just a few short visits!
What Can I Expect During My Appointment?
During your initial visit, our team will take detailed notes about the color and shape of your teeth so that we can be sure to create the most complementary, aesthetically pleasing bridge possible. We’ll then send this information to a trusted ceramist, who will craft the final product and send it back to Cashmere Family Dentistry so that we can securely place it within your smile. You’ll be amazed by how much easier it is to speak clearly and eat all your favorite foods with a brand-new, stable set of teeth!
