Many of us have had the luxury of a porcelain crown on at least one of our posterior (back) teeth. These crowns are the protectors of recurring decay that breaks down our teeth even further than it already has. Hence, this is why a filling would fail – the decayed area has broken down too much our natural tooth structure. A dental bridge is similar to a crown, but bridges serve most of their purpose by replacing a missing tooth white anchoring to the adjacent teeth. Bridges are cost-effective and more esthetic than a removable partial denture.
There are many different types of dental crowns and bridges in Mesa AZ that your dentist may offer to you dependent on your wants, needs, and overall health. For example, if you have no existing crowns on your front teeth, we may suggest a CEREC crown to replace a bonded or fractured tooth. With this technology, you will leave our office with a permanent crown rather than having to wear a temporary crown for two to three weeks. On the other hand, if you have existing porcelain to fused metal crowns, we will possibly suggest that option to match the others.
Our same CEREC technology will also fabricate a bridge based on your dental needs. This is a great esthetic option, and you will avoid cracking your temporary bridge which can cause pain and sensitivity. Choosing a bridge to replace your newly extracted tooth will not only look more esthetic, but you will will enjoy the low-maintenance dental care that it entails.
Regardless of your dental situation, rest assured that we have many affordable treatment options that will have you looking and feeling your best in no time. At Mesa Dental, we have only the highest quality of materials to choose from in order to offer the best long-term dental care for our valued patients. We look forward to working together with you to develop a treatment plan that will have you showing off your smile again in no time.
