Dental Crowns & Bridges Complete Casper Smiles
Dental crowns are designed to “cap” off the chewing surface of a single tooth, providing damaged or weakened structure with a lifelike restoration. This restorative option proves beneficial in a variety of cases, including:
- Large cavities that can’t be successfully treated with a common filling
- Structural cracks or fractures
- Overall weakening
- Correcting the aesthetic appearance of a misshapen tooth
- Restoring a tooth that’s been treated with root canal therapy or dental implants
The process of receiving a dental crowns usually takes two to three visits. Dr. Prach prepares the tooth in question and takes impressions that will be sent off to a trusted dental lab providing you with a temporary restoration in the meantime. Once our Casper office has received the finished product, she’ll securely place it and ensure that the patient is satisfied with the fit.
If you’re missing one or more teeth in a row, a dental bridge could provide the sturdy and confident replacement you’re searching for. Unlike removable partial dentures, a bridge is designed to fill the gap left by lost with additional dental crowns placed on either side as anchors that securely attach to adjacent healthy teeth. Like dental crowns, bridges can usually be created and placed in just a couple of appointments in Casper, WY. Implant-retained prosthetics resembling bridges are also available if you’re looking for a more permanent tooth replacement solution!
