Our skilled technicians at Paragon Esthetics combine high-quality materials along with the latest in advanced technology to create dental restorations that can improve and restore your smile after losing teeth to decay, injury, or time. We are proud to be your go-to resource for quality dental crowns and bridges, dental implants, and complete or partial dentures. This month we’re going to look at how are crowns and bridges can help patients achieve the healthy happy smiles they need.
When teeth are badly broken and the patient is faced with extensive tooth damage — like a broken cusp or a large area of the decayed tooth to fix — a dental crown is often the best choice. We only use top-quality ceramic, porcelain, metal and resin that look and feel natural to the wearer providing reliable function for many years with proper care. They are crafted from precise impressions using state-of-the-art technology to make sure the fit is comfortable and secure.
When multiple teeth are missing, the gap can be closed by wearing a dental bridge. This restoration is a false tooth which is kept in place with the help of the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. There are four main kinds of dental bridges:
1-Traditional dental bridge
The false teeth are kept in their place using dental crowns cemented onto the abutment teeth.
2-Cantilever dental bridge
The false tooth is held in place by a dental crown that is cemented to only one abutment tooth.
3-Maryland dental bridge
These use two natural abutment teeth with one on each side of the gap, using a framework of metal or porcelain which is bonded to the backs of the abutment teeth.
4-Implant-supported dental bridge
These rely on dental implants instead of crowns or frameworks. Often, one implant is surgically installed for each missing tooth to hold the bridge in place.
