CROWNS & BRIDGES
Precision Dental Center offers many advanced services. As a respected Oklahoma dental office, we offer many popular aesthetic enhancements.
Crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function. A bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth. One type of bridge consists of crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them. Another type of bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages. Bridges can also be supported by dental implants. Crowns and bridges can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination to provide optimal aesthetics. Some metal-free crowns and bridges incorporate stress-bearing materials to enhance their strength and wear-resistance.
Crowns address aesthetic needs, restore tooth function, and enhance the overall health of your mouth. In cases where teeth have large, broken-down fillings, a crown can protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth. To enhance your smile, a metal-free, tooth-colored crown can also replace an older metal or porcelain one. Following root canal therapy, a crown is typically placed over the remaining tooth structure to preserve aesthetics and tooth function.
In cases where teeth are missing, a bridge prevents the remaining natural teeth from shifting so that dental health and facial aesthetics are not compromised. Bridges may also provide a permanent, non-removable alternative to removable partial or full dentures. Whether supported by natural teeth or implants, bridges can offer life-like aesthetics and stable chewing surfaces. The bridge can be easily maintained by brushing, with modified brushing, and flossing.
At Precision Dental, we offer “Same-Day Crowns” by utilizing the CEREC digital impression system and milling unit. This system allows us to perform preparations, digital impressions, and crown designs while you wait. Most restorative dentistry procedures require multiple visits to the dentist to complete treatment, but we will have you out of the office with a healthy crown in the same day! Compared with earlier techniques, CEREC makes treatment easier and much more convenient.
