Dental Crown & Bridge
If you have one or more missing or severely damaged teeth and you’re interested in a fixed prosthetic that can help restore your full speaking, smiling, and chewing function, at Smile Quest Dental in St. Paul, we know that a dental crown and bridge may be a viable solution for you.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a durable restoration that covers the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. It is used to strengthen a tooth that has been significantly damaged by decay or injury, or to cover a dental implant. Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a prosthetic device used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more false teeth (known as pontics) that are supported by dental crowns on either side. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain, and ceramic.
What are the benefits of dental crowns and bridges?
In addition to improving the function and appearance of a patient’s smile, these restorations can also help boost a patient’s self-confidence, prevent further damage to teeth, and they can also help prevent shifting in teeth that surround an extraction site.
