At Quest Dental, many of the treatments that our Johnson Square dentist provides involve the use of dental crowns and bridges. These dental devices play a large role in both the cosmetic and restorative fields of dentistry. Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, can be used for any number of reasons. Our Johnson Square dentist often uses dental crowns in order to mend a tooth that is in need of repair. For example, a dental crown may be used if a tooth is severely decayed. Similarly, we might suggest the use of a dental crown to keep a cracked tooth from fracturing further, or for repairing a broken tooth.
Dental crowns can also be used to complete restorative treatments. After root canal therapy, our Johnson Square dentist usually covers the newly repaired and cleaned tooth with a dental crown to keep it protected from future infection. Dental implant restorations also require the use of a dental crown to serve as the replacement tooth. If you have a tooth that is severely discovered, a dental crown may be color-matched and used for cosmetic purposes. Also in the restorative vein is the dental bridge. A bridge is a dental device that literally bridges the gap between two teeth. It is, therefore, a popular option to resolve issues associated with tooth loss. In addition to replacing missing teeth, bridges restore the shape of your face, and alleviate any excess stress that is being put on your bite. Both bridges and crowns are made of durable, tooth-colored materials, allowing patients to keep the natural look and feel of their original teeth.
