Missing teeth can mar your appearance and can cause serious problems with simple functions like chewing and speaking properly. Fortunately, dental restorations like crowns and bridges are often the perfect solution to give you back a whole and healthy smile. At Tysons Dentistry, our goal is to provide our patients with exceptional dental care that offers solutions for problems like missing teeth or teeth that have been compromised by damage or decay. Dr. Shahram and Dr. Sanati have extensive experience in creating durable, natural-looking dental restorations that will give you many years of use. We work with the best dental labs to create crowns and bridges that return your teeth to their full function and give you a smile you can be proud of. Our state-of-the-art dental laser allows us to comfortably prepare your gums for placement of dental crowns to ensure a perfectly natural fit. Uses for Dental Crowns Crowns are used to entirely cover, or “cap,” a damaged tooth to strengthen and improve its appearance, shape, or alignment. Specifically, crowns can be used to: Strengthen a tooth with a large filling Protect a weak tooth from fracturing Cover a dental implant Strengthen and protect a tooth after root canal treatment Disguise a discolored or poorly proportioned tooth Dental Bridges A dental bridge is a dental prosthetic that is used to fill the space left by a missing tooth. This is referred to as a fixed bridge. The bridge is usually made as a single unit, including an artificial tooth and crowns that attach to adjacent teeth. A dental bridge not only improves your appearance, but it also prevents surrounding teeth from shifting out of place and moving into the space left by a missing tooth. One inherent problem associated with dental bridges is the strain and structural stress that they place on surrounding natural teeth. At Tysons Dentistry, we can use a dental implant to anchor the bridge to take the pressure off your natural teeth and ensure a comfortable fit. Whether you are having a crown or bridge placed, the preparation process is basically the same. First, we will evaluate your oral health so we can make the best decision as to which type of restoration is most appropriate for your situation. We then take impressions that are sent to a top dental lab where your restoration is custom-crafted. When you return for your next visit, we adjust the restoration as necessary to ensure a perfect fit and a fully functioning tooth.
