Crowns And Bridges Thousand Oaks
Most dentistry looks like dentistry – but at our practice, our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable.
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns
- Replaces missing teeth
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Looks completely natural
- Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems
Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
Dental Bridge Options
A bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth. This device attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable. Missing teeth can and should be replaced.Missing teeth can and should be replaced as if you fail to replace them it can lead to a decline in jaw bone density, which can cause numerous dental problems which can result in extracting and even a distorted facial profile.
Fixed bridges – A great way to restore your dental health and appearance, a bridge (fixed partial denture) is a device which fills the gap where teeth are absent. Fixed bridges are bonded into place and can only be removed by a dental professional.
Removable bridges – As the name implies, can be taken out and cleaned. Fixed bridges offer more stability than their removable counterparts.
Dental health is the most important reason for a bridge. Teeth were designed to complement each other. Unusual stresses are placed on the gums and other oral tissues when teeth are missing, causing a number of potentially harmful disorders.
