At Temple City Dental Care, we can restore your damaged teeth and replace missing teeth using our top quality dental crowns and dental bridges.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth shaped covering that can be placed directly over a natural tooth to restore its strength and appearance. A dental crown will protect your tooth from further damage and help prevent tooth decay from worsening or causing more serious health problems. Before dental crowns were available, more teeth required extractions. Now we can help patients enjoy a full, natural smile even longer.
The Dental Crown Process
Our dental crowns are made using only the finest porcelain materials to replicate your tooth’s color and natural translucence. Each dental crown is created specifically for each patient using molds of their natural teeth. Once a dental crown has been crafted, and your tooth has been prepared, Dr. Von Bulow will place your crown directly over your natural tooth. Our dental crowns look beautiful and feel comfortable. You’ll be able to enjoy full functionality, and over time your crown will feel like a natural part of your mouth. Our crowns can even be used to replace missing teeth using a dental bridge.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a dental appliance that can be used to replace a lost tooth. Dental bridges are created using a series of attached dental crowns that can “bridge” a gap left by a missing tooth. We can use a dental bridge to replace a single tooth, or multiple teeth in a row. Dental bridges restore full functionality and look like a natural part of your smile. With a dental bridge, you’ll be able to enjoy all the activities you loved before your tooth loss.
