Keywords: Crowns And Bridges

A number of procedures and restorations used in cosmetic dentistry are for adding beauty to the smile. Some are used for repairing the function as well. Two restorations commonly provided at the practice of Parker-Read Dental are dental bridges and dental crowns. Crowns and bridges are porcelain restorations that may or may not be fused to metal to provide extra strength and durability. These restorations are fabricated custom for each patient and are then bonded over the natural teeth. Crowns and bridges tend to last several years when patients maintain them with proper care. They are commonly used to address dental concerns that make patients feel unsure about their appearance or self-conscious about the way they look when they smile, laugh, or speak to others.
