Even if you’ve had some challenges with dental health or hygiene in the past, crowns and bridges can offer you an effective solution to many dental problems. Using the right kinds of bridges and crowns, you can restore the look and strength of your teeth.
At My Dental Company, we provide premier dental care Colorado Springs locals have come to trust. Everyone in our staff works hard to ensure compassionate care in a comfortable environment. Dr. Doug Olson is known for excellence in bridges, crowns and other restorations.
What are Crowns?
Dental crowns take the form of a tooth-shaped “cap” that completely covers the visible surfaces of a tooth. Crowns are ideal for teeth that have been severely damaged – for example, with serious cracking caused by an accident or tooth decay.
Made from porcelain and similar substances, crowns easily blend in with the appearance and coloration of untreated teeth. Crowns not only restore the function of teeth, but also strengthen them so structural damage is unlikely to worsen.
Teeth with crowns can still get cavities under or below the crown. Although a crown does protect teeth somewhat, brushing every day is still vital. With dental crowns Colorado Springs families can improve their dental health.
What Are Bridges?
Bridges include a set of artificial teeth intended to replace consecutive teeth that have been removed. To strengthen and anchor the bridge, the two teeth on either side of the planned restoration are given crowns. This makes them the abutment teeth.
Bridges are an ideal solution if you have two or more teeth missing on either dental arch, but the rest of the teeth are healthy enough that dentures will not be appropriate. Using bridges can help you restore the look of your mouth without performing unneeded extractions.
Bridges are complete artificial teeth and are immune to ordinary decay. However, it’s still important to brush and floss, since bacteria can flourish on food particles between teeth and may infiltrate the gums. Brushing helps enhance blood flow and protect periodontal tissue.
We have a full selection of bridges Colorado Springs patients have been happy with.
