A dental crown completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using cement. A crown can be made from many materials. Dental crowns are often used to improve the strength or the appearance of teeth.
We use dental labs who specialize in crown customization so that your crowns will have the best fit possible and mimic your natural tooth as closely as possible. This is essential for the durability and comfort of the crown.
Many people are afraid of getting crowns because they think it will hurt or because they think that it will be very expensive. Dr. Drew takes his time to make sure that your procedure will be as pain free as possible.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a dental bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and literally “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and are attached to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and cleaned, a fixed dental bridge can only be removed by a dentist.
We use high quality dental labs to ensure that your bridge will fit like it is natural. A bridge is often a great option to restore function of your mouth and bite. We are happy to let you know if a bridge is a good option for your missing teeth. Contact Oxford Dental Care today if you are in need of quality crown and bridge work.
